The Tracks We Wore Out

d056facb9a0b9881ba31179ea8d4c320387845aa_m

Pitchfork just (somewhat prematurely) released their list of the top 500 tracks of the decade as part of their ongoing P2K: The Decade in Music series. But I guess someone had to kick off the end of the decade lists that are sure to start permeating our lives starting now. Regardless, it’s quite a feat for anyone to take on. When these things do inevitable come around, I love to turn them into playlists for my own bizarre entertainment. You see, I love lists, of any kind really. And these are my favorite kind. So I thought I’d take my playlist of Pitchfork’s top 50 tracks of the decade and put them up here. I’m sure someone will come along and put up all 500 somewhere, but that level of obsessiveness is for another fool to deal with. Enjoy.

Santigold

santogoldcut

Santigold is definitely one of the fastest rising stars in the indie/dance/hip hop game. It’s hard to pull cred in all those circles, but she’s done it. All this despite the fact that she’s had to change her name from Santogold to Santigold because of some C class DJ who’s been calling himself Santogold for some time now. A brooklyn DJ just dropped the new mixtape Southerngold which pairs Santi’s songs with verses from southern rappers. Her propper LP was one of the best albums released last year, and her colab mixtape with Diplo, Top Ranking, is easily my favorite mixtape released in a long while. All this and the countless remixes and guest spots are propelling her to the top fast.

I’m making this list of shows I want to see in the coming months. I’m sure I’ll only make like half of them, but I can dream. If anyone else wants to join in the orgy that is live music in the spring/summer, holla at me. I’m always down.

How to Rob an Industry Hipster

the_cool_kids

So there’s this italian wannabe rapper douche here in Philly named Phil Esposito (aka Big City Philadelphia ???) who recently put out a YouTube video/song called How to Rob an Industry Hipster. Blatantly tearing a page out of 50 Cent‘s pre-fame playbook with his song How to Rob an Industry Nigga, Esposito takes shots at the new class of cool in hip hop. Only this time around, the dude grasping at fame ain’t got no talent. And for some reason, Philadelphia Weekly picked it up and ran a cover story on him. Yikes. But it’s worth a listen. He takes shots at everyone from Kanye to M.I.A. to Q Tip to The Cool Kids (above). Thing is, if he’s looking to start hip hop beef, I think he chose the wrong crowd. Whoops. My guess is half these dudes don’t even eat beef. Fucking hipsters!!!
