J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, the rest of the TDE crew, Jay-Z, .. you dug yourself into a hole when you said "music" because I can go on for hours listing better musical acts.

Like Pitchfork said.. people who know hip-hop will likely, like me, glaze over when he goes into his little babbly flow. Not because it's complex.. because it is tired as fuck and makes no sense musically to do it over EVERY beat.
