Cuz after seeing DaBaby on SNL his stock went down to me. No breath control at ALL and just generally goofy and unengaging on stage.

how you f--k up your OWN songs? Maybe those overlapping vocals don't translate well live. He need somebody rapping along with him, it doesn't feel the same.

>overlapping vocals

i dont know why that shit got so popular but it always sounds garbage.

if you dont have that much confidence in your own vocals then you should just lip sync.

he seems like a cool dude, but in the limited music I heard, his flow is repetitive.

what was once reserved for true talent, (sometimes) little known artists, eclectic sound, and acquired tastes in music, is turning into letting any and everyone on.

i cringed at that alert on my phone the other day.

Is it her content? Is it the level or artist? Or is it Megan specifically? Because that type of content has already been covered on Tiny Desk, and there have been bigger artists.

Personally I don't listen to those bitches. But.... folks like what they like and NPR can host which ever garbage rapper or stripper they like. Granted, they led some on to believe the people they would have on were only "sophisticated" musicians. And in the beginning, I was one of them. But that was my fault expecting only who I like to hear and see from NPR.

So, they're reaching out to all audiences. And good for them.

Say what you want, but this show makes its money off recontextualizing artists that the typical NPR audience likely finds synthetic, corporate or otherwise manufactured in some way. I think the Megan episode - much like the T-Pain, Mac Miller or Freddie Gibbs episodes - are a wonderful way of reimagining these artists for NPR's audience of people who play real music, have real talent and know their craft.


Whether you like the music or not, I think, isn't always the point of the show.

She’ll bore me with the triplet flow for a few bars then catch me off guard with “I’LL KNOCK THE SHIT OUT YO BITCH LIKE AN ENEMA”.

is one of the main reasons Chappelle walked off his show.

White folks loving degrading imagery of African people.

I guess it makes them feel better about themselves.

not even a little

the flow is irksome

the content is dry

she doesn't even make me laugh or raise an eyebrow

how the hell she make me like Cardi B more?

Megan sounds like the more polished rapper but holy hell...her and the dababy literally sound the same for 3 minutes straight

at least the dababy will make me chuckle here and there

i don't dig a lot of current mainstream stuff but i'm rarely mystified by it...i even find Lizzo's extraness entertaining at least...

i can usually get it and not be a fan but i don't get it at all lol
