Screwston, Texas

Hey, Look: Chief Keef, Kanye, Future, 2 Chainz, Delo, Etc.

No dalliances, do wayward (and likely unrelated) anecdotes, no nothing. Just good, interesting music:

Chief Keef, "I Don't Like": There are some details* behind this song that might be interesting to, like, 80 people or so, but mostly this song is important because IT FUCKING ROCKS TITS. Plus, its spine, the acerbic claim "That's that shit I don't like" functions beautifully as quip, both in real life and on Twitter, the second of which might even be more important than the first, which is either really cool or really sad, depending on if you're my dad or not. Amar'e Stoudemire's braids? That's that shit I don't like. Wearing pants while I eat? That's that shit I don't like. So on and so on.

*The most compelling subplot: Kanye and 'dem made a remix that sucked. The producer of the original version took to Twitter to cut it up. It was the first time that Kanye ever looked so uncool. And it made me way sadder than I was anticipating. Ooh, since we're here....
