Can I Listen To Farrakhan's New Mixtape? P4K Gave It A 9.8
First off, let me just say fuck Chris Brown, fuck R. Kelly, and while I’m at it, fuck XXXTentacion and 6ix9ine as well. They’re abusers - the whole lot of them. I stopped watching Woody Allen movies. After I watched Nanette I even stopped supporting Picasso.
Now, that being said, am I allowed to bump Louis Farrakhan’s new mixtape?
I heard it was dope…
It’s a tight forty minutes and he really dives into that old head boom bap shit. Or at least I’m told.
Pitchfork gave it Best New Music. A 9.8. That’s the highest score since Merriweather Post Pavilion. IT’S A BIG DEAL.
I missed it upon its initial release, because I was really wrapped up reading about the Chris Brown rape allegations out of Paris. Not to mention I had just finished binging the R. Kelly documentary and then was out of town organizing a women's march. What I’m saying is that I’m a good person with a relatively airtight moral compass… but Pitchfork says it “undertakes a resplendent new vision of ‘hate-crime’ rap, adding a new joie de vivre to antisemitism.” Can’t I at least listen to some of it?
Needle Drop gave it a 10.
Don’t worry, I haven’t listened to it yet. I know I’m not supposed to, because of all the anti-semitic remarks Farrakhan is mostly known for nowadays. He once said Hitler was a good man, which like, nah. I understand that. But that was before Pitchfork told me he was spitting bars over the priciest Tay Keith beats on the market.
I just can’t help but feel like I’m missing out on some cultural milestone. If Farrakhan had been making mixtapes his whole life, I wouldn’t care. But out of nowhere he decided to drop a tape with five features no less!! J. Cole is on this damn album. Even 2 out of 5 Spice Girls get on a track. It’s monumental. Think about that. Just let that sink in. And Fergie is here too, rapping her ass off.
I’ve been a good boy in most other aspects of my life. Just please, please, please consider letting me bump Farrakhan’s new mixtape a few times. It’s called Oh NOI He Didn’t and it’s already topping Pitchfork’s Best Albums of 2019 list.
And I hesitate to say this, but I potentially can’t wait for his mixtape with Roman Polanski and the Jeep that killed Anton Yelchin.
