That Was The Week Of May 26th, 2014, That Was

36 Saves

36 Saves

Week 23

Sports: The Rangers have made it to the Finals of the Stanley Club, but, while hockey is not, by any stretch of the language, football, and of the big three team sports comes in last, I will absolutely take, It is much more fun than watching LeBron and the rest of the Heat toying with NBA teams for fun and profit, before slaughtering them.

Whither Hip Hop? – This has proven to be the weakest year for hip hop since I don’t know when. It’s not that it is good or bad, it is that there doesn’t seem to be any new hip hop around. Last year Drake, Kweezy, Jay Z, J Cole, Kendrick, half the Odd Future crew, loads more, released new album. This year we are sitting round waiting for Chance, The Rapper’s new album. This is the first year since I’ve been doing rock nyc where there is no rap in the top 20 albums of the year.

Recorded: Yes, the Mariah Carey album has a crap name and it is way too long but it owns the week hands down.

Live: Another quiet week with only A-Trak and Cam’ron representing. Plus I missed out on Sam Smith though I did get a tix to Dave Chapelle -the definition of bad planning.
