Rolling Stone Magazine and others for decades have put forth the claim that the period from Buddy Holly's death to the Beatles' first US tour was a blank void where nothing important happened except a couple of shitty teen idols named Bobby so-and-so. This is all in spite of the Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul, and Mary, early Dylan, Neil Sedaka, the Shirelles, Roy Orbison, surf rock, Del Shannon, Hank Ballard, the Four Seasons, and many others.
Sure, most people prefer 1965 and up but is there a reason the first half of the 60s gets overlooked in rock histories so much?
Why are they so good? It's been fuck long since I searched good recent underground hip-hop mixtapes and I stumbled upon Worldcorp's music. It's fucking great. The MC sounds great, his flow is really fucking good for an amateur, albeit a bit bumbly and choppy sometimes, you can feel he got inspiration from guys like MF DOOM in tracks like High Stakes, where he got a similar tone, the same kind of pauses half way through a line and the emphasis on last words, the production (beats) is quality, even though some would say that it's poor because of the sound being overly noisy and choppy, but in my opinion it really just adds to the "bunch of shady teenagers jury-rigging their own mixtape in their basement" vibe they got going on. And I don't who makes the beats, but god fucking damn he's excellent at sampling, and his sample choices are pure bless, the producer really managed to grasp that mid 90's underground hip hop vibe. You can feel they were tripping balls while recording (the "a word from our sponsor" interlude is kek"), speaking of interludes, one of them really felt like it came from Operation Doomsday with the 80's cartoon villain sample, another point that makes me think they got inspiration from DOOM. The lyrics are also real nice, the MC manages to spit bars like: "All you guys big fakes, don't make no mistakes This ain't all we do, fuck all the critics More than one front man, check the analytics This money's got me turning my back on the misses Got a high PH 'cause I'm super acidic What does PH mean? "Penis hat"? Constantly change where I'm spending all my weekends at Never get used to where I happen to be sleeping at" Overall, great mixtape. I recommend everyone to go check it out, even though some my get repulsed by WorldCorp's pedo ARG thingy, and others by the pure internet teen angst present in some of the tracks lyrics, but it's worth it. I heard Worldcorp Ent Music Division turned into "AUTISTIC BOYS MONEY CLAN" from a YT Comment, can anyone confirm
