  1. I forgot that Friday was only supposed to be a one-song day and jumped the gun. But, then again, Jaysus had already broken the seal for Round 8 yesterday.
  2. Big Boi’s still finding the time to put that bump off in your eye. Round 7: Big Boi ft. Killer Mike & Jeezy - Kill Jill
  3. You’d probably also like “Half Crazy” and “Love Ain’t Enough” off their previous album, Sleeping Operator. I was pretty blown away by them when I first saw them perform live a few years ago. It’s two real brothers, one on guitar and one on drums/keys, and a girl who plays a giant harp on stage.
  4. Round 6: Brand New - 137 A song about man’s reflections in a post-apocalyptic nuclear holocaust. I like the wordplay of “atom/Adam” in this verse.
  5. The album was apparently always scheduled for the official release in January 2017, but Killer Mike and El-P blessed us with a Christmas miracle by releasing it to the streaming services early. I don’t think you can hold them out of the 2017 best album rankings based on that, especially considering that the hard album wasn’t available for purchase until 2017.
  6. Yeah, unfortunately, I think RTJ3 has been unjustly excluded from some 2017 best album end-of-year lists based on its Christmas Eve 2016 release, even though it was released too late to make any of the 2016 lists. Or maybe some people are just still sleeping on them. But I think it is clearly fair game under the rules here.
  7. Pop chorus of the year, IMO. The stripped-down version that she played on the Daily Show last night was kind of haunting.
  8. It’s about time that I take my favorite song from my favorite album of the year, “Run the Jewels 3.” It was technically released early to Spotify last Christmas Eve, but physical copies of the album weren’t released until January 2017, so it counts as far as I’m concerned. Killer Mike’s opening verse on this track is one of my favorite verses of the year. Round 5: Run the Jewels ft. Danny Brown - Hey Kids (Bumaye)
  9. I hate to double-up on the same album this early, but I strongly considered this song in the first round and it’s by far the biggest hit on my list right now. One of the best songs from one of the best albums with one of the best videos of 2017. A fourth round steal, IMO. Round 4 - Kendrick Lamar - HUMBLE.
  10. Yeah, I was debating between a couple other songs on the album, but I just really like something about the dreamy slow build to the climactic guitar solo in “i used to.”
  11. I’d be in for this, as long as the old guys don’t mind some well-curated rap selections. I’m excited to check out the final FBG playlist.
  12. I was on the Strip near Planet Hollywood when the shooting happened. We saw some people running from the music festival in a panic. We went back to the Aria lobby where we are staying, but then a crowd of people came sprinting into the lobby yelling "Run! ####### Run!" and that more shooters were coming. They evacuated the Aria lobby, and we're all locked up safely in our room now. It's not exactly clear what prompted the people to say that more shooters were coming, but it seems like it was around the same time that people were reporting possible shots fired at the New York New York. I haven't heard any confirmation of that. The whole Strip is lit up with police and ambulance lights. So unbelievably terrible. The video footage is horrifying.
  13. The jerk seasoning itself is only moderately spicy, probably in the 5-6 range. They also make an Extra Hot Jamaican Jerk seasoning, which has a higher concentration of scotch bonnet peppers. I mainly used the Regular with a few dashes of Extra Hot to keep it palatable for my guests. My final product was probably in the 7-8 range with the extra scotch bonnet hot sauce and habanero peppers in the sauce. Enough to give a slight forehead sweat, but not overwhelming painful heat.
  14. I use this Jamaican jerk seasoning from my local specialty spice shop, which is the best jerk seasoning that I've found. They use scotch bonnet peppers in their seasoning, which helps impart the authentic heat and flavor of Jamaican jerk.
  15. Thanks! I'm sure the same technique would work well for legs and thighs -- maybe just a little less time on the smoker. I'm sure jerk chicken thighs would be great.
  16. I made some smoked bone-in jerk chicken breasts yesterday that turned out pretty great. I made a jerk marinade/sauce from jerk seasoning, olive oil, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, fresh squeezed orange and lime juice, ginger, garlic, honey, and scotch bonnet pepper hot sauce. I marinated the breasts overnight, smoked them over hickory and peach wood for about an hour and 45 minutes while basting occasionally with jerk sauce, threw them on my gas grill for like 5 minutes to crisp up the skin, and then returned to the smoker for another 15 minutes or so with another slathering of jerk sauce. The chicken was so tender and juicy with crispy skin and explosive smoky jerk flavors. I'm definitely going to use the same technique of finishing on the grill for future smoked chicken endeavors. Smoked jerk bone-in chicken breasts with cilantro coconut lime rice
  17. I've got a buddy that I went to law school with at University of Michigan Law who is a former prosecutor and currently does criminal defense out of Ann Arbor. He seems to get a lot of good results for his clients, has published a few books about criminal defense, and his AVVO reviews are pretty glowing. I think he does lots of alcohol and drug-related work being based in a college town. Might be worth checking in with him. Here's the link to his AVVO page. https://www.avvo.com/attorneys/48167-mi-jonathan-paul-3740942.html
  18. I've always found it hard to put together an all-time greatest rappers list because so many of the greats are parts of groups whose classic collective works are inseparable. So, here is my all-time greatest rapper list that includes group acts as single artists while also taking into account their solo projects in the rankings. My top rappers within each group are ranked in parentheses. My rankings are based on four equally-weighted categories: (1) lyrics; (2) flow, (3) beats, and (4) consistency and depth of the entire catalog. 1. Outkast (Andre 3000, Big Boi) 2. Run the Jewels (Killer Mike, El-P) 3. 2Pac 4. Nas 5. Biggie 6. Wu-Tang Clan (Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon) 7. Kendrick Lamar 8. N.W.A. (Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E) 9. Rakim 10. Eminem 11. Jay-Z
  19. Sick new song from two of my all-time favorites: Big Boi ft. Killer Mike & Jeezy - "Kill Jill"
