Nazi collaborator y'All Nazi collaborator ill-gotten Gains Van Bike I mean so. Spiritually no let's not even. That feels like that's not correct either I mean aesthetically is Christopher plummer.

"With the with migos. Ever released. On Tanna. God. Okay. You'll girl got no s you need the buy one yet make that was like a I remember that song that was it was a very weird time. Well, it's just that I bring up the Connie leaks specifically because I think those leaks I think just specifically because I hated all day all day sounded like the most garbage song and is vindicated because when that song actually finally released, it was like immediately forgotten. Entire hype was about the fact that it like people that got their hands on it before Gandhi released it but as an actual song ship brick because it's bad and yet like monotonous but I just remember the Connie leaks would happen. So frequently and there'd be so much of S- plunking online spelunker surrounding like getting hands on them that I felt this kind of guilt after point of like yellow it kind of sucks if you if you're making something like imagine you're writing a straight, you're writing an essay, your column, and then somebody just in your Google drive before you got all the teak as out, you've done any sort of line editing and they just like Yama publish this. You would be mad. You would be upset. Yeah. Long at that's absolutely true but people don't dance to the things that I right but he doesn't I still think. The same. Principle is worthy say is is is more or less the same I, mean like his t was talking about the search. Around at an I wanNA say was at some point during like you know that weird summer were kind as like seven song albums for all my roster people yeah but he was just like you know it sucks because it's like when you WanNa you WanNa. Make an event out of a song and you can't do it because like it's already in the streets. Unfinished Mike doesn't hit the same when finally shows up. And that's always the case like I mean anything that I've seen in. The most far whether it was. seeing Bobby Bish by Bobby Schmertz on for. The? First. Time. Or all day on Youtube for the first time? Pick up the phone on instagram for the first time Travis. Scott. On the that was how I saw that for the first like it's always not as is never as good. Right. But even then I, there's a sense in which sometimes like. I don't know there is a sense in which even though it's not as good, it can still feel like part of the official or semi official process for getting a song birthing it into the world show versus times when it feels like Oh, this is robbery like you guys just kind of took this thing out of like a half. Day is is. Is like I mean there was also those that spate of drake leaks. In Quarantine or was it I don't know if there's a quarantine but earlier in the year like you know. He had like one of the records was like big moves on like himself. That was fairly obviously like drake made these songs out they real songs but they're just like so undercooked that they couldn't have possibly been by you didn't mean for this to get out right. I. Said like three drake items. I'd say he didn't mean to get out of the. Drake episode even by those stand Scorpion I think he would to get out that was a he even by those sanders but I'd like I take your point though like there's a there is like. I was saying the difference between. The stuff of Good Friday's landing on my beautiful dark twisted fantasy you know like refined and lengthened and with like a lot of weird shit on it like extra. Of stuff on it later on, and then like life of Pablo delay, hey guys are putting out this album at Madison Square garden with fashion. And albums, GonNa come out on Tuesday and album comes out on Wednesday evening and then like on Friday. He's tweeting about I'm a fixed wolves like you know that's a different thing it like very ad hoc in like manic and rushed and so on. So forth. Right. And But that'd be like, even that feels like distinct from what we're talking about like. Bear are like instances where it feels like it's part of like you know the that the artist is testing the market so to speak. and. Then there are times when it just feels like somebody was just like, oh Day did log out of their computer before they left the studio or whatever. Yeah. Do you think Jay Electronica will ever like successfully merged into? A sort of conventional release because that's the thing is like jalen truck at this point exists almost entirely as a guy who releases. Sporadic fashion whose music is sort of. Again it's sort of. found. soundcloud insensitive. The rollout for it feels like it's kind of ret conned into existence as opposed to being like a commercial grade artist who has album rollouts do you can you imagine jay? Electronica after all this after act two after written testimony after feeling like all of his his albums so far have been generated via like time travel. I'm trying to imagine a world in which Jay. Electronica just sort of acts like all the other rappers who roll out albums in a timely. Conventional Fashion never have. Never, why is it just because he's too weird like lots of are weird yes. I mean like it's literally like I. I think that it is. I I think that it's like it's part of his. It's part of his whole deal like I mean it is. Like jalen trauma, is, less. As less Jay Z. than he is like, John. Deck like he's a he's a musical. Idea like he it's not like he's too much of an artiste to release on a regular album cycle it's never going to happen. Yeah. You know what it is. I thought when I was listening to act to as like some some for whatever reason bits of this remind me of a spike Lee movie the. Terence Blanchard. and then I realized it in it's that to your about him being.

"Captivating. Even though like I said in certain ways. A written testimony does not feel like it captures the full scope and depth of J. electrons personality. he's really good at sort of gesturing at the idea that the reason why that's the case is because he's lived a full and exhausting life and he's too tired to give you that album. Yeah I'm I offer that idea that album you know yeah. You. GotTa point yet avoid. cheesy. On the other hand your sounds like like no. Absolutely, not yeah. Jay Z. Jay Z. Some of the most reprehensible wrapping of Jay z's career happens on that unwritten testimony. To this day I just I blacked out. It says a lot I unbalanced really love written testimony despite the sheer percentage of it. That consists of. that. All of those g parts. Okay. So when everybody like you know in the odds of March was like. Rejoicing about finally getting their Jay, Electron Akaba. Muir you know online. Twitter searching for a written test devoted no Jay z version I should have done that. Do you know racket finds such version of? Foreign testimony, I would love to hear it. We would love to hear that and now, but like you do remember like you know you know the Didn't know x version of. Whatever you remember when that was a fake absolutely. So many rappers metro here. Absolutely. Let's talk about that a little bit actually that era of you know Internet. Folkestone Suva tour tumbled out because visions of sugar plums for all. You also. Don't make no sense. Dale. NFL benching want. Pan George L. I have stayed in a sat. took. Okay, I was. I was honestly confused by. The act to release because I thought it was a leak. So. He's more or less how it went. one of the producers at work on the project, and again, I cannot remember which one bike was like him. Ed J elect conspire to put the project on soundcloud because it's been long enough. You know the president is dying. In this on Soundcloud Weeks Ajay like expert, we knew in the beginning of the jail like wanted we. Knew fairly like we do in the beginning that like it was. That they were involved somehow not necessarily that it was an official thing but tech was jailed traffic was tweeting through it and so as just blaze being like you know. This isn't the final version it's real, but it's not the final version and jail I traffic being like. we're working on sample clearances. So we can you know release the album officially an and it was on Monday morning that the album went up for streaming on title officially. So that's like the the way that it. Is So. It's like you have that cushion of like forty eight hours or the entire or however long. To get a reaction to the thing in the world are fucking whether they not fucking with it. which is like a truncated version of what Kinda Day with Good Friday, which is what I was talking about earlier right I just didn't know how to react to the. Act to release at first because I was just like Zeev, and because this is again, this is one of those things where it's like the difference of being on twitter and not right is like I just assume that this is elicit contraband torrent. Don't want to review that this illegal people can't hear that they can't legally obtain that get out of here. Said like a lot of consumption of rap music has been that kind of contraband anyway. So I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about. Yeah I don't know like. It's weird because Jay Electric has career. Consists of. Singles that weren't really singles and leaks that materialized on soundcloud with no explanation and that I mean. Again, his debut album came out this year despite the fact that guy's been around for more than a decade which means that his entire. I, don't know if Jay Electric a fan you've subsisted on leaks. For the guys entire run time you know yeah. rappers like that. You know that. There are like. fugger. Hugged. Uzi playboy. Cardi anybody that runs for that like that. That learned from that made to thousands Gucci Wayne version of recording where it's just like I need to be laid down thoughts all the time like they. Also they all have like a lot of just random shit photograph on the Internet like I mean like there was literally last year and instance where a playboy Cardi Song was like leading the spotify viral chart. Pissy? Pamper. which was also don't kid cutty Viggo a dude named Little Cambo who add spotify account specifically proposed saying like unreleased music on spotify. And like people were fucking with kid cutty or Pissy pay per so heavy that it was at the top of the viral, but it wasn't officially released. Right? Can we also talk about the truly Godawful Kanye period post life of Pablo when all the bad conde songs were like it was the all day it was like the the No, no no. That was before all day was before. Yeah. Your life of Pablo. Off. Leaks John Yes Yanti all starting with all day through the League Jess all at all of that. The worst cady wrapping you've ever heard but people like clamor is basically like Connie to the just. Stays at the Britta wars, our people not going to react to that. Anyway Yeah. Like that like all day was like originally like landed on the Internet, a couple weeks. I can't remember it was a couple of weeks or a month or two prior to the Brit awards and like it sounded like it was recorded on a flip phone outside of the studio with the door closed between the phone and the actual music. That's how bad the recording was. It sounds like it was a quarter in a toilet that Connie pissed on his grammy and that's where it sounds like it was recorded. The song remember the Connie Song it was like a leak.

"Testimony. Is, you know extensively J. Latronic is debut album on it. He Sees Ground Jay Z on eight of the songs and their ten songs. and. You know he he acknowledges as much because he's just like my debut, our my debut album future and holmen. This is highway robbery like he's like, you know it's unfair for that to happen. At the same time like it's a good project, but to me, it always sounded more like. You know a Jay Z. Album them whatever it was that you know Jay Electron was going to eventually come up with. it's it just felt like an album full of interludes to. I strongly disagree with that. I feel like I strongly disagree with a lot of the conventional wisdom about a written testimony specifically as it relates to Jay z's presence on the album. Okay. I really like a written testimony I think jazzy mostly sounds horrible on written testimony I didn't say that he sounds good or he upstages. That he acts as like daily traffic is by what I said was that he acts as jake traffic is tether right? Because he's all the US all not in the you know peel since I mean like as it literally. Keeping him from floating off into space. Yes. I think yeah. That makes sense to me I want to I. Don't even I don't think I'm disagreeing with you much. Feel. Like the critical consensus or at least I don't know I saw this this take a lot. During that rollout was that like man? Why did? Jay Electronica let Jay Z. get on his album and just constantly wash him which is very much not when I hear when I was in a written testimony I hear Jay Z. sounding like he is very lousy out of his depth and is trying to like shoehorn Mike Public Relations talking points that he's been meaning to make for the past eighteen months onto a jail electronica album and sounding kind of like a trump press conference inserted into a rally at because. He's like, yeah you can't criticize be for inking a deal with the NFL because you have no money you have to make any source yes like but he does that on a song that's otherwise jail Chanaka rapping about Islam. So she's like what wait what we're talking about the NFL. Now, where did this come from? That's what Jay z sounds like to me honoring testimony it's awful I mean. But I'm saying I, don't say Jay Z. Album in the sense of like. Him wrapping better or him being onto many of the songs, but I mean legitimately in the in the sound. Of the album, it sounds more like a project that Jay z would make a project that daylight try to make because like daily Chanaka is really fucking chaotic and. Despite like a written testimony having like being a pastiche of a bunch of different ideas. It's not lake. It doesn't feel like a repository of fifteen years of ideas like you would expect act to to be by saying that like he's keeps in the back room, it keeps every time that he comes back into the house. Changes something on it because he can't ever let it be finished. You know what I mean. That's the idea by an act which is why like? You know those things tend to come out really. Not Tight like mean. Jumbled. are feeling very awkward and undercooked an unfinished in certain points. Okay I like this contrast because I what I would agree to is that to me a written testimony feels. Very thoughtful. But in a very small way at least J. Electron look I actually totally get your points about it. Sound like a Jay Z. Album. Let's say in composition. But in terms of jail like China is doing on a written testimony. I think is very thoughtful and it feels very artful in a way that feels a controlled and I think the country's your drawings right? which is that act to sounds so much more chaotic and frankly sloppy it turns but that's also hind. What's good about J. Electron says that You know he's outlier though yeah. Like you get so much more cleanly from act to that jail tron bureau like Oh right this guy is a Weirdo yet there's not that much. Reappears disappears for five to seven years at a time and is doing like, Richard, Branson Shit Elma the other side of the world and it's like it's no there's no like it's such a weird story and It would like a here project from him would make no sense to. Yeah. I think two. So t to that. Like it's weird, it's the sort of older jail. Tonic album is the newer one way a written testimony is like. The more recently made thing. And I don't know eight. This sort of London recently released thing I feel like this the songs are like kind of more or less locked in. Yeah. Fires ago why yeah 'cause like A written testimony has like you said, like it has songs that we'd heard before a shiny suit theory and. I don't know I. Kind of am still trying to make sense of the difference between how act to sound as a preservation would sounds like a preservation of a decade ago versus a written testimony which sounds like when I say it sounds more controlled him. We're thoughtful. Part. What I'm saying is that it sounds like it's made by an artist who knows that he kinda missed his moment. What I mean yet, we know what it is. Is that when? I say. that it sounds more like a Jay Z. Album. It sounds more like an album that someone at this stage of his career would make. This is like the album that you may after like your gimmick is sort of run out. This is the left turn album or the enlightened one that you make after. When you're in the twilight of your career? Yes. That's the album that he has to make for the like that's his first album that is out in the world because. He didn't put out an album for needed but as David Virginia's and things, I'd like he explores that somewhat on testimony he has some angst about. I can't remember what what what record it's on, but he's just like you know. Talk about when I look in the mirror, all his laws. What I look. Kerala Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah at the end of dishes like I'm GonNa put this out mousy August pit be apart like it's just like It's interesting. Sure and it's definitely the most recently made one of the two and I think when I find impressive about is sort of related to what I said earlier on right which is that when Jay Electronica I blows up right Twenty years if he was like fifteen years ago at this point. We're like a decade ago. He already sounds old. He already sounds like self-consciously like old already. Travelers too old for this shit already. So then when he comes back with the written testimony and sounds like the old version of an artist who already I think there's something to the fact that he he comes in to the game sending like this world weary traveler, and then he makes an album where he really sort of triples down on that idea and actually sells me on it like written testimony I really do listen to that album with a sense of. Oh. Wow. He sounds like There's like a Tommy Lee Jones character quality to him where there's just the sort of dying light in his eyes on every song year they mean and there's something in that I just found really..

"Yet says Fatty Villa. Though like this album, some actually kinda reminds me a damn by Kendrick a little bit in you know in a specific sense that like. Again, it's like a product of its time thing. This album is so self consciously prog Lee is doing a lot of like. Lake I get it. You you WANNA be Black Pink. Floyd. I get it I get it. Yeah. Face the facts no I mean that's true. Though, but the thing is that. You are saying this about act to like a written testimony doesn't begin with once upon a December. Why? Make I'm just saying it's like he's extra all the time and It's I I'd say that like I say that knowing that act to definitely is the more extra of the two. For sure it's just here. I think act to stuff feels extra, which is good because his jail Chanaka and I think he had like like J. Electric Quirks, personality Quirks Canco Quirks eccentricities you know, but I think act to is extra but also kind of disjointed. Like even the stuff and that feels rough. Even the stuff that remind you that like Oh. Yeah. This feels like you're probably actually wasn't finished finished. It feels like they got it out. For one reason or another, but it feels like it has this deliberately unfinished quality to I. Don't even mind that to me. It's just that like. There's there's some tonal whiplash to me a little bit. songwriting on like a production level, some of the transitions, a lot of the. It's well with. Shell a similar thing like when. Life because say for instance, road to perdition. And Chinese suit theory which she tested ended up with three jail traffic approaching. Shiny. Like twenty thirteen or twenty i. The thing is that like you've also hoped road to perdition around. The same time to with better to infinite. Song by the way. Best Trunka Song, but into it the infant. Son's name. I mean like that is in keeping with the legacy of that. Maybe that's why it feels so good Friday, because that's what how did with. That's what he did with my beautiful dark twisted fantasy by. Final track for that came out. People were complaining about how many of the songs weren't new. And then they were on the album and they were like longer weirder and had all this weird stuff you do with the machine on it and so on. So forth. But I think that your complaint is that it's more like the life of Pablo which is where he tried to do the same thing. The whole album out and it was like a collection of. Lake. Seventeen different ideas that were all like really interesting but didn't belong together and then tried to fix it after the fact after it was already out yet although my problem Pablo is ahead the whole middle of album like once you get to the Chris Brown Song Anyway I'll digress but I register my. World. Yeah. But I mean is I'm just tried to situate how you feel about two genera tracker project you right. But I don't know to me it almost it. It still feels like you're saying this act to is more like life of Pablo. Bennett is like my beautiful dark twisted fantasy the really what I feel is that act twos more like. The good. Friday stuff that didn't make it onto my beautiful dark twisted fantasy than it is like either. It just feels like. Again I don't know I almost feel like. ACT TO PATENTS OF. The turn and a written testimony should have been combined into a single album called written testimony. You're I mean. I don't know yeah. Especially, but we let's just talk about a written testimony. We need to about this the the debut stretch solo debut album Jay electronica literally caused the corona virus. We're GONNA talk about it. Let's go. Sleeping on the train. About away without even the slice of pizza to my name to proud the change master. When New York was called southern rappers. Lane.

Distracted driving is a serious problem on our roadways leading to the deaths of thousands of people and injuries in the hundreds of thousands each year.

I did I did write about a written testimony when it came out of my column Banned the diary of like being like I I I was just like, oh, we needed an excuse to feel good. It's great to see to rappers at the at the piece of their powers rapping together. We could use it sort of win I. Now have a my opinion to say that we should have no excuses to feel it. Takes up the town. What happened I mean well. Happen but. Anyway. Written testimony..

"Like he was already like a mega rich banker and. I'm a raffle the. I don't know that I was billionaire philanthropist. I don't know if I ever got that sort of lake already a billionaire, but I always, it is infant Sarah sometimes that. I'm talking about, but it's like the flip side of it is like I'm the first time I heard Jay like Chanaka as a Oh, this negative forty five he's clearly. They. It's one thing when. We have all sorts of conspiracy theories about rappers, secret ages, jail Chanaka really did come on the scene with that he he feels very deliberate. His vibe of I'm older than you. Yeah. I I am Big Brother I. Like that was that was really I mean it really did feel like innocence of like like win. Jay Electronica songs would come up. You know once. Every. Full Moon in the Seventh House and Jupiter, is aligning with Mars like it 'cause I mean like if there was no, there was no release schedule. He was your every time. You got a song from you're just as likely not to hear from them again. Yeah. But every time a song came out. It was like big Bro is speaking. Yeah. Yeah. But in this album comes out and there's album I think act to. rather than I mean it's funny because you talked about the idea of hymns that have sanding away at a thing for a decade and a half. but in a way to this, actually strictly act two strikes me is It doesn't sound like a written testimony sounds like written testimony sounds like something that came at the end of a long process and we'll talk about it later in the episode but actually to me sounds like. Almost feels like it's. Scene in Jurassic Park where they explained in how the dinosaurs were and there is like the Kito Oh in the amber. Data, showers you know they've fossils in the sap and I. It's just like that's what it sounds like to me. It sounds like a fossilized record of an earlier thing. What I'm saying is that this was This was that was that the theology around this album despite what the first one would despite to release already sounded light. That's that was the mythology around activity was that like this was his you know. He. Could never finish it because it was as masterpiece sort of situation. And I mean like. I guess we'll just get it. You know what is this? Is. It A. is it a masterpiece? No absolutely not I'm not I'm not saying that I'm like the we'll get. I have not to say about written testimony at your affinity for it. But let's talk about act too because like. More I get the ideally that mythology, right? So overloaded this sort of genius at work mythology and. You know another thing I mean when I say that act to feels like a preservation of peach `electronic is it it really does feel like it's preserving a lot of trends and sort of general signatures in in like I said the major the major label rap music of the time and I think that's really true. In like the production of act two, which feels very much like that like we were talking earlier you know we're sort of hashing this episode out and I was like this reminds me so much of Good Friday's like candy as Good Friday's. Lake Lord Lord Lord and stuff like that when you could just tell that. Konya and people sort of in that Lake jazzy prestige orbit where trying to come up with this sound that were rap music just sounded expensive. Like they were trying to create this. They were trying to create visa that that could fill stadiums, but also they could wear leather skirts do. It's It's like hotel lobby music but I don't mean that as a business as early you know yeah. Yeah it's Specifically, at the Mondrian, not like you know just any hotel lot. I'm not just anybody hotel lobby music. You know it's yes. That's one of the to the signatures on that. You know when this album's recording because it's like Jay electronica rapping about Sophie Towel Jalen, laughing about. No listen but also on rough love there was that she had ads like Rosa Costas she had a wreck like agile across lie and I was just like Rosa Kosta. It's like and then also also I know you peop- The like a Bonnie and Clyde record. Yeah I. Like that Yeah I mean it's good. Serge Gainsbourg like everybody was just like Oh this reminds me of. XYZ This Blah Blah Blah and by immediate I thought was the cavalry seat in Russia three because that's when lake, the love interest arrives the fridge. Model. Say Bonnie and Clyde yeah I mean like honestly It would be so hilarious me if it had nothing to do with like Jay like traffic is friendship with Serge Gainsbourg the included that solvent literally that like it happened in the reverse that he was watching rush hour three and he was like, Damn that's tight saw and need to sample that which honestly feels more likely to be i. I honestly think that the streak of like artistic choices that he's made is like you of definitely definitely thought of this alot by watching TV. Yeah And it's like I like I like a lot. I like a lot of the stuff on act too. I like a lot of the sort of nouveau riche. Again. Like. Early, two thousand, ten's decision making the feels like it went into the production of this album. Now. I was going to say also. I think was Andrew fake shore drive twitter like pulled up the he actually had the screen shot. from the original. The original tracks that glide J electric posted on twitter late two, thousand, twelve. And I the track list is mainly the save minus like some conde features of Mike. Erica by do feature think which I'd be like is obviously lot nothing but like of changed. You I bad track to does it say Erica? Do has her twitter handle.

"New Jail Tonic album from a few months ago. Was the title Michael was title of this album is act two patents of nobility the long. Leg I mean. This is the album that we were supposed to get when a written testimony came out on January. Two months ago like basically there were. or sorry excuse. Me Wasn't a January was that March march it's important that his march. March. Because he's dropped it like you know daring. You know when the play was kicking off like? It's basically like a equality of J. Latronica is music is that it's very like syncretic and pulls in a lot. Of APOCRYPHA, from different religions like is very spiritual, but then very worldly and. Before it came out there were a lot of hope set me in talking about open your third eye and whatnot. Yeah, it's all. It's just specifically the week that the previous album written testimony came out it was it was the week win corona virus like I was been around for bit. It was the week though in Corona virus came out to the hate me now music you know Escobar season has return in. It was just lockdown everything I locked down. Donegal. Yeah. Yes. That is more or less what happened. But what I was saying was that before the album came forward and testimony came out you know there were news items about how? It was going to be called written testimony at not act to this is not acting to you're not getting detox. You might as well just go ahead and like you know forget all about it is a new chapter I did that when I was wild like you know this is this is my actual debut out of his debut album again after. Like coming out like two thousand seven right but forget the no, we talk about the debut album now because that was all flag anyway. Yes, we. Do. Yeah. It was a stopgap. It turns out because but that go okay. All right. All right. Miss you be Amandus Grad and like I being at like I'm not the okay. So listen. Your never mind I'm going to put a pin on that because we need to come back around to the structure of a written testimony. And why you are wrong and I am correct. Okay. So But for act two This is the thing. This is his baby. This is the this was his magnum opus that he was like chipping away at for thirteen years in the dark while people were on twitter being like when a win is the Messiah covering but rap asya coming back. And then it leaks don over the past weekend it was actually his managed was as manager. remember it was one of the producers put the album up on soundcloud basically but it was like I want you to hear it. It's not finished. Like we have sample clear as issues that we still need to sort out but you know. Listen to this before lawyers get involved to take it down. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Sample clear I mean this is definitely A. One of the most notable things about act to to me right is that is very much. So feels like a preservation of an earlier time instead of. You know triple a rap music against like high production value you know million dollars sample rap music and it's also a preservation of what was that of. Peak J. Electron Ika hype. Yes, that's what it. Yeah. Yeah. Let's let's Geo locate that like win. was that exactly. Okay. So Act One which was like you know him. Weaving all these intricate rhymes over you know. Selections from the eternal. Sunshine of the spotless mind score of and doing all this like at just weird shit that stuff that like a guy for like a rabbit Forbid Orleans, you wouldn't think of as doing it was just a very lake. Do Your Dungy basement weeds vote everywhere. I've been watching. Like other people type of rat music. You're like green point. Brooklyn. But anyway like it was just very you know it had internal rhyme schemes on top of like you know be a rap music that obviously you know people like comparing him to poets instead of like other rappers sort of thing. And I think it like reached fever pitch in two thousand with exhibit C. which was like you know Ev- bats the Jay Electronica dial Muhammadi Lavaka. Thank like that the. The just blaze beat that which sounded like I mean as as many jokes as we got out of it on the back end. Yeah. Like win win it came out and when it was hitting it was. Really fucking hitting like. It's it's it was just like Gargantuan it felt it felt like listening to that song felt like stomping around in the actual iron giant. Yeah and it's funny. 'cause like just blaze beats just plays has like a particular style of in I'd say sort of peak just blaze and beyond. There's just a sort of maximalist ASS maximalism, right? It's like totally different from the way to my mind at least the way that like you will make beats on big. Lake. Just plays beats at their most maximum. Do feel like you're stomping around in a Makah and they I think later on and just blazes peak. He have had the problem of leg rappers really needed to have a kind of voice that could ride a just blaze beat and to me the people who could do it right like Rick Ross Rick Ross is very good at sit of. Basically Riding any be you throw at him? No matter how loud it is. And then like Jay Electron Ika on exhibit city. Well yeah it's like basically. that. The rapper. The way that like you like the Reverend's that could ride just waits feats like have voices that act like black holes of the production it's like you have to they have to. There has to be a center of gravity that pulls in all of that crazy like ornate reverve and hoards and like you know. All this other crazy shit that he uses that makes it sound like towering and massive. But you know. Yeah needs you need something at the center like organize it, and that was the thing that was like super surprising about jail Chanaka is that I mean. For a lot of people at that moment with exhibit see he just felt like abruptly like a new challenger has emerged in, he's of devastating is beat. With you know hand drug Nikola Tesla artwork on his single single artwork. I mean it's just It was just everything about it was so.

"Cool beats electronica this morning kind of rolling with on this cold cold cold southern California morning it's supposed to be like weird music is it's weird home design okay finally this weird music well I really good music I mean like just different okay I tried you succeeded I mean we music Jeez what is it going on here it's because it's cold it's because it's so cold dean Sharpe KFI am six forty you're listening to home a dean sharp the house was per before we took a break we had Stephanie on the phone I think she's hopefully she still on the phone Stephanie as a pony no she has a pony wall that means a short wall like a half wall I think out in her front yard and the paint is bubbling every time it rains and Stephanie are you still there I'm still here okay so quick question we're gonna get to the bottom of it when they were gonna get you some help paint is bubbling after it rains and you know we talked last segment about the fact that you're in a student of the show hydrostatic pressure all the stuff going to touch on that real briefly again what I'm not sure about is is this wall covered in stucco or is it just a brick wall stucco after the break and then paint okay so it's a brick wall they got covered in stucco and then painted yeah okay so on them yeah does the stucco go all the way down and touch the soil yes it does all right so heroes are here's the problem as you well know both the brick of the wall and the stucco especially the stucco Porras like a sponge sucks up moisture inside it when it's in direct contact with the soil that's why the building code actually does not want us running stucco directly down into the soil because it will through capillary action moisture will defy gravity and climb up into the wall if you don't believe me then I don't know what to tell you I know you believe me Stephanie but you know and anybody just put a sponge down on a wet surface and you will find water defying gravity in going up that's because water has a very high surface tension and so as it absorbs into a space of lesser volume like a sponge or a concrete sponge like what stucco is it will travel up the wall once it's there when it wants to find its way out it will push out on the paint from the backside thereby producing blisters and bubbles in cracks and shipping and all of that stuff so Stephanie the you gotta get the stucco at least the stucco portion yeah you may be too late to install a weeps greed at the bottom that's not the critical part especially with the garden wall the weed screed is just a special flashing that we put in when we build the house to terminate the stucco but at this point yeah you need a handyman or contractor with a a grinder or little concrete cutting blade on there saw to run along the bottom of this wall make a nice clean level cut on that stucco a good two or three inches up away from the soil chip out all the stucco that's below so that the edge of the state not so high that the wall look stupid but enough so that the stucco has got some clearance over the soil so that any moisture that gets into it and there was still probably be moisture because the brick itself that the stock was on his sucking up some moisture but the point is when he gets out to the stucco let's say the brick continues to slurp up moisture hands it to the stucco when it gets to the stucco instead of having to push out through the paint it can just simply percolate down it can drain down and get out of the bottom of the stucco because there's no soil under so not step number one we make it a nice clean cut all the way around and ship out that stucco step number two US that wall down get all that loose paint blistered off and we put on a really rich while the wall is dry we deny it it's now's the time to do it it's nice and hot weather we deny of water in that area it's so keep the sprinklers off for a bit dry out that wall then we put on a super good exterior grade primer so that would be when we re paint the wall the pain has something really that is bonding on to the the stucco really well the pain has something to grab on to so we're really good primer really good exterior paint for the wall and cut the stucco up and a handy man qualified handy man in your area should be able to handle that and there are other contractors that you can calls well I only see a handy man because it's a relatively small job it's kind of that one two three day project at most I don't know how long the wall is but so that's how it works and that is how you solve it and kudos to you Stephanie for listing this show and knowing all about hydrostatic pressure in the way that water pushes out from the backside stuff good for you all right when we come back I'm gonna throw some more weird stuff that you let's see what's on the list here let's talk about your stair railings what you can do with those how much freedom do you have when it comes to getting super creative with stair railings what I think is one of the best ideas ever for a young child's room specially toddler zone room as far as the writing on the walls are concerned the infamous my toddler has written all over the walls now what can I do and stuff do with stairs all right all of that when we come back you're listening to home with dean sharp the house was per Tessa but at at the man who pulled off a

I don't think machine gun Kelly is necessarily the media in wish we wish we wish it was said. But then again Eminem doesn't pick targets that will come back correctly. Like, for example, right now, Jay Electronica, who's a rapper out of New York City. That's kind of a mythical creature in hip hop. Very good lyricist, scientists cheesy all these things he's been taking shots Eminem has completely ignored them. We don't have the rapper that we want coming.
