Blogospheric Conditions – Spring In Sight

You pick the place and we’ll meet in the meadow, to discuss musical issues and tension. Twitter is a violent keg, did I forget to mention? Around the bloggasfear this week there was a lot of astute criticism going on, some of it scathing. I love it. Links after the jump.

I feel like NYC-based hip hop is viewed as this huge, illusory, often obnoxious and self-aggrandizing global corporate presence, but artifacts like this remind us that this scene is still a local scene, its players real people (for the most part).

O.C. – Starchild Beat Fanatic Remixes – In 2005, slopfunkdust and !llmind were asked to remix O.C.’s Starchild album. The project was eventually dropped, but as the ten minute sampler they turned into the label indicates, it would have made for a great album.

Based On A Two Way Street – Noz takes hip hop purists and their beloved artists to task, in response to the Twitter-furor surrounding Lil B’s collaboration with Phonte Fraggle, Jean Grae, and 9th Wonder. Brandon Soderberg also does a good job explaining why the collaboration is interesting but not nearly as strange as the Twitterverse makes it out to be.
