    Cool trailer. Hope the Downtown single doesn’t make it to the album.

  • Carl Vegas

    They can keep it! Their music don’t resonate with my culture.

    • Jay Zenith

      What do you mean “my culture”?

      • Carl Vegas

        Sorry bro, our culture! That come back downtown record was so fake and contrite. That good ol, I took all the hip hop grammys cause I am white, let me see if I can be cool with you guys and reach for the OGs. I’m good! And I am declaring WE good without him!

        • Jay Zenith

          But Kid Cudi gets a pass for making terrible alternative rock albums? Seems reasonable.

          • Carl Vegas

            Crazy thing is, Kid Cudi came in the game making weird music like that. He has never been a quote, unquote traditional hip hop artist. I respect him because he stands in the gap for those who dislike the fact that hip hop nowadays is about riding waves and not originality.

          • marty mcfly

            In Macklemore’s case he has a genuine respect for “our culture”. I don’t think he’s necessarily “trying” or pretending to be something he’s not. At the end of the day thats really what people in “our culture” want imo. Its a respect and a sense of artistic integrity involved in the craft thats not mocking or disrespecting “our culture”. Macklemore, Mac Miller, Eminem, Evidence, Alchemist etc… Imo they genuinely respect “our culture”. Imo alot of “our culture” needs to stop resonating with us because about 60% of rappers now wanna sound like, flow like and appear like anything they see Future and 2 Chainz doing and thats wack.

          • Guest

            How are we ever going to respectively coexist if we keep this immature pro-black mentality? We want respect from other races but don’t want to share a culture such as Hip Hop? Do you know how ridiculously childish that sounds? Do you even realize how many black artists milk the game for money aka “culture vulture” and it’s okay but as soon as a white person enters the discussion they’re immediately compared to Eminem or labeled a culture vulture because of their skin color. Find something better to do with your time than to be stingy about a genre of music that wasn’t yours to begin with. that’s unless you created Hip Hop and in that case, post a link with your contributions!

          • marty mcfly

            A “pro black mentality” is necessary because every other race thrives off having a “pro” mentality. Black people are subconsciously afraid of openly and unapologetically being pro black because for most of americas history that will get you killed. I do think black people have a right to have an “our culture” mentality when it comes to Hip Hop because too many black people have contributed to it to a degree in which black people should claim ownership of it. Any other so called “culture” that would be considered white? (Country, Rock, Classical etc…) Whites would look into any black people coming into it and in some why suggest they shouldn’t be there and should leave so therefore black people should do the same. When we talk about “culture vultures” in Hip Hop? Black people have a right to use their own culture to express themselves. White people should be able to do the same but there should be some checks and balances put forward by black people. Every race enforces their culture and runs checks on ANY other race coming in to participate and thats because they don’t fuck around when it comes to their “culture”. Black people are the only race that has an open door acceptance for every other race to be part of everything we do. No other race of people thinks like this.

            “Black people are the only race that has an open door acceptance for every other race to be part of everything we do.”

            Um? Thanks for the laugh! Just look at the comment sections on any Hip Hop site (including this one, actually right above this, Sonic is in top form) that features a caucasian rapper and trust me, this is not the case. Not sure where you get your info from???? Better luck next time!

          • marty mcfly

            Yeah thats right. Black people accept any fucking body to come join in everything we do. No other race does this.

          • marty mcfly

            In Country music? White people wanna know why the fuck you there if you black and you show up with a guitar.

            In Mariachi music? Mexicans wanna know why the fuck you there if you black and show up wearing a sombrero.

            In Indian Bali music? They wanna know who the fuck you are and why you there?

            If you not asian but you show up in a Chinatown parade with a dragon costume on trying to join in? They gonna wanna know who the fuck are you….

            Black people should be the same way in terms of Hip Hop “culture”.

          • SURFACE

            Agree!

          • Carl Vegas

            You are obviously white, respect bro! Sit back and soak in hip hop knowledge. But as far as your equality speech, this is not the forumn. Spit that equality stuff to the white cops in Furgeson or a black lives matter social board.

          • Guest

            Lmfao! Because you’re black you have more knowledge about Hip Hop than me? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL (DEEP BREATH) LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLOL! FOH

          • marty mcfly

            YES. As a black man coming up in a culture where Ice Cube, 2Pac, Public Enemy, KRS, Nas, Mobb Deep, Wu Tang etc… And a bunch of classic albums coming from other black men, I feel that they were all expressing themselves through a perspective that somebody such as myself embodies in the flesh as well as can feel from personal experiences that also been through. Therefore yes I know more then you.

          • Kris Kompute

            Straight Outta Compton did get nominated for best screenplay, but your point is great.

          • marty mcfly

            Ok cool. My point is this, people always wanna be quick to say I’m the one hating white people but as long as respect is given it will also be returned. Just like I said with Macklemore, Mac Miller, Em, Evidence, Alchemist, Slug from Atmosphere etc… All of these white rappers are welcomed in Hip Hop all day imo. Why? because they have a respect for the “culture”. Thats all I’m saying. When I turn it around and talk about how black people were treated for generations in the music and entertainment business controlled by white people and how they had to fight for acceptance and their right to be artists and take credit for their own musical styles. This isn’t hate talk, this is just the truth. Up until the era of Michael Jackson, as a black artist you were lucky if you could get a record out, have it heard on radio or perform in a white town and make it out the parking lot without getting attacked and thats even though deep down those white people loved the music but they couldn’t get past the skin color. So now in today you got Hip Hop culture? You damn right I think black people should take ownership of it and protect it against anybody white coming in here with the wrong intentions. Everybody participating in Hip Hop is gonna have to respect this culture or they should be confronted. Period

          • Kris Kompute

            I completely agree.

          • Holy ghost

            M black bro and i say you’re talkin trash.hypocrite!

          • Carl Vegas

            Mcfly- that was meant for guest. I respect your opinion and the depth you add to the subject matter. Respect my dude. Somethings ai disagree on but will not argue you on it but I totally respect your knowledge.

          • marty mcfly

            Word. Black people are the only ones expected to accept all forms of disrespect, racism and hatred and then turn the other cheek and forgive. Fuck all that. Hip Hop is our fucking culture and any white people in it should be confronted and asked about their intentions. Anybody not saying the right shit should get their fucking head cracked. I don’t give a fuck.

          • White Guy

            ‘In Country music? White people wanna know why the fuck you there if you black and you show up with a guitar.”

            My turn! I am white and no the f we don’t! Don’t speak for us! You don’t know what it’s like to be white and I don’t know what it’s like to be black. See where this is going? It’s okay for you to pass judgement on a race that you’re not? Not a chance buddy you’re not white! Just like I can’t speak for you. That’s is hypocrisy 101. Now I’m sure that you’ll have some sort of justification as to why it’s okay because that’s what you do. You have it in your head that you’re kicking knowledge by belittling people? Not I. I’m just as educated and happen to love hip hop. You’re no smarter than any of us.

          • marty mcfly

            Well there’s OVERWHELMING evidence that shows a level of racism coming from white people in america that backs up what I’m saying. I can pass judgment on white people in terms of racism because the evidence is at a level you’ll NEVER be able to deny. I’m not belittling anybody. The fact the white people will question and suspect anybody thats not white coming into anything they consider to be their culture or art form can be backed up in multiple areas of america.

          • marty mcfly

            Anybody black trying to come up in Country music is damn sure gonna be confronted along the way by white people asking wtf he think he doing in they culture. FACTS

          • Carl Vegas

            Furthermore, go listen to the Rap Radar uncle murder podcast. All I took from that was murder eager and pathetically interested in riding future’s wave. You will never find a Cudi, Wale or a Jcole trying to ride waves. Ef that..make your own wave or if your shit don’t resonate, cater to the 50k fans that do mess with you!

    • diggz

      damn you got your own culture now?

      Whelp, if you say so? There goes your album sales!

  • Kris Kompute

    Recording on analog. Dope. Excited to see what they did.

  • Hussle

    Aint even gon lie…this 2mins video got me intrigued

  • diggz

    holy shiiiiiit!! They needed to do something like this. The last CD they had took 10 years to make and was ridiculously good. Looks like it’s going to have that same sound. I wish they didn’t release the same love song as a single cause people don’t realize how talented these guys are. Can’t wait for this one, only a month a way.

    • Winston Wolfe

      Not really a fan of them as a collective but Ryan is nice with it behind the boards. The production is usually on point

  • album of the year

  • Sonic

    Ryan Lewis and Macklemore are gay?

    • Jay Zenith

      This a question? And why are you so concerned with everybody being gay (i.e. Puffy) when you support an ambiguously gay mixtape rapper? Doesn’t add up?

      • Sonic

        I would never support gay people, as I believe they are abomination.

        • Jay Zenith

          You’re obviously trolling. Forget that I asked.

          • Sonic

            Also they are white, Hobbit.

          • Jay Zenith

            Cool story!

          • Sonic

            White people are not allowed to listen to rap and enjoy hip hop culture.

          • Jay Zenith

            Thanks for the heads up! Duly noted.

  • I’m just not with the whole Elvis thing… I’m good… I don’t like the music or the message and I don’t like this group capitalizing off hip hop culture…

    • THE REAL mac DIESEL

      …………THIS!!!!

      DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

    • Jay Zenith

      Funny thing is that white people aren’t up in arms about Kid Cudi making shitty alternative rock albums. Curious to see what’s your thoughts on that?

      • SURFACE

        Shitty is being kind, I gave it an honest listen, he’s in a class by himself. It was awful, all over the place. No concept, no direction, and definitely not rock.

      • Some are. Just like people are mad about Macklemore copying black artists, there are plenty of us mad at Cudi for copying white artists (Nirvana). But it’s not a race thing. If Cudi made a great alt rock album I would definitely enjoy that. But he didn’t. He made a trashy album that is a disrespectfully dumb take on grunge. So that’s why we’re mad.

    • Kris Kompute

      What’s wrong with the message?

  • Hmmm…curious about how this album will sound & I’m not even a Mack fan.

  • Pete

    It’s funny. If you don’t like someone, you’re a hater. If you’re a fan, you’re delusional. I love Rap Radar’s comment section.

    • Got Em!

      Really hate this comment! But what do I know? I’m delusional.

    • radio raheem

      How about we wait till it drops then comment… Its too many meteorologists also in the rap radar comment section… lmao….. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis never made it on my iphone but im interested to see what the Hip Hop GODS Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, DJ Premier and the teacher teacher bronx bomber, Prince of Hip Hop KRS One preaches on the track… this should be played by many of their fans and they will get to hear these pioneers which is energy passing on to many ears…. its just something naturally spiritual about listening to vibrations and voices maybe 99% of the world dont understand LMFAOO… but soon they will.. I have hope…. I respected these 2 for bringing out the gang at the vmas.. so now lets see where this goes again…. its also funny how our own people dont promote them like how these 2 does… Respect when its do.. no hate on this side… PEACE

  • My Apple Music subscription gonna be put to good use in Feb.

  • deezfault

    mark my words iggy azaleas new album will be harder than this..

  • these guys make incredible records. hope they have a few hit singles and make history once again. #dope

    • Chronic

      Doubt it. They already released the big single in downtown and it was pretty much a flop. And it seems like white privilege was him trying to make another “I thought that I was gay” type song.

      • yeah, it was wack. at least it charted though. and i’m just trying to bump new tracks, aint worried about all that Race shit. i could give a fuck less what color a motherfucka is.

        • Chronic

          Yea I liked the “thrift shop” song for the beat, and that “hold us” song was good from the last album. So he might have or 2 good songs again. Overall I don’t get the hype with him though

          • it’s all about those singles fam. you seen the RIAA start awarding artists with Platinum ALBUM plaques based mostly on “single streams”.
            i cant say i have heard many albums in the past 2 years that i love most, if not, every track.
            thats why a lot of the younger kids like post malone. he doesnt have any solid bodies of work but his 2 singles “white iverson” and “too young” put and kept his ass on the map. the mainstream loves this guy. i’m rooting for him, honestly.
            the thing about Mac & Ryan is no one can discredit them because they’ve had some of the highest selling singles of the past IDK-how-long.
            thats what i look forward to, from these guys at least, are those 2 – 3 songs i can have on my playlist on constant rotation.

  • dmc

    Finally some hype

    3+ years is a long break between albums! let’s hope the fans stuck around.

    This album will definitely go triple platinum…

Look, the basis of generalization cannot be tarnished within the constitutional infestation which we call our body of government. Hail the forgotten!!!
