Super Slimey, super early
There’s magic created from an original idea, the concept, it sparks a sense of joy that can not be recaptured ever again, unless comparatively put next to another model. I, myself tend to think that both models, no matter what it is we speak of, lose value and meaning in that moment of compare and contrast. For when we do compare and contrast, we deviate from what we originally think, so it seems. I breathe no air that doesn’t say that’s wrong to do, but for the sake of our enjoyment when it comes to music, there needs to be some grounds. There needs to be some time. It’s okay to use the oven and not the microwave.
Now, before we begin, allow me to state this: I’ll listen to Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” happily and shadow the song with J Cole’s “03′ Adolescence.” From that statement, I do my best to declare myself unbiased.
I love HotNewHipHop and Complex but at times, it feels like there’s a need to fish for content from a sea full of wonder. No more than 4 days ago, we received Future and Young Thug’s body of work, Super Slimey. Reminder: no less than 4 days ago. Watch The Throne by Jay-Z and Kanye West was released six years ago while What A Time To Be Alive by Future and Drake was released two years ago. Both projects have had time to breathe, stretch and shake their way through clubs, car speakers, households, televisions, radios and through the mind process of all who digested these body’s of work. To compare these body’s is not in good taste, yet.
“So, after living with it over the weekend, do you feel like Super Slimey is a superior project to What A Time To Be Alive? Or is it still too soon to tell?,” HNHH writer Mitchel Findlay wrote. Pointing out factors to why the projects were difficult to compare, perhaps a better question, later down the line, would be ‘did Future perform better on Super Slimey or WATTBA?’
