Intelligently, I know this is about The Chi, but the beauty of a song like this is that it could be anyone’s home. YAY PHILLY!

Like Button: Hell: The Sequel

17 June 2011

For me, The Slim Shady LP will always be one of those albums that no matter how much time has passed, I will remember exactly where I was when I fell in love with it and “Bad Meets Evil” was one of the best songs on there. Even before the beef, you could tell Em and Royce had the potential to blow up…and not in a good way. In a way, that love/hate relationship was so appealing because it was sexy and dangerous. In the end, they managed to produce something great!

I knew this collabo was happening, but I forgot about it until I stumbled upon the album on iTunes today; the cd came out Tuesday so I’m not all that late. I think “Above the Law” is my favorite, and it sure as hell describes my feelings over the past few weeks. Buying the album now!

NKOTBSB: You can’t crawl back into the culture-womb

This is the biggest load of BS I’ve ever read, haha. For someone who claims to be a “music writer” you seem to just not get it at all. And, just putting it out there because it’s absolutely true, NKOTB are very obviously riding the coat tails of BSB, who have been making current music and selling out tours since 2005. Yes, New Kids were the first…or the last depending on how you look at it, but they gave up. Backstreet is timeless. They are the last boy band rightfully standing and have very expertly navigated current trends to stay relevant after that 90s phenomenon died out and their hiatus in 2001. As a BSB fan since 1997, who has all their pre and post hiatus albums and has seen every single 21st century tour on more than one stop, I despise the fact that this collaboration is happening. It’s a gimmick and a joke and an excuse for pathetic “girls nights out” where people who only liked the hits of these groups come out and ruin it for the true fans. I’m pissed that I have to go to Wells Fargo to see my boys! I haven’t been in that arena for a Backstreet show since it was the First Union Center and the tour was for Black & Blue. It’s absolutely ridiculous. So yes, I agree with you that this tour is just a money maker, but not all of us are going for reasons of nostalgia and to act like foolish 10-year-olds; not all of us have been “duped.” Some of us are going to support a group of talented individuals who we’ve grown up with and respect and have been supporting for over a a decade.

And just for the record, I don’t give two shits about NKOTB and would give anything not to have to sit through them on Sunday :-)”

And yes, I realize that my last post was complaining and now I’m defending. But it’s just like with your hometown or your family–you can complain all you want about them but if someone else tries it, you’re all over that. GRR!
