9/26/16: Audiopush, The Weeknd, Shabaka Hutchings, Passenger

@@@ Audiopush: 90951 (Good Vibe Tribe, 2016). Some West Coast ratchet, whatever that is. I know Miley Cyrus was deep into marketing herself as ratchet, but she’s a low self esteem victim of Walt the Mouse so it’s unclear what ratchet may be. 467 more words
