    What I hate above all is that 'skrrt!' noise that they and other rappers do now.

    I didn't mind it the first time but then they did it fifty million times.

    It's a tic noise, and Migos at times seem to me to comprise almost nothing but tics.

    Maybe after all its the endless ad-libs.

    Maybe Barty has actually put his finger on exactly what I find so batshit irritating about them?

    The atomisation. As if you're watching TV and some ADHD addled youth is endlessly flicking between channels.

    i know little about Migos - but I used to hate what I heard and be absolutely mystified at the appeal. then heard 'Bad and Boujee' really loud in the gym, of all places, and it finally made sense. Sounded like a finely tuned machine, an environment more than it's music.

    on the cognitive biases, i would imagine that dissensus is much less susceptible to the obscurity bias than most places

    (8) Corden bias - is not technically possible that anyone future can have done carpool karaoke with James Corden

    i thought this was something to do with the devolved political structure of Switzerland!

    it sounds right, though, as a musical term - like i feel like i understand it (without really understanding it)

    I think this is a nice idea corpsey but actually I think you just don't like their voices

    The way they rap:

    walk it
    like you
    talk it

    Chopped into three units.

    Not 'walk it like you talk it'.

    blimmin hell you're demanding aren't you, just after my idiot dad went to court again, the cunt.

    The staccato 1-2-1-2 beat is closer to drum and bass than it is jungle. in this sense Versachi has much more rhythmic tics and accentuations going on compared to walk it talk it which, if i may be so bold, sounds like what 98 dnb was to 93 jungle.

    The instrumentals from the earlier migos era also have all kinds of weird drop outs and rawer production values that both cultures don't have, which I thought were underwhelming. I also find the bass hits harder on earlier Migos. Yes, it's certainly less widescreen, but I can't see how making a bassline more widescreen qualifies as a seismic innovation when the ratchet crew are doing that anyway with much more successful results.

    And I might add this is highly annoying to me

    But it's also very catchy

    this is a shit comparison because "Walk It Talk it" is the worst thing Migos did in the whole Culture / Culture II / Control the Streets era, it's a boring reversion to 'Versace' type doggerel

    compare the No Label II tune with "T Shirt" or "Slippery" - or "Bosses Don't Speak" - or "MotorSport" "Top Down on Da NAWF" "Made Men" "Movin Too Fast"

    i think the latter type of tune is way more interesting sonically and in terms of the subjectivity it presents

    the first era Migos is energetic and muscular, they are working hard, on the make... fine as far as it goes, onventional in terms of a hip hop psychology (in that sense it's a bit like "Move That Dope" for Future, excitingly feral, but not as interesting as the more woozy stuff later where he feels like he's only half there)

    the Culture/Culture II era, they have nothing to prove, they've won, they are basking - melting into liquid glowing pools of jouissance

    there is an ecstatic, oozy quality - ethereal and (at odds with the lyrics) eerily unmanly at times, lacking in thrust and drive

    all of what Barty says but particularly those Martian murmurs from the crypt - I've never heard anyone do that before, the three-tier vocals: lead rap, ad libs, and in the deep background the moaning droning wordless sighs and flutters and shivers and shudders

    they (but especially Quavo) seem lost in an auto-erotic swirl, draped in a bliss seems to seep out of their bodies as a mist of Auto-Tuned droplets

    yeah, hip hop for people don't want to get down with the militant psychology required from the genre. at least tod edwards had an extreme feminin joy. you could literally feel like you wanted to be a woman.
