over at Harper’s blogÂ and I think,Â how vitriolic. YetÂ it is a delightÂ to every now and again read such a biting, negative review. I did wonder though – how did this Louis Logic character get to where he is if he sucks so hard? So, I did some research and what I’m reading doesn’t sound too bad – the guy seems somewhat well-respected so maybe he was having an off night or something. I don’t really mind that an MCÂ has a self-absorbed myspace (it is called “myspace” after all).
I have no respect for an MC who agrees to an interview, name-checks Newcleus as an influence and then allows the reporter to misspell the group’s name “Nucleus”:
T.JONES: “What song made you fall in love with hip-hop?”
LOUIS LOGIC: “The first record that I ever got where I loved the song so much, I actually went out and bought the record was U.T.F.O.’s ‘Roxanne Roxanne’. Also, Nucleus…”Â
Fuck that, Louis Logic.
