I can’t lie: my Spotify listening of late has been all Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, all the time. Their hip hop album The Heist is the best I’ve heard all year and that’s saying something because it was a good year for music. And it doesn’t hurt that Macklemore — aka Ben Haggerty — is easy on the eyes, too. I daresay he looks like a more blonde, masculine version of The Gos. Keep reading »
Whether you’ve got 99 problems or you’re a motherfuckin’ monster, chances are you probably like coloring books. (Everyone likes coloring books.) And this quirky rap coloring book will keep you busy coloring in Jay-Z and connecting the dots on Tupac. Too bad Nicki Minaj is excluded, because you totally could have used all the crayons in your box coloring on her crazy hair. [ANIMAL New York]
We just found out about Awkwafina and now we’re kind of in love. The tiny rapper created the track “My V@g,” in which she compares her vagina to a “chrome Range Rover / your vag / hatchback ’81 Toyota.” Yeah, it’s that good. [The Hairpin]

You guys, there’s a rap about “Downton Abbey”! Adam WarRock, whoever you are, wherever you are, I love you. [NYMag.com via AdamWarRock.com]
Well, well, holy nerds, what do we have here? It appears that a bunch of bros have discovered an untapped niche — the plaid shirt-wearing demo. And here, they rap all about their love for the ubiquitous pattern. I’ll just be over here in the corner eating a P’Zone and crying on the inside. [YouTube]
What part of this amazing “Pizza Party” rap from Fly Guys do I not love? Trick question: I love all of it. ALL OF IT. Please, why doesn’t every rap song reference Papa John’s crack butter sauce? “I got pies on pies on pies. Pies for days,” say the Fly Guys. Better believe it. [Buzzfeed]
