As you may know, I only listen to rap by white guys (as a matter of circumstance, not of principle!), so of course I've heard the new album by The Streets (a.k.a. Mike Skinner from the U.K.), Everything Is Borrowed. It's more contemplative than his previous albums, riffing on matters of the soul and of the cosmos, in Skinner's trademark thick English Accent. My favorite track as of today is "Heaven for the Weather":
And I just read that Eminem released a memoir, to which I say, "Isn't that what every single one of his albums have essentially been?" What's left to reveal?
