Lese Majesty: best of 2015

A well-written retelling of his experience of the LP by Brent Ables for Coke Machine Glow. A lot of people weren't ready for LM and claimed it wasn't as good as Black Up. I don't understand that- it was a much more expansive, cohesive, greater album. But some publications, like Newsweek, The Guardian, Rap Reviews, and the CMJ could could handle it. Listening to Ish's new music for the first time is an experience somewhat akin to reading a Borges story for the first time... too strong for many. Repeated doses however do clear up any remaining symptoms of confusion.
