A quick dispatch from the front lines of coke-rap cheerleading

Sorry to take attention away from Drischord's great Top 10, but I discovered something that I needed to share from Pitchfork's review of the new Clipse mixtape, Road to Till the Casket Drops. Here is a quote from none other than the Village Voice's former coke-rap promoter extraordinaire, Tom "Status Ain't Hood" Breihan:

"And maybe by the time they release their next album (next year, lord willin'), Clipse should look beyond the corner and make a few tracks that don't revolve around white powder."

Consider this the canary in the coal mine! The whirlygig of minstrel shows turns onward! The age of Pitchfork's worship of the crack kings is drawing to a close. I can't wait to see what trends they'll be dictating next...
