Tha God Fahim

Tobe Nwigwe has great posture. Nwigwe is a big man and an imposing one — 6’2″, 240, used to play linebacker at the University Of North Texas. He might have made the NFL if not for a career-ending injury. In his videos, you can see just how big Nwigwe is; he never stoops or slouches or shrinks. Instead, he holds himself with a stillness that comes off elegant, almost delicate. When he’s rapping, Nwigwe usually stares straight into the camera’s eye — barely moving his body, rarely changing his expression. When he dances — something he does pretty often — he moves with a lithe grace. Most of the time, everyone onscreen moves just like him.

Right now, the Delaware rappers RU$H and Jay Nice have been on a crazy run. Both rappers work in the Roc Marciano mold — elaborate and impeccably worded good-life boasts, delivered in rugged monotones over lush and psychedelic beats. A few months ago, RU$H and Jay Nice released Fly Art, an EP that featured collaborations…

“Oh, no! No! Please, God, help me!” That’s Ozzy Osbourne howling on Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath,” from the album Black Sabbath. “Black Sabbath” is the first song from Sabbath’s 1970 debut album, which means it’s a big-bang moment for the entire existence of metal. On that song, Osbourne screams about being terrorized by a “big…

When rappers pile up a little bit of money, they move to California. It’s a smart thing to do. If you’ve got yourself and your family installed in a rented Calabasas McMansion, then you’ve effectively removed yourself from all the people back home who might want something from you. For someone like Polo G or…

The videos never stop. They’re a constant stream, a deluge. As I’m writing this, the last one was three days ago. Cinematically, that video is nothing much. The imagery is static, even boring. It’s NBA YoungBoy, riding a shopping cart through a supermarket, throwing boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch at the camera. It’s NBA YoungBoy,…

Silverchair was where I jumped off. I just couldn’t do it anymore. When that band showed up, the entire idea of alternative rock, and of grunge in particular, just started to seem irredeemably corny. Less than a year after Kurt Cobain’s death, alt-rock radio was suddenly in love with this little Australian kid — 15…
