he literally said Death Grips and Kendrick Lamar where huge inspirations for his last album. Discuss, /mu/tants.
>>
hopefully they're next
>>
>>61667497

No he didn't, he talked about listening to them with Tony Visconti and Donny McCaslin in the studio.
>>
>>61667497
He said Boards of Canada were a huge inspiration and that he's listened to Death Grips and Kendrick Lamar.
>>
alblum was fycjubg great

>>61667497
yeah because they gave him cancer

haha that's actually pretty clever.

someone told me bowie is sampled on a death grips song is this true
>>

>a /mu/ user making a cancer joke

>>61667933
thank you

>>61667952
they sample an alternate version of The Supermen at the beginning of Culture Shock
>>
>>61667952
Death Grips' discography is one long sample of this

Blackstar really isn't that good of an album, but now its going to be hailed as a classic because of all of this
>>
>>61668216
Not even close.
>>
>>61667497
Bowie was /mu/ before /mu/ was a thing. Granted, he was also a total alpha. We should all aspire to live as Bowie did (though I doubt most of us would make it past the coke phase and live to 69).
>>
>>61668996
m-m-m-maximum denial
>>
>>61668996
Do you really think a popular group wouldn't be inspired by one of the most influental musical acts of past century? I'm a huge dg fan and don't even like bowie that much but come on. It's like if they shoved you pictures of a shovel and a bulldozer. Of course they are not even close, but you really can't see it?
>>
>>61667497
he literally said hitler was a good guy
>>
>>61667563
shut the fuck up
>>
>>61669248
Well he wasn't wrong
>>
>>61667497

Anything he's said or done in the last 18 months can be attributed to the fantastic drugs he was most certainly on.

For good or bad.
>>
>>61668317
It was already getting great reviews before this
>>
>>61668317
no shit faggot David fucking Bowie literally made a concept album about dying
>>
Blackstar definitely had some TPAB influence

Even "where the fuck did Monday go" sounds like a Kendrick line
>>
>>61669248
just a first rock star. Are rock stars good by any measure?
>>
So are any of you plebs capable of actually identifying the Death Grips/Kendrick influence, or are you just going to wank each other off all day?
>>
Just listened to the album and damn, did I not expect that Kendrick and DG influence.
>>
>>61669520
Are you living in the world of 0 and 1 or what?
He listened to them, therefore his future works are influenced by them. Just like dg is influenced by bowie because I bet my balls those guys listened to a shitload of bowie, they're that type of people.
>>
>>61669671
What the fuck are you on about?
>>
>>61668317
>album comes out
>"oh this is weird bowie, singing about some some abstracted dark themes"

>bowie dies 3 days later, and it is revealed that he had been battling cancer for over a year and a half
>"holy shit, the entire album is about his impending death, mind = blown"

One of the very first things that they teach you in art/music appreciation is the importance of context in art, so yes his death absolutely changes the album.
>>
>>61669026
so he was an alpha-meme? wew lad, much achievement

prolly why the meme magic werkd
>>
>>61669822
Doesn't change the fact that the instrumentation is nothing to phone home about. the new context raises this album from a 6/10 to a 6.5 or 7 at best.
>>
>>61667497
>>61667580
Literally source where for any of this???

Rock stars are bad, Hitler was a very bad man who abused lots of drugs and went out with his country and people wrecked around him.

It's just a meme perpetuated by meme rap plebs.

For real? Boards was an inspiration? I've gotta listen to this album.
>>
>>61670062
Shit taste.
>>
>>61669026
He took being weird as fuck and instead of becoming a recluse outcast with it, he fucking owned it and became music's biggest alpha

Nobody knows that.

what does this even mean?

Ah, Alpha and Omega! That's awesome. Thanks.
>>
>>61667497
It seems like the cancer really fucked with his mind if he willingly considered DG and KL as influences.
>>
>>61667618
I was about to post this... fuck sniggers

You must be miserable.

You're a fool. Keep swimming up stream faggot we're noticing you.

>>61673927
God, go back to fucking reddit. I said this album is 6.5 or 7, which is above average. Anyone giving this more than that is a fucking pleb.

Are you retarded? Did you listen to the album at all?

>>61675979
Nice meme. Tell me why it deserves more or go back to your echo chamber on reddit.
>>
>>61676138
The fact that you just assume that I like reddit and use that as an insult makes you 10x more of a tool
>>
>>61676138
I haven't. There's no "Somewhere" on the track list, is it with a different title?
>>
>>61676236
>assumes I wear a hat and calls me a tool for assuming that you use an echochamber website when you show that you can't handle other's opinions
Yeah that's it, keep dodging the topic you pleb.

this fucking guy

>i'm gonna keep dodging the topic and use more ad hominen attacks
Step up your game you retarded pleb. This is your last (You). In fact, no, you've had enough.
>>
>>61667497
Do you think either one of them (BoC, DG, Kendrick) would release a song dedicated to Ziggy?
>>
>>61676373
>>>>>>>>>>>>>being this new
>>
>>61676379
BoC are the only ones out of three capable of a worthwhile tribute, and no, they probably won't. They probably don't give much of a shit about Bowie and they don't seem like the kinds of guys to sell bullshit to people for the sake of fame.

Kendrick won't, but he might name drop him somewhere.

DG are magicians of hype and memes so they probably will.
>>
>>61676457
BoC do give a shit, check their twitter
>>
>>61676313
that is the most fedora tipping reply i could have imagined

don't forget to upvote
>>
>>61676457
I agree they won't do that for profit/fame especially BoC and Death Grips. But I wish they would, I rather see them subtlety leak it in months or a year after his death.
>>
>>61676373
>ad hominen
>hominen
>>
>>61667497
I think the blacks that pollute the music industry today were the inspiration for his last album. Hence the name 'Blackstar'.

Send them back to Africa I say.
>>
>>61677107
>DUDE LE NIGGERS LMAO

Send you back 9gag I'd say
>>
>tfw Bowie didn't get a chance to finish the album off completely due to his health and dropped the album early :'(
