Rediscovered my love for rap!

I dabble in rap now with Kendrick, J Cole, NAS, and a few others. I kind of thought the genre was dead for the most part, but Dissect has made me fall in love with rap music again. It helps understand what is a great art when there’s an abundance of information pulled into a four minute song! I can’t wait to burn through the new season!

Thorough interrogation of hip-hip classics

Dissect is a thoughtful consideration of hip-hop and R&B classic albums that is contextualized with regards to the era and personal lives of the artists involved. Given its focus and subject matter, it would be really great to see a season of Dissect that is finally dedicated to reviewing an album by Eminem, the most prolific hip-hop artist of all time. After eight seasons, an analysis of any one of Eminem’s three classic albums is long overdue.
