Really Late Christmas Post Edition: 'Tis the season. As every year draws to a close, we look back and reflect at the events leading up to this moment. At any given time, we are an accumulation of our experiences and memories. Christmas time is arguably the most beautiful time of the year; part nostalgia and part looking ahead upon the year and life ahead, all with a background of softly falling snow and fireplaces, etc etc. Somewhat frequent collaborators Danny Brown, Heems, and Despot hop on to this beautiful tune by Vampire Weekend to talk about their past, mainly their ex-es. The music playfully yells CHRISTMAS while the 3 dudes all do their thing. Despot once again proves that he can take most MCs today but has yet to produce a cohesive body of work, aside from a few amazing guest verses. Happy New Year, y'all.
