You love it? You hate it? Pitchfork says it is a blatant publicity stunt (but hey, they can’t spell “blatant” so I don’t know if I trust them), Rolling Stone calls Adams a freestyle rap prodigy, and Stereogum just wants Ryan to come back and leave some rambling comments on their site.
Check out the new rap that’s streaming on the recently redone Tron-tastic Ryan-Adams.com. I absolutely enjoyed the laugh it gave me, and think it shows a brilliant sense of self-effacing humor. Come on people, lighten up!
Look Who Got A Website – MC Ryan McFresh (aka Ryan Adams)
Ryan recently wrote on a fan message board about his time in the studio & his recently achieved sobriety, and ends with this note:
“i also am stoked that at least one or two songs a record have some rap.
i am really bad at rap.
Update 9/29: Rap II
Drunk Santa – Funky Ryan DeeLyte
(oh, and he rapped in Manchester last night. Live. At least he knows he’s bad at it!)
