The 33 Project

Hi hi. Last weekend was so fun. Still in recovery mode and in need of sleep!

Anyway, let’s get into the recs for this week…

1/ A rap beef explained.

Drake’s songwriting is often propelled by a sweeping sense of grievance and an obsession with the past and his haters (he’s not that different from Taylor Swift after all!). However, his constant feelings of victimhood within his relationships with women — and the subsequent, more blatant misogyny that’s grown out of that — has begun to wear on critics and parts of his female fanbase. It’s an observation that Lamar has sharply utilized in his diss tracks over the weekend.

2/ This is a bummer. Support the Hudson River and keeping it healthy, here.

3/ Want to see this! Love Saoirse Ronan, think she’s beyond talented and this looks like an excellent addition to her oeuvre of work.

That’s all for this week. We also just finished Baby Reindeer and I think I need to hide in a hole now. Have a great Thursday.
