EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite the nonsensical album title and unusual cover art, Marc Goone's latest release is actually surprisingly serious and thought-provoking. Though he's still pretty much unknown (he's worked with Mark Stud and dropped the mixtape Halfway to Nowhere), he shows definite potential here, with intricate rhyme structures and unexpectedly deep lyricism. On the music industry–bashing "25 Bills," he makes his anti-corporate stance clear; he refuses to "be a brand" and claims he'd rather "take a bullet in the head before I sign a deal." "Yung Walter White" tells the tale of his sub-legal entrepreneurialism, "Real Cracker" comically deals with his lack of melanin, and the aptly titled "This Is My $ong for Radio" is exactly that. Ultra-slick, pop-minded production dominates, with plenty of catchy synths and background singing. His wordplay runs the gamut from self-deprecating goofiness to smart satire to impressive storytelling.
