Fed up with living in WASP-city, Duke gleefully announces stepping down a rung on society’s ladder as he anticipates his imminent return to the hood.
In which Aaron breathes a sigh of relief and learns about the wrath of old heads while bumping UGK.
A large swath of Aaron’s Back To The Classics series did not sit well with him, and his irreverent takedowns of albums revered by many of us old heads (to be fair, we did ask…
Dukes reminisces on the dues he had to pay, plowing through ‘thank you’ lists of albums for clues, and lambasts the streaming media generation as too lazy to support their local record store and too pussy to download illegally.
While consuming copious amounts of Polish pilsner beer, Dukes concluded that the phrase “You just hatin’” will lead to the downfall of society. There’s still time to stop it though, if you don’t whine like a lil’ bitch.
After years of cropped thuggery, Dukes decides he needs a decent haircut to move on up like Curtis. The struggle to find one where he doesn’t have to hear about Justin Bieber, ovarian cancer, or the life of a teen mom is a serious one.
Having finally found a new place to live, Dukes finds out he can no longer fall asleep without the ambient noise of freight trains, drug deals and prostitution.
When Aaron got sick of the inecessant braggadocio of the ‘golden era’, he wondered whether the old heads weren’t letting nostalgia cloud their judgement. We probably do, but there certainly was something different about that age.
In this episode, Dukes calls for the public execution of people who use the term ‘instant classic’. There should at least be a ten year moratorium. And the five underrated gems he offers have had plenty gestation time.
Dukes takes a trip down memory lane that’s all heartbreaks and 808s. Without the auto tune of course, what kind of asshole do you think he is?
