The production is actually really nice.
DOOM's rapping is sub-par on this. Not only in his lack of flow but his lyrics are just lazy.

In hip-hop, the production = beat. That's why the "beatmakers" are referred to as "producers". The beat is weird but it's well-done and I guess it lacks a groove but it's interesting in a future garage/Gonjasufi kind of way.

I agree with you, though. I think he's wrong actually. The producer in hip-hop is called that because
he produces the beats, but there's no reason you can't refer to the production without referencing the
actual beats.

Why tease us with the new Madvillain tracks and go off on another tangent like this? This was pretty whack, nothing I wanna go back to.

like how am i supposed to say that i think the quality of the beats aesthetic is quite grand but the
beat itself is kinda meh if i cant use the word production without referring to the entire thing minus
vocals

yer not supposed to say that cause what's meh is yer ego finding problems or "mediocrity" in a song
instead of max appreciatin listenin

1:40 on is so fresh

Haha silentpotato, I wasn't saying they were inclusive, but you were saying ^^ this when I was referencing the production as in the beat, and you were referencing it in the aesthetics way. I was letting you know what I meant, silly goose.
