Published Oct 09, 2013While Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio has been spending his time off before the band's upcoming tour by working on his solo electronic project, frontman Ezra Koenig has apparently been pursuing another profession entirely, as he's just published a music critique of Drake's Nothing Was the Same for musician's talking music site The Talkhouse.
Known for its hilarious "zero rating" review by Lou Reed of Kanye West's Yeezus, Koenig is all positivity this time around, giving our boy Drizzy a complete "10 outta 10" for showing "an entirely different side of himself."
Although Koenig admits to not having listened to the album in full, he sticks by the pretty sound argument that "Obviously, it's good. You think a Canadian child actor would be this successful as a rapper if he wasn't good?"
But at times, it appears the indie-rock frontman may be taking the piss out the multimillionaire rapper, especially when he begins talking about making friends with a Danish singer named Hans, hanging out with Panda Bear, and his fictional ex-wife and son, who do not exist (hence fictional). He also writes "motherfucker" a few too many times.
But if you've been looking for something even more ridiculous than Drake's "Started from the Bottom" video, look no further.
