    Pretty awesome that Big Boi released a new song co-written by Dr. Luke.

    The EDM community won't let him go anywhere with this. When that came out, Datsik was ACTUALLY canceled. Got dropped from every event, no one wanted to book him, producers stayed away from him, the whole nine.

    Fuck that dude. He's a sexual predator and he absolutely DOES hide behind his religion no matter what he says.

    Someone actually sat down and typed out "I even supported you when you were accused of being with underage girls but this is a bridge too far" (paraphrasing) and... well. If that doesn't just say it all.

    I feel like whenever someone goes through some sort of thing that puts into question their moral fibre and come out the other end ultra religious kinda just speaks volumes about the type of person you are. like it's clear this guy is so attracted to Christianity because on a very high level it's like "Jesus accepts everyone and through Him you can be forgiven" or some shit, it's like he discovered the cheat code to getting over your fuck ups. why try and rectify your wrongs with your victims or invest in organizations that support the type of people you preyed on or even work with anyone in "the scene" to try and even fix a modicum of what you did when you can just go all out Christian??

    Like after all of this this guy basically learned that the only real forgiveness you need is with your god and not only is that the only authority worth appealing to but now that you're a servent of god everyone who isn't is Bad so you can *literally* have your cake and eat it too.

    It's ironic considering that he wasn't even able to admit to what he did until that billboard interview from last year, when a big part of Christian repentenance involves actually admitting to your faults. last I checked Jesus didn't care about long Facebook posts written by your lawyers.


    Shit like that when people go full Christian or full namaste one love bullshit drives me up the wall.

    It's performative, it's disingenuous, and it ironically flies in the face of everything Christ taught, relying on very specific interpretations of specific passages while removing all reason and context behind the words of his supposed savior. I might not believe in the religion, but I've read the book many times and this type of cop out is just pure hypocrisy and cowardice.

    But hey.

    I can't even decide whether it's more performative or straight up delusional. Like imagine being so afraid of holding yourself accountable (and not in a "poor me I'm the worst person alive" self pity kinda way) that you adopt a whole set of values and mythological tales to completely justify totally brushing your bad shit under the rug.

    Tbh it's probably a little column A, little column B. It's very difficult to say without being in someone's head if they actually BELIEVE what they're saying (which makes it delusional) or if it's cynical (performative). At the end of the day, it's the same impact regardless of intent, but both could certainly be true.

    He fucking laughs and smirks through the entire interview. The most terrifying scarecrow I've ever seen.

    Scott Hesisel making himself look like an absolute fool on twitter over this.

    Koji is a good, pure soul who practices what he preaches and works tirelessly in his community. I wish I was surprised that white men in the industry can’t handle their centrist faves being rightfully criticized.

    Bands change their names all the time and people get over it. What a disappointing response. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them but isn’t Frank Turner kind of problematic in general?
