Burgertime (Droppin’ Science)

In many ways, Burgertime---by the Teenburger trio of Ontario rapper Timbuktu and Halifax’s Ghettosocks and DJ Jorun Bombay---is the aural, moral opposite of Watch the Throne, the Kanye and Jay-Z collaboration. Watch the Throne is meticulous luxury rap over airlessly handpicked samples; Burgertime is three friends hanging out and delivering freewheeling wordplay about arriving late for class and hiding boners behind binders. Ghettosocks and Timbuktu show bright chemistry over sharp boom-bap production. The album drags at times, its 20 tracks plumped up by some off-message remixes of old material, but unlike a fast-food burger, you can smell how fresh Burgertime is.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
