I’m not trying to be funny, i really don’t know: does Irv actually make beats?
Also, he looks silly running around with the last name Gotti. Imagine him introducing himself to some Italians or worse, actual mobsters. I had an employee once from the Czech Republic. He told me a story about how he came over here and was wearing a shirt that said “original gangsta” on it. He really didn’t get the connection between the music videos he saw on TV and real life. He wore it downtown as was getting clowned and checked by total random strangers and actual gangsters. He said he went home and threw it away. My homeboy turned to him and said, “Man, I’m black. And I would never even think about wearing that.”
Dude learns a lot that day, but it makes me wonder about how many people worldwide hear the thuggin in the music and see these images on TV and think that this is what black people are all about.
When people like Amy Winehouse wild out,
I don’t even mind. You might have to be a little touched to put out brilliance like that. If you put out one classic, truly classic album like that, we’re cool.
being musically brilliant and being normal at the same time are not easy that’s why Sade takes such long breaks, I think

I mean, there are alot of talented people that chose not to smoke crack or kill themselves.
true, but there seems to be a high rate of deeply troubled minds and spirits among the creatively brilliant. Many die an early death, but some seem to lose their mind. So when people wanna walk naked through a park in Dallas, or wear football shoulder pads with a genie headwrap and a kilt, or have a pet chimpanzee and build a themepark in their backyard, I just kanye shrug.
This is why I like Relapse so much.. Em uses these flows to perfection.. I mean really you hate this? this song warning drop the world and forever are this flow.. and your sick of it.. not only 5 dope verses.. but only 5 songs.. maybe a whole cd of it.. and thne listen to it 10-20 times like all other em albums.. and i could see it getting old.. but not until after that
