    I believe it brings bad kharma


    This. On some real shit, how you gonna get aggie over being introduced to the guy who use to bang your chick out? What’s the logic in that? That’s temperamental bitch mentality shit. I mean if he’s still smashing, then that’s one thing, but otherwise. . . . Cats need to get their self esteem and confidence up, buy some looser fitting jeans or something.

    i nod at the nigga, say whatup on some cordial shit and keep it moving. you may have misunderstood me, my whole point was to say that i’m not about to actually try and build with the dude or let on to the possibility that we could become friends also. i’ve got enough friends as is. niggas understand

    ah yeah i did misunderstand…

    this i can agree with…

    DX: It seems like you kind of harbor some resentment towards aging rappers.
    Kool Keith: What, Asians?

    DX: Aging.
    Kool Keith: Naw I feel great, it’s no resentment. People younger than me look older than me. It’s no problem with me. We just take care of ourselves. People see us and they be like “Oh shit, I can’t believe you niggas look like this.” They expect to see us looking like somebody else. Like some old baseball players. They want us to look like Mickey Mantle or Whitey Ford, with gray hair. I don’t know. I think people are just consistently jealous of us. Everybody around us is deteriorating. They get old, fat, get potbellys. A lot of successful motherfuckers are ugly. We live in a world of hate and jealousy. People don’t like you looking good. A girl’ll marry a dude with AIDS just to avoid a good looking guy. [Laughs]

    DX: What do you mean by that?
    Kool Keith: They’ll marry a guy with AIDS because they don’t care. It’s the morals of the world. That’s why the babies are ugly. All the kids are genetically fucked up right now because of the matchmaking. You look at Ebony and Jet, all these magazines, all the people getting married are old looking and ugly. You know, I’m deep. My genetic cultures is deep also. It’s around the world. Women trade eggs and sperm with the most ugliest motherfuckers and the ugliest girls sleep with the ugliest guys and that produces an ugly baby. Every baby ain’t pretty in a stroller, that’s the truth. You look in the strollers and some of the kids are ugly. Hey, I got no animosity towards children, but that’s the way the world is going.

    DX: So you think only attractive people should be breeding?
    Kool Keith: People should mate correctly. Like back in the day when people mated, it goes with the Billy Dee Williams syndrome. Back in the days, in your mothers days and your grandfather’s time, people had a choice to pick people. You’d see your grandfather’s pictures and he didn’t look ugly. He looked like a nice looking guy. People now are going with mutants. Everybody’s dating anybody. They don’t give a fuck who they sleep with. Girls’ll lay with anybody with no condoms on. They’ll sleep with a guy with two heads, then get a retarded baby. So that’s why the world’s genetically fucked up, with people that’s Mongolian looking. Everybody looks weird because everybody feels insecure. A fine girl don’t want to match up with a nice looking dude. A nice looking dude don’t want to match up with a nice looking girl. The world don’t want to talk, society’s socialism is down.

    So you got ugly people. People been hurt by pretty people. People feel being ugly is safe. Ugly is evil, ugly is safe. People feel that they might hate people. That’s why they got that old syndrome. People want to cut your face. People want to scratch you. People want to mess you up, make you look ugly. People want to punch you in the face, give you a black eye, make you ugly. [Laughs] Fuck ‘em. I’m not ugly. You got hot rappers out here that look like Mick Jagger. They ain’t got the composure and shit, a lot of people can’t hold they pigmentation. It’s few people that maintain themselves. They out there on drugs. You got a lot of people out there, their genetics are fucked up. You got a high rate of lesbianism, women don’t like certain men no more. So when they do get a man they get with an ugly man. Some people are just satisfied to get married. We live in a chemical, fucked up world. Everything is chemically imbalanced. So every generation is uglier. You ever notice that? Ain’t too many pretty people being born. [Laughs]

    DX: So in a few generations we’re just gonna be an ugly, ugly race?
    Kool Keith: Oh man, we’re gonna have fucking gorillas on earth. We’re gonna have dinosaurs walking around. That’s how fucking deep I am. Fuck rap. Humans gonna turn into dinosaurs. Ugly people gonna breed with ugly people and jealousy and hate and you’re gonna see a lot of ugly motherfuckers walking around mad, evil, ready to try to hurt you. That’s why I gotta be on defense. I gotta walk around with my fuckin’ biochemical suit on.

  8. Yasser Pair-a-gats Says:

    DX: Anything else you want to address?
    Kool Keith: Not really, just peace and love to the earth and the land and let’s see what the vibes are out there with people and shit. And everybody be careful of who you’re mating with. Look in his family, do a genetic research on his family. See if he have a Lurch in his family. Look and see if he has an Uncle Fester or something. Everybody’s living like The Munsters. Frankenstein and little Eddie Munster. That’s what the average family looks like right now. It’s fucked up but it’s real. You gotta watch the fuck out because you could have the Munster family.

    Nah my homeboy met her in ATL in the stu like a year before she blew up. She’s mad down to earth. But her beauty is legit. Me and this nigga spent a lot of time in ATL and we’ve been on some missions down there and ATL has madddd bad bitches….but he said Keri was so bad, the nigga was trippin over words and shit. Comin across shorties that fine is rare.
