Nah this is what we gotta stop doing is pacifying and judging on a curve….in the 90’s cats was catching 12 bullets to the chest over getting that money up for a Tascam DA 88 to sell their music in the streets or make a demo.
Technology got these older cats scared they can’t keep up, Twitter, Facebook etc so they give the game to the youngins because they masters at Tumblr and all that other bullshit
…little niggas and bitches can’t even get in the club (let alone afford it) telling GROWN MEN and WOMEN what taste is.
There’s some good artists out there but there there’s some bullshit fucking up the game and people being TOO NICE on washed up rappers.
Go HARD or GO HOME.
…cats can’t even quote none of this new bullshit and BELIEVE IT.
Remember when Joaquin Phoenix went off the rails? Back in 2010 the actor-turned-rapper fooled David Letterman (and the world) into thinking that he’d fallen off the track and ditched an Academy Award nominating and Golden Globe winning career for a beard, drugs and a lazy flow.
Except, they were wrong. Phoenix wasn’t who he claimed to be. He was still the same old guy. He’d just been exercising a lesson in extended method acting for an albeit average new film. With Kanye’s recent plethora of very public breakdowns, could he be heading down the same route?
Back last year a school kid convinced the internet that Kanye’s new record was going to be called Black American Pyscho. Although the site that the kid set up was later found to be a hoax, the unconfirmed name runs parallel with Kanye’s current persona. Is Kanye crazy? Or does he want everyone to think that he is? He announced in Paris that we can expect new material within the next two months. Could Kanye be setting up a hyper-characterization for his new record? Let’s take a look…
For the recent run of shows he’s been bounding about in a strait-jacket. I get that artists have to advance and Kanye wasn’t going to be wearing a pink polo forever. But, the transition from Yeezy 2’s to a strait-jacket doesn’t happen without reasoning. Kanye is a perfectionist so you best be betting your bottom dollar that he’s got a load of reasoning bottled away for the return back to his indulgent, conceptual solo efforts.
JACKSON, Miss. — Whatever his prospects for winning the coming mayoral election in his hometown of Clarksdale, Miss., Marco McMillian was considered by many to be a man on the rise. So word spread fast when his SUV was involved in a wreck this week, and he was nowhere to be found.
The discovery of the openly gay candidate’s body near a Mississippi River levee Wednesday stunned residents of Clarksdale, a Blues mecca in the flatlands of the Mississippi Delta.
Authorities were investigating McMillian’s death as a homicide, and said a person of interest was in custody, but released few other details.
“There’s a lot of people upset about it,” said Dennis Thomas, 33, who works at Abe’s Barbeque.
“Why would somebody want to do something like that to somebody of that caliber? He was a highly respected person in town,” Thomas said.
The 34-year-old Democrat wasn’t running what many would consider a typical campaign for political office in Mississippi, which is known for its conservative politics.
Campaign spokesman Jarod Keith said McMillian’s campaign was noteworthy because he may have been the first openly gay man to be a viable candidate for public office in the state. McMillian, who was black, had also forged ties while serving for four years as international executive director of the historically black Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. Photos on McMillian’s website and Facebook page show him with a younger Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton and with U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat.
