    Does anyone believe that’s we’ve never really been to the Moon ?

    ^^

    Nope.

    How we not have color TV but we get up there.

    And now we have portable HD TV and can barely make it outside the earths atmosphere.

    Kizzas be lyin.

    ^I think we been. At least once of the 3 times. One I KNOW had to be a lie, because Neil Armstrong never wanted to talk about it, held no interviews about it, and broke down giving his speech to the new generation of astronomers when he got to talking about them learning about previous mistakes and cover-ups and them being ashamed of what took place.

    No sign America reaching its peak in art

    There has to be more *ahem*

    ^

    People rag on rap for not being about shit right now

    But what other genre is pushing the boundaries ? Rock ? Techno ? Country ?

    Everything is meh right now

    And what about Fashion ? No new groundbreaking styles or nothing

    Even ideas ? Nothing revolutionary. Most people who are considered revolutionary thinkers in our time, just want to take this back to a previous time

    memo to Royce: nobody takes you seriously as a grown black man from Detroit in his mid 30s wearing NFL New Era fitteds, shades indoors, and high top sneakers from Foot Action my g.

    > lol Why a nigga gotta be suited up to get that respect? doing you>>>>>

    ^
    the NFL New Eras are where I draw the line fam

    if it ain’t an MLB fitted, I don’t respect it.

  4. Captain Planet Says:

    But maybe I’m wrong tho ayo

    Maybe we just need one great thinker to provoke thought in all areas of life

    Chief Keef is showing promise

    america isn’t a creative nation, america has always been a rest-haven for foreign artist to emerge.

    yo i’s watching chi alis’ funky lemonade video the other day.

    if a young nigga is rapping nowadays & he ain dancing suspect with a zesty troupe in tow then he really don’t got no lil viddy hoes around him.

    i think chi ali was in his early twenties then. he had some cute lil breezies in that video.

    all these new blog sensation rappers can’t afford a bunch of giddy hoes in their vids.

    like…spitta in his thirties & he hardly got hoes in his visuals yet he always giving pimp logistic bars acting like he young.

    alibis, yo.

    oh & funky lemonade>

    I don’t know if you think Ernest Hemingway isn’t considered modern

    Might even through Hunter S. Thompson because he symbolized the death of the sixties

    But if we get into movies where America really excels, I’d throw in Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg

    Honorable Mentions ? : Steven King

    ^Boundaries are sure to become boundless fam. The one constant in life outside of inevitability of death is boundaries being offset and eradicated. Progression is a must. As long as time exists, boundaries will always be pushed back.

    From the creation of fire and that being the chief technology down to holding all of the world’s info in the palm of your hand in a smartphone. Shit is extra impressive.

    Hopefully you are only talkin art because Americans have pioneered so many industries creatively in the last 10 years

    But pretentious people run the art world so their views are moot.

    My art >> Damien Hurst & Banksy

    ^This is hella wrong and hella flawed b.

    America is 1) a rest haven for all cultures belonging to no real derivative set of people because they were eradicated. and 2) we are at the forefront of all things Movie related, music related, literary related, technologically comparative to Asia, etc.

    We are also at the forefront of Psychological advancements and politics Jung, Julian James etc.

    Lockheed Martin been weaponizing us for long time. Our defense budget is that of the next 16 nations COMBINED. And weapons technology is the chief technology.
