On the infamous Papoose/Kay Slay confrontation: What's worse? Ignorance in the form of Kay Slay dissing on the snap dance or, umm, intelligence in the form of this DJ Raedawn character demanding that Papoose "stop the demonic violence"? People talk about what's happened to hip hop and 'O! The Ignorance' but way too often what passes as intelligent in hip hop is fundamentalist Abrahamic bullshit or it's shameless, hoary Marxism, conspiracy theories, and atavistic black Nationalism or it's some crazy space shit that don't make no sense. Sometimes, like this, it's warmed over hippy banalities. It's arrogance without a cause and conflates rebelliousness with petulance. It's always self-serious and might just deserve a beatdown, or at least an ejection from the show.
Well over a month ago, the dude Emil told y'all who I am and what I'm about (i.e. Robert, posting in this blog). I didn't show up then, though. Time was, three months ago to the day, I'd apologize to the homie for dropping the ball on him. Since then I learned something: people with newborn babies don't owe anyone apologies. Having a newborn allows me a degree of slack that I've never known. New parents get random gifts, extensions on projects, and incredible parking spots. You have to try it.
So I'm going to be working myself in right about now. I bet Emil thought I'd given up. Jokes on you, Jack.
The rest of this post will be organized like an Emil post, so as not to throw the locals off too hard.
Oh and Kay Slay, next time you're in the A, hit up Sevananda if you're hunting for dreads there. I promise they exist.
Killrichpeopleandtaketheirmoney.com: Thasss right. The best part is the message to the 1337: pwn t3h government.
Ever wonder what the guys who do the voiceovers for movie trailers look like? Me either but still I got a few "oh it's that guy's" out here.
