Sometimes I write things longer than 140 characters and actually post them on a website that I actually own. If you like boyhood stories about disappointment in rap magazines well then this is just for you. If you don’t sorry dawg I don’t know how not to complain about things. Anyways peep game, I wrote this for the latest edition of the homie Luke Sick’s Let’s Side zine
I fucking love rap music so fucking much. No other genre would ever produce songs like this. It is really is a music that is after my heart. Rap brings me so much fucking joy and hope for life.
This was the first music I ever liked and I will always love it. I will listen to the shittiest rap music before I will listen to the best of anything else just because I enjoy this music above all else. Yeah there are a lot of things I hate but that moment when you hear some young no name motherfucker come with some insane facemelter that just blows what you thought was possible the fuck away, that moment is what I’m constantly searching for. To relive those moments of the first time I ever hit rewind on a tape because I had to hear that shit again just to comprehend how amazing this music is. To relive the moment I first heard MOP screaming how about some hardcore, the moment I first heard Latyrx rapping at the sametime just confusing the fuck out of what I thought you could do. The first time I ever heard freestyle fellowship, the first time I ever heard digable planet’s 9th wonder, the first time I heard that first verse of When Will They Shoot and those crushing drums with Cube yelling “THE KKK HAS GOT 3 PIECE SUITS”, the first time I saw the cover We Can’t Be Stopped and said I want the new one, the first time my friend erik said “dude have you heard this ugk shit?” as he hit play, the first time I sat in my room and took the shrink wrap off a cassingle called Wu Tang Clan Ain’t Nothing To Fuck With, hearing the beginning of Shut’Em Down just crush me
I can’t even continue thinking of these memories because I’m getting to caught up, it’s fucking ridiculously emo but it’s so true. These are the moments I live for and will cherish for the rest of my life.
without this music I would have killed myself a long time ago.
