Blog= an inconsistent ejaculation into the endless web of non-responses and distant cracked computer monitors.
Was the first hip-hop album I ever listened to and I have to say happily that it still feels so natural to me as a go to.
When it was shown to me I had been listening to so much simplistic, loud, repetitive, hardcore punk bands, and the occaisional indie rock bands. It nearly leaped from the headphones when Genesis kicked it off. It was aggressive but laid back, the beat was clear but it was relaxed. Life’s a bitch and then you die. LIVE IN THE NOW. DON’T GET CAUGHT UP. It was mindblowing for a kid who had never been acquainted with hip-hop before. It took all the emotions I felt motivated me to look to street punk and hardcore but it confronted them head on lyrically with powerful imagery that could not be denied.
God damn if it still ain’t fuckin great.
What’s punker than punk. NOT PUNK.
Who’s world is this?
