laviiish asked: checked the dumb questions index as instructed and noticed the question about you saying that "you have no problem with rape or homophobia in rap" and your answer to that question: "an artist’s only social responsibility is to create great art." do you have any new thoughts or feelings about the topics discussed in that question and answer in regards to rick ross' line in "U.O.E.N.O." ?
I don’t give a fuck about a dumb Rick Ross rape joke on an amazing song. The guy has been rapping about killing other black men for nearly a decade now so it’s safe to assume that portraying a morally sound character on record is not high on his list of artistic goals. If you demand otherwise from entertainment then it might be time for you to seek out a different entertainer.
richbasedwealth-deactivated2013 asked: im glad you posted that trenton mix cuz i grew up in trenton and was pretty sure we have like no culture except for what we borrow from ny and philly
I think it’s easy to ignore or underrate your culture when you’re living in it but trust that if you ever leave you’ll immediately realize how great the dumb things you once took for granted really are. I mean come on bruh we have pork rolls and tomato pie and BOOMER. Have some pride.
And I’ve never borrowed shit from Philly and especially not from NY. The world takes and don’t you ever forget that.
Here’s a cool interview about how Trentonians threw batteries at Rakim when he performed at the war memorial. R.I.P. Tony D.
