But I’m smart. I’m so smart, and I’m in school.
Kanye West - Say You Will
Simple, loud, emotional.
I still like 808’s.
—I'll Erase Away Your Pain (Late)
Sippin’ my caramel latte to this, unfortunately I’m still cleaning my room. It’s been a few days.
—In High Places
I believe hip hop’s initial intent was to educate as it entertained, I believe hip hop is a collage art form. To collage properly or appreciate a collage, you have to understand all the components. Hip Hop borrows from blues, jazz, be bop, rock, spoken word, when you hear a hip hop sample, it is your duty to look up the original tracks, to explore the vast history and respect the organic creators. You don’t have to love it, but you owe it to yourself to listen. In my experience, most of the time, I end up liking the original more anyway.
This is a track by Mike Oldfield and Jon Anderson the worlds third favorite rapper ( I still feel there are more jay and wayne stans sorry) kanye west sampled this track called In High Places, and that is exactly where you end up blasting this beauty on headphones at 3a.m by yourself on a Sunday night.
