Introspective Ramblings (Don't mind me)

Recommended Posts

So I'm sitting in my living room reading a book, "Palestine and the Palestinians" which is really not important to anything. And I start to drift off mid passage into a world of deep introspection. I sort of turn on my ears and realize that I had instinctively turned the radio to a cool jazz station as opposed to the "rap/top 40" which was my old favorite. I can picture Sinatra shaking his head now, like you really turned to this station sucker. And I look down at a pair of jeans, that fit me, without a belt. A pair that are actually blue, without the name of a rapper on the tags. And realize that I abandoned my wildly coloured "Err forces" for a nice pair of brown air maxes. When I was 16, 17, 18 and even 19 I swore I would never give up hip-hop. And I don't think I have, I mean at age 20 I can still "drop a sick rhyme" if need be, and I'm still excited to go see a battle, but I don't know whats going on with me. I'm not one of these chumps that "gave up 'being hip-hop' to get a girl" or whatever. I never really sold out, I guess I just sort of smoothed out the rough spots over the years you know? Maybe I grew up a little, which is strange and a little scary to me. I mean, is there a time in your life when it's no longer "cool" to be hip-hop or whatever. My friends all tell me "you're hip-hop" I think that's becasue they're perpetually trying to be hip-hop. But I don't know I sort of feel like hip-hop is a part of me, but I'm no longer a part of it. I don't know, I still paint regularly, I'm still excited by the new Jay album, but I don't think like I used to, I no longer feel the need to be the individual representation of the culture. I guess I'm just a sell out....

 

Thank you for your time...

i used to listen to only hip hop, but i decided that none of it really applied to me, and i felt pretty silly turning it way up in my car so i switched genres to trip hop/downbeat and there i have stayed.

 

ube <- not black enough for hip hip.

<span style='color:black'>I've never really been a fan of hip hop. I get mad when people tell me I'm hip hop by the way i dress. I listen to jazz and "gold" music whether it be soul, rock or what have you. Bastards.</span>
