“I actually have been working on my ego though. Having the crazy ego is played out at this point in my life and career. I use to use it to build up my esteem when nobody believed in me. Now that people do believe and support my music and products the best response is thank you instead of “I told you so!!!” It’s cool to talk shit when you’re rapping but not in real life. When you meet little Wayne in person, he’s the nicest guy, for example. I just wane be a doper person which starts with me not always telling people how dope I think I am. I need to just get past myself. Drop the bravado and just make dope products. Everything is not that serious. As long as people think I act like a bitch, this type of shit will happen to me. I got a long road ahead of me to make people believe I’m not actually a huge douche but I’m up for the challenge.”—Kanye West
So if you don’t know, perhaps one of my favourite rappers of all time is Eminem. His hard hitting rhymes, his catchy beats, and his satirical style combine that with Dr. Dre’s impeccable producing skills, he is one of the most influential rappers of my generation.
So I just heard his new song “We Made You” and I must say he has delivered again. Not only does he still rap, but this time, his underlying theme is the bullshit they put on TV and the pop music thats ruining the music industry.
Here’s a list of all the people and things he makes fun of in his new song:
“You can’t remember sex. You can remember the fact of it, and recall the setting, and even the details, but the sex of the sex cannot be remembered, the substantive truth of it, it is by nature self-erasing, you can remember its anatomy and be left with a judgment as to the degree of your liking of it, but whatever it is as a splurge of being, as a loss, as a charge of the conviction of love stopping your heart like your execution, there is no memory of it in the brain, only the deduction that it happened and that time passed, leaving you with a silhouette that you want to fill in again.”—E.L. Doctorow (via reluctantbuddha) (via quote-book)
As I sit, bored as hell, in my SAS class, we discuss the possibilities and scientific facts of global warming. It has occurred to me that there are still people out there who do not believe the overwhelming scientific proof of global warming. I mean, what the fuck?!
