I'm a barber now. Been licensed since 2012. I work in a city outside of Boston. I still have a mic, but I don't pick it up. I still have lyrics in my head, but I don't write them down. I still listen and love hip-hop but I don't like new rappers. I still want to make music but I dont. One day I got writers block and decided that in order to fall back in love with music that I needed to walk away, its been almost 5 years. I'm getting older... I've lost a lot of connections and I'm sure fans. I miss having my outlet... I miss my friends from around the world. I keep saying ill come back but sometimes I wonder if I ever will.
OK I cant even say this fully seriously.... However I feel like Encino man with Hip-Hop. I just came out of my frozen cryogenic state and began listening to what is "popular" again. I said screw it... I never wanted to give up on my music, anyone who truly knows me knows I LOVE anything to do with REAL rap music, and hip-hop. I no longer want to hate on a certain style of rap now, instead just hate individual rappers. My biggest mistake in life was deciding to myself what "REAL" rap wasn't instead of embracing the fact that music is music and there is art in any style. To segregate a certain style is to not accept evolution. If you can't evolve, you cannot survive. Stilll...... at the end of the day... If your music sounds bad, I still will not like it or accept it as art. Its a very thin line in my opinion.
oldie but goodie.
