Skyscrapers and everythang! Point 0,0 of this Hip-Hop thing we all love, and culture in general, too much goodness at every turn, you can’t help but feel some unordinary feeling of excitement. A textbook example of our shit system of never ending development of capital and production, yet this beast is of a different breed. When the crushing thumb of capitalist rule came down, folks threw up their thumb tacks in the name of cultural identity. Truly an international city, errybody live here and hold it down with their own language and customs, including FOOD!, never successfully forced to assimilate. The stereotypes of pissed off New Yorkers are absolutely true, but that’s just some real shit. Think of how you can get mad at your family and close friends, but in the end it’s all love right? It is until someone gets shot I suppose… but I’mma still yell right back anyway!
I had a wonderful time in NY, can you tell? MUCH LOVE to the Blackman for housing yours truly, playin host of all hosts, providing mobility and shreddage (even with hot pink accents, shit got handled), and serving up game in a sticker covered MickeyD’s cup.
