One way to get on my bad side REALLY fast is to talk to me about hip hop. I LOVE rap and HATE a lot of hip hop heads (They hate me too – we’re even).
This “hip hop DJ” rolled in with SERATO to lay some scratches down on one of my friends tracks. Our fun game is trying to name all the rappers on this poster – because it’s an impossible hash of horribly drawn rappers from the 80s + 90s + Eminem. Anyways. The guy around the bottom right corner in the black hat is NOT FUCKING BUSTA RHYMES. When I explained that it was definitely NOT busta this guy started shooting off “facts” at me in some attempt to make me feel stupid (which is fine – i make people feel stupid all the time) – untill he asked “Do you even know where Busta comes from?” he then tried to inform me that Busta’s first track was Scenario and he used to rock it with Tribe.
SO LEADERS OF THE NEW SCHOOL NEVER HAPPENED!
I kept bringing up the song “Just another case of the PTA” and he looked through me – dead face – while still running his mouth about Scenario.
The last thing he said to me was “I love how INTENSE you are about Hip Hop.” – I laughed in his face extremely hard at this and then let him go back to his serato.
He was so wrong. And such an idiot. And so ignorant that he didn’t want to even be EDUCATED. Poor guy.
THIS is why i don’t talk about Hip Hop – there’s too many know it alls who don’t really know shit who could catch a fist in the face if they try to name all the members of Wu.
I CAN’T EVEN NAME ALL THE MEMBERS OF WU THERE ARE LIKE 10,000 PEOPLE IN WU TANG IT’S OKAY TO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING.
So please – if you see me at a show – can we just shotgun beers together?
ALSO : IF YOU CAN NAME ALL THE GUYS ON THE POSTER I’LL SEND YOU NAKED PICTURES.
