    This guy can't be for real. This whole thing is so absurd I'm having trouble buying any of it. Specially after hearing that 'music'.
    b/w If people with these kinds of musical sensibilities are working for Waxpoetics, I'm definitely not going to bother with it anymore.

    He examined the roots of sampling in hip hop with his master's thesis at Tisch School of the Arts.

  • He beat you, and you losers are just going to have to deal with your sad little lives..

    I never really posted a lot on SoulStrut but this type of thing is what I always loved about this site, I don't remember the Hemol first wave but he seems to have been given a clowning so hard, that it has had an adverse affect on his mental state resulting in this fascinating thread.

    I have to admire his absolute lack of self awareness that obviously helps him get things done in the real world of today, but the result is so heinous with the rapping, dancing, onesies, whitey picnics, vape-ing, word vomit-y interviews that seem to steer towards talking about himself ("fosho" realy??) etc. I can only come to the conclusion that the aforementioned clowning was either not hard enough to stop him or too hard and responsible for creating him, like some sort of superhero comic storyline.

    And Wax Poetics really employ this cat to write for them? I stopped picking it up after issue 5 or 6, I can only imagine it's a very different publication nowadays. He probably gets paid more than I do. *shrugs*

    Never seen anything like it.

    Stay gold SoulStrut

    Sayin....



    Most likely his Pops...a very expensive and effective Defense attorney in Florida. Would also make sense how he is loosely associated with whatever stupid Florida coke story blahblahblah that he claimed in his initial post.

    Nothing to see here folks...just another hack with an inflated sense of self and skill; rocking HARD on his Daddy's dime. I thought it was going to be interesting....nope....typical shit.

    Damn now I'm bored with this dude.

    This degree of ultra refined high grade non-self awareness is so rare and hard to achieve - it take years of persistent denial and total absolutist self regard spun around in an ego-centrifuge - that I'm still harbouring the possibility that this is not some kind of budding Sasha Baron Cohen-style comic mind using the strut as foil to pre test a new personage?????? But maybe this is the real thing. Like the Higgs Boson, it's possible.

    People like this do exist though- art schools, brunch spots, thrift stores, visiting hours at high end seniors homes and Terry Richardson parties are full of them.

    Has your family been supportive of your musical pursuits?

    Not till recently. I caught a lot of shame and pressure from them for a long time. Which is why I went and got an MA. I was trying to stay true to myself and please them at the same time. To me being a professor of music was a viable option cause it was something my family could understand. Thankfully that didn???t work out completely, and I never got a PhD. We hit a breaking point at the end of last year though. It was one of the most painful things I???ve ever done, but I basically told them ???either you respect me and my choices or you???ll never hear from me again.??? It still hurts to talk about. I have a very close relationship with my family. On one hand they really empowered me to feel strong and to follow my heart, but on the other hand they fought real hard to try and force me to do what they wanted. Thankfully though they listened when I told them they had to quit meddling and be supportive. We have a much better understanding now. It???s cool now. My folks called me on Monday before my show to wish me luck, and they called the next day to see how it went.

    When did you begin to realize that you had something that people wanted to hear and that your rap could be something more than just a hobby?

    (Laughs) to be honest there are still some days where I doubt whether or not people care about what I do, but that???s really just the human elements of an eternal struggle. I will tell you though, that from the moment I started rapping anytime I ever rapped in front of people, I have always gotten tons of praise from folks of all walks of life. It always feels good when some crazy thuggin dude, comes up to me and is all ???man I was really feelin what you were sayin.??? But, when I realized I wasn???t going to be a professor, I took stock of my life because it was time to make a career choice. And the thing I was best-qualified for, the thing I had spent the most time doing, the thing that I was most clearly excellent at was rapping. It wasn???t until 2009 that I got real serious about it, and at that point it was a pretty objective decision based on the fact that aside from smoking weed, there is nothing that has come more naturally to me.

    It's definitely the canary in the mindf*ck that passes for culture today , time to take out the trash. Priceless.

  • Self awareness could make him good at comedy, like lonely island style raps. Hurts my brain to think about this guy, he has a lot of material on bandcamp. Guess that's worth something just the amount of effort.

    First his family rejected him, then his soulstrut family. It must hurt.
    His family wished him luck the other day. I think we should too.

    Luck.

    I founded Rad Reef and set about putting my design, journalism, branding, and marketing capacity to work for myself.

    WTF. No wonder they state "Rad Reef Proudly Presents:" before his name.

    MRW I realised this wasn't a thread-bump from five years ago.



    Possibly the most extraordinary display of asshurtedness I've ever witnessed in all my long years on this here internet.
