Damn, DMX... that sucks. He seemed to have turned a corner addiction wise and people are posting a lot of positive anecdotes about meeting him. Same day motherfuckers over here wall-to-wall covering 99-year old prince philip, who has looked like an unearthed reanimated corpse for like the past 25 years, nobody is surprised that guy croaked. Nobody even likes him! But nobody at work knew X!!! What the fuck!!
Always cracks me up everyone talking about equality, undoing the patriarchy and dealing with the fact the US is basically a racist oligarchy but then many of these same people and news outlets are obsessed with the British Royalty and idolizing them. You know, the monarchy that murdered and enslaved millions while stealing and plundering their lands and property many of which the monarchy still posses and refuse to return to the rightfully owners/descendants. Most museums is stolen shit people especially in England. And they stay rich and powerful (and friends of scum like Epstein) when they should have been stripped of it all a long time ago. No wonder this planet is a disaster. It's like the US forgot we fought a war with them to gain our independence which we've since totally flushed down the toilet.
The whitest and blackest men on Earth died on the same day.
DMX deff an original always loved this version of Get At Me Dog with the Lox.
I don't know how I hadn't heard that before. Styles goes off too... and Jada sounds so young.
I think D.U. were slept on generally... They had a "Brand" but it never got the kind of shine that Wu did, for example.
At the time they were making noise and well known. But as time moved on, I definitely feel like they should be a bigger note in history. They were the early pioneers of the merging of west coast hip hop and funk. Even today at work on a zoom call with a co-worker who is a huge 2Pac fan. I made a comment of Shock G's passing and he didn't know the connection. Mind you, he was under 30.
Thank said. I'm now left wondering if there are Burger Kings in the after life?
The album is a concept album about "G.S.R.A." (Genetic Suppression Relief Antidotes), a pharmaceutical substance that is produced in the form of a large glowing pill about the size of a quarter, which comes in a condom-sized package and is allegedly developed by the government to provide its intended users such as astronauts with a satisfying sexual experience in situations where the normal attainment of such experiences would be counter-productive to the mission at hand.
I'm old so I remember kids in school all trying to figure out who Humpty was and a girl specifically telling me his face was burnt from hot grease splashing out of a deep fryer so that's why he wore the fake nose and glasses!
I'm that old too - I remember reading rumours about Humpty's face being disfigured in whatever rap mag I was buying at the time.
