Donnie Darko is the Detroit baphomet, with his mystical spells casting with his ever so dreamy flow. The rapper gives us a laid back flow over laid back production. Showing his shadows while unveiling some woke truths about himself. He does not care as he swags his way through a boom bap beat, as this is not normal for most rappers as they lyrically excersice through beats with a viscous flow pattern. Be sure to check out the swagged out odd-ball creative in his latest visuals, Smooth.
Right now in current culture, competition has westernized the black male. Competition has helped molded the conscious culture not to speak out of love. But to prove that I can lead off being more smarter than you. While drinking heavy doses of liquor, bottle by bottle. Sitting in a throne with a head held so high you can not even see the ones falling before you parish. When we think of our economic resources, we talk with hot air spending it out of ignorance.
The ignorance of our sin has given a grace to breed a species that only care of themselves. Drinking poisons that are fed from billion dollar industries that were built off the backs of slaves. Only for them to display our culture as people that need to worship the material possessions. Becoming even more rich as our people die, day by day. While we have our artist re-chant the songs that make corporate america even more rich.
It has gotten so bad to the point black media as an indie source now self-destructs on it’s own. Because of the lies that are woven so deep into our culture for years and years. That it has gotten to the point, I do not even have to do it. It self drives it’s own destiny. As the rich smiles in our face, while the broken boy that is black faces a destiny of being shot. Then the rich people laughs even more as our worshiped artist sings this same song.
We embraced a capitalistic mindset when we can not accomplish true capitalism that makes this culture go further. While this is happening, the black race is being at face for extinction. Making everything that encompass an African-american culture become non-existent. Ego has became a forefront, making our hands beat on our chest as it has always been depicted.
Rap has taken a back-seat on community activism and cherishing our youth. We now cherish what it means to value WWE level entertainment done on a platform, playing into a sterotype on an independent level. I understand we rap to make success, some do it for the fun. If all means though, think on what a future can hold with the other talents you hold. I think starting out as a youth doing something positive to keep away and hone in on your thoughts is a great resource for hip-hop. Then as we evolve, we see the thoughts we write down then begin to manifest what we think. Some people write income, some people write revolution and some write destruction. In other words, I think instead of living in are dreams; embrace reality with force. You always wanted to be the man you say you are, then live it out. Why let the self-centered dream you are living on a image tell you other-wise. I think rap has helped breed community leaders, helped improve critical thinking and also promoted intercity communalism.
Then we have the other side of rap music where it is all about chasing a check. What it means to be a rapper now is to become property of another man and public image. Then watched your-self be dog walked around by your own sterotypes with a corporate agenda tied to this mans interest. Sometimes the myth may be true that some record labels are here to watch the prison rates rise, teen pregnancy go up and get the primal senses active. Drums and catch phrases help militaries prepare for war, so why can’t chants in a song boost the morale of a person to do an activity.
