you know it’s a quality interview when Westwood isn’t asking questions and lets a guy such as Bussa Buss drop insights, knowledge, stories all from his own personal experience & observation.
i’m glad that Busta touched on the gap between the beginning of hip-hop and where it’s gotten to now; its current juncture. it’s important that guys like Buss are around “to remind,” like he said and spoke of Q-Tip and the other “gatekeepers” of the culture.
P.S. Busta Rhymes i.m.o, is definitely one of the greatest rappers in hip-hop to touch it. nothing but respect for an OG such as him, 25 years in; with it being such a blessing to have him still relevant and willing to contribute to what’s going on; feeling discontent with what he’s done for the ting thus far. and if his next album is really what he’s cracking it up to be, then i’m supe-r-eady to hear what he threw in the cauldron.
what was going on with Westwood’s hand, though?
This one might be the most amazing speech I ever heard. And that painting is just incredible; making me want to create something great… and then again… then again… and again.
“… it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and working toward it while letting go of how it might come to pass.”
Thank you for the suggess, Abi, you Absolute boss~ess!
And also, just a general thank you to all people helping me through my weeks; giving me a chance to release whatever it is I need to, in order for me to let my ship sail rather than sink. Everything always comes back into sync for Sinc, somehow. Thank you, Universe; God, doe allowing that.
Off the bat, how much J.R. is missed can’t be reiterated. That guy sold horror to me as a child, and his commentary now serves pure comedy to me as an adult.
W~O~ak~E~a Flocka at it again. Those facial expressions 😫😫😫 Raury looking like the happiest person I’ve ever seen, lmfao!
I just thought of this outta nowhere, just because I was rapping, “God knows I don’t wanna go prison…”
“Underdog Psychosis” is something I cite as an early eye-opener for me. It could’ve been anybody saying the same words, sitting in that same room, behind the same camera but the fact that it was Skepta, I think, did something way more for me. To hear it from him. And this was one of the realest things I’d ever heard from anybody at the time. It just spoke to me. Skepta was letting us all know about “They” from time ago, my G.
I hope you can grab some good from this. I won’t ever forget this video, and I don’t know when will be the last time I sit and watch it. May it be as good as it has been to me, to you, like the Chuckles.
The more and more I see things like this, and hear [people’s] stories about struggles with everyday life due to not feeling like their true self, the more open my mind gets. I’ve just been educated.
It’s been something I’ve always questioned, but I genuinely believe that “gender” is bullshit now. I used to be one of those guys who thought you aren’t born in / into whatever your soul considers you to be, and that it was a matter of “preference.” I can’t ignore that nurture exists; but I feel like though you may be molded into something – it’s something you’re not; that you never were meant to be by nature. Nature is who you are; that’s always going to be home to you.
But what’s really important? Well, I agree with the statement about “what liberates you.”
Praises to this guy human being. Thank you for sharing ‘the knowing.’ Thought it’d only be right I share this video today.
