A FRIEND IS AN ENEMY YOU CAN’T SEE

This song was floating around in my head for a while yesterday at work for some reason.  It totally wasn’t because any of my friends were coming anywhere close to betraying me or anything like that, my friends are still totally awesome, I think just the mood of it was where I was at for a while.

A lot of you will recognize this from the first installment of the Madlib Beat Konducta series.  He does some pretty cool shit with it.

I feel really lucky I’ve never experienced the kind of situation these songs reference.  I don’t know if I’m just really good at picking who I’m friends with, or if I’ve just been lucky, or if I live in a certain time, place, and social position where those kinds of betrayals just aren’t very common. It’s hard to say, and maybe it’s a combination of those.  But from what I can tell from listening to blues, soul, funk, and rap music, it seems like that kinda shit is happening all the time to a whole lot of other people, so I’m really thankful to all my friends for not being that way.  Y’all are the best, for real.

    One day i’m going to betray the shit out of you Rick. It’s gonna be so epic, and then you can write a sad song about it.
