ANOTHER NOISEY LETDOWN

I don’t like pushing negativity on here and I promise my next post is gonna be about a bunch of music I really like but ever since we found out about NOISEY’s highly questionable media tactics a week ago, I’m a little hypersensitive to their bullshit.  So when I saw this headline I felt like I needed to say something.

Do yourself a favor and don’t read the interview, use it as motivation to never ingest anything NOISEY produces.  I’m not saying that there should never be humorous content in a music publication but when you see the pitiful, generic, two-paragraph treatment they gave to Sean Price’s death yesterday and the most recent interview they did with Sean early last year which is only 2 questions longer than they give to some white dude on the internet who said 4 words of a rap song simultaneously with the rapper in the recording, it’s pretty clear where the priorities and sentiments lie with the NOISEY editors.  There’s plenty of interesting (and humorous) content in the rap world, you don’t need to swallow NOISEY’s bullshit, fuckin’ onion head bastards.

RAPPERS AND MOVIES

You don’t have to listen to much rap to hear about a billion references to Scarface, Goodfellas, and movies of that type, but this Vibe article just came out asking what non-gangster movies they were really into, and it had some kinda interesting stuff in it.  I do have a couple qualms with some of how it was treated; many rappers still chose pretty gangster/crime movie titles (Juice, Mean Streets, New Jack City, etc.) and for an article that’s supposed to be interesting because it surprises you with “soft” movies being appreciated by people with very “hard” personas, they asked a fair amount of rappers who weren’t that “hard” to begin with: Common, Q-Tip, etc.  But there still were some interesting choices, Big K.R.I.T. chose There Will Be Blood, and for a pretty interesting reason, and my favorite was Sean Price, who chose Good Will Hunting.

I was real smart in school. I used to be really kind of a nerd almost when I was young, like grade school. I was in the top of my class always and I was into video games. But then by the time I was fourteen I was selling crack. That’s why I relate to that movie. A lot of smart poor kids who never get a chance because of their wild upbringing.

I think this is the kind of stuff that article was fishing for, and I really like that answer a lot.  I’ve always liked that movie too but I never thought about the part of me liking rap being at all related to the part of me liking Good Will Hunting, that’s pretty interesting to me.  But he brings up a really good point and it’s cool that he could relate to a character like that.
