bet that made you think about the days when you actually followed rap instead of just letting rap caviar do the workImmediately was reminded of OJ and Kush era Wiz by that fresh/nef tune and then he raps "we was just kids getting high to Wiz/nowadays i get high when i'm not with my kids"
what happened to you Corpsey? and don't come with that lazy line of "i got old m8"Haha true
I don't even listen to rap caviar rap these days. I occasionally visit Martorialist to see what he's saying and that's it.
I was trawling through this thread the other night and feeling a bit nostalgic for the days when I still cared.
all these factors make sense, last one is a part that i think sometimes doesn't get brought up where people find a world beyond whatever thing they're locked into and how it can significantly alter that relationshipI really don't know. I guess I kind of burned out on rap from writing about it "professionally" and force-feeding myself mixtapes I didn't even really like.
Once in a blue moon I engage (like when Crowley posted an end of year list and when you were sharing all that Detroit stuff) and I find a lot of stuff I like, but the drive to engage isn't there anymore.
Another (possibly spurious) reason might be that when I got really into rap music back in 2010 I was either a student or unemployed and I had a lot of time on my hands to read (and write) blogs. Now it feels like I've not got much time at all.
Oh, and there's also Spotify - which opened up a whole world of non-rap music to listen to and caused me to stop investigating other sources like blogs and mixtape sites like datpiff.
There's a discussion earlier in this thread about this – a blog or interview with Noz where he talks about how music journalists are forced to write about things they don't really care about in order to have a career.I really don't know. I guess I kind of burned out on rap from writing about it "professionally" and force-feeding myself mixtapes I didn't even really like.
me neither because it's a mystery. i was hoping other people who feel the same way could help me unravel it a bit- not fully that would ruin it- but not trying to convince unbelieversi'm not entirely sure what you're getting at
