Do a tune with The Chuckle Brothers. To me to you.
It's interesting to think about historical contingency, like, Luka might be the great untapped hip-hop talent, and if hip-hop had evolved differently so that there was any respect/legitimacy to white rap, he would be so famous rn, a poet laureate, and like, this forum wouldn't even exist he would've been so busy poppin bottles internationally, and everyone talking about the oughts blogging scene that gave rise to The Heronbone.I'm really interested in it because I was also a young stoned white man prone to 'over-identification' with rap music. I worked out fairly early on that this wasn't something I would allow myself to do. But given different surroundings and different associates, a different context, it might have been me. You can easily imagine corpsey as one of these people. Rapping about sexual despair and depression and alienation. As I say, most on dissensus have been one of these people. And I think over-identification is a kind of superpower.
