Hip-hop is about the brilliance of pavement poetry.
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.
If your art is coming from a truthful place, someone out there will relate to it, regardless of how 'mysterious' you appear.
Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.
