I feel what Lupe is doing with his new concept album The Cool, but it might go over the heads of the mainstream. It's a risky career move for the skateboardin' Chi-town MC but I respect his effort. Here's a new track:
Miss Info recently posted excerpts from Lil' Wayne's interview with Complex Magazine that lead me to question if that's only piff Weezy is tokin' on. It looks to me like someone enlightened Wayne to the philosophical concepts of existentialism and dualism but his quotes show that he hasn't fully grasped the concept i.e. "You are you, you make everything around you. You make water, you make the sky, because it’s you, if you don’t want that to be water then it ain’t water, fuck. It’s you, so…ya dig?"
Either he's under the influence of a mind-altering drug stronger than weed or he's plain going nuts. There's a fine line between thought-provoking words and insane ramblings, and Wayne's flirting with it. Stick to rapping and leave the heavy thinking to modern-day Kierkegaards.
