  1. “We will continue to run in place selling dope to ourselves (figuratively and literally at times) if we don’t get the game.”

    20 years of gangsta rap seems to me like a prolonged display of apathy or (more conspiratorially) suicide by design.

  2. We cannot see the forrest for the tree’s unfortunately and in this aforementioned reality, we don’t connect the dots as to the extension of depiction and control of image, control of the economics of the art. Scarface did not say anything that isn’t the truth. We will continue to run in place selling dope to ourselves (figuratively and literally at times) if we don’t get the game.

    “Gangsta rap has been popular for 20 years…” Wow.
