The internet is crazy.
So, as you know, I’ve recently developed something of an addiction to Rap Genius – the hiphop lyric analysis website. I’ve had a go at parsing a few songs, including some by English teacher/ rapper J- Live.
One of his best (in my opinion) is a ridiculously hype song called ‘Them That’s Not’; a kind of modern fable about the ills of selling out for commercial gain.
Anyway, I wrote my notes on the song and thought I’d contact J himself (via Twitter) to see what he thought. Lo and behold, he actually replied! He said my work was ‘Awesome’ and, despite some mistakes, was ‘honored’. Hence why the internet is crazy.
