I’m not “streetwise”. I don’t do the hip-hop thing. In fact, I’ve been known to call it “hippy hoppy”.
I don’t listen to hip-hop. Well, I didn’t listen to hip-hop. All the sudden, it’s all I want to hear. I’ve particularly been on an Eminem kick. I really don’t get it. I mean, I was amused with him when he first came out. I enjoyed watching him at the VMAs. My brother was really into it. I remember my mom buying him the censored Marshall Mathers LP.
The odd thing is that I’m not into current hip-hop. Like I said, I’m listening to Eminem, Dr. Dre (2001, The Chronic), Biggie–all the stuff that was big when I was in high school. Maybe I’m being nostalgic? I don’t know. All I know is that it’s weird.
Until next time:
