It took me a bit longer than I had anticipated to figure out the innards of a wordpress blog but it’s finally here! With this first entry, I feel like Nas at the beginning of “NY State of Mind”. The epic Primo beat is building up in his headphones and he feels compelled to start off the song in an a way that matches its intensity. He buys a bit of time by redundantly confirming that it’s time for him to start the song and then he attempts a grand entrance: “Straight out the dungeons of rap…” Perhaps that opening must have struck him as a tad over-dramatic but for whatever reason he does not find it sufficient to segue right into his verse. With a few seconds left to go before the start of his verse, he finally admits “I don’t know how to start this shit” and without further fanfare proceeds to deliver one of the most revered verses in hip-hop history.
Okay that first paragraph was me buying time. This right here is me admitting that I don’t know how to start this. The next entry is me just getting right into it without any further preamble. SUPAFRIK is here.
