Back on Wu-ForEver site they re-pulish an article about the Rebel INS upcoming manifesto, the article actually got me thinking into providing a bit of my take. How does the Wu-Tang prime flower shine so much within the group yet so lost in the solo environment… here is my original answer:
You know when I think of the Rebel INS I expect a battle cat with a very guttery like story telling. Unfortuantely you are completely right, his highlights havent really pass to his solo projects. I mean I think of Inspectah on Cold World, talking about “I thought he was death but instead, he hit a 12 yr old girl in the head and then left”.
Or a big opener like Triumph “I bomb atomically, Socrates philosophies and high prophecies, can’t define it how I’ve been droppin’ this“. Just pure epic hiphop gold.
He is definitely a force of nature in his verse, the talent is there, but the inspiration and ability to create momentum goes kind of sour.
I remember Deck doing great collabo’s like the one with Gangstar “I leave scientist mentally scarce, triple extra large, sounds like rockstars who smash guitars“. However when I heard uncontrollable substance, revolution, it was just an angle more of talib kweli than an old shaolin soldier.
Mast Killa album in contrast could recreate the magic, the kung-fu flics, the 120 questions, the science and math was basically in place, and even if his albums was slept on, it was a classic in it’s own nature.
I think Deck need to come back to the shaolin soul, prove his own thoughts, and inspire the pain from the slums. Bring Tekitha, that girl build miracles. The project would be much powerful and gutterful and then you have a master works.
So usually I claim this blog is personal but seldomly do I talk about personal stuff, sure I talk about my hobbies but never about anything meaningful or private except on few topics where I really thought it will help getting things out like my ex gf. I dunno if it helped or not but it surely was something that I can thought of it as personal. Well here is another thing it has fill my brain today.
So I had a dream, I wouldn’t call it a nightmare but neither would I call it a pleasant dream. It was a quite odd in regards that I actually repeat itself on a few parts specially the tsunami part. This time the dream started with me and a group of friends (I supposed) came into a small root at the roof of a house in Cancun. Inside it was a tv a chair and some storage stuff. Then I remember that a grey fog came and took the visibility of even the door and window. Then I saw that something start showing and it was the head of a small plane, the planes were floating, being dragged by the fog.
I remember stepping out and seen that the planes were actually quite cloose to other roof of the houses and one even stumbling with a slightly higher wall. I went to the ground level and to the sea to find a sea filled with larger planes, huge planes floating in the water. In the horizon I saw some starting to blow up and causing a fire on the shore because of the fuel in them.
This started forming some kinds of Tsunamis that start covering the ground and hitting us. I most have had many lives since I was squashed several times by this huge waves. Even learn how to avoid them, most of the other toursit were trying to gather food and water to survive, and even do concerts to entertained and then waves just kept crushing them. At the end I just woke up, no grand finale but just woke.
What I start thinking after that day was that tsunami dreams and high school dreams are one of the most common dreams I have. Earlier that week I also dream about being in high school playing basketball and going to the last year of HS on my old school which I actually never went since I changed schools before. My sister made a comment that makes me think she is right and maybe she have happened the same on her. She mentioned that it’s what provoke me the most stress in my life. Something I totally agree and I found it very interesting to keep me looking into it.
