So i’m at work trying to concentrate but this mothaf-kkin wicked track is playing. Its so money!!! Basically its a remix of Make it Rain.. one of my favs song and the only time i break out my “fat joe” dance with his make it rain gesture. I started getting into hip-hop just before i left, with my “guy” leaving BET on just before I’d have to go to an audition or he’d have to do his work. It was non-stop black music in his iPod, then on his computer, then in bed… so even though I know I’m chinese, I thought i was black— plus all the brothas around also didn’t really help my identity crisis.
Don’t get me wrong, i’m not trying to front my love for hip hop or anything like that. I’m just missing the beats that i used to rock to and its more of a new found enjoyment for this genre.
Anyways – i’m back in KL and its all bout the fingtao. Not entirely, but i’m starting to enjoy music. And its not the typical Citrus House/80s jingle. It’s serious hard house/style/beat or whatever people talk about BPM here. I suddenly felt i was in Sweet Gets Wicked Halloween, Plaza of Nations in Vancouver. All i hear is trancy stuff in my friends cars. Tiesto, Armin Van Buren, blah blah like i really know. Nonetheless, wanted to share how i miss listening to hiphop, good stuff, not just MTV-soulja boy. There’s no real good stuff anymore. The site i used to dl my music from is now defunct.
Now back to work…
