The Corwood Representative goes 'Rap'!?
Recorded on August 5th, 2016 in the homeland of Tupac who would have probably killed himself if he had to listen to this without being drunk...Sixpac?
Well, its more 'Hip' without the 'Hop',Public 'Enema' rather than 'Enemy',but overlaid with bad psychoanalytical poetry delivered in a style outside the jail cell of the 4/4 beat. Recorded as if the 'rapper' (Jandek or Sheila) were falling from the top of the world trade centre on 9/11,free-stylin' during a slow motion two hour drop.Regularly being hit by faster falling debris.
As is documented I've fucking hated Hip Hop since i was a teen in 1979,with its stoic refusal to move on......and don't get me going about the clothes!The whole culture bores the living shite out of me.
Somehow its hard to imagine Jandek in a basball cap turned to the front ,nevermind to the side.
Is there such a thing as slo-core Hip Hop?.....if there isn't,there should be.I could be cajoled into enjoying that....a bit.
The drum programmer,Kyle Madson, even seems to have cleverly managed to make the drum box somehow sound off-beat at times, and brilliantly monotonous in other places.
One must say, that the Representative never fails to surprise,and long may it continue,even after death?.....like that Muslimgauze bloke?
