"My conscience fuck with me so much that I can’t eat or sleep. The other side is selling dope & out here runnin’ the streets. And even though I’m gaining street fame coming from this rap game, lustful thinking & compulsive drinking is a normal thang. Some get erased & misplaced tryin to win the race. Some try to hold on to their place by smoking with lace. But see, drugs & plastic thugs ain’t gon’ change the hood, I’m smoking that skunk & popping that trunk to make me feel good." — Pimp C (RIP, Dec. 4, 2007) #hiphop #classic #emcee #music #art #life
“Confusion is a gift from God. Those times when you feel most desperate for a solution, sit. Wait. The information will become clear. The confusion is there to guide you. Seek detachment and become the producer of your life.” —RZA
This blessed my soul today.
I remember this song from my childhood. I had an older cousin who was a big P-Funk fan and he had every album. That’s how I become a lover of P-Funk. However, in my adult life, I grew to appreciate music more because of how it influences my life and supports my emotional state. So, I rediscovered this song as in one night it was playing, and I heard it differently. It took on more of an erotic vibe. Every blessed second of this song is sex. Close your eyes. Listen to the arrangement of this joint from Bootsy’s spongy, ‘deep in your soul’ bass playing to the way the song begins deliberately slow and soothing like foreplay but builds into beautiful rhythmic thrusts….
