It’s amazing for me to see these kids who are my dynamic opposite be motivated by the same thing I was when I started rapping. Interesting to note…hip-hop is the norm these days which, according to everything I learned as a kid, makes it the thing to rebel against. Of course, when I say “hip-hop” I’m basically talking about the general public’s understanding of it…according to whatever is force fed to them via mainstream channels. These kids are me in 6th grade in some strange but familiar parallel universe. It’s bugging me out.
