…”even suburban kids copy your shit and duplicate it”…

“i don’t worship him like i worship other artists such as kool keith”

i’m glad you brought up KOOL KEITH.

you know why?

because in Kool Keith’s song “GOODBYE RAP” (01:45), Keith delineates about 10 POINTS that he considers WACK in today’s Hip-Hop.

and i can GUARANTEE you that MACKLEMORE and RYAN LEWIS would fall among those points IF you asked K.K. in person.

do you really think that KOOL KEITH would ENDORSE Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as genuine, authentic, organic HIP-HOP???

REALLY?

– anyways –

the fact of the matter is that WHITE FANS don’t care about GENUINE, AUTHENTIC, ORGANIC Hip-Hop – – – AS A WHOLE – – – and support BULLSHIT more than any other group of Hip-Hop fans.

as a final point, WHITE FANS and WHITE RAPPERS are currently doing more of a DISSERVICE to Hip-Hop than a SERVICE.

  1. that track means something different to each listener.

    to you it means one thing.

    to me it is directed at the phonies. the ones who use the mantle of hip hop to get money. they pose. they follow the ignorant stereotypes of rap and don’t back it up with artistic merit.

    yes, i can see kool keith appreciating what mack and ryan brought to music.
    not hip hop, just music.

    (lol at trying to use him as the hip-hop litmus-test supreme court.
    kool keith is mentally ill.)

  2. that track is directed at the historical re-enacters. those who dress up in old battle gear and re-fight the revolutionary war.

    those guys are in rap now. they just repeat what they saw from nwa or scarface. puff daddy or suge knight.
    keith was going after the boring dudes.

    mack is not boring.
    you can hate him, but he is not re-hashing rap stereotypes.
    he is creating his own lane…

  3. “yes, i can see kool keith appreciating what mack and ryan brought to music.”

    no…no…no way…

    “lol at trying to use him as the hip-hop litmus-test supreme court.”

    that’s just an EXAMPLE judge…but he would be a SOLID judge, nonetheless; mental illness or not.

  4. “you can hate him, but he is not re-hashing rap stereotypes.

    i don’t “HATE” Macklemore…

    i just have enough FORESIGHT to know how he’s NEGATIVELY IMPACTING THE FUTURE OF HIP-HOP / RAP for BLACK PEOPLE from both a POLITICAL and CREATIVE standpoint.

  5. “he is creating his own lane…”

    hardly.

    he’s INFRINGING on Black music by CHARTING as HIP-HOP / R&B.

    he is NEITHER.

    he’s has NOTHING TO DO WITH “BLACK” MUSIC…SO HE DOESN’T DESERVE THOSE TITLES…NEITHER TITLE; NEITHER LABEL.

  6. by the way,
    i still listen to circa 96 and white man white man.
    all that stuff from last year.
    so goddamn dope.

    i know that makes me just another irrational fan,
    but that’s the power of music.

    in these conversations here i have taken a devil’s advocate approach in some occasions.

    i do not argue simply for the sake of contradiction.
    that would make haywire the same as 99% of the internet.

    people arguing yes vs. no.
    that doesn’t go very far.

    you might be surprised to find how many of your posts i agree with at first read,
    and then go through and try to find weakness in the argument.
    it has been quite an enjoyable exercise.

    but my point is really something else.
    i am so curious about your plans to release music to the public.

    i know this is a difficult thing to do.
    and as a musician, i respect your love of making music just for the sake of art.
    but as a fan, i want to see your stuff get out there.

    so you see yourself releasing a new project soon?

    • “you see yourself releasing a new project soon?”

      to tell you the truth – I REALLY DON’T.

      in the climate that Hip-Hop is in, I’M COO.

      i don’t want anything to do with the culture; in a modern / general sense.

      i don’t wanna be lumped in with other artists – i don’t wanna be on the same ‘grind’ as them…

      i just want to be my own separate entity, man…

      i don’t make music for chics.

      i don’t make music for White people.

      i don’t make music for Black people.

      i don’t make music for radio.

      i don’t make music for clubs.

      fukc a ‘movement’

      fukc ‘groupies’

      fukc ‘stuntin’

      fukc ‘hype’

      fukc ‘press’

      i make music because i’m communicating with something else that’s out there – all that other shit can kick rocks.

      • “i make music because i’m communicating with something else that’s out there.”

        but you have to accept that others can find meaning in the music you make.

        and the collection of fyle formatz music that exists on the internet is massive.
        we’re talking about dozens and dozens of tracks.
        it is a monumental catalog.

        if soundcloud went down, i have a feeling that hackers would upload your tracks to pirate bay or something and the only place they would exist would be in an illegal encryption-encoded torrent file zipping through the servers of the world.

        of course fyle formatz is not pop.
        not for radio.
        it’s dangerous music.

        just trying to figure out why my response to the fyle formatz tracks has been so hardcore.
        i would expect hundreds of people to be flocking to haywire.

        why is fyle formatz so inaccessible?

      • “but you have to accept that others can find meaning in the music you make.”

        naw…too much politics.

        i’d rather make music for aliens, entities, and spirits than to make music for corny-ass pseudo / fly-by-night fans that are overly-concerned with trends, YouTube hits, and downloads.

        UNDER underground is my genre.

        i don’t got time for people’s bullshit ‘networks’ (social / social-media, or press)

        i don’t got time to be compared with this artist or that producer.

        in other words, I DON’T GOT TIME FOR SEATTLE HIP-HOP.

        i’ll LISTEN to SEATTLE HIP-HOP…i listen to S.H.H. DAILY / RELIGIOUSLY, but to be a part of it?

        NAW…i’m coo.

        clique up with these guys or clique up with those guys?

        NEITHER.

        share fan-bases?

        NOPE.

        share a stage?

        HELL NO.

        i prefer my S.H.H. at a distance and on my terms.

      • “it is a monumental catalog.”

        yeah…it’s a solid sketchbook.

        i mean, from a production / instrumental standpoint, it’s pretty heavy – – – but from an artist standpoint, it’s more demo-ish…once i polish my sound quality a little bit more, i’ll implement the next phase.

      • “if soundcloud went down”

        right.

        i’ve thought about that.

        i’ll put out an ‘official’ ALBUM (or two) by the end of this year; for the sake of archival. i just have to work on my artwork and mixing games a little bit more.

      • “i would expect hundreds of people to be flocking to haywire.

        why is fyle formatz so inaccessible?”

        for a few reasons:

        1. EVERYBODY HATES YOU UNTIL EVERYBODY LOVES YOU.

        2. (a) we’re not in a period of time where people desire SUBSTANCE.

        (b) we’re not in a period of time where people desire UPLIFTMENT.

        (c) we’re not in a period of time where people desire ACCOUNTABILITY.

        3. the ‘most popular’ artists out here, i don’t ‘feel’ them, their ‘direction’, their ‘frequency’ and / or their subject matter – and i let it be known.

        4. i’m still in PRACTICE MODE, meaning i haven’t released anything OFFICIAL yet (besides ‘2012’) – – – ESPECIALLY video. i haven’t even touched ‘video’ yet because that’s not where i’m at right now.

        5. i don’t do music to eat off of music. i don’t aspire to be a famous artist or famous producer. artistically and creatively, i’m just going in a different direction than people, and since so many people are fake egotistical in-denial sheep, it’s safer for them to avoid people like me – – –

        but i digress.

        people ‘flocking’ to Haywire was never my intent…i’m UNDER UNDERGROUND, and that’s where i’m content.

  7. “and then go through and try to find weakness in the argument.”

    yeah…the points i make here a generally DISAGREEABLE by many / most Whites AND Blacks alike…but you know what? in my days, i’ve figured out that it’s more important to BE TRUE TO YOURSELF than to ‘FIT IN’.

    i mean, if Hip-Hop was more TRUE TO ITSELF, then it wouldn’t have decayed to the level that it’s at right now.

    When people stop being true to themselves, they lose focus of the ORIGINAL REASON WHY THEY WERE INCARNATED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    this blog is an ode, a mirror, and an oath –

    an ODE to the ones that promote truth over falsehood in the midst of ridicule

    a mirror to myself – “if you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change”

    and an oath to fulfilling my purpose here on this plane.

    even though much of Hip-Hop has lost sight of the ‘big picture’, i refuse to.

    and if it takes the abandonment of HIp-Hop in order to self-actualize, THEN SO BE IT.

    • thanks.

      i just quit believing in music (in a general sense)

      or

      …i quit believing in the PEOPLE…
