One of my favourite rap lines ever is "I done dirt like a worm"the imagery is complete,your imagination can grasp the notion of this tiny creature burrowing itself into the earth trying to make a living for Mrs Worm and the little wormies,a lot of people have to do dirt,dirt is an inescapable feature of existence on earth seeing as we are from dirt and to dirt we shall return,as a mataphor for life,imagine how hard it was to pass through school,for the graduates to get that BS.C,for emigrants to leave the country,for newlyweds to Meet the Parents like Ben Stiller.There was no escaping the dirt,the immersion in hardship or stress to get what was wanted or infact sometimes needed as a matter of necessity.After doing the dirt you can then say modestly or immodestly "been there done that"because of all the dirt caked under your fingertips as you clawed your way up towards the light.Its funny but human beings have an aversion to dirt,they hate to get their hands dirty.This post is about the dirt haters.
Ruggedman,Mode,Sauce,Sanchez and please do add the names of any other rapper whose names keep cropping up around here have done dirt.Rugged for one was drenched in it,AHH as a forum hurls dirt at those who have earned a right to our comments/criticism by doing dirt.Some posts are simply nonsensical in their critique of this rappers,it affects everybody because it becomes a label that applies to the moderates and free thinkers amongst us."AHH is a collection of underground artistes who hate on mainstream artistes because they havent broken through yet" thats a label!
Think Source,think Fortune,Think Word Up Magazine and remember that you do not build a industry by burying your brands under a ton of dirt,yes the underground is awash with mad talent,yes the mainstream has some quirks that need to be straightened but the answer is not in plunging us back into the dark ages when rap wasnt even played on Nigerian radio.Ruggedman says hes getting dissed here....Sauce....Modenine......who exactly then is the person that deserves unqualified respect and support.
The negativity is getting tired and frankly some of us might have to consider leaving this forum until positivity is the byword around here.....Just a thought.
