For some bizarre reason, I find a sick pleasure in making fun of Cage’s physical degeneration into the male version of Kate Moss in flannel. I also take a fucking huge perverse pleasure (yes, it turns me on sexually) to see the legions of salty fat wiggers heads completely explode as their messiah turns into a frail (possibly gayer) version of Pete Wentz.
Yes, I fucking *hate* all of those 4XL faded black Ecko hoody wearing overweight & angry “hip hoppers” that have all but ruined the live hip hop show experience for me. Those corny self-conscious dickheads stand shoulder to shoulder in a quasi-tough guy stance eye fucking each other for approval while nodding like methadone addicts to Vinny Paz rhyming about “dragging a faggot off the third rung of Persiphius’ ladder”. They have single handedly made a joke of the genre I love. But whatever.. let me get back to talking about Cage.
So I’m not going to talk down to you. You know this dude’s history. You know his catalog. Movies For The Blind was a FUCKING CLASSIC. It might have taken a few years to absorb into my grey matter, but now.. when I listen to that shit it takes me back to a time when I enjoyed listening to rap. When I enjoyed going to rap shows. Before every cocksucker with Windows and a mic jack thought that they could put a CD out.
Listen.. If you’re name isn’t Cage; you’re not “better than most these cats out there” and stop yourself if you drop shit like, “If they can make it why can’t you..” right right? They shouldn’t have made it either. And YOU definitely shouldn’t.
Here’s a tip. There’s no money in making rap music anymore. If you do it, accept it as a hobby. No one checks for MCs from the east coast except for dudes from the east coast. You’re career is over before it’s started. Don’t start it. Learn to play guitar. Better yet, save the money you were going to spend on that Guitar and learn a trade. Yeah, it’s more work.. but WTF are you some sort of pussy? I can record a better rap record than you tomorrow. I won’t, because I respect the art. Give it up.
COT DAMN I’M OFF TOPIC..
Aight back to Cage. I’ll say this right now, a successful musical talent is able to reinvent multiple times over the course of their careers. The Beastie Boys are a prime example of this. As is Green Day. As is Metallica. The list goes on… (but it’s a short list). Cage has this ability. I promise you, 20 years from now, this is a dude that will be “rediscovered” by our kids. This dude’s career is vast.
Some Stats? Ok: Born on a german military base. Drug addicted. Tried killing himself. Fondle ‘Em signee. Eminem Beef. Weathermen formed. Eastern Conference signee. Movies For The Blind. Smut Peddlers. Nighthawks (Fail). Esoteric Beef. Weight loss/ Hair growth/ Flannel purchase. Shia LeBouf movie (?). Def Jux. Hellz Winter. Depart From Me.
Cage is one of my favorites. And whether you like him now or not.. he’s clearly got some identity issues. I think all of that just adds to his allure as an artist. I’ll therefore state on record I think he’s the real deal. Word to emo /drug rap.
