Review Summary: We was already molded into people's minds as mulignanes
Now we more fucked up with a mayor named Giuliani
You can try to blind me, analyze but can't define me
My mind's divine, heavily entwined with Gandhi's
Those familiar with rap’s golden era are often vexed by how modern-mainstream rap has become “dumbed-down”, which is a term meaning that artists hold back complex ideas to make their music more readily accessible to casual listeners, who far outnumber B-boys. It’s been said a million times, but the obvious truth is Hip Hop needed to become dumbed-down to become commercially viable. The handful of artists who were able to avoid this formula were all coincidentally killed. Similar to the concept of “dumbing-down” music to become commercially viable is the idea that a global crime syndicate has used the protections of the freest society in world history to easily infiltrate its government. It’s simply too much for your average listener to handle, yet it’s the truth. Tragically, the truth usually isn’t simple, pretty or popular and simple-pretty-popular topics are not-so-coincidentally all you get in mainstream rap today. If there is tragedy in society, a SIMPLE solution is always offered in modern rap. Gun violence = remove guns. Racism = blame whitey, elect black president. Poverty = steal from greedy rich people. Yet people don’t want to appear simpleminded, so you have artists like Kanye West trying to window dress frivolous issues such as his own arrogance as complex issues that require deep introspection. It’s just simpler to sell these messages to more people.Doe or Die existed in the era BEFORE rap became dumbed-down nonsense. The reason AZ was never killed like Tupac is because his music is so technical that it is hard for your average listener to enjoy and thus never represented a threat to the global crime syndicate that has now become the establishment.
The point of this longwinded introduction was to prepare you to open your mind to the song “We Can’t Win”. Yes, this song is about the Illuminati, and when you say “Illuminati” the next word that pops into your head is “conspiracy theory”. Why? Because you have been biologically programmed to make this association, using psychology that is over two centuries old. It’s quite simple, if you tell someone “DON’T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT”, what image pops into their head? An elephant, of course. You simply, yet covertly, turned a negative association into a positive one. So by saying the word “illuminati” you are latently saying “DON’T THINK OF CONSPIRACY THEORIES”, which of course causes people to think of some kind of video they saw on Fox about the moon landing being a hoax.
Walla the establishment wins, and they have had the population checkmated by controlling with this kind of suggestive thinking and also by controlling what you watch since before most of you were even born. So where do you go from here? You take the red or the blue pill. You face reality or you shove your head up your ass and go back to living in fantasy land. What you gain from living in reality is self satisfaction, which I can guarantee without a shadow of a doubt that no one living in fantasy land has ever experienced. If you have ever wondered why people are generally so defensive, this is the answer: They have everything that is valued by others in fantasy land yet something is still missing… and that something is their own natural humanity, which was a necessary consequence of entering fantasy world and turning a blind eye to the suffering of the real world. You see sympathy is a natural facility in humans that was favorable for their evolution because surviving in tribes is how humans have managed to continue their existence. The song “Rather Unique” is a tribute to people living in reality. If you live in reality you are necessarily unique, and more often than not you will be looked down upon as eccentric at best and crazy at worst. Yet if you actually were one of the people who decided to think and learn for yourself, you will find a number of historical figures who were rather unique, many of whom are mentioned in this song, such as Mahatma Gandhi. True greatness doesn’t come from being a sheep and following the herd, it comes from going your own way and being a leader. Listen closely to this album and you will get it.
