The rapper goin the hardest these days is Vladimir Putin
Dudes goin HARD on the west
Side note about my last post and the angry incoherent ramblings placed as comments. That person spewed so much negativity my way I decided to turn it into a positive yesterday- My company rewarded three $2000 usd grants to members of the Imagination Rabbit discord. We gave some little gifts to young creative people actually making original things and not just being wannabe’s whining on the internet at a real independent creator like myself. It feels good to help people doing what “creative” haters are too afraid to do.
I was just reading some of Vladimir Putin’s lyrics from his recent mixtape drop- dude is goin HARD- check this shit out bruh…
The game of the West is bloody, dangerous and dirty
He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind
The West is characterized by, as Solzhenitsyn said, "a continuing blindness of superiority"
The US has nothing to offer the world but its dominance
The period of undivided dominance of the West in world affairs is ending
*MIC DROP* OHHHH SHIIIIIIIIT
I’m thinkin a Kanye West/Vladimir Putin collab track is coming up next
The thing creatives in the West don’t get- if you thought you were edgy 5/10/15 years ago and you didn’t adapt to this changing world you are now the status quo- you are now MAINSTREAM- you have become what you think you are “fighting” against.
That’s what happens to most people-
Are you being “cancelled” for your art? For your views? No, you are not because you are the status quo now- No matter your age, you are now OLD.
You can’t avoid your actual age increasing BUT not adapting, not evolving, not changing with the flow of the world- that is how you get OLD.
A 70 year old man in Vladimir Putin is probably edgier then you’ll ever be. A super famous 45 year old artist in Kanye West is edgier then you probably will ever be.
Did you submit and go along with all the “Covid” stuff? If yes, then YOU ARE MAINSTREAM, you are the STATUS QUO. The people that resisted it, questioned it- they are EDGY whether you like it or not.
If you’re covered in tattoo’s and have sex with animals you are MAINSTREAM now.
If you’re a “satanist” with tattooed eyes black you are now as edgy as retired old people that sit around and watch TV all day.
Why? Because you are WITH and not against the power of the West which has up until now dominated the world.
Violence has gone to %1000 in the mainstream media
Porn has gone to %1000 in the mainstream media
Not copulating with absolutely everything at all times is now edgy-
*Torture porn is an acceptable mainstream movie genre that makes millions btw
“Atheism” has gone to %1000 in the mainstream media
Being “religious” is now edgy-
Censorship has gone to %1000 in the mainstream
“Free speech” is now edgy-
Being SUPER SERIOUS has gone to %1000 in the mainstream
Being funny is now edgy- (there’s more “comedians” than ever but most are not funny at all tho)
Being a terrible person has gone to %1000 in the media
Murderers, drug dealers, even child molesters(Allen Ginsberg, Roman Polanski etc) are celebrated in the west- that shit is not edgy- it is MAINSTREAM
Being a good person is now edgy- lying is mainstream, telling the truth is edgy-
Who is the most hated in the mainstream of the West right now? Vladimir Putin and then probably Kanye West eh?
That means they edgy my dudes- the edge refers to the razors edge- its dangerous- it can cut you- it can hurt-
The opposite of edgy is DULL- if you’re a dull creative today that means you can post your work anywhere without fear of it being censored/removed and without fear of you being banned.
Dull creative work is NOT notable- it will all be forgotten in time-
History won’t remember the dull creatives, it will not remember the drones who agreed with the mainstream and created works in its likeness- history will remember the outliers, the rebels, the people who stood against the powers that be and created works representing that-
Most creatives are so AFRAID tho they can’t be anything but DULL- that’s fine but just recognize what you have become.
And if you are SO BOTHERED by this post- ask yourself why?
I’m just some unknown, obscure dude- I don’t have any power or influence in the world- no one even reads this stuff- so why are you so upset when most ALL of the western world agree’s with you?
I’ll tell you the answer- TOTALITARIANISM is now MAINSTREAM. Check the definition if yer gettin it twisted.
Who controls the morality in the United States? Who tells everybody what's right and wrong?
In the 80s/90s it was arguably Evangelical Christians. The Jerry Falwell types. They had a lot of power in politics, and they spent a lot of time lecturing Americans on morality. They told everybody how to live. They said don't smoke pot, don't have premarital sex, go to church, etc. They judged people and a lot of people, myself included, resented them for that. Who is Jerry Falwell to tell me how to live my life?
Artists and musicians rebelled against this. They challenged those in power with their work.
But who controls morality in the United States today? In 2022?
Is it the Evangelical Christians?
Who lectures people on racism, sexism, privilege, xenophobia, homophobia, etc? Who tells people they need to feel guilty for their privilege? For their fragility? Who demonizes people by calling them Nazis and then advocates punching them? Who thinks their shit doesn't stink?
It's not the Evangelical Christians.
"The New Church Ladies" (Jim Goad book) have a lot of power. They're in academia. They're in media. They're high up in the hierarchy at multinational corporations. They're in politics.
And they use their moral superiority as a weapon against their enemies. The employ ad hominem attacks ("He supports so-and-so. Don't listen to him") to discredit and silence people. They leverage their corporate power to cancel people and ruin careers. They employ an "us or them" mob mentality to coerce independent thinkers and conscientious objectors into adopting their views.
They judge people and a lot of people, myself included, resent them for that. Who is Stephen Colbert to tell me how to live my life?
So who are artists and musicians to rebel against in 2022? The ghost of Jerry Falwell? Or these angry, blue-haired "woke" moralists who know what's best for everyone and will stop at NOTHING to evangelize converts?
I will always have a lot of respect for you and your work but have to say I find this stuff pretty disappointing to say the least. Don't really even get how you've ended up here, your work was never about 'edgy' 'shocking' gore or sexual content, or needing to call people 'faggot' or whatever!? :-/ Makes me sad to see you talking like this and supporting these dishonest and manipulative internet meme-propaganda trends
