linkthink re: hip-hop, reggae, the US, jamaica, and anything else wayne wants to wax on


all i need

either the graf above was a lot easier to parse than i thought, or jordan davis is a mean decoding mofo. or both!

despite jordan's astute analysis, i still think it's interesting that the same bloke who threw up that, er, throw up would reference such a decidedly non-hip-hop world. it's a joke, yes, but a fairly 'inside' joke, or at least so i assumed. given that one has to walk along some train tracks before getting to the under-the-bridge spot where this was painted, one assumes that writers are writing for other writers, not many of whom - though maybe i'm underestimating here - would know ELO, BOC, or ROR at acronymic glance. i guess it's a HISTOE lesson.

go figya.
