MAX B got shine while he was still a freeman, but no one woulda predicted how large his presence would loom over a generation of rappers who continue boogie boardin all over his "thugged-out singin JODECI in the shower" wave. I'm workin on a diorama for my 7th grade civics class right now and I'm using MAX'S canonization as an example of democracy doin its thang. The people spoke on this one, don't wanna see no eggheads tryin to take credit for the popular voice reaching critical mass! Before he was upstate punchin out license plates and stackin reblogs from '90s baby Tumblr users, MAX was considered a quality practitioner of post-DIPSET aesthetics, but it was more like, "Man I miss DIPSET, MAX B still out there and he's pretty 'wavy' i guess (lol), but man NYC is so dead haha #papoosejoke #wavynotasgoodasbaaalllin" Worse than the ex post facto shinejobs is the lamebrain NYC stans who didn't even notice a moment was happening when it was right under they nose. BIG STAR of rap melodics 4 real.
Reason #5039 that normcore is RACIST: it don't even include the #Urban aesthetics laid out by TEDDY RILEY & co! Hillary Clinton might be the next US Prez, and she still rockin pantsuits made from material repossessed by the government in the great COLOR ME BADD Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings of '94. Whateva happened to intellectual property, B?? Me and Lars Ulrich been talkin about this issue whenever I go over to his place for some nude swimming in his Endless Pool. Lars had a good point: if NORMCORE is about NORMALCY but only includes WHITE PPL, it must rest on the presupposition that WHITE PPL = NORMAL, but doesn't that imply NOT WHITE PPL are NOT NORMAL? and isn't that RACIST? I don't fully agree with Lars's views, but he makes some good points and he has a beautiful body for a 76 year old punk rock 'n' roller ;)
