One way to deal with things is to tattoo treats onto your face. Another, better way is to talk it out! Waka works over his traumatic winter on this new track from a soon-coming mixtape. People are telling him where to go, bitches are on him, his partner died, cops are foraging in his house but he needs the loudest kush. Second session: He never knew his father, feels pressure to change, wants to take his friends out the hood but his blood is heavy with where he’s from that and he’s determined to never change. It’s true that no matter what our labors we hassle ourselves. This can become gruesome, but is also something we have to learn on our own terms how to accept. The rap game is stressful, but if you want to OHH OHHHH along with this you can replace Waka’s experience with your own: This plum tort has me stressed, this physics problem set, this line at the juice store, not having enough twitter followers. Responsible HIV testing is stressful, iPhones are stressful, new jobs, horoscopes, national politics, progress. Straight-faced, for a superb treatise on mental health, listen to Killer Mike and Jesse Thorn in conversation about the particular anxieties of the generation that came up in the South during and after crack.
