Daily Inspiration: Z-Ro, "I Hate U"

240p YouTube videos uploaded in 2006 are the new VHS tapes, found footage the new flea markets. The sideways visors and lime green cut-up blouses date “I Hate U,” but not the same way as those flickering megapixels. Weak embed quality quadruples the nostalgia. It's not just the new ABN that's got us feeling that angst: Blue Valentine hangover aside, listening to Angel Haze and staring at smirking Nicki GIFs puts you in a mood, and while they might phrase it differently, the message is still the same: respect yourself, drama is dead. Ro of the Week, we miss you.
