I Know I Have Been Away...

Sorry guys. To the small contingency who still come to this blog periodically or subscribe on RSS, I truly apologize. I've been having some rough patches through my PhD research. While I am getting promising results now, it may be too little too late. There is a strong chance I will fail, and this has lead me to some severe depression, anxiety and overall bad vibes. The last week has been a bit of an eye opener for me in the sense that I don't care anymore. As bad as that sounds, it's actually good. One of my best friends put it into perspective for me and with the support of my family and friends, I know I'll be fine. Maybe I won't have the opportunities that I wanted...or achieve any of my dreams, but being a man of faith I know I have a bigger purpose that isn't clear to me yet. While those I work around me tell me I'll get my PhD regardless of how well things are simply because I've been putting in the work and I understand the theory to a pretty detailed level. Now with respect to the results, it's all about spinning it in the right way but now I just don't care. I'm just going to continue to work and hope for the best.

What does that mean for this blog? Well I'll continue to post albums/mixtapes that drop. There are some amazing projects lined up and a few that have already doubt that have definitely surprised me (Wale...you killed it my man). But when I get a chance, I'll do a few posts consisting of multiple drops. I started writing raps and poems and those are posted on my man's blog (www.williamchaucer.com) so go check em out. He's in a busy funk as well and in the process of remodelling the blog but I know he's passionate about it so go check it out. In the meantime, enjoy these few drops and I'll try to touch back ASAP.

Run The Jewels - Close Your Eyes ft. Zack De La Rocha (Video)

When Run The Jewels sent me this track, I knew we had the opportunity to create a film that means something. I felt a sense of responsibility to do just that. We had to exploit the lyrics and aggression and emotion of the track, and translate that into a film that would ignite a valuable and productive conversation about racially motivated violence in this country. It's provocative, and we all knew this, so we were tasked with making something that expressed the intensity of senseless violence without eclipsing our humanity. For me, it was important to write a story that didn’t paint a simplistic portrait of the characters of the Cop and Kid. They're not stereotypes. They're people - complex, real people and, as such, the power had to shift between them at certain points throughout the story. The film begins and it feels like they have been fighting for days, they’re exhausted, not a single punch is thrown, their violence is communicated through clumsy, raw emotion. They've already fought their ways past their judgements and learned hatred toward one another. Our goal was to highlight the futility of the violence, not celebrate it.
I am really proud of where we ended up, and I am very thankful that our actors Shea Whigham and Keith Stanfield committed to these characters 100%. They breathed complex life into two people who are usually portrayed in simplistic ways - as archetypes. I can tell you it was an emotional shoot day. It is tough to re-create moments that are so fresh and prevalent in our world today. It affected all of us in deep ways. But I believe that it is important that the way we feel when we see these events in real life has an effect on us. That we resonate with what we know to be right and we don't numb ourselves out so those feelings can simply be swept away, we must confront them and take some action, however small, or we’ll be stuck in the same cycle of violence and hate.
