1520 Sedgwick Avenue: April 7th, 2008 Monday, April 7, 2008

Posted by Andy Hutchins in 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, Rockabye.

Saw this Friday night and said, “Jay’s too cool.”

And I still think the same.

That was pretty fucking hilarious. He’s the tits.

One of my prevailing theories on hip-hop is that because of the mental acuity required in putting together good lines, it attracts a good number of really smart, witty people: Will Smith, no slouch back in the day, reputedly had an 800 on his SAT Verbal, and I’d guess people like Jay, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, the Clipse, OutKast, Lil Wayne, the Wu, Kanye, Common, and other high-brow or “bougie” acts would notch similar marks.

And then the other 80% of hip-hop is Soulja Boy and an army of Young Jeezy/Rick Ross/T.I. clones who are really just writing about their lives and happen to have other hooks in the game.
