I hate to be bothered, when I'm walking down the street
I love, all my people who need a dollar to eat
DJ Eclipse caught it right quick (and said it during my appearance on The Halftime Radio Show): this song is AWKWORD — “I” is a cacophony of contradiction, if you don’t tolerate honesty well… Since I was eight years old, the story goes, I’ve been feeling the plight of those less ‘fortunate’. Call it White Guilt, call it altruism, I say there’s no such thing as 100% of the latter. As a writer, as a Hip Hop/rap artist, you don’t want to admit it, but actions do speak louder than words. And I’ve been acting, since day one. From working at soup kitchens and homeless shelters to sleeping on the streets and writing a 100+-page sociological thesis on homelessness, poverty, inequality and the politics of public space… And even I get bothered when I don’t have the time, or when they get in my face. So, there. My advice: do your personal best, like they’re doing. #NoMattFoley.
