So recently I have been following M.I.A. and her crew. I'm sure you've all heard that she's been working with Baltimore's own Blaqstar and with his pro toge RYE-RYE (if you wanna know more about her Google), but enough about them, I'm stuck on Santogold! She's a new artist who has been doing her thing in the music business for some time now. She has been recognized by Rolling Stone as an "artist to watch" for her quirky beats mixed with reggae, hip hop, and techno and her "bizzare approach to lyrics". Santogold, born Santi White has a degree and all that jazz, but still has this youthful swag about her--talk about a role model. Her new single Creator/Les Artistes is popular with music heads everywhere and is perfect for those indie-dont-give-a-damn-hipsters who just love to make "ART". She has toured with M.I.A and even opened for Bjork and has still maintained her own unique sound (she is DIFFERENT than M.I.A)! Her debut album, "I Believe In Santogold" is sure to be hot shit. This Brooklyn girl is on the rise, and we mos def. love her over here.
I would just like to say that I am not deep enough and can clearly not solve the problems facing today's world because I do not understand Kanye's hot ass video, but all you have to do is READ THE LYRICS. I have been reading blog after blog, comment after comment, getting the sweet low down on the deepest shit since Jesus wrote the Bible. Take this comment for example, that I read off of popwatch blog on EW.com:
People, people, people! The song is in fact about the paparazzi catching Kanye in the act of cheating...DUH DUH DUH...the whole point is there is no reason for him to be murdered! Is he speaking out against domestic violence, has Kanye become an activist? Maybe he should have killed a paparazzi in the trunk, I could have accepted that. . I'm not anti-Ye, I'm just pro-makingsense.
P.S...i don't think Kanye's that damn deep either he's like a simile not a metaphor, and that is the beauty we get from his music, his ability to stylistically state the obvious with a touch of wit and humor....just READ THE LYRICS
