Music Monday

A couple weeks ago I was up late getting ready for bed with Letterman on. I’m not sure if it was a repeat or not, but it was new to me. Jay-Z and Eminem performed together on the roof of the old Ed Sullivan Theater.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

{Warning! They try and “bleep” out the swear words, but don’t always do the best job. And sorry for the annoying ad.}

It might surprise you that I like some rap, but some rap is poetry to me. It’s personal to some artists and let’s you in on a life that often is extremely different from yours and mine. Helps me understand where some people are coming from. Yes, they may swear and rap about taboo subjects, but sometimes the words put together…well…surprising as it sounds, they flow and it’s beautiful to me. Sometimes!

My favorite part in the song above is the hook:

“RENEGADE! Never been afraid to say
what’s on my mind at any given time of day.
Cause I’m a RENEGADE! Never been afraid to talk
about anything (ANYTHING) anything (ANYTHING), RENEGADE!
Never been afraid to say
what’s on my mind at any given time of day
Cause I’m a (RENEGADE) Never been afraid to holler
about anything (anything?) Anything (ANYTHING!)”
