    Default Millenials.

    I quite rate them. They're so cluely and career minded. The only thing i would critisze them for is that they dont have souls. A good way to appreciate the difference between millenials and my lot is look at wiley, born same year as me, and then compare how hes run his career to dizzee or even a jme.

    but they are so good at simulation and pastiche. its their superpower i would say. i know i keep banging on about this.

    I feel like JME is as much of a character as Wiley, albeit less haphazard.

    I said a soul. Not soul as a quality.

    I dunno what you mean lol

    But I sort of get what you're saying

    People are savvy these days.

    I mean public image is something EVERYBODY understands now, due to social media.

    Hair was a disgrace. Clothes were a disgrace. No visual awareness or awareness of self presentation.

    But JME is superficial, Wiley says and does things that engage you emotionally, in a subtle, genuine way.

    the concept of selling out doesn't exist for millennials, or if it does then it doesn't matter to them. probably to do with growing up in the social media age where shamelessly promoting yourself is a natural thing to do that no one looks down on. might also tie in to the notion that they have much fewer paths to success compared to previous generations and therefore accept the fact that they have to sell their souls to some degree to get ahead.

    I first became aware of their separateness in 2006 when I noticed I was surrounded by people who cared about clothes more than music and that these people were all conspicuously younger and better looking than me.
