    we create in that other world and pull it down to earth. that's the process. this, i think, is the ultimate explanation for the phenomenon you're describing.

    we have the notion of liquid at the very heart of rap lexicon: 'flow'

    it's expressed in the constant references to, for example, Hennessy and drank*

    now it's at it's ubiquitous in rap and drill (though the ostensible meanings in those two contexts are starkly different).

    what does water mean: baptism, blood, childbirth, etc.

    why are those connotations so crucial to us in the last two years. why is culture yearning for them?

    water and liquid more generally is a huge symbol, contains multitudes, but partly
    time, as noted earlier is a fluid medium, causation is fluid (waves, drips, currents, trickles, streams), emotion is pictured as sea (the zodiac water signs are the emotional ones)

    funnily enough aquarius (as in, age of) is an air sign.
