We was talking about the twinning of lil Wayne and kartel the other day. There's something really deep there I think. As if it was the same daimon singing through both of them. Some deeply ambiguous spirit of the age.
Possession. The spirit of the age. The hermaphroditic unconscious. Fatally ambiguous.. sadmanbarty's Avatar sadmanbarty sadmanbarty is offline
A jamaica devoid of humanity. devoid of god.
a freak of nature. bleached skin, tattooed eyeballs, an impish wine. a jinn.
the infantilised future.
an androgynous clone vessel of the new world order.

Tommy Lee Sparta
There's a future that london's been hiding from.
it can be seen in the pitchfork androgyny of young thug. in the boo hoo minstrel smile of quavo. in the bleach of kartel's skin. in lil wayne's skateboard.
it is an autotune future. a post-gender future. a post-human future.
it is abstract and abstracted. dissociative. it rejects concrete. it rejects weight. it is the cold glare of an iphone screen in a dark bedroom. it is viscous. it is spastic.
london could not entertain this future as presented by atlanta. it couldn't entertain this future when presented by africa. it couldn't entertain this future when presented by jamaica. until now perhaps.
tommy lee is this future. he's absorbed young thug. he's absorbed cloud rap. he's absorbed wayne and kartel and alkaline. and yet... there is a humanity there. there is aggression and mania. yearning. ego. drive.
tommy lee is the human future. whether london embraces him or not is yet to be seen.
whatever future is awaiting london, one thing is for sure.
it'll be glorious.
