There are questions that come up in regular old everyday conversation that make you think. And I’m not exactly talking about spiritual meaning of life stuff or anything. But just things I can’t decide on, I keep coming back to them. Sometime over and over again for years. Because I can be so indecisive these questions absolutely torture me.
Who would I put on Mount Rapmore?
Four great leaders of the rap world.
Sure, it starts out all easy. Obviously we’re starting with 2pac. And Biggie. And I don’t care if you don’t like them, or if you think they are overhyped because they died at the height of their fame or whatever. They are rad and they’re on the mountain.
And now is when things get tricky. There are only two spots left. TWO! And the pressure begins to mount. I always want to put Eminem on there – even though it makes you all roll your eyes. I love him, ok? And I’m not even going to waste my time defending how sick he is when he freestyles or anything. Eminem gets the third spot. Deal with it.
So one there is only one spot left and this fun has now turned impossible.
And you think it would help to ask people’s opinion. But it DOES NOT HELP AT ALL. Everyone always gets all bitchy and some dumbass always wants to put Shaquille O’neal or someone ridiculous on the mountain.
And don’t even try to get me started on replacing each president with a corresponding rapper. Who would be Lincoln? Washington? Roosevelt? Jefferson?
Where do we go from here?
Jay-z, Bizzy Bone, Snoop, Easy-E, Jam Master J, Nas, KRS-One, damn it! why can’t I morph a whole group into one face? I love the Beastie Boys, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Run-DMC, Wu-Tang, NWA….
…..and I give up. You win this round. Until next time, Mt. Rapmore.
