Chris Hedges is one of the most thought provoking socio-political American writers in modern times. His social criticisms are what I think are missing in church sermons. His father was a minister, and it’s obvious his father’s delivery has had an effect, let alone the impact of his higher moral compass.
In this keynote speech delivered this past March in Vancouver, British Columbia, after an event titled “After Trump and Pussy Cats”, Hedges predicts the outcome of the Trump presidency, and the continued decay of American society as a result of the hollowed-out core of American democracy.
Traveled to Erie, PA Friday night with my homie Noetik. This was the second show I’ve done with Jon Box who is a super cool promoter who used to live out in Cali til he relocated to the 5th largest city in Pennsylvania and basically took over the hip hop scene there. The scene definitely keeps up with the times, so a lot of trap music , yet I definitely dug how folks rolled onto the floor when I grabbed the mic. It’s also a good experience to see and hear the reactions of an audience that might not always hear a style oriented to traditional hip hop. The one major downside to the show was the fact that I was under the weather and my lungs felt like they were performing at 70% capacity.
Best part of the night was the performance from a stylish dope band called Muziquarium. See video below and be sure to check out my instagram page for more.
Side note: I drank a few Labatt Blue’s on tap. That was the probably the first time in about a decade. Also noticed some other “special” or “premium” light beer from the brewery that’s not the regular light, and nothing I’ve ever seen in southwestern Pennsylvania. Didn’t try it though.
