listen to this
10 seconds til the end
he really meant it man
imagine having that kinda ear
well i mean many people do, i envy them
envy? praise, maybe
he's the King of Swag
i am a peasant worshipping at his feet
at this point he'd already gone deep into his shit
man i seriously think if he stayed alive just a biiiiit longer
he wouldda had a real, real impact on how music is heard
like he would rival any fucking white dude in europe
maybe it's just because we have more access to their brains
but this is like, the prologue
the prepared epitaph
and then poof, just like that,
i'm very appreciative of the fact that his legend lives on.
i mean when you think about the jazz greats
like the real OG jazz greats, like
when you feel it real deep in there
into your soul
he's on a lover's like top 5, at least
the way that he can maneuver, kinda like
like a warm dry
previously damp spring-
summer night, weaving through the
left and right and up and down
no holes in that pocket
all the great ones die too soon.
perhaps it's a chunk of why they're great.
but longevity is something you cannot fake.
