"There is nothing intrinsically moral about being a believer or a nonbeliever. There are many people of great moral probity and courage who seek meaning outside of formal religious structures, who reject religious language and religious ritual and define themselves as atheists. There are also many religious figures that in the name of one god or another sanctify intolerance, repression and violence."

Chris Hedges

"Reasoning can be mistaken, wrong, misled and sometimes fallacious. But he is liable to correction because reason is the guiding star of his life. But mere faith and blind faith is dangerous: it dulls the brain, and makes a man reactionary."

To me, from a musical aspect, Hip-Hop is going in the direction where it’s damn near 100% on everything besides the music. Like what you look like, the sound of the your name, to what you’re wearing, the brand of clothing, whatever intoxicants you chose to put in your body to everything except what the music sounds like.

So the mask is really a testament to “yo, it’s not about none of that.” Like, you can be any color or whatever, the mask represents everybody. Nothing matters, brand of clothing, none of that matters. It matters how you spit and the beats.

Matter of fact, I’m sick of talking."
