Business Instead of Game
Beyond good and evil -- beyond good taste and bad taste, even -- the world is to be redeemed only through the act of aesthetic creation.
And with that I give you something sublime. Or that leaves me speechless, anyway:
I mean, a tribute is a tribute, right? Lyrics like, "Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show/ I laced the track, you locked the flow/ So far from hangin on the block for dough/ Notorious, they got to know that" are universal. Really, everyone should be memorialized with a 7-minute song that Diddy very specifically wrote about one particular person.
We should all be so lucky. Still, some tweaking may be in order at times. At the moment I feel like singing.
Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
