I like to get to my theory class early. Like 30 minutes early. I enjoy sitting in the quiet thinking about what I’m going to say. Two of my favorite students show up almost as early. We’ve developed a casual pre-class discussion forum that starts at 7:30 AM. On wednesday I played them both Kayne & Jay-Z’s “Nigga’s in Paris” and Yasiin Bey’s (AKA Mos Def) version “Niggas in Poorest.”
I’m enjoying Young Guru’s attempt to mediate these two arguments. Should we watch the throne or beware the throne?
