Movemeants Deconstructed

I want to address something before I get into this post. Last week was the kickoff of the Cali Famous Tour with Hawdwerk & Jansport J, Treklife, J Bizness, & Gio Basicali. Dae One, Noni Spitz, Poetik Force, The God Sincere were also in the building. Guess how many times Jansport plugged the Movemeants record that came out the very night before?

ZERO

Didn’t mention it once…not even when they closed their set – which says a lot about his character. Movemeants is a record that everyone & Dart Adams is (rightfully) heaping praise on & the day after it releases he doesn’t try to grab some extra shine for himself.

In a hyper self-promotional world, that’s hella refereshing. I just wanted to get that out. Also, the grilled artichoke on the $5 late night menu¬†@ Commonwealth was mad flavor .

So, Jansport stated in some pre-release vids, that he wanted to trigger an emotional response with this record. I decided to monitor my own responses, while listening to the record, which I present in it’s unedited form below.

Relaxed, upbeat, head nodding, nervous back to calm, head nodding, anticipating, reflective, eyes closed, snapped back into reality, ready to grind/hustle, ready to take rivals outta the game, cruising through a dark alley affter midnight with two middle fingers up, nostalgic for psychadelics, back on my fly shit in Eastern Europe,upbeat, wanna play Atari Pole Position (pause), confused, neck snapping, inquisitive, rejuvinated, hot under the collar, relaxed, feeling like the man, smooth, romantic, on my grown man shit, reminsicing, thinking about a sample on a Beatnuts album, giving the homey imaginary dap, dusting off shoulders, favorite song so far, relaxed, another favorite song, wondering how soon ‘Sport will have his Kanye momement, wondering what pre The Truth ‘ye sounded like, wondering how much my copy of HPM is gonna fetch on ebay when Jansport finally makes good on his promise & sells out, neck snapping, coming straight outta calcutta with my stratocaster,thnking of the eels video floating in a helium balloon, back down to a head nod, recognizing the guitar riff…
