For The Lovers



Part of me is scared to post this. The only time you can talk about love in Hip Hop is when you’re talking about love making(and you damn sure don’t call it that). I’m probably gonna get made fun of for this one, and hopefully I won’t lose too many readers…but hell, today’s a special (albeit a “hallmark-created”) day. Plus next week I got some good Hip Hop in store for ya’ll. Say what you want about Valentine’s Day, but it is the day in which people show the most love. It may be more tailored towards couples, but anyone can get into it and express their feelings for those they care about, if not just sit back and reflect on the love in their lives.

I see love as coming in four categories. There’s the type of love you throw around all the time. People say they love restaurants, movies, and a bunch of other shit that they enjoy, but don’t really care all that much about. They could go on without this type of love. Then there’s the type of love you feel for people you know well and your distant family members. You care about them, you want them to be happy, you’d miss them if they were gone, but you probably wouldn’t sacrifice too much for these people. The third type of love is the kind you feel about your closest friends and immediate family (well…some) members. You know you’ll always be there for them and they can come to you for anything. The macho way I determine this kind of love is asking myself, “Would I take a bullet for them?” There are only a handful of people on this Earth I love like that.

The last type of love is hard to describe. You all know which type I’m talking about, but not all of you necessarily know how it feels. It’s the kind of love portrayed in movies and novels that seems so common. We’ve all seen plenty of depictions, heard many different definitions, and have probably seen it first hand ourselves. But we can never really comprehend it until we experience it.

So that’s my breakdown on love. Unfortunately, some people never experience any of those kinds of love. If everybody did experience them, the world wouldn’t be in so much trouble today. Maybe music can help. Music has been used as a tool to spread love (Bob Marley), reverse hate (Sam Cooke), and rebel against the system (Public Enemy). So hopefully, ya’ll can throw my mix on (they’re improving…I’m telling ya) by yourself, with your significant lover, or with a friend and feel the love. Then spread it.

    hey schorsh,

    I was thinking about this, is there any way we can SUBSCRIBE to your blog? and maybe get some sort of email update? Not that I don’t love visiting…just a thought.

    also, digging the love tunes. I also especially like the interludes of movies! I am a big movie freak-and it’s exciting to recognize famous lines within great jamz.

    as always, keep it up!
