RT&J really is the new PB&J. Tastes great and good for you, too. The song’s not saying much other than how murderous they are (on the mic, of course), but the video’s an unsubtle critique of the rigged justice system. Not breaking much new ground but Killer Mike and El-P make it all seem fresh and exciting. National treasures, I’m telling you.
Jeez, who knew he was still alive? Well, he’s not anymore. It’s safe to say the world would be a much different place without the pioneering work of Dr. Hoffman. We certainly wouldn’t have as much good music, that’s for sure…
He then took LSD hundreds of times, but regarded it as a powerful and potentially dangerous psychotropic drug that demanded respect. More important to him than the pleasures of the psychedelic experience was the drug’s value as a revelatory aid for contemplating and understanding what he saw as humanity’s oneness with nature. That perception, of union, which came to Dr. Hofmann as almost a religious epiphany while still a child, directed much of his personal and professional life.
