New Hollywood

Of all the new artists of worth, those who will last and will be played into the second half of this century, none wish to be Hollywood, none wish to pursue the path to fraudom. The siren song has lost its luster; something new is coming. The old is passing away, even if it is a slow death.

“I’m just sayin’ I feel the pain of the
Petals fallin’ from Cherry Blossoms
That just fly to the very bottom
To die within every Autumn”

“Storms spiral inside my brain
But I’m still too chill
Tornados that twist the rain
Form a real super cell”

“Like all the money I’m makin’
That shit’s amazin’ and all
But rep yo country and make it
That shit ain’t basic at all
I’m here to fuck up your knowledge
On what shit makes up a star
Cuz I’m a whole constellation
I came to take on you all” EZ Mil

“Create the riddles, portrayed uncivil
Unsafe a little, oh, yes, indeed
It’s plain and simple, I’m far from brittle
Unbreakable, you following?” NF

“And I was chasing the dragon with no medieval invention
I go to sleep and dream my life would be for me if I catch it
I let my demons possess me till I woke up in a wreckage
And realized that I destroyed a whole cathedral of blessings
It’s like my feet were magnetic, the street was steel, we connected
I couldn’t seem to reach the sky no matter how far I’m stretching
And I was beaten to death and screaming for help for a second
Now I put everything I bleed into completing my records
I can’t compete with my past, but I’m still seeking the relics
And I believe with every breath I breathe, the sequel is better
No fear or surrender, I’m clearing the pressure
The tears I remember will never let me forget I was near to the devil
I never claimed to be holy, but I got angels’ protection
I got a barbed wire halo and devil horns I don’t mention
Yeah, the Lord is my savior, but shit, revenge is so tempting
I don’t expect to see heaven if that’s the case, I respect it” Tom MacDonald

I want to write, as millions have before me. And I want to know what it is to be human, as few have before me.
