I had just finished writing The Tao of Pimpin' and decided to start working on an album for a label I wanted to work with. So I went to Joseba's house and said "help!" and he said "ok" and I recorded this at his studio. Then, I didn't release it. Last night, I realized that the only way people would understand the creative direction I'm headed in is if they heard the context. Because not too many people have read the book. And hearing a song is easier than reading a book.
So to catch people up to where I'm at in my head in order to prevent
their discomfort when I have to respond "go masturbate, you harmless
inchworm" to their requests that I say or do something other than what
I'm saying or doing for no other reason than to appease their
insecurities, I present to the world PEDICABO MUNDI! It's Latin for
"fuck the world."
The concept of this track is a play on Aguas de Marco. A lyric heavy
Brazilian Portuguese song that I learned in order to increase my
Portuguese vocabulary. Matt, the guy who owns the label I spoke about
earlier, suggested that my version of Aguas de Marco would sound
something like this. I thought that was funny, but I wasn't going to do
it...but I couldn't help myself. Suggestion is a powerful force. And
really, the suggestion just helped provide a framework for my inevitable
"Fuck Everything" themed art project.
