Interesting Quote:

"Good art does this very thing: it focuses on the small, obscure and ignored, and shows us its worth. Praising sex, drugs, and cash is bad art in the same way that poems about puppies and pictures of horses are bad art � no one needs to remind us that sex is fun or that puppies are cute. Bad art is essentially just giving us back to ourselves, allowing us to turn further inward and away from the world outside. Taking the sexual metaphor a bit farther (perhaps too far), maybe bad art is really just a way of pleasuring ourselves � making rap that reaches no further than our basic impulses is really just a form of musical masturbation." -- On Hip-Hop and Model Dinosaurs, Felix Tallon
