Tricky Spoken Word Piece & Interview -AllSaints Basement Sessions Special Presentation

27 Mar

This Shakespearean style soliloquy/spoken word piece is one of the many reasons why I love Tricky.
He is so unique.
There is no one like him.
His delivery is raw and exploding with confidence and wisdom.

He is a poet and an artist.

Copied & Pasted from AllSaintsShop youtube channel…

“From his early collaborations with ‘Blue Lines’ era Massive Attack through his own highly influential recordings such as Maxinquaye, Tricky is a man who has done more to expand the definition and artistic aspirations of Hip Hop than almost any of his peers.

The otherworldly sprechgesang delivery stands in stark contrast to the braggadocio style of most other rap artists.

AllSaints Basement Sessions and GQ talk to the Bristolian icon about coming up with The Wild Bunch, becoming so famous so quickly, the artistic process and his exciting upcoming collaboration with Massive Attack.

The Prostitution of Time in Tricky’s Song Contradictive…

15 Mar

“….Reflect on your life
Time isn’t real
How much time can you kill?….”

-TRICKY

My respect and love for Tricky and his music only grows with time.
He is an artist that does not truly exist in any category.

It can be said that he is a “trip hop artist” but it can also be argued that he is a hip hop artist because he raps.
He is simply an artist in the truest sense of the word.

To me, he doesn’t fit in any box because Tricky is just too fluid.

His liquid, mercurial lyrical style flows like water.

And no one has a voice like his…love his voice!

This song speaks of time being an illusion.
Contradictive is esoteric and existential at the same time.
Its beauty is that it is timeless- just like Tricky’s music
.


I am always excited to hear Tricky’s music- vintage or new.

I would LOVE to see Tricky in concert and to meet him in person.
 
What kind of questions can one ask Tricky?

The answer is the most creative ones you can think of {e.g. Is life an illusion? Is death a new beginning? Is time an illusion?}.

*Sigh…one can at least dream…

Love you Tricky!!!

“Born in the ghetto it’s hard to survive
Some have achieved and many brothers tried
But I realized which life to choose
I wanna make money so I gotta pay dues
But there’s no rules and you only have one chance
If ya fuck up kid you face the circumstance

At night I use to scream and shout
Livin’ in the ghetto trying to get the hell out
So I would try as I watch my friends die
But all I could do was sit back and cry
These are feelings I’m expressing through my rhymes
I been through hard times so many problems on my mind
I wasn’t living rich and I also wasn’t poor
I try to appreciate but I deserve more…”
