One thing I love is weird conspiracies that involve our culture. Sure I love conspiracies and myths about other things, but when it involves a pop culture icon, it gets me every time like Tupac’s 7 Day Thoery. This one here is so just compelling enough to me for some reason. Two music icons with a wacky sense of fashion and it comes down to religious undertones. Yea i guess it could just be two rich pop icons that think so much of them selves that they name their album tracks as religious figures and it all just happens to play out. But the other stuff about the 5 years and the K. West sign is compelling enough to make me wonder how the hell did stars alight to make it all come true. I need to know and I almost feel like flying to the Vatican and getting The Pope’s opinion on this. These aren’t made up bible stories told to kids to keep them from fucking chicks before their married. This is like real life rebirth of a musical Christ unfolding right before our eyes. You can also make an argument i think that Lazarus’s grave-clothes probably look like the $500 dollar rags Kanye is putting out in the fashion world. Its a conspiracy i tell ya!
Everyone who’s known me for awhile knows im just key and picking things that’ll go big. It all started in like 7th grade. 2002, 12 year old Ed Lee just trying to make his place in High School. Well being Asian and my penchant for not wanting to buy any form of entertainment, I was good at making bootleg copies of things. CDs, DVDs, If i could get my hands on it, id flip it for money. I was like Red from Shawshank Redemption, I just got people things in
prison High school. Anyways, when I wasn’t selling high profile items like fake rolex’s and bb guns, my bread and butter was mix tapes for 5 bucks a pop. Well one day this kid Bryan asked me to make him a mix tape, gave me a list and when i get home i put it all together but i specifically remember i put a song called “Through The Wire”. Next day Bryan comes up to me and ask “Yo what song was that on track number 13” and i tell him “Thats Kanye West Through the Wire.” Like 2 weeks later Kanye was blowing up and like signed to Rockafella and decided to put together College Dropout. Now he’s the god damn asshole running for presidency in 2020 not making a sense about a god damn thing. Incredible
Basically my point of that story was I discovered kanye and introduced him to the
world South Florida. Same thing with Monster. You think Monster Energy was the conglomerate they are back 9 years ago? definitely not. But in 2008 a year after officially changing to Monster Energy full time i picked up a Monster Energy, gave it a swig and said to myself that that shit was gonna be big. Well fast forward to 2015 after boasting one of the best Monster Can collection, they make Apple stock look like Kodak after digital cameras came out. And Seriously how about monster energy not sponsoring me when i got arguable one of the best Monster Can Collections in all the Americas.
Seriously I could’ve found a way to plug Monster into all of my blogs for you. “Fuck those drones, I wanna chug a Monster and punch a drone in its face” We coulda blown up together but they just never let me on on the fun. Just let it be known for all of you out there, Ed Lee’s seal of approval is worth like a billion dollars in 9 years probably. Monster Energy, Kanye West, I told my buddy Mike Posner was gonna blow up and he did kinda. I mean shit im pretty much single handedly keeping Blackberry afloat right now i think because im just that ride or die type of man with my companies. Brand loyalty beyond your wildest dreams.
The Internet’s a real beautiful thing sometimes when we can mash an eccentric rapper/artist/fashion designer’s rant with one of the most popular comedic sitcoms of all time and create a master piece. Everything about it was perfect. Its almost the exact comedic timing of all the Seinfeld intro and all the laughing tracks fell exactly into place. I’ve watch this clip a billion times now and now i can’t even begin to think this was once on a serious rant of a comedic routine Because it fits in that good. Just A+.
