KRS-One 2012 Video: AZTECHNICAL
While it may not be essential to state that I am not much of a rap fan, you better believe that I’m on top of my 2012 news and information. I’m certainly way too concerned with historical dates, like the kind that KRS-One uses here, to to help figure out what pieces of history are trying to tell us. If it’s a rap song with lyrical enlightenment, sign me up quick. Also, I’ve always maintained that there is a lot to be said about longevity in the recording business, and KRS-One drops his 20th album this year, a feat that automatically earns my respect.
Most of what I know about 2012 comes from the world’s greatest psychonaut, space ranger Terence McKenna. As the year clicks along it would be nice to introduce some of the Expat audience to a taste of McKenna’s work. During his lifetime McKenna saw discussed to mass audiences visions of our world as being in a state of crisis, and that 2012 would not merely be the end, but that it would be a time that there would be potential for radical shift. As if we are living in a time where we as a civilization will be living out all of recorded history at once, from the Fall of the Romans to the imperialism that was the hallmark of the Reagan era, and so on. The 2012 phenomenon is now an industry responsible for thousands of authors, most of them complete rubbish, it make me wonder what Terence would think about it all. Most likely he would be on television daily intellectually discussing the phenomenon with vigor and authority to espouse some meaning of phrases such as “you may turn into light” and “your soul might lift to higher consciousness, ” as preached in this song.
