Took a second, guys. Forgot my password.
I won't try to defend or repeal any opinions of me. What's the fun in that? I'd much rather you have interpretations of your own. In this post I'll simply state facts. I've had quite a few magazines and websites ask me about the events that caused my moves in the recent past and I never once said yes to an interview or offered up my relationship with any of my colleagues for publicity. My story, however, is mine to tell and I'll do so when I feel comfortable. The upcoming LP is written about these events, by large, so my decision to include this private information serves the concept. Considering this is all years behind me, I didn't see revealing this information to others as anything but providing historical context. Even so, my life is my work and vice versa, and I find it odd that anyone could be capable of cherrypicking what, of an artist's personal life, they personally deem acceptable to use as a jumping-off point. It seems irrational to ask someone who makes art to remove themselves from the presentation of it, in any regard. Fine, if you like ambiguity in your artists, though that might be a personal taste. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised, most of us here worship people like DOOM and Madlib.
I hope that clears up some confusion, and I hope some of you appreciate my response. If not, that's alright as well. Either way, I don't think it's a good idea for me to respond further. I just figured I owed explanation to a message board that I still feel indebted to.
P.S. The record industry is dead. No one will be making money off "exploiting" personal turmoil.
