“Okay. I will also delete those few words. Overall, it`s a very important album for me. I rediscovered it every time in many phases of my life. Both advantages and so-called disadvantages. I also looked for myself at the time when everything seemed simpler, although life strongly confirmed it, because it was never easy, it is not and probably will not be anymore. This album is more than a musical breakthrough for me. Besides the fact that he gave me “musical immortality” or chuj knows how to define it, it`s a sign of the time when I had to exist as an idealistic rapper:) How much has changed in those 20 years, I know what I know most. How much I`ve evolved or if you`d rather regress, you know. One thing is certain. This album is an example of how Jeżyckie`s musical authenticity, sincerity and backyard passion drove the rap trend in the living rooms of the time. Something that is basically a norm today raised my doubts at the time. I never meant a mass listener.
This is the time when rap fans listened to rap and created it by authentic creators who built their background on millions of lost albums (!) on cassette. These are the times when they wanted to polish and promote this trend in the mainstream on their own terms, which the so-called music giants profess. This is the time when rap was ridiculed in the mainstream media as well as in the musical environment of the time. The rappers photographed with real fans, as their recognition was reserved only for people on the ground. There wasn`t a random audience, people from social media and YouTube, who didn`t exist at the time. There were no castings rappers and no forgers, at most were simply called Soficaks who didn`t have street credit (and street rappers weren`t clowns back then), but someone was always connecting them in town. There was no popularity ranking and no tracking of numbers (virtual and in bank accounts). They rarely wrote about us in Machina and other music magazines, which, unlike rap, collapsed over time. We helped each other by pressing presses, gates, sewing clothes and organizing concerts. For farmazony, you were ridiculed and explained directly in the muzzle and not in online forums. If you fell in love with the environment, they only pushed you or even excluded you.
No one has bitten their tongue or made their mouths water in the name of measurable business benefits. If it was central, everyone wanted to do romantic rap. Even reward. Not everyone responded, because the memory, although sometimes fleeting, did not allow to forget the moments when no one wanted to help the guys out of the basement. One of the ladies from Voronicza once said to me: “We are going to make you a new Muńek. We are a factory. We won`t take you out of the underpass if you play it for little things. We will come to you when you leave this passage with the guitar. Personally, I respect Muńek and I don`t know at all, after Chuj cited his example, but when I had the shadow of a doubt, the honorable senior put a shadow of acute fog on her and paraphrased a classic. How difficult it was to act independently, to put up with the ignorance and incompetence of journalists, their ignorance of the genre itself, and hundreds of other ridiculous stories when most of our yearbook entered the mainstream, only we know. And although today the “rap” comes out of the fridge at every turn and the rebellion reminds us of the Star Wars series on VHS, I dare say that despite the change of generation, there is still a lot to change. Sometimes I also search for “On the legal?” to find out what I have left of this old and younger Rysiek.
But I think there are still a lot of them. “It was still December 2001. I was devastated by the video for “My rap… ” – this holding of pseudo-handcuffs, these non-exclusive murders heh. It was horrible. At the time, we did not have the possibility of such interference as is now the case with assembly. Director Latkowski came and it was made for three doubles and the end of the clip.
