It probably isn’t a popular opinion for this site to say that the newest Avengers movie is a dud. Marvel and comic book fans seem to love this film and yet I couldn’t have been more bored or dumbfounded by the choices that Whedon eventually made. The film centers as all of these films seem to have done on machinations made by Tony Stark. Tony Stark is easily the least interesting of all these characters and there isn’t really a reason anyone in the group should like or respect him. As such the movie fails in large part because of this reliance and the fact that it has an equally uninteresting villain.
There are certain rappers whose legacy is debatable… Raekwon The Chef is not one of them. Rae’s spot in the hip hop mural has been etched in stone since 36 Chambers and his unforgettable verse on “C.R.E.A.M.” After the buzz of Wu-Tang’s debut album, Rza stuck Rae 3rd in the line-up behind Method Man’s “Tical” and Gza’s “Liquid Swords.” In 1995, when it was Raekwon’s turn to release his debut solo album, he unleashed arguably the best Wu-Tang solo album to date (in my opinion), “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.” That shit right there is in the exclusive, penthouse, luxury suite of classic albums. Rae’s been trying to capture that critical acclaim and commercial success ever since. “Fly International Luxurious Art” is Raekwon’s latest offering.
While working the counter at tattoo shops I ran through the same conversation almost all the time. Years later, with Photoshop skills out the ass, I decided to create a visual representation of the monotony of these conversations. For the most part these people were high school seniors or college freshman trying to make permanent remembrances of the stupidest parts of their lives or older women in groups, drunk on wine, who decide to yell if they don’t get what they want.
