ugs mag – thanks 4 spreadin the word

UGSMAG is an independent hip hop magazine...  Our focus is on indie / underground hip hop from all around the world.

facepaint – confuse it confuse dem

ces n me walk into the kings cafe – lady behind the counter says “what happened to you!?”

ces replies, “i fell”

i fall to the floor laughing – i fell!! into a technicolor puddle? into a rainbow? HA!

she sees we are jokin and says, “is it indian? no, not indian, i mean canada’s original peoples?”

WORD. indigenous. first nations. aboriginal – no! ORIGINAL PEOPLES. i like it. best new PC term i heard.

i reply, “no it’s not first nations, it’s not east indian, it’s our own tradition.”

she continues, “for a celebration?”

we concede, “yes, a celebration.”

this exchange was much nicer than what we usually get from men – “HALLOWEEN!”

really?

i don’t understand. a mask says halloween. but facepaint? to me, facepaint screams kids at a carnival. not halloween.

what do you think?

in my own universe!

the song came on my birthday and i was walking down ces’ street and it just floated into my head and i couldn’t stop singing it… just wait, neither will you… it feels so good.
