"The all consuming, everlasting feeling of a broken heart. Is there anything worse? The emptiness. The loneliness. The hands-on demonstration that defines 'gut wrenching.' Naturally, I started by fighting back. I cried. Multiple times. I missed everything about her. I wanted it to 'go back to the way it use to be.' I could hardly sleep. My head had taken over. Scouring scenarios and saying 'If I had only done this...' or 'if she had only done that...' It was no use. I was holding onto something that no longer existed. I had to let go.This RetroHash is a really dope project and has some really unique viewpoints!!! Peep the story up top!!!
Love may be the only thing that can transform us. It's important to allow yourself to feel the pain that comes with it. It hurts. So much.

"The death of music is similar to the death of visual art. The online, numb, browsing experience has (naturally) started to effect the current state of art. We’ve become a Tumblr’d culture, over Google'd, educated and bored in 4 seconds or shorter. I made a non-music video for Shad’s “Progress”. It’s a website. It’s a comment on the state of art and also maybe the only video that could attach to such an intensely accurate and poignant song for our generation. It is like the movie credits to now. Tumblr on."

"I often wonder what comes first the chicken or the egg... Does radio simply play what the general public likes or does the radio bang us over the head again and again and again with the music until we start to like it.

Well$ Week continues with the Charlotte emcee releasing a new video for "Black Swan." Over Shlohmo's remix of Jermih's "F*ck You All The Time," Well$ takes it to Foxy Gentlemen's Club in Brooklyn to share a story of a young stripper.
"It's about looking at things in a different way. People tend to look at a situation like a girl stripping and immediately assume it's her father's fault. It's not always what it seems, life's not always what it seems. We had the concept prior to me hearing the beat. And then when I heard the beat, I just started freestyling to it and the message started coming out. It's a cool oxymoron, because the chorus says 'f-ck you all the time' and I'm trying to convey a message that's not conducive to that part." [Billboard]
