Billy Woods - Hiding Thoughts

Rap Thought Podcast

“Life is just 2 quarters in the machine... but either you have it or you don’t, that’s the thing.” There are few options to when you don’t have it, one being fake it till you make it, or perhaps retreat to one of many “Hiding Places”, which is the 2019 album covered in this weeks Rap Thought Pod. Brandon and Matt dive into each track and discuss the different places that Billy Woods discusses, as well as the different elements he draws to our attention. Life has its challenges, and sometimes we have to retreat to regain our composure. Make no mistake, the complexity of this album is nothing to be deciphered without time and mistakes, but even if one earns “steak knives” in second place for effort, that beats a “bigfakelaugh” any day from those that threw in the towel. Check this and more this week.Check out more here!Apple PodcastSpotifyInstagramTwitter______________________________________________________Music by: BlueysportInstagram: blueysport
