It’s therapy for my mind while I light the bong, shit hurts but I feel like life goes on”. That’s a quote from Guilty Simpson’s track “a man’s world”, produced by the late, great J Dilla. It’s a featured track on this latest episode of “Recycled Funk”. Guilty Simpson is referring to his father when he says that line. I’m using it as a reference for music, specifically the funky stuff…in light of what’s going on in the headlines these days. The world really does seem to be on some sort of downward spiral. Who knows where the bottom is. It’s a scary thought. But if there’s one thing…make that two things, that people have in this world, this lifetime, that we can all agree, makes for good therapy, and brings people together in a positive environment…It’s weed, aka Mary Jane, and good funky music! Music in general for that matter. So I’m happy to share with you, this therapy, that I hope will sooth your mind, and put you in a relaxed feel good state of mind. Lord knows we need it!
