Blue Scholars has been in the media lately for hating on Space, but to tell you the truth, EVERYONE’S hating on Futuristic sh*t…Well, kind of.
Grynch released his video ‘My Volvo’ last week, a song that anyone who grew up driving their parent’s car can relate to. Drawing on memories of where the car has been, emotional experiences (“I cried in that car”), and car trouble (the video starts with the engine not turning over)–it’s an instant classic for Sabzi especially because the first car he drove was a Volvo.
Our boy Macklemore took it upon himself to carry on the tradition of local media and review this song for what it really was. Thankfully, he had the courage to read between lines of Grynch’s song, interpret it, and draw conclusions so bold that lesser individuals might even call said conclusions baseless and uncalled for. Is this irresponsible? Nah.
” ‘Come back down to earth’ Grynch seems to be saying ‘and I’ll give you a ride to Ballard High School, where there are no aliens. It’s better here.’”
If anybody has been paying attention to the media in Seattle, they know that it is the duty of those who write reviews (that the whole Town apparently reads) to 1) make assumptions, 2) avoid actually speaking to the artist they’re reviewing, and 3) state their opinion as hard fact regardless of how misleading and divisive it may be. Some may call this careless, foolhardy, or downright unprofessional. Not us. We consider it extremely intelligent and arguably heroic. Kudos to you Macklemore, kudos.
The best part is the asterisk at the bottom which reads, “*Grynch didn’t say any of this, but it makes for a better story.” Indeed!
Mack’s opinionated and subversive response to “Space Hate” is something that we can appreciate. Read his review at BengalYucky.com and check out Grynch’s video below.
