September 2, 1988
Today, dad and I had SO MUCH FUN!! We went to the park and played ball. He came to watch my play at school. Took me fishing for the first time. Taught me how to shave. He loves me with all of his heart. And I love him. A bond that will never be broken. I LOVE YOU DADDY!!!

Things with dad just arent what they used to be. He's just not the same. All he does is tell me what to do now. He used to go out and do things with me but not anymore. Well...I can't really say that. We went out and played ball, but he's not as good as he used to be. I ran his ass. He tried tho. He got kind of pissed afterwards. Almost jealous. I don't know. Hopefully things will get better.

Well, it's been 5 years since I heard anything from dad. He called a couple times but nothing i'd really consider "quality time". When I do hear from him all it is is, "did you do your homework!?", "DONT DO THAT!", "NO stupid! THAT's NOT RIGHT!". Why is he being like this? He doesnt even pay child support anymore. I dont even consider him my dad. He's a dick. He USED to be the GREATEST IN THE WORLD! I loved him with all my heart. I guess I'll always respect him for that. But that was then, this is now. My mom's new boyfriend is a really great guy. He was just like my dad used to be, but he does other really cool things too. Well, gotta go diary. My mom's new boyfriend wants to take me white water rafting. Sounds fun. Later.
KRS was the man. There's only one father and no matter how much of a drunk, bitter, pedophile he is, HE'S STILL YOUR DAD. I guess you have to respect that to an extent. But um...I don't know. I'll finish this later.
Did anyone notice what he said about eminem?
"everyone's laughing at Eminem anyway"
I think he said some great shit in that interview--the part about establishing a document that outlines what IS and ISN'T hip hop. That way, the media can't call a beef between two "rappers" a hip hop violence problem. I think that was a very good idea and would help to clean up the shitty image this culture has in the mainstream media.
I also think he was being a dreamer with some of that shit--the part about teaching kindergarden (or 1st graders, I can't remember) students the 4 elements of hip hop? Come on, Kris. That is something that will never happen. And really, what purpose would it serve? If you do that, then you have to also give them rock n roll history, or jazz, or soul, etc. I mean what makes hip hop so special that little kids need to learn about it along with their ABC's?
But other than that, I agreed with everything he said in that interview and it furthered my belief that KRS is the ideal ambassador for hip hop culture to the masses. The man is so well-spoken and intelligent.

1. KRS is a legend.
2. He is the still the illest live MC.
3. He is off his fuckin rocker.
he has always flirted with hypocrisy, but so have dozens of other great MCs and artists in general. it's more than just him being ambitious, self-absorbed, and contradictory. he seems, at least in his interviews, to project the persona of someone who has no grounding in reality. he greatly exaggerates his own influence as well as that of hip hop, his memory is very selective, and he embelishes when it suits his purposes.
there's no way he could be planning this stuff. i just can't see him thinking deeply about some of the things he says. i think he just lets fly whatever he's thinking at the moment, without taking time to consider how ridiculous it sounds. because he has essentially abandoned his control/good sense mechanism, i think he's borderline nuts. whatever though, he's definitely gives some of the most entertaining interviews i've ever read.
and thats word
