Words From The Desolate One: A Phone Conversation With Just-Ice


Just-Ice: Still Desolate After All These Years.


By Scott Tre

Never underestimate the importance of having the courage of your convictions.  Tough talk is worth zilch if one hasn’t the stones to back it up.  Rappers would do well to remember this, as Hip-Hop is now going through a phase where words and history are not valued.  MC's no longer have to worry themselves with walking the walk, so long as they talk the talk well enough.  Fans these days are as concerned with artistic integrity and honesty as they are with actually buying CD’s...that is to say, not much.  Such an environment can be extremely dismissive towards an old head with the balls to call it as he sees it.
