1. Song from the album "The Stage is Set" -Lyrical Commission.
2. A mindset/disease affecting the greater part of the Australian hip-hop
community since as early as the mid-to late 80's but the earliest RECORDED cases began in approximately 2003.
Undiagnosed, said disease can result in ultimate suffering for the individual in question. Sufferers develop symptoms aged anywhere between 16-years of age to their mid-30's although onset of said disease can ensnare victims as early as 11.(In exceptional cases especially in Boomtown, Melburn, Sydney and Adlayde.) Though not a terminal disease it can linger dormant or increasingly active until death.
Symptoms may include: Being a addict to heavy drums/drugs, the son of a broken family, (empty) Cartons in the vicinity, Carving beats like some carcass meat and the reported feeling of being "Partial to insanity, Half-full in a fantasy..."(And in certain extreme cases the indescribable, undeniable desire to ingest bulk piss but only possessing the money for a short bus trip... usually resulting in 'shenanigans
' or most commonly 'tomfoolery
' .(see Ex 2.)
The only treatment available currently in Australia involves several months of repetitious 'Oz-hiphopology', occasional 'racking' of luxury items, 'artistic stress release' and detoxing the body of 'evil toxins' with copious amounts of beer... (if beer is not available any drink over 4.5% alcohol is acceptable as is Cask Wine(see Goon) under Aus$11.)
So far, there are no known survivors...
