Look At The Mess You’ve Made

There’s a bunch of pics of Kanye West in the studio over at Concrete Loop. I saw them last week but it really just hit me when I was looking at them again how much of a mess the studio is. Check em out.

Amidst all the wires and laptops and junk, there’s genius. There’s creativity. There’s art.

And it’s always funny to me how you see footage of acts in the studio and the spot looks so clean and pristine. I’m not saying everyone’s studio is a mess, but when you’re bunkering down and spending countless hours in one place, it definitely gets out of hand.

The worst is wires. Sometimes there are so many wires going in so many different places, you start getting caught up in them, like a web. And you want to label them so you can quickly patch things, but that’s such a pain in the ass. I can’t be the only one who feels this way.

Then again, some people need things organized in order for them to max out their creative juices. They just get all flustered in the chaos.

I know it seems kind of trivial, but what kind of environment do you like for making tracks?

I remember interviewing The Heatmakerz years ago and Rsonist was saying some producers needed flowers and certain temperatures in the spot to make tracks. He didn’t like that very much lol.

How about yourself?

Totally unrelated: What’s good with Dr. Dre opening a BBQ restaurant? Spotted over at Paul Rosenberg’s blog, utterly hilarious.

    Cleanliness is next to godliness. I mean I don’t need it spotless but when things are too cluttered I gotta clean up. I like to keep things clean cause I hate to clean up.

    C’mon, you guys gotta be smoking to think that Dre opened that spot. I am sure that it is some other dude named Andre who thought it would be cute to open a spot named Dr. Dre’s. Dre wouldn’t be that obvious by naming a spot after himself.

    I usually keep my workplace real neat, no clutter, no mess. Plus all I fucks with is my Macbook, my speakers, and a keyboard, so not alot of shit can clutter up anyway. Nigs gotta keep they shit clean when they come to record though, except for herb & liquor, but that’s already a given. (Heh)
