When the Wu-Tang clan dropped Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993, the album was an instant classic. A genre-redefining piece of history. And maybe no track on the album is more iconic than C.R.E.A.M. Cash Rules Everything Around Me.
In a capitalist society, money is as important as air or water to survive. Everything runs on money, so when you start seeing corporate America using black and brown faces to sell shit, just know that there is a reason. Dollar, dollar bills y’all.
But is that reason automatically bad? And even if it isn’t perfect, can’t there still be good outcomes and results? Can’t we celebrate … anything? Have we become so programmed to be angry that we can no longer even recognize positive change? If we can’t agree on a definition of REALITY, does it even matter?
Your hosts Don Elivert and Jehriko Turner are asking tough questions. Deep questions. And they sprinkle in some fun, because part of the challenge we all face is recognizing the wins we get and taking a minute to reflect on the accomplishments – to celebrate the progress. Our society must continue to reckon with its past, but allowing ourselves to be triggered without pausing to examine our reactive tendencies will get us nowhere fast. So press play and get some perspective.
That’s what B Dorm is all about. A smart, fun, educated conversation that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is the B Dorm podcast. Pour yourself something. #drinksexy.
