WFMU : Freedom is Freeform!

At 36 years of age, I find myself growing more restless by the day. There are times that I feel twice my age, destined to become the ranting old coot that throws stuff from his front porch at passersby just because I can. I resent the fact that my waking hours are spent at a place doing duties I could care less about and then having to steal back time and fight off sleep to do what I'm passionate about. I resent a lot of sh*t, actually.
With that being said, it's nice to look upon the youth and see boundless potential, to know that there are heads coming up behind me that are light years ahead in possibilities. Consider the young lord out of Hollywood, Florida named Black Ant, beatmaker in training. Judging from his Free Beats Sel. 3 collection, he is well on his way to being a pad-punching, knob-twiddling Jedi. Joints like the horn-drenched "government funded weed" and the head nod-inducing "Underdog" make me smile, plus they have me excited about what this hip-hop wunderkind will be creating in the next five years.
Sit back, relax, and take a minute and change to achieve bliss with the spaced-out selection "Oh K." And once it's over, remind yourself that the brother's still in high school...
