D'angelo article in August 2008 Spin Magazine


I was checkin out another one of my favorite sites rappersiknow.com, and they posted a link to a recent article in Spin Magazine about the "Life after the Untitled video", and how he has coped with his personal issues after his success.

I just saw the link, so I haven't got a chance to read it, but after I do, I will reply with my feelings. Without reading it, I can definitely say that D'angelo's life story has been most interesting, with his problems being noted a couple times, but I'm not sure how much of the general public knows the extent of his issues and personalty. Hopefully this article can shed some light, but even MORE hopefully, I hope my man D'angelo can make a come back! We can all agree that he is certainly missed in the game.

It's really sad to hear about such a talented person like D'angelo travel down the road in which he has been, but it is understandable when reading about all the circumstances combined with his personality. I feel a little guilty about putting stress on artists myself, not necessarily D'angelo himself, but I've asked myself 1000's of times, "Why won't Black Star put another album out?!" I now realize and understand that artists make projects with something in mind, and the reception to the project can get taken way farther, or completely differently than the artists intends. I will be extremely proud, and in full support of D'angelo if he can conquer his demons and follow a righteous path in the manor in which he chooses, whatever that may be. This also goes for the other artists meantioned in the article, and other artists that are going through similar issues.
