It’s the east coast, no it’s the west coast
It’s public schools, it’s asbestos
It’s mentholated, it’s techno
It’s sleep, life, and death
It’s speed, coke, and meth
We’re jumping in the way back machine all the way to 1997 with Atmosphere’s “Scapegoat” off their debut album, Overcast! I’ve always loved the song because it’s got this kind of slow burn to it as the list of who’s fault it is and what to blame continues to grow longer and more absurd. People generally have a hard time accepting their faults and addressing their shortcomings head on so it’s easier to just blame the fast food giants than it is to get up every day and hit the gym. The irony of this endless feedback loop is particularly biting after hearing Slug name drop dozens of scapegoats over the course of the track.
