IDGAF, by George Watsky

October 4, 2012

In an effort to increase the number of posts on our blog, Faun and I have decided to try to occasionally post songs that are inspiring us in our day to day lives.  I thought I’d start off this experiment.

George Watsky is a rapper and beat poet from San Francisco who gained huge internet stardom from his youtube video ‘Pale White Kid Raps Fast’. And, indeed, Watsky can rap very very very fast.  But he is also a brilliant poet, and one of the few rappers that I can really get my head around.  This is my favorite song by Watsky.  I really like the message that it relates: the shallow bullshit that we parade around is not nearly as interesting as the stuff we aren’t always proud of, because that other stuff is what makes us a whole person.  Let’s share the secrets, the skeletons in the closet, the monsters under the bed. We all have them, and we all have a crack at meaningful relationships with people if we are willing to reveal that part of ourselves.

Are any of our readers familiar with Watsky? What did you think of the song?  Share below!!!
