man, most early blues is about fucking, satan, or murder. most people can't tell because they hide the meaning behind metaphor and slang. i love people who claim that blues and jazz are wholesome music as opposed to rap. jazz is a form of the word, "jizz," as in "ejaculate." "jazz" or "jaz" meant, "the shit" back in the day. so, "jazz music" was the hot music of the time. early jazz is full of sex and drugs. and the old blues and jazz performers were just as gangsta as any of the hip hop cats today. if you don't believe me, read miles davis's autobiography, or better yet, have a drink with one of the surviving jazz greats, if you are lucky enough. you will be suprised how hard these cats are. every generation has nay-sayers who lambast the music of the youth, who have nothing more to do than to criticize and to belittle true creativity.
