I've held back from all the controversy and the noise, mainly to get things shaken out, get all the details refined.  Now I feel this is the right time to make my statement.  I've come to the conclusion that one question must be asked:


Seriously.  The last time I saw 2 in concert was in 2010, and 2 was struggling. It was like he didn't have enough material and wasn't researched nor rehearsed properly. It was off the cuff... and it was starting to fall flat.  That method of delivery made me rethink going to 2's rants.

Fast forward to today, and I'm seeing allusions of 2 being Donald Trump... but not in a good way.  It was like 2 was being caught in a lie. He is stammering, flailing, trying to come up with not the best responce but one that will placate the masses.  And he is failing.  He may of tried to lay a trap for his critics, but they saw it a mile ahead, and instead used it on him.  Anything he's saying now only makes 2's problems worse.

This isn't the 2 of the aughts. Something changed, and not for the better.  I think 2 touched a third rail topic without taking precautions, and we're now seeing the aftermath.

Before I go on, let me define "third rail topic."  If you know about most subway lines, the subway train cars get their power from a high-voltage, high amperage third rail.  Touch it without depowering it, and you more than likely die.  Take a topic that is so highly charged, and just talk about it without doing your research, and kiss your talking/political carrer good-bye.  That is a third rail topic.

Rape is a third rail topic, for obvious reasons.  Mental issues, like depression and suicide, can safely be called a third rail topic now.  Other stand-up commedians have a difficult time handling those topics, so much that only a few have put in the research to do it properly (ie, getting the proper equipment to depower the third rail).

2 didn't do that, and is getting promptly fried.  From much of the aftermath, it sounds like 2's still holding on to the third rail. If he doesn't let go, he's going to turn into ash.

Thus, What the fuck is wrong with you, 2? Why are you still touching the third rail?
