bansky and Run the Jewels talk about Dismaland and more

Banksy has been the talk of the town since the inception of his infamous Dismaland and rare interview with the Guardian about the Dismaland project, describing it as "a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism. I guess you’d say its a theme park whose big theme is – theme parks should have bigger themes."

But, the Bansky trend is still going, with a recent interview/conversation from the Guardian between Banksy and Run The Jewels. Talking about crying over a YouTube video, Kanye West and more.


Bansky: The clip of your speech at Ferguson after the verdict [when the jury decided not to charge officer Darren Wilson for the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown] made me cry. When did you last cry watching YouTube?

KM The last time YouTube made me cry was watching Dr John Henrik Clarke speak about Marcus Garvey. I was overwhelmed with pain for a great man that was abused and mistreated because he wanted to better the state of blacks globally. It is scary to think a system exists that wishes not to see all people live with human dignity and respect. I did, however, finish feeling encouraged that day will come.

EL-P When the two guys raised the lion and then set the lion free but they missed the lion and they visited it in Africa and the lion was now king of his tribe and had a wife and children but he recognised the two guys and ran up and hugged them and licked their faces. I wept like a baby.

Banksy: When Kanye came to the UK recently, he played on a dairy farm and declared himself the greatest rock star in the world. Does he have any competition for that?

EL-P Absolutely not.

KM Kanye is amazing and may be the greatest rock star in the world but Rihanna is the new Tupac (in feminist form), and as much as I love rock, ain’t nobody do it like Pac! Ri-Ri rules in my book.
