http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/09/o...g-himself-for-success.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0 Its basically about how before his 3rd album "Country, God, or the Girl" his label had a meeting with him and asked him to americanize his lyrics for this album and talk less about the struggles of his old country. I noticed this when I heard his last album... there were fewer tales of his Somalia days and more tales of the "american" struggles that the people in his songs had. I know a lot of you complained about this when I posted tracks from the album, and I figured the label had something to do with the "safe" approach to this project. I guess every artist has to go through this at some point. ...and as much as I hate to say it, I still fucking love "Country, God, or the Girl" shit was safe... and not as unique as his previous 2 albums, but damn it sounded good.
