real rappers’ delight?

This rapper dude got shot(ish) in the head.
Next thing, he goes selfie and deliriously telling his phone that he’s a real rapper now…

I think its interesting that despite the blood, some obvious shok and perhaps some pain as well, its not the music that makes him – in his view – a real rapper. Its an occasion in time. Perhaps a getting shot fetish, but def something that is not musical, not aural in its aesthetics – but mental. A mental sensation.

As if Chris Burden had a bit of a shooting prophesy..?

However, if indeed we are talking about aesthetics in mind – do we really need to get shot for that sensation, or the very shooting is in itself imaterial because for mental oriented aesthetics, we need something of the mind – else the activity performs for the mind rather than being from it?
