    History has shown us that genius often comes with a price. Van Gogh 'cut off' his ear and with him, a lot of grand artists in human history took a trip to insane-town.

    Let us give these people a platform they deserve, we shall honor them here.

    I will start off with an Italian Composer named Carlo Gesualdo. Known for his vocal music

    [​IMG]


    Carlo Gesualdo. Born in 1566, was the prince of venosa and count of Conza. An Italian nobleman, musical composer in the late renaissance.

    Gesualdo's wife was sleeping with some other dude in his castle while he was out. So he set her up and in a rage butchered them both with help from his servants. Some stories say he killed one of his infant children as well after looking into his eyes and doubting his paternity

    Now, Carlo being a nobleman was immune from prosecution, but not from revenge. So he spend a lot of time in fear for either one of the families.

    His late live was filled with depression, god fear, guilt and atonement in the form of castigation. Keeping servants to beat him. Eventually dying in isolation *



    Now with that story in mind, listen to the music that a tortured human soul can produce,

    I love that GOYA made the Spanish Royal family purposefuly ugly in his paintings that they commissioned -but knew that if he adorned them with fantastic royal clothing and jewels -they would not be the wiser.

    What a crazy mofo.

    Lil Wayne is every bit an artist. His choice of macabre lyrics reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe's morbid poetry and his musical talent of creating symphony equal, if not greater, than compositions by Johann Pachelbel and Richard Wagner is timeless music that will go down in history to be enjoyed by generations to come.
