I’m looking at this differently.
“All I can do is tell you I was very inspired and y’all know my music is all about the journey. ”
Here’s a black hip hop artist who’s not only familiar with the Grateful Dead, he finds the Dead personally and artistically inspiring and analogizes his career goals to the Dead in a complimentary fashion, all while potentially introducing a whole new demographic of music fans to the Dead.
I simply cannot find it in me to react to this negatively.

If Jerry Garcia was nothing else, he was the ultimate original. I believe Jerry would be the first to tell us, "I never spent my life slavishly copying anyone. Influenced by - yes; copying – no. First and foremost, be yourself."
