Today marks the second anniversary of Microkhan Jr.’s birth, an event that can only be appropriately honored with the De La Soul cut above. The kid sorta shares a name with the group’s DJ, plus we agree with the spoken sentiment at the song’s beginning—fatherhood makes up for a lot of day-to-day drudgery. Though, granted, it also makes us occasionally yearn for a simpler era—say, 2002 or thereabouts, when we were able to devote the bulk of our spare mental bandwidth to the pursuit of leisure. These days, not so much. Hopefully that deprivation will eventually lead to a new form of wisdom. Guess we’ll find out.
