    Influence for Tech's "Ego Trippin"

    I don't know if this has been discussed, but I didn't see anything when I searched. As I'm sure many of you know, Tech released a song called "Ego Trippin". I was just reading a book for a hip-hop report and it mentioned Nikki Giovanni, who is a civil rights activist, poet, writer, and early influence for hip-hop music. Apparently she released a poem titled "Ego-Tripping", and it seems like that could have definitely been an influence for Tech's song.

    Yes, but I think a reference to this is a lot more interesting than an easily recognized Popeye reference. Fuck Popeye. And his chicken.
