RIP MF Doom. One of the greatest MC’s of all time. He was obscure, eccentric and relatively unknown to the masses. However, his lyricism had a giant influence on rappers of all sorts.
With the announcement of his recent death, I thought it timely to share an insight that could help anyone slogging through the creative process. This not only relates to writing lyrics. You might be writing copy for a brochure, developing a new product or planning the strategic direction for a business. Bottom line is this all requires some form of creativity that can get blocked.
Below I’ve provided a snipped from MF Doom. And below that, I’ve also shared a longer clip from Monty Python’s John Cleese on the creative process. Many companies, executives, artists and individuals struggle to be innovative and creative. It’s a discipline that needs to be tended to. If you want to be creative or innovative, it’s important to understand how it works.
