So he leaves them. We jump into the car with a new Vincent, relieved of the burdens of fakery and meaninglessness.Raswell has taken to a wanderers life- hes homeless, without a future, without a job- his only concern is a constant investigation into the truth around him. Vincent probes into everyones and anyones life: a retail clerk, a pizza store patron, a homeless kid at a bus stop- all are studies for Vincent and his quest to grab at deeper meanings.The 2000 N-I-G-G-A is no holds barred self-expression. It sings a singular song about Los Angeles, about his day and age, and about this Generations view of it. Raswell isnt judging one race as opposed to another- instead he serves us all up black, white, rich, poor and simply says: Look at us. Vincent is 2000. He peels back the veneer and invites us all to look at ourselves, to much amusement and much horror.
