Fragile – An essay on Mental Illness
William Upski Wimsatt concludes his brief essay on mental illness and hip-hop with some final thoughts on his mentally ill friend. He writes: "[My friend] is not all that hard to understand. He's creative and smart and weird and he's been through a lot of shit – just like every other original hip-hopper I know" (1994, p. 123). His colloquial systemic explanation of mental illness parallels Ludacris's demonstration of the racial politics of physical disability. Obviously, I cannot claim that Ludacris intended for his video to be read this way, but because the visual language of music videos is especially symbolic (and therefore often inscrutable), I believe they are inherently potentially polyvocal and offer multiple points of entry for the audience. I am not arguing that the video must only be read this way, but rather that it can be read this way, and that such a reading is politically significant.
