markserranopro-deactivated20131 asked: Why are they trying to sell “Novacane” on itunes when most of his current fans have it for free?
Also why is he doing it through Def Jam, shouldn’t he be mad they wouldn’t release it the first time around?
And why would he re-release it, wouldn’t making a whole new album be a lot better?

rivke asked: some background on that pic (from wiki): In March 1993, while on a trip to Sudan, Carter was preparing to photograph a starving toddler trying to reach a feeding center when a vulture landed nearby. Carter later said that he waited 20 minutes to see if the vulture would flare its wings. He finally took a picture and then chased off the vulture. However, he came under criticism for failing to help the girl:
The St. Petersburg Times in Florida said this of Carter: "The man adjusting his lens to take just the right frame of her suffering, might just as well be a predator, another vulture on the scene."
Sold to the New York Times, the photograph first appeared on March 26, 1993. Hundreds of people contacted the newspaper to ask the fate of the girl. The paper reported that it was unknown whether she had managed to reach the feeding center. In 1994, the photograph won Pulitzer Prize.
Carter later committed suicide. This photograph raises issue about photographers and their relationship to their subjects.
just sad, all the way around.
