I used to haaaaate old hip-hop

I never saw what all the hooplah about Biggie and Pac was. I knew they were two of the biggest legends in hip-hop and I knew that eeeveryone jammed their music back in the 90's but I still didn't really care. Then one day I decided to really listen to Biggie's music. This is one of my favorite songs by him. I remember hearing the words and seeing a movie in my head. In my opinion, the best rappers, shit the best artists have this insane ability to tell stories through whatever medium it is that they use. Whether it be music, poetry, a canvas, a block of marble, whatever... they do it with such ease and such attention that you see every little detail in your head, as if you were watching a movie. R.I.P Christopher.
Whatchu know bout it?

There are certain songs that I can listen to that just put me in a good mood

This is one of those songs.
When I hear this song, as cheesy as it sounds, I think of me and my wife (whoever that will be), not even a year into our marriage, when things are still new, going on a roadtrip and singing this at the top of our lungs with the top down and our cool shades on. We won't know where we're going, we'll just have gas money, a GPS, and each other. I know that was some cornball movie type shit, but I told you what this song does to me damn it. -_-

If you haven't seen this, see it.

life changing shit.


This is and probably always will be my favorite album ever.

  I still remember the first time I saw the "Through the Wire" video. I just remember hearing the beat and being like, daaamn that beat is ridiculous. It wasn't your typical "boom-bap" beat. The drum patterns were complex, the sample was catchy, and the music was...soulful. I sat down and watched it like it was the most interesting movie ever made. I still remember the way it was shot. The camera would pan to different photos tuck to a bulletin board, then the photos would come to life. I remember the "without an arm I spit!" part, lol. I would watch BET's "The Bassment" eeeveryday just to see that damn video. I even taped it on a VHS (YES, VHS) tape. As time passed, I kinda forgot about the tape, and even the song.
  One night I couldn't sleep and I had to go to school the next day, so I went through my older brother's CD's and low and behold the College Dropout CD. I put it in my CD player and lay in bed listening to it. I have never experienced music the way I experienced music listening to that CD for the first time. Every beat was insane, you could tell that so much time and care went into every detail of each track. And though Kanye was lacking as far as wordplay, cadence, and the popular simile style of rap that is so overdone today, he made up for it with his wit, his honesty, and his overall passion for what he was rapping about. I'll give you an example of each.
Wit: "Nice as Bun B when I met 'em at the Source Awards, girl he had with 'em ass coulda won the horse awards" - Last Call
Honesty - "I get down for my grandfather who took my momma, made her sit in that seat where white folks ain't want us to eat/ at the tender age of SIX she was arrested for the sit-ins, with that in my blood I was born to be different - Never Let Me Down
Now niggas can't make it to ballots to choose leadership, but we can make it to Jacob's and to the dealership/ That's why I hear new music and don't be feelin' it, RACISM STILL ALIVE, they just be concealin' it.
- Never Let Me Down
I remember listening to that album over and over and before I knew it, the sun was in my eyes and my alarm was going off. It was time for school.
I don't know if there will ever be an album that captivated me the way The College Dropout did. It's moments like these that make life worth living. This album created a whole new niche in hip-hop music. One that challenges us to think for ourselves. To be true to ourselves. Thank you Mr West.


I need to date more girls like this...


I was listening to an interview with Kanye the other day and they were telling him about how he is referred to as a genius by a lot of different people. His retort to that statement was one that I definitely didn't expect and it actually made a lot of sense. He said that he doesn't believe anyone is a genius, they just have genius moments. His definition of genius was being able to make something of necessity available to everyone before anyone else. This made me think... like damn, he has a point. Like, the title of "genius" is too big of a burden for any one person to carry. Though Albert Einstein had a ton of genius ideas, I'm sure the nigga didn't tie his shoes any different than the rest of us, or blow his nose in a "genius" way. But he did have some brilliant ass ideas. Genius is a medium that I think is more accessible to some and for that they have been labeled genius. When a good person gets in that zone it's awesome. When someone like say.. Hitler gets in that zone... not so much. Hitler was one of the greatest geniuses of all time. Now he obviously didn't use his abilities for good. He damn near wiped out an entire race of people. Could you imagine how things would have been if he had a positive energy behind the power that he had? He would have made an amaaazing President.

Just a random rant. Take it for what it's worth.
