Why I Write…
“Alright I’m dealin’ with some shit homie, it’s in the back of my head. An’ it’s some shit homie, but I just rap write it instead… An’ it’s hard try’na keep this in ya; So I write it all down, so one day maybe when LIFE is all sweet I’ll remember… An’ I’m the only thing that’s standin’ in my way y’all. But I gotta be with me, it’s no escape y’all…”
It’s true, we all have personal demons that make use do certain things, but rather than take my shit out on all y’all I write it down. That’s why I write and I don’t think I’ll ever stop…
Doesn’t matter to me what people think (as it is), but when you criticize it rather than try to understand it, it’s probably something you don’t want to understand (as it is). And as I get older and wiser ot the way of people, I don’t give a fuck about how anyone thinks of me. I just pride myself on having the knowledge to do shit like this now. It takes balls to be able to express yourself and when you see the reaction; whether it’s tears or jeers… It’s sort of satisfying and refreshing.
Writing or entertaining is one of the most fulfilling things in life. I wish I had it in me still to hit the stage, but my words are so much sweeter on paper rather than verse.So I do this cause this is what works for me.
So basically I’m writing this because I get that question all the time, “why do you write?”
And all I can simply say is, “to express myself homie… If I can’t do that, there’s no reason for me to even live… And if you can’t deal with me living; come and get me…”
