I knew the second single was going to be on some R&B shit and this is exactly what I was lookin’ for from Drizzy on the second go around. I love how short this shit is. Kanye does a sick job on the beat and I’m 100% sure this will be around the radio for awhile. I’m happy homie went to a formula that he knows would work for an album like this. Now I’m really excited to hear whatever is going to be on this album. Before I kind of disappointed that “Over” didn’t have the staying power I wish it had… So I was about to go bananas and start leaking all the old shit I’ve been holding from Aubrey that not too many people have, just to get that old feeling back. 😉 This jawn is CERTIFIED though… I approve 100%.

Thank Me Late in stores June 15th, 2010. <=== GET IT!

Try Again…

Not a big Day26 fan at all, but this track featuring R. Les just surfaced yesterday and I’ve been rockin’ to it since. It got R. Les on the production and rappin’ on it (I’m sure he wrote the song too). I’ve said this in the past, but I’m not mad at Ryan Leslie for doing the rap thing at all. He goes in sometimes and he doesn’t try to be all “lyrical” he just does his thing.

Enjoy this one people. And yes… I will be posting more “rare/unreleased” Nina Sky jawns soon. It’s gonna be a very dope Spring/Summer!

M.I.A has been one of my favorites since I discovered her in about 2002. I Didn’t appreciate her for real until 2006-2007… Of course off her “Paper Planes” single. Now she’s a momma and mega-rich off one song and decides to comeback with a hard-rock/hip-hop/noise garden of a song with an ultra-violent video that promotes the murder of Ginger Kids and the beating of really fat old people. I LOVE IT! 😉

Real talk though the video is pretty interesting and kind reminds me that art… Well art is pretty much what the artist  wants it to be (even when it has nothing to do with the song in the case of a music video like this). Can’t go wrong with that excuse when it comes to fuckery like this. “Born Free” was directed by Romain-Gavras, who I’m hearing is notorious for ultra-violent music videos. I’m going to check more of his work out ASAP!.

Any hoots, enjoy this one. It’s a pretty dope video if you can stand red headed kids getting blown to bits and old naked fat people getting beaten with batons. (._.)

DISCLAIMER: Like I always say, I write to entertain, but my writing is also part of me. So take it for what it’s meant to be “ENTERTAINMENT” and “MY WORDS.” Oh and it is ART too. I ❤ the arts! Enjoy 😉

“I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.” -Kurt Cobain

How raw of a quote is that?

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m not the best person in this world. Actually I’m probably close to the opposite of what we think is a “Good Person.” I’m not understanding. I’m far from compassionate. And most of all I’m hyper critical. All core values that would make me a good shock-jock on the radio, but leaves me at a distance from some of the people who count on me as a confidante/friend at times. I see it more and more as some people start to distance themselves from me, but why?

I’m actually a nice guy and relatively harmless, besides having a sharp tongue, but what sets me apart from the rest of the “animals” I flock with in society is my “moral” standing. I don’t believe in perpetrating lies while in pursuit of some false “greater good.” Why live a lie to save face or to not hurt someone’s feelings when at the end of the day the truth really can set you free?

I know a lot of people who live a lie or give into things they feel will end some type of “drama” in their lives, but really is that benefiting anyone?

See…  I look at society as three sets. 1) Those who are scared of what’s different. 2) Those who want to be different, but are scared of the people who are scared to be different and 3) The non-conformists.

I’m proud to be #3 because the differences in me is what makes me unique. I like to say this, “I don’t conform. I reform.” People don’t get that about me sometimes and it’s cool. I don’t expect you to understand me right away, but through my writing I hope you get an idea…

Which brings me to The Lies…

I told a friend this once… “Tell someone the truth and they don’t believe you, but if you lie to them… They adore…” It’s so true and sad. We like to be lied to. Someone who’s blunt and honest with you, usually isn’t atop your friends list on FaceBook or Myspace and in most cases you would harbor a deep resentment for someone who keep it “real” with you all the time. Which to me is wack.

The TRUTH hurts, LIES kill…

When you lie to someone, like “Daam Hugh, you look like you’ve lost weight…” Right… Shit like that makes it more comfortable for me to eat more and get fatter and you thought you were being nice. NURP! YOU’RE HELPING TO KILL ME!!!! THANK YOU!

But for real, it’s shit like that, that makes this world fucked up. Who is that benefiting? Bending the truth about someone’s faults doesn’t help them or you much. So I try to be objective and real with people. Someone like myself makes that guilty feeling in you rise up and makes you think. In some cases makes you cry (Yes… I’ve made people cry). The truth hurts and I bask in it. I’m so trill and it doesn’t bother me to be honest because lies only hurt you in the long run.

That’s part of the big reason people confide in me. I’m probably the worst person to confide in overall because to me a lot of the shit people think are “problems” are a joke, when there’s real fucked up shit in society we should be more concerned about. Relationships, he say/she say and pillow talk are not things that are earth shattering…

Don’t get it twisted, I reveal in emotion myself, but I’ve learned that my heart and my mind work separately and that’s what kind of sets me apart from a lot of people. I’m not compassionate to the human cause. It sounds fucked up, but that’s just the way it is. I’m not saying I don’t give to charity or help people. That’s my goal in life, to help people, but we’ve got to see past the signs for help and cut through the bullshit to see who truly needs that help. Basically dead the lies and be honest with yourselves is what I’m saying. Ask yourself, “is this life I lead the life I truly always wanted? Or do I want more or something different?” Is the weight of the world on me or am I selfish and feel my “issues” out weigh the bigger picture?

Strive for #CHANGE…

So what’s the truth about me:

– I’m an ego maniac…

– I’m obsessed with Nina Sky’s music, but not them in particular. They’re cool people I guess, but overall I’d rather listen to them sing than hang out with them…

– I’m emotional… SMH… (._.)

– I flip flop on bad habits in my life… Drinking/Smoking weed. I do them and then I don’t. Currently I don’t and I’m good.

– Women… I ❤ them. 🙂  I see myself settling down with one some day. 😉

– Friends… Love/Hate relationship with all of them, but oddly enough the ones that appreciate my knowledge stick around because I’m usually right about 99.9999%.

– Family… They adore me. Even though I’m the biggest asshole in the fam… I’ll never understand that shit.

–  I’m insecure about my weight… I lost a lot of weight and with that I shed some confidence. It’s suppose to be the opposite way around (I know), but the more I see myself taking on my brother from another mother’s form (Brad Pitt), I find myself less open, which is so weird… I used to be way more confident as the jolly fat man.

– God… I believe in him. He’s pretty awesome.

– Love… I love everything about this world, except Hipsters, Dane Cook & Lupe Fiasco…

– Being in Love… I can honestly say I was in love for a few months last year and the feeling was good even though it wasn’t meant to be. Before or after that, I don’t think I’ve ever really felt it “for real,” but knowing how that felt for real, for real finally… Shit… I think I like it and I’ll know when it’s real when ever it comes around again.

– Money… I got rich, went broke and I’m on my way to being rich again. On that same shit again and all I can do now is STUNT HARD!

–  I’m cocky… If all the bullets I wrote didn’t clue you into that by now, then you’re RETARDED.

– I’m passionate… I go hard… I don’t play by rules…

– I cry… Haven’t cried in a long ass time, but I can admit to having cried.

– Indian women… YEP! 🙂 White girls… Why not! 🙂 Hispanic girls… Sure! 🙂 Middle Eastern women… Depends on how much body hair & nose they have. 🙂  Slanty Eyed Asian/Black girls… meh. 😦

– I’m racist… Yeah….. But not towards religions, cultures and people, but the stereotypes that we put on them. I kind of call out people who live up to stereotypes society puts on them. WE’RE IN AMERICA PEOPLE!!!

– I’m very open with strangers, which makes me pretty strange I guess, but it also makes me honest too. I’d rather be real than _________ <=== you fill in the blank.

I can go on for days with this shit about “me,” but I hope you get it. In this world of a lot of hate, I’ve chosen to not hate anyone. I’ll talk my shit of course, but it doesn’t mean I don’t particular want you to coexist with me. It just means that I don’t care what anyone thinks about me. I make a stunning first impression on people. In that first 10mins of talking to me, you’ve pretty much decided where I fit in your life. From there, it’s really up to you if you appreciate it or think that you’re better off without me. Either way, I’m always gonna be good because at least you know I kept it real.

So… That’s me and if you’re reading this and decided you don’t like what you see… Look in the mirror and ask yourself if anyone has ever seen the real you and would they like what they see?

i still write…

Yeah I got some new stuff coming. I might spend some time tonight finishing up some stuff or maybe coming up with something new. I’m beginning to actually see things for what they are and not for what they perceive themselves to be. Basically I’m beginning to really understand some shit.

Peace.

Close To You…

My mom is one of those people who loves these sappy old 60’s & 70’s “Love” songs. I know she got this in her 500 Greatest Love Songs LP collection, but I first heard it on an episode of The Simpsons when I was a kid and the melody stuck with me & I always had a soft spot in my heart for this record since.

“Close To You” is one of those love songs that’s just undeniably only good when you’re “in love” otherwise it’s pretty corny… I was cracking up on the phone talking to Rell about this jawn and started chopping up the piano at the beginning of the song and putting drums on it like I was gonna make a beat out of it. It turned out to be an epic fail, but it was fun…

I can’t lie this song makes me smile no matter how you slice it up and sequence it because one thing I learned from growing up in a musical household was that the mood was always set by the soundtrack playing behind it. My parents never let the love not emanate from the speakers and I learned so much just watching them smile. It really made me appreciate music soooo much.

It’s crazy to me that throughout the trials, tribulations, from getting rich, to going broke and then getting rich again, I’ve always stayed level when I put on a good song… It sets the mood for   ===> LOVE, PEACE & HAPPINESS… Oh yeah and some good SMOKE always makes things sweeter too… 😉

Man… Time Flies…

“On the day that you were born and the angels got together/ And decided to create a dream come true…”
