This Might Be About Her

I know nothing else matters and that you can't seem to get away. Your makeup is smeared because you cried all night. Get in your car and just drive away, but gas is too expensive to even think about that. Called into work because bearing the world just seems like another meaningless task that you can afford to d0 right now. Open your window and pray out aloud maybe God didn't hear you last night as tear streamed down on your face. Butterflies and dandelions play in a field that you walked bare foot through. Those were happy memories when he stilled loved you and before summer froze over, not it seems like hell.


It's About Time

Heard it all my life,
Think of something new,
Not orginal.

I understand,
It rolls off the tongue.

From my lips,
And yours.

The hypocrisy kills you,
Deal with it,
I had to.

No sweat off my back,
But people always bat eyes.

Run with 400 years,
On your back.
Then tell me,
How your shoulders hurt

Know Your Hip Hop Vol.1

Ok, if you thought Ice Cube(O'Shea Jackson) just did family movies, you're sadly mistaken. Ice Cube left N.W.A. when their popularity was at it's peak. Having written half of N.W.A.'s proverbial middle finger to the world, Straight Outta Compton, Cube left because of royality disputes. On May 16, 1990 he dropped his CLASSIC debut album Amerikkka's Most Wanted. Cube shocked everyone when he enlisted The Bomb Squad(Public Enemy's production team) to produce his album. The album went on to become a commercial success and went platinum two months later. Having been released over 18 years ago, this album stands the test of time as being of the one of the best hip hop albums of all time and most influential.
If you don't know, now you know.

Shit Talking, Mud Slingling and The After Effects

What I never understood is why people talk shit or down about someone? I know I've been guilty of doing this but for the most part I stay away from it, never been a fan of it. If you have a problem with someone or something they do why not speak up and say something to that person. Why the need to go behind their back and talk shit. I see people who talk shit as two groups: the first group being the kind of person who talks shit or slings mud and stays away from that person and doesn't want to associate with said person. The other kind, in my opinion is the worst one, the person who talks behind a person's back and then goes hangs out with said person(i.e. partying with that person, pretending to be their friend, etc.....). This absolutely blows my mind how someone can do this. What does this get you? Do people feel like they have some sort of power when they talk behind someone's back? Do you feel like you have a upper hand on that person? Or do you just feel like you're better then that person? I hate to burst your bubble but, you're not better then that person. Guess what? Grow a fucking spine.

If you're mad this any way shape or form, guess what? You're a shit talker and I'm talking to you. If I hurt feelings good, grow a pair and learn how to speak your mind. It's okay to hurt feelings here and there as long as you are telling the truth. Most people would rather know the truth and have hurt feelings then have someone talk behind their back and them not know. I guess I might have a little more integrity them some other people I know. Don't get it twisted, I'm not saying I'm better because I'm not.
