“Now come on everybody, let’s make cocaine cool.
We need a few more half naked women up in the pool.
And hold this MAC-10 that’s all covered in jewels.
And can you please put your titties closer to the 22s?
And where’s the champagne? We need champagne!
Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand,
And now hold up your chain slow motion through the flames.
Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain.
But not too loud ‘cause the baby’s sleepin’
I wonder if it knows what the world is keepin’
Up both sleeves while he lay there dreamin’
Me and my robot tip-toe ‘round creepin’
I had to turn my back on what got you paid
I couldn’t see half the hood on me like Abu Ghraib
But I’d like to thank the streets that drove me crazy
And all the televisions out there that raised me, I was….”—Daydreamin’ | Lupe Fiasco
Happy cause they were super involved in all the Freshman Week events but sad because most of these chicks looked like strippers and/or was selling it and was eating up the attention these lil dudes was given them.
Soooo there was a Sister to Sister talk panel and I sat in on it. While everyone else was dancing around things and being nice, I said everything that needed to be said in almost the meanest way possible. I didn’t want to SCARE them but I wanted them to be prepared for the situations that they were embarking on. HIV is real. STDs is real. Kids are real. I have seen WAY to many freshmen drop out by CHRISTMAS because no one just sat down and told them what the fuck was up and ended up throwing it away and not even knowing it.
I think the realest thing I told them was: “These niggas are mostly going to get at you not because you are cute. Hey they might think that. But because ya’ll are new blood and they trying to hit before anyone else does…and they wanna rack up as many freshmen as possible.” Was I wrong? Was I out of line to say that. Or to say to these girls that some of these dudes have kids, girlfriends, wives, and sometimes BOYFRIENDS back home? I mean I was just wondering.

I've been asked how I come across music sometimes.
It’s not blogs like NahRight, 2DopeBoys, or YouHearThatNew. Although I like those blogs.
MOST of the time. I simple random DL mixtapes. Yep. Just click shit.
Have my own opinion on it. Instead of reading some blog that may or may not like it IF they even place it on the blog. So yeh. That’s how I get it. Oooorr. Artist that I like and like enough to follow on Twitter I see other artist that they talk to. Usually they end up being artist that I like.

Live via me, I can be the air for ya.
I’m in a rare breed. Extraordinary League…
With anything you need, I’m Jeff Gordon to the scene.
According to the stats darling, we could never be.
Fine women love losers. They treat em better cheap .
I’ll treat you like a queen. You’ll never be a slave.
I’ll show you I’m a gentleman, but you prefer a caveman.
Shoebox money. Crumpled up 20s. I’ll teach you ‘bout equity.

“I look at the sky
& dream of soaring, just as high, but as time goes by.
It’s always something..
that knocks me off my track
got to get back cause time is short.
Ayy, can you feel it?
& I don’t know how long I can keep on like this.
I need a sign.
I gotta pay for it. Sometimes happiness the only thing I pray for.
I can’t leave it alone..
….I can’t struggle forever.”—

This song has got me through the last week and a 1/2.
CNN — A federal judge in California on Wednesday knocked down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, ruling that voter-approved Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution — handing supporters of gay rights a major victory in a case that almost all sides say is sure to wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
