On Her Mind

You don’t respect my mind
Make me feel stupid in front of my friends
In front of your friends
No regard for feelings
Disregard opinions
Got me looking at other women
You turn me down
When you could’ve said yes
But you only say no cuz it’s something I wanted
It’s not like it’s something we can’t afford
Its because you just don’t want it
Or is it because you don’t want me to have it
Don’t want me to be happy
Control my life
You ain’t my family
You ain’t much while I’m at it
By myself I can do badly
Why you always feel like you gotta compare me
“You’re not like such and such”
“You don’t do like so and so”
You not still with them though
Why you gotta kick me when I’m already feeling low
Why you want me to be different so…
You never compliment my hair or the way I dress
When I do more you tell me do less
Criticize the way I talk or walk always have me stressed
Why you gotta be so difficult
You never seemed pleased
Even when I break my back
Even when I’m down on my knees
And he said….
Same thing goes for you
I get on my knees to please you
Break my back working to feed you
You say I talk like a thug
Say I walk with a limp
Complain I’m gone too much
But you’re quiet when the money gets spent
Think I should dress with more swagger
Think an s- curl would make me look pimp
When I’m loud I’m too ghetto
When I’m reading I’m nothing like him
Compare me to such and such
Cuz he gave you every frivolous whim
Always asking for something
But you never talking bout doing nothing
And you want everything in the world
But tell me baby…
When did you start to like girls?

I think I put a nice spin on this. Obviously if you understood where I was going with this you know off top that this is not about me.

Cleveland’s Machine Gun Kelly

So in between the Sideline Story and jamming to new mixtapes from Wale and Meek Mill I had a chance to check out Rage Pack by Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly, MGK or Kels for short. He’s got an affiliation with Diddy and as we all know thats only good for the length of time that you stay associated with him (see Loon, Dream, any number of “Da Band” members). With that said lets put the focus on the actual music. MGK actually has a decent tape in Rage Pack. Hype songs in “STFU” and “Wild Boy” (if you can stand the Waka Flock feature). Heartfelt joints like “Chasing Pavements” and even story telling with “On Fire”. Rage Pack is a decent outing if you looking for something to tide you over til Ambition and Radioactive come out.

Randumbz- 12 Jul 2011

Sometimes you have the opportunity to tell someone the truth or a lie. And you weigh the pros and cons, the influences and outcomes and make a decision. but no matter what you choose you always wish you had done the opposite. If you tell the truth you have the awful misfortune of them knowing exactly what you said/ did. If you lie you have guilt and that gnawing feeling that they will find out what the truth is. If you sit in silence then they will know something is wrong and depending on the person it is only a matter of time before they address. In most cases a “matter” is a unit of time measured in minutes (if you are a woman) or decades (because us men are clueless and/ or know better). But in the end where is the middle ground? Compromise is usually reserved for those who have a weaker resolve. The question, or challenge rather, then is how to put yourself in a situation where you do not arrive at this opportunity. Being a member of the opinionated generation I am one of those people that would rather say whatever comes to mind in regards to a topic. But people like us form and express these opinions without often giving mind to the second or third order of effect. What happens if this causes this? Or what happens if this is a result of this causing this and affecting that? The end result then is a consequence that we can not fathom and although it made sense to the other party we can not fathom nor do we feel we deserve such a response. Thus the environment that we create for ourselves is self deprecating. Either we don’t get to say what we want for fear of repercussions and stifle our selves into boggy misery or we crush those around us until we have no audience leaving us with the shrill sound of our own voices. So if you know me or someone like me, don’t put me in a position where I have to make this decision. my response to you should always be natural with no fear or regret.

Return of 4Eva Brings Return of Real Music

These days it seems hard to come by a classic album by an artist. By classic album I mean nine out of every ten songs is good. Labels are scared to take chances and are putting out half cocked albums usually frontloaded with singles and short on substance. At the same time most there are people who craft albums with so much “substance” no one cares. I don’t want to save the whales I want something I can ride to and 5 years from now I won’t be ashamed that I have this cd in my collection **cough** soulja boy tell em cough**. With classics albums hard to come by on iTunes, Amazon, or Best Buy, Big K.R.I.T. is giving away a classic album on datpiff.com. K.R.I.T., which stands for King Remembered In Time, produced and wrote the entire album. He gives you soul, swagger and conciousness without contradiction. “My Sub” an ode to the speakers that enhance the sound we all love K.R.I.T. mixes heavy bass production with good lyrical cadence and a southern twang that makes the song stand out. On Another N.I.G.G.E.R. Naive Individual Glorifying Greed and Encouraging Racism he both promotes the positives of what being black means in America but also discusses the stereotypes that we ourselves continue to bolster. The only place this album falters are on the tracks “Sookie Now” and “Made Alot” featuring David Banner and Big Sant respectively. Their additions to the songs did not add to the greatness that was already there. Still all in all 19 out of 21 songs makes this a classic that you need to download and makes Big K.R.I.T. someone you need to look for when he finally gets his Def Jam release date.

Facebook to Stream WB Movies for $3

In an interesting move Facebook has made a deal with Warner Brothers to start digitally streaming WB movies starting in 2011. The first movie, The Dark Knight will serve as a sort of trial with the full catalog to follow depending on the success. Netflix, the major streaming service in America, took a $12 dollar hit on their stock prices after the announcement. (worried much?) Facebook may be looking to compete as it already has a huge 600 million person customer base and you would still be able to update your status and do all that other rediculous stuff you do on facebook while watching it, but it doesn’t have the ability to stream on all the devices that Netflix can. (Wii, Xbox 360. PS3, iPhone, iPad, pretty much iAnything)… What do yall think? would you pay to watch stuff on FB? #Weighin
