tired…

I find it funny how easily someone can drag you into a load of bullshit and pull you out the other end as if you really are a piece of shit. I guess it just all revolves around the people you surround yourself with because at the end of the day, that’s what becomes your life.

RAP MUSIC

You can’t take the Golden Age of Hip Hop and try to define todays modern rap with it. Those standards no longer apply. With todays artist people are quick to say who’s hip-hop and who isn’t by using those characteristics found in the Golden Age of rap. Just because Kendrick is using the elements that created hip-hop doesn’t mean TPAB sucked. Just because J.Cole gets on a record and damn near makes you cry doesn’t mean he’s soft. Just because Young Thug gets on a record and says some shit that isn’t understandable doesn’t mean there isn’t meaning. You have your hip-hop purist and your radio listeners with strong opinions. Hip-Hop is a creative art so wherever an artist goes with his music is where he is going. Theres no rules in what you can or cannot say; Sound like you want to sound.

What Have I Done?

You know that feeling you get after you sit around and entire summer and you notice that just in few weeks from now you got school? It sucks. What makes this situation odd is that I am viewing this as if I am still in high school and its mandatory for me to go. 

Guess what?

I’m CHOOSING to go! I honestly don’t have to put myself through this but I gotta keep my Amazon Student Prime Account, lol! No seriously, I’m sitting on my back porch right now pondering how my summer has been. This summer literally flew by! It’s saddening but I’ve realized it’s like this every summer. 

Each summer that comes around quickly disappears into the sunset. Then winter comes with large amounts of snow and a warm coffee shop for me to sit my ass down in. This little rant doesn’t come back down to me not having a life, but the life that I live. I always do this, sit around at the end of summer vacation wondering what I’ve done these past two months. I hit the rewind button and press play and what I see never disappoints. 

It’s been a good vacation, one that I can sit back and play some good tunes that will remind me of those adventurous days. I’m not sure when school starts, nor have I signed up for classes, but I’ll tell you this; FALL IS COMING!

Now it may be a little to early to scream that one out but I love fall and all of the enjoyment is brings. I’ll be 22 in November and my mixtape is still on the way. How about that? Lol

College Talk

So lately as I bash college more and more, I’ve had two people preach to me about the importance of college. The first was my new fulltime supervisor at work who acts as if he drank an entire pot of coffee before coming in. He stressed to me how much he wants nothing more than to see all of us leave UPS with a piece of paper (referring to a degree of course) because it holds that much value. I couldn’t help but tell myself that while he’s telling me all of this, that fancy Apple Watch he kept glancing at was from a company founded by a college dropout.

As the fine young gentleman I am, I politely listened and pondered later what he told me. I’ve convinced myself college isn’t for me. Yes the college life is cool but having to go through the course’s is what I hate. I know I know, its like that for everyone but in my situation I feel that this isn’t for me. I’m going to put my mind and body through all of this strenuous effort to get a degree that will only help me get my “pinky toe” into the door as my buddy Daimont would say.

The more I ponder my presents in post secondary education, the more I get the “College Talk.” Just today as my mother and I were paying for the brand new tires on our car, the lead mechanic gave me a similar speech about college. I don’t know if its just me but I think theres some force that is trying to keep me in college. I don’t understand why because I have such radical views towards college.

I haven’t quit yet and I’m digging the perks of being student. But going back to my College discussion, I honestly think the only way to make it in life is if you start a business. Now I know, the first thought that comes to mind is that you need to go to school. Yes that is an option but what most people don’t realize is that there are seminars and classes nation wide that is similar to college course’s. You’ll be out of $800 but in the long run you will be able to obtain the knowledge needed to run and operate a business.

Whatever it is I’m trying to do, I need to figure it out quick because I am 21 and I’ll be 30 before we all know it.

My Thoughts About Ferguson

I’m not gonna stand up for black people in this Ferguson situation due to the fact that the only time black people want to come together is when something good or bad has happened to one black person.

Example: Barack Obama runs for office, EVERY black person stands up and supports him because he’s black and they want him to become the first black president. A lot of black people couldn’t cote because they’re convicted felons but they stood behind this man all the way until he got into office. Then what? Us black folk forgot and went right back to doing the same shit; destroying ourselves.

Example 2: Treyvon Martin gets shot by a Mexican. Black people all come together again to protest. For what? Because someone of another race shot and killed a black kid? Yes the situation was fucked up but the only reason why black folk got together was because the boy was black and they figured it was a racial issue.

Example 3: Michael Brown gets shot by a white cop. Black people go into an uproar. The reason this time? Because a white cop shot Mike Brown six times because he rushed him. What do us black people see? Another reason we should get together and destroy shit to show America we’re tired of these “racial issues.”

Ummm pause.

Why in the hell is it that we feel the need to come together to support one black person that fatally got shot but we can’t get together to uplift our damn people. Why can’t we stop violence in the hood, inspire young blacks that basketball isn’t life. Why can’t we bring education to the streets and teach people how to succeed in life? Black people don’t got the mentality. We’re brainwashed to think that when it benefits one of our kind, we need to stand up for them because they’re going to reach back out and help us. It doesn’t work like that and the day black people learn that becoming a nigga isn’t cool, is the day that black folk will prosper.

ps. Race isn’t even real.

Touche

Never in my life have I ever won

3rd Place don’t count so its said and done

I’m over looked and my actions will never shine

I do my best but even close friends say it wasn’t a try

To myself I’m such a failure and damn I’ll never make it

I try to explain what I’m tryna do but y’all just over think it

I got ideas and found a homie who said he’ll stick to it

Now to add more people along is whats left to it

Lets take this over to another place

I do a lot more but never rewarded is the case

I see them other folk talking loud and doing this and that

How we supposed to be on the same page when you always looking back?

Never knew it was okay to be a hypocrite, people do it all the time why not just go and add to it

Can’t talk to so and so and never go to lil buddies house

Assumptions made but never knew that would lead to a turn about

So don’t be fooled you jealous dudes know how to play the fool

Keep in mind that I’m the coldest cat, Saber tooth

Step in the booth with the blaze cus this is hot fire

A wicked mind with sick thoughts this is live wire

I’m never winning, put my gun down every day

A small victory at stake, touche

The past, the present, and the future

If you wish to change the past then you are going to alter your future. Things that happen to you in life happen for a reason. Whether they are good or bad. Just think if you would have never went to the store that evening to pick up some milk, would you have ever met your wife? Exactly! Even if the situation is bad, good always finds its way through.

So if you have always had it implanted in your mind that you want to change the past then you should take it out because if you could change time and changed one little thing, then everything is going to be changed and you my not like it.

Another reason things happen in life that may seem bad is that you don’t repeat history. Why do you think we learn it? Its so that when it comes to a time similar to an event that happened in your past that you did not like you remember what you did wrong and do it right or what ever came your way that was bad, you avoided it. By that, you do not repeat the past and learn from your mistakes. So be glad of what you have here before you and that what happened in the past happened, for good or the bad.

Hello Cruel World!

I got tired of the last 10 blogs I made so I decided to make a new one with a better name and something that didn’t sound stupid. Exploding Rock just sounded better and then BAM! It came into being after just a few clicks and some words I had to type in. Maybe some photo you clicked on directed you here, I don’t know and I really don’t care. JUST READ MY STUFF! No but really this is the first of many post that you will see my blog viewers. You will soon be typing in exploding rock dot wordpress dot com to see what kind of whacked out stuff I have to say and trust me, there will be a lot of crap on here probably worth reading. Like everyone on this earth my life is different and you will get something to read like no other when you come here. But let me stop here because now that I think of it, nobody really ever reads the first blog post, well at least I don’t so I’m gonna leave you guy’s hanging and will see you later today when I got something to write about.
