"… No matter what you been through, no matter what you into, no matter what you see when you look outside your window. Brown grass or green grass, picket fence or barbed wire, never ever put them down, you just lift your arms higher, raise ‘em ‘til your arms tired. Let ‘em know you’re there, that you strugglin’ and survivin’, that you gonna persevere … ain’t nobody leavin, nobody goin’ home, even if they turn the lights out the show is goin’ on!" - Lupe Fiasco
"So who am I to judge you on the past, I think there’s a reason for it all. You say that you’re nothing like the last, I just pray that you don’t let me down right now. It’s too late, I’m already yours. You just gotta promise me, hearts won’t break and end up like before. I swear I always fall for your type, for your type. Tell me why I always Fall For Your Type, for your type”
- Jamie Foxx ft. Drake
A special smile, a certain touch. I’ve never had a love that I’ve loved so much. When I look back, you’re everywhere. Turn the page, you were there. My very best friend, my Summer day. My only someone to depend on, when I’m lost in my way. You came and answered my every prayer. Turn the page, you were there.
The true definition of a slow jam.
Aaliyah’s still One in a Million, most definitely.
He’s dope, straight up and I think as a musical artist he’s got it all. His sound is impeccable, his rhymes are mind-blowing, his vibe top-notch - It’s a J. Cole Nation baby, the world just doesn’t know it yet, but I’m all about it. Seriously though, I’m highly anticipating whatever this dude’s got lined up. As soon as his debut album hits, it’s ovaaa.
"My heart’ll turn pitch black and cold if I split with my girl, I would gift wrap the globe if I could give you the world”
Damn, he’s good. Breathing life back into hip-hop? Yes.
P.S. The Warm Up Mixtape is a must-have; can’t even stress it enough!
