so yesterday during the breakdown of my life,
my straight wolf friend came to my rescue.
he gave me a ton of words of encouragement.
he knows music is a big part of my life,
as well as his,
and he suggested songs that would help.
songs i listened to but never really paid attention to the words.
i put on mary j blige, “not gon’ cry”, and he flipped.
“DONT PLAY THAT BITCH SHIT!!!!
ARE YOU CRAZY!!!
THAT IS MUSIC FOR BREAKUPS AND RELATIONSHIPS!!!
YOU NEED MUSIC TO INSPIRE YOU!!!
“LISTEN TO THE WORDS AND HELP YOU RECHARGE” MUSIC!!!
SAVE THAT MUSIC FOR FEMALES WITH AIN’T SHIT NIGGAS!!!”.
well he was right.
i noticed i listen to music that deals with relationships when im sad.
suddenly im sad and depressed.
hip hop helps,
but some of it is too braggadocios.
see: jay z,
the new kanye,
and this new slew of rappers.
so he sent me 2pac,
i decided to create a itunes playlist of music called “handlewithcare”…
lowkey: immanuel if you are reading,
what is that sade song you recommended to me?
ive been trying to remember the name for the longest.
