Yes, the Jesus piece hangs from my neck.

 

“Lord please don’t let me be misunderstood.”

My friends and family can vouch for me when I say I have never been the religious type – my way of praying is talking into the air and hoping its as good as when I bow my head to say grace and the last time I went to church – ?!!? Funny, well actually not funny but rather ironic, thing is I have a very religious family background but I guess I just never took the time to explore it.

I never worried myself as to who he was, what he was, or how he was who he was – I just accepted that there is a higher being and/or spirit to which I acknowledge. And this man has gotten me through the most hardest points in my life and to him I give praise.

It’s just a Sunday, just another Sunday, but another Sunday I ask him to hold me down.

“I know that they could give a —- whether I live and —- , and so I’m asking you if you can hold me down lord – though I stray from you, you know that my heart is good, and I know I ain’t exactly living how I probably should, and I’ma try to act better like it’s hollywood, people congratulate me but all I say is god is good. ” – J. Cole

Future is in good hands – Mainstream what?!

My musical taste has evolved over the years, especially in my transition from high school to college – I’m not all hype about the mainstream jams on the radio, to tell you the truth I couldn’t tell you what’s on my local radio – don’t get me wrong I love bootyshaken music as much as the next chick – but music with a purpose or music with a message – now that’s real music.  

With most legends dead – Bob Marley, TuPac, Biggie, etc – the future is in good hands with Wale, Pharrell, Nas, Jay-Z, and many others . . . and NORTH CAROLINA has a new one on the scene whose music gives me chills, and I like it – J. COLE. Yes – the future is in good hands. . . amen. Long live real music – Take a listen: 

DRAKE WATCH YOUR BACK . . . J- COLE ISN’T LOSING HIS BALANCE . . .   

Taking the gameover - quick.
