I could write a post about the fact that pretty much everything in my life sucks right now because I’m the biggest human push over in the history of human push overs. I mean, I pretty much let people walk all over me on a daily basis. This is a problem, and really I need to go back to being a mega-bitch and calling everyone out on their bullshit and looking out for numereo uno.
Of course, this would involve me basically screwing over a large group of people who are in theory my friends – but really, are they my friends when they don’t want to help me out and they consistantly put their needs in front of mine? (I don’t think so.)
Instead, I’m going to go the uplifting route though.
You see, Jenna Marbles, a well known video blogger posted something to the internet called “What Hip Hop Taught Me”. It basically calls out all the ridiculous things that rappers talk about in their songs and is slightly amusing. Go ahead, watch the video:
Now that you’ve watched the video, let me explain… you see, on facebook, I often write one word sentences that have come out of rap songs. A lot of the times, people that I’m friends with like these status and then repost them not even knowing they are coming from rap songs. So here are the things that hip hop taught me – and all of you by proxy, without you even knowing it:
Drake has taught me:
“A chance is like a picture, it’d be nice if you just take it.”
“The hardest part about the f***ing business is minding your own.”
‘Lil Wayne has taught me:
“Today I went shopping and talk is still cheap.”
“Life is a beach, I’m just playing in the sand.”
“I don’t go around fire expecting not to sweat.”
“You can keep knockin’, but won’t knock me down.”
Biggie taught me:
“Sky is the limit and you know that you keep on, just keep on pressin on. Sky is the limit and you know that you can have what you want, be what you want.”
Tupac taught me:
“But please don’t cry, dry your eyes, never let up. Forgive but don’t forget, girl keep your head up.”
Eminem taught me:
“I’m standing up, I’m gonna face my demons, I’m manning up, I’m gonna hold my ground. I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up, time to put my life back together right now.”
“I’m not going to let someone else’s coffin rest on my conscious.”
D12 taught me:
Well, shit – you wanna know what D12 taught me? That this song is life:
After all the years we’ve been down, ain’t no way – no how. This bullshit can’t be true. We’re family, ain’t a damn thing changed, unless it’s you.
