[Verse 1 – Killer Mike:]
I walk in
Ric Flair’in’, long fur coat wearin’
Rolex rockin’, silk shirt wearin’
Silk socks, and b—s need to breathe
So b—h the draws cotton cause you gon’ suck me when you leave
In a big Benzo on Lorenzos
With your homegirl LaQuinta who said she never did but she would try it
And as she higher than the f–kin’ Hyatt
She jet settin’, Moët’n, the God blesses
Against him prospers no weapon, champaignin’
Campaignin’, gator shoes high steppin’
My dopey eyes just hide behind my Dita frames
I heard this n—a say he don’t like me, well he the lame

[Hook – Sarah Barthel:]
It’s not your fault baby
We were just here born to shine

5/3/16
There was a time when this day seemed far away,
To be a child,
And adolescent,
A teen,
A young adult,

There was a time when there was all the time in the world,
Dreams,
Plans,
Loves,
Experience, Continue reading

“Sometimes it Snows in April”

Thursday evening I realized that you couldn’t sing at my wedding, and I didn’t think about whether I could afford it, and it was then, that I realized the finality in the terrible news that you were gone. Prince Rogers Nelson 1958 – 2016, gone way too soon, and well before your time.

I am still not accepting this. Prince was never meant to be this world’s “weekend lover, (he was supposed to) be some kind of friend, it’s such a shame our friendship had to end.” “Times are (definitely) changing,” But I can’t reach for something new.Thursday evening I realized that you couldn’t sing at my wedding, and I didn’t think about whether I could afford it, and it was then, that I realized the finality in the terrible news that you were gone.

I was en route to see my girlfriend (who also shares my feelings, if not more for Prince) when I learned the news. Over the last two months I had seen him thrice, she twice in the same week, and once together.
I had a conversation with a friend, after, stating how Prince was something that was mine. From growing up in 80’s and having his vinyl to his expanding catalogue in the 90’s. He was someone that I identified growing up, different eras, and special experiences with. Later in life, I was able to share these with others, but that experience was solely based on that affectation in my life. Until I see you again.

[Zack De La Rocha:]
Run them jewels fast, run them, run them jewels fast
Run them, run them, r-run them, run them, f–k the slow mo

[Killer Mike (El-P):]
Fashion slave, you protestin’ to get in a f–kin’ look book
Everything I scribble’s like The Anarchist Cookbook
(Look good, posing in a centerfold of Crook Book)
Black on black on black with a ski mask, that is my crook look
How you like my stylin’, bruh? Ain’t nobody stylin’, bruh
‘Bout to turn this mothaf–ka up like Riker’s Island, bruh
Where my thuggers and my cripples and my bloodles and my brothers?
When you n—-s gon’ unite and kill the police, mothaf–kas?
Or take over a jail, give those COs hell
The burnin’ of the sulfur, God damn I love the smell
Like it’s a pillow torchin’, where the f–k the warden?
And when you find him, we don’t kill him, we just waterboard him
We killin’ ’em for freedom cause they tortured us for boredom
And even if some good ones die, f–k it, the Lord’ll sort ’em
