Throughout the years that I lived in, there has been many bad things happening to me. The only bad thing that I give thanks to were the time when my dad would spank me for very good reasons. At the time I would be crying and hoping he wouldn’t but they were well deserved. With every spank it hurt, I know that, but later on with every mark I had I knew that pain is temporary it may last for a minute or an hour or a day even a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take it’s place. While that something is getting back it’s time to come back stronger and better because of it and I’m showing that the world is not a happy and peaceful place no it’s a mean and nasty place and it will beat you on your knees if you let it. I have shown that it hasn’t beat’n me from all the hits it has given me, I was able to look up and get up from that situation because it’s not how hard you hit the world it’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward how much pressure you can take and keep moving forward.
I’m just a kid from a run down city called ruckerberg. My name Dj I come from a little bit of nothing like me my mother and my brother J.j. say in a one bed room house. My mom tells me stories on how my dad died in a robber but brother J.j. tells me how he was a bring time cookie seller that live a
And I asked him why would somebody do that? He said because the same chemicals used to make “K2 or Spice” knocks out the THC in marijuana and the crush up molly boosts the high but it’s not the same high its different and dangerous. But he put his hands on my shoulder and told me that I was lucky because I should have been dead but I’m still alive. I haven’t told anybody but my uncle, and my big brother is fine he didn’t hit the blunt that much so he didn’t go through what I went through. Ever since that day, I knew life was too short to just be sitting around doing nothing, I was always talking about doing music and DJing, but I never took the time to sit back and invest in my dream. The grass is always green when you water it, meaning that if I want to accomplish my goals I have to put in the work to succeed in life and what I believe in. I’m not a type of person how be in the streets or run the but it don’t matter who you are the streets will find you, but it’s up to you to stand tall and don’t let it overcome
This genre I chose was a song written by my friend Diego Lemos or his stage name as Tri-Limb who is a rapper and myself which is some normal dude who plays the guitar. I chose to write a short little song because we’re both musicians and writing is one of the things that we enjoy to do on our free time. First line, lyric was basically saying that it can be a really bad addiction died to the nicotine inside the tobacco and smoking it doesn’t make you cool. Second line means that smoking can make you less or even worse appealing to other people, because smoking can give you wrinkles, bad breathe, and your teeth can change colors and that don’t sound like someone you would want to go on a date with. Third line says you’re committing suicide,
You’d probably be pretty happy to hear that your first verse is sung nearly every day in the United States, from school assemblies to sporting events, you’re pretty much a celeb. Your song
Everyone tells you life isn't easy right? That there’s going to be obstacles that you’ll have to overcome . For me, the biggest obstacle was to change, I couldn’t be another failure in the system, neither be a burden. Many fail to realize that change isn’t bad, is to better yourself on who you really are.
You know, all my life I’ve been fighting. Even as a kid I would always get in fights. Kids would call me a loser, and I ain’t no loser. I’m no bum, my whole life i’ve been trying to prove i’m not a bum. That’s one reason I got into fighting. You know My father used to tell me “you weren’t born with much of a brain, so you better start developing your body. So i did. I trained hard. Then I started putting all that training into fighting. But today, i’m not here to talk to you about myself. I’m here today because I want to give you some advice. Focus on your education. Build your brain. I know that may sound weird coming from a fighta but kids now a days don’t understand how important it is. Fighting is dangerous, fighting is for someone that
No matter how many tears you’ve cried, how many memories you have remembered, no matter what has happened in your life, despite of looks, I want you to know something. . To feel like you don’t belong anywhere, and you never have enough friends. I know what it’s like to be hurt. Heartbroken. Bullied endlessly. I know what it’s like to feel like you can do nothing right, or to feel like this is all too much
Lastly this song also reflects to pop culture in general. In this society, nobody seems to like it when other people succeed, but instead enjoy it when people. People gain pleasure off of other people’s failure that it discourages many people to go for their dreams and many potential talents would go to waste as stated in the first verse: “You'll promise that you'll pay for the things you can. You want the whole world but its burning in your hands. You're asking for help no one hears you understand. Tt's a crowd full of friendship can never go fam. They love you then but they don't love you now. Your whole life seems to be crashing down. You never feel safe when there's no around. So if you feel like giving up you gotta STAND YOUR GROUND!” and in the second verse: “People will always try to bring you down it's a part of life” In addition to that he gives advice on not giving into the crowd and just be yourself and work hard as stated in the first verse: “No one else can ever tell it you otherwise. So stop trying to be just like them other guys. Fake the haters who living to see you failing life,
It may seem out of the ordinary for someone like me to relate my entire life to a rap song, but it has been the case for several years. Specific lyrics ringing through my head whenever those moments come to me. A motto that spirals into a message of questioning, and wondering to life and the decisions behind it. A song that makes me reassure my decisions, marking that this is my one chance and that, I got to make the most out of it with the risks I take. It’s a whimsical sense of wondering in shallow pools of optimism on the what if’s involved. Did I do the right thing? What if I didn’t? It’s all apart of the mental checklist that flows like a creek in the forest of my mind. Overall, my life isn't defined by the shortcuts I take, but instead
In continuation, motivational, protest songs exist for decades; they appeared in the response to a specific event or as a reflection of the general situation in the society. People used lyrics to express their attitude to these circumstances. There is a significant amount of motivational songs in the African-American culture. Despite past years, political and social changes, these lyrics address similar topics. This “tendency to stability” is evident during the analysis of two songs: the
Ain’t nothin’ over! I've been around the streets for five years. I’m still breathing, I’m still working; maybe not in the real life….how you say? You see but I’m working within, I’m working’ hard, within’ my chest, my heart ooh, I’m thriving, I’m seeing, I’m tasting.
Music has always been a very important part of my life. Through music I have been able to learn more about myself than I ever thought possible. My taste in music has changed exponentially over the years and I have curated my current music library to fit who I am today and who I would like to be tomorrow. The music that I have picked reflects who I am in many ways and reflects the different aspects of my life. These songs showcase the way I view my life, myself, and my dreams. This is a mixtape of five songs that I have carefully selected to represent who I am, where I am, who I love, who I was, and where I want to be.
I been taking my time, trying to succeed trying to shed a little light. It’s been so hard but I gotta give it my all. I will move in life until my legs give up. Once I stare into my own reflection I will know that this is the true me and I will thank god for what he did. I ain’t no pawn in life I will reach the top as a king with my king at side with me. I just wanna think positive every morning, thinking of waking up next to him asking him, will you marry me?
Every man and woman strive to achieve successes, it’s what our parents teaches us at birth, but what a lot of people don’t realize, success comes with a lot of failures. I’m not going to lie, I thought life would be easy. I graduate from high school, never got in trouble, and was a promising basketball star. During high school, things were handed to me, and I never really thought about my future. When the time came for the real world, I didn’t know what the struggle and grind of life was, and growing up in the urban part of the bay area, which life a bit harder. My life was changing and I didn’t have a direction, and I kept sinking lower, until I couldn’t sink no more. With some major set in my, I set out to make change for not just me
