i love hip hop

so yes i love hip hop...i really do love hip hop...


mostly i think its a love that started with my brother sharing all of his music with me...either my choice or by force (me yelling at the top of my lungs to my parents when he wouldn't let me listen to his music...INCREDIBLE i know but hey i was a spoiled brat at least to him anyways...)


i remember listening to Tribe, De La Soul, you name it he had it from the Jungle brothers to patches "gangsta bia" i loved listening to music...it just has always been around me


most of my friends say that i am an old soul becuase i totally love soul, funk, and classic r&b music...old stuff...well if you have been around here before you already really KNOW how much i love music...


its just something about a song that can just take you to another place, space and time...it can connect to your heart when you are feeling the pain of a break-up. It can connect with your spirit and make you ready to party on a "ladies night out" it can just make you, break you, pump you up or pull you down...music is the ONE thing that knows no color no boundaries, its a universal that we can all relate to on different levels...


but back to the title...i love hip hop...i like rap, but i love hip hop...if you have to ask the difference then you already know that there is a problem...


i was a lupe fiasco fan with his first album but i wasn't really impressed with this most recent one...except for when i heard his latest single...


Paris, Tokyo...and Hip Hop Saved My Life...so now i must purchase it...i must admit that i have been falling totally OFF on my music buying skills...i am normally THE person that orders a CD the day it comes out so that i can pick it up at my local Best Buy...but hear lately, i just haven't done it...so today i'll order my CDs that i have been meaning to get because i am in MUCH need of the newness...



Have a great monday...





wherever i go, she goes....

pretty much my life right now, but that's a WHOLE nother entry that i am just not ready to share yet...


happy monday folk

i'm so not really into mainstream music right now. lyrically they have garbage for content. I listen to a lot of alternative music and scourer iTunes for music that actually have content and not just a beat.

I'm not knocking your love for hip hop.

Love!
