Lupe Fiasco – Bitch Bad

Yup. But I bet no one wants to hear it because it’s true.

Lupe Fiasco – Around My Way (Freedom Aint Free)

I’m a avid Lupe fan. That’s why I was disappointed with his Lasers album. Lasers was a product of a war between Lupe and Atlantic Records — though there a few decent tracks, the quality was un-Lupe-esque. Lupe’s thought process going into his next album is to revisit his Food and Liquor days in which he gained my loyalty.

Childish Gambino – Royalty

When I heard his brief “freestyle” on Sway in the Morning via Rap RadarI wasn’t impressed because it was suppose to be a “freestyle” rather a written verse he recited from his smartphone. The hype was infinitely greater his other niche, 30 Rock. I never watched 30 Rock but to walk away from a promising career in television to start a music career is quite brave, yet challenging.

Came across this tweet this evening, and thought it represented the viewpoints of America today.

Frank Ocean, do you really care?

If I tell you that I care about the news that has taken social media by storm then I would be a liar. The fact that Frank Ocean decided to step out of closet probably has him visiting whether he should step back into the closet and hide. If fans didn’t like his music, would this be a topic/issue? Furthermore, have the signs of his sexual nature always been ingratiated in his music? On his Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape, the track “We All Try” he addressed that love isn’t between man and woman, but between love and love.

Don’t know if this is the official video but profound nonetheless.

I tend to have a strong opinion and my thoughts are based on personal experience along with pure ignorance, however, I’ve come to accept the homosexual behaviors in the world. At times, I’ve fallen victim to homophobic tendencies, and my reactionary responses are similar to that of Martin when he becomes sicken of Pamela James buckshots and breath. I’ve matured. It’ll still take time to accept male relationships.

I’m a contrarian! Nothing sounds right or holds weight at first listen.
