The Macklemore x Ryan Lewis concert was everything I expected…and then some. 90 minutes of pure energy. Now THAT, my friends, is how you rock a crowd. #INSPIRED
I like a lot of different music, but rap/hip hop will always be that first love. With any relationship, you have your highs and lows, but for a good chunk of 2012 I’ve felt myself growing distant. Maybe things were a little stale and for the most part, it seemed like I was getting too old for it — at least with a lot of the stuff that’s out there. I think it all comes down to needing someone/something that we can grow with and not apart from.
I had an earlier post talking about my excitement for albums that were coming out in September and October, so now that we’re on the tail end of that, I can say that it’s had a really positive effect on my own music and motivation (though my pockets are hurtin’ bad from buying so many albums lately! Lol).
I’ve been able to finish verses that I’ve been stuck on for weeks, or even months, prior. Before I even change out of my work clothes when I come home at night, I’m already listening to instrumentals and writing. It’s been awhile since I’ve had this spark in me, so I’m going to ride it out to the fullest. All I can say is that it feels really good to be so excited and passionate about music again!
I thought I Used to Love H.E.R., but it looks like I still do.
Word up, son.
