Mysterious ways…

The universe really does work in mysterious ways.

It’s amazing how just a few weeks ago I was all caught up and had a mad case of tunnel vision, but once I was finally able to step back from the situation and be more honest with myself, things have gotten a whole lot better.

When it rains, it pours (in a good way).

Nas – Daughters (prod. No I.D.)

some classic sounding Nasir with an ode to daughters and the challenges of being a single father. No I.D comes through once again with a gritty soulful beat suiting the concept perfectly. “Life Is Good” drops July 17th.  

I’m feelin’ this song.

Although…I can’t exactly turn off my “critical” switch. There’s still that patriarchal double standard when it comes to raising sons vs. daughters. Nas says it himself:

When he date, he straight, chip off his own papa
When she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off
Cause we think no one is good enough for our daughters

Yuna - Live Your Life (Produced by Pharrell)

Live if you really want to…

This last week was pretty hectic, and although it seemed to fly by, it was filled with inspiration and productivity. Sure, good things can randomly happen, but most of the times you have to go out and get it.

We were meant for something bigger than this. Don’t ever try to dismiss yourself cuz you don’t have to…
