We're going to mass today, we have to pray
Besides what the pastor say, I have to say
Since Pac passed away
Most you rappers don't even deserve a track from me
You see, if you ever wanted to ever be anything
There'd always be somebody that shoot down any dream
There'll always be haters, that's the way it is
Hater n*ggas marry hater bitches and have hater kids
But they're gonna have to take my life 'fore they take my drive
'cause when I was barely living, that's what kept me alive
Just the thought that maybe it could be better than what we at at this time
Make it out of this grind, 'fore I'm out of my mind
And get some lee way on the he say she say
You girl don't like me, how long has she been gay
Spanish girls say "No hable inglés"
And everybody want to run to me for their single
It's funny how these wack n*ggas need my help
Wasn't around when I couldn't feed myself
Dog, If I was you, I wouldn't feel myself
Dog, If I was you, I'd kill myself
Made a mill myself, and I'm still myself
And I'ma look in the mirror if I need some help
Now I'll speak from the heart, you all fronting
Everybody feel a way about K but at least you all feel something

One of my favorite Kanye West songs, it’s off the Late Registration LP.
Kanye has that inexplicable ability to speak to people with dreams in his music. I enjoy listening to this song every chance I get because it can really help you to put the people in your life in perspective. I am really thankful for those people who support, help and always let me know that they just want me to grow. Those people who have faith in me to be great. And to those who don’t, I often wonder where they will end up when I get to where I’m going. I’ve always felt that the people who insist on being naysayers were only looking for something in themselves. Many people have said that I have changed, but I never changed, I’m still the same. I’ve stopped trying to help people who didn’t want my help, I’ve stopped worrying about why people doubt things they know nothing about. But I still give my all to those who I consider my loved ones. And I guess if you don’t feel that I’m giving my all to you, then I don’t love you.
I’m up on SingleBlackMale.org today, so you can check me out here.
Life is good. God is good.
Thank whatever gods may be for great friends who remind you that you are destined for greatness.
