I know, I know. Where the f*ck have I been lately? Well, if you have a minute or two to read this, I’ll give you a brief rundown. As you might know already, I’ve been back in school since last month, taking an Accounting class that has been kicking my butt. I’m only going part-time, but still have found some type of way to fill my schedule to the point of being more busy now than I was when I was going full-time last year (which took me MONTHS to recover from). But, I’m now relatively stress-free, which is always good because I have the tendency to always be stressed about something all the time.
Aside from school, I’ve just been trying to get my money up and knock out these goals I set up for myself at the beginning of the year. Some being, to stop being so anti-social and a homebody, get back in shape and overall f*ck with good people. So far, the goals are coming along nicely! Especially the reshaping my circle part. I mean I’m kicking out people left and right. Only to replace them with people that are more aligned with my character and vision. You can’t be on your way to the top with f*ck boys and the otherwise unmotivated riding shot gun, ya know.
So basically, I’ve just been getting my sh*t together like I told you I was at the beginning of the year. Plus, I just haven’t been feeling the hip hop scene lately. I don’t even know when was the last time I was looking forward to hearing anything besides To Pimp a Butterfly. I was even indifferent about The Life of Pablo dropping last week. Because at the end of the day, everything sounds to same! As a music lover, this has been totally depressing. To say I’ve been unimpressed and uninspired would be an understatement. Which is why I’ve resorted to listening to old R. Kelly, Kendrick Lamar and Dom Kennedy to soothe my soul.
I even thought about taking an extended vacation from W.Coast.K. But then I logged on to Twitter today and saw that there is an outcry for more black writers in hip hop, which seems like a contradiction in itself. But, when you look at these major hip hop publications, you will find that black writers on their staff are in the minority. And that’s that sh*t I don’t like. Which is another post in itself…
But, after I saw that, I just knew that I had to keep W.Coast.K going strong. Not only to provide a black perspective on hip hop, but a female one as well. So, like I say all the time, I might not post everyday. But when I do it’ll be that real sh*t! And that’s what I’ve been up to. #Peace
