“Yo, turn me up in the headphones.” Everyday I feel a little piece of the real me coming back. Every morning I wake up, meditate, go over goals, and plan my day. Right before I get to work, I pick a song to get me pumped and lately I’ve been going with old school hip-hop. This morning I went with “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” by Puff and Mase. “I’m through with being a playa and a baller, just want me one bad chick so I can spoil her.” This put put me in a very determined state of mind, taking me back to a time when I was fearless and I knew anything I set my mind to was possible. I’m telling you, I was that kid again.
My cousin and I grew yup like brothers, inseparable, every minute we could, together, making big plans to do big things. Nothing and no one was going to hold us down. The confidence was intoxicating but it’s the free spirit I’m looking to recapture.
Remember that cuz? We’d put on that music, Puff and Mase or some Zpac and Snoop, I’d rap the zpac you’d rap The Snoop. Remember how we used to laugh at the dances Puff did in the background like the Washing Machine and then one of us would do the samp, LMFAO! I almost did it this morning. Or how about rappin that Hispanic cousing panic, Kid Frost, Chicano Pride, get out my way type sh_. That was us man, Puff and Biggie from the Hyprotize video, driving the car in reverse. We were supposed to have the summer of George! and I messed that up.
But I’m not here to rehash regrets, I’m here to embrace the rebirth of that spirit. I’m feelin it, a resurgence. We may be a little older but I’m ready to embrace that essence again. I feel it, it’s time to live it and be the “me” again. So what’s up brother? How about we do Z of Americas Most Wanted, I’ll take the Pac verse.
