bone thugs - foe tha love of $$ [1994]

Growing up in the 90s and in the midwest, you had to fuck with Bone. they were so original. I still hear the influence in newer artists especially those who are also out of the midwest like Kid Cudi and Nelly. Bone had it all. These niggas was young, gangsta, rappin real life shit, smokin weed, and they just simply reminded you of some dudes of the block. They had the ability to draw you in just off of the pure curiousity of how are these niggas singing and rapping AND tongue twistin simultaneously? Truly original! We had Twista for the tongue twisting part and Do Or Die slightly did the melodic tongue twisting but Bone was gangsta with that shit. Now is that shit relevant today? HELL NAH. I'd much rather listen to Cudi. But, nonetheless, thanks to Bone Thugs for so many good songs that I can still vibe to.

i took this picture of the lake, then effortlessly blew down the street like a tumbleweed.

it was super windy. i dug this sweater out of my moms closet. i used to wear it in the 8th grade to hide my boobs. imagine being thirteen with C cups. #horror.

the pharcyde - she said [ j dilla remix]

"I guess everybody needs somebody to love you can't leave love lonely, cause being naive to it.. you can just lose it like that. see kisses for bruises don't make it heal back, it be the sex appeal that's from the next and.. not necessarily the sex and.. what might appeal to the intellect having a greater affect on how they feelin', stimulation breakin down their shields for the real and as it stands mysteriously.. curiosity it kills the cat and offsets them mentally so they're trapped in behind these fantasies with no action searchin for a remedy now she loves her man but there is just a different type of chemistry that flairs when her desires on fire quick is the fuse anotha loves for hire.."

werd. thats poetry. <3
