the opening scene is the last scene

Columbia City
December 28, 2013
200 people are in attendance.
My girl is here on the second floor.
My homies from Lakewood are here.
Nikkita is singing on a couple of tracks.
Obe is playing the steel pan.
Worst show of my life.
Sound problems.
Drunk person in crowd.
Uphill battle from the beginning of the set.
I die from embarrassment.
My rapper self is crucified.

Flash Forward to the Future


be ready
be ready for it all
be ready to take a stand
be ready for the fall
be ready for the situations causing you to grow
be ready for the pain
be ready for the blows
be ready to come correct when you know that they wrong
be ready to face weakness when they know that you strong
be ready for life
but be ready for death
be ready for the revolution
this is the first step
