If you are a fan of Drake, then you know what occurred this past Friday. If not, YouTube it. I thought long and hard if I should even blog this, but the point I want to make is worth it. Even though this might just blend in with the massive amounts of blogs that will just be people trying to 'stay exclusive' or is cruising the bandwagon for sake of saving face. Read this, then I'll explain:
This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack. I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to gain entry to this game.
“Missing someone gets easier everyday. Because, even though it is one day further from the last time you saw each other, it is one day closer to the next time you will”
See you soon.
Now, with that ... typed, I can post what I really wanted to say. This type of stuff inspires the hell outta me. It's not everyday that you meet A PERSON, much less a rapper, that is so willing to tell you how he feels about something; especially from a vulnerable point of view. It really makes me realize that it's okay to be yourself. I mean, Drake didn't help me come to that conclusion, lol, but you catch my drift. It's just a great thing to see someone who is unafraid of their true character. That's what I live/stand for. Be yourself and always stand for what you believe in. It's the only way to achieve REAL success.
And btw, I plan on looking back and reading this one day. So I'm gonna talk to myself now: Hey what's up self? Have you taken this advice you just preached? That no one else wanted to hear from you? If not, then make it happen!!!!
