Journal: "Good times are here again"

*"I got 5 on it". Big shout to Liz. Be sure to check http://nobodybeatstheliz.wordpress.com/

I meant to do this blog a few days ago but I've been busy with music and life. More so life than music since life inspires the music. Music is a soundtrack to life yadda yadda yadda. Anyways, the other night I was at Southpaw to see some good friends who make great music rock out. 8thw1 dropped a new album which is awesome! COP IT NOW ON iTUNES! If you never seen AOK rock live I advise you to as soon as possible. It felt like 08' when I was a newcomer wet behind the ears ready to rhyme over any beat (the babyfaze azzazzin era). Now that I've matured and take time on my music I appreciate all the obstacles I've overcome and seen people overcome. Watching the growth of people is a very amazing experience. Seeing people you care about reach a higher level is very inspirational. It's how it should be right? If you chill with winners you'll strive to be a winner yourself. Things like doubt and fear are really illusions. Once you unlock yourself you'll be able to do anything. It's really more of inner battle than the whole "me against the world". I remember using that excuse and now that I think about it, I laugh. As individuals no one else can do what you do, you just gotta find out what you do. What do you have to offer to the world? Easy question but it takes a lifetime to answer it. Some never get to answer that question. As for me, I live to answer that question. I hope others do too. On twitter my bio reads "You'll understand me later, just enjoy me now", I couldn't have said/typed it better. One thing is for sure, good times are here again. Dark clouds have disappeared. I've officially have left Square One of my life and am fully prepared for Phase Two. Now if you excuse me I got some work to do. Catch ya on the flip flop cool breeze.
