"There was a time in my life where I thought I was going crazy. Like, I realized that I wasn’t the one that was crazy, it’s the system that was built against me, ya know? And I’m not supposed to be talking about this, and that’s the corruption of it. Me just saying it is absurd. And I want people to open up their eyes and realize that, I’m not wrong, I’m just an open minded individual, and people should be more open minded, that’s all. I’ve been opening up my pineal gland. The pineal gland is a part in the brain that taps into psychic energy and possibly telekinetic energy, and as I’ve been working on it, I realized that as a rapper, it doesn’t really fall into play with my career, but I’m gonna continue doing it and that’s what I enjoy doing, ya know? Because nothing on the outside world seems to makes me happy. It’s just the simple things. I mean like just seeing a bee take pollen from a flower, That’s life, ya know? And to a three year old child that’s still life. But the thing is, as you grow, this world makes you take your eye off of things like that. And we need to bring it back to that if we ever want to make it anywhere. If we’re trying to build up our lives to have material things and those don’t satisfy our needs, what are we living for?" -Capital STEEZ [RIP ‘93 - ‘12]
I live for coincidences. They briefly give to me the illusion or the hope that there’s a pattern to my life, and if there’s a pattern, then maybe I’m moving toward some kind of destiny where it’s all explained.
If you’re gonna bail, bail early. This applies to relationships, college classes, and sledding,
I think when it’s over you realize all the bad instead of only the good. You miss the memories more than the person. It’ll all come back in flashes sometimes slowly and sometimes in waves like tsunamis. That’s how I know that now it is completely over, now and forever more.
To the new generation of lost souls
Student loans, iPhones, reality TV shows
It shows a host of wise, but blind drones
Post Babylonia, so I’m told
Enter The Void - Joey Bada$$ ft. Ab-Soul (Ab-Soul’s Verse)
Can we just take a second to recognize the beauty of Ab-Soul’s verse, in specific these lines. Just damn.
