Your success can only be as big as its justification; the truth is that suffering is a part of life. The key is not to avoid suffering, but rather to find something worth suffering for.
I’ve been a student of hip-hop for nearly a decade now, and personally believe that I’m researched well enough to be entitled to my own opinion.
As a result, I’ve finally reached a conclusion on my top 20 emcees of all time to date, as of today, June, 23, 2016, with regards to originality (flow, style, content, etc), cultural influence (legacy longevity), and lyricism (complexity, vocabulary, storytelling, literary devices, and overall impressiveness), as opposed to record sales, categorized into 3 different sections; top 5, top 6-9, and top 10-20, each group in no particular order.
Check it out below, and let me know what you think.
Top 5: 2pac, The Notorious B.I.G., NAS, Eminem, JAY Z
Top 6-9: DMX, Canibus Music, Big Punisher, Big L (rapper)
Top 10-20: Tech N9ne, Immortal Technique, Jus Allah, Sadistik, Aesop Rock, Lil Wayne, Twista, André 3000, Del the Funky Homosapien, Busta Rhymes, NECRO OFFICIAL PAGE
If you don't live in the moment, you'll only find yourself in the perpetual pursuit of ever-fleeting happiness...
Do you, and let others do them - sometimes were so concerned with the progress of others that we neglect our own. That's their life. Just live yours to the fullest extent. Not everything is for you. Trying Everything is not doing everything. Because when you do everything, you end up doing the most, and not doing anything. You only waste your time trying to please others rather than yourself. We're all from different backgrounds; not everybody is gonna like the same things, much less, like you. We all have different values. Similarly, not everyone will like what you have to offer, but your job isn't to give a fuck, your job is to do you.
Sometimes we're so concerned with the final destination, we don't take the first step forward. Life is about the journey, not the destination. How can you expect to enjoy the fruits of your labor if you have yet to plant a seed?
