Many people might find it surprising to discover that I’m such a big fan of Lil Wayne. Maybe my delicate appearance (ha, sometimes) and soft voice have something to do with it but Lil Wayne definitely speaks to my violent, badass, rebel side. What I love about Lil Wayne is his confidence and the way he present himself through his lyrics. He may rap a lot about sex, money, and weed, but through the undertones of such lyrics you get a feel of his positive out look on life, his intelligence, and his massive ability to use puns and metaphors. Also, as I’m listening to him he’ll say something that make me laugh then he laughs at it too (so cute!). He’s such a jokester. Love him.
I especially love him in this interview and I think this quote is EPIC.
“I’m a gangster miss Katie…I don’t take nothing from no one. I do what I wanna do and I’m gonna do that until the day I die, and if I can’t do that then I’ll just die.” Lil Wayne
I can definitely relate and understand exactly what he’s saying as I’m the same way. I feel so prisoned and chained if I felt like I’ve been insulted or misunderstood and didn’t stand up for myself. Even when doing so will cause me embarrassment or discomfort. I have stood up to bosses, professors (kinda, lol), parents, women, old ladies, friends, and boys. I have gotten fired up because of it and left my own sorority but at least I know what I had to do which is NEVER TAKING SHIT FROM ANYONE NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE. Sometimes I feel like I won’t be able to express myself correctly or tackle the situation in the most intelligent way but I tell myself that It doesn’t matter and that I WILL NOT AND I WON’T go home until I know that I stood up for myself. Because really I won’t be able to continue living my life feeling like a (excuse the word) pussy, such feeling will make inadequate to perform even the simplest tasks in life. I gain my confidence from my ability to trust myself. And I urge you to do the same even If you feel that your voice is so weak it’s gonna break or that you’re breathing so hard you’re gonna die. DO IT! You own it to yourself.
So next time my professor asks me why I hadn’t turned in my paper, Imma be like “I a gangster miss Smith” ha. lol
