Yo! What’s goodie internet fam!? So I’ve been gone for a minute but, I’m back and ready to write! I have so many topics to touch on I don’t know what to post about first! Well let me say this, I haven’t been feeling so motivated to write lately so this is kind of like a big deal!
Anyway, continue to send those requests… I’m doing my best to get to them all!
Get Smart. I’m be tired sometimes. But I’m Back Now!
So, I mentioned on one of my many abandoned blogs out there in internet-land that my people at Brooklyn Entertainment wanted to interview me for their new interview series titled “Who Are You Again?” I laughed when I was asked if I would do so because last time I checked no one knows who BKNY is! Not to throw shade or anything, I’m just saying… Well, anyways here is the interview. When they post it up I’ll paste the link… By the way, my most favorite person at BKNY Entertainment: YP (Young Persona) did the interview shout out to him!
YP: So exactly who are you again?
Unknwn: Well just say my blogger name and you’ll know.
YP: Why do you call yourself “Unknwn” ?
Unknwn: Let’s put it this way…no one really knows who I am but instead of informing people about me and all that, I rather just be unknown. On top of that, you know I had to put my “special touch” on it, so I took out the letter “o”
YP: Where are you trying to go with this whole blog thing?
Unknwn: I actually don’t know. I would like to be getting paid for what I do…I will…one day. Probably in a few years I will be doing some bigger things in New York or something. That is if I’m still alive!
YP: Still alive?
Unknwn: Yea, you never know when it’s gonna be your last day. You know?
YP: Definitely. So tell me one thing you think your readers don’t know about you.
Unknwn: That I’m not a guy. (laughs) I’ve heard that some of the things I talk about and in some of my posts I sound really masculine. I just have a lot to say and I love to talk about all kinds of stuff.
YP: Are you going to try to make your self appear more feminine?
Unknwn: Definitely not. I am who I am. Get with it or get lost…ya dig? (laughs) just kidding. I’ll try to post some more “feminine” entries, whatever that means…
YP: Well our interview is coming to an end. I just have one last question. What are three things you would like to blog about but don’t?
Unknwn: (laughs) I should show you all of the drafts I have! I write stuff all the time. However, I read them and think “nobody is gonna read this!” then move on to something else. As to your question my three things would be:
I think all three of those I have attempted to talk about but, I just don’t think I’m an expert at it right now…maybe in the future, just not now.
YP: Thanks for the interview, here’s your time to plug your stuff!
Unknwn: not much to plug…just subscribe to my blog please! Even though I haven’t been writing much… I take requests too so just hit up gradienteyes.wordpress.com and leave a comment on any post and I’ll reply and even give you a shout out! That’s all…I don’t do enough to truly plug my stuff (laughs) All I gotta say is send me topics and I’ll talk about ’em! Each and every one of them!!
If you don’t know what M.O.B means then consider yourself lucky. If you do know, then let’s elaborate on the unfortunate concept. First off, should it even be considered a concept? I think it has some validity but does it cross over to “offensive-land” at times? I have so many questions, I could fill this post with just questions surrounding M.O.B. But, I am just going to touch on one thing: is money over bitches a smart way to live or just offensive?
Let the topic begin!
Okay, so I have been thinking to myself that money is worth a lot to many people but, there are a bunch of other stuff people value. When you tat yourself up with M.O.B. you’re almost saying, “screw everyone else I’m getting paid…” which is kind of good but also offensive to the people who may care about you. I personally love money but that’s because I have a shopping addiction. No for real, I think I am addicted to shopping! So without money, I pretty much would go into a massive mental breakdown. Anyways, this post isn’t about shopping. Maybe the next one will be about shopping…Okay back to the topic! If I were to say I am about money over bitches then I am saying a few things:
1. I like women (if you call women bitches)
2. I’m getting money
3. All I care about is money
I’m not even gonna get into what I said for number 1. I’m going to admit that I refer to some chicks as bitches but I don’t use it as a general term. I’m not that disrespectful. Ha, see how I phrased that, I am still admitting my disrespectful-ness. I’m not the nicest person alive…Anyways, my point is that a lot of guys I know say “it’s money over bitches” but, I doubt they understand what they are really saying.
Let’s look at it like this. You shouldn’t let anyone knock your hustle. By saying its money over females then you’re saying no “young bop” is gonna get in the way of your hustle. (I apologize for the slang-heavy sentences.) In regular English, this translates to not letting personal affairs affect your finances. That sounds pretty smart right? BUT! When you say “bitches” what does that imply? This is where things start to get offensive. I wouldn’t want anyone calling me a bitch unless I am acting like one. So, should we say its money over everyone? Well, it doesn’t have that swing and sass anymore. Where am I going with this? I have no clue!
All I have to say is, if you say M.O.B. Get Smart and think about the true meaning behind it. But, most likely if you’re saying it in the first place, you can’t even think that deep about anything more than the next Jordan release at Foot Locker. Ha. Boom. Get Smart Y’all.
Yes, yes I know this is primarily a music blog but, check it: this is my blog so I can post whatever I want. Boom. Please take no offense on the “boom” if you are from San Francisco and know what that means. I am simply ranting in this post.
Let the rant begin!
I am so sick and tired of people with bad attitudes. I am not going to disclose the person I am referring to but, seriously, life gets rough sometimes just shut up and deal with it. Things only have meaning when you give them meaning. Existentialism. Get Smart. In other words, when you start giving certain negative aspects in your life meaning, you are bound to suffer along with that negativity. But you can pay it no mind and move on, that way you are not dedicating your life to trippin off of every bad thing. I’ll use myself as an example. I’m not always happy with my life. Heck, I’m sitting here posting on a blog that hardly anyone reads! Am I trippin off of that? H-E-Double Hockey Sticks No! I don’t even think about how much my life sucks at times (because it does suck at times!) I think about the future and what is going to make me happy. I think about moving to NYC in the near future, my major in college, how I’m going to build the “Unknwn” brand, and other great things I’m trying to accomplish. To make a long story short, life sucks sometimes….get over it. Everything is temporary so don’t waste time trippin off of unhappy things.
Get Smart. Get Happy. Live Life.
I have been obsessively playing a copy of Drake’s Thank Me Later for the past week so it is only proper that I do a review of the CD. How I obtained the CD, don’t worry about it, but put it this way, I just went out and actually bought it. Did I say I bought it? Yes! Go buy Drake’s CD; he did an excellent job considering the garbage that so-called “artists” put out nowadays.
Thank Me Later starts out with one of my favorite tracks, “Fireworks” featuring Alicia Keys.
Take a listen here! Fireworks By Drake ft. Alicia Keys
Sounds good huh? Wait, there’s more! Drake continues to “build up a better rapport…” with stimulating tracks like “Karaoke” and “Show Me A Good Time”. “Over”, “Fancy”, “Find Your Love”, and now “Miss Me” featuring the Young Money King himself: Lil Wayne have been played numerously on the radio so when I heard them on Thank Me Later I already knew the words. Knowing the words to these songs set off the perfect balance between the known and the unknown.
As for the other seven tracks I have failed to mention, I am absolutely speechless. You know why? Because every single song on Drake’s brilliant showcase of talent that we call a CD, I love! I enjoyed every song. Surprising but, true. Sometimes I’m lucky to even find three or four decent songs on an artist’s CD so when I listened to Thank Me Later, I was expecting the same yet received the opposite.
I can proudly say, GO BUY THAT DAMN CD Y’ALL…
