My thoughts must be relaxed, be able to maintain, cause times have changed and life is strange…”
I wanna have me a phat yacht, and enough land to grow my own cess crops. But for now it’s just a big dream, cause I find myself in the place where I’m last seen…”
It’s tough not to get excited about the future, especially when everything is starting to look up, so I have to constantly remind myself to stay grounded and focus on the present. I often let my mind drift with daydreams of grandeur, that I occasionally lose sight of what’s going on in my life at this very moment. I’m so lucky and feel so blessed to be surrounded by the people I associate myself with and work with that I have to remember to embrace the present while building towards the future. I know that I want everything so bad and as fast as possible that I forget how much hard work it takes to get the top. Fortunately, everyone I know works their ass off at what they do, and I constantly draw inspiration and humility from them and force myself to work harder and smarter for everything I’ve always wanted. It can be a slow process to get where you want to be in life, but I’d rather grind hard myself and reap the benefits than have everything handed to me on a silver platter. This has always been one of my favorite Wu joints, Ghostface’s verse is arguably my favorite of all time. I have always loved that raw emotion in hip-hop and no one brings it realer than Ghost. I frequently go back to this track whenever I’m in need of inspiration or need to refocus on my life.
