Man...I was fortunate enough to go to the Kanye West "Glow In The Dark Concert" last night. First, let me start by saying..our seats were absolutely ridiculous. Staples Center. 30 thousand plus. Floor Seats. Center. 10 rows back. And that was my first big concert experience, so the bar is raised pretty high as for as experiences go. Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D, and Rianna opened up for Kanye.
Kanye's performance was so dope. I've always been a K West fan, but after seeing his show live, and really hearing him spit the lines he spits in person along with seeing his energy. I became a fan again.
On the music tip, I can really relate to a lot of the stuff he says. Look, people, when you're as passionate about something as a person like Kanye is...there's nothing anyone can do to knock you off your path. Like Lil Weezy said "Coach, they won't knock me off my pivot, forget it".
I always say "I can't knock your hustle". Even if it's something I don't agree with, if you're hustling with a passion doing something you really love, I can't knock it. A lot of people have opinions about what I do and how I should do it. But when you're focused, I mean REALLY focused, it doesn't matter what people think. Because you see something they don't. And you may not have time to stop and explain it, but you'll eventually show them.
Kanye performed "I Wonder". And the hook goes ..."and I wonder if you know what it means, to find your dreams". If you watched him perform and his passion and listened to the words, you actually SAW what it looked like for a person to have their dream. He is doing what he absolutely LOVES to do and gets paid for it. That's a goal all people strive to achieve. I am on that same path. Times get tough. Things are never as easy as planned, but at the end of the day...I love what I do. And I think everybody should do the same.
In closing, I came across this video of Kanye. Whether you like him or not, just listen to what he's saying and realize that when you're on your grizzy like you should be, and you BELIEVE in yourself like you should...you can't be stopped.
