Man, what the fuck would I do without my music. I'm trynna get my mind right to finish my (now late) Communications mid-term, but I'm just not interested. I put a few things in rotation to get me motivated, but my mind has started to wander. Here's what I've got in rotation:

Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Green Day. I LOVETH this shit.
Favorite line: "My shadow's the only one that walks beside me"
The journey I walk is definitely by my lonesome.

Retrospect for Life, Common ft. Lauryn Hill. Takes me back to a difficult period in mylife where I was struggling with my self image.
Favorite line: "Turnin this woman's womb into a tomb"
While denoting this line as my "favorite" is inaccurate, I find it to be a pivital moment in the song. That line echos in my subconscience: guilt, regret, frustration...all of that. I still feel it.

Unappreciated, Cherish. We've all been there. Taken for granted. Shit on. All that. I think I'll lose a few cool points for publicly admitting I like these chicks. I really don't want to, I promise.
Favorite line: "I use to give into your lust/ Now I see the truth"
I know, I know. Technically, this is two lines. Realistically, there isn't a line in this song that can be independant of one another and still convey the intended message. All I can say is: I saw the truth a long time ago, but took my time acting on it. Truth really does set you free.

Hip Hop, Dead Prez. I'm feelin these militant muhfukkas. They tellin ya'll some good shit.
Favorite Line: "Uh, who shot Biggie Smalls?/ If we don't get them, they gon' get us all/ I'm down for runnin' up on them crakkkas in they city hall!"
Again, more than one line, but this shit has an impact. Shake them muhfukkas down, niggaaaaaaas!

What You Know, T.I. Smooth and gully at the same time. Speaks to my inner gankstuh.
Favorite Line: "Somebody better get bruh fo' he get sent fo' " I'm just sayin. Niggas is seriously testin me. Patience's runnin thin...

You have two of my all-time favorite songs listed on here... 1. Retrospective for Life & 2. Hip Hop. I listen to them both religiously. Like you, that Retrospect song really takes me THERE... and I still feel it too.

Those two songs are part of my morning ritual. Gotta get my mind right (or as close as I can get to right) before I head to the office.
