I’m doing much much better now compared to 2 months or even 2 weeks ago, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Sometimes the only thing I had was music to keep me going. Here’s some of my recent favorites that strike me in my soul. I hope you like them too.
Isaiah Rashad, w/ SZA – Heavenly Father
Look now, I’m praying that I make it twenty-five
They be calling doctors for my health
And “no” is kinda hard to say to drugs
I been having problems with myself
And I been asking questions, where the love?
And they don’t give me answers, just a check
Noname – Shadowman, w/ Smino, Saba, Phoelix
I hope that darkness keeps you well When I can’t fall asleep at night I blindly taught myself to fight Aw shadow man shadow box, please keep your hands up And if you get knocked down don’t forget to stand up
Funeral home lookin like a home that I used to live in You wasn’t supposed to go so soon I took it for granted Maybe we’ll meet the next life, maybe another planet Open my soul but then it’ll end with an open casket
Uh ay Tippy toe on a tightrope Leaning on green and it gon be a dice roll I’m feenin a feline who mindset Afeni I got two packs for us
Jamila Woods – Holy
Though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no love Oh my smile my mind reassure me I don’t need no one
Woke up this morning with my mind set on loving me
Ye, the bad days may come The lover may leave The winter may not Hey, the map of your palms The temple you be You’re all that you got
Anderson .Paak – The Dreamer, w/ Talib Kweli
This one’s for all the little dreamers And the ones who never gave a fuck I’m a product of the tube and the free lunch Living room, watching old reruns And who cares your daddy couldn’t be here? Mama always kept the cable on
No rabbit in a hat. It ain’t no magic, ain’t no Copperfield More like a panther, Huey Newton, Bobby Seale Word to the free lunch. Who knew what we would become?
