Kevin Gates put out a new album called The Ceremony on December 1, 2023; a photo of his back tattoos with the focus being on "WELCOME". Have you ever listened to his music? When I ask if you've listened, I don't mean jam out in the car. I mean have you listened hovered over a laptop as if you are studying with the lyrics pulled up on a separate page simultaneously so you don't miss anything he is saying? I have. It's the only way I listen to music.
There's some music that deadens your mind, and then there's some music that tells a story if you pick through it with a fine tooth comb.
"Birds calling (Hello?)
I hear the work calling (Brrr)
Only Generals are going to understand, and that's why the general public misunderstands.
"Get right, oh, oh, satellites
Don't wanna fall in love, you should run for your life"
The last memory that I have in Walmart, I was standing in the self checkout line holding nothing but a box of huggies wipes as a man looked over his shoulder nervously at me whilst scanning his canned soup. That's all that was in his buggy; cans and cans of soup.
Did I find a winner in Walmart?
Did that man just absolutely love canned soup?
Today, I decided that it's none of my business. It doesn't matter.
I don't need to know why. I don't need to assume. I don't need to understand.
I can just be thankful that I don't have to eat soup everyday.
I can be thankful for the people who smile at me.
I can be thankful for the people that love me.
I can be thankful to be alive.
I can be thankful to feel.
911, what's your emergency?
I might as well face it, I'm addicted to love.
