"My conscience fuck with me so much that I can’t eat or sleep. The other side is selling dope & out here runnin’ the streets. And even though I’m gaining street fame coming from this rap game, lustful thinking & compulsive drinking is a normal thang. Some get erased & misplaced tryin to win the race. Some try to hold on to their place by smoking with lace. But see, drugs & plastic thugs ain’t gon’ change the hood, I’m smoking that skunk & popping that trunk to make me feel good." — Pimp C (RIP, Dec. 4, 2007) #hiphop #classic #emcee #music #art #life

“Confusion is a gift from God. Those times when you feel most desperate for a solution, sit. Wait. The information will become clear. The confusion is there to guide you. Seek detachment and become the producer of your life.” —RZA

This blessed my soul today.
