Homecoming: The Yearly Progress Report

People attend their respective college’s Homecoming for various reasons. It’s a time where you can reflect on the road that you traveled to your present avenue. Most attend just to see old friends and have genuine laughs. There are others who come simply to “flex”. The ones who flex usually have a direct/indirect reasoning behind the behavior. Is it that they are over compensating for something? Is it to make a certain person jealous, or craving the spotlight? Or, is the person really that successful and really wants to have a good time no matter the cost? What is the definitive line that separates the actual lifestyle from the artificial lifestyle for a weekend?
What’s really cool?

The Loyalty Clock

Everyone really wants to claim the title of a “real” person. The title of being called, Real, seems to provide validity over so many lives. At what point does the Real concept becomes a question of stupidity? It’s many people in our society, no matter the race, put their lives in jeopardy for the sake of others just gain the the title of “Real”. What is the validity of loyalty measured against? Fake? Situational loyalty? What is the breaking point to which you have to decide to be a loyal person or loyal to yourself? The struggle of being a sacrificial lamb versus the one sacrificing the lamb has a ball of confusion on classifying a person. Thoughts?

 

 

 

 

What A Time To Be Alive

Drake & Future tape, “What A Time To Be Alive”, has the Hip Hop scene Boomin’. Some people feel like it could have been better. Others feel that this project is¬†mirroring Jay and Kanye’s “Watch The Throne” ¬†or Birdman and Wayne’s “Like Father Like Son” album. Personally, it seems like in order to make quality music for the fans, you have to collaborate with other artists just to make a classic tape. Each artist can stand on their own without question but does that cause a debate on who is the better artist when they collab? It is similar to the NBA with all these outrageous trades. Prime example, Lebron left for Miami and got two rings with D. Wade and Chris Bosh. He then went back to Cleveland and put up numbers but then lost overall. Can Future or Drake get to the top with and without each other? Both are hot, but numbers don’t lie.
