I am OFF today.
That should be enough to freestyles right there. We can just end that.
The only thing that would make it better was if today was payday. Yep.
But alas it ain't.
LadyTee's birthday is on Monday, but she wanted to celebrate today. I am fine with that. It is Friday, and I can have a proper three day weekend. We are going to go see Insurgent.
I hope it's good! The last one was a Hunger Games lite. So I expect the same from this one.
One of my coworkers, a youngster at work, is an extra in this movie. She told me where to look for her. When I see her, I'm going to stand up and clap.
I am proud of young Kels. She takes her acting classes and she's an extra in a few things. I look for her.
We are going to eat at South City Kitchen, one of Atlanta's best restaurants.
I expect to drop $100 easy. I hope no more than $200. It get that high, I do believe we just need to sneak up out of there. I got the cheese, but something wrong with spending that much on dinner. But I see several entrees I want to sample. So bring our food. And some to go boxes. We will be using those...
...When we sneak up outta there.
So... some CRAZY stuff happen this week. Something I can't really say, because it is too doggone deep. I am still trying to absorb and understand it.
But something else happen.
KENDRICK LAMAR DROPPED HIS ALBUM THIS WEEK.
*ladylee bunny hops all around the room... forever and ever*
So... on Sunday a third single came out. I listened to it early in the day, but I wanted to listen to it later that night through my headphones. It had disappeared though.
Awwwww. Musta been a leak.
I went to bed. I woke up to check my phone for the time. And there was the WHOLE playlist of the album from Spotify.
You know when you stand up too fast... and not enough blood reaches your head in time... and you feel all faint.
That was me.
I ran into the living room... The cats didn't know what was going on. (I was yelling GIT OUT DA WAY, Sister Callie! Move your slow tail, Mitch!! MOVE!).
I frantically hooked my phone up to my surround sound speakers in the living room, and I heard....
Poor cats. You could see the look in their eyes as they stared at me doing my high rockette kicks and wonder woman spins. "Mornings... they are usually filled with gospel music and prayer... what is this ratchetness LadyLee is playing?"
It ain't gospel, but far from ratchet. Some black power, angry, despair loveliness.
I didn't think dude could top Good Kid, Mad City. But doggonit, he did it.
It is mecurial. It is organic. It is angry. It is everything.
It is not trap music. You can't twerk and be a hoe to it.
If I was a rapper about to release something after this dude did. I would just delete it... and start over. Or just go away.
If I was the President.
I'd pay my Mama's Rent.
Free all my homies and dem
Bulletproof my Chevy doors,
Lay in the White House and get high
Oh Lord, who ever thought Massa'd take the chains off me!!!
*ladylee does Wonder woman spin*
I washed my hands, I said my grace
What more do you want from me?
Tears of a clown, guess I'm not all that was meant to be.
Shades of grey would never change, if I condone
Turn this page, help me change
To right my wrong.
Maaaan... this is some grown folks music. Rare for me to have an album I can listen to from top to bottom. He even interviews Tupac at the end. *flatlines*
Thank you, Kendrick!!! Whoooo chile... thank you.
man... Ya'll will NOT take this dude's grammy this time. Nope. You will not. You will not.
My mind and heart is still on FLEEK. Maybe I will calm down soon.
That's it for me. I have run out of time. Gotta get up and go get LadyTee so we can get our Thelma and Louise thing on. Minus that crazy ending. LOL.
You have a great weekend. On purpose.
Where I've Been... Summer Joy and More - As I have gotten older I have come to LOVE Summer. The hot and hazy days, bare feet, sun dresses and getting blacker! Going to Jamaica was my reset. Hones...
