“It’s so hard to stay sucka free in a world full of lollipops”
DMX might be known for being crazy but he will always be one of the greatest MC’s in Hip Hop. This quote is one of my favorites because it discusses the problems with our generation. People need to stop following these lollipops and live their lives for themselves. I refuse to be mediocre and I will always be true to myself. Why? Because I respect the real in me and I refuse to get sucked by these vultures. How do people just let other people control their lives and use them? Is that the price we have to pay for the good life? If that’s so well I guess I’ll never live be able to live that life.
“So be advised, the streets is full of surprises. Its not what crew is the livest. One that survives is the wisest”
RIP to a great MC, BIG Pun. This quote deals with the people who are followers and want to follow the popular crowd. The streets have secrets too.In most cases the popular crowd is the one’s who don’t have their life together. They just fake a persona to convince people they are happy but cant find happiness within themselves.
I remember growing up everybody looked up to the stick up kids, gangstas and drug dealers. We didnt know or understand all the bullshit they had to go through and how many people they harmed in the process. We just knew they had all the money and we didnt.
Our generation needs to stop focusing on the so called “popular crowd and focus on improving our mind, body and spirit. Because the popular crowd is a false perception.We have to free are mind from what we think is reality and stop living with such a close ended mind.
Thats the only way we will be able to survive in this cold, corrupt world. Key word is SURVIVE.
“Those that trust no one usually end up trusting the wrong person”
I love me some Sister Soulja and I plan on doing a post about how she has affected my life.
Our generation is so stuck on not trusting anyone till we forget that we obviously need someone to trust in. We tend to believe that everyone is out to get us but who’s fault is that? Did society teach us to look at our fellow brothers and sisters as enemies? Yes there are vultures out there but we need to lift each other up and stop knocking the next man down.
Be cautious about who you trust and also who you allow to trust in you. Remember the law of attraction? Practice what you preach is so cliche but its the truth. Be loyal and in due time loyal people will attract to you.
“People hate it when you’re better than them. They ain’t hating, start worrying then.”
I love this quote because it expresses how normal it is for people to dislike you. It does not matter how nice you are or how hard you try to please someone, somebody out there still isn’t going to like you. So why not live your life according to you! You are doing something right if they can’t stand you because they see the potential in you that they can’t see in themselves. The worst part is that sometimes those haters are your closest friends, so be attentive. T.I. has came a long way and definitely has some inspirational quotes.
So Let them keep hating!!!! Nu Flava gonna keep it moving…

This is one of my favorite talented poetic sistas. Mrs. Shanelle gabriel is a soulful singer, a gifted writer, actress, and advocate for Lupus awareness. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she has displayed her skills at colleges and venues both nationally and internationally.
