I’m tryna reach Valhalla. Tryna align all my chakras. I’m an inch away from relapse and a skip away from drama. But I don’t quell my problems. I’m attacking them instead. I think I’ve reached a point I’m manifesting what is said and all it took was ten years of my life to get ahead. I feel a power in me.
Indescribable. At best,
it’s like good energy just showers over me.
It feels like nothing in this world can stop me short of death.

Jay-Z’s The Blueprint was released on this day 18 years ago and a lot of the tracks on the album are now considered classic. I’m showcasing the video for “Song Cry” because it tells a very personal tale of love and how things change in a relationship as you reach different levels of success.
“I never wanted to kill myself
Just end a part of me
And never got a chance to heal myself
So it’s a part of me
It’s me if you wonderin’ who I’m at war with
Old version of me, sitting by dormant
It bleeds, all over me”
And I know you like to keep your emotions buried. I know you’re scared that your time has passed.
But you been drumming in my rhymes. The percussion in each line is a function of your time as Dad. This my Jazz.
