We need music like this more, atleast i think. This reminds me of the days of jazz band where we would just groove, the music would just come alive. The old school feel and the reflecting lyrics are good enough for me to like this. Hope y'all enjoy it.

This is my favorite song on the album. The beat is crazy, it's in the key of C minor which I like to use and it's Kanye West, mml. Well done job on the video. The helicopter snap shot are unbelievable. To put it in one word to describe this single. Amazing.

Chasing the lifestyle you want can be detrimental if you are not careful. It goes back to early 2000 and on. Everybody wanted spinning rims on their car because it look hot and it showed a cool style for cars. Wrong, that was the stupidest idea I've ever seen. If you're stopping at a stop light and you're rims spin, you can't see your rims spin. You would have to get out the car and look at them, like, "yea what's up man? i know these are hot right.? yea, aight i got to get back in my car. peace." Just stupid. Then most of the people i know would have new weaves, buy a brand new car with the rims, go on shopping sprees and go out to fancy restaurants WHILE they are living with their parents not paying rent, not paying child support, have two ore three kids that are not taking care of and didn't even graduate high school. I'm like, chasing a lifestyle is crazy if you don't know your limits.
We all fall victim to the chasing, whether it was the watch in middle school everybody had to the spinning rims. Don't chase a lifestyle for other people's enjoyment or standards. It wouldn't be a lifestyle, a lifestyle is something you obtain for your life's enjoyment and attributions. It's ok to chase it, but don't chase knowing you're going to step back to fix it. Strive for it in the right sense. Earn the lifestyle while taking the things you have already. Chase the lifestyle, don't let it chase you.

Wow, i saw this today on Drake's blog and umm wow, she is bad. A cute girl with a beautiful voice, can't go wrong with that. And she's so peaceful, with the way i'm feeling, i don't care. I like this version better. MML, but seriously this is hot.
-If the answers are in front of your face, yet you're looking for more...
You're not realizing it.
-If you look at all of your bills and push em back til you're in super debt. But you still like, "Hey..shit happens"...
You're not realizing it.
-If Someone tells you no. Not the sweet not, but the stern ass no, like the no you were meant to take in..Yet you take it as a yes...
You're not realizing it.
-If you still aren't accepting any hardship in your life. Considering it a bad dream or some bullshit...
You're not realizing it.
-If you look at yourself into the mirror, and say you're everyone but who you really are....
You're not realizing it.
You have to pull that wool over your eyes and start looking into reality. it doesn't bite depending on what you have to deal with. I have come into terms with my reality. Will you join me on taking this journey?

If this isn't Maybach Music I don't know what Maybach Music is. The song is on the SAME LEVEL as the vehicle........HOLD ON this isn't even a vehicle its mobile PERSONAL SPACE!!!!! It's like the jet of automobiles.
The title speaks for itself "Don't Let Failure Too Far Away". Now, as you're reading this please take it in as MOTIVATION. I'm here to INFLUENCE the willing, and if your not willing I RESPECT that!
I now present to you "Don't Let Failure Too Far Away":
Many times in life people experience some form of FAILURE and if you haven't experienced it you'd be considered PERFECT. LOL! Side Note: No ones PERFECT we just like to take the road that leads to some form of PERFECTION! Failure can come in many forms, expected or unexpected. For some, failure is hard to accept and no one likes the idea of failing. Then there are those who "REALLY DON'T CARE" attitude and easily accept it. I'm reaching out to those who don't like failure and the ones who don't care about failure. If and when failure comes into your L.I.F.E, don't let it be the END ALL! Keep a firm hold on it, learn what you did or what you didn't do that led to it, make the difference, be the difference because folks there is opportunity for CHANGE. You stay close to what ever the failure was and with time, confidence, faith, and perseverance turn that failure right side up for the better. Let failure be a continuation of the story, not the end of one. Let "FAILURE TO SUCCESS" be the end result. I know deep down no one likes to fail, so I'm CHALLENGING you to take on the CHALLENGE of taking one of your "FAILURES TO SUCCESS"! The REALIST thing you can do is be HONEST to yourself and know that you are ABLE rather than NOT ABLE!
"STAY CLOSE, DON'T LET THE FAILURE OUT YOUR REACH, WITH CHANGE, THINK FAILURE TO SUCCESS"

we do things to better ourselves with time
sometimes it's the mind improves better inside
the life long lessons don't become second guessing
we feel what we do cause we sense our direction
you feeling up, somebody going down
you drinking a sip, they smoking by the pound
whatever it is, life is the immaculate altercation
of the problems that you facing with the intent that you sent for the bigger placement
Woo. can't get no better than that, and yes i use a double negative and i ended with a yes
better yourself for the moment that is life, today is tomorrow so you gotta live twice
three times, four times even cinco burritos can feel you up
but that beef that come with the cheese might get your shell tore up
lettuce it out with the green that you have in the field
money can come fake if you don't keep it real
but what is real? if you don't mind me asking
i've spend my whole life trying to find this passion
fruit of the harvest, loops thru the retarted
then ask a smart person, "you end up where you started"
so for this life, there's always love, women and men
you just got to know
Everyday Is An Improvement
Honesty is a big word folks. ;) I'm really digging it right now. "Honest" by Day26, WOW a HIT! I would put the link for yall up it I'm written from the berry sorry, but expect it later today.
A little promo second: "Forever In A Day" By Day26 IN STORES TODAY APRIL 14th!!!!

Now is Kanye the most overbooked? Yes sir
Though the fans want the feeling of A Tribe Called Quest
But all they got left is this guy called West
Better take Freeway, throw him on tracks with Mos Def
Call him Kwa-lI or Kwe-li, I put him on songs with Jay-Z
I'm the Gap like Banana Republic and Old Navy, and oooh
It come out sweeter than old Sadie
Nice as Bun-B when I met him at the Source awards
Girl he had with him - ass coulda won the horse awards
And I was almost famous, now everybody loves Kanye
I'm almost Raymond'
Some say he arrogant. Can y'all blame him?
It was straight embarrassing how y'all played him
Last year shoppin my demo, I was tryin' to shine
Every motherfucker told me that I couldn't rhyme
Now I could let these dream killers kill my self-esteem
Or use my arrogance as the steam to power my dreams
I use it as my gas, so they say that I'm gassed
But without it I'd be last, so I ought to laugh
So I don't listen to the suits behind the desk no more
You niggaz wear suits 'cause you can't dress no more
You can't say shit to Kanye West no more
I rocked 20,000 people, I was just on tour, nigga
I'm Kan, the Louis Vuitton Don
Bought my mom a purse, now she Louis Vuitton Mom
I ain't play the hand I was dealt, I changed my cards
I prayed to the skies and I changed my stars
I went to the malls and I balled too hard
'Oh my god, is that a Black Card?'
I turned around and replied, why yes but I prefer the term
African American Express
Brains, power, and muscle, like Dame, Puffy, and Russell
Your boy back on his hustle, you know what I've been up to
Killin y'all niggaz on that lyrical shit
Mayonnaise colored Benz, I push Miracle Whips
Kanye West- "Last Call"
This Serenity Prayer speaks volumes, I really like it.
Right now I'm on a whole mission of "Influence", DTB influencing the willing.
Is: "Your like a summer breeze with sunshine, yes you are" the TRUTH, a LIE, an OPINION? It could be all 3 but its only thing depending on who its coming from and what the person wants to make it

Day26 is really flipping the script and creating a total different meaning of "Truth". "Truth" is now a "Lie"? Well I dig the twist and I myself enjoy just flipping things around. Until then, I'll let the song marinate my mind and try to find that connection.
truth: honesty; integrity; truthfulness
lie: a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth
Also note- This is the first song I've actually hard Que having parts. That's what happens when your in the studio! lol

Strong but does have weaknesses
Fast can take it Slow
Considerate but can be selfish
Wild but can be quiet
Hard-headed but takes in advice
Lover but can be a fighter for someone special
Leader but can follow orders
Hard but has a soft spot
Compassionate but recently heartless
A singer but can be a Rapper
Complex never simple
Crazy never careless
Open never closed
Always out never stuck in one place
give 100% never 50%
Harmonic never one-noted
Dapper never sloppy
Focused never far from the mission
Made his mistakes never flawless
A Renaissance Man never just Dan
A free spirit never a prisoner
This is me..The man..The myth..the truth..early
Is it her body?
Shorty ask me to do something, gets done before her heartbeat
But a dude asks me 2 go do something, I'm Like, "He got 2 feet"
I Don't do shit 4 the homies: that motto is so crazy
Females are so different cuz i do it 4 the ladies
They got this hard shell, gettin soft on the inside like caramel
When will I say no 2 a girl? only time will tell
When they stop lookin beautiful
When they quit with those looks
When they stop with those "Thank You Dan" that gets me hooked
It is what it is. Jus take what's given.
I'm really not complaining, I'm jus living
Put a smile on her face when she havin a bad day
Top her off with some laughter, I do it that way.
If she needs a superman, I'll come a runnin
The duties of a gentleman, but I'll get what's comin
Cuz they my only Kryptonite, a damsel in distress
It's really tough job, n I sometimes need some rest.
But I'll never stop treatin girls the way I do
Unless you disrespect me, then it's no love for you.
This is all true story, if it might sound crazy.
I Go the Fuck In when i do it for the ladies

It has always been intentions throughout my life to honest with people and with myself. I found honesty is the best quality to have but sometimes conflicted. Certain situations with people seem to have to bend the truth. Classic example, "Honey, does this make look fat?" To be honest, "yes it does". To not hurt the woman's feelings, "no baby, you look great." With honesty, there's a respect factor. The truth can hurt people feelings sometimes; honesty starts playing with your personality. Honesty can sometimes mean to deviate the truth. How to say something without hurting people's feelings, how to re-word statements but also get the point across.
Real, has been the most conflicting topic of people's lives. "How to be real with yourself and others" a title that stays unanswered to some. A person who is real with themselves does not care about what about other people think. It is their own personal drive that they feed off. No other person can take it or change it. A real person can walk to a stranger and say, "i don't like you, you look like Jim Carrey on crack." Harsh and cruel (funny too), it was honest and straightforward. Sometimes people can be too real where they don't really care. The respect factor can tainted in all sorts of ways. "When keeping it real goes wrong" (funny chappelle's skit). But honesty plays into being real. A person couldn't be real if they weren't honest with themselves.
In conclusion, draw your own conclusion. Seriously, I have thought about this too long and hard. Sometimes I ask myself am I being totally real with other people. The respect factor plays again into my mind. Don't forgot there's also people who are "fake" or "acting like they are real". That's a whole another subject in itself. But besides that, the point of this is ask for honest/real opinions. As being one third of this blog, this is still ADD blog. We add things we like on here and the public can add comments/insights. I want your honest/real opinions about this. A subject like this can be deep or can be solid viewed. My own person conclusion is it's better to be real most the time but honest for people. You have to be real with yourself before you can be real with others. Be real with yourself then SHOW real by honesty. It all depends on what type of real you are and what honesty you show.

Today is Marvin Gaye birthday, I though I could celebrate his birthday with some performances of his best known songs. Though I was born before he died, growning up listen to his music has enough impact on me to love soul music. Truth be told, I think a lot of people before and after me weren't made possible if it wasn't for this man's music. For that, I pay my respects to Mr. Marvin Gaye, his family and his legagy. Happy Birthday Mr. Marvin Gaye
