Real Hip Hop

by bjones

I was in love once, about three years ago. It was with a special person for about a year, and that particular year was a year of extreme mental growth for me. I’ve had a relationship fall apart horribly once, this was about one year ago. I was with a not so special person for about nine months and that period of time was by far the most extreme mental period of growth that I have ever had in my life. When I was in love, I learned that true love is the epitome of success a person can achieve. I learned that love is hard to find and when you have it, you should cherish it. I learned that love is more than physicality, but rather it’s a mentality. Man, I learned so much. When I had the “not so good” relationship, I learned that you can’t create love when it isn’t there. I was taught that the preservation of personal pride and matters of the heart don’t work well together. The most important lesson I took away from that experience is that you must love yourself enough to end a relationship that is tearing you down and be okay with being alone, and yes at times lonely. You see in 2008, everyone seems to have given up on love, but not me! I’ve seen the best and the worst love has to offer, and I still believe in it. Some might call me foolish but that’s nothing new. I know that love isn’t just a feeling, or an emotion. I know that love isn’t a touch or a kiss. I know that love is a risk that one takes with another person. When you truly love someone you risk your pride being shattered, your heart being broken, and your psyche being tarnished. Love is a lifestyle, it’s a way of thinking. I challenge you to give love a try, it could change your life.........Talieb talks rhymes about what love means to him in the 13th track title Love Language off of the album Train of Thought. He talks about the power of love and what it can do in a peron’s life, both good and bad. Check out the verse if you like what you read and can relate go buy the album and investigate this love thing.

Free Your Mind & The Rest Will Follow, Big Bob

Love is blind, you just see bright light
You up in the club feelin' the night life, lookin' for the right type
Blood rushing to your heart making it beat
When she swept you off your feet and made it complete
You know the plan you had to conquer the world
Thinking you Scarface, looking for that perfect girl
And now you found her
Started with romantic, then got to frantic
Then things thats normally small become gigantic
Now y'all sinkin like the Titanic here come the panic
Bein with you like a habit without you I can't stand it
It's tragic when you wonder when you lost that magic
Without understanding that you never had it try to grab it
In the bed gettin a nut off, communication cut off
Getting mad cause you turned or wondering where she shut off
Constantly comparing you to someone in my past
We don't smile anymore, and we argue over cash
Advance to that physical shit
See what happens if you keep talkin
See what happens if you lay a finger on me motherf...
Yo, see what I'm sayin'
It's like one big mind game that everybody playin and
Niggas say bitches is trife, bitches say niggas is
We just don't understand our fundamental differences
I'm still learning though, actually
I just do what come naturally, naturally, naturally

This reminds me of that saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". Love definitely makes people stronger with all of its complications and drama.
