GetAtMe #RealTalk “TurnDownForWhat”
Man todays hip hop is crazy. Just a minute ago yall was telling us to turn up (yeah I’m getting old) and now It’s turn down for what (ain’t that the same thing as turn up #IJS). These terms come and go in this day of twitter moments and IG moments. Social media has created enough catch phrases that have defined a generation. This generation wants it (or do they really just want to look like they want it hmmmmm.)
This new generation lives life like they’re in a indy race with their lifestyle changing with each lap (#Vroom Vroom). I mean this new hip hop lives to change. They have become a society morphers (is that a word? I don’t know but it sounded like it belonged there) and that’s what it is. They like living life in the fast lane and like they say, why slow up? Why not live your life to the fullest? Why not party all weekend in Vegas? Why not own the world. And you know what, that’s sort of cool.
I love people who go for their dreams (I’m a dreamer), Steve Jobs was a dreamer. Bill Gates was a Dreamer, Barack Obama was a dreamer. Russell Simmons was a dreamer. Lebron James was a dreamer. Mark Cuban was a dreamer and Daymon Johns was a dreamer. You know being a dreamer is not a bad thing to be and it’s really good company. What all those dreamers had in common is that they “Turned Down” for no one. They went for it. They fought for it, worked for it and hustled for it. At no moment did they see the option of turning down. So maybe that’s a new success rule, “if you want to be successful turn down for no one”. Make them be accountable for their pessimism and know that this is your journey and it up to you to Turn Up for your success and opportunities. So like these folks are saying. “TurnDown4What” and I agree.
