Famous rappers create our culture. Some of the things they say can change your life. Do not miss them, bro.
These 5 lessons from Snoop Dogg get the both sides of the medal. On one hand you should and must be yourself. On the other – you got to do stuff to make people respect you and live give you what you deserve.
“You don’t get respect, if you don’t deserve it.”
“You might not have a car or a big gold chain, stay true to yourself and the things will change.”
“Do what you feel is right, baby.”
“There’ll be ups and downs, smiles and frowns.”
“Sometimes a loss is the best thing that can happen. It teaches you what you should have done next time.”
These next 3 lessons are priceless for young people. Do not let anyone be your leader, but become the best at anything you do. That’s the champs’ religion. And if you do not want to get stuck in life, press on!
“Be your own leader, be your own self, step out of my shadows and be your own person.”
“If it’s flipping hamburgers at McDonald’s, be the best hamburger flipper in the world. Whatever it is you do you have to master your craft.”
“If you stop at general math, you’re only going to make general math money.”
Finally, these thoughts are liberating! No need to fight with others and prove you are the best. You are good to be who you are, just give love and do not forget where you come from.
“My liberty is about living. It's about spreading more love. Even though I was always a peaceful, loving individual, my music sometimes didn't reflect that. But now it's different. My music is reflecting the way I feel.”
“That’s how we do it in the black community; we give back to the people who made us who we are. We never forget that.”
If you are smart enough to learn these lessons early in life, you can go a long way from where you are now.
