Now I Just Stunt on My Own

Everyday is a like a holiday so we celebrate. ~ Wiz Khalifa

The title and the quote are from rapper Wiz Khalifa. If you look at my tag cloud, I have Lil Wayne, Lil Tunechi (also Lil Wayne), and now Wiz. One of the most helpful books that I ever read was written by Russell Simmons, founder of Def Jam.

In it, Simmons, outlines the 12 rules of Spiritual Success that he learned over the years. I will be honest and admit that I stopped reading after the 4th law…

The 4th Law, was simply explained as “Do You” and Simmons discusses how rappers spit about who they are, where they are from, with such pride and confidence. I like the analogy in that I write about the world from my own view, which is hugely impacted by my “hood” of Hawaii Nei.   I may be a Hawaii local but music is global and I like to look at it like I am a global local these days.  I got to give credit where credit is do and that goes to the beautiful music that is Hip-Hop.

Ever since adopting a “Do You” mentality, I have discovered how much I like elements of my personality, made peace with the less glamorous parts, and well, just feel pretty darn good.  Big thanks to Uncle RUSH and all the cats in the hip-hop scene whose music has inspired generations and the whole world.

I may be doing alot of stuntin’ on my own these, everyday feels like a holiday to me so I celebrate it!!!

Chee huu to all of You.
