Alright, I don’t usually listen to rap. It’s not that I dislike it, it’s just not my favorite genre and I usually find myself listening to more rock-driven music. I’ve always enjoyed rap, I just have to be in a certain mood for it to resonate. (I guess I’m too busy listening to metal, post-punk, and funk.) Every once in a while I’ll go through a phase where I like listening to rap for a couple weeks or so, then I go back to listening to my usual music.
A few days ago I discovered Zauntee. I felt his music resonated with me right off the bat, and I’ve enjoyed his music enough to write my next music post about him. (That’s saying a lot.) Now, considering I don’t listen to a ton of rap, I don’t know much about the technical side of it. Maybe a lot of you will disagree with me on this. I have no idea. I just like his music, and I’ve been listening to it a lot lately.
With all the juggling of projects, my constant determination and moving forward, this song is pretty fitting. I've been pushing myself a lot lately, it's tiring, but at the end of the day I love being busy and I'm excited about the process.
I also love hearing about young and ambitious people working towards a greater purpose. It's motivating and exciting to see them make an impact in the world. (This is exactly what keeps me doing CORE even when I question whether or not it's worth it.) I love what Zauntee is doing and I have a feeling he's going to grow in popularity pretty quickly.
I wrote about learning to let go. It's difficult because I find myself in a place where I feel torn. Often I think what should be a good trait of mine can hold me back. It's not just letting go of people, it's anything that doesn't compliment my focus in life. If I don't need it, then I should probably cut it out of my life for a while.
