What sealed the deal though was Wale’s song “Lucky Me” off of his Hate Is The New Love Mixtape. This tape dropped while I was dipping my toe in the pool of deep thought & planning my escape from the matrix. I realized we had a lot in common from having immigrant parents to residing on Peabody Street in Washington, DC. I also felt a personal connection due to him residing in Montgomery County for similar reasons; because our parents felt that was best for our education and development of cultural consciousness.
Now I’m saying all of this to ask, what does @MeekMill mean @Wale isn’t MMG? Because he isn’t fabricating his street life? Because he doesn’t glorify the things that would make his mother shout? Because he feels more valuable as an advocate for our black women as opposed to pimping them? Because he writes poetry?
I can honestly say that I have not listened to any of @MeekMill’s full projects. I’m not necessarily interested; I’ve heard it all before I am sure. No new perspectives or intelligence to learn from.
Thanks for reading!
