You are dope, and you do dope shit
It’s five minutes to five in the morning and I’ve been up since 02:30 am. To be honest, I am pretty under the weather and in between a house cold and general fatigue.
It’s times like this that you function on some sort of reserve energies and you quickly realise what a body is capable of even under times of exhaustion. However, it still ain’t easy and soon it’s sunrise and the day starts again. Meh…
I will never forget a line I heard on a video interview where one of the music industry’s figures discusses a time when Kayne West was a nobody. The guy obviously has an ego but heck, whether or not you like him or his music; some of the lines that come out of his mouth will be remembered forever.
If my memory serves me right, Kayne was in a studio securing his future career and answered the phone (all the big industry players are there) when he receives a phone call.
Apparently, the caller quickly realized Kayne was too busy for him and disgruntled by Kayne wanting off the call; lead to Kayne answering him and consequently hanging up afterwards:
Why?!?!!? Because I’m dope and I do dope shit. Kayne West
I’ll never forget this line and neither will the crew that were present on the day. A star was born.
So on a day like today, and possibly you are having one very similar, remember this.
He also said “My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.” Funny guy.
