To all of you who are going through some issues right now. If I could see you right now I would say "man you are so dope." Dope meaning cool, dope meaning I appreciate you for being alive and what you bring. You just being there and being yourself. That's the number one thing.
It’s okay to not be okay. Stay true to yourself and respect yourself. If you might not have a therapist, just put it out there. Truth helps. Tell people how your really feel and people can help you with whatever you're going through. Speak your piece.
If you've got someone that supports you and cares about you, feel them out. See your fan base, see the people that support you. Realize that it's people that love you, real people, people with gold teeth, people that's fat, people that got dreadlocks, people that got spiky hair, somebody with leather boots, it doesn't matter. Each of us has a support base that we can reach out to. Each person, one person, can push you so far, and push your dreams and what you really believe in. You're never alone. Remember that.
Don’t compare yourself to others. You are beautiful and amazing and very special. Remember that. Don’t forget to appreciate, and take a deep breath in and appreciate the air. Look at yourself and see how far you've come. See the beauty of being alive, of being able to grow and evolve everyday. Everyday is a new experience that makes you to who you are. Be happy to learn. Be excited just to live, appreciate life for what it is.
You can meditate. I look at meditation like different things. Like being humble. It's a meditative practice to be humble. That's a big thing, going outside, smelling earth, smelling the smells. Waking up, looking out the window, you can't beat it. That's how you want to approach life. You go outside and it's very rare. Pay attention to and reflect on things you see in your everyday life. Like: “This building is beautiful Aye man, the lights, how the hell did they get up there?”. Think about how far we've come. Humans have done many great things that we need to appreciate more.
Try to keep your head up. Stay positive. Live your life. You are amazing, you are loved. I love you and people love you, and people that don’t know you love you. Hip hop loves you and the world and music loves you. No matter where you are, you can find love, and with the internet now we can find more love. We can get together. I'm here to listen to everybody. As well as talking to you, I want to listen, and I want you guys to tell me what you feel.
I love all y'all so much. I love y'all for life, remember that.
