Branches of My Culture 5 (Set "Rock On")

2개월 전

Good morning to all!

Let’s keep this in mind.

Tell a different story about yourself and your value may increase, or also tell a different story about yourself and your value may decrease. What stories do you tell about yourself?

Someone asks:

-"What are you doing?".

-"Listen, I’m the best Mc here, I don’t know who the rest of these guys are but I’m the best, if you want to see what you have to do is hire me. Here’s my website, here’s my offer, I’ll be the best, I’m the best".

We call that ego, overconfidence. We call that lying to yourself. We call that everything you don’t have to do.

Change the story you tell about yourself and your value increases.

Here’s a real story that has to do with Hiphop consciousness.

Two guys are in a corner. They’re both broke, they have nothing. One of them turns to the other and says:

-"I’ll keep on giving and rhyming until your ears whistle and bleed, pounding and shining, true rap there’s no stopping me".

The other guy turns around and says:

-"Who do you think you are?".

The two of us together, broke, penniless, nothing, no fame.

If one of us says:

-"I’ll keep on giving and rhyming until your ears whistle and bleed, pounding and shining, true rap there’s no stopping me".

The other guy has the power to say: "You’re Garbage". And keep the two of them ruined.

Because if he’s garbage, who are you sitting next to? Garbage.

But when the first one drops the rhyme, the other one says:

-"That’s great, the best rhyme ever written. Do it again brother".

-"Really? I’ll keep on giving and rhyming until your ears whistle and bleed, pounding and shining, true rap no one can stop me".

-"Brother you’re the best, you’re really good!".


Well, that recognition that that guy is good, when one person gives recognition to another person, the value increases.

That’s how we did it, nobody tells because they weren’t there. It’s not in books, it wasn’t in documentaries… they weren’t there.

I remember when we were sitting, ruined, with nothing. My brother was the only one who said: "Brother, your rhymes are the bomb". And when he said that, I got up. Only because he said it. Now we both walk down the street with courage. What’s the value? That he thinks I’m good. Because he says I’m good, I’m good. Because I don’t say I’m good, he says I’m good.

So I have an external vision, of my personal vision. He feels what I feel. But if he insults me, he degrades me, he does not give me his…recognition we both stayed down.

In the next post I will continue with this, thanks for the attention.
