Beats, Lyrics, && Los

On twitter most of my tweets are lyrics from songs I'm listening to at the time. I know some people hear a song and listen to the beat more than the lyrics, not me.  I listen to lyrics first because I think being a rapper, if used correctly can be therapy, motivational or education for people. I like rappers that actually have something to say.

If your haven't heard of the rapper from Baltimore named Los you should check out his mixtape "Shooter"!! Shooter- Knowing what your aiming for, having a target. Having a goal. Not letting those who oppose you, kill your dream. Sometimes you gotta be a shooter. Sometimes you gotta be your own hero. Believe in Yourself!

"What if I told you that pain was suitable
That hardships, bad times, and rain was beautiful
Now have in your environment, the blame is usual
In fact, anything that you could blame is usable
What if I told you I could show you through the sky
And if you took my hand and just believe you could flyWould you stand there without your feet leaving the ground
Maybe the doubt inside your heart is what’s been keeping you down
Well I’m hear to tell you, I aint here to sell you a dream
Only you can fail ya, make your doubters hail you a king
Cause you royalty, born piss poor though the worst times
Instead of hatred, learn to love yourself for the first time
So for that hug your father never gave you, here goes one
And if I gotta be your backbone till you grow one
I will, to instill morals and principles
Just to let you know you invincible"

Up Close and Personal with Dep of BCS

How would you describe yourself?
I would say it’s hard to describe me in one sentence, but if I had to I'm a hard working dude and obsessed with success it’s all I think about all day every day.

Who do you look up to? In life and in your career.
In life, I look up to my mom and dad. The sacrifices they have made me and my siblings still amaze me. They are the best parents in the world. In my career, I look up to DMX and Russell Simmons. DMX for all the passion he had in his music, it’s the same passion I try to put in my songs. Russell Simmons for the fact he is "hip hop". No matter what era, he always stays relevant and still collecting checks. Lol

What are your three strongest qualities? Three weakest?
My three strongest qualities would be my work ethic, the fact that I always want to be perfect, and my ear for music.

My three weakest qualities would be that I can never say no to a new project, I'm always trying to take on the world, but besides I'm think I'm pretty much perfect. Lol

 What's the meaning behind BCS?
BCS stands for Black Cornerstones. It’s made up of young, black, talented individuals that are striving to be the best at craft. We don't answer to anyone. We are not obligated to answer to anyone, because we are bosses.

• How is your style different from other rappers in the game?
I think my style is different because I'm versatile. I can make so many different types of records. My mixtape (The First Installment, available on include songs you can party to, songs for the ladies, and songs where u can just chill roll up a joint, pour yourself a drink and just chill.

• Outside of your career, what goals have you set for yourself?
Beside my career I just want to be able to provide for my family and not let the people down who believe in me.

• What made you decided to enter the rap industry?
I have always been a fan of you music, its runs in my family. At the age of 6, I was playing the drums. I always knew music would be a part of my life. From age of 13, I have always dreamed of performing in front of a sold out crowd with 150,000 people singing my songs, which is why I entered the rap industry.

• What is success to you?
Success to me is having a dream, and waking up every day to pursue it. Nowadays hardly anyone knows what they really want to with their life, so when u find something you love and enjoy doing; life doesn't get any better.

• I know you're a busy man so how do you fill free time?
In my free time pour myself a glass of Johnnie walker and listen to my favorite songs.
please leave comments and questions!!!

Venting - with dead weight you cant travel lite.

Okay yall, i need to vent. I'm getting soooo annoyed -__- with people and THEIR problem with my weight. I am very comfortable and confident with MY body, but for some odd reason people surrounding me have a problem with it. I think I carry myself very well and shit I think i look good and not " for a BIG girl" but for myself period. Okay okay i get HEALTH is a huge factor ( no pun intented lol) but last time I checked I'm pretty healthy. Honestly, I don't even think that's the concern. I've been told I need to lose weight to be in a wedding!! haha people are crazy.I just feel bad because I'm not the only one dealing with this issue. However I am a strong person where this doesn't effect how I see myself.I Just get annoyed after awhile.

 I really wish that females especially "big girls" can see themselves, the way I do. I am not my hair, my BODY, my skin color, my hair texture. I am me for the things that me, ME. and everything I'm not make me everything I am. So in my title where I say "with dead weight you can't travel lite"  meaning those people around you that try to hurt your feelings or put you down because of your body- they are the dead weight. These are the people you need to lose out of your life, so you can travel lite meaning be yourself.

So for the hug you need here goes one *hugs*
Love yourself and be yourself ladies :]

baby i love youuu, you are my lifeeee [ music]

okay i LOVE alot of things but nothing and i mean nothing compares to music. I love traveling, dancing, boyssss  :], jewelry, foood, nails, arts & crafts, movies, boys! , etc. but the things that always tops my list is music. music brings a certain joy to my day and always makes me feel good. i wake up, go to sleep, clean up, take a shower, and get dressed all while listening to my favorite jams.

the best thing and worst thing is you can never really have a favorite song or rapper or singer, because music moves so fast that its always something new to change your mind. if i absolutely had to choose a favorite song, it would be "voyage to Atlantis - by the isley brothers". idk why but it doesn't matter what mood I'm in this song makes me smile and takes me there! lol

whats song takes you take you there??
