Have you ever came up with a goal you wanted to achieve? You come up with a well thought out blueprint and you say ” I’ll get to it tomorrow.” This is procrastination at its finest people… Wake up and get to it! Don’t put off what you can do today for tomorrow. Many see the old fable “The Tortoise and the Hare” as a story of underestimating your opponent. This may be true to some extent but the Hare really procrastinated in this situation. At one point the Hare put an astronomical distance between himself and the Tortoise. The Hare should have finished the race then took his nap after he crossed the finish line. Well we all know what really happened and that consequently cost the Hare the race.
As you can see Procrastination is the enemy of success even in the simplest of task don’t wait on it… go get it. The first thing that popped in your head is good things come to those who wait, but how often does that work out? Trust me it rarely happens. So be proactive not passive when it comes to achieving your goals, dreams, or any task/endeavor that is set before you. Christopher Parker once said ” Procrastination is like a credit card: its a lot of fun until you get the bill.”
Last night, Big Sean decided to stir up the internet by going on twitter and releasing one of his songs that didn’t make the album, “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica. After hearing this 7 min phenom I had the Will Smith stare and said to myself this don’t sound like a throwaway, but due to sample clearance problems this song didn’t make the album but may show up as a bonus track. This song definitely raises the bar for rap.
Big Sean went in talking about how he’s taking over and how he’s pushing to be the best in the game.
Kendrick murdered the song, talking about how he’s in control of the rap game being mentioned with the greats and informing his fellow rappers that rap is a competition, that he takes serious. Even name dropping your favorite new MC’s including Big Sean and Jay Electronica.
Jay Electronica finishes the song off talking about how he’s the known unknown creeping up on the game. Unfortunately this verse gets drowned out because of Kendrick’s verse.
HOF drops August 27th and will be an album work getting. If this song doesn’t inspire you to bring your A game I don’t know what will.
