"All we wanna do is take the chains off, all we wanna do is break the chains off"
By far, one of the realest interviews I have ever watched. Three days after his album releases, J.Cole does an interview on the Angie Martinez Show and barely markets 2014 Forest Hills Drive. In the grand scheme of things regarding this interview, he portrays that his album is really micro to the topics and issues being discussed throughout. However, is it really that micro? I believe that music has the power to change the world and this could be the album to spark that change. No this album won't end racism, cure cancer, or rid people of hunger but it can ignite important discussions that people in our communities need to engage in more. Tupac once said, "I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world," and I believe J. Cole is following in those exact footsteps while keeping that quote in the back of his mindframe.

Guidance. A lot of people are seeking guidance. I started writing blogs because I've seen a lot of things in my lifetime. These situations and experiences have allowed me to gain a lot of knowledge and wisdom that I would like to share with whoever is willing to listen. These blogs are highly opinionated, views expressed by simply myself. However, I believe my views and opinions can help people in need.
