Sitting here watching this Will.I.Am mini documentary and thinking about where I stand in life and how I feel about where I am.
First off, The Black Eyed Peas are definitely not who they once were musically speaking. This we know. However, after watching Will talk about things and hearing his PMA, it made me miss the homie Roofeeo and it made me say who the fuck cares about what they sound like now? Why can’t he do what he wants to do? I hear inside stories about dude all the time, but I think his reactions are genuine. Sure I don’t like Fergie, but I also don’t like the Black Eyed Peas anymore. If they were still doing what they were doing back then. now. would you still be into them? I highly doubt it. Tastes change, pop music is pop music, and if you don’t like it that is fine with me. What I am trying to say is, we shouldn’t be so negative to things we don’t find likeable.I can almost guarantee if they were still rapping and breaking on stage someone would be saying, “They are still doing that?” It’s a never ending cycle of negativity.
Second, I am stoked I live in New York City. October will be 1 year since I left Texas and though it has been up and down in my life and I can definitely say I am still on a steep climb, I have made it this far. I quit DJing earlier in the year and I still don’t know how I feel about jumping back into that area, but I have always felt bigger and better things coming for me. This still stands true. Though my best friends are on tour and some might be more considerate than others, I adapt to the situation and continue on the quest. It seems to be what I have always done and will continue to do so.
I miss Japan everyday and I plan on living there at some point in my life, but as of right now I live in one of the greatest cities in the world and I am doing it. I am making ends meet. I am surviving in one of the lowest economic times in our lives in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Now that I think about it, if I were to DJ out and I got a Black Eyed Peas request I would more than likely get reminded of why I quit in the first place. Sorry brah.
