Rookie

Post by Tabu »

I'm 37... am I too old to love this game?
To be called a rookie once again?

Regroup...

I grew up in the 80's
sportin parachute pants
with a B-Girl Stance
to biker shorts and a Dookie Chains
over air brushed t-shirts
Reppin' my Crews name...
Only 'white gurl' Doin It
So I was told, again and again.
Now I'm a Vet-er-an???
IDK
Now I'm older with a family
working and going back to college...
Is this a waste of time?
To sometimes put pen to paper
And write new rhymes?
Its still in me, part of me, always will be.
But it doesn't pay the bills or
prep my families home cooked meals.
I recorded 2.5 albums... LOL
Yes... 2.5...
Got locked up after the .5
seems I lived the life...
I didn't just rap
I had to incorporate the whole role...
So in the 90's came gang banging...
instead of break dancing...
selling dope, instead of writing it...
In my defense my delivery was awesome...
Ironic isn't it???
I tried to fool myself into believing it was Iconic!
What a joke... Or punch line...
Still it's in me, hybernating like some hungry beast.
Hip-Hop waiting for release...
it's Prison is ME!!!
...
...
...
Maybe it just wasn't meant to be! IDK!





Just thinking....
