Crazy Verse: Rapsody – Destiny

Lately I’ve been bumping Rapsody’s The Idea of Beautiful. I can help to press the repeat button when I listen to a few of her songs. One in particular that I think is strong lyrically is track # 9, entitled “Destiny”. The lyrics are so personal and I think they strike an accord with many people. I like how she opened up and shared her experience on how she grew, I can vouch for how real it is. Peep this 1st verse.

I wanna meet Jay and just play a rhyme for him
I see him spittin Heineken like girl rhyme again
sayin you’re inspiring to Blue Ivy and em
take it back like hockey jerseys, Guess jeans, and butter Tims

Verse: 1
Jehovah’s witness I never had Christmas
never really missed it, toys on a wishlist
papa worked night shift to make sure my life lit
like them trees with them Angel wings and some nice gifts
not a single birthday party with a cake lit
never had to blow out candles for my wishes
told that anything I dreamed I could be if
I work at it had to put the drive in the automatic
memories of paramedics up at the crib late
aunt Fran, her life got me praying for Allstate
put some good hands on her I need her for always
and beyond being young she gotta live to see old age
hard watching momma sick it felt like some cold days
I wonder if she thought about paradise like Coldplay
I know what cross your mind when your health ain’t all great
fear of losing life I know the feeling to well
weight heavy on ya mind I was six summers losing weight
had to be a patient patient praying to meditate
escape in the music take me far as them everglades
red Accord riding memorizing that J-A
Y hyphen thinking of my life in them future days
home, my dreams in mind looping on replay like


Too tough!
