"Tears fall all the way to the south of France," Ross spits, "Poverty line hang lower than my pants / Invited to the Grammys but I feel so out of place / After we watch plates they were always out of state." Later, he drops references to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and James Cameron's Titanic, before conjuring a quintessentially Bawse image: "Aroma of the dank as I'm breezing through the bank."

Now, Adele is sharing a peep-hole into her soul. In an open letter via Twitter, the British singer opened about 25’s origins and the message she hopes to share with the rest of the world. In the letter, she explains that unlike her previous project, which was a break-up album, 25 is a “make-up record.” “I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did,” she wrote.
The singer also detailed the impact the album’s age has had in her own life. She labels becoming 25 as a “turning point,” explaining that it was like “teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully fledged adult.”
As a whole the poetic open letter takes fans on a timeline of Adele’s coming-of-age story. In its conclusion, the singer addresses her absence in a simple sentence. “And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”-Vibe.com

The sweet brown liquid swirls hypnotically in the bottom of the glass. An intoxicating lava lamp of 80-proof goodness. No less than a swig remains. But this man doesn’t swig. He sips, preferring to let the spirit linger on his tongue, appreciating both its full body and complex palate.
The ambient hum of the dark room soothes. Our waitress is young and beautiful and attentive. This is as cozy as you can be in public. Vegas feels safe on a Tuesday night in August.
There are stares, of course, but he feels more insulated than anything.
We are at the back of the restaurant. The dim luminescence of the room and rhythmic flicker from the solitary candle on the table—an unexpected mashup of accidentally good lighting—frame his glowing face.
He stares at his phone. A text comes from Khloe. He replies then apologizes. Tucks his phone away.
We order another round.
“Where do you call home now?” I ask.
“My heart,” he says. “Wherever my heart is and I can have peace of mind. Life can seem nomadic because I don’t know if I’m embracing it or running from it. I can go anywhere, but I don’t know where I want to be.”
“I’m searching,” he says. “I’m searching, but I don’t know for what. I can’t see what I’m looking for. I just, like, reach out and hope I grab something. But I don’t know what it will be because I don’t know what I’m searching for.”
“Happiness?” I ask.
“More than that,” he replies. “But that would be real nice.”
“What do you think about on a daily basis?” I ask, lobbing up a question he’s free to take in any direction.
“I think about a lot,” he says as he strips the spicy chicken from its wooden skewer. “I think all the time—about everything. My kids, my wife. But mostly I think about the mind. My mind. There’s so much going on. So many thoughts. I think about this life. About me. Who I could be. Who I was. Who I am. Who am I?”
“Who are you?” I ask.
“I’m a dying breed,” he says. “There are no more Lamar Odoms. I’m the last one.”
I believe him. He swigs his drink.
The last of his kind.
I close my eyes in the back of an Uber. The sun drenches this Los Angeles highway disguised as a parking lot. It’s late August, and I’m heading to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. I’m going to Las Vegas. And of course I’m late.
For months I have been chasing Lamar Odom. It has been a trail littered with disconnected phone numbers, unanswered emails and people who don’t talk to him anymore. I used to refer to him as “The Ghost” because he’s notoriously the hardest human being I know to get hold of. In the early 2000s, I would leave him voice mails. When I saw him days later, he would always sheepishly apologize for not getting back.
We’d make plans to do an interview or hangout, and I’d always say, “Don’t forget about me now.”
“Never,” he’d always reply.-Read the Rest here Lamar Odom

I really hope he put this one on his upcoming album: Royalty. I love songs like this from Chris Brown. He is at his best when he sings what he is feeling at the time. This song was written around 2012-13.

What are you HEARING?
How many of us truly realize that what we are hearing has a direct impact on what we are saying?
The Word of God states that Faith comes by HEARING, hearing by the Word of God(kjv). So what is being said here? That our faith is effected by what we are hearing. If we are listening then to "voices of strangers" -the word says "His sheep know His voice and the voice of a stranger they will not follow"-John10:5
It's important that you pay attention to what you are HEARING because do you realize you speak according to what you hear. For example: a person who is hearing impaired, has difficulty also with their speech. So does a believer who is HEARING(listening to) the voice of a stranger(someone speaking opposite of the word) their SPEECH becomes altered, which does what? Altar the direction the Lord had them going in. To reach the fullness of destiny that our FATHER IN HEAVEN PLANNED FOR US, we are to take up our cross (purpose) and follow HIM. In doing so we are HEARING HIM, and in response we SAY WHAT WE HEAR, and the manifestation of HIS word comes forth!
So again take note on what you are hearing, because it effects what's coming out of your mouth! And we know that THE POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH IS IN OUR TONGUE. What are u saying? Probably what u are hearing! #ReEvaluate
You listening to "poverty speech" that's what's going to come out of your mouth. You listening to confusion about love, you believe love is confusing and u start speaking that...etc. #HOLYSPIRIT #Hearing #faith #speech #lifeanddeath #God #thewordofGod #bible #meditate
