“Rule number 1, get the money 1st. Rule number 2, don’t forget to get the money!” ~ Young Dolph
Now if you’re like me you may have rolled your eyes at this being the opening line of of yet another basic ass rap song. I mean at 31 I haven’t really been impressed with any of the new rap artist. Outside of the clubs and lounges I sometimes visit I really don’t listen to much of it. But while at work, two days after the elections this song popped up on someone I follows snap, it was just the chorus, and it caught my attention because for the past couple of days it has been my exact thought.
It’s now been two weeks, since it was announced that Trump would indeed be my country’s next president…I like a lot of people was devastated, but not really surprised. I already knew America didn’t care too much for me. I’m Black, I’m a Woman and I speak my mind. But a part of me also wanted to believe that we were moving forward…but I knew better.
So after going through all the emotions, and even crying in my car on my way to work the next morning…I got all this inspiration to give racist America another reason to be mad at me. Something just clicked, and I literally said outloud to myself…”GET THIS MONEY!”. So to come across this song was just a positive affirmation and the creative boost I needed to pick up my pen and notebook and start writing again. I even used a green peen to write this post rough draft, which I usually just type out on google docs.
So I just wanted to share a little post election inspiration here on my blog. Especially for the readers who are feeling betrayed or once again let down by the country we were born and raised in.
So what are some things that have kept you going these past two weeks, I would love to read about them in the comment section.
Also once again Thank You for visiting and reading this here blog of mine, I will be posting some super cool things really soon and I can’t wait to share it here with Yinz guys! And remember…
GET PAID YOUNG…GET PAID!
