These years fly by past quick actually, not so long I was just another kid out of high school, not so excited about varsity. 2 years later, some growth happened, lost some friends on the way, had to mourn for a few beautiful souls,fought some demons, lost the fight- drank it off, picked up some dirty habits and a clearer mindset. Now I know what I want and who I wanna share it with, I hope that she allows me, we could be great, if u could see it babe. Had a stint in hospital, had nearly shucked but I’m here still and I’m grateful. Thought I could do it by myself, that didn’t work and now I’m tryna get my fam back, got some dope friends who got my back and I got theirs. Got heartbroken, that shit got fixed. I’m at peace now. Been to mad parties with fly women, that was fun. Yung Springs nigga living out a Joburg movie, I’m still learning thou but it gets better with the more u know. 2014 I’m turning 21,the idea is to do it big. Throw a massive party and it’ll be all good even if I don’t get the car I want at the end of it. Finding it easier to let go and let God, cause life doesn’t happen at your time. Gonna pass at school and get this money or atleast put my plans in motion so by my late 20 somethings I’ll be living out my dreams without sleeping. Getting confident again, they should be scared of what I can do now, I’ve been lazily underachieving,think I’ve found the motivation to get elevated with no trees.all in all, it’s a good life that’s has it’s problems but who doesn’t man? 2014 and my eyes starting to look at things like I’m 10 again…
Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that."

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.(via lullabysounds)
