This Is the Best Freestyle You Will Ever See

I’m not a big hip-hop fan but I absolutely love this video.  Just really entertaining from start to finish. You think he’s going to stop and he just keeps on going. Is part of this pre-written? Probably. But Sway throws out random phrases that he throws into his freestyle with ease.

There’s also something about the 5:30 mark that is laugh out loud funny.

The artist’s name is Mistah Fab from Oakland, California. His name comes from the acronym “Money Is Something to Always Have — FaEva Afta Bread”- an acronym that is so absurd you almost have to respect it. Definitely the best freestyle I’ve seen to date.

Weekend Playlist: Vehicle to Escapism

es·cap·ism
əˈskāpˌizəm/
noun
1. the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.
The right combination of tracks can conjure up a feeling within me that is almost indescribable.  It is a stopwatch on my life – it freezes time and allows me to take a step back from my reality in order to develop a new, holistic perspective. The ability to isolate emotions is elusive, yet magically powerful. Throughout life, our expectations can become mangled images of what they once were, leaving us paralyzed and unable to enjoy the many pleasures right before our eyes. If we don’t adapt and constantly redefine our expectations, we will surely live lives full of what-ifs and what-could-have-have-beens.  Train yourself to be a world-class escape artist, learn how to ignore the unpleasant realities around us, and focus on the beautiful world we live in.
This week, this playlist was my vehicle to escapism — enjoy the ride.

 

New Playlist: “For Her”

I wasn’t going to post this playlist.

It started as a pretty sappy assortment of songs that reminded me of someone who used to be very special in my life. I would only make it through a couple songs before turning it off. Just couldn’t do it. But lately I’ve realized that, in some strange way, this playlist has evolved into a genuine source of happiness. Time will do that.

It reminds me of some of the happiest and saddest times in my life.  Rather feel one of those than neither, right?
