A couple years ago, I made a Facebook page for this blog. It required me to write a short description, so—after four hundred and seven attempts—I settled on, “My favorite hobby is listening to rap lyrics and figuring out how to apply them to my life. classygallie.com.” Look, here’s a screenshot of it.
That short Facebook description wasn’t at all relevant to my blog… UNTIL NOW. NOW I WILL SHARE THE RAP LYRICS THAT DEFINE MY LIFE.
“I got no passion. I got no patience. And I hate waiting. Ho get your ass in here and let’s ride.” Jay-Z – Big Pimpin’
This was my motto back when I used to take the school bus a lot. I could have ridden with my sister, but she always had the heat too high and the punk rock too loud. Also, she was always late to school. Also, she made me ride in the backseat of her two-door VW Beetle, even though I’m 75% torso and the front seat was empty. Curved Beetle roofs and 6-foot-tall torsos ain’t friends.
“You gon’ make them eggs cheesy with them grits or nah?” Ty Dolla $ign – Or Nah
This one works with my life because I still live with my parents, and I often ask my dad to make me omelets. He’s against putting cheese on western omelets, for some astonishing reason, and we once had a falling out over it.
“I’m spoiled, and I don’t like to work that hard.” Petey Pablo – Freek-A-Leek
This one works because I’m spoiled and I don’t like to work that hard.
Lately, I’ve been really into a song called “I Don’t Get Tired (#IDGT)” by Kevin Gates.
In it, Kevin raps, “Get it get fly. I got six jobs, I don’t get tired.”
Last month, I wrote about my fun unemployment. I am no longer funly unemployed. Now I have a full-time job and two, maybe three part-time jobs. One of those part-time jobs is being a longshoreman. I’m not 100% positive what longshoremen do, but I know my dad’s one and he once squished off the tip of a finger while on the job. I played softball for a week in first grade and then quit because I wasn’t allowed to wear shorts and it was hot out. I will probably find it very hard to be a longshoreman.
GET IT GET FLY I GOT SIX JOBS I DON’T GET TIRED. #IDGT
(That’s a joke though. I get so tired.)
