Wale said that ambitious girls only wanna win and they’d rather chase their dreams than chase these men that try to chase these girls, and these girls are sweet but they ain’t even as sweet as her.
Kanye West Quotes
There are a lot of people who need to know that one day they will get their revenge.
I’ve never been a fan of Kanye’s music. I’m not even sure what he’s trying to say. Maybe he’s referencing the album he released a year ago called “Yeezus”, which was poorly received by some. What I do like is the line about memories. It’s the one line that he’s uttered in his concert tonight.
Tell someone you admire them so they can know. We are all guilty of the same thing and we all need to show other people how they can become a better version of themselves.

Others dream of success and they will spend half of their time complaining about how hard they work.

A constant battle.

A really good example of how to use this in the real world is the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”.
Lets say you know an act will be successful in the near future, you can use this knowledge to earn money by making a business plan for the next big product.
Kid Cudi Quotes
Having a positive impact on someone else’s life gives life meaning.
What’s good is Cudi’s music, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However his lyrics are sometimes less than solid, as they can be very cheesy and trite. For example, I don’t appreciate the line above, even if it’s just a throwaway, self-deprecating line.

Chris Brown believes that people should never assume that they know what someone is going through.
Jay Z said that nobody could look like him and that he built his body the way he did.
If I can judge Jay Z based on his music, then I have no problem judging him based on his comments on the murder. If he can judge, which is highly unlikely, and can say he’s not guilty, then he doesn’t have a reason to have remorse for what he said. But, if he’s truly not guilty, he should show some remorse for how the police treated him.
You are a part of a tribe. It’s more than just being part of a social network. Think of what you do as a tribe and try to get a group of people to help you.

You are part of a tribe, and you will have some positive and some negative things you do as a part of that tribe.
The reason why Jay Z is the rapper that he is is because of the way he expresses his voice over beat through his words. The problem is that he is not saying anything new. You can find this quote on most rap songs. It’s just that it’s his voice that makes his beat different than all the others.

In the movie, Andre 3000 plays the character named “Andre 3000”. He says: “Everyone has an addiction… mine happens to be you.” He is saying that he wants to get to know you.

We’re at the edge of the river
I’ll give you
All of me until there’s nothing left.
I want you to know, regardless of whether or not you are around, I can’t speak.
I think this is a pretty cool quote from Childish Gambino. I like that he has more than one line that’s not about fame – it’s about making an impact. This is especially true, in my opinion, when you take away the word impact. He’s talking about making a difference. I like that.
As somebody who has struggled to fit into certain communities, I understand the pain of being told you don’t belong at a dinner party.
