Overheard:

"My heart thump, not from being nervous
Sometimes I'm thinking God made me special here on purpose
So all the while 'til I'm gone make my words important so
If I slip away, if I die today the last thing you remember won't
Be about some apple bottom jeans with the boots with the fur."
 
-Kid Cudi's "The Prayer"

Kid Cudi is...was?...great. He wrote some pretty interesting and even poetic, perhaps, lyrics that carried some wisdom in addition to his catchy beats. I don't listen to much hip-hop or rap, but I'm into the Kid. I'm into this whole song, even more so after a few years.


This prayer may not be recorded in any Holy books or sang by a crowd of polished loafers and silk robes to the tune of an organ, but a subway bench makes as fine of a church pew as any.
Finer, on most of my days.
