My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

LL COOL J


20111011-233759.jpg

Yes, I watched the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards… kinda. I fastforwarded through the awards portion just to see the performance and ESPECIALLY the cypher sets.

Freestyles make me giddy. Why? The ability to rhyme to a beat off the top of your mind is amazing to me. I do it in a poetic way, but rappers, lyricists and emcees do it to the hottest and sickest beats. I love that about freestyles.

However, the one part of the awards show unrelated to performances and cypher sets that caught my attention was LL COOL J’s acceptance speech for the I AM HIP HOP AWARD. I rewound it back to that part of the show so much I have it practically memorized. His speech alone was evident enough as to why he was chosen to be this year’s recipient (read speech below).

LL Cool J’s acceptance speech for the 2011 BET’s I AM HIP HOP AWARD.

“My acceptance speech. What I won’t do is try to preach. What I won’t do is assume I’m smarter than you and try to teach. What I will do is set an example an inspire you to reach for the stars beyond mars that space bars can’t delete. Because without a dream fulfilled your life’s incomplete. A hurst. A limousine without a backseat. The worst, think, Usain Bolt without feet. Real life ain’t Hollywood it’s Halloween, every day is trick or treat. It ain’t a red carpet it’s a sidewalk bloodied from the wolves eating red meat. And these spotlights don’t come with money they come wih police. Millionaires crying about raising taxes on the elite. They won’t feed us as they’d rather defeat us like an aborted fetus, but your greatest feat is to get back up on your feet. Did I mention, life ain’t a sprint it’s a marathon really stressful on their tendons and with the shape that the economy is in today you better run to the polls like skinny kenyans. 26 miles in 2 hours, 3 minutes, it wasn’t weeks or months it took us over 400 years to raise the debt limit. So don’t lose faith. There’s a sweet life out there. And one day you will taste. But just like a marathon you must monitor your pace and watch out for the haters pushing drinks up in your face. Maintain your focus through the ups and downs through the arguments and debates. And when you win your award
make sure you put it in a safe place and be prepared for whatever, just in case.” ~LL COOL J~

Until next time,

XoXoX

Super excited for @pttheshaq senior season of #trackandfield! I truly appreciate your work ethic and determination to go out with a bang this year! Thank you for continuing to work through our sessions! #atn #aretethrowsnation #fieldnation #tracknation #thrownation #coach #athlete #blessing Everyone... meet DeSean. Every day in throw practice with my boys @hfvikingsthrows DeSean is humming, going through vocal warm ups or dancing. He missed practice last week for a recital. It crossed my mind after yesterday’s track meet to ask him how it went. He sent me a snippet of his recital where he covered @samsmithworld - Lay Me Down. (one of my favorites!) Music is such a huge part of my life; always has been and always will be. I don’t share that side of myself with my athletes only because for the 2 hours I’m with them, it’s all about throws. 
In a few weeks he moves on to perform again. I’m excited for him! Just because I’m his throw coach, doesn’t mean I don’t support and encourage my throwers other talents and gifts. Congratulations @deseancarey!

If it wasn’t for @crossfit, I wouldn’t be in the shape that I’m in at 40 years of age (I turn 40 this October). Sidenote: to the 2 cars who kept braking in front of me even when we were going 35mph... 🤬 @kaylawilson_42 has pushed my car lol #stronggirls #strongwoman #crossfit #crossfitter #explosive #thrower #powerlift #push #blessed #coach #adventuresofcoachT Pillar 7 addition by @track_and_golf_4ever?
