This week’s words of wisdom come via Jay Z, via The Notorious B.I.G.
Back in January I did a #nowplaying post about “somewhereinamerica“, the seventh track on Jay Z’s most recent album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail (2013). I talked about how much I like the album and how I’d been listening to, a lot. I’m mixing it up more these days, and recently listened to “A Dream,” the opening track to Jay’s 2002 album, The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse.
In “A Dream,” Jay describes a dream he has, in which The Notorious B.I.G. tells him to keep in mind that he is one-of-a-kind:
Nobody built like you, you designed yourself/
I liked it, and I thought I would pass it on.
