Snapshot 4: Music or Poetry by Pernale Blake
November 10th, 2015
Everyone has there own way of dealing with stress; some people abuse drugs, or they abuse alcohol, and others exercise. The way I cope with stress is by listening to music. Music is so vital to survival, everyone would go mad without it. Most people have a known favorite musician that they love and cherish, and every time they listen to that so called musician the stress, anger, it all goes away immediately. For me this would be A$ap Rocky. Most people find him to be to ruthless, or rude, or degrading to mankind, but those people take his lyrics too literally. When I listen to him, it is music to my ears. A$ap Rocky grew up in New York City without a father, or a mother, and he raps a lot about that. My favorite thing about A$ap Rocky is his confidence while rapping, he often times refers to himself as the best, the king of rap, or as a god. One of my favorite songs by A$ap Rocky is “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2”, in this song he talks about how he hangs out with a bunch of models and that they were all of is expensive gold chains. Also how he has too much money to handle, and if you mess with his on the street him and all of his crew will teach you a lesson. I know that A$ap’s music does not have the best influence on me or anyone else, but his music gives me confidence. I used to listen to him before footballs games to give me confidence and to pump me up for the game. He is an inspiration to me, and whether he knows it or not, has help me survive through some tough times.
