Ok..so a few of you know I’m working on a new mixtape. I’ve decided on a title. It’s called #HaveMercy. I really want to target a younger generation with this particular project. I’ve noticed that my music tends to vibe with people who are between the ages of 25-45. I want to target some 15-25 year olds with this one. The world we live in is totally different from how it was 15 years ago when I was that age. I won’t say they have more to deal with but they have different types of things to deal with. It seems as if everything is going in reverse now. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Boys want to be girls, wearing tight jeans and small shirts. Some walk around saggin showing they dirty drawls not knowing that’s really a sign of being gay and if they were in jail it would be an open invitation. They’re are becoming soft and weak minded and lack respect for themselves and other people. When I came up, there was certain things you didn’t do or say in front of older people. Others have no clue what work is and providing for yourself and family. They would rather steal, beg, borrow, bum or take it rather than make it. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Girls are having another set of issues. Some want to be men. They feel they can accomplish it by shaving their hair, dressing like boys and changing their name. Others think having sex is the way to go. They end up lost looking for love not knowing what it is intended to be and worse they become pregnant and have STD’s. They lack attention so they try and get it by taking half naked pictures in bathroom mirrors with camera phones. By the way, duck lips aren’t cute and neither is the dirty room that is in the background. #HaveMercy on them Lord.
Now, I know these issues have existed long before me. I also know that the bigger issue is a lack of responsibility, caring, discipline, focus, prayer and time spent from the parents of these kids. That’s another topic, another post, another song. We’ll get to that later.
My above thoughts inspired the song “Young Ones”. I used Nicki Minaj – Moment 4 Lift beat. This will go on the #HaveMercy mixtape. Listen and comment please. Thanks
