It was 11 something at night and I had spent much of the night watching, Love and Hip Hop: ATL. One of the things that happens when I watch something involving either music or dance is that I get inspired to make my own music or dance. I’ve sat down to try and write a song or a rap multiple times but it is so so hard.
I have the ultimate respect for any songwriters, because it is a pain in the neck. Catching the beat, making it flow, making it make sense, etc. If I could just mumble cadences to the rhythm it would be a breeze!
But the other night, I made it happen! I made myself write a verse to the instrumental of, Crush on You by Lil Kim. I pushed through it and honestly it was the first really creative thing I’d completed in a minute. I’m very proud of it.
I don’t think it’s the best verse in the world and I’m definitely not coming for anyone’s crown. That being said, I think I did a pretty good job!
Again, I am nowhere near a rapper. So, take this as your cue to do something out of the box and creative!
