I know you’re not the coolest but I swear you are the cutest.
seriously has to be one of the songs that inspired me to write. It’s such a simple song, but tells a story. Lupe was probably the first rapper I really looked into cause I was so intrigued by his lines & different way of thinking. They were a lot deeper than you would think. I would memorize every single word, and search up the actual meaning to them. If you don’t know the whole back story to “The Cool”, I suggest you look it up….Lupe’s a genius.
Staying In Bed
If you’re trying to sleep but having no luck, do yourself a favor and get out of bed. People tend to think that by sticking it out in bed, rather than getting up and doing something, they at least have a chance of falling asleep. But lingering can increase performance anxiety. After a while you may begin to associate lying in bed with your struggle to fall asleep rather than a restful snooze.
The term "riding shotgun" was applied originally to the movie depiction of stagecoaches and wagons in the Wild West, in danger of being robbed or attacked. An employee or passenger would sit beside the driver, carrying a shotgun or rifle, to provide an armed response in case of threat to the cargo or passengers.
So next time you call shot gun remember that you’ve got responsibilities
