ODD MAN OUT

Ask me anything   A collection of pictures, ideas, music and random things in life that make it fun.

Message of the Day- Don’t let anything stop you from following your dreams. 

From Jay-Z telling him he needs to stick to producing, to a almost fatal Car accident, Having his mouth wired and still recording, To his mom Passing away, to people trying to minimize his success, Kanye Has never let anyone or anything control his ambition. 

Just look at this picture from 12yrs ago and imagine where music would be if He would have given up on his dreams. 

Don’t ever dwell on what you don’t have, if you don’t have something at the moment, God just doesn’t think your ready, so be happy with what you have and use those tools to help you get what you need! 🙏😊

Do not tell me
that crying is a
sign of weakness.

If I can use water
to keep my body
free from dirt,

then I can also
shed tears to
remove the burden
from my soul.

Wooo

Yes.

Ronald McNair grew up in Lake City, S.C. He grew up to become an astronaut. He was on the Challenger mission, which tragically exploded seconds after takeoff on Jan. 28, 1986. This is the actually funny story of how he started his journey in a time of great racial strife, as told by his brother to StoryCorps. And despite the tragedy, there’s a little bit of a happy ending.
