“I know I can….be what I wanna be…if I work hard at it…I’ll be where I wanna be…” -Nas, “I Can”, Stillmatic
Just what do I wanna be? Who do I wanna be? Where am I goin?
It seems that those questions are being asked later and later in life. Who am I, really?
The problem is that the farther along in life you go, the more “stuff” you pick up (under the umbrella of responsibility). And it’s those things make you think that the “what you wanna be” is a distant memory.
It’s a lie from the pits of Hades.
