‘Sometimes I dream bigger than I live’

[Verse 1 – Big Sean]

Sometimes I dream bigger than I live
Sometimes I think better when I’m lit
So goin and light it
Roll it up, ignite it
One time for all my niggers that dreamed it than real life’d it!
I swear I’ve been through everything in life but a coffin
They say the sky’s the limit, how bitch? I’m moonwalking!
And my middle name Michael ho
Success is my idol and being broke is my rival
But it’s cool because I got the title ho
See I just want my fantasies in real life
You got everything tell me what it feel like
Muthafuck the radio if I can’t hear mine
They give the wrong niggers more airtime than airlines
Is you feeling me?
If not you feel my energy
See I know I’mma make it, but even if I don’t
Don’t feel bad cuz honestly all the times that I had
Those will be the best memories

[Hook]
Be the best memories
I hope that you remember me
These will be the best memories
Cause in the end all you really have is memories

[John Legend]
Let’s reminisce over the good times and the bad
Reflect on everything we missed
Cause you know we’ll never get it back

[Big Sean – Verse 2]
Are you willing to give up what you love, for who you love
Or lose your girlfriend to groupie love
Everywhere I go I get a group of hugs
Thats what happens when they need connections and you the plug
How many trends you gotta set before you considered great
How many missed calls before you considered fake
How many dreams before its considered fate
I’m eating in a World where I’m considered bait
A workaholic addicted to bills
People addicted to me cuz they addicted to real
My best friend got addicted to pills
I can’t look at him in his eyes, you don’t know how that sh-t feels mentally!
I aint trying to rock no shirts that say “in memory”
I’m praying that he make, wished we could go back
Cuz honestly all the times that we had
those be the best memories…

[John Legend]
Let’s reminisce over the good times and the bad
Reflect on everything we missed
Cause you know we’ll never get it back

[Verse 3 – Big Sean]
Sometimes reality checks are too big to be cashed
Was mailed one when I heard Nique had died in that crash
Seemed like yesterday I just seen him smile and laugh
I’m stressing over little shit
When I should be happy I can
They say my music beating, cause I follow my heart
I always have faith, like who swallows the darts
And with my Mama looking at cribs that we can’t purchase
Houses bigger than a palace
But she a queen, so she deserve it
So I’m focused, they try to throw me off track
But they just hurdles
I’m marathoning to the money and you just running off in a circle
Man, I’m huddled up with my team, in other words my inner circle
Fast forward a few years later
Now we the fucking winner’s circle
Remember the first time I was rhyming for Kan’
Almost as nervous as the first time I rhymed for my mom
Sold out the theater downtown, she said it was perfect
But I already dreamed it
So it felt like I rehearsed it
Much as my grandma took care of me since I was birthed
Sad I used to steal $20 bill right out her purses
No I ain’t perfect, tryna make a gift out of a curse
Life out of a hearse
And if I die, of course I have the memories..

[John Legend]
Let’s reminisce over the good times and the bad
Reflect on everything we missed
Cause you know we’ll never get it back

This is one of my favourite song off the FINALLY FAMOUS album by the G.O.O.D music star Sean Anderson better known as his stage name Big Sean. I picked this song because it’s probably is the most touching song on the album. The opening to the song gets to me mainly because I dream a lot, and I don’t mean sleeping-dreaming  because everyone does that, I think, but I’ve got all this ideas in my head that I just want to pour out to the world that will hopefully be FINALLY FAMOUS. So you see Big Sean is an inspiration to me and that’s why he is my favourite artist. Anytime I’m feeling incapable or stressed to the point I want to give up I listen to Big Sean. To be honest when I listen to Big Sean it’s like listening to an older brother (which I never had) advising me to strive on because I will get there someday. Big Sean’s struggle to fame is also an inspiration to all who dream to achieve big  and also to those who have been looked down upon but are still striving to make it. The mind state of giving up can be very dangerous to our dreams and goals. In WU-TAN, the trainer explained the mind is stronger than the body, once the mind state of giving up kicks in and we give into it our body has a low chance of striving on for this reason we ought to fight against such a mind state. The mind is stronger than the body. That’s why I use music to tame it and Big Sean is one of the main artist I use to do this including other artist like Tinie Tempah (written in the stars), Mac Miller (best day ever, Donald trump), Drake (headlines) and so much more.

So if you’re reading this and you are the one that dreams big but people keep saying you can’t do it or society has told you it will never work or happen just keep thinking ‘They say the sky’s the limit, how b***h? I’m moonwalking!’

‘How many trends you gotta set before you considered great
How many missed calls before you considered fake
How many dreams before its considered fate
I’m eating in a World where I’m considered bait’  Sean ‘BIG SEAN’ Anderson.
