Life’s a blur..

Wow, I haven’t gotten the chance to write in quite a while so I have a lot to say.

Take a look at this picture. – Everything around him is in motion, but he’s at a standstill. You ever feel like that before? Life’s just hustling and bustling around you, but you’re not moving. Have you ever had a relationship where it felt like you were just going through the motions and didn’t realize anything till after it ended?

It’s amazing how we can go through so much on a day to day basis and not even be aware of it.

 

First and foremost, I’d like to say that life is not guranteed and any day could be your last, so cherish every moment that you live and write a script that’s worth writing.

 IT IS  A BLUR

Now that I got that off of my chest, today I would like to briefly rant about a couple of situations that I have personally been through to give you a better perspective on how I view things.

 

I have been through my fair share of relationships and have always tried to conduct myself in a mature manner and be the gentleman my mom raised me to be, but every situation doesn’t permit that persona to be displayed. I used to be a guy that wanted to have as many options as possible, I still am to a certain extent, but allow me to explain it further.

 

In any relationship, we come to understand that there will ALWAYS be something that your partner does or a trait that they may have, which you will not agree with or like. I would like to call myself a very open minded and accepting person, so I allow things to slide by that I may or may not like because I understand that we as people, are individuals. I find that a lot of people are attracted to those who their initial instincts say that they shouldn’t date. Is it the chase or the prospect of changing them that draws more attention? – It will be discussed at a later time.

 

My last major relationship ended on a sour note, due to the lack of communication and the constant presence of my partner, therefore being around each other too much and not learning enough about ourselves in separate. I will discuss the idea of being around each too much in my next blog, but trust me, it can DEFINITELY be a bad thing.  For a time period, I was completely turned off relationships due to the pessimistic feeling after having a rough breakup.

Relationships allow you to learn more about yourself than most situations do, so I can honestly say that I have learned from my mistakes and have done wrong. I allowed myself to become so absorbed into a relationship that I changed as a person. I learned that I do put a lot of emotion into relationships, which is a good thing, but it can be the straw that broke the camel’s back too. A lot of the times, we like to set double standards subconsciously and won’t realize it till after the relationship has ended. A key part of succeeding in a relationship is realizing your actions as they happen, which in today’s relationships, I find that this aspect is seriously lacking.

 

Sincerely, there is too many excuses being thrown around along the lines of, “I should’ve realized what I was doing, when I was doing”. I know you have either experienced this first hand or have heard of this happening and just shook your head.  Pitiful, right? How many chances are people expecting to get in life? Third time’s the charm?!

 

People do not want to take responsibilities for their actions or words anymore and are so absorbed in being like everyone else that they are less inept to recognize their own faults or relationship’s faults.

 

The phrase “you never know what you have, until it’s gone” is so fitting for our generation and the basic problems that we seem to encounter in our lives and relationships.

 

Once again, I’ll be discussing in length the idea of being around your boyfriend or girlfriend next, so check it out.

 

…Until we meet again

It’s Fight Night!

The Battle of EAST vs WEST

[ Phillipines vs UK  ]

It’s definitely not Ali vs Frazier or Tyson vs Holyfield, but this fight right here, is certainly a marquee matchup and thee fight to see in 2009.

Pacquaio just handed Oscar, The Golden Boy, De La Hoya retirement papers in his last fight.

Who wants to put a W on their script instead of getting knocked out?

Let’s see if The Hitman, as the under dog, can beat the marked pound-for-pound BEST fighter in the world.

Break out your popcorn and Let’s get ready to RUMBLE !

..and if you like basketball, Game 7 of the Celtics vs Bulls series is on too. 😉

Update: WINNER- Manny Pacquiao

Manny PacMan Pacquiao destroyed the so-called, Hitman, in the 2nd round by TKO. I’ve had quickies longer than that. SMH

Best 1st Round Playoffs Series Ever Winner: Boston

The Celtics took game 7 in a hard fought game,but congrats to D.Rose and the young Bulls on their competitive season.

The NBA Playoffs, Where Amazing DOES happen…

So the playoffs are underway and we’re starting to separate the pretenders from the contenders. Several superstars, but only one has what it takes to propel his TEAM to a NBA Championship. This is the one of those times of the year where you have to choose between watching the game,doing homework, improving your relationship,  or working. I hope you make the right choice in multitasking haha.

What we have learned so far in this year’s playoffs:

– Detroit is done. Time to rebuild

– Philadelphia choked against a Howard-less Magic.

– Utah is a good team, but they’re not ready.

– The Bulls are for real, series against Boston has been one of thee best in recent memory.

– San Antonio needs to retire their entire team ASAP.

– Portland WILL be a problem in the future.

– Tracy McGrady is STILL a first round virgin.

– Don’t sleep on Denver

Cleveland is setting up that throne.

One team, one goal, one championship.

That team is writing history before our eyes and superstars are being born, this is what the NBA playoffs are all about.

life has no script, write your own.

Hollywood Floss – An Introduction To HIS Music!


Coming to you from Houston,Texas is a rapper,producer,and promoter, Hollywood FLOSS, looking to continue making headlines in the music industry. Starting in the year 2006. FLOSS has worked his way up from grassroots efforts, constantly creating his music to make way into people’s speakers. Allow LifeHasNoScript to give you a better look into the artist, Hollywood FLOSS, as we find out a little bit more about him and where his mind is.

So what is your official stagename and why’d you choose it?

My official stage name is Hollywood FLOSS, but most call me either Hollywood or Floss… I didnt choose it, the Floss part was actually given to me! It used to be Flossy B as a nickname around the hood, but i dropped it and went for just FLOSS when i started to take rap seriously… Hollywood is what I added to help you remember me, as much as the music should speak for yourself, this is a business and you have to leave an impression.

How did your favorite artists influence your music

You know what thats a good question… My favorite artist are spread out across all different genres, I’m talking Prince to Andre3k to Squarepusher to Maroon 5, so that opened my eyes to accept different types of music and help me create music thats more open and honest… I feel i will try and take risk with my music, whereas most new musicians are afraid of what others think, and have a hard time finding themselves as an artist.

How long have you been involved in music as an artist?

As an artist I’ve been around since 2006… I use that as the year where I started to take rap/producing seriously and making a name for myself.

You’re gaining fans with the more material you drop, how do you plan to achieve a mass fanbase?

If you truly listen to my music and give new artist like myself a chance, there’s NO way, you wont like something i do point blank! Thats not being cocky, thats being truthful. The mass fanbase comes from people knowing about you, so I plan on building a brand where you see my name and you expect good music, to relate to the music or something different… I’m a true believer in word of mouth, so as long as i’m doing my part and spreading my music, the fans will come.


What’s your inspiration behind the music you make and what mindset do you go in to make it?

My biggest inspiration to making music is striving to get better and eventually be amongst the greats… In the past I’ve seen people say i just want to get by, NEGATIVE! I want to be remembered and the cause of arguments LOL… My mindset when making music is 1) are you being yourself 2) is it different, does it standout? 3) Is it enjoyable, will it stand the test of time!

Has the area you were raised in played a part in the your creativity

Houston is really diverse for those who watch tv and just think its cowboys or grills… So i’d definitely say 110% Yes the diversity of the city has played a part in my music… Ask my family and friends and they will tell you I’m all about seeing different life and being apart of not so similar cultures… My music represents my honest thoughts and the life i’m trying to get to.

What do you think about the state of the music industry currently?

I cant lie, the game is bittersweet… On one end you have messed up sales and ridiculous music being put out for political reasons, but then you have the good side of the game where you can actually make a name for yourself without leaving the house…I mean its beautiful to be able to test the waters with your material and have access to your primary fans, so your not wasting anyones time. If anything i will say the game has the potential to be more balanced, where in the past your career really wasnt up to you, Artists can actually be themselves and run their career if they decide to. Its interesting!

How would you describe the style of your music?

Man sometimes i dont know what i be doing… i wouldnt call myself a rapper, rapping is just the most frequent form of expression i use! … I’m all over the place avant garde – soul – hiphop – rock – electronica… I really need to coin a genre for myself… It’s always switching up.

If you could choose one artist to collab with on a track, who would it be and why?

Def. gotta go with Andre3k! … He’s one person in music who has know limits, and i pride myself with not having any limits to what i can do, so i would love to see his process and what goes into making the thought provoking music he does…Also got to ask him is Erykah Badu stuff that good!

What is your favorite hip hop quotable, if you had to choose one?

Wow! so many of them… and i’m a random dude, but one of my favorites is from Can I Live…

“Lock my body can’t trap my mind, easily

explain why we adapt to crime

I’d rather die enormous than live dormant that’s how we on it

Live at the main event, I bet a trip to Maui on it”

He pretty much summed up a young black man’s mind right there

What is your most favorite track that you’ve done up-to-date?

Favorite track to date – either “She A Dime” or “Before You Judge”… I use to think it was cliche for rappers to say this, but every new track is your favorite…I’m telling yall this recording songs is CRACK, its the new CRACK

What is your most favorite track that you’ve done up-to-date?

I have an early hits projects coming soon for those who need to catch up and learn about me, New album coming late summer/early fall “House of Dreams” and group projects from E Pluribus Unum – rap/rock group and T.H.E.M. – the houston elite Mc’s compilation…So the calender’s full, hopefully the fans support

Introducing Young Rilla – Putting Indiana on The Map

LifeHasNoScript links up with another artist, this time it’s Young Rilla, an MC looking to put Indiana on the map! Check out the interview to find out more about his music and upcoming works in 2009.

When you sit down to write your music, how you go about telling your story?

It really depends on what I’m trying to do with the song. Like for instance, on “May Day” I didn’t really want to try too hard to be like…clever or witty or anything because I wanted the song to feel more natural. When I’m arguing with my girl, I’m not sitting and thinking up a thousand “hot” metaphors. I’m just saying how I feel, ya know? But then again, on some songs I like to go that extra mile to be original and what not. It is what it is I guess. All I really know is that I never try to make the same song twice, so my creative process has to be a little different with each one.

Why do you call yourself Young Rilla?

Well, basically I like to think that I keep it Rilla-than-most. But yeah, that’s what my niggas in the hood call me ya dig? And I’m the youngest of 4 so…yeah.. ‘Tis watta ’tis.. Real Recognize Real Records baby!

What type of music would you say that you make?

I just try to be diverse bro. I know I have a vocab and some insight into a lot of stuff, so I just try to present it in an artistic way that the averagenigga in Nikes and Roc jeans can appreciate. I’m not really one for all the glitz and glamour. I’m not “swag splashing” on hoes or nothing. I’m just a dude from the hood with a knack for wordplay and an outlook on life that’s easy to understand if you’ve ever lived in a place with more murders than job opportunities. So in a sense, I guess I’m a grassroots sorta guy. I am what hip-hop came from and I sound like where it’s headed.Coolbeans.

How long have you been making records?

Records? About 4 years. I “met” Billboard B at 16 and he’s been my executive producer, CEO, and manager ever since. Really, the man has known me since birth. We go waaaaaaaaay back. But he didn’t know I was a rapper and I didn’t know he was into putting out acts until that time. But fuck that, I’ve been a writer since I was like 12. I used to write raps instead of doing class work.

Who were your biggest influences and music and who’s your favorite artists out right now?

I love this question lol. Man My biggest influences change weekly, but some that always float at the top are Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas, Tupac, and Tip. For a nigga like me, that’s like the “Dream Team” right there. I’ve picked up little nuances and tricks of the trade as far as pure FLOW goes. I can thank Jay and Em for a lot of that. I feel like I can twist syllables with the best of them because I study the best of them. Those dudes go ham on every track. Me and the other Mr. Jones share a lot of the same rebel thoughts, ya feel me? He’s real deep and he pushes the envelope all the time. I like that.Pac and Tip pour a certain passion into their music that you can’t help but to feel, and Tip put me onto punch-ins in the booth, lol. I love those guys’ music man.

I know a lot of fans been waiting on you to drop the mixtape, what have you been up to lately?

Uhh, around lol. Man I’ve been doing so much shit bruh. We’ve been throwing Triple R release parties for the various Steel City Music DVD/CD joints. We’re up to Vol 5. now. It’s been real jazzy. I even got some production on there from some of my NT brethren (Shouts to T.I.M.E.). Gorilla Island Vol 1. has done serious numbers and Vol 2. just dropped like yesterday. So it’s safe to say I done jumped off the porch, I just ain’t made it down the block yet. It’s been a matter of my putting the label first and foremost and establishing that brand, ya feel me? But that fix is on the way this summer. Blee’dat. Young Rilla’s yet-unnamed-first-solo-mixtape…… SOON!

What’s your inspiration behind your calling to make music?

The money. Sike. F the money. I make music because there’s always been a song in my head as long as I can remember. That’s it. It’s not that complicated. It hasn’t always been my song though. Back in the day it was Hammer. As I grew up it was Biggie and Pac . Now it’s me. Ya feel me? When I’m depressed, there’s a song in my head (probably Em’s). Music has always been a sort of therapy to me. It’s always been cool to know some obscure punchline buried in track whatever on that one album. Me and my guys still test each other with random ass bet you can’t finish this line moments. hip-hop is just… me.

What was the biggest situation in your life that influenced your music the most?

There you go startin shit lol… Well, my moms passed away 2 years ago when I was 18 and that’s still really tough on me. Hence the song/screenname Dear Winter (Dearwinter219). She was truly my biggest fan, mainly because she actually knows ME and not just the me I let people see. So yeah, that’s been heavy on me. I handle it like a G though. I mean it is what it is. That’s life. Now I just gotta make her proud, even though she was proud of me a long time ago.

If you could choose one artist to collab with on a track, who would it be and why?

Just one? Damn. Well then Outkast is just gonna have to count as one person then. I’m breaking the rules. These cats are BY FAR two of my favorite rappers ever. I mean, just sonically from album to album — these dudes NEVER cease to amaze me. Their ear for beats is so unique and BigBoi is probably the most swag tight nigga in the industry over the past 15 years or so. That’s real. Dre is Dre. What more can you say? What more do you have to say? I’ll tell you what, put me on Skew it on the Bar B Remix and bet I don’t murk off. I dare you…

What’s the best word to describe your music and why?

Real. I bet you didn’t see that coming did you? I mean, I just keep it real man. I’m a real musician. I play the sax. I’m a real nigga . I’m really from the hood and my lyrics are real life. I don’t bullshit and shuck and jive for attention. I’m not making a dance song. My dude, I don’t even know how to dance! I just like real hip-hop about real feelings and real trials and tribulations. I’m not out here saying I sold 10 bricks on my day off or in between classes in high school (read: fronting like 90 % of the industry). I was too busy skipping class to read the dictionary for all that jazz, to be real with you. I’m a rapper, and I’m damn good. Excuse my confidence. Let’s be real, if you want a trapper-that-raps, I ain’t that. If you want hip-POP music, I ain’t that neither. I’m just that guy down the block that’s seen and done a lot of stuff a few times and figured it would be smarter to just rap.

What do you plan to accomplish in music and what are your plans for this year??

Man I’m trying to do the same thing we do every night Pinky. The mixtape will probably be dropping later June or early July. Right now, there’s Gorilla Island Vol 2. in the streets. I’m heavy on that track list. You can expect another Steel City Music compilation in the fall. We’re hitting in all quarters my man. Outside of music though, a nigga need to get himself back in school and on that nursing path once more. Yeah man, Young Rilla is trying to be a male nurse. Save the Greg Focker comparisons. I’m far from a gay lord.. It’s been one man…’Preciate the interview fammo. I’m ghost… — Rilla

Broaden Your Horizons

It’s 2009. The whole “It’s (insert year here)” cliche has been beat to death, but that doesn’t make it untrue. Just keep those words in mind, though…”It’s 2009.

I was speaking to a few people about interracial relationships a while back, some of their views really ain’t politically correct, but they’re not unheard of.

“My momma said if I ever bring home a white girl she’d slap me.”
“I don’t like asians. They’re weird.”
“Date a white guy? Pffft…”

My race/ethnicity/whatever term applies doesn’t and shouldn’t really matter, but for the purposes of this message, I will say that I’m a black male. I grew up in the ‘hood, by way of Gary, IN, so I’m 100% sure you already know what my taste in females was when I was younger. I had to have me a hood chick, or a “ride or die,” as that’s what they call ’em these days. Anybody with a similar background, male or female, can relate.

Ever wonder why, though? It’s no secret. It’s your parents and environment that influences your way of thinking. Everything I said or did relationship wise was tainted by these characteristics that are common for people from ‘hoods across the nation. If you’re black, this probably sounds familiar:

– General mistrust of people of different races (mainly white people)
– Disdain for and humiliation of those who date people of other races (depending on where you’re from, latinas/latinos didn’t really count)
– Was accepted as long as the person of the other race had that loot

Sounds about right?

I was pretty much the same way, until I moved away. The years that went by helped too. I felt like life was too short to be trying to fit the status quo. Just because I’m black and I wanna date a girl that ain’t black doesn’t make me a “sell out.”

The thing is, some of you out there are basically putting yourselves into boxes because of that very reason. You’re scared of what somebody will say. The thought of your friends/family laughing at you or not approving makes you uneasy. What should you do? Shoot them the bird and march to the beat of your own damn drum…only YOU can live your life, so do it. Like I said, it’s 2009. You don’t have a reason to be scared…it’s more accepted now than it was fiddy (no typo) years ago. Live a little.

Broaden your horizons, and date an Indian, Chinese, or white dude/girl. What do you have to lose?

Beware, though…when you have different cultures clashing, you can have good and bad results. All of that’ll be covered next time I bless ya’ll with some knowledge. Now gon out there and pull one of them kinky ass Korean girls you been lookin at on campus.
