    How interesting of a video.

    I fall victim to that type of sh*t too!

    If I feel like I’m forced to do something, then the voice into my head says that i can abandon it, but I don’t. The fact that I stick with things that i feel like i’m forced to do gets me quite angry.

    Great post. I was wandering what happened to you. I can relate to what you talked about here because as a rapper I feel that on a daily basis. I get the best out of it by listening to music and trying my best to come up with good lines.

    When it gets the best of me I still try to write, but ultimately end up watching TV or going on the computer. I’d never heard the creative struggle described as beating the little hater, but it’s definitely an apt description.

    not only do i have a little hater i have a little groupie in too, lol. The little groupie says, “yo lets make a beat, your real ill with that music shit” and the little hater says “these fools wont understand your talent so, fuck it go play some madden or something” The little hater stay winning though.

    Good video Jay. I know exactly how you feel.

    I’m a apparel designer and in my line of work it is very common to either hit a creative roadblock or to become side tracked and start procrastinating. What works best for me to silence my little hater is to make sure- no matter what- that I at least make some progress each day, even if it is not that much. To slowly chip away at your goal is a lot better than doing nothing at all because at the end of the week or what ever you will be feeling pretty shitty if you look back and have nothing to show for yourself. As long as you don’t make a habit out of it working at a slower pace for a day or two is cool.

    One other thing that works is to take a break sometimes. I think about it like this; “why am I slacking? Am I not feeling what I do or do I just need to get away for a minute”? In my experience, taking a day off, without thinking of my work at all, and than coming back to it later can be much more useful than sitting at my computer day after day not getting anything done. You can come back refreshed and with a clear mind ready to take on whatever comes your way.

    My ‘Little Hater’ just makes me even more lazy than i usually am. So nothing ever gets done and i end up refreshing the NahRight & XXL pages for updates

    Little haters are whupping my ass right now, as far is writing something goes. I’m straight with my visual creations right now though…but man. Thanks for this post…

    Oh yeah, my little haters like to whisper…they are very laid back.

  • blacker cracker

    i went to illdoctrine.com and saw where you said you would put out two videos a week. I was just about to ask you what happened to that shit, but i guess you answered that question for me. you need to just keep bringing the heat where you give insight us ongame. SOMETIMES, haters can be good for a lil constructive criticism. everyday is another day to learn something new and hone your craft. you just gotta keep mannin up

    i don’t think by the little hater he would include the little guys thats says “they won’t understand your talent”…..hmm nope not at all

    those little haters…damn bastards.

    i’m feelin’ that term, cus procrastination and perfectionism can be some assholes…i know i’m in a position right now that i shouldnt be in, because of these little haters…and i just think that in order to beat your little haters, it just has to be mind over matter. its all about self-control and the drive that you have to accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

  • DSREAD

    I write and honestly it for me what I hear in my head is either “do it tomorrow” or you where never good enough to begin with” like I blog I have gone through 5 or 8 blogs because I get no comments most of the time but you just have to work through it and and even though it feels like your not making a difference now that just having it out there is making a difference because you are putting your work in.

  • Manifess25

    Very good video blog, I know for a fact a lot of people can relate to this so called little hater. I know I can, I’m a huge perfectionist and I believe it separates me from the norm. But it also so hinders me, like when I’m making a beat or even writing, I can complete a whole production and scrap it at the end because I didn’t think it was up to my caliber of work. I usually think of it as a hit or miss situation. Now when it comes to procrastination I believe it’s all a confidence thing. You might think it’s your mind playing tricks on you and it could be but deep down inside I think it’s us battling with confidence. When your not confident your unsure and that can lead to procrastination. I believe the only remedy is to work through it and eventually you will work yourself out of it.

    • Allen_J

      Manifess I’m the same exact way when it comes to writing songs man. I’ll start it but about half way through I’ll stop liking. Sometimes I scrap it other times I keep you never know when you might wanna reinvent something you already had or that thought process that you originally had comes bak. Sometimes I feel as though the vision is loss of what you’re trying to come up with due to so many other thoughts of what it could’ve been or maybe of what it should be go through my head.

  • Mr.Wang

    Remy Ma looks like a dude straight up. Her bangs make her shit look even more like a wig. Lil’ Kim, as plastic as that bitch is, would at least still have that pudgy little ass to stick my face in. I’d straight up lay on the bed and let her plop that fat little ass right on my mouth–ass cheeks falling down the sides of my face. I don’t give a fuck if she was stank, clean, furry, shaved…nothing, just sit them holes by my mouth and I’m a lick both of em clean. Asses only stink until you lick on em for a few seconds, so I’d man up and just poke my tongue up into her tight (loose?) anus and just go nuts eating that. Of course, she would be deep throating me at the same time getting my dick all sloppy wet. Mmmm… After she got me nice and hard, I’d tell her to shit on my dick. I’d stick my slick pole right up into that butt and tell her to start shitting. I’d be fun to watch the shit squirt from out the sides of my dick while it’s still in her. The smell would be incredible. After that, I’d tell her to flip around and put her little clit in my mouth and piss in my mouth. I’d drink all that yummy Gatorade and just let it run out the sides of my mouth and drip off my chin. Then I’d make her beat my dick til it got all scratched and red and I’d go raw dog up in her pussy. Fuck that shit for about 5 minutes then pull her close and hold her tight and bust off deep inside of her… Ooowee! I got to go to the bathroom!

  • http://TheBeatniks.blogspot.com Seattle Slim The Genius

    Good post/vlog. I was wondering where you went and I’m glad you came back. I love your VLOGS so you better tell your little hater to go straight to hell because you have at least one fan. That last one you did on John Cena vs CNN was on point. Keep it up.

    jay smooth, i believe you just summed up my 1st semeseter in college. as an art major i perfectly understand your perfectionist and procrastonater argument, i deal with the little haters all the time when i’m trying to make these projects just right, but the little haters will not prevail because you and i got talent, no matter what we may believe from day to day.

  • Allen_J

    My hater always says this isn’t good enough. I’ve been through stage 2 so many times it’s ridiculous. To stop stage 2 I’ve come up with a plan of letting myself brainstorm stuff for a couple of hours everyday or every other day so i can stay with fresh ideas. I’ll like a song sooo much until it sucks then I trash it for a while. I can also say that when I’m recording and my singing voice isn’t agreeing with me that day. Like I’m not really feeling the song at all. Other days it’s like everything clicks and makes sooo much sense.
