I Got Plans

I’m over Xmas already, I’m ready for the ball to drop. Word to Dick Clark and his will to survive. Without further Erykah adieu, here’s YN’s 2008 New Year’s Resolutions:

Send wife flowers. (And not because I messed up. Just cause.)

Continue to lose weight and stay in shape.

B.I. > Friendship

Be a better boss.

Be a better listener.

Organize my music.

Rid myself of crap I don’t need.

Work harder.

Blog consistently. (Yeah I made history tonight but I can’t disappear for two months in the aftermath.)

Finish Jay-Z book. (Whether he likes it or not. Ha!)

Travel more.

Enjoy life more.

Don’t spend dough frivously.

And like my man NCB advises follow the words of Puff Daddy himself: “God first, Get money, and don’t stop.”

LMAO! L’Chaim!

Damn, I’m proud of myself. And props to the young dangerous minds riding with me.

    Dude, you’re doing it.

    When you send those flowers to the Mrs., tell her to remember that she has healthy comp in-house.

    But don’t organize your music. Keep it cluttered.

    STAY UP!!!

    It’s 6:15…do you know where your No-Doz are? Ha, ha! Keep it going, Ell. This is an inspiration for me (a fellow Harris Pub inhabitant), as I fight the urges of rest to witness history in the making. Well, that and organize my Serato. Either way, I’m riding with you, big homie. Keep going…

    Been trying to post but WordPress is not feeling what the MacBook Pro has to offer…

    You can never go wrong a Puff quote for a resolution. This is the man that said, “…ten years from now we’ll still be on top/” in ’97, and is still making ‘hits’ outta Danity Kane & Yung Joc. Still can’t rap worth a damn, but he embraced it and made it ok for the rest of these non rappin niggas to get deals with gimmicks and none of the production/development talent.

    Rap niggas need to get their boast game up, and follow through on the shit they say they’re gonna do.

    Puff > Talk w/o Walkin niggas…

    How are cats staying up, and what music are you listening to right now? Not just YN, but everybody in attendance.

    I’ve never been able to sleep before 3am. Even with wifey on deck. Ever.

    I have a neighbor that has to be a writer. This cat is an older white dude whose house lights get geeked every day at 5am. Can’t lie, the shit is somewhat inspiring.

    The Underwriters’s Resolutions:

    Get a passport.

    Get wifey to stop checking my text messages while I sleep.

    Stack bundles (RIP).

    Make a new EP/mixtape, even if it never gets released (too many people are still asking why I stopped trying to be the best rapper to ever come from Alabama).

    Have lunch again with L.A. Reid.

    Go back to Cali.

    Stop being such a nice guy.

    Finish this fiction novel before spring.

    Write that hot fire for a nationally-published Hip-Hop magazine again (Fuck GRIP).

    Develop a six-pack and flex on South Beach.

    Fart in Rupert Murdoch’s face.

    Eat more fish and less fried chicken.

    Mentor a dope, clueless young writer.

    props on the jay-z book idea. i’ve been thinking that someone needs to write a book about him…even before i heard:

    “Shit, I led a life you could write a book on
    Sex, murder and mayhem, romance for the streets
    Man, and I tell ya, it would be the best seller”
