uncle mac .

I've talked about Mac Lethal before. Mr. David McCleary Sheldon is a Kansas City native, and oh, did I mention he's a rapper? I'm not big into too much rap -- but this guy has changed my perspective. There are some people that can just really spit, and he's one of them. But he's not just about the rap. There is so much more than laying down words. This guy spills the emotion out. His stuff reminds me of the way Eminem leaves it all out there and doesn't hold back. And some of the songs are funny, while some are downright serious. One in particular comes to mind, one he posted on Youtube called "I Can Feel It in the Air."

You should really take a moment to watch it.

This is real stuff. But most importantly, was what he tweeted the other night. Usually his tweets are pretty entertaining, but lately the stuff has been real down to earth and real thoughtful. Here's what he said:

"Being an artist is a special thing. Fuck worrying about your friends who have office jobs and golf memberships. Who could live like that!? Instead of "grinding" and "hustling" and treating music like it owes you money: try respecting it as a tool that saves billions of lives. Now get inspired and show us the genius you have hidden inside of you."

I love it. Every word. From the heart, no bullshit, no filter. Inspiration without limitation. And that's how it should be. So thanks Uncle Mac.
