Masta Ace - Slow Down
This is off of Masta Ace and MF DOOM’s “collab album” MA_DOOM: Son of Yvonne. I say “collab album” since MF DOOM isn’t even featured on it, even though he was supposed to be; however, every beat on the album was produced by MF DOOM (previously in his career). I had been waiting anxiously for a new Masta Ace album for ages, and this isn’t exactly what I was hoping for. His 2001 album Disposable Arts and his 2004 album A Long Hot Summer are still in my top 10 favorite hip-hop albums of all time. This album is great, but far from being a classic. Regardless though, Masta Ace still contributes his lyrical intelligence and his colorful story telling to make some very enjoyable songs. Slow Down is my favorite song off of the album.
My Song Rating: 9.0 out 10
vves:Radiohead // Creep
I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special
My favourite song forever
David Karp, Tumblr’s founder, dropped out of Bronx High School of Science at 14 to focus on computers. He just sold Tumblr to Yahoo! for $1.1 billion at the age of 26.
It’s the same story over again. Bright kid going to a prestigious school drops out, learns new technology, and becomes extremely wealthy. I don’t know if there’s any clearer message than that that shows you that you are ultimately in control of how successful or wealthy you become. Don’t blame the lack of schooling. Don’t blame your teachers. Don’t blame your parents.
If you really want to make it in this world, go out there and learn, innovate, and sell. If you’re seeking advice or a place to learn how to code, then I’ve already spent hundreds of hours providing those for you already:

And when you are ready, and think you have what it takes, then pick up this book and learn from my mistakes and successes. It’ll save you a lot of time by not having to learn all the tips on your own like I had to do: http://regoapps.com/lifehacked
Interesting side note: David and I were in the same high school at the same time. Another person at that school at the same time, Grace Wong, went on to become a Hong Kong TV star. I was just watching one of her shows the other day. Maybe there was something in the air at the place at that time.
