English 1000 11/4 Discussion
The song that I chose that was my favorite to identify with was one of many. I chose Nightmares from the Bottom by Lil’ Wayne. I chose this song because he says several things that I could relate to. This song talks about how being at the top is a hard job. It is talking about how he is the shit and how others try to be the shit as well. He talks about how people try to bring him down but it doesn’t work. It talks about how he doesn’t have to worry about anything because he is handling his business and he isn’t going to be stopped. He also talks about how only God can judge him so he is going to continue doing what he has to do for him and the judgment of others doesn’t matter. I chose this song because we have a lot in common in this song. In my small home town, I am known by a lot of people. Some like me and some do not but I don’t let it stop me because I still made it out of high school with a 3.7 GPA. I also made it to college without a problem and I am doing just fine. Many people try to do the things that I do but don’t quite pull it off, just as people try to do the things that Wayne does. I don’t worry about any of the haters’ opinions because it still doesn’t change the fact that I am the one that they would love to be. Wayne and I both go through the same type of things as far as the haters and the people trying to bring us down. My haters aren’t as extreme as his are but I feel like I can really relate to some of the things that he says. The only difference between us is his money and fame but I may as well have it because people treat me as if I have both. This song accomplishes its attempted meaning because he makes it known that he is saying that he’s still the shit and he’ll stop at nothing to remain at the top.

    What song did you choose for your favorite to identify with? Why did you choose it? What does it say? How does it accomplish its intended message (happy, sad, angry etc)?
