Defining the intersection between listening and living

GGGF Friday #2

So last week we started this installment series. I told you that the essence is to keep me honest, consistent and to continue expressing the things that bring the simplest joy.

Think about that what brings you joy. What is one of the simplest pleasures you can think of? Mine is that I am thankful for my wife and daughter who bring me so much joy.

The song entitled, GO Go Gadget Flow made me think about one of my favorite 80’s cartoons Inspector Gadget. For those that do not know what inspector gadget is there is a picture to the right. The cartoon focused on a detective with tons of gadget protecting his niece and foiling the plans of the main villain Dr. Claw. Much like most of the 80’s cartoons, it was simple in its premise and delivery. What captivated me most about the cartoon is how Inspector gadget had the right gadget for any situation. This is why Lupe’s flow for me is a classic verse. His cadence, style, and rhyme are just right for his flow. I strive that in everything that I do for process improvement, blogging and being a father that I endeavor to be like both inspector gadget and Lupe’s flow. That I always have the right tools for the job. Utilizing the simple to keep the flow going. So I leave you with the lyrics, what is your flow? Do you keep it simple or are things complex?
How do you utilize your go go gadget flow?

So here are the lyrics for Go Go Gadget Flow by Lupe Fiasco-The cool:

[Verse 1]
I’m back, I’m back
I’m cool, I’m cool
West side representative
All me, no ghost, no 16-bit like Sega Genesis
All G-ball on the board, Soundtrakk on the track
Gemini on the job, Shayla G on the G
Sarah Green for the green,free Chilly
And I’m back on my thing for the listeners’ ears
What you are a-bout to-to witness is
Lu new valuable album 2

Move like a nigga supposed to
Get your dough on the go with the flow
That I’m holding

[Verse 2]
Love, got the windy city on my back
So I’m back on my grizzle like a bearskin rug
Plus I’m laying on the floor, blame it on the Go
Little rapper turn it out cause I’m very pluh
I convert I can work anywhere in the world you can ask my brother Hugg
He’ll concur, that I’m surrious with the words with the man up above
Thank you very much
That I got what I got and I’m at where I’m at like an a in a circle
With a pay little Urkel
What they say when they see O.G
From the F to the F to the amazing verbals
They race in circles like they racing a gerbil
I race in a circle like I’m racing a horse
I’m racing a Porsche while they racing in place
They race in a cage, I race on a course
Course, that case in the court did not defer the dream
I am still a raisin in the sun, raging against the machine

[Bridge]
From the M-A-D-I to the S to the O-N
Potent, to get you open
Move like a nigga supposed to
Get your dough on the go with the flow

[Verse 3]
Like hey, hey I’m the boss
Rock Junya Watanabe Lacoste
Beyond clean, in phenom jeans
Little rap Isaac Asimov
I let my momma in the rhyming that she raised me off
A 80s baby on fire like a safety off
Got my hood riding high on them 28s
Off of everything I spoke like a 84
And they in love with him and I’m in love with them
And we’ll never ride dubs again
No we won’t
Trying to get Above the Rim
A little too short to dunk
So we donk

From the M-A-D-I to the S to the O-N
Potent, to get you open
Move like a nigga supposed to
Get your dough on the go with the flow
