Big K.R.I.T. - “CADILLACTICA” Coming Soon (Trailer)

I Lose my mind everytime i see this

ATTENTION! This is a rant! You don't have to read it!

I live in the South and I am not racist! I only know two people who are racist. One is a family member who lives in Wyoming, and the other is also a family member who is from Austria. I have absolutely no problem with black people. Many of the smartest, kindest, funniest people I have met are black. 

I live in the South and I do NOT sound like Jeff Foxworthy! I also know how grammar helps a sentence say what I mean it to say. Example? With the use of proper grammar, the cannibalistic sentence  ”Let’s eat grandma” becomes “Let’s eat, grandma.”

I live in the South and I do not tell everyone who disagrees with me that they are going to hell. Then again, a lot of Christians would say I am a blasphemer because I believe God created the earth and left. 

I am firmly pro-choice.

I don’t like Nascar.

I don’t gossip.

I don’t eat ocra.

I mow my lawn.

I do not have any busted cars left to rust in the grass.

I don’t say y’all.

I don’t own a gun.

The only thing I know about moonshine is that it’s illegal.

I’ve never passed a farm that was growing tobacco, cotton, sugar, or corn. The only ones I’ve seen are strawberry and blueberry farms.

I don’t care for country music unless it’s from the 90s. For some reason I love just about anything that came about in the 90s.

I think Paula Deen’s recipes are nasty. You don’t need fat to make food delicious!

I’m not the only person who doesn’t fit into the mold of what most of the US thinks Southerners fit into, and I’m mad that people can be so ignorant that they think we are all the same.

If you’re southern, reblog this and include how you’re different!

Believing in this dead thing between us, believing in lost causes once they are really, truly lost, is a geographical inheritance. Having been born below some invisible, sentimental line beleaguers my soul with fight for sinking ships, for the exiting shadow of my lover in the front door, for drunken mothers screaming spit. I must take the reality of all these situations in stride; must drown them in the well in my breast and make sure only magnolias bloom on my face. Perhaps this is the grace learned from a sweltering, defeated home place; that although the water be fetid, the blossoms may be sweet.

people all the time (in person it makes more sense) ask me where im from

and when i tell them RI they laugh and say “really”?! and im just like um ya. Most people if not all that i come in contact with say i have a southern accent. It’s funny because i have never lived or spent any extended periods of time anywhere down south except for maybe vacations. I can hear it some times too and i just kinda smile lol. My friends call me out on it all the time too! they all ways come up to me and say shit like “how ya’ll do’nnn” and “howdy” LOL ya and the other week at work my boss’s daughter who is about my age (19-22 ill say)  asked where i was from i told here here in town and she was like “NO WAY i figured from some where else cuz you know you got um ? an um?” i said “a southern accent”? and she said ya and went on to tell me how it was funny i had one being from RI and i just smiled then she said “oh and dont worry i think its really cute i like southern accents”’ I just kinda stood there like thanks hahah but ya this post is pointless lol so talk to me before i go on about some more boring shit. k hanks =)
