Straight Outta Compton'

May 28, 2015

Hi Luvs,

"You should be here." Khelani's voice pours through my speaker and echo off my bedroom walls. What inspired this post today, was the album "You Should Be Here".
This will be a bit personal.

Ever since I could remember I knew that I wanted to escape my surroundings. There was more to the world than just Compton, Long Beach, East L.A. and Lakewood Mall. There was more to life than to just graduate high school, I've always craved more.

I felt boxed in and trapped. I tried fitting into my neighborhood, the people, that life and it wasn't me. So with my feet hitting the pavement, I ran away from the streets that raised me.
I don't think I've ever really stopped running.
