    kiniesis i dont spell for crap, but latin word based old dictionary should explain it better than me and in fact you might already know this or even perform this ancient spiritual practice of inward reflection and perpetual striving toward betterment of ones soul and balance with looking to be better completely for your own self no one else. Your lyrics reflect introspection and admit some of the things you were less than perhaps right about and show a bit of this technique. ITS REFRESHING TO SEE IN HIP HOP, IF NOT FOR INNOVATION THE WEIGHT OF EROGANCE IN THIS CROSS SECTION OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY COULD SINK IT LIKE THE TITANIC NO SHIT. YOU HAVE STYLE I ALWAYS LIKED THE HUGE PRODUCTION LOOK NO ONE SAID SELLING IS BAD, BUT DO IT WITH AS MUCH TASTE AND STYLE CLASS AND THOUGHT AS POSSIBLE…. YOUR ALWAYS GOING TO WIN IF YOUR DEDICATION IS FIRST TO YOUR OWN INNER SELF AND NOT THOSE INNER CIRCLE OF PEOPLE …. SORRY FOR THE PARAGRAPH …
