if u wanna be humble, cool...... but just bc thats ur personality dont mean errybody else should be like u........if i or anybody else wants to be cocky and live everyday backing up their word, then what does that have to do with you? the advantages of being humble are great i must admit tho being humble allows u to never be expected to exceed a certain standard..... being humble allows u to be able to save face incredibly easy being humble allows u to slip thru cracks..... yea, they're pretty nice advantages, if ur just an okay/decent producer with connects or what not..... prime example is 9th wonder........a below average producer, but due to his humbleness, he has been able to build a small nest in the game with the same snare, same boring samples and same boring chops...... but he'll never break thru.....and besides, the only reason he got that Jay slot was bc primo couldnt make it to the studio, went thru 50 beats with jay, jay didnt like any of them and jay HANDED him a sample to chop....why? bc Jay felt bad for that nigga and helped him out.....bc 9th is humble thats great....if ur a below-average/average producer but what about the producers that dont need to resort to that? what about the producers that have a sound that'll hold up on its own should they be humble too? what happened to just being respectful....but confident at the same time? why niggaz gotta tuck their tail between their legs? this is music entertainment and if u aint pumpin yaself up....then who is? if u dont trully believe in yaself, then who the fuck else is gonna believe? i dont think niggaz trully kno what humble is......i'm respectful......but i refuse to be humble......being humble is to lower your own importantance, be less proud.....that aint me and thats not how i was brought up anyways, thats my 2cent on niggaz preachin that humble shit.
