No Mistakes

"Now, I made many decisions and made many mistakes
Walked on many lands and swam in many lakes
I did good, did wrong; I got props and pissed on
I was dissed by the system but I still tried to get on
No one could tell me that my style was unhealthy
I never listened, kept spittin' 'til the nay-sayers felt me
Lookin' back, I guess you haters helped me
My fuel, my drive,
All just increased when you hated on Classified
Here's advice, for every rapper startin' out
Don't release a record 'til you're happy with the bars you wrote
My fourth album's the first record I really liked
Before that my flow was too hype and I really couldn't write
So, I took the long way, we could argue all day if it's the wrong way
But sit back and let the song play
Props to Joe Bombay for hookin' me up at the start
I never had the talent but he knew I had the heart

Now understand, what I say
This year, no mistakes
Got here, no fate
Paid dues, won't wait
Made some mistakes and I'll probably make more
Just how it happens when you're try to go forward"

- Classified "No Mistakes" off the album Boy-Cott-In The Industry

This is a great video. I think I actually like it more than the album cut of the song. I like the acapella introduction and how the beat kicks in. I really like the lyrics in this song too. 

If you like what you heard, please head on over to Silent Cacophony to read the transcript of the interview I did with Classified. You can also download the podcast and hear the entire thing for free. So what are you waiting for?
