Here it is, late but as promised, life advice by Ludacris. And I mean legitimate advice, and not just what I think you should be doing in the bedroom (I’ve already covered that plenty). So if you’re looking for some inspiration to start the year, try the guy who will help you get some and be a better person.
And learning from my mistakes, try not to make ’em twice–just admitting when I’m wrong, trying hard to make it right.
Don’t you ever ask no questions that you really don’t want the answers to.
If you can’t take the heat then get the fuck out the kitchen.
But with God as my navigator I’ll be staying afloat.
And the future looks dim if we don’t get ourselves together.
They wanna talk to ya, so shut up and listen.
Don’t let these devils play you down or belittle your soul, just be happy with yourself and it’s so simple to grow.
Go strap your seatbelts on.
Don’t ever assume nothin.
People too picky these days damn it. Too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny. Have a couple of drinks and quit discriminating.
Cause life is short–if you don’t know this it’ll pass you by.
Power down your inhibitions and power up your inner freak.
And I won’t judge you ‘cause I know that ain’t nobody perfect, but you got some perfect imperfections and that makes you worth it.
Use your brain homie; do the right thing.
No matter how much older we get, man, we all still children at heart. We all make mistakes, it’s all good.
Clean in the workplace, dirty in the sheets.
Because you are who you are when nobody is looking.
Keep one eye open, cause the streets don’t sleep.
And baby, nobody’s perfect in this world of ours; there’s plenty people getting stitches in this world of scars. But over time, pray to God that he can heal your wounds, try to love and love again until they seal your tomb.
You might not agree with our views, but you had to respect ’em.
They like a little danger, and might not admit it, but they on for the chase and they want us to come and get it.
And use your dental floss.
Get through the agony and anger, the pain and strife, and take the necessary steps to try to change my life.
So in the sack talk to me, tell me what’s on your mind.
