Albums that Changed My Life

Alot of people wouldn't think of me as a music head. I don't really listen to ten thousand songs or artists or catch live shows, or really venture out in my musical tastes. However, there are several albums that growing up spoke my truth. Albums that spoke words that I couldn't speak myself and articulated emotions that, until I heard the song, were brand new to me. This is in no particular order.

Oooooooooooohhh on the TLC Tip- by TLC. This album taught me to be a feminist I think! I remember so many lessons were learned from this album. I can be bad by myself, wear what I want to wear, demand what I want in a relationship and eliminate fake ass friends from my life. Now, I can't say I followed ALL of this advice, but I am glad to have songs that let me know some real ish about life at the ripe old age of 10.

Butterfly changed my life too. The day(s) we ditched to get tickets at Virgin, then to get autographs, were the days that I should have been studying for my AP Physics exam.

I got a 2. Wiz-omp.
