On Vicctory

Vicctory has two C's because it means the total annihilation of the opposition. I write this as a Manchester United fan. Football should be a joy to watch, especially when you know the caliber of opposition you're up against. Arsenal FC are a great club, with a great coach and a great manager, but the best leaders have always had the element of luck, grace or favour, whichever you prefer to call it. It was all United yesterday. Kieran Gibbs will forever be known as the youngster who gifted Manchester United the goal that gave the game away, but in reality, it could happen to anyone, not just a 19 year old stripling. In fact, it did happen to John Terry last year in Moscow.
But that's beside the point. The fact is, winners always have much to say about how they won. And that leads me to another winner. Faheem Rasheed Najm, otherwise known as T-Pain, doesn't speak as much as Kanye West, but I personally believe he's the much more creative of the two. But is he the winner? I don't know. What I do know is that more people that I know like T-Pain than do Mr. West, but is that vicctory. Let's get behind true talent and show appreciation to those who really do the work.
By the way, have you heard of Kevin Cossom. He wrote the hooks to Rick Ross' Speeding and Ace Hood's Cash Flow, as well as writing and singing the hooks uncredited on Chamillionaire's Won't Let You Down and Rick Ross' Usual Suspects.
It tells you something doesn't it, the realness isn't always in the face, it's mostly in the make-up.
