If 13-Year-Old Youtube Rapper Krispy Kreme is Following His Dreams, Why Can’t We? (Haters Beware)Posted on June 13th, 2012
A minute into Krispy Kreme’s music video below, Haters Wanna Be Me, and I knew I was watching greatness. A fluffy-sweet-gangsta who damns the cost, his punching bag, and the anaconda who tries to swallow him, all to lay hold of what we all wish to obtain. And if Krispy Kreme is doing it, what are we afraid of?
Here’s three glazed truths Krispy Kreme teaches us about how to take a big bite out of our dreams.
1. We Need Friends Who Will Support Us
You think Krispy Kreme makes this video without his friend Money Maker Mike taking his shadow punches like Rocky vs Ivan Drago? Doubtful.
Behind every great person is a great friend. Too often we try to Lone Ranger our dreams. We all still need a little help from our friends.
2. Remember Your Past Victories
Life not going as you planned?
Failure feeling all too familiar?
As Krispy Kreme shows us over and over, when life’s holding us down we just need to sit cross-legged on the basement floor and surround ourselves with our trophies. Remember the success from whence you came. That quarter-life crisis looks a little less dire in the reflection of your 6th grade swimming trophy.
3. Lather Haters in Invisible Cream
“Talk crap and I’ll give you a scar. Talk crap I’ll throw eggs at your car”.
We all need to sip a little of Krispy Kreme’s patented Hater-B-Gone.
People make fun of you when you front flip? Who cares?
Mom and dad get a little nervous when you’re busting rhymes while perched in a tree like a monkey. Perfect. Us dreamers eat comfortable for breakfast.
As Krispy Kreme shows us with every flying kick to his punching bag, the possibility for embarrassment and greatness usually exist in the same space.
Let all the cowards watch from the sidelines as we roundhouse our way to victory.
Krispy Kreme you are supreme in teaching us all what it means to truly chase our dreams.
