fav lyric from a song

I have too many to count but most of them are from Jay-Z.

who and what inspires you?

Well I can go conventional and say the obvious: Oprah, Obama, Michelle O and then there’s the unconventional: Jay-Z, Rihanna’s, Grace Jones, then there’s Martha Stewart, Grace Jones, Serena Williams, and even Kanye. I think they all have one thing in common: going through a sh*t storm of criticism and this inspires me… because the amount of criticism you can handle is tantamount to the amount of success you experience.
