when should I FILTER?

The better I get at this music thing, the more I struggle with knowing when to take advice and when to trust myself. It seems like everybody has ideas to offer all of a sudden and I can't help but wonder how much of it is jealousy and how much of it is genuine... There is a balance that must be reached. I have trouble refusing the input of others even when I know that I'm right and they're wrong, like I have some kind of obligation to be humble... but part of me... deep down... suspects that certain people will only become more critical as I have further success. Where is the line? What advice should be filtered? How do you maintain your approach without being arrogant? Fact is, some input is bad input.. and often times the people that offer it aren't nearly as good as me... but it fucks with me still... like... I want to please everybody... but that's impossible so...
Anyways,,,,,,

tell me why am I bumping this DREAM ALBUM?? LOL!!


The dude actually calls himself the "R&B Gorilla".... is it because the production is bananas? don't know... lyrically though, the dude is damn near an infant... but it works... besides infants are cool and shit... I fux with infants (LYRICALLY SPEAKING)...

Is it possible that The Dream swagger jacked this baby for his album art??

I'm with you Dekk, People on tour are always telling me what I should and should not play...I usually feel like they have no idea what they are talking about but other times I feel like maybe they might be right. When do I filter?
