So i was listening to this Jay Z song called "History". Its a good song but in it he was talkin bout acne as a teenager n it made me think.

"So now I'm flirting with death

Hustling like a G while victory wasn't watching took chances repeatedly

As a teenage boy, before acne, before I got proactive I

couldn't face she

I just threw on my hoody, and headed to the street

I swear I met success we lived together shortly

I`ve been in it down defeat "

Makes me think that u can still be what you want to be and follow ur dreams after u get through ur acne struggle. or even with it. Its just a small bump in the road, that feels really fucking big. N i was suprised wen i heard this.

O btw, kinda gay he braught up proactive tho lol.

It sounds less about being what you want to be and having the courage to follow your dreams and more like a fucking ProActive commercial.

What a fucking sellout.

lol he's not exactly talking about acne though....it's just word play and metaphors, talking about him hustling in the streets when he was young. so he's young and most people get acne at that age, "before he got proactive" proactive is more than just an acne medicine (THAT DOESN'T WORK!) it actually has some meaning..."she" is success....so yeahh...good song...probably could explain it a little better, but it's late

Many celebs have skin problems. Personally, the surprise factor died years ago.

Yeah I agree theres more to the verse than you might think from first reading it and I think Kraven has explained it well.

So now i`m flirting with death

Hustla like a cheat, while victory wasn`t watching

Took chances repeatedly

As a teenage boy, before acne

Before i got proactive, i couldn`t face sheet

I just threw on my hoodie and headed to the streets

I swear i met success, we lived together shortly

A success is like lust, witch is good for the touch

Witch is good for the moment, but she`s never enough

Everybody`s had her, she`s nothing like me

A success is all i got, unfortunately

But i`m burning down the block

I`ve been in it down defeat

But something tells me that there`s much more to see

Before i get killed, cos i can`t get robbed

So before me, success and death bandage

I gotta get lost, i gotta find free

We gotta be together to make history

(chorus)

Lol, so he had acne? And he used proactiv? :X

I use proactiv and it's working fine....

It's number #1.

Anyhow, I made a post about this today! I didn't see this one!

Oh and I love this song. :)

Acne doesn't look that bad on black people

they get away with it better than whites and asians.

Serena Williams used to have bad skin

but it wasn't as noticeable as Sharapova for example.
