The same goes for my personal responses to Kickin' It With Your Girlfriend and Real Talk. Also maybe it's that I ain't happy nowadays. I can feel more emotionally connected to his painful tunes these days...
    I'm 20 and I definitely take Kells seriously. but in painful songs, Kells does put humor in there because humor is just a part of life, even if it's involved in hurtful situations.

    for example, there's humor in both songs u're talkin bout:

    Kickin it wit Your Girlfriend: "I apologize for me n her, and everything that went down/ these are the reasons why some girls don't bring they friends around."

    Real Talk: .......do I even need to mention the humor here? Milton? Milton?!?!

    There's humor even in hurtful situations...that's the truth. But I know that only in my head. I can't feel it. Might Be Mine, I can take the humor a lil bit, but the two songs? I don't get it.

    mixmaster, I feel you, but hear me out:

    Kells, I think, is trying to uncover and lay bare EVERY aspect of the various painful situations he sometimes sings about.

    Real Talk, Kickin it wit Your GF, Might be Mine--these are all songs about truly hurtful events. But what is part of Kells' genius is that he rips off the fuckin band-aid and presents the pain as it is. because the facts are that the topics he sings about in these songs are not only painful, but they also can be unexpectedly humorous.

    in Kickin it wit your gf, for example, Kells mentions how, on some level, it may partially be the chick's fault: "these are the reasons why some girls don't bring they friends around." (I'm quoting off the top of my head, so don't bust my balls if that wasn't an exact quote.)

    another example would be the ENTIRE Real Talk song. yes, it's painful, but this song also reveals the ultimate triviality of brief relationships. and how over-fuckin-dramatic they can get.


    as for Might Be Mine, I honestly believe that Kells is tryina do the same thing here--taking a serious situation and removing the fuckin drama from it.

    he of course is acknowledging the seriousness of what's happening (knockin up a random stripper), but I think that cos of his own personal strength, Kells has the courage to say to errbody that, ultimately "shit happens," and we should try to find a "silver lining" in events that we consider to be bad.

    And that if we can't find that so-called silver lining, we should at least tryand find the humor in it. Because, as the saying goes, "I keep on laughin, just to keep from cryin."
