Will.i.am - Chase Your Dream

Will.i.am shares an unlikely story about listening to your gut, and tells how he ultimately achieved his dream of opening up for his heroes A Tribe Called Quest.

Transcript:


"My mom said, 'You need to get a job.' I said, 'I already have a job. I'm just not getting paid yet.' My dream, I remember a long time ago my ex-girlfriend said, 'I want to take you to see Tribe Called Quest for your birthday."

"Go, go, go, go, go, go!"

"I was like 'no.' She was like, 'What are you talking about, I just want to-'. 'You can't take me to see Tribe Called Quest for my birthday. I don't want to see them.' She said, 'That's your favorite group?" I was like,'Yeah, but I'm not supposed to see them like that.' She's like, 'What are you talking about?'

"I was like, 'I'm supposed to see them on the side when we're opening up for them. You'll see one day we're going to open up for Tribe Called Quest.' "

"And it happened?"

"Right, three years later."

"What did you feel when you finally opened for them?"

"I told them that story. I was like, 'You don't understand, Qtip. My ex-girlfriend a long time ago -- I mean at the time she was my girlfriend -- my girlfriend bought me tickets and I didn't want to see you guys because I wanted to see you like I'm seeing you tonight, on the side after opening up for you guys. You guys are my heroes.' "

"That's a crazy story because-"

"Sometimes, you know, sometimes you're like, my gut tells me that it's going to be this. I see it, working on my dream, that's my job. If I'm going to pay attention to my nightmare I should be able to work on my dream. What some, one of them is going to take my energy, I'd rather give my energy to my dream than my nightmare."
