In this world we live in, it seems all too often people are attached to the things they think they “love”. Could be their blackberry, iPad, or their car. The veteran rapper KRS ONE said it best back in 1990 on his classic ‘Love’s Gonna Get’cha (Material Love)’: “a lot of people out here say “I love my car or I love my chain or im just in love with that girl over there”.
