Its not about what you DONT have…cause you don’t have it…so its irrelevant. Whats MOST relevant is….what you do have. So appreciate that.
I can’t decide which is the coolest accomplishment…being the man candy in a dope video by a grammy nominated Natalie @the_floacist fr Floetry, putting a cool $tack in a dope poet’s pocket w no fee at #nfha1k, droppong the album of the year (Have you heard Secret Service Reloaded w @sahlence ? You need that in ya life!) rocking a show in Alaska & meeting the super cool QT @theebonywilliams and playing guitar live on the the radio w @dmegga or making it to Man Crush Mondays. (Thank you @tatorttator) decisions decisions.
A fellow King passed. On June 1st this year and it shook my whole world. Everyone aint a king…this brother was a King. Anyway, t reminded me that Kings are supposed to be great in this time that we are alive. I am supposed to be great and do great thibgs. I have done some great things in my career but since June 1st, I approach everything differently.
I had the pleasure of going I to New Orleans last week to support a youth program called M.I.C. A.M.P.E.D. - Milne Inspiration Center Adolescents Making Positive Educated Decisions. Greatness births legacy and legacy is connected to the future as much as it is the present and the past. This program nurtures the youth of New Orleans in a way that you would have to see to understand but take my word…these kids are loved.
They are also invested in…daily…and $ignificantly and that says a lot. It takes Great investment to produce a great return. The director of the program understands that.
This pic is a collage of a few things. A Mic amped cake (its in the shape of a mic) and one pic is the program director Lekedra Robertson and celebrity guest speaker Lamman Rucker holding the cake. Its me and one of the young boys Orlando…he remind me of the curiosity synonymous with being a KID! And pics of the whole crew at the program looming great!
Id like all of you to share this post and help bring some visibility and support to a great program that is committed to producing great young black men and women. See more at www.themicamped. org and order a T-shirt or donate $5, $10, $20 or $100 to sow into GREATNESS….thankyOOH!
We are doing this because we believe that good rats…not just hood rats live in the projects and because you like it more than smuckers peanut butter n jelly striped sandwiches on white bread…. Exactly!
Amerikkka at New Orleans
For a season it just got heavy
on every leaf
Nuthin else to do but fall on some
Its just better to leave
and I don’t mean on some leave the hood shit
I mean some leave for good shit
You’d be surprised? If I told you it was 2 or 5 times I committed suicide I jumped
BUT I got too much pride n I refused to die
I’m floating thru the sky like sheeeet ain’t nuthin left to do but fly.
Open my wings and look thru my eyes n glide
But that’s what you do sometimes in a moment of weakness til you find the stronger you inside
Its do or die
That was 2011
every day was 911
Had a lil brown angel on my shoulder
when i told her how i was just a deep of shade of blue inside
she said all she wanted to do was cry then she stopped and asked me
to ask me
who am I?
I Keep On Moving guy
You ever look back at what you survived like ow that hurt!
but what I find astounding is
After i climb that mountain I write about it
I touch you and you feel me
How that work?
Im bout that work! Moments dont last cause they not supposed to
every minute is close to the end in just a moment
So listen to me lil missy
Before you kiss me Im a gypsy I won’t be around long
She think its cute but its the truth
Turn around and Im gone
Then I turn around and put your name in a song
Turned our pain to a poem
So our love can live on
Thats who I am and what I do
If you still need an introduction then use my name as an instruction
Listen fam im a simple man
w hip hop for a heartbeat n im from the block where its shark week and when the bark meets bite dark meets white wrong meets….its gone be a long night
Aint no adjustin this cold heat
It’s a lot of Mrs Martins w no justice n no sleep
and its blood in the concrete
No affiliations but
real recognize real n dont need no syndication so
niggas love it when KoM speak word sound power
Used to spit verbs n nouns out on the curb rounds for hours for free
just for Love n Hip Hop with everybody watching me
now I wont spit a word or noun without an absurd amount of a fee cause like Love n Hip Hop
Everybody’s watching me
If I win, they win I’m everybody’s lottery pick
so I gotta be the shit or we all
get shitted on that’s the kinda shit I’m on
God bless my life
Trying to guess this right
Make a left at the light
No body said nothin so
I guess its right
I’ll look while you listening Since you look like you listening I ain’t after the girls im after the world
Then after the world I ain’t gotta ask for the girls
Hip hop got grandchildren
and they spoiled
They gettin all the toys and the women but they not spitting like they hear a clock ticking
I was at the bottom of the bottom like I don’t know whatsup
But it got me feelin like I got no where to go but up
Touch em n make em open up like elevator doors
How dat work?
Im bout that work
