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!
