This is a story about a boy from Ohio becoming a man in LA.

The world will hear our message, one person at a time. One song at a time, one soul at a time. The truth of what we speak is undeniable, so we just need work harder to spread it. #okdbm  (at First Church Of God Center Of Hope)

This might become my favorite @Common song after last night. It’s an honor to share a birthday with you fam. Proud of you. You never quit, never cried in the media about the respect you don’t get, you just keep trucking on. Much love to you for that.

Whenever my fellow Christians ask me who my favorite Hip Hop artist is, and I tell them Jay-Z, they bug out. But real talk, I modeled my career after his, from my live show, to my album tracklists, even to the way I post on social media. He and I have different world views, but his thoughts unlocked the door to mine and I will forever be indebted. I’ll take the criticism, because I know that God used him to touch me. This unplugged album will be forever one of my favorites of all time, but ESPECIALLY this version of Song Cry. #tbt

This is a photo from a very long time ago, when James Brown was funky, David Ruffin needed the Temptations and when Michael was a toddler. A time when the music was rich with culture, love, and humility. However, the powers that be got smart, they saw how powerful music is, gave some kids some tax written off cash and let them make music, then promoted their underdeveloped point of view to the world. And only promoted that view, inspiring other underdeveloped kids to make the same type of songs without guidance to what may come of their ‘work.’ It’s funny how the tables turn. I wouldn’t buy most of what is presented to me, through mainstream media, as ‘our music’ today. #okdbm #hiphoplives

This was a photo taken at the McDonalds on Latijera. I really don’t understand how the state of California can know @mcdonalds is killing people and have no intentions on shutting them down. I just don’t get it.

Leading the @mtmtour14 workshop yesterday @camppondo Making sure they know that there story is inherently unique. ‘There are different narratives in Hip Hop. All black men aren’t like this…’ #mythoughtsmatter #camppondo #okdbm #hiphoplives (at Camp Pondo)

Back in March I had this idea to start a tour to help students tell stories that they thought no one cared about. I called it @mtmtour14. Three months later we have our first stop, @camppondo in Running Springs, CA! Follow the official tour page to watch the beauty unfold!

This is the Cloud Gate. I refused to post a picture of it at first. I saw no point in this oversized ‘metallic’ bean that everyone takes pictures of. However, I had no insight about it. It’s supposed to reflect the beauty of the city and the diversity of all the people who visit it. It was originally three pieces ( the artist wanted them to resemble a drop of mercury) but they had to merge them together in this shape to keep them from falling through the ground and crushing the restaurant & parking structure below. The artist hates that most people call it the bean. The park historian shared this info with me.  Yet, another reason to keep art in schools. How many people has this sculpture given joy? Ten of millions I would suppose.
