On a Monday in Grand Rapids, @grstellas is the only place to be!
If you aren’t from the city, you’d leave thinking GR is rich with diversity and culture.

If you are a regular of The Retort, you know that is the community/space that we have built!

These people tell me so often how much this show means to them, but they don’t know how much they all mean to me - they literally keep me pushing forward.

Thank you all for helping to close out an incredible year, see you all in 2018!

More themes, bigger features, more nights that are local-centric.

Life can be such a rollercoaster, it is crazy how one week can feel like a month.

Monday - I have a BLAST in San Antonio and have fun featuring at Blah Blah, at the end I fell in love with the people of SA. When we were leaving I found out that a friend of mine has committed suicide, I will say it as others haven’t.
Tuesday - Car breaks down (Get car fixed, have a blast featuring at Austin Slam)

Wednesday - Car gets towed at our show in Houston. (Also had Whataburger for the first time and had a blast making new family at @wanpoetry)

Thursday - Party with new/old Austin friends one last time.

Friday - Show in Dallas where we met some of my new favorite poets.
Also drove 12 hours to Colorado Springs when the show ended at 11pm.

Saturday - Car Breaks down in Colorado Springs, but I have the pleasure of making new friends, and falling in love with the people at Hear Here Poetry!

Sunday - When we arrive back at our car, someone has stolen all of our possessions from it. But then a Mechanic heard our story, fixed the car, and got us to Denver where we fell in love with Merc Slam!
I’ve never left a Feature so inspired to write.

Now it is Tuesday, and we are in Fort Collins, CO.
I’m exited to spend my last 2 days here at the coffee shops writing, and the nights making new friends.

Shall the memories continue, hardships pause, and laugher never end.

So, this picture perfectly explains our night at “Blah, Blah, Blah Poetry Open Mic” in San Antonio, Tx.
But what do you think it means?! ❤️❤️❤️😂😂😂💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🔥 Fantastic community, dope artists, and the best people.

PEAM doesn’t sound as good as CREAM, but poems truly Rule Everything Around Me.

I am so proud of @iamautopilot and @rachel_effin_gleas after this last week.

But I’m more proud of these students, nearly 50 students shared their stories, feelings, opinions, and demons with their peers!

These are our future leaders, and I’ve never been so honored to help them find their voices.

Go Diatribe!

Them boys sharp!

Some of the best entertainers, artists, and organizers in Grand Rapids are also those I hold dear.

Yesterday at @creativemorningsgr I was the featured speaker, my brother @iamautopilot surprised me and slid through, and @abisadrianbutler was on the 1’s & 2’s.

I digested and discussed Death with 60+ West Michigan Creatives, I made new friends, and
This talk sold out in 10 MINUTES
(And had a 30 person waiting list)! Unpacking isn’t always pretty, but owning your demons always feels freeing.

Hold those you love close, and put as much positivity as you can in the world while you can.

@sglabdetroit put on an incredible event last night in Detroit.
@wtlthepoet and @natashatmiller organized one hell of an event!

Michigan Poets - If you see one of these events, you should absolutely register to compete! $1000 in Cash Prizes, amazing crowd, live streamed event, and tons of great talent!

Until we meet again Detroit!
P.s. this gave me some DOPE marketing ideas.
P.s.s. Tonight I’m going to be featuring in Lansing, Mi - I hope to see my people there!

Flashing - Lights, Lights, Lights, Lights!
*Cue Lupe Instrumental*

A picture during our October East Coast #UnpackingTour Feature Series. I think this was taken at “Busboys and Poets” in VA?

Tonight (Saturday @ 6pm) I will be competing for $1000 with a ton of other Poets in a Science Themed Poetry Slam at The Artists Village in Detroit, Mi.
Tomorrow (Sunday @ 2:30pm) I will be at The Dublin Square Irish Pub in Lansing, Mi - Speaking with the Lansing Poetry Club.
I would love to see some of my Detroit/Lansing people in the house, but even if I don’t
Keep chasing your dreams until they become a reality my friends!

I spy, with my little eye, someone who never dresses up rocking Jordan 4s with a red button up!

This year I was a Grand Rapids Business Journal 40 Under 40 Honoree (Top 40 Business, Non Profit, and Community Leaders Under The age of 40)

I’m so proud of the team, community, and city around me.
The next step is getting these students scholarships, some HUGE annual events, and steps closer to a creative space.

I plan on beating this years progress every year, so everyone around me can spread their wings, and so we can teach others how.

Remember your dreams, set goals, and work your butt off making them a reality.

Thank you for the memories Indy!
Thank you for the pictures @kpfeelfotos - if anyone is ever in Indy looking for a photographer, hit them up!

For those that want to know, my boy @cantbeshik did these boots!

The crowd was incredible, the caliber of artistry was fire, the hosts were dope, and I couldn’t ask for more.

This month I had the absolute honor of featuring at one of the most beautiful venues I have ever visited.
If anyone is ever in Indy, check out #VOCAB at The White Rabbit Cabaret!

Now that is a beautiful group of folks right there. These are some of my favorite people on the planet, and they all decided to come chill with me on my birthday.

These are some of the most talented, and powerful people that I know.

I am so lucky to have them around me. ❤️❤️❤️
