I was flying home yesterday on #airmaxday and didn't get a chance to grab my mail. Thank you @nike - these are incredible. Beyond comfy. #vapormax

I've been home for exactly one day since March 9. Lots of blessings (and one big non-blessing), but I'm excited to be home for a while in April. My family, my projects, my inbox, and my mindfulness / spirit require it.

This train ride never gets old. LA > SD. ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž๐Ÿš‚

Taking a top secret tour of @iamplusofficial HQ - probably the most next level stuff I've ever seen... including @iamwill custom shoe collection.

Last night was fun - thank you all. Some of you I've known for 20 years. Some for 10. Some for 5. Some for 1. And some of you I just met. I think we are, at the end of the day, the sum of the people we surround ourselves with. And my score is pretty damn high.
.
This week started off as one of the worst in my life... and has ended with so much love, laughs, and liquor. Lol. I appreciate all of you. ๐ŸŽ‚

Out here in LA today celebrating life. Lots of denim. Lots of vibes. Stream that new @mick + @yomoxie right now at @complex. #996

Last year, Moxie Raia became my fave new singer. After we became friends, @yomoxie and I thought it would be cool to take her 931 project and put it through the random creative cycle that exists in my brain.
.
We ended up with 996. A love letter to my favorite year in music: 1996, but told through the lens of contemporary Hip-Hop and Soul.
.
Featuring Goldlink, Pusha T, Wyclef and more. Inspired by The Roots, De La Soul, The Fugees and others.
.
You will LOVE this. Shout to @complex for the world premier.

Excited to celebrate my birthday all week out west. Private events in Vegas for @mparticle and @adobe, some top secret madness in LA, and finishing off with my debut at @omniasandiego. Can't wait.

One day my son is gonna tell us he doesn't think we are cool, and he may be right, but for the time being, I think we are pretty cool parents. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟ

Missed this guy so much. Finally back to BK (although only briefly) so I can see my family. Never wanted to be a dad more than today, especially after the events of this past weekend. #mylesXB

We got it from here, Dad / Thank you for your service.
.
Been a rough week for us, a rough couple decades for you. But you're at peace now.
.
No one deserves to suffer like that. Although I'm glad it stopped, I would have loved one more call / visit / conversation.
.
It's poetic that you would always (jokingly?) ask when am I taking you to Vegas, and I had to take a red eye home from a Vegas gig to come to your bedside. Even crazier that I have to go back to Vegas for a gig on Tuesday, this time taking your spirit with me.
.
As your son, I learned a lot about what to do and, keeping it real, also what not to do as a father. I definitely inherited your work ethic. But I wish we had more real conversations. I wish we did more father / son things. I wish it was less cordial and more real.
.
But I know you did the best you could. I know you were really proud of me. And I turned out quite ok, so maybe I wouldn't change a thing. Plus, I'm so grateful that we had reconnected over the last 10 years.
.
I inherited some of my entrepreneurial drive from you. You had a business for years. But sadly, society didn't glamorize start-ups then. You weren't a "founder." There wasn't a Fast Company or Shark Tank. And your business failed.
.
But there was no glory in "failing fast." This wasn't with all my friends in Silicon Valley. This was the 80's in Youngstown, Ohio. You didn't have a tech unicorn. You installed carpet and tile. And you boldly sacrificed your body to do it.
.
I never told you this, and I always meant to: I hope I can somehow inherit your strength. All of those surgeries. And procedures. And ambulance rides. And needles. For decades. And you were so great. And brave. Meanwhile, I'm scared to go to the dentist.
.
Lastly, I'm glad that you got to spend time with Myles. I know how much he meant to you. Not sure if you even knew about this, but he loves the Elmo that Mom sent him. It's his favorite toy. He calls him "Melmo."
.
I'll make sure he remembers you. And I'll make sure I do a damn good job raising him.
.
Signing off now, as this is too hard to write. But we love you. We will keep making you proud.

Not a good day today. At all. Found this pic of happier times in my hometown. #2015
