Yesterday I watched an 11yr old meet his idol RAKIM...you can't tell me Hip Hop aint beautiful! From the moment we started the event shorty stood up THE ENTIRE TIME despite having open seats next to him. This damn near brought a tear to my eye to see how this culture brings generations together. Thank you @rakimgodmc@jperiodbk@kevincoval@youngchicagoauthors for allowing us to have this life changing conversation and allowing me to host.
So blessed watching my mentees sit with RAKIM for a private Q&A session. To be able to have these life changing opportunities for them to meet someone so influential makes me beyond grateful. Thank you @kevincoval@jperiodbk@youngchicagoauthors for this truly unforgettable experience that my mentees won't ever forget.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Maiya and I had a wonderful birthday weekend. Got to spend quality time with my little princess, great day at church, and the show stopper was going to Louder than a Bomb with some good friends. Oh, and Rakim rapped for me. Let's start year 32. #ltab#ltab2018#GrownUp#GodHasBeenGoodToMe#CutestBabyYet
