Bosses wear horses, but Dons are unbearable.
Being that my last blog was a selfish bit of introspective reality, it’s only natural that this blog is dedicated to you, the people, whom I love and adore. I put that on everything. I’m always flattered at the mere thought that I have a solid base of good folk who read my blogs faithfully. I have always dreamed of the world knowing my name, and I’ve always had the confidence in my ability and the faith in my God to know that one day it will, but to know that people actually check for a nigga is very humbling. I do this for all y’all: Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, whomever. I do this for straight, gay, bisexual, trisexual, whomever. I do this for Christians, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, whomever. Some fat, some skinny, Freda to Winnie, Emma to Cindy, Constance to Wendy (big ups to Kamaal Fareed, aka Q-Tip the Abstract Poetic, my first influence). I do this for my culture. I do this for those who don’t have a voice. Most people get this shit twisted. They think it’s about having 1,000,000+ social media followers, this great big flock of mindless sheep who dickride any and everything a famous MF says. But in actuality, it only takes a spark to get a fire going. You selfish niggas out there (none of my folk) are so caught up in taking the glory for yourselves that you completely ignore the bigger picture. It’s not about me starting the revolution. It’s about me or you or him or her imparting the wisdom in the child who may one day give birth to the one(s) who will spark the revolution. My ex fiancée Octavia Gallishaw taught me one important thing: it’s not always all about me. Sister Liz Dennis taught me to pay it forward. My Nubian culture taught me that each one should teach one. So, as much as I’d like to be the one to make the world revolve in the opposite direction, I’m more inclined to impart all I can into the next generation(s). But, having said all that, thank you all for your support, forever plus a day; as long as you keep reading, I’ll keep writing.
Fresh off the Negro news feed:
There was reportedly a colored man in the Fourth Ward of Englewood yesterday (Sunday) trying to push a bag of regular weed (Kat Williams voice) to passersby. Reggie Bush. Reggie Miller. Harraka. Garbage. This may have been worse than finding anthrax in the nation’s capital. I secretly wished that he be put away on hate crime legislation.
Under Armour has reportedly offered Kevin Durant $325 million over the next ten years to become the face of their brand and leave Team Nike, who has reportedly been unwilling to offer more than $17 million annually. Look…I’ve been Team Nike since the year 1982, and haven’t worn a pair of sneakers outside Nike/Jordan brand since the very first Reebok Allen Iverson kix in 1996 (2up2down), but for $325 million, I myself would insist on a clause in my own contract implicitly stipulating that in addition to wearing UA, I’d no longer be free to even speak the word Nike. Sheeit…
I saw a pig on Palisade Avenue, Englewood, NJ, USA this morning in uniform get into a grey 4 door Acura after leaving the newest overly hyped eatery in the Wood, Manhattan Bagel. That’s not fair y’all. But shit, last time I was home uptown in the X I saw two DTs in a grey 2 door Geo Metro. Them niggas threw the lights on as they turned off of East Tremont onto Webster and I almost pee peed on myself. That ain’t fair. Fuck Boyz.
