Completely neglected my tumblr for the past 5 weeks or so. My apologies. I was east coasting and I’m honestly not really myself when I’m there. Not enough space or time to gather my thoughts and write anything of any substance.
Hanging out day and night with my mom and brother and watching their development as people. They both make me proud.
Catching up with my best homie. Been friends since I was 10 and we can go a year without speaking and when we see, it’s like we never missed a beat. Got to turn up with him in the club on my birthday. Sidebar: aesthetically speaking, DC will forever have the baddest women in the clubs). Also brought him with me to this yacht party this past Saturday. That was hella fun as well; DC and Virginia are beautiful at night from the water.
Reunited with a special someone I hadn’t seen in over two years. She deserved better than what I could give at the time—I was 24 and life had gotten a bit out of hand—but now I’m better with everything to give if she wants it.
Spent time in NYC working on the set of a film that’s due out next summer starring LeBron James. He was there, being professional and hanging with his mom and friends in between takes. I gained a newfound level of respect for him as a person and a professional. It’s still Team Kobe Bryant till the end tho!
Came up with hella rhymes. That aggression I had as a teenager and in my early twenties always returns when I’m on the east coast. Being so close to so many of the things that affected me always makes for good raps. I’ve forgotten about 85% of them now but trust me, they were good. Haha
It was crazy humid.
I slept like one hour.
My mom force-fed me with carbs and sugary snacks….
Never made it to church once.
All in all: it’s home, I did the things that a man is supposed to do—like sacrifice for your family, spent quality time with loved ones, and I’m back in my zone. Couldn’t complain if I wanted to.
I very naturally gravitate towards love and just as naturally detach from anything else.
If I’ve ever gotten close to you, it’s because I felt genuine love. If I’ve ever pulled back from you, it’s because I didn’t feel the love.
Won’t catch me where I’m not completely loved and appreciated. Hella people in this world. Someone somewhere gotta love me. I’ll find them.
Better yet, I’ve found them.
But my mind is on Pluto
So with the home of my body being the ghetto
But my mind on the moon
I will soon be the man that I am today
