I've supported people without them even knowing I supported them, over and over again, as a matter of fact, every time I play an entertainers record in front of my big crowds, I'm supporting him or her, because I don't have to play your music, especially the ones that know I helped them in many other ways, and they never returned the gesture, not that I give to get, but when some of those people I've helped got on, they forgot, they act like it never happened, then later when they fell off, they started remembering, all of a sudden they humble now, thats why I don't shit on people, that's why I stay in my lane and don't ask anybody for anything, there was one person (a mogul) I helped a lot, somebody you all know very well, I never asked this dude for anything, and the one time I did, he told me no, and he was in a very good position to do it, what I asked him to do, others asked after me and he did it, with people he didn't even know, people he didn't have no history with, people that never did anything for him, I stopped what was doing to help this dude, but he looked out for everybody else and shitted on the Kid, when I really needed him, so from that point on, I vowed to never ask anybody to support me, I've got it on my own, nobody can say they gave me shit, I worked all my life to be where I'm at, and please don't get me wrong, it's not the industry that's bullshit, it's a beautiful thing, but it's some of the people in the industry that makes it corny and backstabbing, success and money makes people who they really are, that's why I STAY real, THE SAME, ALL THE TIME, and I suggest whoever is reading this, do the same,,,NEVER BEG ANYBODY TO SUPPORT YOU, just go get it yourself,,,,fuck em!
Sitting here reminiscing - "Used To Clean My Reebok Pumps With A ToothBrush, And Cop a Single On A Cassette For Just Two Bucks, Got My Turntables Right Before The Whole Wu Struck, Used To Cut Class Cut Home To Learn My New Cuts, Didn't Have A Fade Something More Like A Crewcut, Nobody Had Haze Even Dirt Would Cost Me Too Much, Wasn't Getting Paid So I Stayed With My Boots Scuffed, But Never Got Played Cuz My Tape Had All The New Stuff, Cassette I'd Cue Up, Had No Mac To Boot Up, A Gemini Sampler So All The Beats I'd Loop Up, Nobody Knew What, They Thought He'd Be A Screw Up, Left The Place I Grew Up Then Came Back With My Loot Up, Went Thru The Hood Like A Mechanic Giving Tune Ups, My School Up In The Woods Had Me Pumping Kegs in Blue Cups, Tried To Get Ahead But I Found Myself In Two Cuffs, The Cop Said 'You Got Balls But You Be Acting Too Nuts', Wildcat In The Back Of A Black Schoolbus , Bumping Black Moon My Whole Class Thought That I Knew Buck, Just A New Buck In New Rock Trying To Get New Bread, Spent My Last Dollar On A Rock n Soul Bootleg, Trying To Get My Hands On Kid Capri Needles, My First 12's Had Me Chase The Root Of All Evil....." #40BarFlashback#fbf

Super proud of my lil man getting chosen to read his poem titled 'Dreams' : "Dreams are life itself. Dreams are God telling you what your purpose is or how to achieve it. Dreams are what you have to achieve and if you don't, you won't have a purpose in life. You can't be afraid of achieving your dreams because dreams are what you make of them no matter what. You are your dreams because you're in every single one. Dreams are dreams no matter what."
Children are supposed to outlive their parents but for some that day comes too early - thinking of all my friends who don't have their mother today - hopefully could use this time to celebrate their life and the life they gave u - loss brings character and strength and some of you are the strongest people I know!
