"It's been a decade since I've dedicated myself to being a legendary entity in the world- since I stood at that "Point of No Return" on that little slave port island off the coast of Senegal and realized my purpose and responsibility as an artist. It's been a decade since I committed myself to making the world doper with the freshest aesthetics. It's been a decade since I began formally honing my crafts so I can evolve the arts world the legends before me created. This art shit to me is like a world-defining conversation- I always wanted to be fluent in my tongue so I can add something worthwhile to the dialogue. Ten whole years since I started acting which gave me the sense of self and courage to start spittin'. There have been so many times I've wanted to quit or failed. My love for this won't let me stay down. My sense of duty to my purpose won't let me quit. Over that ten years I've seen highs I thought only made for stars and moons, lows Dante ain't even know existed, loves that made me, loves that broke me, stages further from home than I thought I'd ever go, brothers/sisters, demons, snakes, enemies, angels, ghosts.. You name it. And yet I know there's still so much to see. Here's to another 10 years.."
