I'm a politically savvy, socially conscious, apathetic spendthrift. Mix the class of Lena Horne with the hauntingly blind creativity of Van Gogh, Angela Davis' old school militancy and top it off with the blatant, unabashed honesty of she who bore me. Oh yeah, I'm a producer.
Every powerhouse noun needs an equally enigmatic adjective to accompany it. Ambition’s adjective is ‘brave.’
He’s ambitious & brave, and I’m proud. He’s following a calling because his talent just couldn’t be quiet, it wanted to be shared with the world. I know it’s not easy, because your talent is sometimes your burden and your savior… But he charges ahead with all the might and will of his African ancestors behind him because you see, they used their voices too.
Dreams aren’t easy to follow because they dissipate with the morning or an open eyelid… But he keeps his dream in his peripheral…
And I’ll keep him, by my side.
