R.E.S.P.E.C.T – Thank You Aretha

Let’s keep it strictly Business

What’s good my people? Yes it’s been a long time coming but I am back behind the keyboards on this fresh new site! Finally my website reflects my status as the coolest guy in EA! Just kidding (not kidding) Anyhow, I’ve missed writing and...

Incarcerated Souls Have No Peace

This afternoon, I’m chilling at my desk with my headphones listening to an old mix I did 3 years ago. It’s amazing when you go back to an old mix and you hear the songs you were playing back then. Music truly is a language....

Are You In Your Moment?

“I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google — now who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more or do you want...

When You’re Tired Of Being Strong

How many times have you been told to be strong? For me, it’s something I have been told for as long as I can remember. “You’re a man – you gotta be strong, understand that” – that was drummed into my head as a kid, you...

When The Chickens Come Home To Roost

My childhood was amazing. I was born in London, I had a brother, a sister and my grandmother. That was it. That’s all I had and it was more than enough. Yeah, I lost my mother when I was 4 years old, but it was...

I Hope That You’re Okay

“I hope that you’re okay …” I’m chilling on my balcony, watching Upper Hill wind down for the night. What I love about my hood is its dual personality, by day it’s a bustling business centre, where captains of industry duel across boardroom tables, striking deals,...

She Makes It Easier to Talk To God

Yes, I’ve been missing. Yes, I stopped blogging, Yes, I am guilty of not having a commitment to the commitment I made of writing daily. I used to write a lot but let me not bore you with tales of what I used to do....

And All He Asks Of Us, Is We Give Each Other Love

February 14 …6:54am … Downtown … Atlanta GA. As usual, I’m up early, not because it’s Valentine’s Day, moreso because Arsenal are playing Leicester in a top of the table clash in the EPL (I know, that sounds surreal in itself). Last night I attended my...
