They tell me the album Ant and I made called "Us" came out 8 years ago today and I'm flooded with memories. Ant recording a gospel choir in their church, jumping around backstage in Boston when we got the intro from Chuck D and writing songs in the cold Minnesota winter of 2009. I wanted to stretch the autobiographical writing of "The Undisputed Truth", to include the stories of people who've shaped me. It didn't take long to figure out it's corny to talk about them in 3rd person. I needed to write, in first person, about my own loving and witnessing them. Babygirl is the hardest song I've written. Each of the women who held and molded me lived through sexual violence. Hurting and healing alongside them has broken and built my heart. I sought and was granted permission from one beloved companion in particular to write and perform the song. I've received recognition and praise for my work, but nothing compares to the honor of people around the world singing along, crying along and healing along with Babygirl. I asked recently if I should continue performing the song, or give it a rest. She reminded me that one of the crimes of sexual violence is that it's easier for people to deny and disbelieve, than face the truth. "People singing along with that song every night lets me know that they believe, not only me, but the people who hear themselves in the story."

A few days ago the world lost the great humorist and humanitarian, Dick Gregory. This man lived an entire lifetime before 40. He was the first black comedian to sit on the couch on late night TV, fathered 10 children with his wife, Lillian, wrote a best selling book, set records in track & field, helped to pioneer the vegetarian and raw food movement and financed & organized much of the Black liberation movement. I pulled out my Dick Gregory records to have a memorial session and found this clip. At 39, Mr. Gregory officially retired from show business to dedicate himself entirely to the service of his family, community and humanity as a whole. Luckily enough for his fans and the comedy community, Bro. Dick still performed after that point, but it seemed to serve as a statement to himself and the world that his intention and priorities ity from that day forward wouldn't be the raise to stardom or the acquisition of fortune. He made an intentional shift to service and sacrifice. Several in his circle of successful friends and colleagues made similar decisions. Muhammad Ali, Nina Simone and Harry Belefonte come to mind. Each of them legendary for not only their art, but their commitment to service. Praying I'm given the ability and state to not just pay them lip service, but actually act upon their mighty example.

Just want to say that the rumors are true. I in fact did rock Summerset Festival with @dj_keezy on the mix, a 24 foot LED banner with my name on it, a train conductor Kangol bucket hat, Gucci shades and a fly ass hanky hanging out my back pocket. All of these things are true.

Backstage at Summerfest with my brother Blueprint. I met Print when he opened for the first ever 'Brother Ali' show in spring of 2000, the Rites of Passage release party. We went on to do our first national tour together a couple years later on Atmosphere's God Loves Ugly Tour . Lot of laughing and living with this guy right here. He was Eyedea's favorite MC on Rhymesayers and his favorite battle companion. Can't wait to hear what he's cooking up with RJD2.

Now that you've had some time to listen to me & Ant's New Album "All The Beauty In This Whole Life", what are the lines that stand out to you? Are there certain songs that you come back to more than others? Thanks @rapisouttacontrol for the post.
