The great poet Rumi didn’t write his work on paper. He reached ecstatic states in his love for and witnessing of The Divine and began to overflow with verse. We only have Rumi’s incredible work because his beloved friend and scribe, Husama Ad-Deen Chelebi committed the verses to paper. There are those who believe that Rumi only reached certain levels and states in the presence of Husam Ad-Deen, so not only was he the documentarian but the facilitator of Rumi’s ocean of poetry. I’d never compare myself to the likes of Mevlana Rumi, but this blessed man (Anthony Davis) is my Husama Ad-Deen. Not only has he helped me document my journey with the beats he creates, but his heart is big enough to hold mine. He makes me feel safe enough to not only express, but explore myself. Who’s more valuable than the friend that gives you, YOU?

Looking back on my conversation with @etown_radio in Colorado last year. So grateful for the chance to speak freely. Check out the whole interview here https://youtu.be/3Du4OoPLUwY LAST WORD and I also performed several songs from All The Beauty and some classics as well.

Put together this clip of my hero/mentor/big brother/friend, Chuck D speaking in New York a few years ago. It’s impossible to understand anything about Hop Hop outside of this context. As his studen, I transcribed the message below. God preserve our teachers and make us worthy inheritors of them. We are a creative people from ground zero, second 1. MCing is just vocalization. There’s a correlation between Billie Holiday singing “Strange Fruit” and Nas spittin’. Why is (Black focalization) more powerful here in the United States of America? We weren’t allowed to express ourselves. Could you imagine? (Slave masters said) “Oh we took your family and we sent them to Hattiesburg (MS)” And your in Jamestown (VA). Our expression meant everything. We couldn’t tell the slave master “go to Hell” so we had to play them notes. We had to get it out. This is where the power of the music comes from. We were silenced so it had to come out another way. This is why this music means everything to people. “I’ve got to have my music. It’s a part of my blood. I can’t tell you why, all I know is that beat is right, they singing right and I NEED IT!”

Inspired to post this when I saw my brother, @murs316 post his. The average person may see that a million fans in 61 countries spent a million hours listening to my music (on the Spotify app alone) and assume that I must be wealthy. In the industry, my team still needs to fight to get me on festivals and included in the press that covers hip hop. -as if we had little to no value at all. My teachers are adamant that numbers are utterly insufficient in appraising the true impact of what we do. I measure my success by what I see in your eyes and feel in your presence. Whether these numbers look big or small to you, I’m grateful that people open their hearts and spend their time with what comes out of mine. Shoutout the good people @spotify for being good to us.

Hip Hop lost one of our true legends a few days ago. @reggieosse was not only an incredible journalist and documentarian, he was also a friend to my wife and me. As I sat trying to collect my thoughts and feelings to write a post about Reg, I realized that I actually took the opportunity to tell him what he meant to me on his podcast, The #combatjackshow a couple months back. This was before we knew Reg had cancer and I’m so grateful we caught this conversation on wax. Please go check out the podcast. Pay special attention to the @djdnice episode. Much love to. @smcampion for bringing Reggie to The Twin Cities for @giantstepsmn and to the whole Combat Jack Show family. 📸 @annamin612 @laurazabel @jewjeffner
