We must remember and honor our heroes as well as our fallen brothers and sisters who have lost their lives as a result of injustice, ignorance and racism. Starting today #mlk day, I vow to wear all black everyday for 6 months to mourn them. I invite you to join me. Even if it’s only a day, only an hour, only a minute, join me in remembering and honoring our heroes, our fallen and ourselves.

R.I.P. Sean Price!
Motherfucker, this sucks big time! Couldn’t believe it when I heard, still don’t know what to say. Been meaning to do his name for a while now and I’ve been struggling to do it right. So I gave it a go again today after I heard the news, to show some respect for P! but today I was even more critical to it than usual, so I decided to leave it until I come up with something that will be good enough to go with a picture of this great MC!

Ah where was I, Oh yes
Sean Carter is nice but Sean Price is the best
Sean gone, no Chandon, Sean is a don, I don’t wear Sean John.

Rest in peace P!
