i’m bringing the juice


there’s this imaginary table people always talk about, and they like to imagine what they bring to it. so i sat down at this table alone, and looked at what i brought: juice.

what i bring to the table is a know how. i know how to do it all. ask about me. i’ve published two books through my publishing company, i have a stage play going up at an equity theater in Hollywood. i have a film about to be shot this coming week – and my life is admired by many.

the greatest part about all of that is that i’m not selfish. i help ANYONE who has goals they want to achieve – and become great. i always say it: i don’t want the luxury car if my people can’t have one, too.

———-

my successes seem bigger to my friends and those that read about it than it does to me.
in the midst of building my empire i find myself losing friends.
the upside of that is that i’m also making more friends.
it’s like draining the tub while the water’s running, i guess.

i don’t mind it. i have no room for the lazy – or the jealous.

last night i found myself at an HBCU mixer at the beach. it was cool.
why the hell was Tuskeegee so deep? god knows.

a few howard and hampton folks scattered and the annoying as fxck morehouse/spelman folks…

and me alone representing one of the only hbcu’s actually founded by an african american pioneer to help better the people – not to house the bourgeois.

but i definitely had a great time with the folks.
