Back into crossroads — two completely different directions but only one path… I decided to move back into international speaking mode in USA starting Feb as a keynote speaker.. Flying into LA after a music festival in Colombia. And making arrangements as an abstract artist with ehibitions. Many, many, many opportunitires – but only one me. Crossroads. Doesnt matter how many people are trying to get a piece of me– my dad tells me “you are going to do what you want anyway.” – That’s my family.. supporting every decision, even if they are crazyyyyy.
I filtered this painting in “Black and White” because of the people around me. I live an international lifestyle but not everyone is cultured like me. they dont see in color… Sometimes I just look at em.. like – you dont even deserve these eyes – you cant feel the same way and act about it. This lifestyle is not for everyone – so stop and get some culture please. It’s one way or the other.. their way or no way. Well – take a quick step back because not everything can be seen in black / white. #discrimination is a real thing and very much in MY backyard every mo fo day. I’m thousands of miles away from everything but that sh*t is eating me alive… from one end of the world to the other – From Detroit to Barcelona to Medellin — I cant win em all.. and I wont try to people please anyone. Only chasing my dreams and not worrying for all the drama, all the bullshit – I left my backyard for good reasons — but the main reason – > was to get OUT. Get out of what I was doing, get help from the abuses, doing dumb shit, not taking anything seriously, find reasons to be alive and create something that I can call “mine” – #selfmade and don’t you forget it. And I refuse to let past repeat itself and history abuse me. History will repeat itself if you let it.. and i keep my eyes focused on doing me… doing me because I cannot look back 6 years and think again.. what the f am I doing here? #detroitmade — I need to get a flight back home soon… just sitting on the block in Lafayette reminds me of everything that I came from – I see an open lane, and move right in. Make no mistake – Im aware of everything.

Let me tell you about the blood, sweat, tears, and fears.. with my back against the wall. Years of Planning, Months of filming; My whole life was set up for this very moment and we finally reached the point… Where it’s now or not at all. There were too many points of confirmation today; After […]
