Another trip around the sun.🎉
I always reflect a lot around my birthday. So here are some things I’ve learned throughout my life, either about myself or just life in general.
Time goes by faster and faster year after year.
Spending time with friends/ family and the people I love is crucial to my happiness and well being.
Adding new good music to your playlist (doesn’t necessarily mean newly released, but new to you) can make you feel re-inspired and revitalized.
Surrounding yourself ONLY with people who GENUINELY support you, encourage you and elevate your game will get you so far in life. You’ll be amazed at what you accomplish.
Sometimes when I feel like being alone and not talking to anyone I actually need the opposite— to be surrounded by people/friends/family.
If you’re considering saying something nice to someone, always do it. It can make someone’s day and it makes both of you feel good.
It’s always better to speak up instead of staying quiet and wishing you did later.
Getting out of your comfort zone and being challenged (in your career or just life in general) makes you a stronger person. It builds confidence and self esteem.
People who have treated you badly or hurt you in your life did so because they are hurting themselves, whether it be from previous experiences or traumas they haven’t healed from. Truly understanding that, having sympathy for them, and forgiving them will set you free and heal you.
If you make a mistake, acknowledge it, learn from it and keep it moving. Don’t beat yourself up. Chances are no one cares as much as you, and being hard on yourself doesn’t make the mistake go away.
You aren’t supposed to DO anything, and you’re not supposed to BE anything. You are more than enough, just the way you are.
And all life experiences— both good and bad— are opportunities to learn and grow into the person you want to become.
I’m really grateful for this platform, this community, and every single one of you who follow me and interact with me. I consider you all my friends. Thank you for all the birthday wishes! 🙏🏼

Happy birthday to me and GZA the Genius! 👐🏼🎉I know, I know. I post this every year. But it’s a special memory for me. This picture was taken after I watched him perform Liquid Swords. In the middle of the show, I got pulled up on stage and beatboxed for him. (Swipe right for the video).😂
Here's how it happened: He shouted me out in the crowd for wearing a Wu-Tang shirt and for knowing all the lyrics. He said “We got a true Wu fan here!” And then I yelled, "let me beatbox for you!!" He handed down the mic to me, and I started beatboxing. Then he stopped me and said......"Wait, hold up, that sounds better than my sh**!!" And then he pulled me up on stage.
For the longest time I didn’t think there was any video evidence from this. I thought it would only be a memory that I could tell people about. But over a year later, I found the video on YouTube from someone who was in the crowd. So I reached out to him, and he sent me the video. Definitely one of the craziest things that’s ever happened to me haha 😂 GZA is my fav Wu member, and we share the same birthday. Happy birthday GZA 👐🏼@therealgza #GZA#WuTang
