Member of the Legendary Watts Prophets Passes, Yet Lives On

Richard Dedeaux
(Richard Dedeaux is the one sitting)

So dope to see how the LA Times honored the memory of my wife's grandfather, Richard Dedeaux, who recently passed. It shows that he made a difference. He was a member of the legendary Watts Prophets and even battled Muhammad Ali in a poetry contest and won! The Watts Prophets came together during the 1960's in order to combat and speak out against tragedies caused by racism happening in the Los Angeles area. Much of our modern day style of hip hop music is due to brave trailblazers such as he. 
You can see the amazing article that the LA Times wrote about him here. Please share!

Someone Who Deserves To Be Recognized

Today is the birthday of someone very special to me and I wanted to immortalize this fact by dedicating a special blog post to her. And it is fitting because the whole theme of this blog is the intersection of Creativity, Passion, and Greatness and I think this lady embodies all of these attributes. I for one know that I would not have accomplished major milestones in my life such as getting into college, obtaining my first real job, and even the successful execution of the biggest album release concert of my music career without her help. I am so excited to see her in a space now where she is pursuing her passion because she has helped so many realize theirs. Her story is one that is sill unfolding, but the best is yet to come. The woman that I am speaking of is my awesome big sister, LaNicia Williams. Happy birthday girl, lil bro loves you very much. Be sure to follow her on Twitter. She has founded a powerful ministry called "Changed Living" that is all about helping people do a 180 in their life in order to be who God intended for them to be.

I'm Easy

Be Authentically You

Be a trendsetter, be a leader, know your worth, respect and honor the worth of others, be confident in your strengths, honest about your weaknesses, be secure in the fact that there is no one else quite like you in this world and that is dope! Don't give up your values, but be willing to adapt to the changing times, go the route specifically marked out for you and not the one others think you should take. Listen to God, listen to your heart, and BE AUTHENTICALLY YOU... #GreatnessAwaits
