"Tryna find a mic that'd reach the whites & those across the globe, so when I speak they listen for my soul — and hope the collected conscience consents to end conflict."
"What ya gonna do when your life acts on you? Might as well feel good, share gratitude — actually call your mother, enjoy a convo or two while conversation's offered to you..."
"...I want you to see & not be afraid, & find that your brain can be trained to resist the strain when it's love on your heart with a spark that lights the dark."
"Blaow! How you eat things like cow, like his soul don't matter to you now — or never has it?"
"The only reason I am destined for greatness? 'Cause I finally figured out waze to make it - my destination."
"Woke up to vivid dreams & laughter, when I was younger I wanted to be a pastor, who would've ever thought this guy would be a rapper, Florida State Seminole & fine art trapper..."
"I've been groomed by the sculpting of my attitude & I put my hands together thankful for my gratitude."
"Coincidences coincide with your destiny, learn the first insight, & you'll start noticing..."
"Falling in love is letting your heart take the lead; I've been living by society's despise for the team — Black in spite the repercussions of the dream, I'ma Dream... right into the void where ego's never seen."
"But to change several frames of mind, we gotta push paint brushes into colorful primes — the creation of black, the matter of fact is that the fear that they perceive is not reality."
"Be mad at me if that helps you cope. Animal whisperer, I'm speaking so that they have hope. Be mad at me for the truth I spoke, just know that this the realest shit I've ever wrote."
"That's some bull if you ever smelt it... Animals are dying, only vegans felt it. We are the world how are we still selfish...? Conversations need to be had, but ya'll just talkin bout some Bull Shxt."
