Born in Seattle.

Grew up on the Eastside.

Family let the heat fly

but always taught me, “Be wise.”

Mama played that R&B

& she had the Pac too!

Pops would call collect

& spit that heater when he got to.

I used write out Nas raps.

I used to perform Blackstreet.

I graduated college for my mama 

cuz she asked me.

I focused on my writing.

Zeroed in on my flow and cadence.

Developed myself

& now I’m here to give you cogitations.
