Had a great conversation last night with jimmy about #equal, a new series i’m narrating for @hbomax. also talked about @poseonfx, #pittsburgh middle school plays, #forwhatitsworth being up for #grammy contention, and much more. always a great time.
Today is #blackpoetryday. my life is my art, my soul is my art. it's been the only constant in my life for all of my life. whenever i feel anything complicated, anything complex, could be good or bad, i go to my art. it's a gift because it helps me process things that are troubling; it helps me to remember to breathe.

As most of my longtime fans know, i have a complicated relationship with the period in my life that i fondly refer to as my ‘millennium c**n show’ period. while it was hard feeling simultaneously blessed to have been given such an expansive opportunity, it came at a cost. the debt to which i can finally and blessedly say is paid in full! thank you all for coming on the wacky ride with me. i got a lot more rivers to cross and i have never felt more grounded, present and powerful! let’s go walk on water together and change the world for good! always remember to show up for your life. remember to dream the impossible!
please read this amazing ny times article where i discuss this in detail. the journey continues. ❤️
