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.
& now I’m here to give you cogitations.
