Harry Belafonte gave up a platinum music career to help black people
He had the FIRST platinum record
Gave up being an entertainer to be an activist
Jay-z would NEVER do this
Without giving away too much I sacrificed financial security and local celebrity because my brothers and sisters NEEDED me.
I could’ve took shit a whole nother way, but I thought what type of message am I sending to people who believed in me. What message am I sending out about blacks and violence.
Not retaliating to ignorant niggas who are currently “winning” (by ignorant nigga standards) was the best thing that happened to me.
Cost me a nervous breakdown, therapy, almost filing for bankruptcy, and tons of relationships…I was broken down to a molecular level. But NOW I possess something they can never take from me. And I plan to share it with the world. Most importantly my black people.
It’s comin’, stay tuned…almost 2 years in the making.
