Family October 2014

in Coming Attractions by

Detroit is Different is such a success. Due to all your support it’s moved forward progressively. I’ve received calls, emails, and comments of appreciation. It’s been so much fun sharing my perspective of Detroit. This is a love I’m eager to develop.

This month’s theme is ‘Family.’ Also it’s my mother’s birthday month. She’s the ultimate Detroiter to me. Born and raised here, Central HS graduate, and committed Detroit advocate.

As a hip-hop artist most of my music is based around my family. I attribute most of my character, decision making, and thought process to my family. My love for hip-hop is directly connected to my cousin Lumumba Reynolds (audio/ video director of Fellowship Chapel in Detroit MI) start as a hip-hop DJ. This month I share some of what I’ve learned from them all along the way from my family.
