Love x Pride

p.s I wasnt listening to Drake's "Scorpion Side B" when I wrote this. Strictly written for the youth dem. Bless up! This is for my younger 21-25 crowd. Fellas, pull up a seat, I think I qualify as an OG now lol. A few years ago I was in your shoes, with the perceived world ...

The magic month of May

May always holds sentimental value to me as this is my birth month. As I got older I started to resent the earlier half of the month as I had to shell out cash for a mothers day gift. Repugnant, I know, but I have long changed my view on the day designated to my ...
