2016 Recap

 
The illusion is everyone wants the truth, but the truth is everyone wants the illusion.

OPEN LETTER (1/1/2017)

The year of 2016 was filled with so many blessings...Getting the opportunity 2 work w/ Beyoncé and B featured on her latest #1 album Lemonade was a complete honor. My brother Kanye West dropped his 8th studio album last year also, The Life of Pablo, and as always it was an amazing experience 2 B a part of. I'm so thankful and excited to be nominated for 7 Grammys at this year's awards show! 

While I was working on these projects, the team did a great job of facilitating my sold out National Poetry Month Tour as well as our music video for “Trouble In The Water” featuring the family Common & Kumasi. Summer '16 was filled with nothing but more wins. Some of U were even able 2 catch up w/ me on tour with Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg as the lead spokesperson & campaign ambassador for the Respect My Vote! Campaign, presented by Hip Hop Caucus.

 

U already know we finished the 4th quarter and holiday season strong too. I signed a new artist named Mekke'l Carter and together we co-wrote Kenny Lattimore's newest single, "Real Love This Christmas" off his album A Kenny Lattimore Christmas, which made it to #5 on the Billboard charts for Top Gospel Albums. As we get ready to break into this new year ('17) I am proud to announce the release of my first ever art & poetry book titled, Infrared Poetry: Love Letters To A City. I’ve enlisted some of the young & freshest talents to collaborate with, and you can now pre-order your copy of the e-book on my website.

 

With your purchase of the book you will receive a complimentary ticket to my 3rd Annual Grammy Family After-Party in Los Angeles on 2/12/16 where you will be able to pick up your copy in person. For out-of-state purchases, books will be shipped out on the following day (expect 5-day shipping).  Thank you so much for your continued support.

 

Let's make this year one for the history books.
