January 3rd 1986, looking out for the fix I took my first steps. No clue of how physical life gets... around uptown's Calliope projects..... A lot of people seem to think that being 30years old means many things. The most popular, that we are getting older. Then I also hear ppl say that it means I am a more mature me. And that I am in the prime of my life. To me, turning 30 means that I have been given the opportunity to assess the damage I've done in my twenties, both the triumphs and the mistakes, and continue to grow and develop as a man. I have witnessed the coming and goings of many of my most loved ones, and I am more thankful now than ever before to have had these loved ones in my life thus far. I would like thank everyone for the birthday wishes to come. And I would like to remind you all that I may now be in the 30 club, but a wheelchair is far from the picture lol. Happy New Years and have a wonderful Saturday. 🙏🏿😘✌🏿️🎉
Sometimes, moving forward involves taking a step backwards... When I moved to New York to sign my first record deal, I promised my 17 year old self that I would return to school to finish my education. I am neither ashamed nor embarrassed to say that I've taken my first step towards that goal. Thanks to the support of friends and family, I'm ready to go back & finish what I'd started. First-hand, money making experience is great and, in most cases, is what we go through years of school for anyway, but I just HAD to go back for my GED so I could at least show myself & others that there is no shame nor regret to be had or felt when you are making a conscience effort to become a better you. A sneaky little paparazzi caught me studying in my room 😏. Thought I'd share ... Y'all have a great week !
To whom this may concern, On behalf of my fellow brothers and sisters of the world, we have tried and tried to believe in the system. We have often been promised change. Fairness. Equality. Justice. Yet we are time and time again victimized in cold blood, and for the world to see. Why so? When many of us have good hearts and intelligent minds. When many of our ancestors have paved the way for us through their sacrifice. When we are just as present to participate as ever before. Why still? We are losing faith in the powers that be. It seems that they don't really care about us. It seems, they don't know us well enough to know how to care, or what to care about. In return, we have stopped caring about ourselves, having a hard time believing this is for us. We are forced to break down the boundaries set for us, but never by us. There are so many examples of beauty, strength, success, and patriotism that now look like us. Why do you still not love us so? What makes you think you are better than us? How can we fix what has been broken for so long? Is it even worth fixing to you? Is it that Ignorance is always ready to admire itself? So we sing and we shout and we stare through this scope. Looking for an answer, a sign of hope. Who will provide this for us? Sincerely, My Generation #writingoutmythoughts
I am an individual inside of a larger body. Lloyd is not one single person, but a group. The interests of the group takes precedent over anything individualistic in nature. The group is not only greater than me, physically, but also of greater importance. Without the help and support of others I could have never amounted to anything. #Appreciation #thankful
#MyPersonalRevolution is to use my time spent in this life to bring joy and happiness to others, to become the best version of myself I can be, and to be an example to others who come from where I'm from. I wish to show you what it's like to be an imperfect perfection, finding the beauty in the things that are often overlooked by society. I.e, the slums, the youth, the minorities, the ones without the ideal family setting growing up, the ones who're incarcerated from their mistakes. #thisismyrevolution.. What's yours?

In Los Angeles, CA on January 16, 2016, 93.5 KDAY will be celebrating the life of one of the most incredible human beings to ever walk this Earth.. For almost a year now, I've declined to perform in LA, NYC, and ATL, wanting to have released some new material before stepping on stage in these cities again. But when they told me what it was for, celebrating the life of The late Dr. King, I chose to say yes. I am honored to be asked by the great KDAY 93.5 fm radio station to participate in their event on Jam 16, the first annual. And I look forward to seeing the looks on the faces of my west coast ppl when they hear the new takes on some of our more classic materials. #mlkweekend
Although I never met you, I will never forget you. And in case I did I bet you, would already know I think you're special. Foolish pride inside would say "be cool, dont sweat dude". Knowing that what I really want to ask if for your help dude. In the most musically driven way I felt you, through crazy guitar rifts that could melt you. What a beautiful hand God dealt you. To match the unique voice to belt through. .. This was an amazing time to be alive and have gone along for this ride. I wish I could make purple, without the blue I feel inside.. May your spirit Live 4ever now ride into the sky may you ride. Ole purple one. . #Prince

Thank you, God Bless, and see you soon! 🇦🇺
Sometimes, I don't even know what to say to people. In fact, it's not that I don't know what to say, it's that I don't where to start. I do know how to start though. As imply thank you could suffice. I'd get so many messages of love, gratitude, and encouragement from people on here and in my immediate circle everyday. Often I am overwhelmed by it and I have a hard time responding accordingly. I try not to sound generic, but I really do love and wish the best for everyone I meet here, and I want them to know how much it means to me that they have taken just a little time out of their day to write me. I want to say thank you to you for your enthusiasm and love, not just towards me, but towards music culture and each other as a whole. I hope this message reaches you all in kind, for if it weren't for your love I'm not sure what I'd do, or where I'd be. #GEDflow #Appreciation #finishwhatyoustart #youcandoit
HYPNOPHOBIA - the excessive fear of sleep. A result from anxiety inherited over the loss of time that could be spent accomplishing tasks instead of sleeping. Often times I am the last one up. My mind has a very hard time shutting down. Especially at night. I have been programmed for so long for efficiency that It's become a normalcy. I have to satisfy the urge to feel neurons and endorphins firing off inside of my brain at all times. For a while I thought I was alone in this plight, but now that I know of others who are the same, I embrace it. There's no time too late or too early to push your life, enjoy your life, or experience your life. Anyone else feels like this?
