Hello Brooklyn,

Tonight we make history… Those of us from the most thorough borough who have endured so many years of being counted out knew the one thing to count on is we would stay on that “Brooklyn sh*t.” As we come out tonight to welcome one of our own home at the Barclay Center, let’s S-T-A-N-D U-P and remember all those who did not make here.

Pour out libations to lost, but not forgotten generations.

Bay Ridge, Brownsville, Bed Stuy, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn Heights, Bushwick, Canarsie, Carroll Gardens, Clinton Hill, Cobble Hill, Coney Island, Crown Heights, DUMBO, Dyker Heights, East New York, Flatbush, Fort Greene, Fort Hamilton, Gravesend, Kensington, Marine Park, Midwood, Mill Basin, New Utrecht, Ocean Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Red Hook, Sheepshead Bay, Sunset Park, Weeksville and Williamsburg…

S-T-A-N-D U-P!!!


On that Brooklyn sh*t since 1968

REACH > INSPIRE > TEACH > EQUIP > EMPOWER – these are the cornerstone objectives of my GYMRx (Getting Your Mind Right) ladder of personal growth for collective development.

1) It is important to REACH out beyond your comfort zone to those most in need. 2) It is necessary to INSPIRE others by walking with purpose when sharing your truth. 3) It is essential to TEACH by example to demonstrate what is to be learned by practice. 4) It is vital to EQUIP those responsible for doing the work with the right tools for their tasks. 5) It is liberating to EMPOWER thinkers to become pursuers and doers.
