Swoon! He’s an author, poet, musician and more. He had opinions and made powerful statements about politics, drug abuse, poverty, racism, and more…
He had his rough patches in life, but who hasn’t!!! When I imagine what kind of life I would have led in the 60′s; I imagine being the female counterpart to a genius revolutionary, which would have meant I had to stay home and change diapers while making occasional appearances next to my man. Thank goodness I live in 2011 and I get to be the revolutionary!!!

I will also say this; His daddy was Jamaican. BULLET!!!
