    Life is good because I decided to go down the right path in life when I was pushed and labeled to go down the wrong path. From school teachers telling me I would never go to college, to my college professors pulling me out the classroom telling me that " I should just leave school because I don't give a damn about myself" all because I was a girl from a rough neighborhood. I made it through and a made it out with a label and a stigma attached to my back and stamped on my forehead. I consider myself apart of a "new statistic" one whom embraces when people mock or comment that I am from the ghetto or the hood because I can proudly hold my head up high and say " Yes, I am from there, with a Bachelor's Degree, A Masters Degree and working on my PhD". I am from "that street" or "that neighborhood" that you hear on the news and yet instead of looking down I volunteer my time and have worked with and in "that neighborhood" with "those people". Life is Good because I am the "new statistic" that you will soon hear about and read about, because good things can come from "bad" places!

    Life is good because I have the PRIVILEGE to listen to hip hop everyday. I cannot imagine a world where I did not have the freedom to listen to music constantly. I start my day with One Time 4 your mind to make sure I'm on my game, I continue the day shook ones (pt.2), keep my flow going with some Rosa Parks, and snap back to the present with World Domination. Life is Good because I can listen hip-hop as much as I want. Music is my passion and I see it as a gift.

    Life is good because God has blessed me with 2 beautiful kids and I have another child due November 3, 2013. Having kids has changed my life like I could have never imagined. I live for my kids and love being a dad. Family is my priority and will always be. The foundation began with my wife and having a family of my own is why LIFE IS GOOD! My dad left me when I was about 5 and that had a huge impact on my life. My mom raised me and my sister on her own and did the best she could. Now as a father I understand how important it is for me to be around not only physically but mentally as well for my family. I love the phrase "Presence Over Presents". My father had his reasons for leaving and I learned the hard way that being raised with no dad is difficult for a kid. Each day I wake up I thank God for allowing me to live another day and to be blessed with my family. LIFE IS GOOD.

    My life is good literally because of hip hop. I feel the evolution of music has gone so far and in the right direction and that's why I do it. I was listening to songs like Nas's "Hero" today and that made me wanna be a better person and a hero to myself and others I love that track. Nas like 2pac is against oppression and its the messages we get to spread as artists that makes us better people helping out one another through music. We truely do it for the fans we would give them our trophies if we could. Nas and 2pac's music are the two most inspirational artists other than locals I kno that get my brain going and want to create better music. Thats why life is good. I just helped out two artists that dont have too much music recording experience record at my house and giving them inspiration and motivation brought me back to when I first started and made me think how much of a journey its been. Music not only goes a long ways but stays alive forever one love to nas and Hip Hop let's help spread a good message for these kids out there and try to make them better people :)

    You make it good by being good. Being good can be broken into many philosophical arguments, but we're looking at perspective level. From my eyes the things I believe I've done are not just good for myself but good for others. The "others" are what make my life. Friends, family, colleagues. The good that they bring back to me completes my life. They effort they share and bless me with is my life they think I'm worth for, and in so they think my life is good in their eyes. Therefore, Life is good because I am good to life.
