I'll never forget that birthday I was smiling from ear to ear telling everybody in the studio that my son is finally becoming a man. "I remember holding you for the first time that's when I knew that I had to do something other than work in somebody's factory so that one day you could look up to me". You go join hands with your grandma and kiss for me. I wanted to be there every day for you and there wasn't a day that went by I didn't wonder where you were. The 18-year had aspirations of becoming a musician like his father and Grammy-winning aunt, and was now working on a mixtape. He was even recently working on a mixed tape.
