My dude Bird..
This one of the coolest people I ever met.
Story of how we met is crazy. So I stay in Akron, Ohio, born and raised and I started a community center to teach our (African) history and culture to the youth and surrounding communities. We had an event featuring Umar Bin Yassin of the The Last Poets. At this time Bird was jumping freight trains and was making his way to Cleveland but accidentally got off in Akron. One of my partners saw him walking down the street and invited him to the event. Long story short after Umar finished spitting his poetry we opened up the floor for other artists and Bird spit some of the hottest shit ever. After he finished we politicted about music and I offered him over to my studio. For two nights and two days he stayed over and we created music and talked some deep celestial shit with friends. That was a dope time in my life.
jamila-martin this some crazy right. Didn’t expect to see him on here.
Oh ya we had a great time with him! We havent heard from him since, but he has the kindest spirit and truly will remain in our hearts. I would love to connect with him again!
