Yeah, I know Gold
I done paved the road, Then I made the vehicle
Then I payed the toll, In the vehicle on a road that I paved it for
Just to say I ain't A fool And I know I ain't tho
Purposeful, Not focused on the surface.
I'm a portrait, imported. In a portal,
Important and I know I got you open

Played for Portland

Camcord it I only finger roll
Because it feels phenomenal
I never thought you knew
Until it was yah time to know
Until it is my time to go
I let em fall like dominos
Being gold, is about living towards this ideal. It is a Philosophy and Mantra, something I am always aspiring to. To be Gold, to say that I am Gold, is to say that I’m from the first people (from Africa); to say that we’ve been here, to see myself In love.
My art, mirror reflection paintings, with the nose in the pyramids that reflects on that self loving and affirming way to think. My music and poetry are also about that self loving affirmation.
Being Gold is about the lessons and losses in my existence. When I say “We Gold” it is a call to the spirit, knowing that there is more than the eyes can see. Being gold and knowing that we are gold is the understanding, that the internal work creates the outside achievement. That it is about the IN not the Out, that’s about who you are, not what you are doing.
