datwon Today is our 15th Wedding Anniversary! To travel through space and time with my wife has been an incredibly enriching and loving experience. She essentially taught me how to love. Taught me how to care beyond myself and to move as a unit. We have been married for 15 years but together for so many more. I adore her spirit and how she has held our family and the extended family intact for decades...how she has made our children's lives the best that they can be. Seeing a strong, creative, funny and caring example of mother and womanhood for them to aspire to be.
Way before my industry career she was there cheering me on and supporting however she could (some of those King Mag celebs chicks made it in cus of her! Haha). But when things are shakey she comes in with a steady hand and makes sure our foundation is never shook.
She's not a social media person at all...but I had to make sure my love for her is known outloud. I love you babe!

datwon @JamieHector (Marlo of #TheWire) addressing the fundraisers at his Annual @MovingMountainsInc Gala. Every Saturday at Brooklyn's Medger Evers College he and his staff educate and elevate over 100 inner city youth (ages 10 to 21) through the arts.
Tonight they are honoring David Simon, producer of The Wire and Treme. Social activist, Life Coach (and my personal spirit queen) Terrie M. Williams. Wall St. Exec, humanitarian and philanthropist, Thomas Kelly.
@JamieHector is a supremely talented actor, but his heart and commitment to helping the kids from his humble beginnings is his true talent.

Follow @MovingMountainsinc and help their movement. #TheRealness

datwon My man, the dope writer @originalBlackspot told me that he was hitting the Bookcon at Javits Center today. Wish I could have gone with him. But I have to write and research today. Would have been cool to learn more about the industry I'm looking at more.
I had the pleasure of writing the Foreword for @karrineandco new book Vindicated. My second go at doing one with her (The 1st How To Make Love To A Martian). Her newest book, which details her trails from the Confessions of A Video Vixen NYT bestseller times, drops June 2nd. Some preorders have already hit. Cop it and I wish her well with it.

I also wish luck and congrats to a few friends that have upcoming books on the way...I look to join that author group soon. #EyesOnThePrize #Vindicated #NewnessInProgress

datwon Such a dope photo. Lot of friendship here. @warmonkey has known me since a teenager, before the industry. Family ties. #BonzMalone had a huge impact on my career. Late night talks at Vibe's first office as an intern. Forever indebted. And the cool as hell @ababyblueeyes. Thanks for being the ultimate homie while here on your travels. You helped make a lot of epicness happen for so many artists. Best of luck and much success back home in Australia! #FarewellParty #HaventSeenThemInForever #GoodPeopleGreatTimes #MuchRespect!

datwon Just got this book sent on one of the illest to ever bounce a basketball, AI. This coming September will make 10 years since I went on one of the best trips of my life. Reebok (what up Kejuan!) sent AI and his team to Tokyo, Japan and Shanghai, China. I was the sole media on the tour. We did a week in total...and it was awesome. So many emotions and experiences that I came back with, like a new view on celebrity sport figures and what they go through.
Every year I say I'm going to finally write about it. Still have the notes and some video...somewhere. I learned a lot from that trip, still processing it. So if that was a week in his life, I can't imagine his everyday back then, or even now. I'm gonna have to just sit still and write... #AllenIverson #AI #TheCrossover #TheAnswer

Repost By @djspinna "REST IN PEACE Maya Angelou! Yes, I met her, some years ago, it was brief but impactful to say the very least! I made a tribute mix in honor of her life and legacy. It's also a dedication to all Ancestors, we all have them and they guide us all.
I've been meaning to do something like this for a minute, since the passing of my pops, uncle and brother last year. Check out the mix on Mixcloud. It's all vinyl and some heavy Afro-centric, deep spiritual conscious jazz business. Sometimes we need a break from the madness of life. If Maya were alive, I'm sure she would dig something like this.

datwon Pick up @dizzyhippy new album The Growing Process today. Even if its for just this song. So much realness in one track. Speaks on the game of music and how it is projected to the people...and the consequences behind it at times. Also has a dope track dedicated to his daughter.
Great work fam. #DizzyWright #GreatHipHop #ThinkMusic

datwon Have to shout out our biggest supporter @eli_groves (follow him for great music!) This young up and coming, rap/R&B hybrid star has been rocking with #TwntyTwo from the very beginning! Seeing this pic has me thinking about how far we have come as a brand. Straight from the hustle and muscle of @twntytwo_22 @president_dope @sahle_selassie & @whoischristianvazquez (what up #Sade!) The squad is deep and dope and we won't stop making quality goods. We love this.

Eli...thank you bro. You rep us so much and the love is appreciated. I know your hard work will make your dreams come true. #Salute #HeGotOnesIdontHave! #WowWeBeenWorkin! #TeamTwntyTwo #WeHere #ThatCouchIsLitWithHeat! #GetWithTheMovement
