— hey kids, i'm sharing this to show you what can happen when you sign a record and publishing deal. it's 5 years since my records came out and i have NO IDEA how much they've sold, how many copies sold, or how much money's been made back from my song in TV shows. after 2 years of begging for answers and publicly shaming them for professional responses, they're denying multiple blatant tv and Netflix placements. . @pulserecording @beggarsmusic @terriblerecords @xlrecordings this is what happens when wealthy people and their blue-collar office staffs choose a career in paying their bills off of other people's art. not sure this kind of stress and disrespect was worth the advance, especially from straight white people on a payroll plugging my gay black art ... make sure your team 100% supports you, or else they will 100% scorch you. be wary ! 🔍

— new york city, welcome to gay hell 🥵🌈 i'm doing 2 dj sets and a talk for world pride: 6.21 - this friday @the_spectrum_bk issa 2-hour techno set at 6:30am at market hotel. 6.28 - next friday @papijuicebk it's 1hr of world club music. *pre-sales are sold out* 6.29 - next saturday @offlineprojects' interlude+ series, kodie shane and i will be in conversation discussing our experiences as qpoc rappers in the music industry. and lastly, no need to zoom in… i facetuned my peepee out ✨
when i was 6, my mom told me that being black i'd have to work twice as hard as the next guy for half the payoff. by the time i was 10, i learned that it would have to be 4 times the effort being dark-skinned and african. at 13, the weight doubled again when i came out as not straight. this past week, i watched a sold out crowd throw all their hands in the air for the LGBT anthem of a hetero musician. this happened at the same festival that had me open for a much smaller punk act by 2 white men and didn't give me a dressing room. i gave that show my all so much so my back still hurts after a 1 hour massage. the reward: i've still been soaking in lovely energy from people who never heard of me. it's been a humbling reminder to not spend so much time complaining about it, smoking about it, crying about it and to channel all those sour grapes into wine, doing 16x the work. happy juneteenth even though i don't believe in celebrating Texas slaveowners being 2 years late to the party. and happy father's day to my mom for making me like this. . 📸 @eclectic.nomad

— In Sudan, a pro-democracy majority was protesting, and now is martyring against a violent military regime. Hundreds have died in the past week, 2 dozen of them children. Women are being systematically raped. This government militia has been funded and backed by the UAE and the European Union who had donated to the corrupt border control to 'aid with the refugee crisis'... Social media tends to go silent when tragedy strikes outside of the western world and its adjecent vacation destinations. Let's support the Sudanese people in their fight for the international freedoms that western nations spend billions of dollars imposing on non-black and often oil-rich countries. Let us show support the way we did for a fire with a zero death toll in an empty cathedral in a colonizer country... 🇸🇩✊🏿💜
