The first time I met @RickRubin in the early 80s, he came downstairs from his NYU dorm at 5 University Place and said, “What’s up, I’m Rick.” I said, “You’re Rick?” He replied “Yep.” I said, “I thought you were black.” He said “Cool.” We then went upstairs and started recording. The rest is history!!! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 I’m honored to be a part of Rick’s stories, which you can hear about in his four-part docuseries #SHOShangriLa, premiering tonight 9/8c on #Showtime!!! 💯💯💯
Couple kids from Queens!!! #TBT to me hanging out with Paul Simon in my Grandmother’s basement in ‘87!!!! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 Later that day, I took Paul up to the high school to talk to the kids. I wasn’t sure my friends would know who he was, but turns out he was more famous and popular than me 💯💯💯 That moment taught me to always pay attention, never underestimate people and stay humble!!!
