Affirmation of the Day: I break stereotypes by crossing traditionally lines

Quote: Mike, I don’t see you as Hip Hop.

The following statement was said to me on Sunday morning as I multi-tasked between playing catch up with folks I haven’t spoken to in a while and doing my household chores (got to keep my life, I mean wife happy).  The obvious question is, What does hip hop look like? and who defines it?

My response: Hip hop is so diverse and has such a large range.  I am hip hop.

Lesson for my readers, “You can be two things at the same time.”  I can be an intellect, wear a bow tie AND rock a t-shirt and recite hip hop lyrics .  Don’t let ’em box you out or box you in!

Question of the Day: What does hip hop look like in your opinion?

Action of the Day: Look at the different circles you run in and look for ways to merge them.

Run the Point; from where you are, with what you have!

Your Ambassador,

Mike Bruny
