#HIGO @TheRoots . I know I never claim favorites but out of our arsenal, this has a special place in m’heart. Small tidbit: almost didn’t happen tho. I woke up Jan 20th to a barrage of messages and texts but one of the texts caught my eye... “Yo dude, we just got dropped from the label” -Richard Nichols This put a foil in my plans. Knowing how underestimated we were being perceived taking a late night tv gig. I wanted to silence naysayers by making some of our edgiest music ever. Stuff we would never dare attempt if we were dependent on just surviving off music and music alone. It was 2 years since our fiery #RisingDown (an angry Bush era album) & we were struggling on how to deal with hip hop and 40 and presenting something on point. But now this. I was wondering aloud “do we just take it?” “Do we shop elsewhere?” “What now?” I let a good 5 hours go by before it sank in. “I’m never gonna have business at 1755 Broadway ever again!” Did i care? Was this part of my life over? We Shot Fallon and between commercials while the guest band was setting up I decided I’m not taking this lying down and most importantly of ALL DAYS for this to happen. Grabbed my cell: “Come on LA!...dawg how you gonna drop a mofo on HIS BIRTHDAY DUDE!—you coulda at least waited a week!” He thought about it “Damn that is somewhat cold, I didn’t know ahmir, happy birthday.” Thanks i think. “You have new music to play me?” I lied and said i did, but desperate times call for... And just like that in a snap: i was a Def jam artist again.. We buckled down and in 4 months, turned our album in. Whew. #HowIGotOver .8 years ago today....

#yolkporn is shakshuka yolk porn 😎. If you've never heard of (or had) shakshuka, it's a poached egg and tomato dish that's extremely popular in both the Middle East and North Africa. At @inthedez it's made with harissa curry and topped with herbs and tahini, and if you just realized you're physically attracted to it, please know that’s entirely normal.The sexiest

#justdoit -- #Nike #NikeFootball #NikeSoccer #Football #Soccer #Nigeria #Naija #SoarSuperEagles #SuperEaglesThis is Naija: A Nigerian Football Story. Watch the full film now on Youtube. ⠀ Wherever you travel in Nigeria it is football that serves as a universal language that unifies this land. From the streets, to the clubs, to the markets, to the pitch, from the energy and chaos of Lagos to the wooded savannas of Abeokuta, the football is not only the rhythm, but drives the spirit, belief and the energy of Nigeria today. ⠀ Believe.
