1. Rest in Peace Nana.. Because of you my father was inspired to be greater than anyone could’ve imagined possible and thanks to that, we have been raised with a work ethic that leaves no doubt in whatever we may do… Because of you, my father, me, and my brother know to value education and the strength of an individual beyond the materialistic surroundings he places on himself. My dad is hurting now and this has me in a newfound anger that’s on another level. The world…. No, life, has fucked up in a way that it won’t understand. I will channel this anger and unleash it in the best and worst of ways. It has rocked my father down to his core and more than that it has left a crippling effect on this family but we will rise and move forward together.
    You don’t cause my parents pain and expect me to idly sit back and not do a fucking thing about it. Life has hurt my father and taken his mother away. I have something to dish out on life myself.
    Grandma, we will spend the time we need to mourn having lost you. We’re human. It’s the initial feeling, but, beyond that we will celebrate your life beyond comparison. You were a kind, compassionate, caring woman that impacted the lives of hundred, maybe thousands of children, yet made above and beyond efforts to make sure your family felt your love in it’s purest form that cannot and will not ever be rivaled by anyone. I’ll miss speaking to you every Mother’s Day, every birthday, every Christmas, every New Years…. I’ll miss your presence that elevate the spirits of those around you.. You are another angel that will watch over your family as we will continue to pray that The Lord watches over you in heaven. I’m grateful that you suffer no more and are finally at peace and resting. I’m grateful that my father can and will say his goodbyes to you. I’m grateful that you are my grandmother. I’m blessed to have met you. We will forever cherish and smile because we have priceless memories of you. My children will know of their great grandmother and what a wonderful, powerful, and loving woman, more than that, what an amazing human being you were. God needed you up above and that’s just fine. He needs greatness in his presence and he got just that with you. Someday I will see you again and when I do, well we’ll have a blast, I’m sure of that.

    Rest In Peace Nana. I love you with all my heart. Everything great that happens here on out is because of you and, Marita, and Mia..

    [Verse 1]
    And I’m in denial
    And it don’t take no x-ray to see right through my smile
    I know, I be on the go
    And there ain’t no drink out there that can numb my soul
    Oh no

    [Hook] x2
    All we wanna do is take the chains off
    All we wanna do is break the chains off
    All we wanna do is be free
    All we wanna do is be free

    [Verse 2]
    Can you tell me why
    Every time I step outside I see my niggas die
    I’m lettin’ you know
    That there ain’t no gun they make that can kill my soul
    Oh no

    [Hook] x2

    [Eyewitness account from Dorian Johnson:]
    So there was like, officers pulling him inside the car
    Hes trying to pull away and at no time the officer said
    That he was going to do anything until he pulled out his weapon
    His weapon was drawn and he said, “I’ll shoot you” or, “I’m going to shoot” and in the same moment, the first shot went off, and we looked down and he was shot and there was blood coming from him
    Then we took off running

    [Verse 3]
    Are we all alone, fighting on our own
    Please give me a chance, I don’t wanna dance
    Somethings got me down, I will stand my ground
    Don’t just stand around, don’t just stand around

    [Eyewitness account from Dorian Johnson:]
    And as we took off running I ducked and hid for my life, because I was fearing for my life, and I hid behind the first car I saw. My friend, he kept running, and he told me to keep running because he feared for me too. So as he was running the officer was trying to get out of the car, and once he got out the car he pursued my friend but his weapon was drawn. Now he didn’t see any weapon drawn at him or anything like that, us going for no weapon. His weapon was already drawn once he got out the car. He shot again, and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air, and started to get down but the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and he fired 7 more shots and my friend died

    J. Cole is truly a real artist, this hit my core.


    Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free - Cole
