I got a new job. I’m hosting PUNK’D on @quibi NO ONE IS SAFE
Words from the greatest American to ever live. How does the candidate that you support for President in 2020 feel about reparations for African Americans?
When I was asked to eulogize the greatest sports figure of all time, I was shocked, honored and honestly nervous. Muhammad Ali inspired me ever since I can remember through his classic fights, poetry and most importantly his activism. He was a famed fighter but his words are what many of us will remember. The fearless and revolutionary opinions he had on blackness and war and are the profound barriers that will always single him out as the greatest to ever live. When the ESPYS asked that I perform a song called Blessings from my then recent album Coloring Book I was ecstatic. But I knew in my heart someone who had shaped my life so much deserved something more. So 2 nights before the award show I wrote this for him. I asked @realcottontale to find me an all male choir to represent the masculine presence of the Fruit Of Islam. I asked @jamilawoods and @teddydobetter to do background for me as they always elevate any musical experience. And I grabbed a few clips from my favorite Ali interviews of him talking about meeting God because God is the Greatest. ESPYS awards heard the song for the first time the day of the show and loved it and approved me performing it for the broadcast. It was an experience I believe few will understand because its so unique. He really changed and formed my life from afar and I loved him very much. Happy Birthday and God Bless 1/17/42 - 6/3/16 🙌🏾🥇🙏🏾 #muhammadali
Fearless but kind.

Just a reminder that a dude, who I am so blessed to call mentor, is receiving the coveted Mark Twain Award on PBS Tuesday night. Dave is the greatest comic to ever live and that’s not even his greatest quality. He is a thoughtful teacher to all, and I can say if you’re someone navigating this industry while trying to keep your integrity he is the blueprint. Well deserved Dave!! It was an amazing evening my wife and I will remember forever! #marktwainawards @elaineyouknowwho

Hey guys I’ve decided to cancel the Big Tour. I know it sucks and its been a lot of back and forth with reschedules and rerouting, but it’s for the best. I’m gonna take this time to be with family, make some new music and develop my best show to date. I’m deeply sorry to anyone with a ticket who has supported me this past decade by coming to a show and rocking out with me and I feel even worse for anyone who was planning on making this their first Chance concert. Thank you all for an amazing year, and a huge thanks to my team and family for being so strong through this whole year. I promise to come back much stronger and better in 2020 and hope to see some of you guys there. I truly love you and God bless.
See u soon
