No What Up Yo today.
First off, this is for my Pop.
Listen to episode 1 here:
Its been one fucked up month people. One fucked in the head month.
My Pop passed away 2 weeks ago from cancer, on fathers day, which we knew he had and had been receiving treatment for, but after a bad fall…he ended up in the hospital with a broken neck the 2 weeks prior.
MRI’s were done, and thats when we saw the cancer…it was everywhere and he had been hiding the progression of it, for us, for himself…for hope.
He fought, like he always did, to survive, and in the end…passed on quietly on June 21, 2015.
It’s all been a fucking blur since then to be honest with you…
I am no stranger to grief…but this is my Pop man, father to me…to my sister Fawn and brother Derek.
Our family is an army:
He taught me everything after my mom died, how to love…and hate…
How to fight and be the peacemaker
And we went from being enemies on a battlefield, a king and his son…grieving over the death of the Queen…spilling our armies blood snd lives over the battlefields of the kingdom…
To laying down our arms for a truce.
You’re greatest enemy is your best friend…
You taught me to be a solider and I am as you are now.
To becoming close friends, the closest of friends…
I wanted to push on, as pointless as it all seems to be right now, I only know that the show must go on.
Oldboy and Myself agreed to tackle the monster, The Godfather Saga.
Films my father and I shared together, loved together…and we dedicate this to him, his life and how fucking much i miss him and wish he could hear it.
I love you Pop, so much. So much.
I hope you’re safe…
And I hope you and Mom found eternal happiness together.
This is for you Pop.
I love you.
“Oh, dear Dad…
Can you see me now?
I am myself, like you…somehow.
I wait up in the dark
For you to speak to me…
I’ll open up…
