(I have to say that I am also not entirely sure I would be getting asked this as much if I wrote about, say, Fleetwood Mac or Led Zeppelin or The Who or or)

If the rebuttal there is "well, why not write a book about every band or group you love?" I must say, I have considered it, and only the presence of linear time and the looming certainty of death has given me pause in my pursuits

I get that "because I had a lot of curiosity and a lot of feelings, and I was finally given a permission and resources to pull both of those things together" isn't the sexy answer but, that is indeed the answer

I have genuinely found that I don't know how to respond to that question in particular, because I never imagined a case where urgently writing about a group you love when given a lot of freedom to do so would be in any way out of the ordinary

(this is not a criticism of repeat Qs being asked in interviews / I get why that happens & it doesn't bother me much) BUT a q I keep getting asked is "why A Tribe Called Quest?" and honestly I have a hard time fathoming an answer that isn't "why NOT ATCQ? Now and, well...always?"

It’s so important to have happy, healthy platonic relationships with people you can be unapologetically yourself with.

This is truly frightening. I've been talking with Black immigrants all week who are scared to leave their homes or get into cars for fear of being picked up & disappeared. You know that whole "first they came for..." thing - it is happening right now.

The opposite of the messiah complex is convincing yourself there’s nothing special about you and ending up ignoring your calling. Keep an eye out for both extremes. We are all special and there is a divine reason each of us were chosen to be born.

Emotions leave people uncomfortable. They don’t know what to do with you. And you will think it’s your problem, that you’re too much, until you realize they are rejecting your humanity because they have denied themselves theirs.
