The mind of The Strength; your favorite producer's, favorite producer's, unknown producer. I live by these words: "Beats for emcees; not rappers."

Thanks to everyone for all the kind words during this tough time.

I appreciate you more than I can express by text. Thank you.

one of the coolest posts i’ve seen on tumblr

The amount of wisdom…

…that that man instilled into me in such a short period; into all of us… He prepared us for this world. He molded us into the men that we’ve become. He has shown us what it is to be truly great. I’m so thankful. I refuse to morn him being called home, but damn, it hurts.

But, he has also taught us the true meaning of strength. So, I will endure. Because, I know without a doubt that I will see him again.

Rest in Paradise, Granddad. Know that you went home leaving awesomeness to carry on.

In 2 more year (age 4), Aria Illest will start her training. After all, she has to live up to the Illest name. 

She is gorgeous, so I will require her to take care of herself. This will keep the rest of my family out of prison.  

Whoa!

Chick mad because I opened the door for her? I know how I was raised. I’m in the wrong, how?

That’s okay. For now on, I’m gonna bully politeness upon people; come let me open this door for you, or I’m robbing you for your wallet and phone.

Run dat.

From the desk of The Strength:

Dear all,

All big, bald, bearded black men do NOT look like Rick Ross or Kimbo Slice. The next person to call me either one, I’m going to break your right eye socket with a left haymaker, then a create mediocre Hip-Hop power ballad about it produced by Justice League.

I promise.

That is all.

  • Judge:

  • Me:

    It seems so, your honor.

  • Judge:

    Case dismissed.

    On behalf of Lena Not Ill, we...
