..last night: he performed stand up for the first time at an open mic in manhattan. i loathe myself for not taping it..he told a room full of strangers that he “punches” me in the “pussy” and he made white girls who play the ukele uncomfortable. he impressed mature caucasian gentlemen with his knowledge of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and recited one of his most beautiful rhymes a capella, right after asking the audience if they cared to hear the story of how he lost his virginity. he crammed all of that magnificence and alot more into 4 minutes of stage time. we ended the evening by having a loud discussion on the sidewalk in the cold nyc air about the black community and the role our men and women play in relationships. i couldn’t have asked for a better night.
