Twelve people gathered at our home to witness Nomi’s arrival — @tyronelebon was one of them. This is a collage Tyrone made of the labor and birth. Still can’t verbalize this experience. Born 9 minutes before my birthday —best gift EVER. Love my Nomi. 💕✨♉️♉️

Haters will say you can’t be a this and a that. But I’m here to tell you you can. Life is not one dimensional —we are a multifaceted people and our lives spill into many buckets. You can be a musician, parent, business owner, painter, editor, student, community organizer, model, actor, and chocolate enthusiast. Don’t let people try to box you in and tell you what you can and can’t do, who you can and can’t be. When all else fails, look at @shaq —some of his titles include: pro basketball player, cop, actor, icy hot representative and of course, rapper. xxML

@brooklynrwhite typed her way into my life this year and I’ve been smarter ever since! Thank you for writing about important and often times forgotten issues. Your genius, Blackness, wit, and point of view is necessary as confederate America continually tries so hard to change/exclude our narrative. While I’m in favor of legalizing marijuana, I’m also an advocate of being #weedfreeyo (idk what keeps happening to the hashtag y’all). I am not against weed or weed smokers, not at all, but I do think abusing it can be detrimental and is a taboo topic. Honored to be able to contribute to @blackdoctororg and @brooklynrwhite’s article. Today marks my 674th day of being #weedfreeyo! xxML

I used to think voting didn’t matter. That I was rebelling against the system if I didn’t vote. Nah b. Exercise your rights! Nomi’s future depends on it! Our youth’s futures depend on it! Are you: a woman, man, gender non conforming, fluid, trans, queer, straight, gay, bi, lesbian, an immigrant, American, Black, brown, a person of color, white, blue, yellow, clear, 18+, old, middle aged, poor, rich, broke, or somewhere in between? —if so, you should vote. Why? Because your future also depends on it. “They” are trying to discourage you from being active in decisions and laws that impact you. You can’t stay woke if you’re asleep at the wheel! Your vote matters now more than ever! If you meet all the requirements to vote and choose not to —I better not hear you complain. So NYC, go vote you have a few hours left (polls close 9) and if you didn’t —you can redeem yourself on NOVEMBER 6th. Like Diddy once said, VOTE OR DIE.

How am I supposed to respond to so many young people dying? Drugs, violence and depression have killed so many young people I know —something’s gotta give. I’m pissed off but if I come at y’all angry, you’ll resist. I’m sad, but if I come with tears the point I’m trying to make will be overlooked. I’m frustrated, because y’all know better but aren’t doing better. But I will tell you one thing, I will no longer condone or be silent when it comes to abusing drugs and alcohol. Sorry (not sorry) but I feel like no one is talking about these issues yet friends and allies keep dying. What’s it going to take? I’m ready to contribute to a plan. Do we need to start retreats? Wholesome/ sober/ quality/ island/ fresh squeezed juice/ yoga meditation getaways? What’s the plan y’all? I just knew Stevie’s (Yams) passing was gonna wake y’all up, but from where I’m standing shit got worse. Maybe I’m too unrealistic or too big of a dreamer, but I really think with the right people involved we could pull off some fly “get your head & heart right” retreats. I’m tryna celebrate 80th birthdays with y’all and you playin. Live in peace the new motto. Vince once called me the Dr. Phil of our generation and at this point I’m ready cuz y’all need to be tough lovingly checked. If I didn’t care I wouldn’t say shit, but I do so fight me. Either way, we gotta do better individually and as a whole. This is mainly for my homies but if you read this and it speaks to you drop some gems cuz I’m ready to build. Yes this world is sick and messed up, but are you adding to the fuckery or making it better? I swear if you come as you are there’s no judgement. None of us have it figured out, but we can support each other. You don’t have to carry the load alone. I’m right here with you as a sister, as a friend. I love you and I want what’s best for you I promise I do. Reach out. Let’s live in peace. xxML

Last night after putting Nomi to bed, I ran an epsom salt bath, lit candles, and surrendered my heavy bones to the water. I focused my energy, gave thanks, and prayed. I prayed for you too, yes you. Do you feel it? That lil bit of extra love, did it reach you yet? ~~~~~~~~~++++++++++

PSA: (cc CASTING & CREATIVE DIRECTORS) Very grateful for being considered. BUT. Unless you come with something extremely fresh & unique or a substantial check that will help fund Nomi’s college or investment accounts—NO, you cannot USE my family for your MARKETING CAMPAIGN for little to nothing. We are NOT street cast. We ARE professionals with BUSINESSES and resumes to show. We have integrity. We are FLY and have BEAUTIFUL ENERGY —why else would you be reaching out? I have 20+ YEARS in this game. PLEASE come correct or not at all. We DO NOT need YOUR exposure. YOU want OUR magic. You WILL NOT exploit us. Nomi is a person with her own expenses. This is our livelihood, our artistry, but most importantly, this is OUR FAMILY. I do not need an agent to advocate on my behalf. The email link is posted for a reason. Other, smaller businesses understand, you should too. I am beyond grateful for all of the opportunities that have come my way and I pay it forward ten fold. HOWEVER, this $1500 for 1-2 years global usage on social media, websites, in-store, etc. y’all keep shopping around is DISRESPECTFUL and needs to be CALLED OUT. For a younger me, that was ok, but I’m not there anymore. I have worked my ass off and continue to raise the bar, so act accordingly. Y’all know who I am, who my family is, and what we do before approaching us, so don’t act like we’re young kids (Nomi excluded 🙃) with green thumbs. I say this with passion and pride because I KNOW MY/OUR WORTH. My family is blessed and will continue to be blessed because we walk with LOVE. To those of you who have given us unique experiences and/or come correct compensation wise —THANK YOU. BIG CORP HAS THE BUDGET. PAY UP. Comments are turned off cuz if you don’t get it, you don’t get it. #TALKTOMENICE#KNOWYOURWORTH 💕✨✨✨✨✨✨😁😎😏 // makeup: @rikkedengsoe

My happy boo! Nomi has an inner peace about her even strangers can sense. She is incredibly patient and kind. Before her arrival, Simon and I had made both good and bad life choices. I’m proud of us for being able to learn from our mistakes —a quality many are unable to exercise. Nomi is our gift, our love child. She was born 9 minutes before my birthday, claiming her independence out the gate! At not even 4 months, her strength is apparent. Her communication skills are on point —when she cries, it’s because she needs something and it’s our job to figure it out. I thank her everyday for making motherhood, parenting, and just loving her so wonderful! This is a candid shot her Grandma took of us aka my new favorite photo. LOVE YOU BOO!!! Thank you for choosing us!
