My friend Kristoff Murphy and I go way back. He was one of the first people to introduce me to many folks in the music industry at the time….we did a few mixtapes together and he really believed in my writing / poetry. Fast forward several years and we caught each other over the phone reminiscing and exploring what the other was up to. After a few convos and sharing some of the PoAnguardia (Fine Art Poery) I’d been working on, it hit us to see if the recording artist he was working with *A Boogie With The Hoodie* would be into the work.
After sharing a few poems and ideas with Kristoff and his team, he landed on the poem I wrote below….which after meeting Boogie and delivering it to him at a studio in NYC, it made all the sense in the world why the piece resonated.
They dont wanna see it
but they must
is a birthright
