    I met him this year. He's just as blunt in person. Thanks for sharing.

    His words are so true. I see so many geniuses in the black community and the biggest hurdle to their success is OUTPUT. The person that becomes the most well-known is the one who puts out the most work, good or bad. OUTPUT, OUTPUT, OUTPUT!
