Tell us about the process for coming up with the cover?
The cover was shot in front of a 15ft Mac Dre mural that i got made for a video for my song “Izm” I thought it would be perfect for the cover of “My Opinion” because it was such a serious picture.
What was the inspiration for the story?
My life is the inspiration for the story, all the ups and downs, wins and losses my blessings and lessons. The book is basically about chasing a dream and what happens when you catch it.
What do you hope your readers take away from this book?
Hopefully readers of my book will take away a lesson that I learned at the boys and girls club in Vallejo from the late great Mr. Gram and that’s “The way you overcome adversity determines your character”
If your book was to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it?
If my book “My Opinion” was made into a movie of course I would want Angela Bassett to play my mother and I would probably find a new actor to play me.
What were the key challenges you faced when writing this book?
The key challenge of writing my book was clearing my mind and being as honest as possible. I started my book after overcoming a tragedy in my life so it was challenging trying to find a piece of mind.
What was the highlight of writing this book?
The highlight of writing my book was the look on my mother’s face when I gave her the first copy. My mother taught me how to read when I was five years old and it was because of her I fell in love with the written word so it was dope to share that special moment.
