#NaptownSlim - just real talk.
Peacepeace everybody. It’s Naptown Slim again.
I really love that cat in the picture behind me. That’s my gee, Matt. He’s gone now, man. Shit still hurts. I ain’t even tryna sugar-coat it, man. The shit hurts.
I might get all up in my emotions right now, but I ain’t trippin, because I’m supposed to get all up in my emotions. I’m standing in a spot where this brother gave me work, advice, love, care, food, a SPOT, man…when I really didn’t feel like I had anywhere to be. This is my old friend from school, man. We went back so many years already at this point…and my dawg said, “Slim, we got you. Come on in.”
And I came on in….and it was like I was already there and had been there the whole time.
I’m tryna keep this short and sweet, cuz a gee really gotta wash his face and get back to work. Let this be known.
I’m really really really glad that that cat behind me sipping the beer was my friend…and there’s a whoooooole buncha people that would say the same thing….and I’m grateful that I know a whooooole buncha those people.
If you can’t say that about your life when it’s all said and done, you lived wrong. Ain’t nobody gonna be talking about what designer you wearing in your coffin, fool. You better get some appreciation for life while you got it. You better learn to share what you got to offer with these world, cuz that’s how you really leave your mark. My gee, Matt, got a legacy of love and greatness that lives on in all of us and in the very room where I am standing, taking this picture, forcing a smile when I wanna cry…
…but I’m here with my gees. LIfe ain’t so bad, man.
I miss you, Matt. Slim really love you, bruh. Thank you for everything, man. You were truly a friend to everybody who met you and that is the greatest thing you can say about a man’s life.
Peace, y’all. Naptown Slim gotta get back to this work like Matt told me to do. I ain’t stopping, man.
CLICK THE PIC TO SEE WHAT MY GEE, MATT TOLD ME I NEEDED TO DO. MY DUDE.
