I'm SleepingOut

Hello Family! I have accepted Covenant House’s challenge to spend a night sleeping on the street in solidarity with the 4.2 million young people who experience homelessness each year. I decided to Sleep Out because I felt the need to do something, to help in some sort of way even if it is simple. New York is a home a share with millions of people, and if I can help it become a better city then I will.

One night can make a difference.

As part of my Sleep Out, I am raising funds and awareness for Covenant House, a shelter for kids experiencing homelessness and trafficking. Covenant House continuum of care provides essential services to help kids transition from homelessness to independence. I worked with young people for a number of years who were "at-risk" an academic term to diniluate that they were statistically destined to struggle in our society. Organizations like Covenant House often can be that lifeline that can keep these young people from drowning.

Help me help kids. Make a donation in support of my Sleep Out by clicking the “Support Me” button below.

I can’t do this without you. Thanks for your support!

Wu-Tang: An American Saga

Been sitting on this for a couple of weeks, but super excited to announce I’m joining the cast of Wu-Tang: An American Saga. Written by The RZA and Alex Tse and set to premiere on Hulu. It focuses on the story of the Wu-tang in Staten Island aka Shaolin during the early 90s. I’m blessed to play Divine, RZA’s older brother who later becomes the CEO of Wu-Tang Productions.

This production feels very serendipitous. My mother is from Staten Island not far from the Park Hill Projects where a chunk of this story takes place. I was raised in the Nation of Islam which the 5 Percent Nation is an offshoot of and learned the 120 lessons that many of the Wu members speak directly about. My father is an advent kung-fu nerd and we used to bound over old kung-fu and anime movies.

Thank you to my team at UTA: Allison Stroot and Ben Colman and my manager Laura Gibson. Stay posted for more information.
