Part 1 finished, link in my bio

1πŸ’¬

In the early 2000's I was a young husband and father, firmly rooted in underground Hip Hop. I used to write a lot as a kid, poems, rap, or just short stories. That creative light never left me, so I still needed that outlet even as an adult. But time man, time. I was very busy between my faith, family, and work. Very little time for anything else. But I always made time for my favorite music. One of the things I kept seeing on CD's from The Roots was this weird phrase, "okayplayer". I ignored it for a couple years, dismissing it as some cryptic @Questlove reference to Philly. Eventually though...I gave in to my curiosity. Hopped on Yahoo (yeah, that long ago lol), and brought up the site. Instantly.Hooked. I can't remember what was on the home page, but I do remember being bombarded with all things music and thoughtful artists. I guess the term now is 'Woke'? πŸ˜‚ But even more, there were chat rooms (remember those? πŸ˜‚), of like minded fans. The "Boards," as they were affectionately called. Boards for discussing music, artists, general discussion, sports, community activism, and where I found a home, the Freestyle Boards. Imagine snappity snap poetry jams mixed with 8 Mile. But on the internet πŸ˜‚. I learned a lot about writing and poetic structure and getting general inspiration. It was an amazing experience. It was black Twitter a decade before Twitter existed. Barbershop/Beautyshop like. I can't name how many people gained the confidence needed to pursue their artistry in the real world. Foreign Exchange and Tanya Morgan were a DIRECT result of @okayplayer​. Not to mention all the already established artists who use the site and interact with their fans and general public. Erykah Badu was my favorite πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You'd have to read her posts to understand. I can go on and on about OKP. But it was an essential outlet for a young family man looking for a creative space. Salute. ✊✊✊
