Through the Storm (single)
Be Water (Album)
First and foremost, I want to thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for each and every blessing He has bestowed upon me. To my beautiful wife: You are my best friend and put up with me through all my stubborn streaks and foolishness. You helped take care of me when I was almost up outta here. Love you! To my heaven-sent children: Even though you can't read this, I want you to know I love you both more than you'll probably ever know. To Mom and "Deddy": thank y'all for raising me to be a man who knows the importance of love over all else. I know it wasn't easy raising kids in the hood, but you did whatever you had to do to make sure your kids and even other people's kids succeeded. I promise to do the same for mine. Love y'all! Alli: Love you girl! Thanks for having my back, encouraging me, riding with me, and for shedding tears with me during those numerous times I, or we lost someone to the streets, to health, or otherwise. To Rodo: Thanks for always being there for me cuz. No matter how far apart we get or how long we go without talking, you'll always be more of a brother than a cousin. To JR: Thanks for always having my back and for believing in Seven Seaz when it seemed no one else would. To Reg: Thanks for being another brother to me. I pray God heals you and allows you to be you again. To my New Orleans brothers Chief and Redd: Know I send prayers up for y'all every single day. As long as we have blood in our veins and breath in our lungs, it's not too late to achieve what we desire in life. Ms Carpenter: Thanks for being my second mom. Love you! Punkin: Love you my second l'il sis. Brantlah: Love y'all! Thanks for being an extension of our family! Rodney: Thanks for being a true friend! You are truly family. Ruby: Thanks for doing the intro. Much love to ya!
