In Search For Soul Food

My days in the empty warehouse continued to take a toll on me, and I couldn’t help but find myself missing the days of Purfek Storm Group. Even as a behind-the-scenes player, I felt more alive then than now, sweeping a dirty carpet of rat droppings. I longed for the excitement and creativity that surrounded me during those times. One day, as Cheez and I drove through Queens, we stumbled upon Burgundy’s Cafe, owned by Coach PR, co-host on Weekend Work. The moment we stepped inside, I was flooded with memories. The atmosphere reminded me of the day I had filmed artist Rotimi handing out food to the youth. A bittersweet wave of emotions washed over me as I felt both happy and sad to be there. As we waited for our food, I couldn’t help but notice the photos of celebrities that adorned the walls. Each one, a testament to the vibrant energy and history of the cafe. The images stirred up nostalgia, taking me back to my days at Shade45 with Storm. I remembered the hustle, the laughter, and the passion that fueled our work. It felt like another lifetime ago, but the emotions were still so vivid. When our food was ready, Cheez and I decided to enjoy our meal to-go, taking in the sights and sounds of the bustling neighborhood. As we dug into the most delicious plate of soul food I had ever tasted, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for the little moments of joy that life had to offer. The flavors of the tender, seasoned fried chicken, the richness of the creamy macaroni and cheese, and the comforting warmth of the collard greens were a symphony in my mouth. Each bite brought me closer to the essence of the community that thrived within the walls of Burgundy’s Cafe. The food was a testament to the love and care put into every dish, and as I savored each mouthful, I felt a sense of connection to the people who had come before me. As Cheez and I enjoyed our meal, I couldn’t help but reflect on the rollercoaster of my life thus far. Despite the hardships and the self-destructive tendencies that seemed to follow me, there were still moments like these that reminded me of the beauty and resilience of the human spirit. There was still so much to experience, and so much to learn. The empty warehouse may have been a stark contrast to my days with Purfek Storm Group, but it served as a reminder that life is full of twists and turns. And as I stood in Burgundy’s Cafe, surrounded by the faces of celebrities and the memories of my past, I knew that my pursuit of global domination was far from over.
