The smell of beer mixed with the aroma of Hennessy filled the room, as we all gathered around the makeshift “step and repeat” I had created in my living room. It was a hodgepodge of laminated sheets and pages, adorned with the logos of my Sunday Night Screenings and Bud and Roach Show. It wasn’t perfect, but it was ours, and we loved it. As we posed for pictures, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride wash over me. We had come a long way since the early days of Grove Street Family, and it was moments like these that made all the hard work and dedication worth it. We were no longer just a group of friends from the neighborhood, we were a team, a family. We reminisced about the good old days, sharing stories of obstacles along the way. We laughed at our mistakes, but we also celebrated our achievements, no matter how small. We were on our way to global domination, and nothing was going to stop us. As the night wore on, the drinks flowed freely, and our conversations became more animated. We talked about our plans for the future, the new projects we were working on, and the new heights we wanted to reach. We were driven by a passion that burned bright, and it was contagious. We fed off each other’s energy, pushing ourselves to be better, to do more, to be more. Looking back on that night now, I realize that it was a turning point for us. Seeing those logos on my wall, and the faces of those posing in front of them, solidified that this was a moment when we stopped just dreaming about our goals and started achieving them. We were no longer content with being just good enough, we wanted to be great. And we knew that as long as we had each other, we could achieve anything we set our minds to. Everyone had a role in this story, and no matter how big my head was, I was still grounded enough to know that I needed the people around me.
