My Journey With The Dark Man | @coachdpolite @trackstarz

Dark Man X. Wow. I do not remember my introduction to DMX. I cannot remember the first song I heard or anything like that. However, I do remember when “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot” came out, he went right to the top of my list of favorite artists. His gritty, raspy-voiced, no-nonsense lyricism captivated […]

Fatherhood: This Is Legacy | @trackstarz @coachdpolite

I woke up early one morning, struggling through life. I began to mourn the loss of my grandfather all over again. I felt weak and wished he was alive to give me some advice—some strength. My grandfather, along with my grandmother, raised me. Losing him was akin to losing a father. That morning, I penned […]

The Death Test | @CoachDPolite @Trackstarz

Last year I lost the greatest man I have ever known—my grandfather. Married to my grandmother for more than 50 years, they became my legal guardians when I was four years old and raised me until I left for college. My grandfather was extremely intentional in what he wanted me to know. While at the […]

What Are You Known For? | @CoachDPolite @Trackstarz

Hebrews 11:2 states, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.” Being known for your faith is a good thing. We want to be known for so many things in this world: known as a good coach, good singer, […]

Mamba Mentality | @trackstarz @coachdpolite

The news hit us all so hard. My basketball team had just won a big road game and when the coaches went to the locker room to celebrate it was weirdly somber. After we huddled, someone broke the news to me and I literally had to sit down. I really could not believe it. It […]

A Small Voice and Tall Coffee | @coachdpolite @trackstarz

I have been on this Christian journey for 15 years now. It has been full of peaks, valleys, and plateaus. I have experienced the grace and mercy of GOD in phenomenal ways and there have been times that I wondered if GOD even cared. At one point in time, there was an issue that I […]

Talking ‘Bout Crae | @coachdpolite @lecrae @djwadeo @trackstarz

Over the years, we have heard critique after critique of Lecrae Moore. Maybe some of it was valid and maybe some of it has not been. But, I am not here to really argue that. At the same time, I am not a Lecrae “stan,” so in no way am I saying that he is […]
