In theory, someone like me was never supposed to get the opportunity to be in my position.
I spent the early years of my life sleeping on floors and couches, running the streets as my mother dealt with the challenges of a drug addiction. Now I own what some say is the most influential and culturally relevant sports agency in America and do business with some of the biggest companies and most prominent people in the world. Back on my block, nobody could have predicted this. My trajectory is only supposed to happen to Ivy League types, or gifted athletes or entertainers - not someone who's five-foot-eight and grew up with a pair of dice in one hand and a pistol in the other.
I'm finally ready to tell that story.
