In the Beginning it seemed like the ladies seemed to flock to the New Statesider from the Nations Capitol. Ibz grabbed a few girlfriends and held it down for all my fellow Chocolate City folk back home ;).....Though I did keep it PG now lol

Going from classes being taught inside, to them being taught outside on an island with Hott Chicks and nice weather didn't help either in my process of focusing lol.

It was hard to focus on school @ first. I mean being on an island also known as Paradise with beautiful girls and beaches got a brotha a lil distracted. I mean who wouldn't be??? But with some serious dedication, focus and mainly beatdowns from the mama, your boy was back on track!!

Moms is a Pharmacist and when things went south with her and my step-dad she ended up getting a job relocation to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. My brother and I didn't know where and what St. Thomas would be like. We thought it was some little village or something somewhere, but it turned out to be pretty BoMb!!...........It was actually an island, not a village.

Houses in Potomac, MD are CrAzY BIG. Family wondered why I was never home on the weekends lol. Who would be with friends whose houses are bigger than our SCHOOL??? Don't worry though, when I make it Big, houses this size will just be big enough to turn into my children's playhouse. $) $) $)
Problems in the household forced my bro and I to move back to Washington, DC with our grandparents where my bro and I started school in the upscale area of Potomac, MD. The McLean School is where I started off my good ol' High School Days and Sports Days playing lacrosse, basketball and running cross country. MVP for Junior Varsity Basketball, 198 points in the season and Most Improved for Lacrosse. I'm not cocky....I'm just niccccce!!!lol
Not everyone seemed to like Ibz at National Christian Academy, which lead to a lot of beatdowns and scared days at school on my part. Hard to believe I got the worst beatdowns at a Christian school lol...thought everyone had the Love of Christ up in there!
Just 2 of the many Big Time Ballers that National Christian Academy let out and I had a chance to go to school with. Michael Beasley and Patrick Ewing Jr. Believe it or not Ewing was WAY bigger and a lot more talked about than Beasley back then. I helped Beasley get his game up ;)
It was tough to get used to being away from home for 2 weeks at first, especially in a place A LOT different from my home in the good ol US of A. After about a few days, meeting some nice people from their, touring the country and getting used to the lifestyle, my homesickness started to dwindle. I have to say that it was a once in a lifetime experience that I am glad my mother decided to make me do. Some parts were scary though, but I found it cool that the people their thought I was Bow Wow.......Probably because I was the lightest kid out their with braids lol. I enjoyed the celeb feeling while it lasted.
Momz felt that I was getting a lil too spoiled so she decided it would be best to send a brotha to Nigeria with some of her co-workers to see how it feels to live with people who have next to Nothing in a place that looked a lot different from my neighborhood. What happened to beatings or taking away my tv and toys. She had to send a brotha to Another Continent to learn a lesson??? I am not going to lie, it was a Good Experience!!
When it came time for Middle School, Ibz started off at Lord Baltimore Middle School, which is now known as Isaac Gourdine Middle School. Had some pretty thuggish kids over their...Ibz def wasnt used to all that. He had to change up the look and swag a lil bit, if you know what I mean.
Moved from Washington, DC, living with my grandparents to Ft. Washington, MD when I was around 9 or 10 years old with my mom, bro and step-dad and would stay out in the streets with the hommies until those good ol' streetlights came on. Street football and rolling down big hills on skateboards were popular back then, now we are too old for all that nonsense.
Ben's Chili Bowl is a landmark restaurant in Washington, DC., located in the Shaw neighborhood of NorthWest D.C. It is known locally for its chili dogs, half-smokes, and milkshakes, and has been an essential part of the neighborhood's history since its founding in 1958. It was frequented by both police and protesters during the 1968 Washington, DC riots, and is regularly visited by celebrities such as Bill Cosby, Chris Tucker, Mayor of DC, Adrian Fenty, and the well-known President Barack Obama. The restaurant's founders have been inducted into the D.C. Hall of Fame. If your ever in the area you should grab some grub from Ben's Chili Bowl and see what you think.
