What kind of title is that? Well, I was inspired by the saying and then by the film. I’ll clarify the saying first. Have you ever heard the saying “Three The Hard Way?” My first lyrical recollection is in a song that I later learned is the theme of a film starring Fred Williamson, Jim Brown, and Jim Kelly:

Today’s composition is inspired by the film’s theme song title more than its content, though if you’re in the mood for a throwback Blaxploitation film, I recommend that you check it out. Today we are going to focus on THREE THE LEGENDARY WAY

Let’s span the timeline starting with: 

This young man is a legend in his own time, and there are very few artists that actually get to claim such a title – for so long. Michael is celebrating a birthday this month and he’s still half-of-a-dime short of 40. Though you wouldn’t know it by his resume, accolades, accomplishments, or his incredible taste in women. Lori Harvey is the woman on his arm, and while she is a showstopper in on site, Michael is a tough act to follow. In 2020 People Magazine crowned him Sexiest Man Alive and the New York Times touted him on a short list of “25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century” and Lori concurred.

Michael is a walking exhibition of BE if you ask any of his adoring fans on social media, however if you ask me, I’d dote incessantly on his reel work. Denzel Washington is co-producer of A JOURNAL FOR JORDAN, starring Michael. The film exposes a great way to communicate with future legacy. Speaking of “future legacy” CREED III is COMING SOON, as directed by Michael B. Jordan. Keep your eye on this three-and-a-half decade old craft master. It looks like he’s just getting started:

No matter his age, Will Smith will always be THE FRESH PRINCE to me because his resume appears to be stale proof. No matter what he is casted in, it’s usually fresh and packed with serial inference. You gotta’ love that. Hailing from Philly he is a fighter, but he won’t be starring alongside the CREED III protagonist because Will is legendary for keeping a packed project schedule of his own:

Will’s talent exhibition has been BE for a very long time. One of my favorite throwback film’s is SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION. It was culturally amazing. I learned so much. Mmph.

Three years past the ‘half-a-dollar club, Will has been married for a whopping 25-years to Jada Pinkett and the two have built a wonderful family together that will continue to expand the Smith legacy. 

Speaking of legacy, let’s drop in on Mr. Smiths will and his capacity at work:

Catch it on PEACOCK

I told you. Will stays fresh. What type of freshness-sealed life plan does one have to pre-visualize to actually stay on-top of his/her game for the long run? I think the operative word is “plan,” or at least that’s what I am learning from:

When I was younger, I remember my 2nd grade teacher asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up? Straight away, I said an artist, and to this day I have followed through; I am an artist. Not long ago, I was able to drop in on CORNER TABLE TALK with Brad Johnson podcast, Season 2, Episode 1: Fab5Freddy  | Avant Garde Maestro and it was outstandingly informative. Mr. Johnson recalled a story of someone asking Fab5Freddy what he wanted to be when he grew up and Fab responded “Me;” he wanted to grow up to be himself. Whoa. BE on display. That is the coolest answer I’ve ever heard. I was tickled and enlightened.

For as much as I thought I knew about my friend of 15-years, after listening to Mr. Johnson unearth some very intricate details of Fab’s life I realized that he has more dimensions than a Modern Round Brilliant Cut Diamond. And like T.I., Fab5Freddy may also be a vampire. Where is the aging process? Just recently he has allowed his hair to grow silver, giving him an appearance of “seasoned.” Personally, I think it’s platinum hair dye — but I digress in jest.

In one lifetime, Fab5Freddy is a Visual Artist, Film Producer, Music Video Director, Lyrical Inspire, Documentarian, Hip Hop Statesman, Multimedia Curator, Italian Resident, and …

Italian resident? Yes, you read that correctly. Fab once had residency in Italy. He also sought, out and met Fellini. I heard this, too, via the Corner Table Talk and it had me scratching my head because Fab isn’t even at retirement age, so exactly when did he have time to do all of this in Italy? I don’t know, but he did tell Blondie…

Me? I’m Qui and I’ve much more to say,
