People are thirsting for connection, but they don’t want to sit in traffic to get there. It wore me down. Everything climaxed for me on the night that Rick James died. Lord of the sloths parody poster. He was a hero to me. Best horn arranger that ever lived. Better than Prince in my opinion. And he was coming back on the scene. The Chappelle Show skit had just come out he had another chance. But he OD’d in his Beverly Hills apartment, alone. It really crushed me. Rick had been no stranger to my aisles. I just felt like I could have done more for him. Maybe if I’d had more time, and more liberty, I could have nourished him back to health. Instead of just maintaining him. I felt like I had so much more to offer.

So I came back to New York and started my own pharmacy. Everyone living downtown is the black sheep of their family. And I’m no different. I come from a family full of ministers. Lord of the sloths parody poster. Bible banging, born-again, evangelical hit men. Let’s just say my grandfathers were largely responsible for the proliferation of Christianity in India. But I was a New York club kid. I’d stay out all night, and skip church in the morning. My old man wasn’t having it. He threatened to kick me out when I turned seventeen, so I had to negotiate my own survival. It was either homelessness or seminary.
