I saw online that you were related to Colin Powell. Is that true?
Yeah, he’s my great uncle. I met him around Desert Storm, and at the age I was at there was a bunch of great propaganda done for it where there were like trading cards and t-shirts and shit, and you were convinced that was cool. I remember asking him, “Oh man! Are you going to be using bazookas?” I can’t even imagine, like, wow. What a goofy thing to ask. I think in some way related to Malcolm Gladwell as well. I’m not sure it’s as direct, but my mom told me that the other day. I was reading a Gladwell book, and my mom was like, “Oh yeah, you’re related to him.”
