May 14, 1966 – Charles Ray Wiggins, better known as Raphael Saddiq, was born in Oakland, California and is the singer/composer of one of my favorite slow jams ever, “All I Ask of You.” If you were to judge his life through his music, you would’ve never known that he had a very difficult childhood, losing 3 brothers and a sister from homicide, suicide and drugs. He used his soulful gift to show the world that even through tribulations, beauty can still shine through. He began singing and playing instruments at age 6 and since then, never looked back. He is an old soul in a modern day individual, and he’s co sidered to be more of an old school R&B. Saddiq is one of a kind and it shows through his music and the way the fans (mostly women) receive him. #RealR&B
May 14, 1977 – Terrence Thornton, better known as Pusha T, was born in The Boogie down Bronx in New York, raised in Virginia and is one half of the hip hop duo, Clipse, with his brother, Malice. Clipse started making noise when teaming up with Pharell, and now the brothers have their own label, Re-Up Records. Pusha T is also signed to Kanye’s GOOD Music label, where he dropped his first solo mixtape, “Fear of God.” #Grindin’

Happy Birthday George Lucas, Raphael Saddiq, Pusha T and Mark Zuckerberg!
