Ten years ago today, my documentary Drake: Better Than Good Enough premiered on MTV. Considering Drake's massive impact on the music industry over the last decade, this film is long overdue for a rebroadcast. Thanks to the amazing team of collaborators who made this project possible. #rap #hiphop #music #film #documentary @champagnepapi @mtv @radicalmedia DP @lukiedookie

I'm horrified but not shocked. Sadly, we've seen this many times before. Justice must be served!!! #justiceforahmaud #AhmaudAubrey #blacklivesmatter

Spending the weekend in tuxedos w the great @pataltema at the NAACP Image Awards. Thanks to the @naacpimageawards @naacp for nominating our series FREE MEEK. Also thanks to @amazonstudios @rocnation and IPC for the opportunity to make something so meaningful. Finally, I'm extremely grateful to all of my hardworking crew and collaborators who helped bring this important story to the world - especially Isaac and Paul Solotaroff.

It feels right that I take a moment to say thank you to the legendary Kobe Bryant. Back in 2008, I directed a Chinese documentary series call Kobe Mentu (mandarin for Kobe Disciples). That project not only placed me in the presence of Kobe’s greatness but also brought me all over mainland China--an enormously valuable experience that changed my worldview forever. Many years later, I interviewed Kobe for a different project. Off-camera we discussed the impact of Mentu on our professional and personal lives. Present at that shoot was his charming daughter Gianna, who struck me as a special young lady with enormous potential. I’m very grateful to have experienced their amazing spirits first hand and hope they are both resting easy.
