For the past couple of years Afros and Love Songs has only been my voice. I originally started it as a space for me to share my thoughts and feelings, and since it has grown into so much more. Now, it’s time to breathe some new life into this space and I’m excited to bring my fellow redbone homie G Wood into the fold. He’s all soul and I can’t wait to share his thoughts with y’all. To make sure he was “qualified” I asked him some of my favorite questions:
