  • To the Fathers In and Out of Jail

    First and foremost, I want to send my love to everybody out there dealing with the madness that never seems to let up. Now, I want to salute the fathers in and out of jail who are holding down their position, even in adversity. We have to make sure we do our part. This is for the fathers who are doing that and more. I want y’all to know y’all inspire me to do better and keep pushing and doing what I’m supposed to do. In prison you here guys say f*** Father’s Day, and it... READ MORE

  • Letter to the Bloods and Crips: Stop the Madness

    When I first started to write this post I told my brother Maal that it was going to be a banger, and I need time to get it right. I wanted my head to be in the right place. Before you read, know and understand that I’m addressing the Bloods and Crips of every state across the United States. I’m not just speaking on Jersey. I want to see change everywhere because we are losing this battle. Aren’t all of y’all tired of having your loved ones found dead in those streets?... READ MORE

  • To the Mothers

    First and foremost, I want to send my love to everybody out there. I have been stuck in a rut and wasn’t in the mood to write, but after I got out of that empty thinking I was able to pull myself back up. Here I am again shining like the sun when it touches the top of the sky. I don’t want to make this about me, but I will say this, I want everyone who is reading this to post it on their page or sites. I’m going to try and get to the point. Now bare with me. And to my guys... READ MORE

  • Letter to the Kids: Be Better Than Me

    Now before I begin I want to salute the youth who read this because that shows that you’re willing to listen and try to find other ways to deal with whatever you’re going through. For that you have my unwavering respect, from one to the next. My name is Al-Tariq Gumbs and in the streets my name was Killa Reek. I was and probably am still considered one of the worst street-gang members to come out of New Jersey. At the age of 15 I was locked up for robbery, guns and all types of... READ MORE

  • Sankofa

    I decided to title this one Sankofa. If you don’t by now Killa Reek is dead, and I choose to be called Sankofa from now on. I have been trying to shed the name Killa Reek, but it’s been hard to break. My people and guys in here love the name and the past that came with it. I have to tell them over and over Killa is dead and gone and they need to get used to it. Now, if you don’t know what Sankofa means I would like for you to look it up and you’ll understand why I used... READ MORE

  • Merry Christmas: Show Some Love

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, even if u don’t celebrate. Find a way to put a smile on your loved ones’ faces because it’s too much madness out there. Show some love because it’s not about the day, it’s about the giving; the idea of doing something for someone other than yourself. I now get that. Merry Christmas or happy holidays, whichever you prefer. Enjoy your day and weekend and be safe. Love and peace, King Sankofa Live from Federal Correctional Institution... READ MORE

  • Writing is Like a Release

    What’s good my people? I’m sitting at this computer thinking about what to write. It’s crazy because I came up with this idea for a new book, and I’m thinking about making it into a show. I will be writing movies next year. I want to direct. I love to write. Writing is like a release. I never really speak on how I learned how to write. Here is a story on how a young street dude began to realize he has a talent other than putting in work and doing nonsense. Thanks for... READ MORE

  • Mental Prison

    Now, I can’t say when this started to happen, but for some reason my mind started to tell itself that I didn’t deserve to be happy, that I didn’t deserve to be treated like the man I was. Something in my mind told me that no one loved me. Something in my mind told me that my family hated me. Something told me that my lil brothers and sistas didn’t love me. Something told me that people in my life be running game on me. Something told me that prison is where I need to... READ MORE

For that I deeply apologize. Now, it has taken me so long to sit down and write this letter. My peoples, before she passed away, told me to write you but I... READ MORE
