Comment from SF Ali:


what’s a little wind chill when you’ve got ice coursing through your veins? what’s a powerball jackpot when you jacked the pot with nothing but your ball power? what’s your season when the whole fucking game belongs to yours truly? what’s a goon to a goblin to a ghost to a GOAT to godbody? what’s the point of flexing on the gram when the only opinion that’s ever mattered is mine and IDGAF what even I think? Here’s my point. TL;DR: I’ve spent polar vortex winter nights homeless. It’s not fun. Fucking sucks like suckling chucklefucks. If you follow my writing, you probably already knew this. If you’re new to this, spoiler alert: the hero survives, saves the day, shares his story, falls in love, and saves your life in the process. What I’m trying to say has been forgotten. Sike. Forgive, never forget. Fuck you BombCyclone. Thinking of every living creature—man, woman, child, flora, fauna, and my darling angel Mother Earth—braving, enduring, suffering, the fate and fury of extreme weather, natural disaster, and climate change. Keep warm, take care, stay safe. Love you. Special shoutout to my formerly frostbitten testicles once upon a time real quick. Gang.

Few friendships as valued as this one, fewer still longer lived. This is my brother Misha. I met him on the first day of ninth grade, when I was 14 years, 2 months, and 1 day old, at our alma mater @stuyvesanthighschool, and we’ve been homies ever since. I mention this exact age for a special reason. Our friendship has recently passed the halfway point of my life (14 years, 4 months and 1 day) meaning we’ve been friends for the greater, better half, of my life. We’ve been through so much. He said it best recently: we are just evolving and getting wiser and better and learning from the pain. Couldn’t agree more or put it better myself. More love and more life. Thanks for all the memories, side-splitting laughter, advice, wisdom, and friendship. Thank you for your generosity of spirit, infectious ambition, and tremendous empathy. Love you to the moon and back @mishawashere1.

The only thing I despise about cold weather is black iced sidewalks. Slowing down my usual New Yorker breakneck walking pace to avoid slipping, breaking my hip and ending up on some dumbass tourist’s Snapchat story is cramping my style too much for comfort. Special shout out to my $7 two-year-old @Walmart slip-ons (aka the Struggle Suede 11s) for having been through everything with me these past couple years, from penthouse hotel suites to homelessness and all the way back. Why not buy/wear appropriately priced footwear? Well for one, I left my Timbs in Texas, and two, I’m cheap af these days, investing every penny I can into my business (not Bitcoin shotsfired). The ghost of Steve Jobs is dabbing somewhere one time in approval. benji lazysunday OOTD RNS YOLO

I'm so bright, I close my eyes and I can still see light//I'm so live, you motherfuckers gotta kill me twice//Man, I promise I'm murdering classics, paying my homage//The fifteenth of the month, and I'm just now paying Mohammed//Said the rent's due on the first//but he don't know the shit I been through, and it hurts//Can't wait to blow//Yeah, I think about heaven sometimes, can't wait to go//If it's real, will I even get in, I ain't for sure//'Cause I've been sinning//Getting bent, it's been a minute since I been up in a church//Only time is when my friend up in a hearse//Lord, I'm praying for my Mama//I just went up in her purse//Not to steal//All I saw was some bills, and not a dollar in sight//It’s time she lived a more desirable life//I'm chasing money//And dreams, only God got the means to take it from me//I scheme while I'm riding through Queens//I ain't no dummy//A Jackson Heights repper 'til the day that I'm gone//Nigga get your weight up all the way up if you hating on me//Cause boy I might pray, but ain't no preying on me//I'm hot like Satan just laying on me//So when you get to hell, you can say you know me//I said I might pray, but ain't no preying on me//And when you get to hell, say you know me.

4️⃣ This weekend marks four years since the first serious panic attack and suicide attempt hospitalized me, and began the journey through multiple stints of inpatient, outpatient--and on my part, impatient--psychiatric rehabilitation, medication, therapy, the whole nine yards and then some. Glory, praise, thanks to God alone. Eternal debt, gratitude, and love to my darling angel parents, sister, brother-in-law, nephews, and cousin for sticking by my side these past four years. It hasn't been smooth sailing since. Don't get it twisted. You don't just wake up in the psych ward, chug down some pills, talk about your feelings, and walk out a new person. And what happened on 8/11/13 wasn't even the worst thing that ever happened to me. I've been assaulted, detained, evicted, homeless, sued, and through progressively lower depths of my own personal hell since. Like Tupac said, "no man alive has witnessed struggles I survived". IDGAF about any of that now though. That's not what this, today, and every tomorrow is about. It's about survival. I'm still alive. Never felt more life. It's a new season. I'm still breathing. BrownBeardoSeason 👳🏾🕺🏾🤴🏾 ➖ I'm writing much more about my thoughts on this weekend, the last four years, etc., and will publish a story on @medium soon. ➖ You'll know the *whole* story when I publish my debut book, a memoir titled Brown Grass later this summer. It's my life's greatest work. It's a story of survival. Writing it saved my life. I hope, pray and wish it saves many more lives. ➖ Lastly, and this is extremely important to me: ➖ If you or anybody you know ever feels crisis: please feel free to call/text/email/message me, 24/7/365. Here's my contact information below: ➖ (917) 982-3849 (yes, that's my real number) fzafar1 @gmail.com (yes, that's my real email) ➖ Alternatively, you can always reach out 24/7/365: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800) 273-TALK (8255) or anybody you know/trust, as soon as possible. ➖ It gets better. Please believe me about this. I believe this. I know this. I promise you this. ➖ I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. ❤️ ➖ HowToSaveALife ItsOkayToTalk MentalHealth SuicidePrevention

PSA: to all fuckboys -- I'm y'all's daddy. Stop fronting like ya boy ain't teach y'all everything from how to dress to how to carry yourself as 100% Great Gatsbys, 100% gangsters, and 100% gentlemen, how to ball on a budget and how to cop the freshest $1000 Kiton shirts. I got a GQ subscription older than most of y'all. I been sonnin' y'all since back in the day back in the day, way before hashtags. Back when fitteds and AF1s was poppin'. Back when Gasolina was bumpin'. Back when I ain't have two pennies to rub together but fuck it you couldn't tell from my hustle and my fit if y'all looked fresh to death then I was certified dearly departed deceased. I'm the pied piper of this style shit ask about me. Don't get it twisted. This is fucking God body. The Don Dada of the suit and tie game for real. I am your OG and I will be respected as such. Never let me catch you slipping. Bow down kiss the ring. If you don't remember anything else from this rant take this to heart: a healthy me is a deadly me. Now hop off.

Humbled, happy and honored to participate in the IOM - UN Migration Agency's ongoing international "I Am A Migrant" viral social media campaign. This one's for you, Ami, Abu, Naanajaan, Naanima, and Shams Mamoo. As the son of Pakistani immigrants and grandson of Indian Muhajirs who came to Karachi during the 1947 Partition, born and raised in Little India (JACKSON HEIGHTS!), sharing my story was intimately impactful. My name's SF Ali. I'm Pakistani American. I'm proud of my heritage. I carry it with me everywhere I go... I am a migrant. Special thanks to my dear friend, the amazing and talented Hajer Naili for including me in this campaign. Follow her important field work and projects. For each like, comment and share of this picture, I'll donate $1 to the Committee to Protect Journalists, and match my own donation.

Invited to keynote at the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission's upcoming Nonviolence Youth Summit. Previous keynotes include civil rights icons Dr. Bernard Lafayette, Dr. Annie McDaniel Abrams, Arun Manilal Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi's grandson), Martin Luther King III (MLK's eldest child), and Tracy Martin (Trayvon Martin's father); former US Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders; Basketball Hall of Famer Coach Nolan Richardson; actors Marlon Wayans and Kel Mitchell. As a mental health activist, suicide prevention advocate and youth mentor, this means so much to me. Humbled and honored. Speechless. Unreal. AMLKC
