As I was talking with my beautiful kids about where they are coming from; where my woman and I are coming from (Haïti and Poland, Congo for her), I realised later (while cooking stew) how much we are influenced by our environment. I speak french with a horrible Brussels accent, I eat stews as well as Congolese food. And Brussels is most definetly my hometown even if I feel comfortable with being somewhere else. I may feel at home in Port Au Prince (Haïti), in Cape town or in Switzerland. But coming home is synonymous with Brussels.

So, I thought about this awesome track by 3rd Bass, that infamous and very underrated hip hop band from NYC. Because, yes, we are the products of our environment.
