Bo's goals were to own a business, I don’t know what kind really because he scrambled and changed his goals so often, but he wanted to be his own boss. He was ambitious and generous, he would give you his last dollar if he could and make sure he didn’t sleep until he made it back. By that I mean his ambition would push him to never go without and always find ways to make income. Success and getting away from Boston was what he recently spoke on before passing. He wanted to move to Atlanta to get a fresh start. He felt like Boston was becoming too negative.  He always said once he could save enough to leave that he would. Things he spoke on most about it being so negative was the violence, whether it was citizen versus citizen or even police against citizens. He was very passionate about police brutality and being harassed by police for no reason. Also, constantly being judged about past mistakes and decisions, his mind was set on progression.

 

Bo was a talented rapper; he was recording new music days before passing and spoke about taking his music more serious. Besides loving music he loved to eat! He was by far the greediest person I have ever known. He would come to my house and run straight to the fridge. I recall a few times he would call me to come over when he showed up with groceries and cooked full meals. They were always good too, surprisingly.

 

Bo was definitely a “mama’s boy”; he would speak so highly about his mom and her work ethics. He wanted to make sure that she was taken care of and didn’t want her to be working hard. He was very family oriented and put them first in every situation. The women of the family were his focus from his “Gma” to his little sister, Zyariah. His giving and generous attitude was with anyone he cared about. I remember for my birthday we got a table at a club for $900, Bo put up his last $500 and said “Happy Birthday”. I told him he didn’t have to and kept trying to talk him out of it, but he said “Nah, you need to have a good time!” I miss my brother more than anything. He was definitely one of a kind and made an impact on my life.
