INSTILLING FAMILY VALUES

Being a man who only saw his father twice and grew up with his mom, aunt, and grandparents, he was raised with a spiritual foundation that taught the importance of a prayerful life which his wife keeps. He said:

"I grew up with a spiritual foundation. I still have a faith but I don't go to church much as I leave that up to my wife, LaTanya..."

In addition, getting good grades, a strong will, and profitable work ethics were values the icon and his wife shared when they met in college, and it was all passed on to their daughter.
