Good Stuff Epps

It’s rare that I leave reviews or comments on Podcasts regarding certain topics, but I personally know Anthony and everything he was saying was facts!! I was with him in the gym I was with him in the playground, I was with him hanging out in the apartment buildings, I was at his grandma house daily. I was with him sharpening his skills at Saint Helenas, so I know the brother speaks the truth about all that he went through. I’m proud of the young man he has turned into and I wish him all the blessings in the world.. Keep going there is more in store 💯
