In the fourth installment of his video collage series, “The Gifted,” Wale serves up plenty of inspiration. He showcases people who rose to the top of their fields. He starts off with Basquiat, the one-time homeless artist whose painting fetched over $43 million after his death. On to the tennis courts, Arthur Ashe and Serena Williams are highlighted. Astronauts, poets, writers and rappers all have one thing in common here: they are gifted and they are excellent at their craft.
“All the progress that human beings have made on this old earth of ours grew out of dreams. That is why it is wise, I should think, to hold fast to dreams. For if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” – Langston Hughes
