Tricky - May 31st

Today, I'll be closing out National Foster Care month with one last amazing alumni. For me, this was a personal commitment to increase the visibility of these very successful, familiar people's childhood stories. I hope it has made you smile, say 'wow', surprised or touched you and above all gave you a glimpse of their resilience, strength and tenderness. You can be the difference in the life of a foster child.

Tricky --- called "The Majesty of Trip Hop", much to his chagrin. He is an English musician, actor and producer, once called the most brilliantly enigmatic pop figure, with his steely, sung-whispered lyrics. Tricky has mastered a musical fusion of rock and hip hop, high art and pop culture. Tricky was born to a Jamaican father and a mixed-race Anglo-Ghanaian mother. His father left the family before he was born, and his mother was a poet, who committed suicide when Tricky was only four. He spent his youth in the care of his grandmother and on the rugged streets of Bristol, England. His tenth studio album, "False Idols" was released this week on his own label, a subsidiary of Island Records.
