Growing up in Miami Gardens taught me a lot. I learned at an early age to overcome obstacles and challenges that no child should ever have to face. Crime, Drugs, Illiteracy, and Hopelessness could have stopped me from achieving my goals but I was determined to do something different. After my dream to be a star athlete came to a quick end I was faced with a tough decision, was I going to take the road of despair that many of my peers had traveled or was I going to push myself to achieve greatness?
I thank you Miami for your love and support as I celebrate the success of Slip N Slide Records with artists such as Trina, Trick Daddy, Plies, Rick Ross, DJ Khalid, and Pitbull who changed the landscape of music across the world. We launched the TLF (Ted Lucas Foundation) 4 years ago and I am determined to teach young people from my community, that change is possible. I am extremely excited to open the TLF Learning Center in partnership with the City of Miami Gardens in 2019.
