It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years.
The man Frank is involved with has a girlfriend, yet is entangled in this affair with him. dream hampton (she writes her name in lower cases), is a hip hop journalist and culture critic, perhaps most known as the co-author of Jay Z’s “Decoded”. In an open letter she penned about Frank’s statement, she opines that “this is the only truly tragic thing about your letter.” She adds that the “tender irony” is that Frank’s “letter is to a boy who was unable to return your love until years later because he was living a lie.” dream hampton sent this open letter to Jay Z, who in a show of support, immediately uploaded the letter in its entirety on his website LifeAndTimes.
