“With all of those relationships that I had, its like, I can’t judge that man, you know,” Cannon said. “I don’t know what demons he’s struggling with. I don’t know what he’s going through, but it’s not my job to throw that person away. So hopefully, you know, with building the counsel culture community and creating professionals, doctors, and clinicians that can say, you know, we all have problems.

“We are all dealing with mental wellness. We’re all dealing with issues of trauma, and how do we deal with that specifically as black men.”


Cannon also pulled back the curtain on his household, “I had to have that conversation with my daughter about like, ‘Dad, that’s your friend, right,’ and I’m like, ‘Okay, so I know him. I’ve befriended him. I don’t know that person, and I’ve never seen that person and I cannot be friends with a person who does that, but all we can do is pray for him.'”
