Me and @jadapinkettsmith clean up NICE! We flew down to ATL to be with @tylerperry as he opened the FIRST and largest Black-Owned studio. This moment is monumental in so many ways! And a sound stage in my name… ? I’m inspired and honored to be part of something of this magnitude. @tylerperrystudios ?: @westbrook @jas
