May/24/10 09:27 AM Filed in: Darryl SharptonI don’t know if you were aware of this, but you’ve got a pretty famous uncle. How close were you to the Rev. Al Sharpton growing up, and what kind of influence has he had on you?“Growing up, people always were like, ‘Are you related to Al Sharpton? Are you related to Al Sharpton?’ My parents told me I was, and later on in my life, I actually got to see him a lot more because he traveled a lot and came down to Miami. So I would see him when he came down and we would speak, and he would tell me that he was very proud of me and that he loves me. I met the whole family, and I stay with them whenever I go to New York. He’s been a great guy, a great role model, and obviously he’s very, very famous in many circles, so he’s definitely been a good role model for me, as have my dad and my mom and everybody that’s in my family. I’m just very appreciative of my family as a whole and for them always being there for me.”
