Recent Pick Ups!

Today, I picked up "Life Is Good" by Nas and "channelORANGE" by Frank Ocean. Support real music and go grab these albums! By grab, I mean, GO BUY!

It's W.A.R.

I was invited out to Justin Smith's photography showcase labeled "W.A.R." which hosted his recent photography. The venue was amazing, the event was astounding, and exactly what Phoenix needed. Ashton-Alexander does another fantastic job of capturing the energy of the event. Great work to all parties involved!

"Taking place in a charming, elegant room at The Ice House in Phoenix, Justin Smith's W.A.R. showcase stayed true to its setting. The handsomely framed prints captured moments from his time in NYC, LA, New Orleans, Vegas and AZ. The event was indeed a photography showcase but it was also a celebration of a newly completed Bachelor's degree for Justin as well as an introduction to the world as an artist." -

Make sure to check out all the recent projects from Ashton-Alexander HERE

The Pulse Finale!

I was invited last night (or early morning) to join Yaya for her last show of the Pulse. She's been doing the show for over 3 years and has really set a platform for true MC's to have a place for their music to be herd. It was a special night for her, packed with people who really care about her work, but more importantly about her as a person. Everyone traded stories about how the pulse had some role in their life. The part of the night I will never forget is when Talib Kweli called in to wish Yaya the best of luck and gave his thanks for allowing his music to be played in Phoenix. Everyone in the studio had what we called the "Shut ALL the way up" moment. The night ended with a bunch of great stories, hugs, and laughs. Yaya will be headed to Reno for the new chapter in her life. As much as it hurts to see her go, everyone is happy for her next step. Wishing you the best Yaya!

Recent Pick Up: Bape x Undftd

I haven't picked up any new Bape since the Bape x OF collaboration awhile back but I had to pick this joint up. Big thanks to Slim and Dairy for this tee!

Happy Birthday Slimeeee!

Yesterday, was the homie J's birthday. We hit Blue Hound in downtown Phoenix for dinner. It was my first time checking the place out but I definitely intend to go back, the venue is great to say the least. The homie J has been holding me down for as long as I've known him and one of the few people that really understands what it is to be a good friend and person in general. It was good to have all our people in the building for the dinner. Wishing the homie J another year of great health and success!

Maximize Your 24 Hours.

One of the best things I've started to do more recently is get off my ass and be active. It's been a great release for me and has done wonders for my state of mind. I spend much of my free time in this area just thinking and clearing my mind. Since working in the healthcare industry, I've learned a lot about the importance of staying active. My good friend Lady La really inspired me to get out there and maximize my 24 hours. I thought I'd pass the knowledge on to the people who read my blog because it's one of the best things I've started to do in my adult life.
