OYOS: A Year Completed, I love Life, God has given me more — The Movement of My Dial

Peace Blessings and Salutations

We go again,

The past year has been full of pain, terror anguish and anxiety. My success has also been incompatible to any other year prior. This is what I learned from it, don’t let what is done to you cripple you, don’t dwell on the defeat of a comrade or the loss of a loved one too long. The spirit of greatness stays and always remember the good as it is and don’t have it tainted jade or glazed over by the the spirit of nostalgia. What’s good is good and what’s done is done.

My life has been littered with pain and in my early 20’s it crippled me. I had to cut out the tumour cauterise the wound and live to fight another day, last year I decided I was ready to fight again and in that I have come by some amazing things

My writing is beloved and exalted by those who read it the message is conveyed and they understand my theories and what I have to offer the world. It’s quite astounding

I have performed at the highest level I ever have doing anything on any level. The only thing that comes close is my world building but even that doesn’t come close to the 150 articles I’ve wrote this year

This year I became an upstanding member of my community offering my help to those that need it and helped the kids that needed the information I had to offer.

My peers see what I do with astonishment and pizzazz, they beckon me to be a co-producer on the productions due to the skill and execution I use on my productions.

Ive created a fair few writing brands under the banner of NYTYPICAL along with the critically regarded Sickle Cell Companion used in hospitals by nurses.

So to say, I am an upstanding member of my community doing everything I can in my power I could do, even on 60% strength on average. That is something I can be proud of. I can do that much service as a whole while serving my career.

This is what I want to continue in more ways furthering to heights no one knew were possible.

This is the Movement of my Dial

Hello Comrades,

In this weeks podcast we join Damilare @nytypical & Tyler Edwards @Lax_Era in another exploration of creativity, speaking about finances what is a creative vs an artist. Who do the best jobs really go to and what we has to learn for us to get from where we were go where we are now.

The thesis discussion comes to a close as it’s something that is needed to be told wholly rather than in bits and pieces. Which doesn’t mean there haven’t been handsome topics to discuss. Tyler stands as a living breathing testimony for its effectiveness

The arrogance of the bachelor – degrees of separation

We go again,

I’m really conscious and that makes me annoyed by certain things that aren’t conscious something I have to deal with. This is my therapy though, to write about things in hopes it becomes a learning experience for my peers and mentees

This is not the same for my contemporaries, some of my peers are the most educated (by schools) in their family so they have an arrogance about themselves that they align with what they think their position in my community should be.

Me being the man that I am take it seriously when people are educated and I’m proud of my brothers sister and others for making it out.

The Folly

A folly I’ve seen is they believe their “expertise” or subtle learnedness or position in a company or rank of their university is equal to status and thinking that we must listen to them. No. This is the downfall of so many educated people, the entitlement of the people just like those with wealth feel like they’re entitled to the people eat because they made some money.

The folly of my folk who believe that one degree can define their status or allow them access to conversations that don’t concern them they have no information on or only have a surface level interaction with the subject. It’s okay to say you know nothing.

The folly of the newly educated generation is to want to seem like they need to answer for everything or have the answers for subjects that their brain does not compute or relate to. It breeds pedantic behaviour, we don’t need that it’s okay to say you don’t know something.

Fear of the unknown

That’s what people are afraid of to say you are unaware when you are one of the few with a degree. A degree means you learned how to pick up specialised knowledge through a system, you can repeat that but if you haven’t took the time to relearn your specific input on that subject is unnecessary.

It makes me uncomfortable to call out my learned peers on being unlearned when that’s what they pride themselves in. It’s a must though because misinformation is a scary ethic that was used against us to make us think we were lesser so in this Renaissance we must leave it behind if we are to have a better future.


Editors Note

In life there are checks and balances that need to be taken into account when disseminating certain information. The ramifications can be dire for sharing information that’s false or malicious or besmirching so one (like me) takes steps to ensure my opinion is posed as opinion, I am fallible and my statements of facts are just that facts.

Empirical evidence I share is separate to my opinions and philosophy the two can be exclusive but they may also be mixed and I make a conscious effort to align my philosophy to evidence. Which means I do research heavily on topics and edit myself where I can and input facts where the details are needed

Yeezy and Big Baller Brand collaborate for the Culture — The Triple B Yeezy — Lavar And Kanye Wests creation

We go Again

I see this so clearly in my minds eye as the right thing to do. On the occasion where you can have two people who garner global attention such as Lavar Ball and Kanye West you expect something to come from them as a producer.

I cannot see one reason why they should not have a collaboration, the Yeezy Brands superior Technology and Big Baller Brands in with basketball culture and creating an alternative space where student athletes can practice their skills and get paid for it having a Triple B Yeezy basketball shoe on The Ball Brothers feet is an independent businessman’s dream. The only thing that can get in the way is the fact Yeezy is an Adidas Company and BBB can be considered a competitor, with Kanye’s non compete looking the way it does could make the sneaker non Existent.

Let’s make the speculation though, if we were to guess when Kanye West and Lavar Ball would collab I would say on LaMelo Ball’s draft day. Seems far enough out that Kanye would be in talks of signing a new contract LaMelo will have enough buzz round Melo as a star* in College will be high and he’s practically guaranteed he will be a top 15 pick off merit.

That’s when you strike while the iron is white hot, right now the frenzy for yeezy has died down the generation is grown up out of college and working they don’t have time to be hyping Yeezy. But! This can all be rectified with one great collaboration — grabbing a whole new generation who Respect Melo as one of their greats — this is what they were meant for to Turbo charge an already great Brand that runs on superior design and technology it will only Advance the cause if you get the future Jordan of the League. Not comparing Melo to Jordan in skill but in attention and respect for his skill he’s garnering he’s up there with the Greats of his generation.

If LaMelo were to by some miraculous reason play with his brothers the stars will truly align with Kanye and Lavar this time. Where technology will meet hype in the ultimate cross over of sportsmanship and genius.

In writing this I have gathered an even greater respect for the collaboration if it happens and want nothing more than for it to happen.For hip hop, for basketball, for black culture for independent business people everywhere who want to build their own thing. To show them collaborating across and not up can work just as well.

April — Springtime of The Rookie. My top Artist of the past year who have great fashion businesses

Now it’s officially SpringTime

From now to May the cherry blossoms will bloom farmers will be planting seeds for crops trees will green; Lent & the rebirth of Christ in the Christian faith and the new tax year will begin.

I always like to contextualise things in the manner of the seasons because in living in England they are the most essential part of how we live life and to be honest it makes writing for me more fun.

As a story teller first I love to share tales with lessons involved create links and metaphors and multisyllabic sentences that sound nice. Once more I do all of this with real life examples which brings me to #SpringtimeOfTheRookie.

Where this is the springTime of my generation I reserve this time as a time to talk about creatives taking things to the next level – who also happen to be my generation – the stories I will tell in coming weeks may relate to you and you may learn something or have at least one takeaway. My real hope is you delve deeper into learning who some of these people are and related to.

OYOS: Hoodish – Culture on my block #GrindersMode.

We go again,

Everyone knows the flow and style where I’m from and what it’s about when you’re living there.

But I’ve noticed so much of the philosophy isn’t spoken about, so I’m going to give it a crack.

Hoodish is the philosophy of the road mainly it’s about work-rate and perseverance. Mainly because that’s all you saw, before laws were put in place about public overtime hours all I saw was my parents working 7 days a week to put food in our bellies and clothes on our back. That’s got us all we have and all we could get because more hours working meant more bric-à-brac.

That being the philosophy where I grew up where your first consignment was selling chocolates on a playground and if you were were about that life, you’d turn that into a Q and so forth.

Credibility was earned on hard work. Where I’m from you put your hoodie on and keep your head low and get to doin whatever you’re doing to rub pence together to make a pound.

So when I’m feeling HOODISH I get that grinders itch, that no matter what I’m doing I feel I need to do more to get more.

That’s the ethics of where I was raised and when I apply it to this life I’m living now it can mean much more than what it was worth before.
