A Diary of Silver linings: why I’m a creator you follow

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

Last year I wrote a book, not many people know I have a book, but I told myself henceforth I will share it so whoever needs it can see it. I have a growing voice in fashion and much of my writing is not fashion related, obscure to me but that’s the world I live in and how my life is.

Melancholy Maelstrom, Available on All platforms

Here’s my first book, I want to say, this book is unlike any of my other works, born of pain an anguish of a failed system I hope to change. Nothing to do with fashion and more to do with real life. I wrote this book before all of the troubles of last year and how there’s a silver lining to everything. Once you see it, seize it capture it and Burst it Open so the light it brings shines on everyone in your space. That’s what this book is about

Last year my people were dying on the streets, there were so many points where I saw the pain and suffering reflected in the people in the work I produced. I decided not to share my work because my words in the moment meant more than the words I had written, even though it was months apart.

There were times when I was asked in the moment to make fashion videos, I had created a show that was unlike any before it and meant so much to the community who were exposed to it. My spirit really said I should not do no productions because people in the streets, me being in the streets was more important than fashion.

I am not for your consumption

Janelle Monet, via Taurus

There were moments that were necessary for others to escape that I could provide but it wasn’t in me to help people escape, I needed to live in the moment as a human just like everyone else and that needed to be respected because there were voices that I needed to listen to and I needed others to hear.

In America from Kobe and Pop Smoke, to Ahmaud Arbery, to the Lekki tollgate massacre 2020 did not let up I made the decision to live in it. Covid made sure we stewed in it, how could a man like me, raised by the people create an escape. I didn’t see it, if it was my job to do that I’m sorry.

My business took a hit because of and now I’m here again asking for peace, patience and guidance to work up again in the eyes of the people from this site and those that follow me.

My existence is not for your consumption, my work is. We are tied, but I was tired. I’m due to show up and show everyone again, why I am a creator you follow

Culture And Camaraderie Podcast: PRODUCING HQ ART(@camaraderiepod)

Hello Comrades,

MAILING LIST

This is the coming of the newest instalment of the Culture and Camaraderie podcast with  myself ARAH of @NYTypical & Tyler @Lax_Era.. On this weeks most thought provoking introspective industrious creative discussion:
Kobe tragic death left me in mourning and had me deciding There is no way any of this can be stopped not on my watch anyway. Performing at the best producing the highest quality and creating the best art plausible – as a new artist its such a trial.
Leading us to the conversation about music and how hits are made and the greatness behind them, Tyler questions my ear for the last time and we review Russ’ Album.
Russ Vs Andrew Schulz and the real difference between a true ally and someone who is steady going to bat for whiteness. Speaking about White supremacy I wonder why on earth Coronavirus is a bigger deal than when Brexit happened

MAMBA OUT

we dealt with the Death of Kobe Bryant the only way I know how. Talking about performance and what we can learn from his life and how much he believed in himself and I shouldn’t be ashamed to either. Causing Me to make my resolution!!!!

Life isn’t certain Death is so live life as if you’re dying because there is an urgency for you to do something productive . If that doesn’t work I don’t know for you…

WHAT IS A HIT/New Sound of Music

After our J HUS conversation I spent so much time listening to it so much that it solidified how I felt. We then go through to Review russ’ album Tyler didn’t take to it – so I had to ask him a series of questions pertaining to how he makes music , trying to understand what is there is to not get? Then Tyler tries to rebuttal by putting me in the hottest but it backfires in a heated debate.

THE ELITES CONTROL Y’ALL

I wonder why corona virus is bigger than Brexit or the American elections, I find it annoying that things go to the elites plan and the easily controlled stay controlled and that’s exactly how they like it.

Near the end of the podcast I had to get Rea serious about all the people qq

What is the point in dealing with

Culture And Camaraderie Podcast: NEW MUSIC REVIEW J HUS 070 Shake & Kano Doc (@camaraderiepod)

Hello Comrades,

MAILING LIST

This is the coming of the newest instalment of the Culture and Camaraderie podcast with  myself ARAH of @NYTypical & Tyler @Lax_Era.. On this weeks most thought provoking introspective industrious creative discussion:
We introduced visuals on Youtube at Culture And Camaraderie. Then we get into All the albums as well as a continuation of our Kano conversation as the documentary for ‘Hoodies all Summer” Dropped… J Hus New Album and 070 Shake as well as a deep discussion about good music.

ALL THE MUSIC FROM THE CULTURE

JHUS KANO & 070 SHAKE

We From the Coast to the Local we speak about new music of J Hus and 070 Shake. but the controversy continues as people say UK music is is lesser and J Has new album is trash making us have a discussion about GOOD music and I believe its not subjective there is good  and Classic is consensus

Not all ideas are qualified, there’s not a thing people say where we can believe their ideas depending on who they are, the people in question who happen to be artist it don’t do as well as j Hus put many in a predicament when talking about their music vs  Hus’ now should we scrutinise artists in growth spaces? the conversation ensues
