"My New York Stories"

No Comments »

So I'm at a bar, sitting at a table with my homies people in the East Village. A girl at the end of the table is having a conversation with a few others and I overhear, "doing cocaine for breakfast is so dark" everyone is like yooooo chill. They look around and see my blank stare looking up from my phone and everyone starts laughing!

Troubled Joy

No Comments »



Shared pain, shared joy, same weekend. My brothers are going through it. 

The gain, the letting go, women have them in....shambles, heartbreak, or reveling in the essence of love while I'm in between them, single, sharing both pain & joy wondering if it is better to have loved & have love lost or to not have loved at all? 

Luck of the draw I guess. Part of the process I suppose. Love comes, love goes, who's to say it sticks around. Questions that puzzled philosophers I suppose.

Distinct Life: Reebok GL 6000

Reebok's are usually slept on but these Distinct Life GL 6000 are proper. The navy & gum bottom combo is a really solid look. Great collaboration with the Distinct Life brand hailing out of Detroit.

Mr. Jackson: Sometimes (Video)

No Comments »



It all started as a hum in a makeshift studio in his Harlem apartment. I remember just asking him to repeat the hum. Then words were added, a beat was curated, & a song was made. This song, happens to be one of my favorites from Mr. Jackson & the Gourmet Family simply because I was a part of it. It all didn't happen in one night. When I heard the finished product, I was thoroughly impressed, excited, & satisfied.

"Sometimes, life's a nightmare, sometimes, I don't even care ' n ' sometimes, I watch the people stare, but my mind, it ain't even there".

If you knew Alex aka Mr. Jackson, you would know that this song makes perfect sense. He is a perfectionist who fusses over the details, feels, & emotions of things. He often sits in dark rooms, attends movies, restaurants,& bars alone. At the same time very family oriented. A strange dynamic, but that is him.

Creating the visuals for the song, he summoned all his boys to take part in the short film. It's hard to call it a music video, because it is so much more than that. Even I have a little cameo. This may just be the video that lands me an acting gig (just kidding)or not.

Pop Up Flea NYC (Photo Recap)

No Comments »



The Pop Up Flea, aka heaven for menswear enthusiasts made it's way to New York City. Considering the Pop Up Flea only pops up one weekend at a time, in different cities across the nation, I was pleased to have been in attendance. There were many booths with quality known & up & coming brands alongside their goods.

The flea is set up similar to a tradeshow except, it is open to the public and patrons were able to purchase these goods. The foot traffic was incredible. People from all over were one step shy of scouring. It was the best place to get your hands on leather goods, knitwear, footwear, & other goodies you can imagine. I made my way to the flea both Saturday & Sunday. Went back Sunday because there was an LL Bean vest I didn't purchase while I was there Saturday. Of course when I got there Sunday, there weren't any in my size.

It's a you snooze you lose world over at the flea. Still glad I was there tho. The inspiration was food for the soul.

Sampha - Happens

With a totally unique sound Sampha blessed us with a hit. Well, a hit for me at least. This song is a song I repeat time & time again. Quality music in the world of trap & hard beats is hard to come by. Even all r&b tunes sound the same. For me, lyrics still matter. Instruments still matter. Content & composition still matters. Sampha is an artist who is true to this. His music comes from an honest place. You can hear it in his voice.
