High Codes Podcast

Few weeks ago I was invited onto the High Codes Podcast to speak on the brand, my influences, and everything GoonMilk. Speaking on everything from how I came up with the name to my latest drop, Bottle Girls Swimwear, and much more. I really love Podcasts and speaking about my passions, but hearing my voice and the most annoying “Uhh’s” and “Its Like…” in-between each word keeps me from doing these interviews on the regular. I love giving the listeners insight on the struggles of entrepreneurship but always encourage people to start a business of their own and experience the ups and downs for theirselves. I tend to ramble on though…

Drip or Drown

Glizzy Gang Tour Photographer Jordan Barnes shooting the Behind the Scenes footage of the Drip or Drown Tour with Gunna, Shy Glizzy, and Nav in New Jersey, April 25th, 2019.

Got the chance to assist my bro Jordan (@OffGarde) while shooting the Drip or Drown tour up in New Jersey. We drove up from DC and made it just in time to catch a backstage security scuffle and gunna’s performance with Nav. Jordan got a crazy shot of Nav flexxin backstage, we watched the rest of the show and headed back home same night. Definitely was fun as shit lol and Im getting the hang of this GOPro7!

Extremely proud of Jordan and all he’s accomplished with photography and his overall growth over the years. Ive known Jordan since I was maybe 8 or 9 and though we call ourselves cousins we are not he just grew up around my cousin’s neighborhood. Blood wouldn’t make no difference thats my dog we been through some wild times together and really got it out the mud in both our respected fields, so getting to record him in his element was dope as shit. Check out some of his work on his Instagram @OffGarde.

They can’t keep taking all the heroes... the marathon continues rest easy big homie @nipseyhussle you were the biggest influence in My life when it came to business, respect, ownership, health and wealth, as well as just being a stand up man for your family and friends. The music was a byproduct of how real and genuine you were. You inspired a lot of change in this generation and for those to come. Glad I got to see you and visit the shop before they hated. I’m sickened by this but can’t help but use this as motivation to never give up chasing my dreams and helping my people. #RIPNipsey Still cant believe this shit.

When You came to DC I was there, when I flew to Cali I visited the same exact spot you were shot at. I remember the feeling when I pulled up eating leftover Roscoe’s. The feeling of “Man I could do this shit!” You gave a black man 50,000 miles away hope, a blueprint, a way of life different from what I saw every other day. Seeing you incorporate technology into Streetwear was genius to me so much that I even created a QR code logo for my brand. When you said Cryptocurrency was the next big thing Indownloaded every bitcoin app I could find. Seeing you create STEM programs for underprivileged kids influenced my work with kids teaching them how to print and press. On days I felt I couldn’t make it thru I played “I don’t Stress” on repeat and conquered every obstacle in my way.

When I felt like “fuck these bitches they ain’t worth my time” I would see pics of you and Lauren and instantly redirect my energy to wanting that life and a partner like you had. Every verse you spit was timeless and even though you was talkin gang shit it resonated cause it was real shit wrapped all around it. They robbed you of the Album of the Year cause Grammy nominated isn’t good enough for how great the Victory Lap really was. This is hard. I can’t see myself connect with as many artists as I connected with you. You were a legend way before Victory Lap and to have grown into a man in the prime of your rap career was no cooincedence you shaped my life something crazy with your music and videos and influence. Rest in Power Ermias Davidson Asghedom.

Souljerrrr

Soulja Boy has been on a rampage since 2019 began. Claiming he’s had the biggest comeback of 2018 of any rapper, which i can’t really call because I personally thought Meek had the best 2018. But nonetheless Soulja aka Big Draco has been dropping facts about his many influences in the rap game. Including Drake biting bars as well as calling Ariana Grande a thief, and putting on Chicago rapper Famous Dex, with receipts to match. In amidst of all this media attention is the looming question…

What did soulja do to that Gucci headband to make it so damn loose!?!?

Anyways Big Draco auctioned it off live on IG today… 12K bids smh
