Ear to the Streets

This past week or so Ive been playing nothing but Da Baby “Blank Blank” mixtape.


The Charlotte North Carolina Rapper, Notorious for shooting a man in the middle of a grocery store is gaining much traction across the nation with his debut mixtape. Self proclaimed realest rapper alive whom lives out everything he spits. Just last week he was seen knocking out a man accused of trying Da Baby during a performance. Nonetheless his flow and relatable gutter content is undeniable. Looking forward to hearing more from this Artist in the near future.


Speaking of Future he just dropped his latest album ‘The Wizrd” and Fire Marshall Future did not disappoint. Projected to sell 130k first week, Super Future is back on top off the rap game with heartfelt trap bangers and addictive drug talk. Go download both of these projects!


September 1st came faster than I thought. August was a busy month and a blur. From moving into the new house, to my 30th Birthday, to the Back To School Drive, I’ve had zero time to sit down and connect with you, my Blog readers. Lets catch up...


Business is... Business, still an underground king riding dirty. No consigns, no investors, no celebrity clout. Just direct-to-consumer sales from the site and a pop up every now and again. Slow grinding til I can finesse more overhead capital to fund more projects and ideas. I’m styling more shoots and connecting with more and more people that love my style. Only thing i hate is how everyone is dictating what’s what by the likes and followers people have. Shit isn’t even high quality but if you have the following you can regurgitate that bullshit and get rich off it while real artists starve. Clout worse than crack in 2018. 


Mentally, I’ve never felt more in tune creatively and with the things I want for myself. I’m literally manifesting my dreams with positive affirmations and abiding by the law of attraction and the spiritual laws of circulation. You give positive vibrations and those vibrations return to you. Do good the more good comes to you. Also I’ve adversly gotten rid of all negative vibrations; things, or people that give me a feeling of uncertainty. I find that choosing and affirming the good in your life is much healthier for your mental than enduring things that you do not know are good or bad for you... consciously choose good feelings all the time. life’s to short for “on the fence” feelings. Well for me atleast. 


Socially, I’ve accepted my role in certain relationships/friendships as a Support role. We all want to be that lead role but I’ve learned to not force anything with anyone. And one of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn in life is that some people do not value you or your time the same as you do theirs. Sometimes the goalposts move as people grow. Sometimes you’re in a persons life to prepare them for their next lesson or to repeat the last. That’s with friends, lovers, and even family. So instead of me feeling at a lost in learning this lesson the hard way. I changed my perspective and see things as knowledge gained instead. Learning what I want and don’t want for myself and my future. Seeing what signs should have been red flags before, that I no longer overlook. Being more accountable for my shortcomings, communicating better, being mindful of my actions and the reactions they cause. I’m growing and failing forward. 

I’m proud of my gotdamn self and other than selling my Old School for drastically lower than what it was worth, Life is Good. 

Ain’t no complaints.



Exclusivity has become a scarcity. So I’m creating a line that you can’t buy. Flipping the script on some Jedi Mind Trick type shit. Nothings sacred anymore; streetwear’s no longer underground. Everyone’s hip and now the “Custom” boom is upon us. I’ve never seen so many custom shoe painters in my life until now. What used to be the “in crowd” is just the crowd now, everyone’s creating but following the same formula. I’m not one to chase trends or follow suit. so from now on G.O.O.N.S. get the money, Boooog run the Streets, and Avante's focused on the Art. Whether it be Clothing, Styling, Food, or a mere Thought... it can’t be bought. 

Lowkey I just miss having the feeling of knowing you had the only pair around. That being the sole reason most people i know get fly; to stand out from everyone else around. So until I get that feeling back I’ll be in the lab creating but Sorry, it’s Not For Sale.

P.S. That’s the name of the line “Not For Sale” and thats the logo but This will not be a GoonMilk line. A new GoonMilk line is dropping Soon! Stay tuned G.O.O.N.S. 



This weekend instead of hitting Howard's homecoming game against Morgan State [it was a blow out] me and the GANG hit the new Future of Sports exhibit down H st. The concepts and artist were dope and some even from the DMV area. Aside from the normal wear and tear of interactive exhibits, when you get there after the initial opening, everything was lit,

Even got some shots up with Jordan as he embarks on his @offGarde photography campaign. Check them out Below!


Few weeks ago I was looking thru my old designs and decided to make a new barcode logo that was a bit thicker and easier for my CAD cutter to print without mistake. in doing so I had a strike of lightning hit me with an idea so groundbreaking that it may change future fashion forever. 

The QR code.


Wearable Digital Marketing.

The code can be automatically picked up using your camera phone, snapchat, etc. and sends you directly to the GoonMilk site for instant access to the GOONS Shop, Blog and Contact info. Before, QR codes were used to streamline shopping in grocery stores but I believe in the right hands this innovation can change the landscape of fashion and how people share their looks, discounts, and overall knowledge of garments and retail businesses. 

Check out how it works below!
