RIP

Tribute to the Great

It really took me a while to even wrap my mind around doing a tribute video for Nip, still can’t believe he’s gone. But since his untimely death Ive been working tirelessly chasing my goals and really grinding 25/8 because I feel like thats what Nip would want niggas to do.

“Live yo life and grow, push the V12 to the pipe and smoke”

My guy went out like I never seen before… Sold out the Staple center in 20 minutes, 25 mile funeral precession, Mended gang relations almost immediately all over the world. Raised 200 million and gave 41,000 jobs to people of his community. you are the benchmark for stand up guys. I pray I can leave a legacy as large as yours big homie!

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.

GoonMilkTV vol.2 Grind Dont Stop!

The Grind Don’t stop as I continue to catch up on orders and lock in inside the Money Room! Also got to check out a new black owned restaurant and bar “Roy Boys” for my brother Roy’s Birthday (no relation).

Rest In Peace Cliff Dixon, we lost a good dude this week. it’s been tough seeing so many people my age losing their lives prematurely and so often. Tell your friends and family you love them as often as possible. You never know when it could be your last opportunity to do so. It has been a rough week for me personally, mentally and physically so keep me in your prayers as well. I’m Speaking positivity into my future endeavors and this upcoming week of Getting Out Of Negative Situations!

I took this photo of Cliff during a photoshoot back in 2016 while working with Black and Enspire Them, some of my best work.

Senseless Violence.

Another boy dead that looks just like me, and look just like you. Is it bad that Ive become more and more desensitized by these type of occurrences? Its almost become the norm, everyday theres a new video on social media of a black man killed or any color person for that matter being killed or Gone live on camera. Its wild... Shaun Livingston's leg break still haunts me tho. If you know you know... (Im gonna keep saying this forever now) Sorry Im rambling. 

Peace to the family of XXXTentacion 

The final video of him foreseeing his death is mind blowing to me...
