I made this montage to accompany my anti-war exposé “Shell Shock and Awe,” from my first album “Bullet! A Trigga Warning”. Please heed the warning at the beginning because this imagery can be triggering, hence the title of my album. I’mma offer a RefleXion soon, but in a nutshell: 1) I believe the world is run by sick, power-hungry individuals/institutions whose goal it is to destabilize the world. 2) I believe the average citizen ain’t tryna see no parts of this destruction. Yes, there are oppressed peoples in countries affected by #1, and they are willing to risk life and limb to be free…but I doubt anybody is eager to run off to war. 3) While artists are free to be creative however they choose, I believe that music that glorifies violence especially at our own expense is reckless and feeds the same beast reflected in this video. This music is merely a pawn in the grand scheme that seeks to control the planet’s population while weakening families, communities, cultures. Need to cut all that ish out. I don’t have all the answers, but as a person who believes in peace and love, I know this ain’t it. Fight the power. Like Kwame Turé said in the video, we’re talking about our survival. #antiwar #antiwar4life #antiwarmovement #antiwarart #endwar #endwars #peaceonearth #peaceforukraine #peaceforpalestine #peaceforall #peacefortheworld #peaceforeveryone #prayforhumanity #prayforpeace #freetheoppressed #militaryindustrialcomplex #hiphopmusicvideo

I love the designs and messages on awake.happy clothing. This “Internal Reform” tee says “One must quiet the outside, to learn from the inside.” True. I’ve been finding myself getting trapped in outside noise, which only takes me away from my own thing. I don’t consume much “news” or watch a lot of tv, but between Facebook and Instagram I get caught in tunnels of celebrity gossip, scrolling through “content creators,” and watching the advice spewed by thousands of “experts”. Inevitably, being overly fixated on what other people are doing is outside noise. I scroll more than I meditate, and that’s a problem. I averaged 7 hours of screen time per day last week. I need to decrease that noise and put more emphasis on creating, not consuming ✨ #awakehappy #internalreform #stopscrolling #startmeditating #changecomesfromwithin #consciousfashion #clothingwithamessage #consciousclothing #airmaxalways #nikeairmax

“The Anti-Popped Coalition” Me and the wife were talking about ways of showing up in the world, as a glowing authentic dope ass individual. We concluded that it’s not on you, it’s in you….but when it’s both, that’s when the Glow is strong 💪🏾When you feel AND look good. Thus, The Anti-Popped Coalition was formed. “Popped” is when you leave the house looking like whatever, just rolled out of bed, frumpled and crusty. Sometimes, as within so with out. Anti that. Freshen up! ✨✨ And so, this was what I wore to our most recent Target run. Because might as well 😎🔥😂 👖 flawedclothing beanie and reconstructed sweat pants 👕 hm pink hoodie 👟 nike “What the KD” KD 7s #kd7 #kd7s #whatthekd #whatthekd7 #flawedclothing #reconstructedclothing #reconstructedpants #reconstructedfashion #fashionmeetsart #artmeetsfashion #nikekevindurant #nike #hm #casualstreetstyle #casualstreetwear #custombeanie #custombeanies

As many of us reflect on the Resurrection this Sunday, remember that God gave us some agency too. You are a miracle and have a say in how things go. I know there are parts of me that I need to awaken for real. To resurrect, to reinvigorate and bring life and attention to. Call that in this season. What Bob say, “LIVELY UP YOURSELF” 🙏🏾😇🙏🏾 #resurrectionsunday #resurrectyourself #awakenyoursoul #thegodwithin

When I worked at Facebook, one of my favorite company mantras was “Done is better than perfect.” Make stuff and move on, “fix it” later. The hardest part about being an artist is knowing when to call it a wrap and move on to the next creation. There have been many times in the booth where I’ll record again, and again, and again…to get it just right. Part of creating is to let the inspiration come to you, receive it, work with it, and then let it FLOW THROUGH you. This makes space for the next idea, project, creation. Make it. Appreciate it. Move on. Remember the ABCs… Always Be Creating #artistinspired #artistsupport #artistinspiration #perfectionism #perfectionisoverrated #alwaysbecreating #creativeprocess #creativity #creatorsmustcreate
