What Happened to CNN?

I always thought CNN was like the go to news network for America. Now they got Nancy Grace hosting?? So ya’ll have essentially given up on journalism and decided to go full on ambulance chaser? Fucking sad. America needs a new news station.

I Can’t Remember SHIT about the Great Gatsby

url-9

#TBT. I wrote this almost a year ago when the first Great Gatsby promos started. Speaking of which, is this the longest promo run in movie history? What the fuck? Anyway, with the movie finally opening now I thought this was relevant to re-post.

Just for the record I still don’t give a fuck about this movie and I hate this whole 1920’s shit people are trying to be on. If you see this shit in 3D you are a true asshole.

Cardio Fiend

This nigga’s swag is one hundred million thousand. I can’t even begin to explain how different this dude and I look when we are working out. I don’t even know how that nigga is moving like that. I’m pretty sure he’s like ice skating on a treadmill in sneakers. What song played in your head when you watched it?

Bornsinner.com | Kay Cole

When we were making Quarter Water Raised Me Vol. I, me and Bas knew nothing about the game other then create dope shit with dope people and good things will happen. When I was finishing up my degree at NYU I met a kid named Adam Saewitz. He was a film major who shot the Dollar and A Dream concert I hosted.

We decided to link up with him to see if was down to shoot a visual for one of the joints off QWRM1. He showed us a photo essay about a waitress and then we went to eat lunch and that waitress was our waitress. Some really trippy shit.

The photo essay stuck in my head. For two years I pitched different variations of that idea to every client I had. I wanted to create my own version. Tell people’s stories to the world through pictures and their own personal insights. Stories, parables … it’s what made society society. People learning from other people. When the team sat down to discuss how we could expand on Cole’s album, I brought up the idea of BornSinner.com to Adam Roy, my good friend and Dreamville’s Creative Director.

Adam took a mooked idea and helped cultivate it into BornSinner.com. It blows my mind that not only do I get to see our idea come to fruition, we partnered with Rolling Stone in the process. If it was not for me being bodied in a North Carolina backyard thinking about my future, I don’t hit up Quick about booking Cole at NYU. If I don’t hit up Quick about booking Cole at NYU, I don’t meet Saewitz. If I don’t meet Saewitz, I don’t see that photo essay. If I don’t see that photo essay, I’m not inspired to tell the story of people’s stories. All of that led to BornSinner.com.

Next up… Kendrick Lamar.

PS. Much love to Sharone Poole behind the cam and Mez behind the boards.
