There’s just something about a talented female artist especially one with the ability to be lyrically sound. There is also something about people who take the time to craft their own sound and Tange Lomax [@TANGELOMAX] does just that. I think I am most intrigued by how her positivity and warm spirit is personified on her tracks. You listen to her and can not help but be pulled in and feel lifted by the vibes. I was thoroughly impressed by her mixtape, Lucid, that dropped in January and I am just as pleased with this track – enJOY – I know that was a lame pun but hey ….. I couldn’t help myself. Ha! Shoutout to FC Music Group – Peace!
I wanna give a big shoutout to the homie Sir Abstraxxx [@SirAbstraxxx] for his most recent performance at Twenty-Two off Central Ave. in Charlotte. The gallery was packed with a approximately one hundred people all coming to hear the words of one man backed by vocals from my little brother Gabe [@GabeDavis]. I want to wish Abstraxxx peace and blessings as he announced at this show he would be moving to Los Angeles soon to push his art form to the next level. It takes a certain type of courage to make that type of leap and I wish him nothing but the best. Abstraxxx has been a loyal photography client and was one of the first creatives in the area to embrace my movement when I relocated. I can’t thank him enough for the support in this past year. He hasn’t just showed up and tweeted but has spent his hard earn money supporting my movement – Nothing means more as an artist. Anyway, I captured this one through the lens of my polaroid camera. See what I captured after the jump – PEACE!
NiGEHOOD is following up his latest project Thoughts Vol.2 with visuals to a dope track he has with the homie Tim Stacks entitled “A-Train”. Sampling the 1996 jam from Jay-Z “Bring It On” these two produced a solid track that will definitely help you groove from the late summer into the fall. Enjoy!
Just about a month ago I was blessed with the opportunity to open an exhibit for my photography over at Dupp&Swat [@duppANDswat] in NoDa – Charlotte, NC. Dupp&Swatt is hub to a creative agency that has their hands in just about anything that creative that is going on in the city. After the release of Roll The Dice they were gracious enough to offer their back wall to me and allow me to express myself and display my photography how ever I saw fit. This was an overwhelming, dope, crazy, frustrating, amazing, stupid, annoying and blessed process and I couldn’t be happier to have taken it.
I want to give a shoutout and shed some light on something pretty big thats currently happening. My good friend Marco Matthews [@BlameMarco] in currently running a kick starter campaign to raise fund for a new interdisciplinary gallery and performance space for the Queen City.
