A few months ago I interviewed fellow photographer and owner of Avant Garde [@the_Garde], Mr Courtney Jefferson [@C_Jefferson_]. Well its my pleasure to put all my ATLiens on notice that Court will have a solo exhibition in the area tonight. If you’re up for seeing great work and interacting some solid creatives this is your move. Details above and read my interview with Courtney HERE!
If you’re in the Triangle area of NC or any where in the world for that matter, you should be on high alert for this joint right here. My boys King Phill [@KingPhill_] of Cool&Well-Dressed and Reggie [@Stealthdaybe] are collabing on stellar project. The event details are on the flyer above and you read more about the project itself after the jump.
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of getting a inside look at one of North Carolina’s fastest growing brands, Thrill City. I won’t spoil the episode but to know these guys literally started with one design and in two years have made it to flagship level is pretty amazing. The team was super humble and personable – This is probably the most fun I have had filming an episode – There was a lot going on haha but anyway – I’ll let you guys get to it. Enjoy some stills after the jump as well.
So a few months back I was on instagram scrolling and I came across a video on Tange Lomax‘s profile of what seemed to be some sort of cypher. I read the caption and looked at some other flicks and videos and noticed she was in Boone. There was a lot of dope talent but one emcee stood out to me – that emcee goes by the name of C.Shreve The Professor [@SeeShreve] – I DM’d Tange and asked for some sort of contact for this guy and his crew but little did I know we would meet in person a few months later at NiGEHOOD’s mixtape release performance. As we all know there a lot of people making music these days but Shreve’s aura is one of pure HIP HOP and I MEAN HIP HOP. The beats he chooses, the way he delivers his rhymes, his flow it reminds me of why I love this art form so much. Additionally, he is a very positive and humble spirit which probably explain why his music is so pure. Check out his new video “Summer Ransom” and be on the look out for a project with the same title dropping in July! Shoutout to FTO – Keep reading for more info and dope music!
If you have been in or around Charlotte for any length of time you have probably heard of F4mily Matters [@F4mily_Matters]. Samir reached out to me a few weeks ago told me about this video they would be dropping giving greater insight to the brand. I definitely walked away with a bit more knowledge about how it came to be and why it is they operate the way that they do – this was a very well put together project. Hit their site and peep their summer line that just dropped too – Enjoy!
