Deirdre and crew visit Haiti

My old boss Deirdre Maloney, owner of BPMW Agency and three of her friends, Terrence J, Fred Whitaker, Jamel Davenport, and David Joseph, recently visited Haiti to see first hand the calamity that the January 12th earthquake caused.  Collectively, they put together a short video highlighting what they saw, their interaction with the people, and a message about what needs to be done to fix things.  It is refreshing to see these media personalities deal with the real things going on in the world and committing to helping.

Trilly and Truly–“Basic Info” Collection

Lupe Fiasco takes time to introduce and quickly explain the ideals behind the “Basic Info” collection from his Trilly and Truly line.  Based on three main ideals, peace, represented by Martin Luther king Jr.;  anarchy, Noam Chomsky;  and history, shown as Adolf Hitler,  Lupe tells us that the collection is designed simplistically and has fundamental ideals.  The collection will be housed at select retailers including RSVP Gallery in Chicago.

My Next Read—“Linchpin: Are You Indispensable”

Recommended by my brother Ev, this looks to be next up for me.  “Linchpin: Are You Indispensable” asks you that very question in its contents.  The book doesn’t tell you how to be this way, but outlines the qualities and attributes that this person has.  The ability to think outside of your “lizard brain” holds the real key to being free and indispensable.

CURT@!N$ on TBB TV

Curt@!n$ talks with Frank the Butcher about his triangular love affair with Revolution, Fashion, and the Streets.  Ever since meeting the dude back in 2006, he’s been evolving into not only a PHENOMENAL artist but a great thinker.  Great to see the REAL dudes winning.

Peep the throwback video we shot for Curt@!n$…

Movie Trailer–The Lottery

In a city where great emphasis is put on material and monetary success, the most evident problems of poverty is often overlooked.  Education is the inner city is a hot button issue that has yet to see any substantial improvement.  Countless schools are being closed due to failing students.  The Lottery looks at four families from The Bronx and Harlem who are patiently waiting to find out their young children’s educational fate.  These kids’ futures depend on a lottery that, if won, would land them in a charter school.  Charter schools are the saviors for a crippled NYC education system.  I can’t wait to see the full film.
