Das’ Essay: “Validity of Modern Rap”
Das shared an essay he wrote for an assignment in his English class. I'm incredibly proud of him! As with everything in this world, emerging Music is one thing that is constantly evolving with new sounds and ideas coming to the forefront fairly often. These evolutions aren’t always openly welcome despite the frequency. The genre... Continue Reading →
Trigger Part 1
So I must admit ... I wasn't a big fan of Prince when Torey and I met and I blame that on my upbringing! My fam had deep seeded roots in support for MJ so I was led on a biased based mentality (no knock on my loved ones by the way!). The summer I... Continue Reading →

It... Continue Reading →

I'm using this platform to share the story of the birth of Das ... I used to update this on Facebook but they no longer offer the Notes platform anymore! My son turns seventeen on 1.11.2021 and here's my memory: Back in January of 2004, we lived off of Chimney Rock & Highway 59 in... Continue Reading →
Yes, today is my 44th birthday ... and I must say this was one of the toughest years of our lives. Yes, OUR lives ... I believe all of us had more than enough struggle besides just dealing with COVID. I'm not just talking about just loss and grief but everything else that comes along:... Continue Reading →
