"Suckas tryna hide like the struggle won't find em And the sun bust through the clouds to clearly remind 'em: It's EVERYWHERE..." -Mos Def


Hey fam,

In case you didn't already know, I'm a semi-professional hip hop fan.  One of my favorite rappers ever is Yasiin Bey, better known as the mighty Mos Def

I was listening to music earlier when his song Auditorium (featuring Slick Rick, but that's a whole 'nother blog post) popped up.

Mos Def
Song: Auditorium (feat. Slick Rick)
Album: The Ecstatic 

Mos is so cool he could read the dictionary to the beat and I would pro'lly like it...
But as it turns out, he gets deep on this joint with one of my favorite lyrics from this album:

So me being me, I could not resist making a teeshirt graphic out of it.  I've been putting designs on the print-on-demand site Teepublic lately, so let's keep it going.

All proceeds from my Teepublic store payout will continue to go to the Innocence Project, so we can help get innocent people out of prison.

Sound good?

Like many artists, I can be excessively emotional at times like these. 

Contributing my talent to causes that are working to make the situation better... Being part of the solution...  It helps. 

Know what I mean?
On my break from some client work, I came back and drew this.  Temperatures have been in the high nineties here in Texas, so that Mos Def lyric conjured an image of an angry sun letting everyone know that the Struggle is real.

And Summer is coming...

I kinda like this drawing.  Might put it on stickers or something. 

I feel like it NEEDS something...
What do you think?

Anyways, that's it for now.  I gotta get back to work (Yeah, I'm still in hustle mode right now).

As usual, thanks for reading, fam, and feel free to reach out if you need anything, feel like chatting, or have any questions.

Have a great day!

P.S.  A portion of anything money you spend with us (at least 10%) will be donated to the Innocence Project, a non-profit that uses DNA evidence to free people who are wrongfully imprisoned.

We're also currently supporting Direct Relief, a nonprofit that supplies protective equipment to medical professionals fighting COVID.

So any goods and services you buy from me will help make a difference!
