“My bitch too foreign, need a visa (ooh, ) I don’t need her (huh?)
Pull up drop top with a eater (skrrt, ) two seater (skrrt)
New bitch wanna fuck to my AP (AP, ice, ) new freezer (ice)

Hop off a jet to a check when I land (yuh)” ~Rich The Kid
Ahemm * clears throat* that’s my best friend, that’s my best friend!!
Another success to a well planned event put together once again by the beautifully spirited Nabíla Yasamen El-Bey. The beautiful Modie.J was the host for the night and DJ Goodnight was live on the 1s and 2s.
This time around I got to take a chance and do photography with Madela , half of the Picture It Wright team with Johnthan, and @ArtHousePgh. Awesome awesome awesome vibes from them everyone all evening. Y’all see that flower center chest it was painted by the lovely Allison Melczak of Mad Culture and Other Creative Things. Keith Blockton of KB Innovative Promotions was in the building, Kastles lingerie was everything and then some, Boonie the Kid has his Blue Diamond Vodka was in effect. Everything was dope!! I’m excited to start receiving my photos back from the event; which, by the way, will be posted in the next blog to come showing the work of the photographers. Can’t wait to see what Nabíla has in stored next for us. Smooches!!!

I had the pleasure of finally getting a chance to link with Capo himself. One of the originators of DSB, Dream Something Bigger, a business that started 10 years ago with a group of friends from the east side of Pittsburgh. It was the respect, love, and support of one another and from the community that has helped root the establishment into the business it has flourished to today.
I first met Capo originally earlier this month at #TheUltimatePowershoot mixer that was brought together by Nabíla Yasamen El-Bey. And just to show networking at its finest, flash forward me and Capo are sitting down inside of Panera Bread in Bakery Square conversing about black business and what we can do to collectively gain the right economics to keep business sustainable.
Not only is Capo an artist but DSB, Dream Something Bigger, has branded clothing; they’ve also provide the services of videography, photography, graphic designs, and promo services. Recently, they have started down the lanes of producing events in regards to parties; you never really know what to expect with the way business has evolved for DSB.

“Baby we don’t need no script (script) for this, Ima throw a couple thousand baby strip (strip) for this, Let me pull my camera out and make a movie, yeahhhhhh…”
Casey Casey Casey…thee sweetest man you’ll ever meet. He just makes my heart melt *sighs*. I met Casey almost 7/8 years ago and at that time we both were attending trade school, him going for HVAC and me for my CNA, now flash forward he is now a videographer for upcoming artist and main stream music artist in the industry.
Just coming back fresh from off of your with Hardo, Stevie B, and Tee Grizz i was able to get some of his time. And the way his life is set up I’m very appreciative i have a moment to sit down and talk business endeavors and just our overall growth as individuals. Beyond proud of this man and all the work he has done with more to come. From him releasing his productions to BET, to him going on tour, and just his success overall. He’s created a definite lane for himself.
If your in need of production work to be done do not hesitate to reach Casey, you can follow him on facebook @CaseyWinston. By the way my floral shirt is everything, I usually just stick to solids but I knew I would be seeing Casey so I had to spruce it up a bit, lol. Smooches!!
“Pose for the camera now, flick flick, pose for the camera now, flick flick…”
Yo baby yo baby yooooooooooo, man when I say I’m never camera ready today wasn’t going to be the day for that foolery. Got a chance to link with Michael Harris, Mikey for short. Side note: don’t quote me cause i can call him that I don’t know ’bout the rest of y’all, lol. I had a chance to nitpick his brain about his business endeavors and his recent flourish of business through photography.
After a drawn out five years of employment at Pepsi, Mikey positioned himself to be the man in charge of himself, boss status, literally. He made a need for the people a purpose for him to fulfill, so far so good. Sometimes it takes the pressures of life to force the diamond from within to shine through. Make sure to check out his website to look over his work and to contact him for work!!
