Had the immense pleasure of attending and covering the 2017 Spoleto Music and Arts Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. Working with the Pulitzer Prize Winning Post and Courier provided great insight and experience. Over the course of three weeks I was lucky enough to cover a wide array of artists and events. Samples of the work are available to read below, enjoy.

Presenting the latest visual, Distant Mirage, off the recently released ‘Chronicles’ project. Shot and directed by Adelbert Street Productions. Enjoy, more work to come.
Today is the day, presenting the debut solo mixtape “Chronicles.” The songs on this project were created over past three years and cover a broad range of subjects from revolution to spiritual healing. This is a snapshot of a young man with a message trying to connect with the world. Listen like you’re reading a collection of short stories. Hope you enjoy, much more music to come this year.
Published a story covering the hip-hop scene in upstate New York. While it can be difficult for artists to be discovered, groups like Last Hope Entertainment are working hard to build something on the ground they stand on. Many artists flock to larger markets to chase their major label dreams, so it’s refreshing to see artists collaborating for a grassroots movement. Progress is a slow process, but longevity is the true reward.
Traveled from Miami to Austin TX for my first SXSW experience. Connected with old partners, linked up with new ones and helped run a successful event. Here is a recap of #NoBigDealSXSW with A3C, Erace The Hate, and Reebok. Performances featured Mick Jenkins, Nick Grant, Hefna Gwap, and more. All hosted by Virginia’s own MicxSic. Thanks to all who came out.
Stay on the lookout for Erace The Hate content, with their #LegalizePeace campaign in full kick off, there’s about to be new gear, music and scholarship opportunities.
After a year of collaboration and exploration, it’s time to start rolling out the new material. ‘Blvd Knights’ is the first single off the upcoming ‘Chronicles’ project, due out early 2016. The track features DMV emcee $avoy and production from Milwaukee standout originalvision. Just a taste of things to come, enjoy.
