Welcome To The Funk
As a fellow Brooklyn based creative visionary famous stated, "I Live For The Funk, I'll Die For The Funk". As an artist, I'm lucky to draw inspiration from dope shit on the daily, and "The Funk" is a weekly series dedicated to the many influences I find exceptionally awesome funky on aesthetically appreciative level. Content from my blog series will consist of life-changing cultural consumption from movies, songs, visual artwork, encounters, interpersonal relationships, and pretty much anything and everything that serves as a catalyst to my personal and creative growth.
In addition, if you're a friend, fan, supporter or subscriber, don't be a stranger. Keep the synergy flowing by sharing your own personal stories, and I'll be sure to post my favorite fan submissions.

"Believe" by CHISE ft. SHAREEF KEYES
Believe in your vision. Believe in your struggle. Believe in yourself. A dedication to everybody following their dreams and in-depth look at the difficulty an artist faces on a daily basis. "Believe" was originally written as a reminder for myself to keep grinding despite dealing with all the stress that comes along with the creative career path I chose. Ideally, my individual note-to-self can serve as inspiration to you as well. #AlmostThere #Believe. "Believe" is the second single off of #ATVVV, which is officially dropping 2/16/14.
