Thank you haters pt2: “I’m a big picture guy, he’s about an image” When you have a long term goal, being cool is no longer as important. Some people may laugh at you and call you strange when they see you investing in yourself because you’re not at all the parties , they don’t see enough money in your clothes etc… Don’t sweat that. Keep building and slowly investing in yourself. That’s called loving yourself. When you live for others people’s approval that’s called hating yourself. And guess what? The thing you were doing for the love of it may become the next cool right at the point that you relieve yourself of others expectations! #creativedirector #songwriter #hiphop #goodmusic #selfhelp #motivation #selflove #work

My music has been featured on NBA INSIDE STUFF multiple times. This one you’ll hear “ABI, UMMI”, off the album “the calm before the storm”. Imagine if i had listened to those who tried to box my possibilities into their own self hatred-motivated corner. Allah is GREATER #creativedirector #songwriter #musiclicensing #staythecourse

My latest production is for former Nfl player, Hamza Abdullah. After struggling with thoughts of suicide , stress, and depression , he’s decided to create a platform to help others who’ve had similar struggles. Make sure you go to abdullahbros.com to watch the FULL movie then please support this man and pre-order his book. This was a deep one and I was honored to be chosen to lead the production of this video and the Abdullahbros.com new website. The vision started with what @hamzaabdullah21 wrote. Then shouts to my dope team Kirby Griffin as DP and @kayonaebonybrown as AD. Shouts to @uzauthor and @jamilahelamin for helping him write and edit his book respectively. And @meccadonna of @meccadigitale for doing graphics for me for abdullahbros.com. Thanks to @brotheraliisblind @ajablack and @bigsamir for putting their soul in the music we chose. You will find that the best projects have the best teams behind them. #creativedirector #filmmaker #musicsupervisor #storyteller #musicproducer #nfl #cte #suicide #depression #sports #transition
