HAPPY NEW YEAR PEEPS.
I wish you all the best. I hope that you will use your wisdom learned from last year to help those around you and yourself to become stronger, happier and free to make the most out of this short time that we all have on our sweet planet.
Before I start spraying you with it, this is what I do - Graf, Foto - Graf - and have been since I was 16 when I swapped the cans for the Camera.
Thanks for watching - and Welcome to my journey.

Boxfresh Quality

This article was posted by Jamil GS 1 Year, 2 weeks, 2 days, 8 hours, 8 minutes ago.

Aint nutn like a nice boxfresh surprise to start to the day off courtesy of my man Sung Choi and Clae footwear. I’ve been rockin’ joints from them for a grip of years now, and the goods represent as stated on the box, quality, versatility and style. On top of that, they are so comfortable you can skate in them.
All the shoe styles are named after cultural icons, like this one named after the great composer Billy Strayhorn, who was a long time collaborator of Duke Ellington.
Even if you arent a Jazz connoisseur, you know the track   A TRAIN. Thanks to my brother in the west, I now have the fresh shoes w the boppin’ vibes in my steppin.
Oh, and be on the lookout for that fresh Clae mixtape on the way, it never disappoints.

YACHTIN

This article was posted by Jamil GS 1 Year, 3 months, 2 weeks, 3 days, 9 hours, 47 minutes ago.

Artist see.
This is a young Jay photographed in Battery Park City, Downtown New York.
I picked the location because I knew Jay was aspirational and that he would one day own a Yacht like the one he’s posing in front.
The shots were for publicity and other use related to the release of his first album Reasonable doubt. He’s come along way and clearly entering fatherhood changes his perspective and focus. I think there are some bangers on this new Magna Carta album. My favorite atm is this one “oceans” white boat in heaven yachtin’ ocean 11.


Jay came and picked me up at my apartment on Avenue A and 7th street in his ‘white Lexus before he had a record deal’ asked me if I wasnt scurred living around so many freaks. This is 1995, L.E.S. pre gentrification, Somewhereinamerica
