KICK THE TRUTH

LIVE FROM COPENHAGEN NORTH WEST
YOUNG STRINGERS ARE ON THE MOVE.
I’d like to introduce an educational project that I have developed for inner city youths in collaboration with the city of Copenhagen. I am dedicating allot of time to it right now and it is evolving positively.
I still have a little time for my other creative endeavours and I will share plenty of that to follow.
Take a look and follow the process, I hope you will like what you see.   YoungStringers
Peace to you and One Love.
J.

AHEAD AND HANDMADE

This article was posted by Jamil GS 9 months, 2 weeks, 1 Day, 20 hours, 17 minutes ago.

In the midst of this ice cold hard as fck winter that we are being hit with in the entire western hemisphere, I’m extremely grateful that I am prepared to hit the hard weather with help from my friends at   FEIT
As things speed up, I gravitate more towards quality experiences that I know will last. The same goes for the products and goods I buy for myself and others. I dont have time for shit that breaks or wears out too fast. I dont want to support things that have no consciousness of our environment or the future.
FEIT shares the same mentality.
In this pre-fabricated world, they have taken it back to the handmade process where all their products are hand made by real craftsmen, and they think sustainable using biological materials.
Check em out. Besides the heavy wear and tear boots, they have a fresh take on the sneaker meets italian quality shoes. Thanks dudes.

A THOUSAND WORDS

This article was posted by Jamil GS 10 months, 1 week, 3 days, 9 hours, 39 minutes ago.

A picture speaks a thousand words..that’s been a saying for a while now, and I agree.
Just as I am going down memory lane, I am reminded of the importance and the value of good Foto grafs. For me they are like music, they have the same effect and ability to both stir up energy, emotion and memories. They are like timecapsules that allow you to touch frozen moments of the past.
It is now proven that these flashes leaves you in a happier mood than people who arent exposed to them. Not just any image, but good iconic images.

I received this dope timecapsule by mail. It has triple value for me because the image represents iconic historical significance for the people, music and a culture that I love, and then it’s wearable.
I have been collecting T’s with art that speaks to me since the early 90’s, so I am happy to add this to my collection.
Check out the site   A THOUSAND WORDS, It has plenty of unmistakeable dopeness worth pursuing, including iconic classics from 12OZ contributer and legend Martha Cooper and Photography legends Jamel Shabazz, Joe Gonzo and Ernie Pannicioli.
Big Up to Koe Rodriguez, the mastermind behind A Thousand Words.

I remember walking through the ball park on the way to the LIRR, smelling the good herb in the sky and hearing this blast from the radios and cars.

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, 1 Month, 6 days, 4 hours, 46 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.
