Here’s a thought. Imagine the possibilities, if every multi-millionaire hip hop artist put 1 million…ok maybe thats far fetched. Say each one put 500K towards the development of a resource center such as this, in the state that they are from or currently reside.

We saved this video for last drop of the weekend. This is a video introspective travel into the elements of New Jersey born Atlanta artist Goldi Gold. It’s rare that visual artists produce calling cards like this. The reason being, alot of them are often paranoid about being seen action or having their secret squirrel techniques exposed.

All we have to say is .. it’s this type of passion for creativity that make people wonder whether artists sleep or not, forgetting (some not knowing) that sleep is the cousin of death.
The audio backdrop provided by FANSTA “Lex Boogie” from the Bronx. Directed by C.Flux.Sing and Goldi Gold. Shot and edited by C.Flux.Sing.
