Essentials of an artist. omarvictorious friend biancadoesnyc is working on a mural in memory of vicevvs who passed away in April (a few weeks after I met him briefly at a graffiti.kids_ event). Mural is on Fulton and Classon, went passed it earlier today! (on the bed-stuy side, as classon is the border.)

For the next few weeks, any OUTSIDE photos I take, I’m being socially distant and making sure to not touch anyone or anything. But for my mental health and exercise I DO need to get outside. Be safe everyone, we WILL and CAN get through this.

#Quarantinejam🙌🏽 PT. 4 Featuring edsonsean 
J-O-Y JOY. 👈🏽
edsonsean and I started playing shows together last year and it’s been on ever since. I hope that this brings you as much joy as does me. Share with someone who enjoys beats and rhymes because Hip Hop is good for (y)our health. 🙌🏽 “We forever are faithful 
To impart the art we are made to 
For the brethren Edson I’m grateful 
We on one accord with no XLR cables 
The voice is the choicest instrument 
These beats and bars are for your benefit 
Caution the pessimist 
Awesome the sentiment
Often it’s something like 
talking to therapists 
You know I’m all for the marriages 
Pen turn a player to a bride or a Benedict 
Horses and carriages 
Of course I’m a never quit 
Yo my baby fly and I ain’t talking bout Cherubim
If I ain’t rhyming then I’m perishing 
Bring it even if I’ve got to wing it like a Seraphim 
Till I’m next door to Dilla-where? (Delaware) like Maryland 
And me and Phife get to cyph life I’m cherishing 
After that we all might need a Claritin 
Even the kind of guy who finds crying quite embarrassing 
Fortunately there’s more to the narrative 
Heaven is my home hip hip is my heritage 
There it go 
There it is 
Nourishment encouragement
It’s all so imperative”

Kindness cannot be quarantined!! Here is a sneak peek of the care package being delivered to Chi Chi. Chi Chi is one of the oldest residents but has the most youthful spirit. She is very independent, strong-willed and has a vivid memory. She always tells us that even if she could fly all over the world, she would still pick NYC because she loves NYC with all her heart. 💜 She is a blessing every single time we are in her presence. #leadersoflight #inservitude #Art4NY #volunteers #kindnessbeatsthevirus #carepackages
