Age: ​27

Kids: ​1 cool kid for me. My son is my whole heart.

City you live in: ​Scottsdale​.

A typical day in my life includes…

chaos mixed with great planning. It certainly is filled with joy, adventure, ups and downs as I am a full-time entrepreneur. I can honestly say outside of Sunday I am truly up at about 4:00 am texting my business partner Alexandria by 6:00 am and her immediate reaction is “Really! It’s 6:00am.” I am sure Alex has her own story.

I was born…

​on October 9th, 1992 in Cleveland, Ohio.

My favorite thing about Arizona…​

is that in the last 5 years of being here, the state has grown daily. Infrastructure, businesses and even real estate has popped up quickly, making the state enjoyable to live in.

I’m listening to…

Ducky Smallz, Curren$y, Yaeji, MAC Miller, BrockHampton, Larry June, etc. The list goes on for days as we’ve sent music back and forth daily for years.

My family…

​including my business partner Alex, I would never be able to function without family.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my best friend Octavius Willform before he passed. He is responsible for the man I turned into when I moved to Phoenix. Without him, I probably would’ve missed the opportunity of meeting Alex and being able to see the positive energy in life.

One thing I cannot live without… ​

my headphones.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an entrepreneur.

I’m inspired by…​

my mom, my son, my mentor Marshall Knox and music.

The one person who motivates me is… ​

my son. He challenges me to think in multiple realms of life. He doesn’t accept “I can’t or “I don’t know”.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… ​

better time management. Time to allow everyone to enjoy each other at pizza restaurants. Ones that the Homies can pull up to, catch stunts, grab a slice and chill. Major moves, lol.

The perfect day would be…

waking up, praying/meditating, visit the homies and bumping music all day. I like the simple days because the ones when I’m in business mode are certainly full without breaks.

My first job was… ​

selling newspapers subscriptions door to door.

My favorite escape…

I like to travel but I love pizza and stuffing cones.

My life…

​is completely itself daily. Put together the man and you will put together the world.

I’m currently working on…

F​orever Homies Clothing.


h​ype up your friends and family!

Favorite Quote…​

“Become a legend, so your family becomes legendary.” – Me

Biggest Dream…

to have a store in New York as well as Tokyo. As well as own a 1996 Chevy Impala, 1986 Chevy Monte Carlo, and a 1984 Chevy El Camino.

My Pet Peeve(s)…​

full-time energy drainers. I can’t deal with 24/7 negative energy. YOU WILL GET CUT OFF. Have a bad moment or a bad day but sheesh, everything going wrong all the time?! No positives? Yeah, my apologies but I can’t accept that gift of energy.
