Not just another pretty face, Shirley is OFFICIAL in the fashion trend scene and I pretty much love Black women with English accents. Check her out.
I, along with the other the other attendees, first heard the announcement at this year’s DC Loves Dilla event and was blown away. Its dope to see how far hip-hop has come in getting honored and properly archived like jazz. Below is an excerpt from the official press release from the Smithsonian:
“The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture announces the donation of significant artifacts from the family of award-winning hip-hop artist and producer, James “J Dilla” Yancey. The items will be part of the museum’s growing arts and entertainment collection designed to explore how popular music helped shape the nation’s history and culture politically and socially. The announcement was made July 17 during the annual “DC Loves Dilla” tribute concert at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. Other musicians featured in the museum’s popular-music collection range from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne to Chuck Berry, George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic and Chuck D. Items from these and similar collections will be used in the “Musical Crossroads” exhibition, one of 11 inaugural exhibitions on view when the museum opens in 2016.”

Allen Iverson is hands down my favorite basketball player, so when I came across this gem I had to post.
The funny thing is is that when I was going to Hampton Univ. I got a chance to see him play maybe a year or so before he went to Georgetown Univ and the stuff he was doing on those courts on campus was WAY iller than what’s in these highlights, sans breaking Michael Jordan’s ankles.

What do you do?
I am a multi-media artist, primarily focused on photography, filmmaking, acting, modeling, and projection art. I try to associate with and observe very diverse and divergent assortments of humans in my daily life.
Talk about style, who or what are some of your style influences?
Frida Kahlo is my style muse and role model. I tend to look toward powerful, iconic women of bygone eras as my style icons as opposed to modern style icons. Another big influence is Maya Deren, an experimental female filmmaker from the 1940s. These women represent archetypes of strength and sexual creativity.
