I AM GVG

A place to connect the visuals to the words that form the crazy that is my existence.

On Monday, my boy Scottie announced that our boys Sayo and Brandon, after five years of giving young black professionals in DC a place to feel welcomed and to enjoy an amazing club experience, were closing the doors of their venue Recess the next night. 


The reaction from everyone I know who made so many fond memories over the years in that venue with these two great men were the same, “We have to be there!”


Then reality set in, damn, that’s tomorrow. Tuesday. Late night. In DC. Some of us had to move some things around. Some others said eff it and just jumped on a train straight after work and planned to jumped back on the train right after the party to go straight to work. Whatever needed to be done was done to all be together to share in this moment.


I was glad to to have all my folks from years of running those DC streets together in the same place at the same time. It was the best kind of reunion and it was for a good cause.


Brandon/Sayo, though we’ll miss Recess, I know the closing was the right decision for you both and your futures. I hope your tomorrow’s are filled with great success and many blessings. Congrats on leaving an industry known for shadiness with a reputation of being the good guys. Cheers. #enjoytheseconds

Sing along if you know the words.

And so I wake in the morning and I step outside
And I take deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs,
WHAT’S GOIN’ ON!!

And I say hey…. hey….

Ridin round and gettin it with my little homie. #enjoytheseconds

This #MOBETTAWU show is the best thing that’s happened to my month. I laughed. I cried. I sang along. 

All praise to the sisters and the Gods - @ThomasAHarden @TreasureKyn @amandaseales @Bluesilvercg for making it happen. 

P. S. I like it raw.

This is my moment. The future is mine. The goal is within reach. All I have to do is make the right decisions and surround myself with the right people. My tomorrows will be based on the decisions I make today and that weight, though heavy, is one I’m ready to take on. I have a big announcement coming. I hope you’ll all support the decisions I’ve made for me and those I hold most dear. 

Stay tuned.

That awkward moment when Facebook tries to send you subliminal messages first thing in the morning. Hi, Eden. #EnjoyTheSeconds

NYC - Rio for the World Cup final and my boy’s wedding. So close. So far. 97 thug tears were just shed.

You can’t take Haitians or Latinos anywhere. Once they hear that cha cha cha boom beat they don’t know what to do with themselves. LOL #bluesmokeefx
