(6/1/16) - On this day, we headed to Malibu to shoot a music video for a new artist that I recently signed. I met with photographer Ola Bakare (http://instagram.com/obkre) and he was also planning to take some photos of Nizhoni Cooley (http://instagram.com/nizhonicooley), on this day. Nizhoni is a well known YouTube personality and social media influencer. Months after shooting this, Nizhoni also starred in Kevin Gates "Time For That" music video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gztnxq2lUo8). We moved as quickly as we could because the water level were starting to rise on the beach. We had fun and the shoot turned out well. Check out some of the behind the scenes footage from the music video.

(3/31/16) - Here’s footage of my newborn son Taj when he was only two months old. True success in the music and entertainment business is being financially free while finding time to share with your loved ones. When I’m not working, I do my best to find as much time for my family as possible. I work on being a better father every day and my children have been a huge inspiration. I strive to provide all of the things they’ll ever want and need in life.
