Have you heard?! Did you know?! That’s right, issue 13 of Copywrite Magazine just dropped January 15! The anticipation has been killing me and I am proud to say, with the final results, everyone involved in this issue has exceeded my expectations substantially. Thanks to every single individual who made this issue happen!

I must say, learning that I would be in charge of styling the winter photoshoot definitely had me a bit shaken up! This would be the first time I had done anything this major. These are models who take their image seriously, a photographer who will have his name on his work, and an editor-in-chief who has their heart throughout the project. Yikes! 
Walking in and meeting the models as they arrived reiterated that nervousness all over again. That is until something started to happen. My mind went on autopilot and I began doing what I would do at home as I’m headed out with friends, grabbing clothes! One of the things I am most thankful for is the level of comfortability everyone brought onset. Once first looks went on, it was lights, camera, action! During this time, I took the opportunity to set up looks for the second half. Now the fun part was putting together the looks without necessarily knowing who would be wearing what! I must say, I cannot imagine anybody in anything other than what they wore. To have that freedom and still knowing that I was trusted to make this shoot happen, really humbled me and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity!

Recently I have been battling myself on if this is something I want to continue and with the release of issue 13, I feel like it was a confirmation that I was and still AM doing the right thing.
Thank you to our wonderful models who brought our vision to life:  

And a special thank you to our photographer @seanchris for capturing everything through his lenses!

We want to hear more from THR33. Check out “Fuck it Up” and let us know what you think.


Issue 13: Rebellion Out Now!

If we are defiant, it is only out of suppression. Tiptoeing through society has left us off balance, anxious, and unable to continue to survive playing it safe. This issue of CopyWrite is a Rebellion in its process. Our features are unorthodox characters with rule breaking methods. Interviews with Dream Lab owner Shawn Dekay, Leevel Ford, Mudy, Kane Rulan, Ex Fabula Feature Camille Davis & more.

A.C. the Ruler - 26 (Prod. Chu)

Today’s submission comes from Milwaukee artist A.C. the Ruler. His new single “26” was just released on Christmas Day. This song is easily relatable to anyone trying to find their way through life and always continuing to grind because like A.C the Ruler says, “It’s never over.”

“A.C. the Ruler is an emcee hailing from Milwaukee, WI with a knack for word play and amazing storytelling. Inspired by the golden age of hip hop with a modern day feel, A.C. the Ruler is part of the hip hop collective OffBrand -OffBrand is a group of rappers from Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, WI- wordsmith of the game that speaks a picture of the ocean to life with details from the reflection of sorrow drowning to the texture of each and every curve of a sea shell A.C. is a storyteller and an auditory activist that brings a certain unique style to his music.”

You can find this single and more music from his catalog on all streaming platforms.


Dirty Thoughts - The Price of Freedom

This is the last one of the year and as always, I have no idea what to say! I could go deep, be dramatic, find purpose and meaning, be calculated and strategic or be really rushed and to the point. . . I’m just not sure what I want to share right now & THAT'S THE TRUTH.

My “Dirty Thoughts”  are supposed to be liberating. Out of the structure of what I have to say to keep you guys entertained. But sometimes, that gets hard. To dig into my soul and show the uncensored truth. . . How many of you have really met Dirty?

When it’s the last one. . . of a set, of a group, of a memoir (who remembers Sleepless Nights With Dirty? That was some of my best work), it's supposed to be meaningful, uncensored and strong. . .

But this isn’t that.

If you have been paying attention this year you know what mayhem has occurred in my professional and personal life. You know how I have learned to fight fire with water instead of engulfing things in rage. You know how much BALANCE has been my call to action and self love has been my method of sanity.

Today I just want to say thank you to my team, the ones who are on the #SQUAD, the ones who show support by sending me good vibes, and every person who has saw the effort and supported our mission. This is not a ME thing, this is and will always be a WE thing.

As I wrap up my year I have decided that forgiveness is key.

Letting go is best.

Scribbled across my bathroom mirror in lipstick for the rest of the year to remind me why going hard, making waves and being unapologetic about the choices is worth it:

This is the Price of Freedom.

Find yours and don’t give it up!

Happy New Years Fam!

(LAST) Fashion Friday of 2018!

Looks like we made it! Its the end of the week and the end of 2018!!
I gotta give thanks to CopyWrite Magazine and the readers who have given me the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas on fashion. The ride has been fun and I cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store!

This week, I bring you a mood I was feeling in Chicago. Yours truly took his drip to the Windy City!
Deep shades of green paired with black gave my step the swagger I needed to let my presence be known. My favorite part of this look was the gold chain you see hanging across my jacket. That is literally a wallet chain that i clipped to each side of my coat to give it a regal appearance.
As always, keep it saucy Milwaukee and be safe this holiday weekend! Make sure you give look no matter where you go and if haters can’t take it, you’re doing a great job!

Mayyh3m - Wake up (Video Submission by Greg Conley)

Today’s submission is a dope video created by Greg Conley and the artist Mayyh3m called “Wake Up.” The message of the video speaks about the unfortunate climate we live in now of unjust police brutality, Black on Black crime and the daily struggle Black men face just trying to make it home at the end of the day. The chorus repeats the recognizable biblical prayer “If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take,” because that’s how these men feel, having no idea what could happen once they walk out their door everyday. But they still have to live their life.

The bridge of the song slows everything down a bit and discusses being mindful of who you keep around you and call your friend. You can’t trust everyone... I know we all can relate to that.

Overall, the visuals are great (with a lot of dynamic transitions) and the beat pairs well with them. We could see J.Cole or Wale flow nicely over it.

But don’t just take our word for it, check it out for yourself and tell us what you think! #WakeUp
