 NEW MILLENNIUM

HIP HOP EARLY 90's

By 1985 "My problems became stronger than my legs and I couldn’t run very far" in 1991

I was pointing in the direction of California. Here was where I was supposed to find my way back but I kept

"Throwing ice cubes at the sun".

 

After being on and off the grid for eight years drowning in my addiction,
By 1993 I rekindled my relationship with life on its term by way of sobriety,
I slowly found my way back into the music industry and into their den of vipers with all It’s segregated agenda and economic racism.

 

In 1993 I got a request from a music industry associate who hired me to shoot "Friday's" movie screening and after party for Priority records.
 

The few conglomerates that controlled the industry gave me many opportunities to document the rise of the independent labels and I began to photograph the concert halls, award shows and music video production sites throughout Los Angeles.

 

I became a staple within the black music scene working for a multitude of labels that never honor paying my invoices in a timely manner, so once again I’m finding my wealth in the imagery that I was amassing.
