True repentance is an admission of wrong-doing and guilt. It is a confession that you have committed an act so abhorrent, you deem it necessary to plead forgiveness. But – what if the act is only a part representation of self? Must one be apologetic for their duality? To some, the answer is simple: Yes. To others, admission is an admonishment of one’s identity. In doing so, you deny traits that embody your individuality. You betray your essence. This week, I introduce a brand that not only embodies the empowerment of self, but also champions the duality that resides within.
Seein’ as my last post was on a #ThrowbackThursday vibe, it’s only right I followed suit with this one. It makes sense to follow the structure. At least that’s what I’m tellin’ myself anyhow. But, here’s the truth of the matter. As the pop up took place on Carnival weekend, I had a lot of content to organise ‘n’ prep for the comin’ week. That, ‘n’ the fact I flew out to Greece for a week with my little hitta (haydenjarrett_) a couple days after the event took place. So, I had to put this one on the back burner till I touched back down on home turf. But don’t worry bout nothin’. We here now. We got the content. Let’s jump in ‘n’ tell you what went down at the gramm x basementapproved drop.
Here’s the thing. When you’re a ‘natured’ creative wrapped within the confines of a ‘nurtured’ corporate sphere, it can be extremely overwhelming. Though the law of the land dictates money is a necessity to afford basic human requirements (food/water/shelter), the conscience of nature will fight against the restraints of nurture. It wants to be free. It’s not something you can easily suppress. However, whereas the idealist may succumb to their innate inclinations, the realist strives to find balance betwixt the discord that rages within. This week, I introduce a man determined not to give in.
Atrait all great leaders must have in their arsenal. Côte is the army; Sheikh Tijan Jobe is the General. Alongside his trusted captains’, he has marched at a steady pace amassing a legion along the way that now has the momentum to breach the fortified walls of the establishment. Retreat is not an option.
