Much love to all the contributing artists, producers, and sound engineers for the Rise Album. Great design work by Far-I-Rome Productions! Its a pleasure to use my artistic skills to produce music and art that is intended to encourage others to be aware of self, and to be determined. Excited to be releasing this project Friday at RISE: Elementz 12th Year Anniversary Open House

Was up til midnight with Daystar the other night at Elementz as he worked on painting the “Rise” logo for our upcoming 12th year anniversary open house this Friday.  Its always amazing to see what he can do with a spray can.

Thanking all who came out to the Esquire Theatre for the premier of “The Spirit of Tafari.” It was a very inspiring night in so many ways. Very grateful to the Most High for allowing us to see this project through and shine light on this positive young mans story. I’m also very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with partner Donald Hancock on producing this film. 

Like Tafari said after the screening, “I hope we’ve inspired you.”

The Spirit of Tafari, directed by Abdullah Powell and produced by Donald Hancock, premiers Lord willing tonight at the Esquire. Registration for 7:30 PM is full!  Come to the door at 8:30 PM for free 2nd screening.
