WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Work It

20 Dec


All this week I’ve had ‘work, it, work it’ stuck in my head while doing an intergalactic sexy gig.  This is all due to the lyrical stylings of  Israeli female rapper Adi Ulmansky and the killer visuals by my homie, Cult of Dang.  The video,” Work It,” premiered on VICE’s Noisey music channel earlier this week and is gaining a lot buzz.


Check out the video and I guarantee the song will be stuck in your head.  Also make sure to check out more incredible illustrations by Cult of Dang.

Gossyp Jai Nima Idowu JADO Images Fashion Style What Gets You Movin

I’m always looking for people, things, videos…anything, that inspires me.  Inspiration creatively, visually, mentally, spiritually, just something that moves me. I’ve been fortunate to not only meet, but sometimes shoot many who move me in some way. Because of this, I’m starting a new interview series where we get a chance to speak with some of these people who have moved me in some way and see what they have going on.


For the 1st interview post, I spoke with female music duo, GossYp. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting these beautiful sisters, Adina and Amina, a few time this year. Not only are these Brooklyn born, Long Island-bred girls, chill, down to earth, and nice, they are Continue reading

Have you checked out the dopeness that is Pharrell’s 24-hour music video Happy?As an image maker this video is over-the-top inspiring.  The 4 minute song plays continuously, as we watch Pharrell, as well as kids, women, men, and dancers, jam along to the song, to what are staged regular moments.  Shot in a continuous, one camera format, the video is smart, innovate, fun…and makes me Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Suit & Tie

14 Jan

By now, I’ve went to bed and woken up to Justin Timberlake’s new joint Suit & Tie, I think I’ve listen to it 15 times.  If you follow me on twitter, you know I’m feeling it.  I find it to be grown, sexy, soulful, pop  music and I’m looking forward to hopefully hearing more of Timberland and this vibe in the airwaves.

The track features Jay-Z with JT, but i have to say, Jay’s verse was kind of lack luster. The highlight for me was Timberland’s production; Suite & Tie takes me on a ride where i want to two-step, slow motion, and strip tease for my well-dressed man.  With the beat and JT’s crooning, it’s feels perfect for Fall or late Spring, but I’ll take it right now as well!

We haven’t heard new music from Justin since 2006, and although this isn’t some huge smash, i think it’s a great vibe to come back into the music game with; one again JT is bringing sexy back!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Feelin’ So Good

7 Jan


Don’t judge me, but one of my favorite songs is Jennifer Lopez’s Feelin’ So Good.  Not because it’s some amazing song, where JLo shows off her amazing singing prowess (hahaha), but solely because it really does make me feel so damn good! 

The song has been on heavy heavy rotation today, minus listening to J.Cole’s Friday Night Lights once (to motivate me on my grind), it’s the only things I’ve listened to today; on repeat.  New York can jade you and can make you down right unknowingly cranky, so I wanted to change up my vibe. 

I used to listen to Feelin’ So Good all the time in college when I was having a crap day. When this is on, I’m literally skipping down the street, smiling, and couldn’t have a care in the world, and HELLO Big Pun is on the track; try it out.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Buffalo Stance

4 Jan

Neneh Cherry’s Buffalo Stance has been stuck in my head for the last 2 days.  As a kid I only knew the chorus, and that’s all I really still know, but I still love it.

Side note, I forgot how stunning Nenah Cherry was, boy have videos improved, and is it bad that i think I want a dollar sign chain?
