CHOOSE ONE?!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! (MNWM PHOTO SHOOT)

I need some assistance family. I had an amazing photo shoot with the multitalented Nick Burnz (Black Algebra) about a month ago. Out of well over 100 shots, I have to narrow it down to 5, which eventually has to be narrowed down to one for the cover shot. I’m torn between these and would love to get some feedback from the massive.

SHAWN RENAE PHOTO SHOOT

Last April I had the opportunity to work with up and coming photographer Shawn Renae. Though she’s only been capturing moments in time for about two years, she is LIGHT YEARS ahead of the game. Her composition, use of lighting and the environment give her photos an edge and a “reach out and touch you” vibe. She’s worked with heavy hitters such as the Dungeon Family and Grand Hustle in addition to capturing sports events, live performances and such around the metro Atlanta area. Follow her on Twitter and Facebook.

FLY VIDEOS I’M FEATURED IN: THE OFFICIAL DEAD PREZ “BEAUTY WITHIN” VIDEO DIRECTED BY SHANNON MCCOLLUM

staHHr: all white everything

staHHr: code name Ma'at White Feather

Salute to all the natural beauties everywhere!! The images of beauty used in media for Moorish/Asiatic/Aboriginal/Indigenous/Original/Afrakan wombmen generally tend to lean towards a Eurocentric construct of beauty. Videos like this one are NECESSARY for balance, as well as a true and accurate representation of the full spectrum of divine, melanin-rich beauty; the blueprint for ALL wombman on the planet. Salute to deadprez, director Shannon McCollum, art director Jamila Crawford, photography director Ari J. Johnson and all the lovelies that participated. It was my honor to be included in this herstoric event. Love to all my sisters out there rocking it natural… I see you.. Keep doing youuuuuu bay baaaay!!:)
