Kokayi. What can I say? One of my favorite emcees, period. One of my favorite producers, period. One of my favorite singers, period.  My personal allegiance/bias to DC artists aside, I am a huge fan of his artistry, and appreciative of the fact that he’s been supportive of Nomadic Wax from day one. Whether it’s facilitating global exchanges or hosting emcees from abroad, Kokayi is down to break bread, jump in a cypher, advise on the complexities of signing record contracts, or just tell amazing tour stories. He’s a wild character, a father, a husband, a great friend; he's family. And if you are passionate for the true craft of freestyle, then he is someone you need to know. This photo was taken in DC in 2016 when he asked me to hook him up with some new press and promo photos. We always collaborate like this, with a mutual appreciation of each others' craft. This location is one of my favorite 'secret' DC locations. It's a beautiful red brick wall in an alley behind a house I lived in for 7 years in NE DC. Whenever I track back through old material, I can find many different photo and video shoots that I did in that alley. I always come back to it. 

This print was selected as part of the "Best of IGDC" photography gallery show and was on display at Blind Whino from Nov-Dec 2017.
