mr_shotts This guy right here...the big brother I've always wanted has known me for 15 years and then some. When I was sneaking out the house and making rendezvous to #brooklyn, my boy made sure I got back before the sun beat me. When I was too turnt up, he made sure my drunk ass was in a cab safe heading home. If I don't credit him for how he has enlightened me on #fashion as well as my own fashion sense I'd be doing him and myself a disservice. There is honestly not enough words to fully articulate how #dope he is, but I will tell you this; he is a #blessing upon my life and a constant reminder of the awesome people I have in my corner.
This isn't a belated #birthday since we're celebrating all month, but I had to take a minute to put ya'll on to the #dopeness in my life. #happybirthday @dannystylez1 #blessup

mr_shotts Anybody that knows me knows my #realitytv consumption is few and far between. But this #beautiful #spirit @mimifaust debunks any thoughts I had on the #genre. Not only was she super nice but she is super #real to boot.
It's not too often shoots are more #fun than #work but this one right here will go in the records. Mimi was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.

Currently out here in these showers of blessings.
I let the #rain wash away all the stressing.
With each drop, I count my own blessings.
I let the rain #renew, imbue me with #strength to take on life's testings.
So I never frown when that rain comes down,

I just sit and count the #blessings.

mr_shotts A lil bit of a slow start to the year #art wise but I'm back at it. Here's a preview of "Feeling It" with one of my favorite songs from @nasnyc & @damian__marley " #patience" playing in the background.

mr_shotts I am an over thinker. Be it my #art, my #love #life, #socialunrest, dinner, or #climatechange if there is a thought to be lost in; there is no doubt that Shotts is lost in it. The piece in the middle "Keep It In Perspective" is a #survivor of sorts; it's been drawn, erased, redrawn, crumbled, thrown away, rediscovered, and un-crumbled as if it needed to make it's way to #me in order to remind me of it's message: KEEP IT IN PERSPECTIVE

As I have gotten older #newyears resolutions have become a tad passรฉ, rather than go on listing the numerous things that I tend to not follow through with, I opted to just go with taking the #positive aspects of the year prior and apply them to the year ahead. Although everything is not always positive, I have learned that sometimes you have to take an" L" in order to know how to conduct yourself accordingly moving forward.
With all that being said, I honestly wouldn't be able to keep things in perspective if it wasn't for the #dope people in my life. From the #bae that tells me all the time "you worry about the wrong things" to my mommy who always says "It's never as bad as you think it is...press on" to the #creative circle that #inspires with their #work as well as their aspirations. I can say that I am #blessed to have people in my corner that not only put up with the complexities, but also love me for them.

When people #love you for #you....there is no other thing to do but be #great....and I think that is a perspective worth #sharing

#loveme #updated

I've been gone a while
Had to take a lil sabbatical
Methodically managing madness all the mean while
Had to take life a lil more tactical
I've been out and about
Up and down
Bothered and bewildered
just wanting to "be"
Serious #soul searching simply to see
I love me some me.
Found forging Freiendships
To be substantially more fruitful
Canceling condescending courtships
Found this to be substantially more meaningful
I've been out and about
Up and down
Feverishly flustered just wanting to "be"
Took a minute but I can say this with glee
I love me some me.
Babe #bro gone and #lord knows how I miss him
So now i waste none of my words,
When talking to my lil bro's
I only talk to teach to em.
I've been out and about
Up and down
Painfully Paused just wanting to "be"
Got on my knees , learned the true meaning of reciprocity
Showed em some love now I'm considered an OG (lol) yeah the hood love them some me
Promises Promises
Written on the stone of my #heart
Too scared to tell those promised
The Multiplying menaces
Tearing me apart
I've been out and about
Up and down
Cripplingly complacent
just wanting to "be"
The shadow of doubt gone, now I can see
That I can't lose sight
That I love me some me
Being taken for token
Felt like good pair of jeans "well worn in"
But I flipped it got to the heart of the matter and stripped it
Off my shoulders I brushed it..why?
Cuz im so Brooklyn (lol)
I've been out and about
Up and down
Feverishly flustered just wanting to "be"
But found and everlasting love in the love that is HE
Good #God Almighty
I #love me some #Me.
