Off-Brand Loyalty

Back at it with that music dawgs. I somehow got the phrase Off-Brand Loyalty in my head while getting off the F train at the Delancey Street station. From that point on I knew it was a song I had to create. So that’s just what I did.

 

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Verse 1
Yeah I rock Polo but it got an Extra L in
Not an Extra Large, they jus didn’t check the spelling
Got a Bathing Ape that’s afraid to use soap
But nobody gotta know, I can’t afford to look broke
Gotta stay fly, in any given situation
Rock the knock-offs, you know the cheap imitations
But, I don’t usually share this information
A little loose, what I’m wearing isn’t custom
The pants I bought, always gotta readjust ’em
‘Cause it’s missing a zipper and a button
I hit the thrift shop, don’t got diamonds in my wrist watch
Fake it ’til you make it because you gotta floss in hip-hop
I’m doin’ it like this I hit Canal Street
To get them four striped sneakers for my brown feet
The bottom of my foot looks like ground beef
I walk a lot a yo I really get around chief

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Verse 2
(Excuse me is that Coogi?) It is if that’s what you see
In the Eye of the beholder like beauty
Well then sure absolutely, by the way you a cutie
Are you a model, because your Couture Juicy
At least that’s what it says on your jogging pants booty
Beg Pardon, Are those rubies in you jewelry
Struck by all that gleams, but nothing’s what it seems
Like the city never sleeps, but still the city of dreams
For every pot there’s a lid, every plot has a scheme
So you and me baby we a perfect team (You Sure?)
At least the way that I see it (is that right)
Babygirl I guarantee i (believe it)
Tell Me what you want girl I got it
Anything you need girl I promise
Shopping sprees at Neman Marcus
Girl I got these jeans at Target

When All The Clothes You Purchase You Get Selected Imperfect
Stretch Dollars to Their Furthest but You Still Know How to Work It
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
When all the clothes you wear go a hole or a tear
And you Rock it like, “Yeah, that’s supposed to be there!”
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty
You got that Off-Brand Loyalty

Meh the Vote!

So, The Black Guy Who Tips, among my favorite podcasts, requested a logo for this idea for a political campaign to motivate people to vote in these 2016 party  primaries. This campaign is targeted at those in the electorate who feel dispassionate about any of the candidates they have to choose. from. We know we earned the right to vote through the hard work and efforts of our ancestors in the civil rights movement. So I whipped up a design.

Bottled Up!

The Water Crisis in Flint Michigan is a little unbelievable. I’m working on a song to vent my anger.
Been trying to figure out the whole trap sound, I’m too old school. There’s a sound effect of bubbling water and deep bow strings reminiscent of the jaws theme.

Here it goes.

(Intro)
A yo! It’s critical out here right now
America’s got a sickness
I think there’s something in the water
Oh, you want clean water?

(Verse)
It’s Bottled Up!
We talking ’bout brown water
For brown sons and brown daughters
Stagnant lake water
Where you wouldn’t even wash your face water
Have a sip, this is how racism tastes water
Make you believe the white man invented AIDS water
Evil, the way they did Tuskegee and shit
Or, maybe politicians just greedy and shit
They like, “These broke niggas don’t vote,
Lazy, threw ’em in the Flint River they wouldn’t even float.”
Big bully Business
Kick a town when they down
Industry done gone
Them jobs ain’t around
So, bail out a bank
But let the city drown?
Reduce a citizen to a budget line item
Look to you for leadership, and you sucker blind side ’em
Blood on the leaves, man there’s blood in the water
The blood’s on your hands
Lead pipes led lambs to slaughter

(Refrain) X2
Can’t keep it bottled up
Gotta Bathe in Bottled Water
Politicians Poppin Bottles
Whole System Out Of Order 

(chorus)X2
Wait, hold up
Let me get this straight
Ain’t Flint Michigan
In these United States
Turn on your faucets
All you see is toxic waste
Not just a tragedy
It’s a national disgrace

(Refrain) X2
Can’t keep it bottled up
Gotta Bathe in Bottled Water
Politicians Poppin Bottles
Whole System Out Of Order

MLK Birthday Turn Up

Sadly there are real events for Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday celebration. In my moment of weakness I made a flyer for one myself.

Some Famous Mugshots in progress

I working on some submissions for a t-shirt contest, on cracked.com, my usual source of creative inspiration. This contest is for mugshots for mugs of people that are heroes that have negative attributes or have outright criminal/amoral behavior.

So I initially was going to work on Obi Wan Kenobi, but someone already did a Star Wars themed one, then I decided on Doc Brown from Back to the Future. I like the way it’s coming  out, here’s a sneak preview and my abandoned Old Ben Kenobi.

Flame ON!!!

So, I was listening to the Nerdpocalypse Podcast and they were discussing somethings about the New Fantastic Four movie starring Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara. Michael will be portraying the Johnny Storm, Human Torch, brother of Sue Storm, the Invisible Girl/Woman. They got into how the cosmic rays give them their powers and how they manifest in different ways based on personality traits. Sue Storm was adopted by a black family and maybe that’s why she feels withdrawn and shy. Micah a co-host of the podcast jokingly suggests that since Johnny Storm is being played by an African-American, it would be funny if his heat powers manifest because he is a rapper who spits “hot fire.” So I made this, because it amused me.

Spits Hot Fire
