Tell us about your upcoming collections.
One of my pieces is based upon our black youth. The shirt says "freedom" meaning let them experience the world and question themselves instead of someone in their ear telling them what they should do with their life. It's all about making our own decisions whether it's good or bad.
My second shirt has the word "Nigga"with a quote from Tupac giving his meaning on that word. In this day in age, you can say the word "Nigga" anyday, all day. Back then, African Americans were all called that and now we use the word as a sense of pride. This shirt points out the evolution of the word and showing the distinction between the two meanings of "nigga" and the root word "nigger."
