Salute to Gabriel Teodros

Furthering his break from the archetypal rapper, his unabashed reflections on his insecurities impacted me deeply. Hip-Hop is driven by bravado, even in the conscientious circles. Teodros rejects this tone and instead offers a soberly candid voice void of self-aggrandizing pretenses.

Grizzlyshark #1

It is through our generously provided love and slavish devotion that these characters have been allowed to endure.

Turncoat #1

This is an unconventional sci-fi story, written as an old detective noir. It comes complete with all and layers of grit, grime, and hard-nosed fast talking characters straight out of the 40s that you would expect from that particular genre.
