One of the projects I've been working for the past few months has been artwork for Maybach Music Group's R&B artist Masspike Miles. And today marks the release of that project - his album Say Hello To Forever. I was fortunate enough to design the artwork and also illustrate a six page comic that was written by Masspike. I'm not the only one responsible for the artwork though. Proph Bundy was responsible for the cover of the album and helped with putting the digital booklet together as well. The album itself includes features from Raekwon, Fred The Godson, Wiz Khalifa, and others. So make sure to do yourself a favor and buy the Deluxe Version, which includes the comic I drew and two bonus songs, on iTunes!

In the first installment of BLAT! Pack's JYoung The General new #TheMicCheck series, he unleashed a remastered track from his Black History Year Vol. 1 tape just right for today's celebration of MLK Jr. Day.

Oh poor blog. I know, I know. I haven't been too kind to you. Blame your cousin Tumblr for its love for topless women and inspirational Wiz Khalifa and Drake quotes. But I'm back and I'm gonna be better to you I promise. I promise *calmly strokes Macbook screen* In fact, let's start this off right. I think it's time we dump some delayed artwork and some sneak peeks at future projects. And...GO!

I'll do the rest soon though) SKETCHES See, I didn't forget how to love you, art blog. Who loves ya, baby? This guy right here does.
