Brielle, Fitz & I decided to grab a few photos of the Mechanicsburg sunset before we all left town. Unfortunately, we were running behind, as always, (bc Brielle sleeps in til like 3PM), so we ended up pulling over randomly on the side of the road near Brielle's neighborhood and hopping over a small "No Trespassing" sign. East coast.
Featuring: Brielle & FItz

The sunset from my backyard in Central PA.
December 18, 2016
Cruised up to Bloomsburg with Matt for Smitty's graduation. Matt got us kicked out of the bar for "harassing the DJ," after requesting Migos - 'Bad & Boujee' four times lol.
December 13, 2016
Drove down to BWI to pick up Fitz and stopped at a few parks along the way. Didn't end up getting any photos I'm in love with, truthfully, central Maryland is not particularly photogenic. I ended up trying to find an abandoned church in the woods, but after about an hour of wandering in the freezing cold I had to give up. Maybe next time.

The homie Trey is launching his new clothing brand, Carton Outerwear (@cartonouterwear) at the start of next year, so we took the streets to get some promo content. We originally meant to head into the LA River canals under the 5th street bridge, but they were doing construction and security kicked us out only seconds after we entered the property. Nevertheless, the jackets are looking fresh and some random homies hooked us up with a prop cop car to shoot with.
Featuring: Trey, Felly, GYYPS, Zoë, Easway, Henry & Trip Carter.
December 11, 2016
Linked up with Roman Merlino for a quick shoot in the AM. Unfortunately, the actual park at Lake Hollywood appeared to be fenced off, so we only found a few cool locations. Next time tho.
December 9th, 2016
Caught up with Sarah on our balcony, good times.
December 8, 2016
Birdie and I cruised downtown to try and snap some photos on top of the LAUSD garage rooftop (shoutout Korey), but unfortunately it was locked. So instead, we hit the City Hall Observation deck for the sunset, but ultimately the large pillars and tall railings made it really hard to get the photo we were looking for. On the way back to the car we got on top of the LA Times parking garage and snapped some of my favorite photos of DTLA. lit.
December 7, 2016
I think this is one of my dopest shoots. Hit up Love on a whim and we cruised downtown randomly on the lookout for some spots. Hit Lil Tokyo and Chinatown, before hopping out of the car to snap some photos of the tunnel leading to the highway from downtown. Wild stuff.
December 6, 2016
Grant (YoG$) and I hit Palos Verdes to grab some photos while doing a short hike. I think the paths are eroding away because that hike gets significantly more perilous every year. But we got some fire of the sunrise and the ocean, and a good workout. yuh.
December 4th, 2016
We decided to go out. Shoutout to the H20 Club's party at surf and the KXSC event. No idea who the bands playing were. Oh well.
Featuring: Joe & Cara.
December 1, 2016
Kicked off December with a quick sunset shoot with Willy B. The homie played some unreleased heat and we hit the Venice Beach canals to grab some shots. Check out his music here. Praying the cold California weather ends soon.
Featuring: William Bolton.
November 30, 2016
Due to Brielle's extremely later Uber yesterday, we decided to cancel our DTLA shoot and take it down to San Pedro. Getting down the large hills that separate this area from the public park had me breathing heavy, but it was worth it. The sunset occurred around 4:30 which has got to stop.
November 29, 2016
Just kicking it at Ellendale. Brielle's uber took like an hour to get to USC so we missed the sunset, but the squad rolled thru instead. Gang.
Featuring: Breezy, Tyler & Jamie.

May 24, 2016
Spent a few days in Seattle after the show. Thanks to the Willis family for hosting me and Zoë for showing us around. The space needle was a lot smaller (shorter than the arch in St Louis) than I had imagined. Fun facts.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS & Zoë.
May 22, 2016
We cruised up to Seattle after filming the Desert Eagle music video for the next stop on the tour. Seattle ended up being a crazy show; We were told multiple times that are ticket sales were slow, but we ended up selling out at the door. It's lit.

We pulled up on Lubbock Texas with a vengeance. What a time. Accidentally shattered a marble countertop and we nearly slept through our flight. Shouts out to Tay, Jamie & Sauve for driving over.
April 22 - 24, 2016
Turns out I'm not a huge Coachella guy myself. Me and Kaymann are not great at camping, and the end result was decently embarrassing. We basically went through two tents and an EZ-Up in 72 hours. I was not built for desert living.
Featuring: Birdie, Zoë, Vince Staples & Rae Sremmurd.
April 16, 2016
We cruised through Gabe's hometown of Mountain View and hiked for a few hours before playing a packed out show at Stanford. The photo of Fel in the tree ended up being used, as a watercolor, for the cover of the Young Fel EP. Shoutout Bay Area.

First stop on the east coast at the Middle East in Boston. Fel played here two years prior, opening for Madlib, and received a cold shoulder from the crowd. It was surreal returning for a sold out show of 650 on the downstairs stage. Shoutout Riley for flying into Boston for literally 12 hours to see the show, real friends.
March 24 & 25, 2016
Felly & GYYPS play Hermosa Beach and Big Bear with Shwayze.
March 5 - 20, 2016
I originally intended for these polaroids to be available in a print book that would be released at the conclusion of the tour. Unfortunately, as the quantity of polaroids I was carrying around continued to increase, the odds of these ever making their way into a photo book decreased substantially. Hope y'all enjoy 'em here though, behind the scenes look at tour life.
Featuring: GYYPS, Trey, Felly, Kyle, Tay, Gabe, Adrian, Danny, Jamie, CJ & Riley.
March 10 - 20, 2016

Thanks to all the homies that flew out for spring break too, micro & sixth gang.

Followed up the San Diego show in Santa Barbara in preparation for the 7th King Tour. We decided after this show, that only one of the guys with shoulder length hair was allowed to be shirtless on stage at any given moment. We got pretty lit. Shoutout Zayla's mom for the Quinta. Ended up finding a lit hike on the side of the highway that got us back to SC a few hours later than planned.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Riley, Zayla & Gabe.
February 13, 2016
Felly and GYYPS open for Shwayze at the Music Box in San Diego in anticipation of the 7th King Tour. Adrian and co took a 2 hour uber and their driver turned up with us. Some random guy claimed he was an executive from Oakley and wanted to sponsor us. Instead, we slept on the ground and Adrian got accused of crimes he didn't commit, twice. Stay lit San Diego.
Featuring: Felly, GYYPS, Adrian, CeeJay, Riley, Gabe & Trey.

January 21, 2016
This was one for the books. Two days before the show, we find out we've moved somewhere between 100-200 tickets, about half the size of the smaller stage Empire Control Room offers. Dismayed, we nevertheless hop on a flight and head out to ATX the morning of the show. Kyle met up with us at the airport, which was lit. I believe this was the first La Quinta we ever hit. Upon arrival, the homie/promoter Tre, informs us that we've sold out the smaller stage and tickets have started moving. By show time, we've actually sold out the 800+ cap outdoor stage, with a line that's wrapped around the corner and a 100+ fan meet & greet.
After the show, Adrian rolls up and takes the squad to a lit club and we leave Austin the next day, stoked for SXSW.
January 11, 2016
Crazy night here, got to head to Prince's house in Burbank with Fel, GYYPS & CJ. Met Prince, CeeJay and the homie Adrian. Fel said "this shit fire hydrant!" Who knows what will come of it?
