for black boys who felt unheard

for black boys who felt unheard

 

thank you’s

thank you to Cade Zube for producing a body of work for me to share my story. you created a collection of sounds that pulled out memories and stories i never planned on sharing.

thank you Velly Slums, Ammorelle, Catherine Bentley, NilexNile, Burgie Streetz, Mickey Factz, Emmitt James, Maal Himself, Von Alexander & Ms. Lotus Fanhk. you all each molded and pushed forward the narrative i was aiming to create. thank you for your time and patience and input.

thank you Samer Ghani, Steven Robinson, & Mahdi Gransberry for capturing the visual elements of ‘Keefe’. i trust each of you completely. thank you for your time and bringing this vision to life.

thank you mom for moving here. thank you dad for never keeping me from here. thank you AK & Zae for making this place home when it felt nothing like it.

thank you to the black men who showed up for the album shoot. i always want to show US and represent US in the highest light. in happiness. in vulnerability. in love. in family. thank you for being a part of this experience and showing the world we are not what they see us as. we have voices. we will be heard. we will be loved.

thank you Milwaukee. thank you Keefe Avenue.
