After a lengthy #hiatus, #dmvstandup #dmvstandupwewinning will pay #tribute to the fallen artist #TakeOff @yrntakeoff, in the form of an entire #magazine dedicated to him. Which, chronologically exhibits the quiet, but effective, meaningful, purposeful & determined life he lived, loved & enjoyed 🚀🚀🚀
After this horrifying & senseless execution went viral; coupled with the gruesome scenes of other great talented artists, like: #FBGDuck @real_fbgduck063, #YoungDolph @youngdolph, #KingVon @kingvonfrmdao, #Mo3 @hotboymo3, #PNBRock @pnbrock, #XXXTentacion @xxxtentacion, #PopSmoke @realpopsmoke so easily flooded the internet, I decided to back pedal on my efforts, task & assignment for a few ticks, while I try to grasp the concept of all these heinous deaths, that merely trend for a couple of days, then on to the next smh 🕊️
I’m numb, stagnated & baffled by it all & actually fearful to even highlight our babies from the #DMV, as they’re outta the way, for the most part & not a product of the “industry” chaos that’s been occurring & plaguing our culture, hearts & minds for the past 3 years. I said to myself, I’m good on trynna get them noticed, onna larger scale, just leave them be for now. Then, I wrestled with the fact that my promise; to do everything in my power, to help them level up, would be returned to me void & I had to weigh the odds, for which I decided to stick to the former for a while & refrain from showcasing local artists, until this irresponsible violence passes over 😩
In the interim, I’ll use the time to feature, showcase & pay tribute to the talented Kings & Queens, everywhere, who have left us too soon.
As always it’s still #SeeYouAtTheTOP
