August 5 2020

I left og note below from 2017. 2020 is like relaunch. I launched after leaving Apple Music, my record label, a buncha stuff. I wanted to see what I could do. Put myself to school, learn something new, clothing, do it myself. This was 2016 before everyone in the world could launch clothing lines automatically (I've now partnered to make things easier). My litmus test was if Hypebeast thought it was cool, I'd launch. Next was wholesale, when Colette wanted to carry me. I talked to Sarah on a Thursday and they announced the impending closure that Monday. I hit pause because I didn't want to be a new brand in the store during their victory lap when the family should take all attention. I thought about what kinda world I wanted, let myself disappear from the world. Committed. To something. Maybe it can be called art life. Three ish years later, I finished a new film, new music is out, my show is 70 episodes in, a book written I'm still deciding what to do with, and lots more. I love these clothes, and I love them even more now that I'm integrating them into films and so much more. 


Connection with others is the most important thing to me and all of my work builds into that.

I can't stand being compared. I work hard to be me. When someone says Oh you remind me of x I feel less-than. I must work harder creatively to avoid confusion.

Small Difference is the root of my creativity. A Freudian concept that explores how we deal with those closest to us. Nearby nations are more likely to war over resources. Similar people more likely to conflict over identity.

Expression and connection drive my decisions. I develop my worldview...who I want to surround myself to express to connect.

That's my clothes. My music. My videos. My events. My tech. Whatever else I've worked on. My language, carefully constructed semiotics built into a signal, sent to those switched to the frequency. If my expression is not distinct, it gets diluted and I miss my connections. That's why Small Difference matters.

I'm not the I don't give a fuck type. My clothes are my words and they say a lot about me. I care very much what you think. I put great thought into these messages, and I hope they connect with you.

I want these clothes to have a life beyond me, one built into your identity. Combine the words that are my clothes with others to create your own phrases. Your expression.

My greatest wish is that you create your own expression that comes back around to connect with me.
