Congratulations to my friend @TheophilusLondon for a great album! The title, "Vibes" is self-explanatory. The album was executive produced by Kanye West. The artwork and photography was taken by icon Karl Lagerfeld. "Vibes" provides nothing less than high quality rhymes, rhythms, beats, and fashion! I first met Theo about three years ago at a Been Trill x Hood By Air brunch in New York. It was my first fashion week ever attended and I was so excited to be in the streets, seeing everyone dolled up for these fun-filled days of endless runways and fashion parties. Three years ago, Theo still had his solid silhouette of large hats and high end tops with jeans and boots. It was almost intimidating to meet someone with so much style, I knew I had to come correct. Since then, I noticed Theo in Karl Lagerfeld's "Little Black Jacket" book, attending runways in Paris, and on the regular television in car commercials... even the video presentation for Apple's iPhone 6 on apple.com. Theo has been a great mentor and friend and has always done everything with so much swag!
I had the opportunity to be apart of Theo's album, "Vibes". He called, wanting me to hear the album and while sitting there amazed by the records, he asked to make my voice one of the official "Vibes" sample voice overs. I had never done special FX, nor was I rapper (haha). Virgil Abloh and Benji B. then triggered all album sound-bytes. So if you listen to songs like "Water Me" and "Get Right" and hear a calm voices repeating "vibessss", you know that's me!
