Last year I went to Cali with a couple of friends to shoot videos for the first two singles of my album
"Future Deutsche Welle" , which dropped last autumn. The videos already dropped, but the other day,
Steph (who filmed and edited the whole thing ) came out with this late but rad little trailer and
I just felt tlike sharing it with you. I don't share enough of my work here, but with all the social media bs
I do, I kinda just used this blog as a very straight forward non-reflected outlet for whatever is on my mind.
There is no method to the content, just madness and moments. Timing is irrelevant.
So, about the videos....there was no big budged nor a big filmcrew or even a script. None of the shit that
makes everything so unfree and complicated at times just a couple people with a vision. Probably the
best decision of the year. We endet up shooting some kind of a reality show/roadtrip with friends/short film,
wich we then divided into two videos. My friends Joey Elgersma & Stephan Wever directed it. Steph and
another friend , Paul Ward, did all the camera work and my girl Mayra Fateh helped out with planning and
production. It all stayed in the family and I'm still so proud of what we accomplished with so little.
I am a fan of each one of the people I worked with and still thankful. Also thank you's to my label Chimperator Department for their trust.
Sometimes you meet somebody and you instantly fall for them. Not in a romantic way, more in a kinda
unconditional and very entire way. It seems like their energy just gets in line with yours effortlessly. No big deal.
Yes new friends.
I am peforming in Miami tonight. This event hosted and curated by Mallence Bart Williams once again is an
amzing worldwide collaboration and I am proud to be a part of it.
"I'm possible showcases a multifced exhibition of paintings, photography and mixed media installations -
a collaborative effort between international artists and the Folorunsho Creative Collective - a group of former
street kids that emerged form a life in the streets of post war Freetown, Sierra Leone, who today personify
the transformation form - struggle for existence' to 'creator or one's own destiny', transforming the
impossible to I'M POSSIBLE, through their art work and designs. "
Following up a number of dope events and projects I feel like I am closing a chapter nd at the same time
opening a whole new one. MY first LARY performance was at the folorunsho event Mallence and I hosted
in Berlin, that's where #LARYlive began, thats when I met WIll Russel and my life took a whole nother turn.
So being here now after a number of other projects with Mallence , after touring, releasing an EP signing
to a record label and recording a whole album, I am right back here where it started in Berlin over a year ago.
Life has a funny way of going in circles. And me performing here tonight kind of fits the concept, as nobody is
gonna understand shit of what I am saying , so I better make em feel it. BURNING BORDERS BUILDING BRIDGES ,
all the way.
The exhibition is accompanied b a silent auction to benifit the Folorunsho Creative Collective
to ustain their ongoing education and remain self - sufficient through their creative work.
