Legends Only: Los Angeles Vol II
“My music career brought me here 10 years ago, but I ended up starting my art journey, having a son, and in turn, truly began to live my purpose. L.A. has changed my life in every way possible! It’s mind-blowing to think one location has that type of power, but we all have a connection with this city. L.A. has birthed so many of the most iconic people & pop culture moments that connect us all. I wanted to create a special drop that celebrates just how much our city’s culture captivates the world. This series is a celebration of our community, but also the inherent power of pop culture, and how it connects people through shared moments of admiration, inspiration, and revelation.”
