J is for Junkie [Full Length]

Greedmont TV presents a documentary by Corey Davis on a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the “Living Room.” They share their stories and tell us what it’s like to battle with a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine. “Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high… Right around the time I was born, the mid 80′s, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were destroyed.” [Directed by Corey Davis]

Classic MB "Ankh" Tattoo

I took it wayyyy back to my tattoo roots again...I did my first ankh in 1993... They became very popular in the urban community around 1995... I took a break from doing them because they became a trend...but I decided to bring them back after tattooing Zulu out in LA and Erykah Badu promoting me on twitter... It might be a sign.... It was my very first tattoo.... 360 degrees

Step by Step: Greedmont Park design

Greedmont by @MiyaBailey [Process Art] “I wanted the letters to flow like weed smoke, I like to watch the smoke dance through the air… So I watched that pattern the smoke made as I read a few articles on Greedmont for inspiration and copied the trail of smoke on paper. I just let the pen move. No thoughts. Just smoke, ink and inspiration.” -Miya Bailey
