Today is only Tuesday (I meant wait, it’s just not a Tuesday, it’s TuckerTuesdays “Duhhh”), and I feel as if between Sunday and now has been about two weeks.
Like I said last week on TuckerTuesday, I look forward to sharing with you on this day to my website. In the weeks to come, you’ll see the business days slowly fill up with postings to the blog covering various topics / showcasing new work and products. The thought of everything that needs to be done is enough to make me want to explode, but inorder for me to get on track to feed my piggybank 100k there’s a lot to do. In the main time, I’m using Tuesdays to write people who wants a heart to heart with me; as mentioned yesterday on my Instagram (IG: dtuckerofficial) post, I’m starting to meet a ton of people around the world and it’s better for me to communicate here with those who wish to stop by and say hello.
Doing this, I get to write back to who ever leaves a comment and we can keep in touch that way you can’t say, “oh Dwayne you’re getting to popular to keep in-contact”, or the famous “you got rich then switch” (which I’m oh so far from)…you get my drift; I’ll be stopping by here on Tuesdays and you’re invited, always, to pass by and say “What’s up DT!”
Let’s Start Today’s Posting Below (Because I write a lot)
I’ll be covering (briefly) three topics. The first, about an open letter to Bobby Shmurda that’s floating around the internet, second & third, about two new partners that we’re working with.
An Open Letter To Bobby Shmurda by Imani Brammer - As a musician, as a black man, as an educated human, there are a lot of thoughts running through my mind when I read Imani’s article. A friend of mine shared the link on one of my social outlets, I read it and if you choose to as well, I recommend you to watch MikeLarry2010′s YouTube video as well; the video is of Bobby Shmurda’s showcasing his performance at Epic Records.
Marcia mentioned to me the other day about the violence that was going on in his songs. Then, reading Imani’s letter, I’m like “hold up, I wonder how many other people out there is taking note of Bobby’s content.”
Imani, If you’re reading this. Firstly, I enjoy the way you wrote the article. It’s easy to read and your writing holds one attention beautifuly. Just from nerd to you, thank you for writing that way. Now on to this letter, I agree with everything you’re saying there. In the conclusion of your post you mentioned he needs therapy, the only thing that will help him and others alike is simply experiencing the world.
You mentioned “fuckry”, I couldn’t help but to laugh when I read that because my home country is the Bahamas. It was at that point I started to think about the kids back home, the ones who are playing this song day in day out….Jah help.
In my teens, everything you wrote would be a bunch of blah blah shit to me, however, as an adult I couldn’t agree more. But I’m thinking, in my younger days, with my temper, with my desire for a better life, with my desire to see the world, to have some nice shit, just to feel self-worth, I would have done the same shit.
I do know the power of the internet, so I’m hoping that anyone else who comes across this article, if you’re the one needing what I’m about to say, please apply accordingly.
Stop with all the fuckry. Simple as that.
Anybody could “go dumb”, anybody who’s capable of utilizing their index finger can squeeze the trigger and leave a few holes. I repeat, and this time on some extra real shit, stop the fuckry.
All we need is good vibes in the world man.
Look, it’s hurting me that I have to cover this topic as the year ends approaching 2015. A friend of mine told me the other day, “Remember that you don’t owe a nigga nothing”. I think about that time to time to explore what that really means….If you have people like Jay’z, Kayne, hold-up, we have the President…and things are still as the are, I’m (D. TUCKER) not going to live my life preaching to a generation…Dr. King did that and look where we at…and look what happened to him….man…I said it in my track The Sketch – “My hold plan is to show you, how I do it, and hopefully, it motivates you, and show you, that you could do it to.”
Despite me not wanting to dedicate my life to preaching to the generation, I can’t help but to brush the topic time when you listen to some of my tracks.
People want a dance, people want something that’s going to make them want to rage, no body wants to listen to the content, music like Bobby’s get people hype…it’s sad that it’s like this but it is the way it is…hopefully I find a new method to change the fuckry as I explore the industry…..
Anyway, closing that topic, a couple years ago I wrote some content to help cure the nonsense out there….who knows if it will ever pass 1 million views, or if it will ever really change lives by the masses…but it’s there: Listen To This
If you’re following me on SnapChat (dtucker305) you watched the #BTS of a shoot that we did for The Fadedxx.com. I’m in my final days of a terrible cold; I say this because even without a cold I shouldn’t be in the front of the camera as often as I’ve been recently. But I already explained my piggybank situation so you know what it is.
The shot above was a quick-random one for me to share with you here today what’s going on. There’s still a lot of deal closing to do but as of now we shot new images for The Fadedxx and hopefully with in the weeks to come I’ll have some more amazing news to share with you about me with The Fadedxx; fingers are crossed.
The shirt I’m wearing I found appropriate to pick up because I’ll be shooting / working with a ton of models over the next few months and well yeah…..if you don’t get where I’m going with it then too bad for you… perhaps you’re the protagonist in “A Basic Barbie World.”
Pop Your Pup Shirts Are “Paw-some”!
Danny snapped this photograph of Onyx on my shoulder at the perfect moment.I love everything about it and it seems as if a few of you on Instagram do as well. For me it’s, Onyx cleaning his paw, the Rocky poster in the back that makes me think of boxing gloves, paws for boxing…blah blah…then the camo-hat ties it in (which is also from Fadedxx.com btw)….finally, a shirt that can’t simply can’t be defeated.
Yes, the brand is, Pop your “PUP”, but Onyx is seriously like a little puppy, as most SnowBengals are; therefore I put him on a shirt. It’s not restricted to Pups, if you have a horse that you want to send in I’m sure they’ll make it happen.
Getting a shirt from Pop Your Pup is really simple, all you have to do is send them a really good image of your pet then they do some magic on their end and send you back an amazing shirt better yet, “Mans Best Shirt”. The quality is…just order one and let it surprise you like it did me.
Btw, I’m not saying this because we are now official photographers for Pop Your Pup. They are honestly awesome.
