ThoseFolks 2011 Recap

We started the beginning of 2011 with a trip to MAGIC with the DTA Posse.

We spent about a week back home in Venice before taking a trip up to Sacramento to film for the ThoseFolks video!

On the road again… Off to Sac-town!

On our way home we stopped by San Francisco to visit the Folks for a few days…

Our good friend “Black Daniel” was released from jail. Unfortunately he fell right back in not too long after… He should be home in May 2012!

Legendary Nate Dogg passed away at age 41. Rest In Peace!

We got these dope ass pictures from our Folks in Afghanistan! The sacrifices they’re giving for us, our families, and our future are very honored and appreciated.

I bought my first film camera and started taking black & white portraits…

Rogue Status/DTA filmed a “Day In The Life” of myself, Richard Massie.

Back to S.F. for some fun in the city!

BornxRaised was created and it was only necessary for us (ThoseFolks) to drop a collaboration!

Rest In Peace “Macho Man” Randy Savage!

We celebrated the 3 year anniversary of ThoseFolks!

We re-released our “Say No To Hoes” t-shirt for the summertime!

We held the release party at Brooklyn Projects on Melrose!

Bobby Hundreds hated on us by editing a photo of Jay-Ughh from CBG wearing our “Say No To Hoes” tee to make it illegible on the Hundreds blog.

We adopted a pig into our family of friends and named her “HAM” from ThoseFolks!

We met these cool ass people by the name of Crap Eyewear and got a collaboration in the works! TF x CRAP 2012!

The mini-ramp on Lincoln in Venice got destroyed thanks to the new Pastor at the church!

We took another trip up to the Bay area to film for our Those Folks video…

Every time we’re in S.F. it’s almost mandatory we visit Sacramento!

Just before Christmas we held very first art show!

We’re really looking forward to the new year and what it has to offer! Best wishes to everyone in 2012, it’s your time, our time, now let’s shine!

Another Great Night!

We held our very first art show this past tuesday at The Joint in West L.A. The show was such a great turnout and extremely fun night! Without a doubt, the show made this a December to remember!

We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the artists who displayed their amazing art work & to all the performers that kept the night going! (PreHistoric Crew, Tha Conclusion, Warm Brew, & Chill Black Guys) We’d also like to thank everyone who played their part and made the night possible.
