LONG CAPTION
The man on the far right of this photograph and the city we’re currently in are big reasons for me being where i am today...Over 13 years ago i met @fashiongeekzo by finding his brand in the streets. The brand that he founded and still operates independently has been a staple in Chicago for over 15 years ! Zo has put on for the city for DECADES and by CHOICE never left the city to get hot, he got the city hot in other places. Because of guys like him i realized i could be from where i was and still be apart of an industry like this because we dictate the culture. He and @viclloyd introduced me to all the other Chicago generals when i was still in the streets ! They got me my first job in the industry, and were there before i had any hits. This man used to answer my jail calls and slept at my crib when he had free hotel rooms and 14 years later we working together,getting a global brand like  @puma scorching in the streets under @vegas_jones direction 🤞sometimes you just got to take a second to be appreciative and thankful of these moments  thank you @complexcon #ComplexconChicago

I preach empowerment because the guys i modeled my game after showed me that it doesn’t matter how big a check is if you don’t have any power, that’s why i chose my partners based of how much belief they have in me... @puma has put me on some of the biggest platforms of my life ! From global stages in Germany to the fucking Jumbotron at the Garden in front of the most important retailers in our country 🤯 I’m not a rapper, athlete,actor or artist...I’m just the best in my field at what i do and that’s good enough for them and for that im eternally grateful #BetOnYourself 🤞Puma Gang

I prayed for the day that our culture started uplifting minority women to the pedestal they should be on...if it was up to me women would be running the world and it saddens me how far we it looks like we are from that dream in today’s disgusting government...thank God for rays of hope like @rebecaleon who is single handily shifting Latin culture. I praise you daily queen  thank you for everything you do for us (and especially me) the world should be greatful for people like you.

They should teach a Harvard class based off your principals. The guidelines on loyalty has your name in the publishing credits...you the last of a dying breed. A lot of men claim to be “the realest” on earth but you’re 1 of about 3 that people actually believe. This picture feels like yesterday, but almost 8 years ago a young and hungry me told you that if given the opportunity i would bring the checks back to the crib 10 fold but instead of giving me a job you made me family and we been on a global paper chase ever since...thank you for helping me become the man i wanted to be. Happy birthday to the best trapper living....I KNOW WHO’S ALIVE !!!  #TheUnstoppableDuo @kingpush

 STORY TIME  i met this bright young man @jelucardo on twitter back in 2015 (if you scroll through these slides you’ll see the original tweet) and he had asked me how to flex on a college budget...and my response to him essentially was that being in college was the flex and everything else is irrelevant. That stuck with him and he put it on his nightstand. After dealing with some hardships he couldn’t return to his school ODU. So he took a semester at a cheaper school and worked his way up the Footlocker ranks till he was able to get back into the school he belonged. 3 years later he hit me up to invite me to his graduation, i was honored he mentioned that the only thing other than graduating that he wanted was to flex across the stage in some Visvims...so we made a deal. You get on the stage I’ll provide the dancing shoes 🤞 AND LOOK AT MY GUY FLEXED THE FUCK UP AT THAT CEREMONY SO PROUD OF YOU LITTLE BRO ! you gonna be special. To anybody reading this, the road less traveled isn’t glamorous but it always leads you to a brighter destination. Focus up and don’t be distracted by this IG shit, the real flex ain’t tangible.

My brother @jbalvin , what’s understood doesn’t have to be explained...these pictures describe our relationship pretty well. We’ve been through some crazy experiences the past 3 years and i want to thank you for allowing me to be apart of the ride. I get mad at you so much because you are too inclusive and you put yourself on the line for people who wouldn’t ride for you but i guess it’s something i have to accept because you have such a big heart. Happy revolution around the sun my g  keep kicking these doors down for the culture 🇨🇴
