September 20th, 2009 the opportunity came up to kick it in the studio with J. Cole and the Homie Mez ( one of the talents behind the StartYourOwnRebellion project I posted a few weeks back) My motives were to talk to Cole about his experience growing up mixed race in North Carolina. But, there's something about being in the studio that's intoxicating. The creative energy and the focus on the art derrailed me from my mission and inquiry about self identiy, cause there it was, and I was just prompted to live in that moment.
Then, Cole was recently signed to Roc Nation, Jay-Z's new lable. But it the studio that night it was only 3 homies, time and creativity. Thanks for letting me capture the moment fellas.
