Theophilus London, Asap Rocky, Kitty Cash, Om’Mas Keith, Michael Uzowuru and this is all in one roll! Music and musicians are incorporated into your life is this a product of having them as friends?

I think it is a product of both. I have cultivated a lot of my friendships through work and having amazing synergy and building on that. Other people I have known for years and it is coincidental that they work in music and now I do as well. I love it! My friends are extrmeely supportive and I love them for that.
