WILLY B’s SOUTHSIDE!

The YOUNITY Re-Fresh the Streets live street art collaboration is complete!!! I’m super tired. That wall took a lot out of me dammit! Working on a 15′ piece, going photo real was a bad move. What the hell was I thinking…I was wearing way too many hats this weekend;( From going, up and down the ladder, simutaneously working on the store front, talking to folks left & right, I’m surprised I didn’t just pass out on the sidewalk and screamed UNCLE!!! Bet no-one noticed. I think that’s why I’ve been tossing and turning all night this week, insomnia sucks. The perfectionist in me wouldn’t let me sleep. Anywayyyyy, had to vent. Super duper special shout out to our Younity Youth Jerely, and Talia who threw down with the can control. We are so proud;)┬á our Younity Crew Shana, Diana, Mama, and Samia for helping freestyle that store front. Jazzy jazz baby! I couldn’t have done it without ya. Especially Abeni Garrett for hooking up the video piece for this project I can;t wait to see it!!! Gracias MAMASITAS! Shout out to the owner of this entire spot, JERRY ( Official Hero Status! ) for being so humble and sweet with all us girls. Looking fwd to the Friday Jazz Jam sessions to close out the summer, SOUTHSIDE style. Mad love goes out to OUR people, the few left in this community who got smart in the 70-80’s and bought their property! This hood back then was one of NYC’s worst. Gentrifaction is inevitable, and we feel for you. THIS WALL IS FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
