Everything that is worth anything requires sacrifice. @_michelle_b_ and @why.rush came through and blessed us with good love, good vibes, some candid photos and videos, a few laughs, and lunch! Could not ask for anything more. Heartfelt thank you to the ones that sacrifice with us and for us. Building with @eternalblacknessart. A true labor of love. #thisisajobwelldone #redefinesuccess #onset #riseandgrind #quitingtime #day6 #themonopolizedproject #monopolized #howdidyouspendyoursunday #sundayfunday #hangingwiththecrew
Construction continues on day 11…does this scene remind you of a neighborhood from your present or your past? We all know this scene. Some of us only know from seeing it on tv or movies. Some of us have survived it. Some of us are still fighting to get out. Some of us will never leave. Some of us only see blight but I see all the beauty from all of the hoods around the world. This is "Baltimore Ave" but it also "West End," "SWAT," "9th Ward," "Magnolia," "Bankhead," "Bowen Homes," "Cabrini-Green," "across 125th street," "Queensbridge," "Project Row," "Saint John's," "Pork and Beans project," "The Tenderloin," "Nickerson Gardens," "Brewster-Douglass," "Butler Place," "The Carter,"…..etc. The list of hoods this could be goes on and on and on…#thisisbaltimoreavenue #ahoodnearyou #repyourset #rollcall #monopolized #themonopolizedproject #comingtoarealitynearyou #atl #westend #swats #seethebeautyaroundyou
