#FBF Back many months ago when I first asked my boy @justjet_ for private lessons and we cooked this up real quick for practice purposes ! Animation was like a textbook I’ve always kept in my bag, but only skimmed thru. Always been a fan of how Jet moves, but even more impressed by how great of a teacher he is. He broke down exactly what’s going on, dissecting how and where I’m hitting and stopping movements🔍. S**t is definitely not easy !! In fact I have a new level of respect for it✊🏽✊🏽. Still practicing, but I did make a combo inspired by concepts I’ve learned from him weeks afterwards (swipe ⬅️). Get into @justjet_ man, he’s the dude (duh). Also, what compelled me to ask for privates in the first place stems from some of my actual students like @jchillen_ and @jimmyle___. They really went out of their way to hunt me down, searching more from me beyond the classroom, and asking all the right questions. I was more than happy to oblige, and it’s left me more motivated as a teacher and a student. To grow, one must let go of pride. Do good things others aren’t willing to do, and 1) you’ll surprise yourself and 2) you’ll eventually inspire others to do the same !! #whatitsabout🔃

Swipe ⬅️: I save most every tagged photo/video or anytime I happen to see @bnga_ on anyone. Contrary to belief, I’m not too-cool-for-school to say that I’m a nerd when it comes to those things and still immensely flattered by it 🤓. But I don’t just want to please you, but offer you fresh vibes, not JUST “fan merch”. When it comes to my #bnga collections, I’ll never know when creativity hits. I prefer to keep observing the world, and go from there. But how the kimonos, monestary caps, O.D. branding race tees, vintage Rap tees, tarot card designs, construction tshirts, etc. came about ... I mean damn, we were kinda on to something. Learning to be more efficient with it though, thanks for your patience and support. stay tuned, you know we always bring that 🔥🔥🔥🔥 anyway !! | bngabrand.com

| Swipe⬅️ | Ahhh @asia_camp. It's second year, and its already grown exponentially from last. Proud of the homie @dimoonzhang, and also very thankful for you bringing me out here, and amongst a fine group of people I'm honored to teach alongside with ! Great moments with all y'all, and many "hashtag" inside jokes to write if one were so inclined 😆. My summer tour is DONE !! This was a run to remember, and by all accounts, VERY energizing. #Malta #Poland #Japan #Thailand. Ready to tackle the rest of the year's goals !! #moreworktobedone #morelifetobelived | 📹1️⃣: "smoke break" chance the rapper. 📹2️⃣: "groovy" future, @akoswag828 @reina_queenme @kaz_hataboy.the.fire @kaita_the_hataboy (collab with @bam_martin)
