Black daddy slim "No Hennessy" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)


" I'd see him float around the town in the Old school"  - Ammbaataa

Black daddy slim and I (Ammbaataa) actually worked at the same establishment for years not knowing much about the other except for the things we were being hired to do at said establishment. Logistically, we were different areas of the location so it wasn't crazy that we hadn't really connected.  I'd see him float around the town in the Old school, I had a feeling he was an artist or a creative chiseling on some projects somewhere tucked away. We officially met at a Drums & Ammo X Barbaydose "Paradigm Shift" show at the DNA merch table where Black daddy slim copped a Yellow Drums & Ammo trucker. We switched contacts and I was slowly introduced to Black daddy slim world of Art/Music/Photography/Clothing (@akerele.brand) and I'm sure there's something I'm missing. His World his gritty and raw but sophisticated at the same time showing a side of Oakland that fuses Soul with the Punk DIY approach. We got some things cooking so follow Black daddy slim and stay up to date with the movements. Here's some words directly from Black daddy slim on his latest "No Hennessy". #DNA
