We got commissioned by Beyond Book Publishing to photographed the cover of "DEAR FATHER: The cycle of pain by J. IVY.
J. Ivy is a true pioneer and trendsetter who’s bridged the worlds of hip-hop and poetry through his appearances on HBO’s Def Poetry
and his collaborations with Kanye West and Jay-Z. But throughout his
success, he carried with him the pain of being abandoned by his father
and growing up in the tough neighborhoods of Chicago’s South Side.
So he sat down with pen and paper and processed his pain the only way he knew how—through poetry. The resulting poem, Dear Father, became his vehicle of forgiveness and healing. It is a pivotal poem that has touched and inspired the lives of millions.
Fused with his signature raw lyricism and street consciousness, J. Ivy’s
memoir shows what it takes to deal with your emotions before your
emotions deal with you. His story is personal yet universal, and will
inspire others to channel whatever pain they have experienced into their
own powerful gift of expression.

Today we are featuring the GOALS hat by EIGHTNEIGHTY. The concept started from a conversation with a bunch of friends planning to invest our money on a large scale project. Out of nowhere in the middle of the conference someone said "We all have Goals". Something about that statement stuck with me. I brought the concept to my design company "Eighty Labs" and hence we thought to launch a hat wear co. "GOALS" we are firm believers of quality over quantity. As time progresses look for special packaging and limited edition GOALS trading cards with each purchase.
