Today progressive photographer and cutting edge digital media specialist Comrade Chris of @Akashic_Photos is breaking the mold with a one of a kind art gallery.

Shedding light on visual artists and curators, Comrade Chris’s new gallery features a variety of amazing work across the Hip-Hop world. In addition the gallery also has a built in recording studio and cannabis dispensary – the first of its kind ever.

“I have been on the forefront of NFT art and I turned that work into a crypto gallery. The gallery which is a collaboration with Steve Lobel and his partners, has combined the first dispensary, Hip-Hop gallery and recording studio in one location – there’s never been anything like it,” Comrade Chris said.

“Currently I’m working on merchandising art work, doing deals for DMX’s estate, all while being a dad, and executive content managing a boutique. I’m also helping artists get to the next level, so I’m staying busy.”

Asserting that he is one of the best to ever do it when it comes to freelance photography, Comrade Chris spoke about how he has captured some of the biggest moments ever in Hip-Hop.

“I have managed to capture some of the biggest moments in California Hip-Hop in the last four to five years and that includes unreleased pictures from the only concert that Nipsey Hussle headlined before he died,” Comrade Chris said.

Comrade Chris was bred in Houston but resides in Los Angeles California, and built his empire alone after moving to the West Coast without knowing anyone.

“I’m from Houston Texas but I live in Los Angeles. I came to California and I didn’t know anyone but I had some photography skills and I was able to make a career for myself out here,”  Chris explained. “I want people to respect the shooter. There’s a whole lot more that goes on behind the artwork than just clicking a button”

10 YARD BULLET

  1. National Anthem: Francis Scott Key, the writer of the anthem, penned racist verses within the anthem itself. He was a slave owner that said blacks were inferior and died a supporter of slavery fighting against abolitionists.
  2. Discrimination in Hiring: Teams have taken a chance on 21 first time white head coaches and only 1 first time minority head coach, the gap was an identical 21-1 nearly two decades ago.
  3. Guaranteed Contracts: There are no guaranteed contracts for NFL players even though the sport is the most dangerous of the 4 major spectator sports in America.
  4. Brain Damage: A $1 billion settlement was reached by the NFL and retired players. The NFL lied and hid information about concussions. Many NFL players have committed suicide due to related injuries.
  5. Domestic Violence: The NFL holds arbitrary policies on domestic violence against women and the enforcement of those policies.
  6. Physical Assault: 44 current players accused of rape or physical assault remain on NFL rosters.
  7. Bankruptcy: 80% of NFL players are either bankrupt or go broke within three years of retirement, regardless of how much money they make in their career.
  8. Help Future Athletes: Tommie Smith, John Carlos, Craig Hodges, Jackie Robinson, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and Muhammed Ali have been victims for making silent protest or speaking out for social injustices.
  9. Support: Colin Kaepernick and other players like him in their protest for freedom, justice, and equality.

Take A Stand: The NFL should realize the value of its African American Viewers and players by caring about these social justice issues. #BOYCOTTTHENFL
