Shoutout to No1 Dorante and Jwoods. Also shoutout to Val for linking us with good people. This video was done by Jay co-owner of Despierta aka intern aka lead folder (inside joke) .
We've been shooting with some talented people lately. Shoutout to our shooter Hanzo for capturing some awesome moments. Met hanzo thru one of our pop ups and ever since then its been nothing but dope vibes and fire content. Big shoutouts to 2am, Misel and KrimlifeCass.
Pulled up to cali and had a lot of fun! Linked up with some cool peeps along the way. Shoutout 21quest, raptographer, juan, ari and hype kills. Traffic in LA sucks so if your going somewhere make sure leave early. While we stayed in Cali we were in North Hollywood, which was kind of sketch but still chill. The food scene is really lit out there. We had some good ass Mexican food, forgot the name but shit was lit. In and Out is lit too depending on location. The one in Culver City smelled like rotten shit, so be careful. Favorite spot was Roscoes chicken. It is super lit in Inglewood !!! Also smoked like crazy, you can basically get weed anywhere. The most interesting spot we went to was literally a house converted into a weed shop. Overall we fuck with CALI hard and will go back in the near future.
A collection of film photos we shot throughout the year, enjoy ! Shot by John co owner of Despierta.

We recently linked up with two very talented people. Aimos who is a photographer from Queens and Ariana from Puerto Rico. The meet up spot and shooting location was at @community54 The homies blessed us with some community coffee that you can buy there right now and we recommend you ask Dragon to make you a hot apple cider too. You won't regret it. Check all of them out on gram @iartaimos_ @esaesella @community54
Working with Ray is always fun and amazing, hence his name @raymazing on social media. For this shoot we linked up with the lovely JamieSteffani. We wanted photos that we thought symbolized the company's attitude and feel. So we spoke to Ray about incorporating the streets, rooftops and apartment buildings to give it that NYC vibe. Thank you both for fucking with us and giving us dope photos!
