Shout out to Gangsta Boo, my beautiful rapper buddy, for reminding me that seven years in the past lately, I used to be her entourage as she visited The Fader mag place of job, adopted via the Colour 45 track station.

Boo in 2013 dressed in my customized Gangsta Boo nameplate necklace and my silver YOLO rings on the Fader mag.

This may were the consult with the place the Colour 45 peeps assumed I used to be within the track trade and requested, “So what do you do for Boo?” and I — at a loss as to how to provide an explanation for my presence — awkwardly mentioned, “I am her jeweler?”  After which all of them moved clear of me at the bench, to cite Arlo Guthrie, and I vowed by no means to talk once more even though spoken to. Although possibly that trade took place yet again, bearing in mind I believed 2013 was once the yr we met actor Billy Bob Thornton. That grew to become out to be in April 2014. I used to be dressed in the similar jacket, and confusion about dates is a slow-fashion danger.

I used to be dressed in an Ossie Clark best on this 2014 image with Billy Bob at Colour 45. In April 2013, I used to be dressed in a black sweater. Case closed.

Anyway, I really like the way in which Boo carefully famous all of the outfit main points on this photograph she took of me hustling to catch us a cab in 2013. Pre-Uber days!

I nonetheless have the whole thing I am dressed in within the 2013 and 2014 footage excluding the denims. If the ones are black denims, as I believe, I gave them away. If they are in reality very darkish blue denims, I grew to become them into shorts. Who else unearths it atypical to take a look at footage from the pre-COVID-19 lifestyles, even if that lifestyles best ended final month? It is arduous to imagine that we simply WENT OUT like that. Find it irresistible was once no giant deal!
