Life PURPOSE. What is your lifes PURPOSE? Some find out early in life like Fab 5 Freddy.
Fred Brathwaite is his birth name, but around the globe he’s recognized as the Graffiti Artist famous for the subway spray painting done in 1979 with LEE Quinones (a tribute to Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell Soup piece). ART was the PURPOSE. Fab 5 Freddy went on to aid the facilitation of HIP HOP into America’s mainstream pop culture when he hosted YO! MTV RAPS – the perfect global segway into black culture…through Rap.
YO! brought black people (and many other races) from every corner around the world onto one insightful accord through Saturday morning joints hosted by yours truly: Fab 5 Freddy. An impactful and historical vien was opened and Mr. Brathwaite was at the helms. What a PURPOSE. HIP HOP: A HUGE cultural watermark that still moves the world on a whole — to one beat. A Grafitti Artist, turned Rap Show Host, turned Music Video Director, Documentary Producer, Co-exec Film Producing, Co Exec VH1 Hip Hop Honors Producing and now a YOUTUBE Curator… ART. He’s ba-aack.
A recent email from the Legend lead me to a YOUTUBE Curator page hosted by Fab 5 Freddy. Check out his new ART Concept on the video. It’s a jewel of a concept. He can’t help but pioneer and “host”…
I believe this young man started his career in his teens.
Time has graciously missed him completely by crease or seam.
Some are lucky to find one purpose while Fab has found many.
When it comes to pioneering opportunities – his name comes up plenty.
I’ve noticed that his eyes still gleam when he’s talking about his ART.
I fancy the Legends mind – I’m a digger of deep intellect & smarts.
Heightened knowledge is sound and Longevity is key,
PURPOSE‘ful in my Griot formats – post educated by Fab 2+3.
I bet’cha didn’t know that. Oooo Weee.
His Knowledgable PURPOSE has also influenced me.
