We had the good fortune of connecting with True and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi True, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Honestly I have always been interested in ownership once I left home for college and got a taste of life on my own. My father is also motivation as he has always had himself in boss situations like in real estate and other endeavors. Later in life a good friend of mine introduced me to the whole Nipsey Hussle movement back in 2010/2011. I didn’t know exactly how i would do it but I never shy away from opportunity and I wound up eventually figuring out how I wanted to proceed! It’s been an amazing journey and excited to continue!!!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think what sets me aside from others is the ability to mix eras with current culture. Everyone has a way they do it but sometimes it is forced. The more i continue to freely express myself the more comfortable it has become. I’m naturally passionate for my culture and it bleeds through my work. I tell folks all the time the way I do things may not be as professional as others but that’s ok I believe in myself and my work and not ashamed to let the world see it!!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Through hard work and focus and God’s grace … lately me and my friends … hmmm … well … as they say ‘we catch flights not feelings … lol lol … I been going to LA and Vegas a lot lately … i am in love with they culture and a few other things they have out there. I have been doing some real good networking in Cali for a whole other business venture me and one of my real deal friends i look at as a brother have started! SN@KS©️

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout my lady Tierra, my immediate circle they know who they are, and of course my family. But most importantly I’m a God fearing man so I must give him his honor! Over the years i have become better because of these people and I am proud and humble enough to always let them know just as they do with me! NO YES MEN OR WOMEN LOYALTY HONESTY HARD WORK DEDICATION!!! IRON SHARPENS IRON!!!
