These companies couldn’t care less about our health, whether we get cancer or if the food helps us evolve or overcome in anyway.

It will be interesting to see when the consumer makes the switch and how the market responds.

Big Sean talkin’ about his team + come-up
In addition to being one of the best graphic artists in our city, she is a genius painter who has been working towards mastering her craft for the last 18 years (she`s one of the last painters taught directly by the masters of the traditional chinese style).
Earlier this month we got together to discuss plans for her upcoming art show (Shalini will be performing live and the whole Desi Method team will be there to support).

It`s going to be dope seeing the community show her the love back.
The art show will be held at the Orpheum Annex on July 13.
Make sure to stay tuned here for the latest on the show.

“The king stands up, slays five at a time / soldiers fall, the gods sing without rhythm or rhyme
The brave drop to their knees, the end is in sight / the mind no longer clear and no reason to fight
Darkness consumes the room between here and truth / down on their last knee they look for you
…then they see the light to fight, DB9 on ice / free-flowin’ like he was born from night
Now the cycles over and we rise as kings / oblivious to defeat so we won’t rise again.”
"Conquer the mind, conquer the world”
