We made it, we made it to "Episode One Hundred" of the New York Said podcast. If you think that is something to sneeze at then my best advice is for you try it. It's not easy but it is very fulfilling.
Today's guest on the show is Shantell Martin. How cool is that? Very. We had the opportunity to stop by Shantell's studio at Mana Contemporary to talk about working with Puma, Kendrick Lamar, Tiffany & Co., living in Japan, making her way to New York, starting over, collaborations, finding the signature in her work, style, perseverance, and being nice.

Sir Spaz B and I bumped heads in Midtown over a CD offer. I declined, we talked for a few and it only made sense to invite him on the show. He tried to do the show on another day but I declined the offer and applied the pressure. Spaz buckled and graced New York Said with his time, energy, philosophy, wisdom and bunch of great stories. In this episode we talk about hustle, vision, stealing a car, him being a rebel, food vendors, robberies and his music. // Show Notes: https://www.newyorksaid.com/spaz/
Fuse Green and I met up at Pratt University out in Brooklyn to talk about his journey as an artist, the difference between an art director and a creative director, album covers, working with Spike Lee, Jay Z, Marc Ecko, identity and street culture.

Aria Nadège and I met in the Greenwich Village to talk about her music, sobriety, energy, crystals, performing, making mistakes again, staying connected to your body, saving lives, intuition, losing friends, a bunch of situations and making sure everybody feels comfortable in a room.
Heads up, at the end of the episode there is a acoustic performance by Aria Nadège Live at Pianos in the Lower East Side.
