This project is a highlight from my time at Translation.

In December 2015, just after moving back to NYC from LA, I got to travel to Santa Monica to capture Nas in his favorite recording studio reminiscing about the making of “Hip Hop is Dead” for the album’s tenth anniversary.


We partnered with Mass Appeal, and were lucky enough to work with director Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II) to create the four short videos about the making of the album. Check em out below.
