For your consideration: vote for @jacobyoffee and I for Emmys 2020. Because apparently they’re still happening?
Either way we are excited and very proud of the work we’ve done on these projects. Jacob and I met in Israel almost four years ago and, after quickly becoming friends, wanted to find a way to work together. We submitted for several projects that never materialized but we ended up developing a process that has allowed for great creativity. Our first official job was a commercial with Janelle Monae for the G.A.P. (shoutout to @mandrewkahn & @jordanpassman !!) and from there we've since worked on SEVEN shows together.
Over the last 3 years we’ve built incredible momentum and made some of the best music of our lives together and individually.
We are thrilled that we're in consideration for TWO emmy nominations for Netflix's KEVIN HART : DON'T F*CK THIS UP & Amazon's FREE MEEK. Both projects were an absolute joy to score, pushing us creatively in ways I never would have imagined.
We're excited for the future and hope there are many more opportunities to work with not only new filmmakers but continue to work with the amazing directors, producers and editors that we've met so far.

Empire State Of Mind, Pt. II
🎹 by Alicia Keys
Grew up in a town that is famous as a place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean
If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say
Seeing my face in lights or my name in marquees found down on Broadway
Even if it ain't all it seems, I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby I'm from New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York
On this day, Nas released ‘It Was Written’, the follow up to his groundbreaking “Illmatic”❗️
This album included the Lauryn Hill featured “If I Ruled The World” and “The Message”, classic songs in an album that has been constantly debated whether it lived up to the expectations after his classic debut.
