“I’m on a mission that n****s say is impossible. But when I swing my swords they all shippable. I be the body dropper, the heartbeat stopper”

Tracy, Genix, and I went out for a late night shoot, armed with a bunch of weapons and compact discs. Pressed for time, we had to get into full ninja mode with quick wardrobe changes in plain view and back at the car, avoiding patrolling security, and acting inconspicuous while cop cars passed by, all the while giving passersby quite a show.

The building you see in the photos is the actual structure, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. I’d been eyeing the facility since I saw the crazy shape of the framing go up. The ever-changing colored lights shine through the large open windows which served as a dope backdrop for our night shoot. The Luo Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas “is planned to become a national resource for the most current research and scientific information for the treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington ‘s Diseases, Multiple Sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) as well as focusing on prevention, early detection and education.”
