This week Day 1 Radio sits down with Atlanta-based photographer Emef Griffin as he gears up for his 2nd ever show “Just Be A Good Person,” coming up on August 23. If you’ve been anywhere cool in Atlanta recently, you’ve probably seen the shirts, but now we get to hear directly from the guy behind the growing phenomenon. Enjoy.
1:45 – Griffin, or “Griff” as he’s known to friends, talks about the “Just Be A Good Person” show and mentions highlighted pieces including like “The Mona Keisha” which is (as far as he knows) the only composed picture of the infamous 2 Chainz pink TRAP house.
5:00 – Griff talks about how his father inspired him to get into photography and why he walks around with a camera everywhere he goes. He’s self-taught by the way.
7:40 – Griff explains where “Just Be A Good Person” came from (alcohol might have been involved) and how the phrase became a popular t-shirt.
13:40 – Griff offers his thoughts on wow to inform Black folks on why art is an investment.
19:19 – The discussion turns to the recent NFL x Roc Nation entertainment and social justice initiative. Is it legit or a cash-grabbing PR stunt?
26:00 – A Joey Bada$$ concert was canceled after threats were made to shoot it up, forcing Hip-Hop into the control conversation. Griff offers his thoughts on guns.
29:50 – “Top 50 MCs” lists have been circulating all over the web for the last couple of weeks. We have some fun with it too and also realize that “Top 50” is actually too damn many.
35:34 – Rick Ross just dropped another album. Does it sound any different from the others?
