Tribe X

As 2019 comes to a close, streetwear is still the most prominent topic in fashion. The definition of streetwear, and how people categorize it, is never constant and always evolving. However, designers and brands that authentically evolve to embrace beliefs of the culture, while interpreting them in their own way, are having success. Being able to create a look or design that speaks to the pulse of the people and their ability to express themselves is what makes this type of fashion so unique. In Florida there is mounting support for a streetwear brand that is connecting with the artistic community. Tribe X is a brand who prides itself on the inclusiveness of its lines. In a world run by separatists and the oppression of others, Tribe X envisions itself as a model of progress to help create an expression of diversity. Tribe X achieves by creating lines with messages that resonate with those that wear it. Tribe X advertises positive self-love and thinking through its fashion. Tribe X made its appearance unto the fashion scene with the release of its head wear lines. Lavi$h, Black Kings and Sacrifice all had impactful meanings behind them. We all make “Sacrifices” to make our dreams a reality. A dream to live the type of Lavi$h lifestyle to support our passion. The ability to see ourselves as the finished product Embrace all Cultures. “Join the Tribe Today !!!” Black Kings/royalty! The founder of Tribe X is from the melting pot of the Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Rico Williams, a finance grad from the University of South Florida, has left a lasting impression on those that have joined his tribe. As the Tribe X brand grew, Rico decided to share a message which has become the Tribes most recognizable campaign; Blessings! Blessings is Rico showing thanks for all the support the brand is gaining. Blessings is for all the things happening in our lives. This campaign allowed Rico to expand his head wear brand deeper into the realm of streetwear. As the brand continues to grow Tribe X has stayed true to it’s message of diversity and inclusion. Join the tribe today to become part of the movement.

Prophetic Foolishness is an Austin, based podcast that discusses uncommon topics, looking to engage with the common person, while providing a space to challenge social norms. Prophetic Foolishness looks to answer the questions that aren’t asked enough. Some things are foolish and some things are prophetic. This podcast connects with the people and inspires deeper thought into the things often not given enough thought. The hosts of Prophetic Foolishness are Krystofer Henry (pictures on the left) and Osagie Aisueni (pictured on right.) Krystofer is an Antiguan born strategic creative whose perspective comes from the values and culture of his Caribbean roots. Krys grew up in Titusville, Florida, where he learned his southern hospitality. Krys is also a photographer, obsessed with good storytelling, tasty food, great branding and captivating images that stir emotion. Osagie was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Osa - gie is proud of his Nigerian culture and upbring - ing and attempts to give the listeners a taste of the motherland. Not only does Osagie host one of Aus - tin’s newest podcast on the rise, he is building great relationships in his personal barbershop, where he claims to “perform life changing haircuts” for his clients. In a time where society is being driven to take a stand on positions that divide us, Prophetic Fool - ishness aims to have us think about the uncommon things we all participate in. Season 1 is a wonder - ful introduction into the prophetic foolishness. In my opinion, the episode in season 1 with a question that most are affected by but few really think about is episode 2 “Is it weird to hire a male baby-sitter?” The Prophetic Foolishness team pose a great debate into the lack of opportunities given to males in the realm of baby-sitting. They present great points into the psychological scars’ society has towards males and childcare. These scars cause a fear factor into why society tends to shy away from male sitters. The notion a woman or young girl would be better suited for childcare do to their motherly natures also speaks to the gender bias in this industry. They also did a great job bringing to the attention of their audience of Glen Henry a stay at home father who started a YouTube channel called Belief in Father - hood, where he gives advice to new fathers about the challenges of fatherhood in a thriving commu - nity. Krys and Osagie do a great job balancing the discus - sion with lighthearted humor without negating the seriousness of the conversation; it is foolish to dis - credit men as a care giver when we expect so much of fathers and many of them are rising to the chal - lenge. How prophetic it can be to create opportuni - ties for male baby-sitters and mannies to practice and gain experience to be better equipped mentally and emotional for fatherhood. Prophetic Foolishness is Legacy Builder’s podcast recommendation. Prophetic Foolishness does a wonderful job finding issue we think about but hardly ever discuss. Season 2 kicked off December 2nd, 2019 and is available on all streaming platforms. Where they will be tackling topics like “Why is it a bad thing to be ashy” and “if it’s okay to have a best friend of the opposite sex.” Let’s support the entertaining conversation which challenges social norms with the Prophetic Foolishness team in an attempt to bring us closer together.
