I met visual artist, Muck Fogley via Twitter (gotta love social media), and he actually had reached out to me to cover some of his work via HipHopSince1987, as he was releasing his M1 photo archive during that time. We chatted a bit in the DM’s and discovered we both had a mutual homie, my dawg DP. I think DP had just released his debut album, “Designer Casket,” or was prepping that release.. but either way, that sparked a cool conversation between Muck & I. Not too shortly after, we had the chance to link in person when I made a business/leisure trip down to Atlanta.
We did a few shoots over blunts and good vibes, and have always kept from that one link up. Since my original encounter with Muck, he’s done a lot of traveling across the states, furthering his freelance photography career. My guy has published works via COMPLEX, Noisey, illROOTS, Ebony, and even landed one of his most notable works on the cover of OG Maco’s project “Night Like This“. For his birthday this past year, he celebrated with the love of his life, his camera, at the “Hy!£UN35 Tour”. I can only imagine what that scene was like.
He had the chance to link with his mentor, UnkleLuc, and even met & heard Famous Dex for the first time. He offered a few photos he captured for the EDL team to showcase and of course, gave us a few words on his experience:
This was a great birthday experience seeing visuals from UnkleLuc, hearing Famous Dex for the first time. Was blessed with the opportunity to venture back stage and spotted TM88 amongst other Atlanta staples.
Be clear. ALL of these photos were captured on a disposable camera and later processed. Muck is the mannnnn. In the above photos, we have UnkleLuc, Famous Dex, Tm88, & Lil Yachty.
