**Exclusive** SpiltMillk Interview

Brief intro of yourself
I don't need no hook fo this shiiiiiiiiiit


Starting with the clothing line, what you decide to create a tshirt line?  what made me decide to start a clothing line? my culture, my community, my need to help people, my hunger to create...shit like that.


Where did the name Spilt Millk originate from? That name came from the struggles I've encountered all my life..at least my version of spilt millk. The saying "don't cry over spilled milk" is some old school shit tho, means don't complain about shit you can't change. It all started when they raised the price of milk during the great depression...some shit like that. I just stopped complaining about the past, no use in crying over things you can't change. It inspires people to look to the future and not dwell on yesterday.

How do you come up with your ideas for shirt designs? Shirt designs stem from my life so the shirt "HANGOVER LIFESTYLE" was really the lifestyle I was living at that moment. I had just moved to the eastside upstairs from a bar haha best decision ever, I would go downstairs and have a beer and some popcorn for $1 ..who does that on a Sunday afternoon ...THIS GUY So yea it all depends on whats going on in my life at the time, I imagine shit a lot, I think a lot. I just put that shit on a t-shirt and keep it moving
Any plans to expand the line beyond tshirts? I would love to do jeans, book bags and hats. Right now we have T's and buttons, idk I would probably need dope boy money or mainstream money for all of that

Where can people purchase Spilt Millk clothing? Right out of my hand or Sky High Skate shop in Bayview. I'm officially never putting another shirt online to sell, just how I feel right now. I'm trying to get my "Underground" on, making my line about family and friends. So if you want a T I'm gonna assume you are family or friend haha no strangers, I think that makes sense. I mean if you just like the design then I guess, not sure how I feel about that tho because at the end of the day I'm really trying to better the world and my community with the meaning behind the design(s). That probably sounds confusing.

How long have you had your blog M.A.A.R.S.? only 1 year an say 3 months. Something like that, what a ride it has been. 2 awards, countless interviews. 5,000 views a month and thats just for M.A.A.R.S. not even including Music In Revolt. I have a legit fan base that respects what I'm doing, its an amazing feeling.

What made you decide to start a blog? Well, I lost my job a little over a year ago, I was bummed...sad..depressed...confused, all that. I did what I loved just to maintain, which was skateboarding. I love that shit to death, catch me riding everyday in the summer, I would ride all thru tha hood. Kids would ask me to do tricks and teach them tricks, it felt good to see black kids be curious about skateboarding and the culture as a whole. People on the northside of Milwaukee would trip when I told them what type of clothes I wear or music I listen to. They didn't know it was all thanks to skateboarding. That being said I decided to put people on to this culture and my life by blogging about it. Taking pics, covering skateboard and music events. Interviewing skaters etc etc. All of that has turned into everything that you see today. I manage artist, I have a bike team, film videos, I've been doing logo's and photoshoots every other day. This is officially my life, I love my blog and everyone who supports it. I had to do a little research about bloggin, to see what my style would most likely fit. I'm a picture type of person, I don't want to write EVER! so thats mainly my style, taking pics and posting links and videos. Only the ones I've created tho, I don't post other people shit on. It takes the organic feeling away, and I reeeaallly like that feeling.

When looking for things to posts, what are you looking for? I use to go to my fav websites, but now I just blog my life haha, it's pretty awesome I must say. I take all the pics on my blog, I even do the flyers and videos. This question goes back to "my style" of bloggin, some people blog to promote something or whatev. I bring people into my journey to whatever lies ahead of me. 

One of your talents is photography, when did you fall in love with being behind the camera? good question because I wasn't really into it like that years ago. I always admired ART. My life was always moving too fast to really chill,enjoy, and appreciate art....shit I lost my job and had all the time in the world to really stop and see things in a different light. I had a lot of time on my hands man smh. I paid more attention to photography, clothing lines, our culture, etc...So I guess the answer to your question is 1 year ago.

You have also produced some music videos, what do you think the most important concept in shooting a video is? idk its lots of things you should pay attention to, its so complex and I could talk all day about it. I think a story line or just a concept in general is important. Stay away from random as shots, the more angles the better, the more scenes the better. This is what I've learned so far tho, I'm poor and could do a lot more if I had more equipment and such.

Piece of advice for anyone chasing their dreams? chase them, and don't stop till you catch them

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near. I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell. Shock jock radio value going down - The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podca

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we... Tracee Ellis Ross  - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black- ish ,  the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were  anticipating  seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired… Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown- ish , I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is mis
