I'm an "OBP"--Original Black Punker. I've been rock'n the AfroPunk scene since high school when the P-Funk Mothership landed. But I bowed down to the sound when the Bus Boys, Fishbone, Living Colour rip'd da' ruf off in the '80's.
I'm originally from Chicago, and currently live in Urbana raising a new generation of AfroPunker--my sun (no typo) is 21 yrs. old, loves that his Ma is hardcore nappy weird--and giving him the opportunity to live a life less ordinary. We are always on the ear out for new sounds and visions that make us want to rock our heads and stimulate the brain. So if ya' see us at a concert, step up 'n share a beer and a head-bang.
You can be my friend if...
If ya' like loud, earsplit'n, in yo' face punk by sista's 'n brotha's who carry the word, we can hang.

The deadline for the pictures is August 20. I most likely will not finish the video until the first week of September. If I have too many pictures to fit into the video I will make another one. So if you don't see your pic in the first vid itll be in the second. The video will be show cased on afropunk's web site sometime in September. The video should be on the front page as feature.
*Also, the first video will be for the ladies and queen and the song will be PRETTY GIRL ROCK by KERI HILSON. If you know the song then you can also send me a video of you singing and dancing to it.
*Even though the ladies and queens video will be first, guys can still send pictures to my email.
Hope these directions are clear lol and I also hope to hear from you soon! ^.^
