“My goal was to capture something from every solo album, and the video is basically chronological. Starting with CD and ending with MBDTF. I entitled it Where The Lonely Kids Go When The Bell Rings (I know that’s not the actual line in Eyes Closed), because I feel like that sums up Kanye’s career – The outsider. The misunderstood genius.” - James Workman

What are you willing to sacrifice? How much are you willing to give up? How far are you willing to go? How many loved ones are you willing to leave behind? How many years of chasing a dream, that may never come true are you willing to waste?
I come from a place where money is what motivates the people, not the love of the culture. But just like everywhere else in this world, hustle comes with a price; one that can’t be paid for in cash, credit, precious metals or stones. Are there benefits? Yes. For the last year I have been traveling the world touring. Reaching places that most could never imagine. I’ve performed in front of crowds and stadiums that some major artist will never do. Many days I spent in airports by myself. Nights I spent in hotels by myself. Walked to venues, and at times been denied access to after parties and clubs that I was invited to host, in countries as hostile as Iraq. This is just a speck of my musical journey and life story. And how far I am I willing to go? How much will I give? I’m willing to go ALL THE WAY, TIL THERE’S NOTHING LEFT.

Unsatisfied with the meager winnings from emailing thousands of random Westerners in hopes of convincing one poor sap they’re the treasurer of the Ivory Coast, Ghana’s scammers decided to stack the odds in their favor the old-fashioned way—witchcraft.
Taking a page from cyberpunk, traditional West African Juju priests adapted their services to the needs of the information age and started leading down-on-their-luck internet scammers through strange and costly rituals designed to increase their powers of persuasion and make their emails irresistible to greedy Americans. And so “Sakawa” was born. via Vice
Always interesting to see what is going on around the world. Vice looks at ,”Sakawa,” and internet scamming in Ghana.
