Everyone has a fighter buried within their soul. Being a creative person is a blessing and we sometimes forget that there is reward for the time we spend a honing our craft whether it be money, friendship, love, self-discipline or however you gauge success. Dancers, singers, rappers, actors, fashionistas, fighters and painters are just some of the people that make up this special group of “FIGHTERS”. We fight for our craft, we fight to survive, we fight for our family, we fight for our talent to shine. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this video and the making of “Creation Over Consumption”. #creationoverconsumption #audiohoundz
