“Being what we think we are.”


artistic imitators

Musicians, actors, and everybody in between have or portray characters that they get a little caught up in the sometimes. And when I say this, I am referring to the imitation of art from the artist. You generally see this in Hip Hop music. The only genre of entertainment where your life can be in danger because of your craft.

And why do people feel the need to portray something that are not. Is it really necessary for people to do this to stay on top?

credibility

When in regards to being caught up in being the character, does a sense of credibility add to the equation. Because we think that rappers are gangsters, in reality, they are mere artists good at being the part. And what’s scary is that you could inevitably lead to your own demise trying to portray this character.

But is all about trying to portray someone or do you get so wrapped up in your career you start to actually think you are the character. This happens with method actors who become the character to have a better impact on the film/television show.

stay in your lane

The principal still remains, stay in your lane. Be happy that you have a career where you can showcase your talents. Don’t bow it trying to live up the hype of what a chosen few want you to be.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
