Rashid Johnson’s Shea Butter Has Arrived

26 Feb 2013


“You could listen to the Blakey album while you’re putting on shea butter and reading the Ellis Cose book. Maybe you would kind of understand how I came to make it. Because that’s how I made it, by listening to the album, reading the book and y’know, putting on shea butter which I kind of consistently do throughout the day, which is why my skin is so soft.”
