I was an Orphan born in Memphis, TN. Raised in Missippi by my Aunt and other relatives bc that’s what families do. Favorite pass time was fixing up and racing cars (Ask about me). Served 20+ years and in the Army, married for 20 years, and had two Son’s that graduated from Auburn University. Who am I? *Hint* I’m one of his Son’s…Moral of the story, even when it looks like you don’t have a chance fight for what you want in life. (at Al Maboula Kuwait)

"Memorial Day each year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life."~Robin Hayes

“Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, We experience our strength, our wealth, our power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills us with joy. Our experiences has us overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.” ~ Erich Fromm

We may be taking some time off. But we’re most definitely still working. Heard those Auburn Tigers have an A-Day tomorrow, from the Stō•ik Life Staff WAR DAMN EAGLE! New gear and designs will be available for various college color ways next year! (at Ali Sabah Al Salem Kuwait….)

Doe B had begun to break out beyond “The Gump” off the success of “Let Me Find Out,” a song which first appeared on his 2012 sophomore mixtape Definition of a Trapper 2. With a sparse, slow-rolling bass line and an insanely catchy hook, the song was an exercise in a less-is-more philosophy.

"It’s very rare that you could find somebody at the age of 20 or 21, and sit them down in front of somebody they aspire to be like, and they are as composed and poised and postured and looking eye to eye with this person. It’s very rare that you find somebody at the age of 20 or 21 and you could walk them into the room with a Nelly, or you could walk them into a room with a Timbaland or Jay Z, and they not lose their cool, they’re composed, postured, with the morals, standards, and the principles that were instilled in him from his family, his mom, his dad, grandmama, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles … I saw that in him day one, off top, and that is what drew me to him even more so beyond the music."-T.I.

“He was the next Biggie Smalls of the South. He had the smarts, the gift, the look. He had it all in one package. That’s very rare. And he was only 22. He was just a big kid. He was humble. He was caring. He’d help anybody. And he just wanted to work. That was his main thing, making music. Even if he was just hanging out he’d be making a song in his head. Constantly working. He didn’t drink. He didn’t smoke. There wasn’t no real reason for that either. It just wasn’t for him. He was a happy person, man. A happy spirit”-DJ Frank White

A year is a long time from now. You have our word 2015, S.L.R. (Stō•ik Life Reflection) will reach heights you never thought were possible. Most of the success is due to you all! Understanding that Stō•ik is mind survival which overcomes setbacks and obstacles. From the team as usual we can never thank you enough. So no worries we’re working on new designs, more quantities, and a dope presentation for it all. We’ll be sure to keep you informed with our progress, God Bless!

"Makes me wanna hustle, take care of my brother. Pops passed away, we hold it down for our mother. It’s never really enough, so we just stand strong and tell her that we love her" (at Fort Bliss)
