It’s no secret, to be successful in life employing strategy is imperative. More than proving to be a formidable tool against those inevitable obstacles, it offers organization amidst the ever-present chaos. For context, let’s consider the discipline of a chess strategist/player. The absence of emotion veils the calculations of the mind; that strategic design that is ultimately disclosed upon the surface of a mere checkered pattern with monarchical pieces. For all intents and purposes, the game of chess is life’s simulator. By way of opponent intent and the assessment of it, your willingness to enforce strategy supports self-sustainability, and if executed correctly, triumph over your worthy adversary. Just ask Maurice Ashley – chess strategist/aficionado and the first African American to receive the “Grandmaster” title from the World Chess Federation, FIDE (Fédération Internationale des Échecs).

A unique literary series that is...Above The Rim

This is where it all started. A simple yet previously unexplored plot idea by D.D. Turner and the visual manifestation of a self derived character named, Chris “Cipher” Ellison by Brooklyn Artist/childhood friend, Wong Dowling. More than ten years later, the pursuit of this passion [The Chronicles of a Hip Hop Legend] remains real.

Wong Dowling (1978-2007)…Rest In Peace.
