I love songwriting and creating workshops/games for the youth to learn to practice mindfulness, yoga and meditation. in 2017 I took my work to several local schools and have been partnering with wonderful non-profit organizations but I have come to the realization that I can do much more outside of the Department of Education and have an even greater impact with your direct support.
I want to thank you because you have already been a tremendous support by reading my Ezine updates and keeping me in your heart. Your responses and emails sharing love and gratitude have kept me going strong.
Now I am offering a chance to really get knee deep and involved in the work I do. Now is the time to really take this journey to the next level and spread light and love through the creative arts beyond anything I have done before. Will you be my Patreon?

Our initial goal is $3,000/month. This total plus income from our various hip hop yoga teaching endeavors, wellness events and retreats will keep UNDAKOVA sustainable in NYC. Right now, we’re creating art in a state of political urgency in a world that does not value the labor of artists, healers and visionary change-makers. We’re taking risks to shift the paradigm and your contribution large or small helps our family eat, pray and love. We’re also envisioning the future and the global expansion of your hip hop yoga enterprise, including offering fully funded residencies for artists at our Urban Mystery Skool in lower Manhattan, mass-producing our Hip Hop Kids Yoga curriculum, bringing thousands of people to our wellness events and travelling around the world to share our gifts fully.
Here are UNDAKOVA costs:
- MailChimp. Upleveling our Mailchimp service to access more fans with convenience and ease of use.
- Ongoing web development. Hiring an official web-developer to provide a reliable and professional polished website detailing all of our events, services, mission and vision
- Video editing. Hiring a talented videographer with decent editing and social media skills on deck with a GoPro who will capture all of our events, performances, workshops and happenings at home and abroad. This offers our growing international online community a bird’s eye view of the magic we’re making instantaneously through short clips and videos posted regularly online
- Facebookpost "boosts" When we release new social media content on Instagram of Facebook it immediately gets included in 1/3 to 1/2 of our Facebook followers' News Feeds.
- Me. I’m a householder with a beautiful family and growing 15 month old son that needs all the love, resources and material support I can provide and more.
- Portable Amplified System We need to update most of our systems, including purchase of a brand new state-of-the-art AMP we can use at wellness events, festivals, performances and more. Our community deserves the “high vibration” programming we deliver to fall smoothly on their ears.
- One employee. We need extra hands and hearts to handle things like social media marketing and the whole range of small business upkeep. This will free me up to do the real creative work that I am most good, nurture positive community networks in real time and raise my son.
That's the basics. With those pieces covered, UNDAKOVA can support itself.
UPDATE: We hit the 10 peeps a month goal! It's been a total game-changer. Patreon now supports me to grow bigger and share my vision with more people. Thank you graciously as I wouldn’t be able to be here now without your support. From the bottom of my heart thank you, you’re support is truly felt.
We'd be happy to keep doing things exactly how we're doing them for a long time, and now we can. We'd also love to do even more if it becomes possible, which is where the stretch goal comes in:
New Years Push Goal of 50 Patreons!
The New Years Push will allow us to take UNDAKOVA to the next level, enabling us to do things like:
- Send out weekly Instrumentals from now until January 2018 (possibly 2019)
- Video blog our latest updates exclusively to you
- Hire someone to support the movement
- Upgrade the website. We call the current site undakovaenterprises.ontrapages.com. The New Years Push goal would fund the development of undakovaenterprises.ontrapages.com and allow us to dial in the truly represent our growth, offerings, content and community. This could include a part of the site where patrons can access all of the Undakova Instrumentals and DJ sets archived over time, post questions and interact with each other, and have even more customization.
The New Years Push goal would be amazing to hit, but simply being totally supported by your generosity makes me truly grateful, and blessed to be able to be working toward making the world better than I received it. So I am happy no matter what else happens even if it just stays at us 11 :).
Thank you once again for any support you can offer if you decide to, and thanks for being a Undakova Patreon.
If you’re like me, you want to seed the labor of creative innovators producing the visionary art that will shape our future. Personally, I support some of my beloved brothers, fellow MCs that inspire what I do and challenge me to work harder and smarter. Each one teach one, patreons can be mutually supportive of one another’s craft - that’s the beautiful thing. Let’s build enlightened, creative communities that offer grassroots support for artists to sustain long and viable careers up against great odds. Some of the artists I support on PATREON include:
Self Suffice, SUM and JBRAVE are brothers, friends, fathers, plant based diet eaters and conscious change maker for the new paradigm just like me.
