"All I need is one mic" - Nas

I had seen Jeana on social media but it wasn’t really until she started posting photos bald that I really followed her. She embraces her alopecia areata, which is a condition that causes hair loss. I loved her look and thought it would fit perfectly with this concept that is similar to our Stereo SICKS shoot. I wanted it simple, just the beauty of the female form and distinct items from classic Hip-Hop lyrics. This was the first time that I’d try my hand shooting with a studio set up.
