Not because im rude but because people who dont understand me and my thought process typecast me as rude. The reason I choose Rude T.ee V.ee to be the name of my movement is because I need people to see and understand my visions. I often say “Once you’ve lived Rude T.ee V.ee you’ll never go back to your TV.” I just want to show people what goes on inside of my head. I like to bring raw art to my audience. I like to share real life. I talk of rape, abuse, parenting, school, music, racism and a host of other things. There’s no point in sharing if its not of substance and I prefer to only work with artist who feel the same way about their craft. • What does Rude T.ee V.ee offer?
