This is a piece that I made before Champs. The inspiration for it came from some of the most respected artists out there, Adam G, 2BA, and Colton. Since working with Adam and 2BA I had to try a piece this style. All flow. I had no Idea where everything would fit so I just made it get in where it fit in!!! Special thanks to Joel for the stock and to Big Frank for throwin hands with me!!!Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!
