9 Mins w/ @Directlyme

Posted on February 05 2016

We managed to catch up with the steady working @directlyme and learned what motivates him to stay on his grind. directlyme Who are you and what do you do?

First and foremost, the name is AJ Ahmed - owner of Creative Commission. I handle branding for some of your favorite celebrities like DJ Envy and Bizzy Crook. Not to mention I’m the Director of A&R for Jacknforbeats/Atlantic Records. A jack-of-all-trades, I've worked with your favorite artists to put out music with substance as well as keep them laced in the best new gear. . . Staple.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

Thank god for my blessings. I literally PRAY and get ready to hustle. What else is there to do? Drink Coffee?

What daily essential do you carry and why?

My iPhone is my lifeline. Unreal how bad we depend on smartphones. Also, cash. We all know C.R.E.A.M.

Guilty pleasure that many may not know…until now . . .

Candy is my damn kryptonite. Shoot, I rather sweets than a meal at times!

One word to describe yourself.


What inspires you to keep going everyday?

My daughter and my family are all that matters. I want to leave behind a legacy that’s more than just money. Thank God for blessing me to do it for them!I appreciate you getting to know me more for real. Also, the Spring 2016 line is official.


To further establish Creative Commission. To see my family healthy and happy. To achieve more than I aim to accomplish daily.
