   Who/What is UpperClass OG?

     UpperClass OG is a social movement organization that foregrounds the nature of presence within humanity, by creating a lifestyle supported by conscious transcendence in order to institute contentment within one's self and his/her environment. UpperClass OG is a collective of individuals who believe that reality is merely a reflection of the perspectives we internalize. That said, we invariably prioritize the creation and maintenance of productive thoughts. At first glance, we appear to be a simple clothing company; but we aim to disclose the depth that lies within. Our merchandise serves as an outlet of expression to help us share the beliefs we feel are essential to embody; and nets the hearts of human beings to fundamentally create a familiarity within our community no matter our differences. 

The UCOG Team

    UpperClass OG LLC has two co-founding members: Carl-Michael James Jr., one of the team's design extractors, the vendor correspondent, accountant, and social media manager, and Tywreh Nelson, the vision coordinator, inventory manager, and extension agent. Yes, co-founders create the vision. However, we needed help expanding that vision into something much more tangible. This meant that we needed to gather members who shared the same soul interest. The UCOG team has recently added four vital members over the past two years. These individuals are as follows: Yirakmeal "Rako" Henry, our business strategist, Isobelle Yousef, our videographer/photographer and design extractor, Keturah Nelson, another one of our photographers, our visual content extractor, and assistant social media manager, and Madelin Yousef, our literary enthusiast and internal adviser. Officially established in 2017, UCOG was founded on the principles expressed by the lives of the founding members and friends. Special acknowledgment goes to the late Zion James, for ultimately becoming the heart and soul of our initiatives. Zion was a dear loved one to the members of UpperClass OG who tragically lost his life in a car accident on August 2, 2017. Younger brother to Carl-Michael, cousin to Tywreh and Keturah, and bond brother to Rako, Zion remains with us as the being that is UpperClass OG.
