UpperClass OG Explanation

Peace is in all of our best interest.



To help the world grow in peace by cultivating a healthier lifestyle for all animals, plants, and their environments.

Lightning Bolt Explained

Look around and you will quickly notice that UpperClass OG has attached itself to the lightning bolt insignia. We are here to tell you that what appears to be a lightning bolt, is actually the letter Z in disguise. ‘Z’ begins the first name of someone dear to us. His name was Zion James. His passing shocked the hearts of the founders of UpperClass OG, encouraging them to live in a more fulfilling manner. In many ways, Zion’s life serves as an infinite energy source that continues to push UpperClass OG in the direction of peace. By incorporating the lightning bolt into our official logo, it is our intent to make it clear that Zion’s energy lives on within us, hence the correlation between UpperClass OG and the lightning bolt. The bolt signifies energy.


UpperClass OG : L(earn)


The term upper class is usually associated with the highest ranking social status in America. Individuals who are considered upper class have tons of money and assets. This is not the case for members of UpperClass OG, however, the UCOG way of life has a direct influence on one's financial standing. 

If we, anyone not belonging to the upper class, are to ever earn lots of money, we must become active learners. L(earn). Because to learn is to grow, and with growth comes more green (money). In order for one to grow properly, health must be of utmost priority.

Everything is connected, so as we grow as beings, we will experience similar growth in every aspect of our lives. Everything, including our income, will flourish in peace. 

UpperClass OG chose its name to help begin the reprogramming process that is necessary, if we, people who are born at a financial disadvantage, are to ever experience financial freedom. We can all be upper class in the literal sense. We all have it in us. The real transformation starts from within, with how we perceive ourselves and others.

Rich people work together. They help one another. Let's do the same. Let us all be helpful in anyway we can. This is the UpperClass OG way of being. 

We call ourselves privileged ghetto youths because in many ways we can relate to the impoverished, outcasted people living below the standard, yet we admit to having some sort of advantage. Through UpperClass OG, it is our mission to share any knowledge we think may help in some way. 


The Beginning of UpperClass OG

Carl-Michael James, along with his partner Tywreh Nelson, were the first members of UpperClass OG. They were both equally inspired by the life and passing of their other partner, Zion James. 

In their eyes, Zion was a seed that sprouted, giving hope to the other seeds who have yet to sprout. Zion's everlasting energy still encourages both Tywreh and Carl-Michael to this very day. In their pursuit to make Zion proud, they both became aware of their personal legends. Their mutual awareness gave rise to what is now known as UpperClass OG. 


Note: The "OG" stands for Organic. Here at UCOG, we always choose the option that prioritizes health.
