Doug “Dirty” Timothy runs The FADER’s New York shipping department. About a year ago, we converted his old backstock closet into a studio to make videos. So now when artists visit, they always walk by his door. At the beginning of this year, Dirty started taking selfies with people who stop by. He tags his wife in every single one. “To brag,” he said. Thanks for making our office a place where I know I’ll see a friend every day, Dirty. More life in 2017.
This is Dirty’s first office selfie. Trae Tha Truth was in New York for a press week.
Brandy shared some advice for being your own valentine, and Dirty had on one of his many nice sweaters.
I remember that on this day Plies put his jesus piece on my neck. Wild that “Ran Off On The Plug Twice” was this year.
Remy and Dirty are actually old friends; here’s a classic twinning shot of them in The FADER office back in 2006:
Freeway stopped by.
Bre-Z from Empire was here.
So was Havoc from Mobb Deep.
YG politicking in the mailroom. The photo on the shelf in the back is a signed picture of Reverend Run and the Simmons family that’s been making the rounds in the office for years. Why is this one black and white?
Snootie Wild talked about snacks and helped me make a birthday video for my friend Jesse while he was here, too.
21 Savage had driven up to New York from Georgia overnight and not stopped at his hotel yet.
From the New York press run after Rae Sremmurd's FADER cover dropped.
Dirty looking like he bout to withdraw it all from the bank just like Blac Youngsta would.
I asked Mac Miller if Ariana was really real and he said yeah.
Classy with Common by the copy machine.
