E-Book | Cashew Company Journal: Atlanta Edition

Cashew Co

Hey guys!  Remember us? We put out that Journal that one time? The really cool looking one with all the artists, designers, and musicians from Atlanta. Yeah, that one. Well, get this – We're doing it again. Only this time, it's about New Orleans. We've got rappers, we got producers, we got graffiti legends, we got photographers, we got sign painters, we got New Orleans Indians, we got No Limit Soldiers and Cash Money Millionaires. Man, listen... We even got a chef. We're really putting the "lit" in literature with this one.

And to celebrate the upcoming release of the Cashew Company Journal:  New Orleans Edition,  for the first time ever we're making the Atlanta issue available for digital download. Ten bucks, and it's all yours. That's right, for the measly cost of 2 $5 footlongs from Subway, or 4 6" sandwiches from Subway, you can own this gorgeous, 250 page, full-color monument to Atlanta subculture on your desktop or mobile device. Cashew Co, Read Fresh™.

And don't think we forgot about you, people who already copped the Atlanta Edition. We were just saving the best for last. To get your free digital download, simply email info@cashewco.com with a picture of you holding your book and we will send you the link! Just our little way of saying thank you for being a friend.

Get Out Their Lane.

In honor of Gucci Mane's birthday – and to provide our snowed-in Atlanta readership with some much needed hotness – Cashew Co. proudly presents F.E.R.R.A.R.I. BOYZ, a webcomic tribute to the trap's very own dynamic duo.

P.S. Confused? You can read F.E.R.R.A.R.I. BOYZ #1 right here

Big things are poppin' this week at CCHQ, but we would be truly remiss if we didn't take a moment to say thanks to Rodney Charmichael and Creative Loafing Atlanta for the wonderful write-up they gave Cashew Company Journal: Atlanta Edition. The piece stars our very own founding father Diwang Valdez and traces the Cashew Crew's origin story from our humble beginnings as entrepreneurial art school kids all the way to our humble endings as self-publishers with accidental mob ties. Check it out.

The South Got Something to Say

Editor’s Journal Entry 1/9/14

#printaintdead. I’ve been saying that phrase over and over in my head (and on Twitter, IG, and to anyone who wants to hear it) ever since the Cashew team sat down to talk about how we would produce, execute and release our first journal to the masses. A year later the fruits of our labor are being realized, consumed and promoted by the very community whose stories we wanted to share with the world albeit one city and volume at a time. One the eve of our launch, I couldn’t be more proud. Call it a bold statement, but next to Andre and Big Boi announcing their “reunion” (let’s be clear they took a break, they didn’t break up), I’d say our the Cashew Company Journal’s Atlanta Edition is one of the best things to happen to Terminus City in a long ass time. 

“The South got something to say!” 

I can still hear Andre’s voice at The Source awards in front of that angry mob booing New Yorkers years ago. Andre was right then. He’s right now. If anything comes across in the 200+ pages of our book, it’s that the South, and Atlanta in particular, does indeed have more to offer than meets the eye or that’s actually covered by the alleged purveyors of the city’s culture.

Over the past couples weeks I’ve been getting a lot of the same line of questioning from our peers, interested parties and even my momma (what up, Naomi?); “What is Cashew?” “How can I get involved?” “I got a story you need, can we get in the magazine?”

This is not a magazine.

If you have spent time, like really sat down to peruse the journal word for word, image to image and Ferrari boy to 2 Flaaaamez, then you know that this is something way more than just a new, cool entity of ATL’s “other ground” scene.

What is Cashew? Read it and find out. How can you get involved? We’re still figuring that out. For now, I just want everyone to get to know the journal. To quote my brother and editorial spirit animal, Kenny Keil (CC co-founder), Volume I, “showcases Atlanta's vast and wildly diverse creative spectrum in a thoughtful, cohesive, and expertly curated way.”

Translation: the South is still talking. Are you listening?

Here's a little Monday motivation for those of us running late for school, work, and life in general this morning. Our very own distinguished man of letters Gavin Godfrey recently sat down with Dax Rudnak for an in depth exploration of the man's life, work and philosophy. Gems were dropped, drugs were definitely not taken (hi, mom), and you can read about the whole sordid affair in Cashew Company Journal: Atlanta Edition.

In the meantime, marinate on this interview excerpt for a minute. Then get out there and make something.

Do something worth mentioning about by the time you fucking die. Just don’t be the person that jumps in these pictures at the club all the time and think you’re fucking famous. Fame is not what it’s all about. Leave something for people to enjoy that will inspire them for years.
