07 Feb EP35: Antonio Porter
Brandy captures the stories of his barber and friend of more than twenty years. Tony Porter has been cutting hair since the 80’s. But back when trimmers weren’t a thing and getting a pass to make house calls in gang territory for cuts wasn’t unusual, Tony wasn’t thinking of making a career of his craft. In fact, his journey just about took him to R&B stardom when his group, Xtra, gained local notoriety and landed a deal with a Jive Records affiliated label after an encounter with the 90’s group, Hi-Five. Growing up with his Grandmother, who didn’t play, getting his first pair of clippers, and stirring up heated discussions on Facebook are just a few of the many memories of the well known figure.
