We had the good fortune of connecting with 3 Brothers No Sense and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi 3 Brothers, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
As parents we feel like we have broken a lot of generational curses. We all grew up in low to moderate income homes and two of us in broken homes. Budgeting and planning for the future were luxuries that our parents didn’t have. So when it comes to creating legacies with generational wealth, and modeling a stable healthy loving relationship we had to start from scratch. We have not only been able to prepare our children to succeed in their lifetime, but ensure generations from now are able to thrive as well. We have been able to allow our children to really look to the future and not have to worry about the bare necessities of feeling safe, shelter, and food.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are three friends that have been able to morph into family over the last 20+ years. Our podcast was born from us wanting to share our knowledge and experiences with others. The show is a way to give a glimpse into the mind of three successful black men without the confines of large media censoring. We use a barbershop style format where we discuss anything from our “top 5,” to social issues, to relationship taboos. We always try to stay conscious and in tune with the world and how it affects us and people that look like us. This journey wasn’t an easy one. We didn’t know where to start and the hardest part was just stepping out on faith and starting. We started with echoes in the background and barely audible commentary, but we got better every episode. The biggest lesson we have learned is to just start down the path and forge as you go. We want everyone to know that the 3 Brothers really do have sense. But it’s just so much fun when you package it with no sense.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of the fun and interesting places we would make sure our friends visit are the battery, the beltline, U bar, the trap museum, Tyler Perry Studios, CNN, World of Coke, and Centennial Park. You have to visit the MLK memorial as well. Some places we love to eat are JR Crickets (of course), Chattahoochee Food Works, West Egg, and Rock Steady.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First, we want to shout out our families first. Without them this couldn’t be possible. And we would like to shout out SWAT. Some people make friends in high school and then drift apart as they get older. S.W.A.T. which stands for Strong Wise and Talented was our friend circle in high school that grew to became family. We have protected, encouraged, provided solace, pushed, and held each other accountable for over 20 years. We have experienced and survived graduations, weddings, incarcerations, business launches, divorces, deaths, and family tragedies. All the while S.W.A.T. has been there to support us and we thank you.
