Cartier Art called out for Scamming

Here at TrueSlamBook we tell it like it is. Yesterday we received an anonymous submission about a recent bamboozling that had taken place in Atlanta. This one hit close to home as it could happen to any of us on the team. With Social Media Phenoms being an emerging source for unique clothing, we had to bring this one to the forefront and make you aware. 

Before we get into our take, take a look at what was sent in. 

Designer ScamFashion Dont'sAnd last but not least, the scammer in this case:Cartier Art

Now, lets get into the story as it was relayed. 

  1. Atlanta Rapper Influence paid Cartier to make him a jacket for a concert. 
  2. Influence paid half up front and was to pay the other half on delivery. 
  3. Upon initial delivery, the jacket was an ill fit and alterations needed to be made. Said jacket was taken back by Cartier for the alterations to be executed. This took place on a Friday. Influence advised he was to receive the coat the following Tuesday. 
  4. Tuesday came and went. Wednesday stopped bye then left. Thursday swung through and left. By Friday, Influence was over it and began to talk to his team about it. 
  5. Friday morning the leak was sent to us. 

As you take a moment to sip that tea, we’ll wait!

Okay! Now that you’re done lets talk! As of now, no statement has been made by Cartier Art. He has blocked Influence on Social Media and is refusing the reply back to text messages or emails. 

Now, we aren’t one to take sides…….. However, we do have one question for Cartier Art. Is this how you run your business? You take from the very community and base of people who support you? 

We will follow this case and keep you updated. Who knows what may happen as we hear Influence is not one to be played with……….

BawnTV Presents “About Him: Freshman Year”

After a successful Season One, Tyson Anthony decided to part ways with Signal 23 and take the About Him fan fav to BawnTV. No Shade on the front end, however, word on the streets is that tho Tyson Anthony owns the book rights, he doesn’t own the television rights. These rights are alleged to belong to famed Signal 23 creator, Henderson Maddox.

As if that’s not enough, we hear Signal 23 is still planning to continue with their own About Him, minus a few cast members, as we see they have migrated to the BawnTV side of life…. Don’t worry tho, Signal 23 still has Gary LaVard (Vincent)…..

In any case, get into the New Season and let us know what you think…. Will it be as EPIC as Season One? Or, Nah…..

There’s no denying that it’s all about him – Damien. After experiencing his first encounter with heartbreak Damien dives into the chaotic world of college life. Damien stumbles around campus like the other lost freshmen doing his best to keep his eyes glued to his books and off of shirtless jocks, fratboys, and handsome intellectuals. But Damien’s level of discipline may prove to be no match for the ways of a manipulate college senior who threatens to establish a degrading reputation for the freshmen.

Damien’s cousin Kendall begins his own journey of self-discovery. Kendall not only reconnects with himself, but with a love from his past – a cute church boy. It’s a forbidden love that may require Kendall turning his back on the person who has aided him in keeping his sexuality secret from friends, family, and their church for years – his mother.

Bounce WAY Back

Now, no shade but we had to say this. We attended the recent File Premiere for the film “The Bounce Back.”

A relationship guru and best-selling author finds himself falling for the licensed therapist who questions his methods.

Make sure you go see it when it comes out as it is truly a cute story. We won’t say who but one of the team members shed a tear more than a few times during the film. LoL!

On another note, we have an issue we need to address…. Dear Hollywood STOP IT….. In the film Shemar Moore and Bill Bellamy give you Sensual Seduction and make you wanna ask for forgiveness for the thoughts in which you have experienced. HOWEVER, when they hit that Red Carpet the other night you had no choice but to look at the promo, then look at them… Then back at the promo and be like…. REALLY HOLLYWOOD????? These men must have been BEAT Face BOOTZ for the filming as on the carpet they looked like the Uncles from WAY Back…..

Then to top it off…. They hit you with a pose from 1993 like they was bout to hit the Soul Train Line…..

Chileeeeeee, someone come get these Ole G’s!!!!!

It’s no secret that these men are handsome. We also know they are past their Prime Years. However, the transformation that they do on camera compared to what hits the Red Carpet when there is no beauty team is absolutely unfair. LoL!!!!! Granted they can both still get it, but, the thoughts start to change somewhat when they show up serving you uncle realness……
