MEET TEYANA TAYLOR & IMAN SHUMPERT
Teyana “Spike Tey” Taylor’s perspective of film is far beyond the expertise of being only in front of the lens. The entrepreneur mindset of Harlem-born singer, dancer, actress, and choreographer has produced a career with her own authoritative order. Teyana is the essence of a renaissance woman. She executive produced her #1 charting RnB Billboard album, THE ALBUM, and served as creative director and choreographer to several sold out tours. She also launched a MAC Cosmetics line curated and designed by herself. Her multifaceted talents as an entertainer, visionary and creative continue to open doors. Teyana has choreographed for Beyonce and turned Kanye West’s Fade into a viral sensation. Her highly sought-after creative eye led her to creative direct for brands such as Adidas, Reebok and Jordan Brand. Teyana’s unstoppable talent behind the lens also awarded her BET’s 2020 Video Director of the Year. Taylor has since launched her all-female production company, The Aunties Inc. to help artists like herself find their full creative potential. The Aunties Inc. has already produced and directed for the likes of Wu-Tang, T.I., Meg Thee Stallion, Big Sean, Macy Gray, Iman, Monica, and more. Teyana is also credited in film and television for her lead roles in Hit The Floor, Star, Honey 4, and Coming 2 America to name a few. Taylor’s main contribution in the industry is to produce work that is authentic and shift the narrative of being a traditional artist and filmmaker. Teyana remains an elite storyteller behind the lens.
Iman Shumpert is a father, rapper, producer, entrepreneur, actor and NBA basketball player. Iman became a fan favorite in New York with his gritty defensive play and high top fade haircut, reminiscent of past Knicks players. He was drafted #17 by the New York Knicks in 2011 and played four seasons for the team. He went on to win an NBA Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers and play for the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets. Known by music fans as Iman, he has made his own path to musical respect with his high tempo flow and personal lyrics as seen in his most recent musical release “Joyride.” In addition to writing lyrics daily, he continues to work on various musical projects and build his record label, A Sinner’s Peace. Iman surprised fans by appearing in BET’s hit show TWENTIES last season and will be acting in a few additional television shows this fall. He also won an EMMY for his participation in the MSG Network show BEGINNINGS. Fashion and design is how Iman expressed his creativity while growing up outside of Chicago in Oak Park, Illinois in the 1990’s. He has now grown from wearing and modeling clothes to designing his own clothing brand called Centerpiece. Iman wants people to be inspired to become the centerpiece of their family and their own life.
We Got Love Teyana & Iman” is produced by STXalternative with Shanta Conic, Teyana Taylor, Iman Shumpert, Jason Goldberg, Michelle Kongkasuwan and Ailee O’Neill serving as Executive Producers.
