The Creator

Whaddup doe? My name is Iman. I'm originally from California, growing up between the city of Palmdale and the South Central area of Los Angeles. I'm a crochet designer, a painter, a belly dancer - a multi-faceted shawty out here, ya digg?

After high school, I graduated from an HBCU by the name of Wiley College where I majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. I came back to California and worked for Long Beach Unified School District. While I was there, I continued to perfect my crochet skills, making bikinis, crop tops, shorts, etc. I used to walk around Leimert Park just chilling, talking to people, making connections, and selling my crochet items. 

I decided to go to pharmacy school after a trip to Nigeria in which I attended a medical mission with a group called NACENA. I was in the pharmacy department and decided I would come back stateside and start on my journey to becoming a pharmacist. I applied to pharmacy school in Hartford, Connecticut and this is where I graduated and received my Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree.

Fast forward to present day, I'm now a registered pharmacist living between Connecticut and California. I started making body butter while visiting home (Cali) and looking for lotion in the department store. I couldn't find anything that I wanted to use and decided to make my own moisturizer. Thus, Gangsta Grease was born. The name came from my dad. I am now dedicated to making Gangsta Grease a household name, knocking ash out of the streets. Fighting for the people.
