Its been a minute since my last post and ALOT has happened. Me and my girlfriend Sade have been working really hard on getting her new album done and out to the public. Her first single "soldier of love" is making alotta noise and we're excited about it. I also went to the Bay last week for yes we can can. Yes we can can is my big bro crazy legs' bday celebration. Its been goin on in NY for 16 years, and more recently in the bay for the last 3. The event was a HUGE success and we filled 3 barrells of canned food for the local food bank. Big up to everyone involved Fran Boogie, Mona Lisa Reyes, Mr E, Alex Aquino, Shortkut, Wish1, Golden Chyld, Honeydips, Bail Rock, T Dubb, Davey D, Nina Parks, Similak Chyld, Crystal, Tara and everyone else who helped out. THANK YOU.
I got my a** kicked by NPC california figure champion Mona Lisa Reyes in the gym, this girl looks like she's nice, acts nice, but in the gym she's a BEAST… kicked my butt! for more info click GO TEAM MO! Me and my guy T Dubb chopped it up for a sec and put 2010 in perspective. I also gotta chance to stop by Q Berts Scratch University for some hands on instruction. Safe to say I got to soak up alotta game. Thanks for everything bro, lemme know when u wanna get back on that chess board homee :)
All i can say about the bay is WOW… I love it. Papalote's is the spot, the club was great, weather good, very productive (solo) trip. Like Ahhnold says "I'll be bahck"

DON'T DO DRUGS! If you wanna get high, then do like me... GO PARAGLIDING! Anyway, last week was full of adventure and risk. In the middle of practicing for the MLS cup halftime performance I thought it would be a good idea to goto the gymnastic gym. I mean I havent been to one in like 15+ years. Should be fun right? I mean, I can still do that stuff. Just stretch a lil bit first...
Needless to say, I was a bit rusty. Flipped around on the floor and mats, hit the bars and rings, then made my way to the trampoline. This is where it gets interesting. Flipped around w my fellow crew member for a second then... it happens. Back flip, bounce, back flip, bounce, front flip, bounce...front flip...and..WAIT where's the trampoline?? Oh wait, thats the floor- the very hard non cushioned, non bouncy floor. HARD LANDING, foot swells, pain follows :(
Couldnt practice the rest of the week, didnt do the halftime performance w my crew, and still limpin a lil bit now. Crazy thing is I'll be back to that same gym(God willing) as soon as I heal :) Below is the video of how it all went down (minus the fall itself)
Nonetheless, the halftime performance was great and MASSIVE MONKEES absolutely KILLED IT.
Be sure to check out this weeks mix and subscribe to the podcast. This weeks mix and all the ones prior to it are available here and/or on my WEBSITE. Enjoy and pass along to others. Until next time yall

So many stories to tell, from Seattle, to Hawaii, to NYC, ATL, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago, Vegas like 4 times, Minneapolis, Butte, Texas, New Jersey..its been NONSTOP. Which is why I'm happy to just be home for a lil bit, even if its just a week, I'll take it. The expired milk in my fridge has been replaced, and I restocked the cupboards.
We'll save the stories for when there's more time to talk... For now I'll leave you with some visuals and a glimpse into the future. The next few months, and upcoming year, are set to look really great... From remix projects, to more club ventures, radio, and travel... LETS GET IT YALL!
