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"
