November Updates


What up everybody?

Lotta updates going on...

First of all, make sure you come thru and bookmark the blog I'm writing for now. It's run by DJ Underdog who is Damu the Fudgemunk's brother. It's a dope blog that covers a range of topics including healthy vegetarian/vegan food, dope ass music, events, art and more. Definitely check me out over there as I'm trying to post every day.

2nd - a lot of you guys know that I'm finishing up a masters degree in Psychology next month - because of this I'm pulling 12-14 hour days working on papers and what not, so the instros aren't going to be coming as regularly as before, but they will pick back up very soon.

3rd - I am working with an investor to release my first official album tentatively titled "Push IVward," It's going to be all instrumentals (including cuts & scratches) and is gonna be released hopefully either december or January. It's going to be released in CD format. Hopefully going to have Joe Buck doing the artwork (you might know him from the cover of "De La Soul is Dead").

So basically, all the way around it's gonna be a really dope project and the beginning of me releasing my own albums without a middleman or shady label head. Also, if you guys come out & support this effort, I promise to start releasing albums on wax!

Thanks for continuing to support what I do - the music is only going to get more advanced from here on out.

Peace & remember - it's not what the future has in store for us, but what we have in store for the future.

Call to Action

“The world is yours.” –Nasir Jones

We as a society have chosen convenience over substance. The fast food analogy can be applied here – a drive-thru Big Mac, fries & a coke is much quicker & more convenient than breaking everything down into its purest form & building a meal from scratch. We know that preparing our own food is better for us & even more rewarding, yet we often choose McDonalds instead because it is easy & convenient.

We know it is not good for us so we say we will begin to eat healthier tomorrow & that this is our last day of poor nutrition. That day turns into a week, which turns into a month & so on.

Why wait when we can improve now?

The revolution will not be televised, so you might as well put down the remote & get involved! Look below the surface & see what’s going on. Become involved with something meaningful or better yet make it happen yourself.

Good music still exists, just not on commercial radio. Great art is everywhere, just be more aware of your surroundings. Great people walk among us, we just have to pick our heads up from our cell phones/ipods/computers in order to look them in the eye.

Valuable ideas are within us all, we just have to let them out & not be afraid of being different. Our uniqueness is what makes us beautiful.

No one is great at everything, but everyone is great at something. What are you great at? How are you contributing?

What I’m saying is that you might want to make today the day you say goodbye to the dollar menu in favor of something more substantial.

“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” – Abbie Hoffman

The world really is ours if we want it.
