Most people always ask, “So when are you going on stage..?”

IT AINT HARD TO TELL

(above) THE CREATORS “It aint hard to tell who they are”

In the words of the Streets Disciple when we knew him as Nasty Nas
…”It aint hard to tell…” Hence the post. It aint hard to tell why you finding me smiling most times in pictures, unlike other rappers, emcees, producers, hip-hoppers etc…
IM HAPPY!!
I know thats against the rules in Hip Hop..HA!!
My life is so beautiful and I have to say that I am truly thankful for the ‘beautiful people” that have contributed in one way or another to making my days wonderful and meaningful.
To all the stong women who have influenced me and showed me how to treat women with respect…I THANK YOU FOR RAISING THIS GENTLEMAN. I guess thats why I have two boys of my own…we must need MORE gentlemen.

So here are some more important people that make all the difference in the world. “Acknowledge your “peoples” NOW while they’re around…instead of “remembering” them after they are in the ground” – Edreys

She’s the one responsible for me not getting caught up in the hood nonsense. Couldn’t get in trouble with a sister like mine. She always got the job done, cause she wasnt gonna let ME get HER in trouble by not doing her job and gettin my butt back home on time. luv u!


THE BIGGEST PLAYA’ HIATUS

(Above) Basically…

You LOVE how I spin words around…Playa Haters..Playa Haitus…get it?!?….
WHATEVER…i thought it was a clever play on words.

Anyways, I was on a very long vacation without much technology, therefore my blog reflected my absence. But there is always good news, like…
1) I wasn’t locked up
2) I’m not writing you from the prison library computer, hence good news #1
3) In the words of DJ Khaled…I’m still…”THE BEESSSSST”

I was out in San Fran for a nearly a week without my Mac, BUT I took lots of pictures and have many things to share and talk about. So, make sure you check back…unless I hit you first.


I LIKE OBAMA

When you give your best at something, all that you can do is put it out there and hope that the people you are trying to reach, will give you their time and attention. With that said, this morning, my friend “The Black Brad Pitt” discovered that we reached and touched someone with the “I Like It” video. When I created the song, the furthest thing from my mind was pairing it with the Obama Campaign. Check out the video below.
Watch and listen how some of the lyrics match with the images he uses. Schweeet!!
