This Saturday Come Catch My First Show of 2010

The Subject Line pretty much says it all but here are some added reasons

1) it’s for a good cause with all proceeds going to Gleaners

2) there’s an eclectic line up so a little something for everybody

3) i’ll be drinking (you might think this is just fun for me, but if you think that you haven’t seen me drink)

4) The Situation is rumored to be there (i know it’s your guilty pleasure too)

5) 2040 will be holding me down on the 1’s and 2’s

6) I’ll be giving away free CD’s and shirts

to sum up it will be a good time for a good cause so get involved.

Dial 81, Intricate Dialiect, Beverley Fresh, 2040, and Mobil are Sweeeet!

Okay.  The homie Dial81 and Intricate Dialect dropped a free project at last week and this is my fav song off the track.  I hate saying why songs are my fav and explaining art in general (it’s just how I feel) but i’ll appease you a little.  I really dig the Superior Belly camp because frankly, they do whatever the fuck they want.  They’ll sample anything, say anything, try anything and that’s what makes the style everything.  I especially think that care free creative attitude comes across on this track.  Listening to this can quickly turn a winter night into a spring eve and something else that would be said in a woman’s deodorant commercial.  With that being said take a listen and if you like it click the album cover below the track to jump to Superior Belly and download the project for free.99.

Whatchu Know About My Writes

whaddup peeps,

as you would know from reading this blog it’s not specifically about anything in particular.  i just really talk about me and my friends. as music is a big part of my life it comes through in a lot of what I talk about (I guess that’s why it’s called hip hop is my soul).  Anyways with Life being Music and Music being Life I got home from the bar last night and decided to do a free write which I haven’t done in sometime to some instrumentals.  What I mean by a free write is the verses are going nowhere in particular.  For quite sometime everything I have written is going towards an upcoming project of mine or a friends.  This has caused me to write less in between projects and I think a little of my sanity has suffered for it.  The notepad is the poor mans therapist after all (although sometimes on nights of writers block it can feel like that note pad is judging you).

Anyways, I’m not sure if I’ll frequently do this but I decided to share what I wrote last evening.  I don’t know if I’ll frequently do this because I don’t know if the words translate just by reading them on the page and without delivery it’s like a text message where the feeling can be misunderstood or seem cold   and without emotion.  However, per usual I’ll let you decide with your feedback if I should do this more often or not.  With that being said let the show begin.  I was listening to The Roots “LNJF Sandwiches” project when I wrote this.  If you don’t have it i definitely recommend you grab it from as it is up for free download.   The track off of it I wrote is to “Someone is Late for Dentist”.  I always say you can learn all about me by listening to my words.  I’ve written a lot of verses so each one only tells a fraction but either way here’s to us getting to know each other better in 2010.

where are you going?

Ah my sweet solitude
I think I’m in the mood
To explore my mind got a little spare time
To get to know me, I know the old me
But I’m feelin’ brand new over this cold beat
So let me bundle up with this melody
Wrap my my ear drums in headphones and zone
Philosophize life simplified to a poem
Sanitize my soul let go of ego
And we go explore new territories
new experiences bring new stories
And we ain’t doin the same old
Naw never that, politic with clever cats
On the stoop like 227 with my sisters and brethren
Just livin’ lovin’ existence and this is
A love song dedicated to who
Well if you listenin’ dedicated to you
Nothing else to do but put your name right here
So help me out, scream it loud say your name
Let em know what you about, let em know why you came
But the question still remain’s where r u going
With styles as deep as the ocean
You can go with the flow and the next day switch it up
It’s your life, but use caution often many lost within the tide
When it rise, to swim against it is suicide, do or die
Man was once shy, now come alive in the limelight
Did he really change or just wait until the time right
That we’ll never know, he’ll never know himself
Really no right or wrong, you’re right or go left
U can be part of the in crowd but that crowd is out now
Ask me too confusing to figure out
Cat’s got the fly shirt, jean, sneakers to the cook out
Then that drama come they burn rubber who woulda thought they shook now
Cats united minds blind
Opened there eyes lashes rise to find out they on different sides
Meet me in the middle my conglomerates moderate
To everyone that think they spit that wonder rhymer shit
You better think again, yo your click ain’t shit,
Ask who I’m with yo it’s only USM
We only the illest when it comes to beats and the blends
Cats only feel this cause the dj spins again and again
I’m only gifted when it comes to the pad and the pen
And when I spit it you get lifted cause it’s heavenly scent
The rest of the crew is no different, man we get’s it in
We ain’t fearin’ that competition may the best man win
I never cast that first stone cause I ain’t without sin
I say RIP Bob Marley, the song is redemption
And if ya listenin’ this goes out to you
And love kinda rhythm nothin’ left to do
But put your name right here
Scream it out let em know what you about
I’m me and proud say it loud
Yo we been up and down and we searchin for that common ground if you were wonderin’ that’s where we goin
Ah sweet community, it’s just u and me, me and u
None of this u n I verse that I been seein in this universe
Floyd mayweather fightin for that bigger purse
Fans fair-weather better know who’s friend or foe
Only show your hand once that man’s played his
Cat’s played out too many top 40 spins, so it begin’s
Here’s the backlash, indy 500 hopin’ I don’t crash
I cruise through days of thunder, brainstormin boy wonder
And here you are caught caught without an umbrella
Ella ella ella ay, rocafella ella ella jay
Rocafella fella fella dame, andre harella ella ella Motown uptown empires fella fella
Within a day but this fella fella fella is glad to say that I’m still down with the ones
that held me down from day one, my fathers son that guitar got strummed on

every album I’ve ever done , I’m not done I won’t stop yo I just begun, seriously I’m just starting to have fun, gotta walk for you run, now watch me speed up, hungry for hip hop each one feed one, ya see love and see that everyone gone need love, that free love, I’m tellin’ you that’s what we need love, love is love, see we give and receive love, it’s all love, from my head to my check stub, love is love from the beats on the album to cats on the net downloadin, to the models in the shoots steady posin’, to them cats that stay building you were chosen, even to them fake cats that stay posin’, you’ll stay anonymous cause we ain’t for exposin, we’d rather sit back spit raps with frozen tongues, 2k10 native tongues,  music’s the universal language, so it’s the universe that I sang with

@The Bosco which is Italian for Forest, or an Urban Playground if You Will

Whaddup All,

Haven’t done a blog in the new year yet so figured I’d give you a quick shout.  No news is good news as it means I’m making moves to give you bigger news at a later date.  At the very least that’s what I’ll tell you guys to make it seem like I’m not a complete lazy ass throughout the majority of my days, but that’s neither here nor there.

What’s here is that a brotha will be partying it up at The Bosco (22930 Woodward Ave., Ferndale, MI, 48220 or the lighted boxes right next to The Magic Bag Theater) this week.  Actually, I’m just working there but doesn’t it sound much more luxurious and baller if I just say I’m partying.  Semantics I SAY!!!!

Tonight (which is a Wednesday for you people that think the Romans have the final word on time) we will be celebrating the birthday of Jared Sykes.

You might recognize this man from playing various pieces of percussion (and no “percussion” is not slang for “ladies”. lol. let the roasting begin).  He is also known for throwing killer parties and even more crazy after parties (if my girlfriend asks I’ve never been to these after parties and if the girls at the afterparties ask I’ve never had a girlfriend).  Anyways, the point of this there will be many people there, the ratio will be dope, and drinks will be strong.  If that’s not enough to convince you let me present exhibit B. My partner in crime Shaun.

Now onto Friday where the homie Frankie Bank$ will be spinning as part of the rotation.

He spins good shit, and we got half priced bottles of wine and champagne from 8-11.  So if you’re with you’re lady this is the spot for that after dinner drink on some Johnny Kemp “friday night, just got paid” ish.

Alright kids.  Spread the word on this if you don’t want me to get evicted from my home and hopefully next time I write I’ll have some good music news to share.  oh, before I forget shout out to the homie Selfsays (@selfischarles on twitter) for getting some burn on the Gilles Peterson show.  I would compliment him more but I’m extremely jealous and going into a dark place. lol. When I was in a better place I wrote a blog on him so search the site and get familiar.  in a minute.
