Raye who.......Raye 6 Motherfucker!

I placed up a posting titled "Last Night I Had Sex With a Rock Star" . The posting was inspired by a show I had went to the night before. It was Raye 6’s Birthday and she was performing. Theophilus London and Jesse Boykins III , two other incredible artists also performed. Mad I missed London’s performance…smh. But Raye comes on and literally blows me away. I meet her afterwards….caught her ass in the car bout to pull I tell her how incredible she was and I head home. I wake up the next day still thinking about her performance. She did her fucking thing. No show have I went to, and seen a female performer pull another female on stage and goooooo in! In front of her mother at that.....CRAZY!!!!

So the idea hits me that I have to write about this night and thus "Last Night I......." was born. I hit Raye via myspace and tell her I did a write-up on the show. She hits me back saying she’s loves it, and she wants me to recite the piece for her EPK. Hell yea! So last night we shot it in BK. F.A.M. Productions did the shooting. The scene was dope. Raye is a talented motherfucker. So stay tuned for the footage. And go check my girl out!

No need to ask her why she's happy........

I heart stopped beating. It reached its destiny. I now run on love.......with....... Known to you as her, but she does not know you. All is to me, as I am to her. We don't speak, we communicate. She understands my wants, there for she provides what I need. I fucked society, because there is no thing I would not do for her. And she understood, but I disagreed. We stand eye to eye only and always, unless we're laying down.......she likes being on top.

Sex is another steamy subject. We created a syllabus and we both teach the class, so there are no failures. I succeed when she succeeds. And the only thing she has to attempt doing is thinking. Everything else is flawless. She smiles when I think of her; no need to ask her why she's always happy. She's in a good space. Parked right on my soul and there's no alternate side of the street parking so she does not have to move in the morning. We can stay in late and do what she calls "boo-loving".

This little light of mine........

I was just sent this pic. It is a pic of our next President....God Willing! There is so much to this great shot. It reminds us of the struggle that one must face, but also to not forget the light atop of the stairs. The scene of the shot is also cool. It looks like an inner-city school. I wish I knew who the photographer was. They definitely deserve love for this awesome piece of art.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed.......

Neither is information. It is simply transfered from one source to another.....

Albums are for fans. Singles are for newbies.

So, if you're nobody, and you're not live-based, focus on the single, that's all people want. Hook 'em with a few singles and you've suddenly got fans. Who want more. Does this mean a full-length, with fifteen tracks and seventy eight minutes of music? Probably not. After all, they've just come to know you. You don't want to get married after the first date. So, feed 'em three or four tracks. At an incredibly discounted price on iTunes if you must, a package price. Build slowly. And whenever you get a good-sized fan base, don't overload them all at once! Today's albums are incomprehensible. Too long, never mind too expensive. Better to put out three tracks five times a year than fifteen all at once. Not only do you maintain your buzz, your audience stays bonded, doesn't go on a hejira somewhere else, waiting years for your next opus, possibly forgetting you in the interim..

If you've already got a fan base, release that album if you must. But know that non-fans don't care. And, if they come to care via airplay, old wave media, they only want THE TRACK! If you learn of an act from a friend, you might want an album. But if you're dipping your toes, you don't want to get soaking wet!

As for keeping your tracks off iTunes... What are you about, money or a career? AC/DC is gonna sell a whopping number of albums at Wal-Mart, but they've got no buzz online at the iTunes Store, their album and its single tracks don't appear on the chart, never mind front page advertising. If you want to play an untelevised World Series, be my guest. But why play outside the stadium, by yourself. Some people would rather play basketball in Europe for more money, but most want the glory, and will stay here in the U.S.A. (Furthermore, the salary might be less, but the endorsements, the peripheral income, adds up.) You can reach those who truly care outside of iTunes, but the casual user, newbies, they're not gonna be affected, they're gonna be completely out of the loop, which is going to hurt you in the long run. iTunes is the Big Kahuna, why would you want to play outside its parameters?

So if you're making an album, don't think of world domination. Think of satiating your fans. If you must, include a catchy single for radio airplay. But it probably won't get airplay and will quite possibly alienate your core audience. If you're only about the core, don't sell out, feed your homies. But, if you want someone new, sell individual tracks online, allow people a taste. Better yet, give them a taste for free, just like dope dealers. If you're purveying really good shit, people will want more and will get hooked.

Hear it from the horse's mouth............

I hear a lot of artists talking similarly, but for some reason it sounds so authentic here..........

Poppy No Snitch............

Its funny.....I was watching an old episode of Def Comedy Jam and this comedian came on. He was clearly from the hood, and I mean that in the most positive way. He was tall with this deep distinct voice and funny as hell. Funny to the point that I wanted to know more about this dude. This man had talent! So as he concedes his performance the screen freezes and it says RIP Rasheed. It blew me away, because it was so unexpected. Here was I, eager about finding this guy because he had such a raw talent, only to find out he passed last year. I was speechless!

So I go look him up and I realize that I do know this guy. I had seen his Bad Boys of Comedy performance. "Poppy no snitch" was unforgettable. I don't know how I couldn't put 2 and 2 together. My boys and I have recited Rasheed's jokes countless times. Its sad to see one of our raw talents leave us so soon. Rasheed was 36 years young and he died from a heart-attack. Fellas we gotta protect our health. Shit we all, male and female need to go see the doc on the regular.

Click on the pics to view more info and videos of Rasheed. You are missed brother!

I have seen a huge backlash to Kanye and the current theme of his music lately. Im not gonna mention any names, but you all know who you How can I ever be great if I always meet your expectations? We should not question one that crosses outside of our boundaries into a realm not recognized by us immediately. We have to understand that we have been “programmed” to think but so far.....especially when it comes to music. There is an underlining current that is defying this, but that’s another posting. For an example of this just take a look at the latest XXL covers. Back to Yeezy though.

What artist of our day is pushing the boundaries the way Ye is? Don’t wait till later on to appreciate what is before you today. The nigga doesn’t cut his hair, he’s singing, he’s delivering the music before it’s finalized, when it’s finalized, stems, dope ass graphics, sick ass shows, and so much more. I hear people talking about “oh another love song”.....yada yada. The man is a genius. We are in a recession, and people are suffering. You dam right we need love. Ye keep doing your mother....fucking thing!

F the world if they cant adjust........

Blak Cars.........

I’ve been on this concept shit lately. Like random concepts just be hitting me and I try to write them down or store them someway. I’m sure I would be able to use them somehow later on. This one concept came to me as I was attempting to catch a cab… night. And if you’re a black male, then you know this can be tedious time-consuming task. Anyway during my hailing, I start to notice that every car appears black from a well enough distance. It hits me. We are all black cars! Take out the “c” to add some flava and to maybe avoid copyright issues later on and there’s the term. It’s a concept on unity.

Blak Cars is the foundation for my thinking. It is such a meaningful concept. You can adapt it to family, work, friends, or even as far as society as a whole. Blak Cars have no identity, except for its being. It just is, as we just are. There aren’t many thoughts in Blak Cars. There is no time for reckless mind activity, only action. It is rather difficult to determine the speed of a Blak Car. It appears from a distance to be moving in a slow-like motion, but as it approaches, the Blak Car is far from lagging.

Blak Cars are us with goals and destinations. A Blak Car is Kanye singing a whole album in Auto-tune. Fuck what you think. Hip Hop is a Blak Car. I am a Blak Car. This blog is a Blak Car. If you’re reading this right now, close your eyes don’t think……there’s a Blak Car. Life is full of Blak Cars; I’m just trying to stay one of them. Hope you are too.


Can I help you?

Life is at a fast pace and I ain't asking you to keep up, but since you're talking I'm only assuming. Call me an ass, but you won't call me a loser. Shit you could be an opportunity. I ain't never hear opportunity knock. I look out the window for that shit, then open the door before it gets upstairs.

I try not to play outside the virtual. There's no need for a quantum leap, unless I'm impressed in 30. If you ain't got a hit by then, what do you have? Songs of our lives have been made already, its up to you to do the soul searching. And yes music is for the soul. It is a reflection of the soul, there for I need my soul's music. I need the music made by you, here for me today, mirrored of my soul, reaching me in less than 30 before I'm 30. I need it in order to move forward......don't let TIM CON U, he doesn't want to CONTINUE.

Life is fast, but life is also real. We get pinched everyday trying to stay legal, yet laws are made to be broken. So I say on to you live life motherfucker! And don't stop playing your instrument, it is your only mode of solid expression. Speak to the heavens when you're feeling down and never ever ever ever ever forget....never trust a big butt and a smile, that shit is poison.

Last Night I Had Sex With A Rock Star!

Last night I had sex with a Rock Star. I just recently heard of her, but it wasn't until last night that I got to experience her. And boy the experience. Afterwards I thanked her and told her how incredible she was. She smiled and said thank you. I wish she didn't. I still feel like I owe her.

Her dress was so sexy. The way it hugged her exterior, had me losing control of my interior. I closed my eyes, but I still saw her. I grinned at her. She told me she could call me Daddy, but I never responded. I just watched and felt.........her. There were rose petals, bubbles, and even candy. I wanted to grab her by her hair, but I couldn't move. She had this sexy ass fresh cut. There were other people there, but I wasn't scared. I was actually open. Where did she come from? It didn't matter. I was just happy to be in her presence. I'm beyond feeling her at this point. She starts to get louder, I have to open my eyes. What is this that I am feeling? Is this really her? I tell myself don't question what feels right. I think she heard me, she starts touching herself while she looks at me. Is she serious? I forgot no questions. Just experience her I tell myself. And that's exactly how the rest of the night went. No words, not even thoughts from me. It was her show and she definitely did her thing. Raye 6......thank you for the experience. I can only hope for more.

This is talent mofo.................

Ok so last night was my first experience with sidecars. Got the idea from one of my favorite blogs....... Naked With Socks On Great drink, I must say. But awaking this morning, the only thought in my mind was I don't need nights like that anymore! Don't get me wrong, I had a great night. I started laying the foundation for an epic partnership, and even met a cool female. (Sidenote: I asked her where was she from, she replied "I don't know, but it sure aint from here". I was so moved by her answer) So it wasn't a bad night.....not a bad night at all. Its this dam morning. Sidecars at Tasting sidecars in the morning from the previous nights drinking......not cool. Oh and btw......I saw the free screening on Diametrics last night before my sidecars at the Dream Hotel. Great concept, makes a lot of sense, but you're not getting $20 for the book nor $50 for the "introductory course". Shout out to Theresa for making the bomb sidecars. Shout out to Ibe and Emcee Don! Nothing like an impromptu meeting on a rooftop in midtown with the smoke in the air. The city provided a great backdrop. And Shout out to Anslem for putting me oooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been eating soup every morning.....mostly chicken noodle from Mike's on 36th & 7th. It has become a part of my routine. I get some soup and a small roll, then Im on my way. It gives me that lil push in the AM/PM (I start work at noon), but without the meltdown of maybe a sandwich or something heavier.
Any other soup divers our there?
