HOME?

Today I started my move to my folks place in Antelope Ca, which is part of Sacramento county. I hate the idea that I just moved to my parents place. THIS SUCKS! but since the job market sucks right now this is the best thing to do. Today I only packed the important things which is my clothes and kicks. I will be going back to San Francisco this coming thursday to get the rest of my stuff because I will have to be in the city for the next GETLIVE party at MILK BAR SF (quick plug). My plan is not to unpack because I am looking at this as a really really really long vacation. And If I unpack I don't want to get comfortable also I have faith that this move will be TEMP!

THANK YOU

With Turkey Day tomorrow I just want to share what I'm thankful for.....

Even though the past 2 years have been my most challenging years I've had to go through, I still am very thankful for everything and everyone I have. I want to say thanks to my parents for supporting me with every life decision I make. I'm thankful that they are letting me move into there crib while I try to figure things out. I'm Thankful that they are always there for me when I'm in need. And I'm Thankful that they are my parents.

Since Both sets of my parents live outside of San Francisco ( my moms live in the O.C and My dad and step mom aka my other real mom live in sac county) I tend to turn to my 2nd family for guidance and that would be the Homies! I am thankful that they are who they are. I am Thankful that they are caring, thoughtful, patient, loving and funny. Without yall life would just be so bland.

Even though nothing is going my way right now I am still thankful for all these challenges that Im going though. Without these challenges I would have never really found myself. Staying postitive is the hardest thing to do right now but being positive is all i really have.

HAVE A NICE AND SAFE THANKSGIVING..

STREETLIGHTS

Photobucket

Last night I had a hard time sleeping. What I usually do when I can't sleep is listen to music. So I started to listen to all the Kanye West 808 and Heartbreak songs that were leaked. Everybody already knows about LOVE LOCKDOWN and HEARTLESS so I won't even get into those 2 songs. The song that caught my attention is a song called STREETLIGHTS. We all know that Kanye is going a different route with this new album with all the singing hes doing and that damn autotune. And I know there are hella haters on there hating on Mr. West because they arent used to this type of music coming from him. I don't know about yall but I'm really feeling this type of Kanye ( no karamo). Dude lost his mother, a broken heart from a broken engagement., Dude is just going through the healing process with making music. Can't hate him for that. Feel me?

On this song Yeezy basically repeats the same verse and chorus over and over again. He starts off with:

Let me know
Do I still got time to grow
Things aint always set and stone
Let me know, Let me know
Let me
Seems life

Street lights, glowing
Happen to be just like moments
Passing, in front of me
So I hopped in
The cab and I paid my fairs
See I know my, destination
But I'm just not there

***

I dig this!!


Streetlights - Kanye West

ANYONE EVER TELL YOU...YOU LOOK LIKE..VOL.4..THREE THE HARDWAY

These 3 dudes have a a lot of similarities. And to me they all look like they can be related. One is an NBA player who is a straight hustle dude on the court but in NBA2k9 he is a beast. One is The lead rapper/singer for GYM CLASS HERO'S. And the last one "Got busy in a burger king bathroom. Tell me what y'all think about these three dudes that look alike.

YOU ARE.....

Photobucket

I've been giving this album alot of burn. Its really soulful and groovish ( yes I just made up a word). There are 12 tracks on this cd and everyone knows about her hit AMERICAN BOY but the jawn that I'm really feeling is a song called YOU ARE which feat. John Legend. This is definitly a song you can just groove to while your cleaning the pad, washing the dishes, taking a shower or a bath, taking the bus or just in your room getting ready for a night out on the town. I'm even listening to it while I do this blog entry. JL and Estelle have perfect voices that mess well together. I really think they should do an album together. They got that smooth back and fourth flow which I think is really fresh. Peep the lyrics:

You Are (Feat. John Legend) - Estelle



YOU ARE
[Estelle:]
Every Little
Every Little

[John Legend:]
The first time I met you
You were so quiet and cool you
Never thought that you would kiss my heart the way you did
All of the sadness in passing
Making me feel like I'm past it
But you really end in the sweetest way

Oh I'm so commended by you
All in my music all you
Do you keeps me surfing on the hook that we can be together are you
I hope you listen to this
I hope you get to feel this
Because everything is you
Come on

[Estelle & John Legend:]
Come close to me
Only your love can do me
Every little thing I do you are
Baby you know your special
I don't care what the rest do
Every little thing I do you are

[Estelle:]
If love had a face then it's you
Made for me how did you know
The best type of love who must have led you to hurt me
If there's anything I can do
Let me know I'll be a fool
But don't take advantage cause I will hate to have to leave you
Your touch makes me feel like a woman
Takes me beyond feeling human
When you touch me oh the smell of you
When we're alone it's beautiful
Makes me nto want to leave you no
Everything is you

[Estelle & John Legend:]
Come close to me
Only your love can do me
Every little thing I do you are
Baby you know your special
I don't care what the rest do
Every little thing I do you are

Come close to me
Only your love can do me
Every little thing I do you are
Baby you know your special
I don't care what the rest do
Every lttle thing I do you are

[Estelle:]
Ooh when your lying next to me

[John Legend:]
I can't believe your next to me

[Estelle:]
It's only us in this moment

[John Legend:]
No interuptions we focus

[Estelle:]
Tell you I'm glad I risked it

[John Legend:]
God knows that I would have missed it

[Estelle:]
You're so amazing baby everything you do
Come close to me

[Estelle & John Legend:]
Only your love
Everything little thing I do you are
Baby you know your special
I don't care about the rest
Everything little thing I do you are
Baby
Baby you are
Baby
You Are
Baby You Are
Baby


The Chorus says it all.....


I APPRECIATE GOOD MUSIC.. IF YOU DON'T, THEN THATS WHEN YOU LOST!

TRAIN OF THOUGHT

Photobucket

Today I wanted to try something new. So I took Amtrak to Sacramento to visit my folks. This was so last minute that I didn't even tell my parents that I was coming over until the train stopped in Sacramento. Thank god my mom had the day off so she ended up picking me up from the station. Well anyways... as for the train ride it was actually pretty dope. It was very scenic. The train went along the water which I thought was cool. Stopped in Davis, Ca. near the school, and also went through the hood of Richmond which was pretty intresting..LOL! I thought the train would have Wifi but I was wrong so there was not much I could do but think and just close my eyes. I thought about how living in sacramento would be. I thought about how it would be actually living under my parents roof again after basically living on my own for almost 10 yrs now. I thought about the fact how hard it is to find a freakin job, well one of my liking of course. I thought about 4 MISTAKES I made in the past and what life would be like if I never made those mistakes. I thought about friendships and how I am happy that I got a great set of homies. And I thought about how these past 2 yrs have been pretty sh*tty for me.. give or take a few goodtimes. And I thought about H.E.R, why? I don't know. Its just hard to get her out my mind.

YEA I KNOW...PRETTY RANDOM

SNEAKER PIMP...IT CONTINUES

Photobucket
FROM L TO R

Tues. 11/4 Air Jordan 4 retro " Spike lee joints" I just felt like rocking some J's. And for some reason I feel that these shoes go well with Yellow.

Weds. 11/5 Air Spiridons- These are my favorite kicks of all time. The first time I got these i skated in them and it messed up the toe area. I was pissed! And till this day I'm still trippin over the fact that Anthony found these in a Ross out in the sticks a while back for 19.99.

Thurs. 11/6 Airmax90s Infrareds- It was a rainy day so I used these beaters to run a few errands aka get some groceries from the market to make fried chicken.

Fri. 11/7 Timberland Field boots- I gave these to Alano back in December because I didn't want them anymore. But it was raining that nite and it was the last day to promote the GET EM HIGH party. So I hit him up asked if i can rock them to bring back that NY steeze. plus my timbs are all beat up.

Sat. 11/7 Adidas Rod Lavers- Got these on the same day since I needed something green to rock that nite since all my RC homies were gonna rock green for me. Shout out to Candice from the Adidas Originals store in Berkeley. Thank god they still look brand new after attending a party that was packed.

QUICK SHOUT OUT TO THE HOMIE MAN G. If thats you who frequents my blog from Clifton NJ, i'm glad you made it back home. And how was that cross country drive homie? must have been an experience. Holla at me.

OH YEAH.. YO DENNIS CHECK THIS OUT CHALLENGE

I WISH YOU THE BEST, I GUESS?

Photobucket

Yesterday I picked up the new John Legend album EVOLVER ummm I mean downloaded it off the internet cdq btw. Earlier in the day I hit up the homie reegsta via IM (who makes phone calls anymore) and asked him how he liked the album. His answer, " I couldn't get past the first couple of tracks." I know how that is! You get stuck on one song and keep playing it over and over again because it hits you like BLAMMMM! That song hit home. So instantly once the album was DL'ed I pressed play and scanned it really quick and booya...TRACK #4 instantly hit me. I IMed reegsta with the quickness and said, " its track #4 isn't it?" and it was!! This song though...IT SPEAKS THE TRUTH.. I know everybody has at least lived this song regardless if you are a woman or a man.


Everybody Knows - John Legend

This is the first verse from the song:

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please say
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
'Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

The title of this entry explains it all..."I WISH YOU THE BEST, I GUESS" how many times have you said " I wish you the best" to someone you really felt and really didn't mean it. Shoot I'm gonna be upfront... I said it a few times and I know for sure I didn't mean it. Yeah it may sound funny or messed up but its the truth. Of course I don't wish anything bad but I know for sure I didn't wish them the best because when it comes down to it....YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE THE BEST.


BTW: GET THIS ALBUM!! or let me know, I can burn it for u.

GONE!

Challenge # 2

The thing is, she states on her list that she wants to WIN A BUS SURFING CONTEST. If you accept this challenge and lose does that mean it stays on your "tabo list" because I plan on beating you!

IF I...........

If i didn't quit my job 2 years ago I wonder how life would be,
would it be much easier and would it be stress free.
would I get along with my boss or would I just suck it up,
and would I even be in this situation waiting for some luck.

If I never had knee surgery how would life be,
would I be banging down low instead of shooting the three.
Could I wake up every morning and not feel any pain,
and play every damn minute in my basketball games.

If I were to move to another city how would life be,
would I be lonely because all I have is me.
would the transition be tough or would it be easy,
and would the people I leave behind even miss me.

If I never met you how would life be,
i'm not even gonna think about this i'm just gonna let it be
cuz i'm glad your real friend
hopefully you got my back, cuz i got yours till the end.


BTW- i am not emotional, i just like to share my thoughts.. NAW MEAN!!!

CHALLENGE

We all love ice cream and supposedly no one loves ice cream more then my homie 
THE UGLYSTICK.  So I think it would be fun if to extend a challenge to an ice cream eating contest to my homie Uglystick.  I honestly think I could win. But according to everyone who I had dinner with today already has me as the underdog and thats fine.  If I win,  all I gotta say is I TOLD YOU SO.  

Here is the challenge:  First one to eat a quart of ice cream wins.  We can get whatever ice cream we want and we both have to use tea spoons.  So are you down?

SNEAKER PIMP

If you really know me then you know that I love KICKS!!!! I own a good amount of sneakers not more then Reegsta but I do own enough to rock one for each day of the month for 2 months and then some. So last Friday I decided that I wanted to start to rock a different pair of sneakers for the next 30 days. And here is what I rocked so far:

Photobucket


L to R

FRIDAY:  Nike SB Blazers " Mission Street edition": It was Halloween so I had to get into the spirit even though I really didn't do much that day.

SATURDAY:  Nike Air Force 1 " World Cup edition" Brazil's: It was a rainy day and I needed to promote for my Party. And I didn't want to rock "beaters" (sneakers that you don't care about anymore because they are messed up) in the club because I know damn well woman still look at what shoes men are wearing. So I rocked these bad boys because they are patent leather so it was pretty much rain resistant.

SUNDAY:  Adidas Stan Smiths: Its a Sunday so I wanted to rock some "kick it" sneakers.  And these Adidas are the best shoes to hangout in.  These are mos def my favorite Adidas of all time and yes ALL DAY I DREAM ABOUT SEX (A.D.I.D.A.S)

MONDAY:  Nike Sb Dunks " Shimizu's"  These shoes are my beaters.  It was raining hard today and I didn't feel like rocking Timbs so I wore these kicks because it matched the shirt I wore. Haha.

Remember: Kicks are supposed to be rocked, then put back in the box!

Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters = CHANGE

Since i made the mistake by not re-registering to vote when I moved I made the decision to go to City Hall and vote.  Needed that voter protection cause I wanted my vote to count.  Left the house around 11am to make my way to City Hall.  Grabbed my ipod shuffle and my sidekick and made my way.  Thank god i brought my phone and ipod cuz I was in line for almost 2 hrs.  2hrs is nothing when we need change.  It felt great being with all types of people.  And it was great seeing a lot of young people and first time voters in line.  I even ran into an old coworker in line and we had a little debate over prop 8.  But it was all out of fun.  Even though i know she disliked me when we worked together.  But that's another story I can blog about some other day.  So remember to vote tomorrow.  Its time for a change.  WORD UP!

BIG UPS!! to the homie Norm who is out in vegas for OBAMAS counsel for change.  Keep doing what you do mang!!

HEAVY ROTATION

These albums have been getting a lot of spins these past couple of weeks.  Some of these albums may not be of your taste and if so, I ain't trippin good music is good music.  And don't trip about my street credibility...I'M GULLY!  Peep game!

THE BOYS : MESSAGE FROM THE BOYS 
Photobucket
Sometimes you gotta listen to music from your childhood years.  This Album came out 1988 so I was in 4th grade.  Don't you just wish at times you can just be a kid again and not have to worry about bills, work, economy and all that other bullsh*&t.  I remember this was the album to have when I was in grammar school.  If you don't know who THE BOYS are, you are either way to young or you don't know music.  So hopefully you were born after this album came out.  I'm not sure what these dudes are up to now but rumor has it they are rappers now.  Who knows. 

Here is the video for my favorite joint from this album.

LUCKY CHARM

VIVA LA HOVA: MICK BOOGIE & TERRY URBAN:
Photobucket
This is a Jay-Z and Cold Play Mash-up Mixtape.  This is one of the Best Mash-up mixtapes I have heard to date.  All you Cold Play Stan's are gonna hate me for this but I really think Cold Play is boring.  Their music is just so slow to me.  Don't get me wrong but Chris Martin has a unique voice but DAMN! I can really fall asleep to it.  But when you add Jigga man's vocals over Cold Play beats that has each producers flavor to each song, you got an instead BANGER!  If I were you I would download it.  If not, your a lost one...

VIVA LA HOV

ANT ONE PLAYS THE JAZZ: ANT ONE (RISKY BIZNESS CREW)
(could not find the album cover on the net)
Photobucket
The homie and fellow ARHS alum Ant1 of Risky Bizness dropped a nice gem for everyone to DL off his Facebook page.  If you are a Jazz fan (no Utah) this is a must have mixtape to have.  Nothing but classics on this one.  I suggest you roll up a funny cigarette and just get lost in the music. 

FOR YOUR EARDRUMS:

SANTOGOLD: SANTOGOLD

Ever since I went to her show last month i've been bumping her album for about 2 weeks now.  I never thought I would feel Electro music but damn! the beats are on point.  Props go out to Weezy for sending me her album via email.  I got that poster for you still from her show.

DJ DRAMA GANGSTA GRILLZ PRESENTS THERE IS NO COMPITION: FABOLOUS
Photobucket
This is the best street mixtape I have heard in a while.  For some odd reason FAB is a beast on mixtapes but when it comes to his own material he's not up to par.  Dude always bodies (kills) other peoples tracks and his punch lines are 2nd to none.  Out of all the DJ Drama mixtapes this one is the best.  

GET EM FAB!! CHOICE CUTS:
