No One Wants To Hate Their Job

There’s nothing worse than waking up for a job that you hate. Lying in bed, struggling to remove sheets and covers as you try to ignore the alarm on your iPhone that plays the same portion of Tyler The Creator’s “I Ain’t Got Time” like it does EVERY morning feels like penance for some foul act that you committed in a past life. Make your way to the bathroom and stare at a worn face in a mirror, shake your head then pray that the shower rids you of your current neanderthal like disposition. After you put on your “appropriate” work attire, reality sets in as you walk out the door that the next 8 hours of your life will be just another battle in an ongoing war with no foreseeable end.

Olde City joint

1. Last night, I went to see Cam’ron perform at the Heineken Green Room event at the Underground Arts venue here in Philly. The line went around the block and it took almost about an hour to get into the building. Once there, Astro 8000, The DJ on the bill played until the crowd grew restless. When Cam’ron came out, all of the energy that I lost while standing around waiting for his performance, came back ten fold while he ran through hits from his 20 plus year career. I can tell you one thing though and I shouldn’t even have been surprised but the hood definitely came out to see the Dipset God. Shout out to Heineken now where’s my beer? Continue reading

Cam’ron Helped Me Out…

Let’s lift our glasses in honor of Cameron Giles aka Cam’ron aka Killa Cam. This isn’t about the music which I am a huge fan of nor does it have anything to do with the falling out with fellow Dipset member Jim Jones. Nope. Those topics have zero relevance in this piece. In the early 2000s, when Dipset was at it’s height, Cam’ron did what most rappers – besides Andre 3000 – wouldn’t do to stand out: He wore pink! Not only did he wear pink, he even owned a 2003 Pink Range Rover strictly for stunting purposes. What he did in that time broke me out of my shell and pushed me in positive direction in terms of defining my personal style. Continue reading

For The Morning: The Diplomats “Have My Money”

Getting to the money on a Thursday morning. I have to take care of paying my taxes as soon as I can to keep Uncle Sam happy. Any year that I don’t owe the IRS is a good one.

1. Good friends are hard to come by. Keep your circle tight and the communication open and honest.

2. John Wick 2 was absolutely great! The fight choreography, Common and Ruby Rose, and of course THE DOG made it an action packed experience.

3. Cam’ron’s Instagram Livestream > Jim Jones’ Funk Flex interview. Cam’ron was less emotional and much more entertaining.

4. The business of America is business. With all thats going on as of late, I’ve come to the immediate conclusion that creating a brand for myself is VERY NECESSARY. I’m working on a things  that I won’t mention until everything has been finalized. Whatever I present to the world has to be legit.

5. Never assume.

6. Stand on your own accomplishments instead trying to climb upon the associations of others.

Peace to Jay Dee…

Thank You Jay Dee…

As much as I love Jay Dee aka Dilla, it’s been hard to listen to his music for the past few years. It’s nothing to do with the quality as most of his creations are timeless. The fans that emerged post February 10th 2006 and the exploitation that followed ruined my enjoyment. That, plus the multiple 2Pac like posthumous releases that seem to come out of nowhere like distant relatives when you’ve won the Powerball for a few hundred million. Continue reading
