Saturday in the A

Crazy energy out in Atlanta this weekend. 1st some of the premier sneaker afficionado's from all over the World are converging on ATL for Greg Streets Sneaker Friends function. Also Converse is having a b-ball tournament featuring Jim Jones(Cam'ron actually made a guest appearance), Jay Electronica, Sean Price and some other folks. There's also a Sean Price show tonite as well as Mayweather rematch with Sugar Shane Moseley. Also some good folks in town, but this is a positive weekend to start thinking about Summer and stacking. From the end of June to the End of July, I'm anticipating alot of craziness. Really all summer, but I'm planning on doin alot of travelling between those times.

EDIT: Caught up with Sean P! that show and chopped it up wit him and Sha Stimuli! Real Talk and a dope show = Winners in the Circle

DAME DASH ,yup I can relate


The enigmatic Dame Dash. Dame is an influence on me I can honestly say. YUP! Asshole because he's so adamant and passionate about his interests. I can relate. Aggressive to the point it's frightening to some. Again, I can relate. Saw two interesting articles you need to check. Peep




I hope for the best for Dame. Starting with fresh new talent like Curren$y and companies like Creative Control is a great start. I'm gonna sit down with him one day......WATCH!


M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.

New M.I.A video "Born Free'. Not to many artists seeing all. The freedom and depth of expression set her apart on a whole other level. It's about message and artistry. I really wish our Industry wasn't so soft and dickrider based and political, even Puritanical. We have the means to do it but no one wants to ruffle any feathers for fear of not being invited to the party and be able to tell tales of all the metrosex cats they got a chance to "hobnob" with. Part of the reason I'm kept on the outskirts and negative things are said about me is because I look at folks the same and I'm never overly excited to meet folks. Some people are insulted when you don't kiss their feet and you look at them directly in their eyes. It reminds them that at the end of the day there are folks out there who don't give a fuck about whatever their selling and it makes em uncomfortable. You either a yes man or a yes maaaam! or your ignorant and deemed someone not worthy of their presence. You don't know how many faces I've laughed in Loooolz when folks expected me to be blown away by meeting them. I keeps it 1 million so anyone expecting otherwise is in for a rude sleep, then a rude awakening..enjoy

Catch me if u can.......

is the new hustle. Yes I'm still expanding until I build up to the or something along those lines of that nature. I can't put my creativity into a box.

So many different interests and a hunger for more. I have a really amazing summer planned. Lots of getting fresh and traveling. Been soaking up alot of gems and the 1 I want to spread to you is that YOU are your content. YOU are your commodity. Once you realize your worth you can start charging appropriately. I'm blessed because alot of other blooggggers(or beams of light and thought bearers of collective consciousness) feel my wavelength and the ideas I bring forth. Dunno why, but it's a good feeling to inspire those folks I'm inspired by. Now it's about synthesizing appropriately. Some of y'all have been keeping up with me for a while. You've seen some sort of growth I hope. My Twitter page has usurped this particular blog, but it has given birth to the tumblr page above you. It's actually a more compact version of here. I don't have to get too wordy, and I can incorporate my photography alot more. It's getting me better at this actually. Again, I'm one of those rare cases of a dude who has actually been in the culture, street level, artist level, managing level, style level,journalist level, performer level. Not too many bloggers actually have that type of experience. They speak from the point of view as strictly fan/critic who have no experience hands on with the culture. That is one of the reasons I try to push thru and spread the word and maintain my relevance. Unfortunately I'm in the minority as far as my voice is concerned. Most people in power don't want to see a dude like myself get thru because their power becomes limited. Who is going to listen to some geek who was never hands on with the culture, but has a popular site because they have become a hub for artists who are confused as to how to use this new medium? I'm dangerous because of my standards and ethics and experience. Follow my daily struggle on twitter and peep this intereting drop from my homie Dallas.

New Inspiration

Aiiight, I'm back!!!!! Newly refreshed and recharged. I have decided to pick up the pen and let everyone(myself included) on the new direction. When I say that I am many things to many different people, I mean it. I found myself getting a little burned out and crossing my wires. I had wanted to contribute some good things over at Daily and so I decided to direct most of my energy over there to show and prove. It was an honor to be selected.....anyone who knows how far CJ goes with his writing, knows that it is a beast to keep up with him....... I still feel like I stepped up to the plate fully, but putting some stresses on myself may have held back my pen a little bit as I took some time to find voice and direction. I ended up just saying fuck it and staying in my lane and not forcing it. I'm still a collaborator, but I wanted to make sure that I also nurtured The Winner Circles and my other endeavors.

Mentally I operate as an artist. I think of the concept, work on a cover and then I complete and materialize it. This is a gift of mine. The curse is that it is not constant. I have to be inspired. When I am inspired, I feel like I'm one of the best at anything I put my mind to. No QUESTION. I see it, I want it, I get it!!!! I definitely make it happen, when I get off my ass. My new goals are somewhat immense. Peep. I'm still a contributor t some of your favorite blogs, I'm still getting a great amount of respect from those I respect and I'm generally in good health and spirits. Just typing this now is a blessing. No images right now, I'm on 1.

I plan to jump off an all inclusive dot com within the next few months. To those who know me. I mean really know me. You know I have different personas spread throughout these internets.....I have different monikers on every social media platform. A different myspace,facebook,ebay,twitter,tumblr as well as different names on these blogs I contribute to and support. MY SITE will consolidate all of these things. It has come a time to truly concentrate my energies and give you my pure feelings and expressions. My main goal this whole time was to experiment and see if it would be viable. My voice has been recognized, appreciated and respected from many of my peers. I feel as though it is time for me to fully immerse myself and share with everyone equally. WHO AM I? I am simply a black kid who grew up into a man and had some pretty good experiences which helped shape my outlook on this world. I am a man with aspirations to be greater only because I know I can be.

I also hope to totally become independent. I have been working on some entertaining podcasts, some original music, doing interviews with other artists and tying everything together in one little pill. I have just laid out everything in front of you. Now I ask that you tune in and see where it is going to.

Shouts out to a few blogs who provide constant inspiration. These sites have all fueled this one in some way or another, I appreciate all they've done for the kid.

I was gonna leave this 1..........Dear John letter shit.....but, I owe more to those who actually read this blog and enjoy it. Where have I been? Yeah as you can tell I been in flux for a while. I been grinding working as a Vid tech early in the am, streaming video from all over the world. I've been recording/producing expressing my art and staying creative. I've been travelling, I've been working on my home and I've been planning and networking for the future. Now to some, that won't seem like alot on the plate, but mix all that in with keeping the daily stresses and struggles at bay and keeping ones self healthy. I have been getting lazy with wanting to even dedicate the time to blogging. I have a ton of pics from my latest travels that may or may not see the light of day in this format. I just haven't been feeling giving people myself/thoughts/etc. I've been feeling like holding more for delf and being selfish. Not to say I am selfish, but as a creative person and "true" artist who paints life's canvas I honestly don't always feel inspired.

Some pretty great things have happened lately.

I got a chance to go up top and see a lot of friends I grew up with from like 6 years old. I got a chance to reconnect with family and further center myself. I released another free download project in 2009 which has been getting alot of positive feedback from those who took time and listened. I got to meet personally some folks I have only known online. I also have been presented with new opportunities.

I'm looking at doing some more work with this music and expanding the catalogue. I love the culture so this is more labor of love as opposed to business.

I'm guiding the brilliant direction of those others around me. Broady International, focusing on my company 4th Eye Media LLC and continuing to help with the expansion of <-Please if u follow me here, follow me over there and support that movement.

I've been invited to contribute to 1 of the fastest growing and hottest blogs around " Combat Jack's Daily Math <- Please check me and the other brilliant writers over there as well. Huge potential for that movement.

I plan on going back and furthering education by obtaining a cert for Networking( hey now in the present is when you handle the future)

Plotting more travel and expression and making my mark. Thanks for your taking time to come and visit this blog. The funny thing about this blog was that it was just my practice to get the Gritty Committee off the ground. I never intended to be here as much as I was. I just got into a groove and truly enjoyed the outlet. I may eventually revitalize this place with new energy, but my plate has been extra full. Expect some of the classic posts and some of the favorites to reappear at either Daily Math or the Gritty.....Hey no need to waste any good posts that maybe only 6 or 7 people saw....lolz.....

oh yeah as always I'm on twitter. Thanx for giving me a few seconds of your time. The positive reinforcement also helped push me further than I could have imagined.
