Someone to care someone to share lonely hours and moments of despair to be loved, to be loved oh what a feeling to be loved Someone to kiss someone to miss when you're away to hear, from each day to be loved( to be loved) to be loved (to be loved) oh what a feeling to be loved Some wish to be a king or a queen some wish for fortune and fame but to be, truly, truly, truly loved is more than all of these things Someone to kiss someone to miss when you're away to hear, from each day to be loved, to be loved, to be loved oh what a feeling to be loved to be loved (to be loved) to be loved (to be loved) oh baby, what a feeling to be loved I never had that feeling..but im sure its a beautiful thing..the day I truly meet the one who says what they mean..
large posteriors are a good thing..very good. #PSA
A young lady recently asked me “what do you do for a living?”..my response: “I live” (Furious Styles voice)
I can’t even front..gonna miss ol’ Cain man. You KNOW he got stories.
For anyone who is an aspiring musician of any kind, I highly recommend that you go and check out “THUNDER SOUL” while its in theatres. I am not the kind of cat that goes around breaking out tears in public..but your man had to hold some in after watching this movie…I am going to expound more on another blog that will review this movie (im on limited time due to gearing up for EDL Mondays in DTLA). But I have to give an honorable mention to Mr Conrad “Prof” Johnson (this was a HEAVY, HEAVY…HEAVY MAN..who was way ahead of his time). If anything. “Prof” was a reminder of the great men that I was LUCKY to grow up around that took the role of leadership to the next level. The story of “Prof” and the kids from Kashmere High School in Houston, Texas needs to be heard, it is a testament. I will cover more in the review, but whatever you do..I urge you to run out and take your family, friends and loved ones to to see this movie (It is a TRAVESTY that this movie was not branded or marketed properly..Yet, we are constantly bombarded with bs and tomfoolery. However, I SALUTE JAMIE FOXX for being instrumental in getting this story out to the masses..).
Shout out to Director MARK LANDSMAN (it was great rapping with you man!! The Marvin Gaye story is priceless!!!)
5:00am on the dot…(I do more by noon than most folks do in their entire day..seriously..) On my daily grind..
I just saw the coolest yet most powerful gesture..two people smelling roses in DTLA. #life
The Universe has been giving me very strong signals and high fives lately..Last nite was one of those moments. Im hanging out at an industry function, minding my business and the look of perfection walked in the room. I was literally smitten and dumbfounded.. Talk about the radar being close..
She is someone that I would consider my ultimate prototype if I had a specific type (which I dont, it varies..however..). She breaks “the rules” in so many ways..defiantly radiant! I cant even front, I was geeked the whole time. The day I hold a Rose?! She is way more beautiful in person..im still in awe..That woman is perfection to the max. F–king Red Hot!!!
“she’s so fine..my kneecaps got hard”
played another amazing epic nite in the wee hours last nite (dammit I LOVE HOUSE MUSIC and so should YOU! lol). “my friend” that I mentioned in the previous came through (as always!). she shared something with me that struck louder than a school bell or a broken glass..she looked at me and said “as of right now, I want you to press the reset button”. I knew exactly what she meant..we always end up talking about money, music, life or business whenever we link up. EYE could be in the highest of plateaus or the lowest of peaks…she has ALWAYS kept her word and her bond with me..that kind of loyalty is GENUINE LOVE at the end of the day.
Is it one day where Man can actually simply be human rather than a misguided perception of what a Man is considered to be? I have pondered this all of my life as I have always maintained a very Zen-like approach in all of my dealings (yet, always ready to deal with “non believers” in a very firm stance..NEVER get it twisted..). I have seen the other side my entire life where the effects of the male ego have taken over basic logic and in many cases dictated one’s mere existence. The one who flexes and pounds his chest the loudest is usually the BIGGEST punk at the end of the day. I have always been the silent type…what do I know? Just recently, I was in a jam where I had to put this gentleman in his place. It was an issue where there was a misunderstanding and his ego didn’t allow him to monitor his conduct. Thus, I had to retort in a language that he could understand and drive the point home in a stern manner (why was there a very attractive tall young lady who gave me a look as if she was ready to give me her social security number and all after she witnessed that situation…a brother gotta damn near act a fool to get some love..geeez..I cant be a nice guy! lol) Whats even crazier is that another young lady approached me and said that the guy was wrong in how he addressed me (I tolerate NO DISRESPECT period..). It was all a miscommunication issue from jump street. However, at the end of the situation, I came to the conclusion that it was all ego (I kinda flexed a bit too). But I wonder will there ever be a time where Man can co-exist where we all can be multi-dimensional and fully experience the various facets of simply being human without ego? Its very tricky in trying to work that balance. Just a thought.
Nobody gives u chances. U take them. Thats what separates leaders from cheerleaders.
A couple weeks ago, I was tapped to produce my first film score. Its still surreal for me but I am beyond excited!!! I dont want to give away too much but I will say the project is going to be BEAUTIFUL!! I’m pulling all the stops out on this one..I have some very huge shoes to follow and look up to..The CHANGE THE MOOD album is about to drop plus other projects I am producing and developing…I am FINALLY working with people who are capable, gracious, mega talented and ready to produce quality projects!! In a really good space! Full speed!!
No margin for error. If you are scared, you may want to invest in a dog.
I have to admit..This is my jam!! The General RULES!! Rufus Thomas would be proud!
Im not mad at Conan one bit..the better man should NEVER play second fiddle to any man. Make them RESPECT your brand.
I keep hearing all this hoopla about the discontinuation of Technic 1200′s in early 2010. Its plain ass backwards if they stop selling them, due to the fact that there is a new bedroom DJ born by the second. In addition, there is a major increase in new vinyl pressings and releases due to the high demand from a new generation of analog heads and faithful wax fiends.
If RANE is smart, they will buy the brand from PANASONIC and lower the price on those bad boys with a package deal including a RANE Serato mixer.
He only left the building..not his stock options.
For those that have long term memory (as most people don’t these days..). Remember this guy? They all rotate..
Before Pimpin’ Lou ..there was Robert Novak.

It can happen anywhere..be safe!
This is my dude right here..you are gonna need seat belts for this one. For those “in the know”, this cat has been going hard for a minute. For those that are just getting your Unique 74 education, it is a MUST that you observe, listen and learn about the one they call CAKTUZ TREE.
