My First Personal Post + Verse

Well this is new for me. I'm very secretive protective of my music; I don't can't just let anyone hear it. It's very special to me. I don't want to release anything until I feel it's as perfect and complete as possible. Most of the music I post on here comes from established artists, including my favorites "the J's" (SC, Cole, Elec.), 'Ye, and others. I can humbly say I'm not there yet; but I'm working and Lord willing, one day I'll be where I want to be.

I said all that to say this: I've realized I need to let people see something. I guard all my material like my life depends on it but I recently had an epiphany when I posed this question to myself: "how can people become interested in your music if they never hear it?" Obviously, the answer was they couldn't.

So, with that being said, here's a verse I wrote Wednesday afternoon this past week. Let me know what you think. in the comments section. If you actually took the time to read all of this (or even visited the blog for that matter) thank you, I really appreciate it. I'll probably start doing this regularly so get used to it. Enjoy and once again, thanks.


P.S. Shout out to my homie Modi for making me step my blogging game up with more personal posts. 

While yall wanna get laid, momma told me get paid,
Ain't no money waiting on me in between no legs,
There's paper out here to be made and the time's keep changing
But jobs ain't paying and these souls need saving
Now I'm slaving--I can't tell a bum from a nun
They all beggin--and crumbs don't easily come
Kids need raising--'cause most emotionally numb,
Forced to grow up too fast and don't know how to be young,
So how did all this become? Don't know where it begun,
Wonder-un if we content being dumb having fun
Maannn-I'm done, consider this a tale of the slums,
Where even old ladies, war ready, holding they guns
But nah, yall don't hear me The problem? It's hard to fight it
The world is on auto-pilot and I ain't claiming I'm righteous
Just looking toward the future but don't call me a psychic,
Take the world as I see it and write it then recite don't bite it

Youtube Classic: "Rent Is Too Damn High!"

If you haven't seen this already I suggest you take this moment to do so. 

Former Black Panther Jimmy McMillan is running for Governor of New York and he represents the Rent Is Too Damn High Party. This is not a joke, I couldn't make this up even if I wanted to. Oh course he didn't win but the clip is definitely worth watching. Nerv, get on those shirts! Enjoy!

Here's the complete audio footage:

And the press conference after the debate:

P.S. For the record, he's right!

MTV Speaks w/ Drake on Upcoming European Tour, J. Cole, and "Friday Night Lights" Feature

Here's an article posted by JR from an interview he did with Drake; the title says it all. Catch the article below:
Drizzy is a busy man these days. Somewhere between working on his new album, an R&B mixtape, and possibly hitting the studio with the newly freed Lil Wayne, Drake is scheduled to launch the European leg of his tour at the top of the new year, and he's picking up a new opener for the run. Although he's replacing Tyga, he'll still have another highly lauded, up-and-coming MC: J. Cole.
While fans on both sides of the Atlantic will wonder what the two have in store, Drake told Mixtape Daily they haven't really discussed the outing yet. What they have talked about is recording together. Drake revealed that he managed to find time to do a record for Cole's mixtape Friday Night Lights, which drops on Friday.
But the Toronto lyricist warned the track might not be the lyrical face-off many are expecting.
"It's called 'In the Morning.' It's like a record for the girls," Drake told the big homie Sway over the weekend. "Me and him will probably have many opportunities to rap, and try and out-rap each other. But it's not about entertaining the 'who's better?' debate that I'm sure everybody else is engaged in."
Drake said that the two are actually friends — Drizzy shouted out Cole each night during his recent Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour­ — and they wanted to do a record together that had nothing to do with flexing lyrical muscle. The pair just wanted to do something for the ladies.
Drake also said he and Cole haven't indulged in the kind of behind-the-scenes freestyle battles that sometimes become hip-hop lore.
"Kanye is the only guy that ever does that; he just conjures up a cipher out of nowhere. I remember when we were shooting 'Digital Girl,' and it was me, Jamie Foxx, and Dream and 'Ye, just all in one shot, and [Kanye] was like, 'Yo, what y'all got right now?' " Drake recalled.
He did admit, though, that the two young MCs might sharpen their skills across the pond.
"I think there will be plenty footage of us just spitting," Drake said.

Another week, another set of highlights. The Clippers are going to be the most entertaining team with a bad record this year. Mainly because of Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon. Their Saturday night battle with the Jazz has been the best game of the season by far. Check out EG's game tying dunk on the entire state of Utah. Enjoy!

P.S. Shoutout to these guys:
