Keepin it TRUE!!! .:Oct 09 10:.
So... I got to do a mixtape for the fams at TRUE in SF as a part of their "CLERKS" series. The way it works is the homie Justin picked the tracks and I mixed it the way I usually do... pretty boring right? NAHHH I try to keep you entertained. =) If you are in the BAY AREA make sure you stop by TRUE and pick up this LIMITED edition CD ONLY available in San Francisco. BIG UP HIRO, MICHAEL, JUSTIN and the ENITRE TRUE staff. The cover looks like THIS VVVVVVVVV
BBoy Summit 2010 .:Oct 09 10:.
Another first in my book. Shout out to Kumari, Belle, and Alexis for the hook up. It wasn’t what I expected, but it was pretty fresh nonetheless. You straight up had a Locking, Popping, Waacking, House, and Bboy/Bgirl battle. With shows in between. Mad styles in the building. The craziest thing though was the 41 contestants for the popping battle. Apparently, LA don’t play with the popping skills. A few cats even had beef all day which resulted in them handling it on stage. Pretty fresh. Luckily, I managed to record the house battles WHILE taking pictures. Mad love for the style. So enjoy suckas.

Fil-Am Festival 2010 .:Oct 09 10:.
This was the first time I’ve been to the festival. All I can say is that it was mad fun people watching. You had hella high school kids rolling around in clicks forming bigger clicks with other clicks. Then you had the “couple walk” where the guy pretty much walks in sync behind his girl while holding her. Straight comedy. You also had the cats from the hood throwing up the gang signs while walking around with the biggest pitbull I’ve ever seen. I would’ve asked to take pictures, but I’m not going to lie. I was scared. Also, peep the Pinoy Apparel hat. Super fresh. It reads Phillipines one way, then it reads Los Angles upside down. Mad ill.

EXCERPT FROM INTERVIEW: Hip Hop Rec dot Com
Why did you decide to not be in your last video Winter and just use actors?
If your an artist of any type whether it’s a DJ, Painter, Musician, Rapper, etc. and you need someone to show the world your work, no one will do a better job than John Henry Baliton and John Bollozos of www.clementco.com.
I personally couldn’t wait for the guys at Clement & Co to do a video with me, but at the same time I couldn’t be back home in LA. So they had the great idea of letting it be a work of art that speaks for itself and for the focus to be on the lead girl instead of me. They understood that with “Winter” my goal was to communicate a message, so I agreed that it would be best if I wasn’t in it so that you the audience would focus on the message.
I thought it was genius, so they ran with it and the video is amazing.
And because of their working I’m going to let talented videographers all over the world do the same for me. Right now my management is talking to Gabriel Gomez (http://twitter.com/bklynfilm) who is a 19 year old videographer from Brooklyn, New York. He may do the same thing that Clement & Co did but for a different song. I believe in loyalty. Those who are down with me now will be on speed dial forever. For instance, I plan on working with Clement & Co for my entire career.
