If Kanye farts you could bottle it up in a jar and call it KING colone, no wait that’s Puffy colone.  Let the hype begin for one of the ugliest shoes made.  This reminds me of a shoe Patrick Ewing would of wore back in the 80’s only thing is you could get away with this in the 80’s and the hi-top would actually be for ankle support not to look like Nike Uggs!  Its rediculous what people are raving about.  Well if Yeezy can make grown folk where plastic glasses that look like mini venitian blinds, oh well he might as well make an accessory for these shoes, make a pair of snap on Nike Knee pads with extra padding on the knees, and you know what you can do with that accessory, don’t forget to come up for air, i mean Nike Air.

Props, the flick is clean and well put together.  Now i feel like copin’ some Oink

Yup, im hear for that gut check. Do you use Serato? Were you a vinyl junkie? Did you go digging at least once a week? Did you care about the picture cover over the white label promo? If thats you and you now use Serato i’m hear to check you like a hockey player! As much as i love that fact that you don’t buy records and you sell off your joints, only benefits me and the homies, it is my duty to make sure you know what your doing and that you are prepared for regret years from now. Cool, now go play your mash ups of 80’s, punk rock, & with that new crap like kid cudi, kid sister, kids in the hall, and cool kids. You cool. To cool for True School.

oh you still hear….what are you doing go play “music” to a bunch of Yuppie wanna be hipsters, yup now Yuppies wanna be Hipsters. Oh and the Hipsters will one day want to be Yuppies, cuz being broke and uptight is wack compared to paid and tight ass. Play your MP3’s and remixes downloaded from blogspot! (wordpress what!) If you notice nobody gives a flying monkey butt if u are killing a blend, remixing live, trick mixing, and scratching…as long as they got their drank and you play something that they can dance their uncoordinated self too…chill yall lets laugh.

Big ups to my wifee’s cousin Reina and Happy Birthday to my uncle Angel. Had a birthday dinner a the Moana Surfrider Sunday night. The night started out seeing the fat guy from Borat! Brother looked mean. Was stoked to see him but not as geeked. Right after we finished dessert i see this tall chiseled face man walk by my table. His look is so distinct that i started asking around if anyone thought that was Vinnie Jones – Swordfish, Snatch, Gone in Sixty Seconds, X-Men, and my favorite Lock Stock and 2 Smoking barrels. Nobody knew who i was talking about. So i mustard up the courage and decided to ask for a pic. As i walked over there nervously, i was thinking 1 of 2 things could happen….

– he shuts me down and calls me a Bloke or he decided to take a pic and asks me if i would like a roll in his next movie?

Well only one of those thing happened. As i bent down to quietly ask, “Excuse me, sorry to interrupt, are you Vinnie Jones?” He answered, “Yes” . I proceeded to ask, “can i get a picture?” Vin Rock took a quick second and then replied, “Where are you sitting i will come to you” Bamb, now he is at my table cool as ever, take a pic, and shakes my hand, then out. Had to watch Lock, Stock, and Two smoke that night when i got home! so fresh. Best Night.

God has been blessing me and my fam tremedously! I am not one to preach, i live thru my actions and when the oppertunity shows it i take it. This time i need to give props to God. Many of my friends hate on God, don’t believe in God, and blame God for all bad things. Constantly telling me “why this, why that, why me?” If those people that doubt God so much handled their situation and gave God a chance i believe that he will come thru. Handle yours and let God handle his = Blessings! I slaved thru College, never believed in higher education, but i did it, paid dues working as sub teacher, owner of a mediocre business, classroom presenter, skateshops, and now God hooked me up with a Job that requires a Master Degree, working with At-risk youth. Never in my farthest reaches thought i would be here.

Well you could say that with out God, I paid the dues and because I paid those dues on my own I deserve that job. Nope. All the other applicants had more experience and a Masters degree. So those other applicants paid more dues than me and deserved the job, right? Thats my point, i believe that God handled his part. Yes, i paid my dues, College full-time working full-time, djing at night, going to class at 7am. Paid for all my own ish. My Dad peace out and i had to man up early on. Did i blame God? No, i said God, “i’ma handle what i can control – school, job, relationships, music, friends, & family, but i need you to hook up the rest”. Yes a gang of times i was like God, “where the heck are u?” but i look back on those times and majority of those “what the hecks?” i put myself in those situations. I believe everyone will have their time where God will let you know that he is real in your life. I don’t know when that is, but if i can help to put it into any kind of perspective i hope i did. God Bless, God Blesses.

After Church took care of the keiki and was off and Skating. Called Observ, work. Called Fybes, he was going to Kaneohe-never have enuff time. So i decided to mash to AMR. As i was about to make the turn into AMR, i was discouraged by the MP’s check ID…so i decided to mob around Moanalua. Checked that one spot with ledge-ledge-4 stair, too much flag football peeps. So i went up a bit and skated this rail…

Yah right! 5 years ago yes. Now heck no. I marveled at it and claimed to be back when i am in top skate shape??? So i decide to skate the Lua.
p3150003

Small kind kicker to ledge. Once again flag football madness so i only got in a boardslide. Def, nose slide and crooks is in order next time i go. So i mashed out to Manana the home of the ugliest graffiti ever! Wack toys, which i bet are majority skaters who wanna be BIES.

Bumped into BLACK ONE and we chopped it up. Had a few runs. Skated flat with Young B and Lil’ B. Then skated watch Young B and Lil’ B kill with b/s nollie heels, backtail bigspin out, and nollie back smith. Can’t wait to open the shop and run the westside in Graff/Hip-hop/Music/& Skateboarding. 3 hours of skating was not enuff. So need to skate more, i just read a interview with Brian Tucci – DC legend. A bit older than me but top shape, i got hella inspired. Time to put in work

Side note, God has been blessing me and my fam tremedously! I am not one to preach, i live thru my actions and when the oppertunity shows i take it. This time i need to give props to God. Many of my friends hate on God, don’t believe in God, and blame God for all bad things.

Its late, i’m buggin out. Two word DANTE ROSS. He is like Bobbito Garcia minus the Basketball.  Well maybe he can ball.  I love to listen to Dante, he is a well spring of Hip-Hop knowledge and a Historian of real Hip-Hop.  There are times when i feel like Hip-Hop is really wack and gone to the Sh*ts.  Well Dante Ross feels the same way and it helps me validate it.  One thing that i disagree with him is that Pac Div, Wale, and those cats are the Next!  Sorry Dante those kids are sub par and should never be compared to the Pharcyde.  It goes back to my Safe Rap theory.  Anyway.  Dante Ross is Boss.  go to the Berrics and check Reda as he interviews him and ask great questions.  Big ups!

If you want something done do it yourself. This is something i have lived by for years! A few years back i felt LS site was on chill. Even though i was blessed with the illest web, design, & illustrator friends, there was things i needed done instantly. I took only a few html classes in college and knew the basics. Just that i was busy making music,doing events, and traveling.
Within this past year or so i have been spending late nights (12 to 3am) teaching my self the art of “wordpress”. Props to dem cats for inventing such a user friendly platform for beginners, novice, and experts to freak.  The aesthetics and design i lack an abunance, but i try to keep it simple and straight forward.  Informative.  I would like to give a few shout outs.

Mahalo to WordPress for creating such a awsome communticating tool, for those who use blogspot – one day you will learn.  Props to Google for helping with every problem on coding, html, colors, illustrator, photoshop, and finding fresh fits!  Spects goes out to 1PixelOut.net – and the creator of that site Martin Laine for creating the app to post music and for not making the player wack.  Also the fact that he makes the music fades when you stop it, Sweet!  Fibes who curated the LS site for years on the strength he believed and loved what we stand for. And YOU, yup broshot and sister sledges, thanks for reading this and supporting Hawaii Hip-Hop and fresh culture.

There is a craze going on in the battle rap community. Rapping only writtens at battles. This is nothing new but before you would get crucified if you ever spit a written at a battle. Now it is shunned apon if someone didn’t come with writtens. Majority of these mc’s who enter these battle suck at performing and making actual songs. So i was surprised to see Noah 23 in this battle. Why? Majority of Hip-hop artists that have been making music, touring, performing, and building a fan base think of these rap battles with the same feeling as me. So it was good to see Noah 23 killing it.
