Bangin in Ipod, Deck and Dock….

Hey, hey, hey.  What’s going on my people?  How have we been doing lately?  Well, I know it’s been a while since I last wrote or spoke about something.  I know, I know I’ve falling off, but with good reason.  This past summer was a busy one for me, I had family reunions, work and businesses all running and happening at the same time.  It was a lot to deal with, talking about breaking down and not wanting to move.  Well, that’s all over now and all parties involved had a wonderful time.

Man, family is not the only thing, it’s everything.  Everything we do is a reflection in some way, shape or form of family.  Family comes in all shapes and sizes, you don’t have to be related to people by blood for them to be your family, did you know that?  Look, God puts people in our life for reasons and seasons, some longer than others.  It’s best that we just enjoy this shit (JETS, Curren$y shit) and focus on the positives and block the negatives and deal with them as a family.  Sure, there’s always going to be drama, what family doesn’t have any?  However, what doesn’t break us, makes us stronger and the what better way to become stronger than with the ones you love and love you.  So whenever you have an opportunity to enjoy you family take it and let all the drama go and always rep them JETS (Just Enjoy This Shit).

Segway on to the main topic of this post as it relates to family.  What i’m bangin in my deck right now is some fresh new music from Novel.  He has a new free mixtape called Legato Blues Summer (I don’t know why it a free mixtape, I woulda paid top dollar for this) that is on topic and is some smooth, fresh and soulful sounds that makes you wanna dance, cry and rejoice.  He has some appearances on here that need no introduction:  Lauryn Hill, Jazza Phe, Smokey Robinson, Robin Thicke and  Chrisette Michele.  How much soul do you need?  This dude can sing, rap and produce.  He’s a mix of D’angelo, Smokey Robinson, Rakim, and Raphael Saadiq.  I’m telling you it’s on the one, jamming on the one, ja ja ja jamming on the one (who can tell me where that’s from, lol).  Here’s the link and I got some more, but I really got to listen to them before I give them love.

1st Month of Twenty-Ten

Hello all, how is it going for you?  For me, it’s going really, really fast.  I mean it seems like it was just October 2009 and 4 months later we in the 2nd month of 2010.  Is it me or is time really starting to move extra quick?  What is going on, it’s like we’re speeding up to something big.  I truly believe we are living in amazing times and are privileged to see amazing wonders, but at what cost. Who’s losing and winning, is there a game being played here.  Who are the teams?  How did they get there?  What am I doing, am I the only one who notices this?  It’s like watching the Super Bowl and not knowing whose playing.  I’m at a lost for words, I just don’t know anymore.  I’m going to pray on it.

Oh and BTW, Pink killed her Grammy performance.  There’s nothing else to say, she actually just made a new fan because I didn’t really care all that much for her, but that performance was excellent.
