It has been quite a while anything new got released from the stables of yours humbly. I have been on a brief creative hiatus, but it certainly doesn't mean I haven't been working on new material, it just means I've been working on making sure the new material is up to standard with what I expect of myself and what I intend to deliver to you, the faithful listeners.
Nonetheless, there are new performances coming up, preceding the release of the album, starting with March 31st at Gothenburg's Musikens Hus, headlined by Patoranking and Lani Mo. You will definitely be kept aware of the details of the album when they're available and of new happenings. Until then, Live free and love freely!

That new song we been talking about , Produced by Dakey and Featuring Dakey, Mehari and I- the one intended to remind us to appreciate and savor the simple moments in life, is going to be released tomorrow. We did not choose the feast of thanksgiving for any particular reason, nor do we condone what it subliminally stands for; (we will avoid getting historically correct here) but we do accept the fact that it is the start of the greatest human festive season, so we are definitely taking advantage of that! The release is set for 20.00 , November 22, Stockholm time. Lets all take some time out to celebrate life... the part about making babies - that's entirely up to you! See you tomorrow at the 20th Hour.
By The Way, want to help us choose an artwork for the song? See the possibilities below... and drop a comment or two...
Well guys , I will not bore you with much writing, I'll let your screen do the talking! ENJOY!
So here we go, the mixtape just got done - well , it got done a while ago, but my 'team' and I took some time out to shoot a few videos to our favorites, so we can hit you with a double 'music' , 'video' combo!! - you get it? Music Video--? well, bad sense of humor, I guess! So in effect I would like to say a hearty -Amen! to every one who aided on this project, my producers Quik Ivanov D and Dakey, FM, Gbeatz And Canvas Demaret, the talented UK cat who produced -The Free featuring Anna Norlin, which is a personal favorite! My video directors Alex Cleveland and The Amazing Suzan Arslan, A.S.A! whom we named after the amazing spiderman, yes - she's earned the right to be called a bro - and not because she let me sleep with her friends, --well, she wouldn't , not even if I asked nicely....maybe this was uncalled for! a thought to my team mates Mehari, who by a stroke of ill-luck and a hungry producer(dakey) couldn't appear on the mixtape...the word up crew...deli basis, graniit , zing and isyankar!
The videos are done and are coming at you ASAP! so stay posted like flags!
making faces with the Amazing Spider---sorry , Suzan Arslan! Heroine and activist, nah...she spretty evil!
video shoot for - THE FREE with Anna Norlin
video to -- THE MESAGE directed by Alex Cleveland
Team mates...Mehari in the Back and Dakey in the fore ground!
Acting like my initial confusion was not enough, William Takor graced my boards with yet another prolific creation for a mixtape cover. When it comes down to one, the choice is always simple because there is none, but throw in a multitude and people start to make the wrong ones! well enough talk here's the impressively powerful cover, in which the rider is neither a demon from the entrails of hell, nor a medieval European knight, which considering my lyrical perspective is quite appropriate, and I mean it, but a rather overwhelming Samurai, whose Horse is only more demonic than the murderous looking fellow himself! Witness the power!
OK...So the new mixtape sample covers just came in, and they are nothing short of amazing. each one fully captures the very emotions and perspectives i have tried to express and put forth in a whole different way. Check them out, ill take time to explain the depth my musical philosophy surrounding this new project later!
What it do old world?? i kno huh, classic hiphop slang that probably dont make sense to alot o' yall! well fair enough, as long as you catch the drIft and it dont hurt nobody, then it works. The new site is up and running and so is the blog to accompany it, to fill you in on what we go through on a daily basis tryna make good music for your ears! Bear in mind, this is bigger than hiphop, this is education! so be prepared to learn! and if you thought this was a non-intellectual getaway, well you are right!...and Wrong! Shout out to The TOTAL PRIDE Record label, the Dirty Rap Scholars, The Word Up Crew, Deli Basis, the homeboys and producers Quik D and Dakey, the beasts on the boards, Mehari, Zing and my partner Kaloriz and every other friend, reader and fan out there from San Francisco, California through London,UK all the way to Nagoya,Japan! and like Lupe says it ''shed no tear when we're not here and keep your faith as we chase The Cool''
Done and Out!!
Music is our common language and like numbers , it is spoken by all. We are nothing more than free spirits with a desire to make the World resonate to the frequencies of Mother earth's heartbeat and sway frantically in the glow of the moonlight.
