陰陽 (Yin & Yang)

Last night I got to link with Mez & Final Outlaw.. we headed to Williamsburg to watch a show for Soundwave at a loft party in brooklyn.. soundwave is like a hulked out version of ninja sonik.. really sick group





anyways.. like 2:46am me and Final Outlaw leave to go home..we were gonna take the train but opted to get in cabs.. he was on the opposite side of the street to catch his.. all i knew is there were a few cats out late but this corner i was on felt really eerie... this spanish guy was standing near me...and was clearly drunk but clearly staring at me... i wasn't even trying to make eye contact but i can see from my peripheral watz going on..

out of the shadows is this like mini version of a tazmanian devil.. definitely latino but not really sure where from.. dude is walking quik and in the street.. it looks like he was coming to punch me or something but he actually punched the other dude in the face.. when he was walking.. i could see from the corner of my eye some other taller cat walking parallel to him and he was there to help jump that 1 spanish dude...

so the lil tazmanian kat thru this punch i swear i though he was playing..cuz it was chotto slow but totally took dudes head OFF.. i was like i can't believe he didn't see that shit coming! but dude was drunk.. i could see the way he feel.. it was fucked up.. and i was waiting for gunshots.. i started to back away and the tazmanian dude came at me like back up yo, back up yo.. i was like fuck!!! i couldn't tell if they had guns..i had nooo idea what that was about but as i back up cuz i am not trying to get shot.. i could hear this dude getting a beating.. broken glass..i'm sure on his face.. i'm sure he got stomped.. i was stuck like yooo..

if dude wasn't there were this cats out there to rob whoever was on that street trying to catch a cab.. was i about to catch a bad one.. shit.. i wasn't happy about this shit.. cuz i keep thinking about how many guns are in the street.. this is not the 80s or early 90s where dudes scrapped

shit is sooo different now.. suki janai

on a good note..since being home i've been grinding and getting this music isht together.. i linked with Gene of Wealthy Ho$tage to build about Likwuid's album release party



shortly after that..my dude d-pi ventured up to NYC to visit for a few business days...



recently.. mio fujiisan needed help getting a new mic so she ended up getting this one



i helped her set it up


LMAO!!!! Did you notice Mio is at Pizza Hut...or is it Taco Bell.. wait..it's the combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell!!!

wait...WHAT???? Nani Kore!??? yes yes.. the "combination pizza hut and taco bell..not just a pizza hut or a taco bell.. but a combination pizza hut and taco bell LMAO





soooo....the ultra violence last night fucked me up a lil bit.. i don't know mentally where I am.. human existance is tiring... why should my friend be challenged if i decide to defend myself..and if i defend myself..there's 50% chance that someone is packing a gun..so no matter how sick the skills are.. if i dont put niggas in the hospital.. i am in jeopardy of being shot or worse... life here is awesome but sickening too.. a perfect balance...

Japan may not be perfect but it is peaceful..
i like peaceful environments.. i will probably move soon.. permanently lol

Another example of the Impossible

Rest in Power Guru!



I woke up today and found out that Guru of Gangstarr died... I was pumping his music frequently at my apato in Sangenjaya, Tokyo... I remember waking up in Tokyo to hear that he was in a coma and had cardiac arrest! Such a sad time because one of my friends from long island was also going through it!



Guru was recovering though and the fans were happy! But once again today... i woke up and bong! he was gone!



That really hurts...like I always listen to Guru for inspiration... his vocals are always chillin and the way he flows exemplifies lots of power without getting too hype on the mic.. he's always like...chillin when he's rappin!



I WISH i could spit like that! long story short.. this is such a huge loss for hip hop and I am sad because I am not sure if the people that needed to tell him that they love him got to tell him before he passed.. i am not sure if everyone got to really talk to him...

God thank you for the gift of Gangstarr

Tadaima...

Home...


photo by Gon (for more info email me)

I am back home and I can remember once my plane landed in Newark the feeling I had. The euphoria stopped. It was so warm in Jersey, 80+ degrees. Things were okay but the demeanor of the people was different... chotto samoi yo.

Maybe people are like "why the fuck his he smiling??? what the fuck is sooo awesome about being alive...?"

I think here in the states people are alive, struggling to hold on and survive not to mention there are so many levels of unhappiness here...socially, economically and more.. and it's effecting, I feel, more of the people and their attitudes here than in Japan.

People fight because you look at them wrong, fight because you don't move fast enough, fight because they hate their jobs and they let you know about it depending on the job...

I am highly inspired still, regards of the atmosphere here. I met someone in Tokyo this past trip that just matches my energy completely. Whenever I wanted to party, she would come, whenever I needed a beat to write to, she made it... she matched all of my energy completely and I prayed to God for all the success... meet DJ TOMOKO


(me, DJ TOMOKO, & Mai chan)

friends like this..that fully support your vision and go all out for you make life amazing. I have this in NYC with my boy Sim-E



however I am chotto jaded by my overall incredible experience in Tokyo... maybe Japan is not the best.. BUT for me..it really was... almost everything I thought of or wanted to achieve was actualized


in June 2009, I did a transformational course to live my life more powerfully, and more authentic with the people and I know and within myself. I wrote out on paper I wanted to:

emcee full time
produce music full time
model
travel the world
and be a great entrepreneur

The last 3 months in Tokyo...I became an official model... for Applebum



I emceed countless parties by way of DJ SARASA (thank u sista!)



I started making beats for some of Tokyo's top emcees.. i'm just waiting on some feedback....i am striving to sell beats to many of the emcees there

I also started something on the entrepreneur tip that i can mention later on..
long story short.. Tokyo showed a lot of love yo... there was so much support and belief in me that my music started to change! I am tired of rapping where I'm talking about struggle.. the situation with abundance was sooo much in Tokyo that I started emceeing about all the good things that kept me afloat and it was fun.. my music wasn't sooo dark..

anyways.. it's difficult to articulate how amazing DJ SARASA, Applebum, Gon the photographer and DJ TOMOKO were in regards to setting the tone for my trip... I love them all yo.. they really held me down...

I hope to get all the Tokyo thoughts out in this blog because the trip was that amazing! from little kids seeing the MekaGoJi rings i wore and waving to me hello.. to speaking more japanese and navigating the subway asking questions.. it was amazing!
