Yesterday was such an outpouring of inspiration and connection for me as we drove along part of the beautiful coast of California. Im sooo blessed to be here at this time in my life, where i can really feel it and take it all in. Today, we head back into Los Angeles to take in what has been to me one of the greatest influences in my musical life as a hip hopper. I was so impacted and changed and shaped in the early to mid 90’s by a conscious underground hip hop movement that came out of LA, that to this day I still carry it’s residue! Peace and love to #projectblowed and the #goodlife, to the #freestylefellowship, and #aceyalone and all the beautiful souls involved in this movement! Tonight I get to see two of my fav emcees @thegrouch and @therealeligh perform plus the amazing group @wearedelasoul at the @rhymefestla festival and this weekend I will get to drive through #leimertpark to breathe in what has given to me so much over the course of 20 plus years… salute to all the true hip hop🙏🏽 and to the #bboykingdom! #blessedman

@2mexomd “I Am Still” is an all-time timer for me. The acoustic guitar is an “Ohhhh shit!” moment. This man’s voice was there as I came of age along with Rage Against The Machine and Fidel Rodriguez/Seditious Beats Radio. 2Mex was EVERYWHERE I’d go. Working. I’d see him and Busdriver out front of venues making a living sharing their art. #myfanbasewilldestroyyou #HardestWorkingInHipHop #BBoysInOccupiedMexico #ProjectBlowed #CircleOfDivineForces
