Last week met up back with Wiz in LA. On the first night I got to check Wiz out in the studio. He played me some new cuts on the new album. Sounds pretty amazing so far! Big shout to Juicy J who stopped in the studio!

I captured a great moment of of Wiz and Amber at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, HI I got pictures of the whole week but I’m gonna post this little web jem up! Got to give it up for WIz for repping the good guys who are good to their girls….
Seriously this just popped into my head… and i went ahead and did it..
Here’s my Blend of Wiz Khaiifa’s “Roll Up” and Ryan Leslie’s “Fly Together.” Sprinkle a little Cypress Hill it’s a perfect “Joint”.
This Thursday some super hero friends of mine are showcasing a something great that has happened every summer since 2004 with an addition of something new. Both however showcase the power of pairing professionals with potential at risk kids to create. Outside the lines is a celebration of the power of people through art and fashion. 2 specific projects are the what bring this unique event together.
The MLK project has taken experienced artists and kids in different communities and has brought them together to paint murals in different neighborhoods across Pittsburgh and the U.S. Since 2004 over 200 murals have brightened the walls around the Pittsburgh area.
The Fashion for the Future Project also connects professionals in the Fashion industry with Young girls in the community to teach how fashion lines are created. This is the first year for this. They will be showcasing these fashions this Thursdays.
Very comforting to know that programs like this exist. I support the movement to use art for change. Below is the Press Release for the event.
Congrats to all involved!

“You can’t avoid the class that you think might be hard because you’re worried about getting the best grade if that’s a subject that you think you need to prepare you for your future. You’ve got to wonder. You’ve got to question. You’ve got to explore. And every once in a while, you need to color outside of the lines.” – Barack Obama

In 2010 I got to participate in the U.S. Red Bull Thre3style finals. I was among some of the best DJ’s in the country. Dj Vajra (who placed 3rd) was one of em! This year Vajra took the DMC world Championship. If you ain’t familiar DMC’s is turntablist competition. In fact it it’s THE DJ competition. He is also is in the Reb Bull Thre3style finals this year. I would like to write so much. But I’ll let the video speak for itself… Below is Vajra’s routine… And this is why I DJ….
Thank You Vajra for being an Inspiration and a friend!
My good friend Lee Terbosic is a Magician / Slight of Hand artist and is having a nice small intimate show at Shop 412 in the SS works tonight. He’s been in the magic game for a bit and is definitely one of the premier upcoming magicians. Tonight he introduces “52 Up Close.” Only 52 tickets were sold for the exclusive show tonight at SHOP 412!
Lee and friends with WIZ.
In celebration of this! A few weeks ago I was able to get Lee on tape showing Wiz some of his card tricks! Enjoy the VID!

The Finally Famous crew hit PGH last night! We have built such a special relationship with them because of the the Rolling Papers Tour. It was the biggest tour for Wiz and Sean. Because of that I always feel at home hanging with the Finally Famous Crew! It was great to see PGH show him so much love and in return Sean gave PGH a hell of a show! He also gave WIz and Mac lot’s of love during the show! It’s great to see how much Sean’s show has elevated! I think watching Wiz on stage every night on tour has influenced Sean! Sean definitely gave 1000% on stage!
If there is one thing about BIG SEAN is that is a very humbling an inspiring guy. I was able to see him interact with some fans during a meet and greet before the show. He took the time out to tell the fans that they should follow their heart. He then told them about the story of one of his teacher who told Sean that he was stupid for having dreams of becoming a rapper! On top of that the guys had opened arms for me and my friends who enjoyed the show! We got to chill and rap with Sean on his tour bus. SO happy for him and FF. Until Nxxt time!
Enjoy the pic! And I’ll have performance videos in the next post!
