dP’s Oscar Michaeux Flow…

Sunday, June 30th, 2013


I put together a few clips while listening to the Yeezus album. Shit had me hype and inspired. This is what I want to do. I mean, not just on this lo-fi level, but yeah, I wanna make movies.

The first clip uses scenes from Godzilla versus Gamera to complement the song ‘Hold My Liquor’ which features Chief Keef

The next clip was culled from the movie T’Shaka Zulu. The obvious sonic bed was ‘Black Skinheads’.

The final clip I produced was taken from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. KanYe becomes Darth Yeezius and destroys the Jedi temple and anyone who gets in his way on sight. ON SIGHTTTTT!

You Gotta Eat This…

Sunday, June 30th, 2013


The homey Premium Pete has partnered up with Bun B the Trill OG and founded a new website called ‘You Gotta Eat This‘. Premium is the Instagram champ of food pictures. He decided to take that to the ‘nother level and make a site where people could post their favorite recipes and meal preparations.

I copped two three pound lobsters from the Fairway market in Red Hook and banged out one of my favorite meals of all time. Lobster! Bitches.


Since the Complex checks are picking up my Polo costs I figured I could afford to splurge for $10 a pound on some of Maine’s finest.

Took out the biggest pot in the house…




Old Bay is the minimum mandatory for the boil and the Stella is to add that

A dab of virgin olive oil in the skillet for I can saute me some…



Vegetables. Bitches.

How good do these look?



Like I said before… Vegetables. BITCHES!

I split open the tail and put it back in the oven with a quarter stick of butter in the crease.



And I kept it seafood for desert with the Swedish Fish.

Timeless Truth: What A Life…

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013


I always think about the first time I met Timeless Truth in the NYC streets. We was all catching the subway at the 2/3 14th St station and these dudes called me “Diamond Dallas Paige”. Classic. LOL, nah, but they fuxed with me and I fuxed with them.

They were ‘LO dipped with a grip of I.T.’s on like I hadn’t seen since 1992. Mind you this was 2007 tho’ and their pieces were 15 years old. Damned if these dudes weren’t 15yrs old. How could these young niggas have so much OG flavor? I felt like they had come from a time machine. I especially loved the Hi-Tech pieces.

What I learned then about Timeless is that they are old souls and students of the art of being fresh in NYC. Shouts to the whole planet Earth, but NYC is one of the hubs of the aspirational lifestyle. Polo defines that lifestyle in their clothing because of the people in NYC who rock it while they earn their stripes. However they earn their stripes. And whatever you do to defend those stripes. People that rock Polo manifest their dreams.

Timeless Truth let me play a part in their album release with my official fanboy of Hi-Tech. The video was actually a message to the brothers about where we come from in the galaxy of Queens. I used Queens landmarks, but these brothers need no reminding to remain centered. They have their Hip-Hop GPS locked in. Listen to the melody of RTNC respecting the power of the 88 keys.

The video below is for the track which I think represents Timeless Truth’s aspirational values in rap form. Family first, love and loyalty always. It won’t be an easy road, but what a life…
