June 30, 2009 by


I was at Venice Beach the other day and there were quite a few rappers out there promoting cds and mixtapes. I ran into two guys, Life Don from Watts, Ca and Najea from Compton, Ca. They played me some of their music and I really enjoyed it. Having received just a sample at the […]

Ive been sitting on this album for a minute now..Just felt the time was appropriate to share with everyone.

Sorry to do another post on him… But what you probably didn’t know is that Michael was an inventor. You guys remember Smooth Criminal?
