If you were wondering where I've been the last 2-3 weeks...it's been preparing for this show, dealing with the unforeseen passing of a West Coast legend and its effects on this show and then helping the team that made it all happen.

While running around during Rap Camp ( aka SXSW), I ran into Mistah F.A.B out side of a pizza joint. Fab has to be one of the most underrated dudes ever. Every time Hardknock TV and I run up on him he never disappoints us with his incredible freestyle abilities. Peep video below of him going in for 4 minutes!
*Side Note* While rapping, a cop on the side of us kept trying to get us to moves because we were blocking the pizza joint. So what does Fab do? Incorporates him into his rap. #Funtimes

So some of ya'll may have the album already but Snoop decided he'd give this to the people. It's my favorite off of the album so I'm honored to be the first to drop it to ya'll. As you can see I also have an exclusive photo from the video shoot...taken by me. Him and Wiz make hits...I can see this as a summer song. Enjoy...I know I've been away for a minute but it'll make sense soon. Sidenote, Snoop will be releasing new material everyday until the album drops.

Over the weekend I headed out to Long Beach to catch the 21st Annual Step Show. I was only there for a limited time but I caught some photos of the little homie Kendré performing and hanging out. I also ran into the Milwaukee homie DJ Willie Shakes while he was educating people on safe sex practices with his Terminator Brand "Wet" packs in hand. Ran into the homies Nerd (who was hosting) and Von Jackson taking some pics (he was also sponsoring). Oh and my cousin and some of my other good friends would be upset if I didn't post a pic of the Kappas doing their thing. Cashmere has some other pics up you can check out here. Heard a video recap is coming from them as well...
