Purple Dreaming ---> "Bout to Blow Up"

Yesterday I spent all day working on something from school to hustlen, by the time i whiped in the whip home around 11 i was tired as fuck. I planned on getting up putting ice on my sprained ankle and charging my phone but i never made it out the bed. Instead i spent the whole night and part of the early am PURPLE DREAMING. I had this dream and if i love you were in it either a lil bit or a lot. The whole concept was all my hard work paid off and life was full of all the artisticness that i had manifested and i was traveling the world doing what i love-singing-painting-and overall making-people smile.

I think my dream was right, thus said i got some work to do to make that happen. check back real soon i got lots and lots and lots of art to sho you!!! love you -Wren

Jennifer Johns is one of my favorite singers from Oakland. Her live shows are ridiculous. Her spirit is beautiful. And as a fellow artivist tryna make change thru creating I love her.

Community Rejuvenation Project

Driveing around town you may have noticed murals throughout oakland with tribal design fly colors and fresh graf and images, most likely its the COMMUNITY REJUVANATION PROJECT taken over the city one wall at a time to paint Peace in the Streets.



My homie Desi WOME runs an amazing project called COMMUNITY REJUVENTAION PROJECT, an amazing program. Taking walls that are abandoned and ugly and making beautiful. Cleaning up the community picking up trash, and landscaping planting gardens. With the mentality that its great to have nice sights through out the community, buts its bigger than that. There is positive meanings behind the murals celebrating culture and encorperating the history of the area into the imagry. In addition its bringing in youth to learn how to create murals and grow as artists. A element to the project is throwing block parties, a Celebration when the mural is done. Please check out the blog and join the cause on facebook, this is just the beginning a whole restoration project will unfold from this.

ROCKY RIVERA!


it is finally here!!!!!! By any name this LADY SPITTA is in a league of her own. Her evolution as an artist is inspiring. From work as a journalist for Rolling Stones broadcast on MTV for the world to see her skills, whether spitt'n to a crowd or interviewing those that do, she keeps it real and puts her heart into it. It is and honor to call her a friend, and I definitely want to collaborate with her in the future (on any capacity -art/music...) Before you read this go head and get yo copy at cdbaby.com and have a listen:

            1. its no secret that EYEASAGE aka ROCKY RIVERA is one of my favorite emcees and I bumped her mixtape MARRIED TO THE HUSTLE steadily on repeat. What i love about her as an artist is that she reps hard for ladies but always stays real to herself and what she is about.
              She goes hard for the bay but anyone can relate to her songs. The bay needs more artists like her: who have universal appeal with out toning down their flavor (cuz you know we got a lil extra in the Bay)A journalist, activist, mother and emcee and she does it all with class and style and she makes it look easy!
              ROCKY RIVERA GANSTA OF LOVE and she got "HEART" "new that it was coming when the panthers started forming so i booked the first flight to the states in the morning to show them my solidarity...Revolution in my Heart" still speaking politically and schooling us on tracks like "THE RUNDOWN" "had a massacre history crossed out a generation gone and the story that we missed out i live a life trying make up for the lost time looking for reasons to be proud of my own kind" She breaks it down for yall matters that may seem "complex" with lyrics like "Queen Latifah telling brothers bout a certain word they like to use when they feeling insecure so they pull out all the bitches and the sluts and the whores but look i heard it all you can try me still got a purpose even if you don't like me still gonna rhyme even if you don't buy me still for the struggle when they try to dollar sign me"<-------Whaaaaat this is why she Gooesits lyrics like this and exquisite choices on her part in production every song is a slapper







          Tonights its going down The Release party is gonna be amazing with the Homies Dun Dun and Isis G rawking aswell come thru and CELEBRATE the RELEASE OF ROCKY RIVERA in her hometown the CITY of SAN FRANCISCO and MILK:
