everybody gotta have a least one
secret hiding place
where i go to meditate, sing, and paint
i want this place to stay secret
(or at least stay known to only the folks that know it)
but i wanted to show a few flix frm my last trip
Something got lost in translation when we built cement all over mother nature, now we can only get a glimpse of a gem when we pump gas into a four wheeled robot and "go camping" i love this life, this time, this mind, this sprit, but sometimes a pieces of me wishes i was born in a land or a time where i could wake up to trees rooted in the ground surrounding me, or the ocean, or natural sound of the creek water. My secret hiding place has a lil pinch of nature and (HELLA) graffiti ----> so im set for life with inspiration....this place is some kind of amazing...
Por Favor - Merci Bou Coup ----> Shhhhh if you know where it is keep it a secret. Evertime i go back i find for cigaret butts and broken bottles and trash...The older i get the more it pains me to see folks littering the earth - for it either to kills an animal or just gross to look at, from working with the organization Community Rejuvenation Project - I have more pride in cleaning up my community and painting because I see how it makes others take pride in their community and overall improve the energy and scenary of the space.

SWAG'R JAK'N (BAY GRL RMX)
Rocky Rivera and Talia Taylor team up on this one to rep for bay girls coming with and overload of original flows and style...so much that people tend to jack a lil. I heard the track over at the Attik house when Talia was laying down her verse. I'm honored to call both of these talented Lady Spittas friends. They both hold there own in the arena, dismantling stages for years, rawking fresh gear, overall repping for the whole bay area from the Town to the ity bity city.
