I really wanted the first track to be about what i'm about - where i'm from, who i am, and i wanted to clearly state what i'm not trying to be. Life is all about perception. In this perception you can create anything, be anything, do anything that you want. My perception of myself and the stuff that flies around in my head is that of a crazy 12 year old on hallucogenics - but that's what i truly believe. I mean you might think I am just who I am at the surface. And that's all good. Just know that my craft is about my perception.
So this beat is just straight up from God's Bathroom Floor, it's so beautiful i didn't want to do anything to compromise it.
Manifesto - this is what we wanna see happen.....

Recent events just really make me feel this DJ Honda/Mos Def song, like really feel it. I know I've posteed it a lot before, But i recently have been jamming to the instrumental and throwing verses on top of that. All the covers of it have really got me going.
I think a woman's version needs to be done. Yknow how i mean? But I would make it about how, if you can just up and leave- how are you going to expect me to stand still. I know you don't even expect that. So why make someone in your life a priority when to them, you're just an option.
Let the rhythm hit em.
I know you're a travellin man -
Movin through places, space and time
Gotta lot things you got to do
But god knows I aint gonna wait for you - baby boo.

I Love Rza. Such a musical genius. This is just a kinda cheesy track i love by him. If i could trade places with anyone for a day - it would be the Rza. He introduces theory and meaning to hip-hop. I love that.
He worked with The Black Keys as well on one of my favourite albums of all time Blakroc. The webisodes are fucking awesome.
We was like Mork and Mindy
Yah we was like Mork and Mindy
Yah nigga i told her i was from space and this girl belie' me
I told her I was a clone and there was probably three of me
We all at the movies
She cudda swore she saw me.

Ghostface Killah - Whip You With A Strap
This song progressively kept getting awesome.
1. The beat pulled at my heartstrings
2. Dilla produced it
3. The first line ghostface said "snotty nose", probably my favourite lines used in hiphop (DOOM, Earl, etc.)
You know you've succeeded as a producer when you can evoke emotion just with your beats. I had to sit back for two seconds and actually let it sink in. So amazing.
Ghostface is in Vancouver on Wednesday and i couldn't be more fucking pumped.
I love this take on Madvillan's "All Caps", Earl redid this and called it "Deerskin". He has the zaniest flow! He wrote this when he was FOURTEEN. Jesus.
Get more ass than potty holes - had these naughty flows ever since I was a snotty nose..
Here's the instrumental - it's also so good.
