Here is a gem for you Hip Hop junkies and historians. It shows the finding of the famous Wild Style tagging wall, which is now Gallery 151. This is a short documentary showing, how just by luck the wall was found. The wall was untouched and looked just like it did in the 80's. Shouts to KOOR! Absolutely Dope!

He has worked with too many names to drop and has countless solo albums, Deep Rooted albums, and production scores. He is also a giving man to this Hip Hop culture we all hold so dear to us.

Woo, Zee! Here we go with my first edition of "Cooking with DazeRoc". Since the NFL Playoffs are about to kick off I think it's fitting that I start with some classic tailgate fair. Yadada Bratwurst! Not just any bratwurst, but Farmer John - California Natural - Chicken Brats. Although I admit that I have never eaten or cooked bratwurst, I could not pass up the opportunity to grill something new. Let's start with the ingredients you will need.
1 - New Castle beer (12oz.)
2 - tablespoons of good olive oil
3 - tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 - pinch of black pepper
1 - teaspoon of salt
1 - fresh bay leaf
1/2 - teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
2 - cups thinly sliced white onion
2 - tablespoons olive oil
1/2 - teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 - tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 - pack of your favorite bratwurst
2 - lbs of pan criollo (Puerto Rican bread) or 6 premium roll buns
4 - slices of Swiss cheese
Get some Kingsford coals going in a coal chimney until coals are white. Pour coals immediately in your grill and spread even.
Put a 9x9 square foil pan in the middle of your grill. Pour beer, vinegar, salt, pepper, celery seed, mustard seeds, & onions. Cook with out top on grill for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the brats and simmer until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. If coals are too hot spray with a water bottle to bring down the temperature.
Take the bratwurst out of the beer bath and set aside. Woo, Hoo... Remove the liquid, & bay leaf from onions in pan and let cool. Add olive oil, crushed red pepper, and chopped fresh parsley and set aside to top bratwurst. Butter the pan criollo or buns and toast on the grill just before serving. Layer bread with cheese, a brat, & top with the onion relish. Top with French's honey mustard and enjoy!
Here we go with our first installment in the Graffiti Blog. After staring at the Zulu piece for months I was finally able to clear some time to do what I love to do. The Zulu piece was rocked by Zone1-WST for the UZN San Diego Chapter 3 Year Anniversary. I got busy on the background and characters and gave the bode characters an Egyptian twist, which I believe had never been done. This one goes out to all Z's around the world, Zone, Sen1, SOJ, Sake, Pesa, & all other Bode enthusiast. Enjoy!
Let's start this months "My Adidas!" segment with these suede Hi-tops Here we have a beautiful pair of Adidas Adicolor "Peace & Unity" jointz. Complete with Krylon and MC. Holla if you got a pair. Now I'm just waiting for my "Love & Having Fun" edition... Zee!
