IZZY-WST @ Battle Grondz

Here are flicks of Izzy-WST rocking at the annual event "Battle Groundz".  I started an outline but the spacing just didn't work out so I just chilled, got free, and talked to everyone.  I did see cats painting outlines with mini rollers, masking with their hands, and one cat even brought an entire box full of stencils.  Yes I said a box filled.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but when did that ish become accepted in Aerosol Art?  Don't get mad, practice your trait and put in your time.  If your dedicated, it will come. In the mean time here are flicks of someone who took the time to learn and do just to the art form.  Enjoy!

Arest 150 - Wild Style Technicians

(Arest 150 - wall)
Just wanted to be the first to congratulate Arest 150 for becoming the newest member of the WILD STYLE TECHNICIANS Crew. It's been a long time coming and we were watching each step of the way.  In the 20 year history of the crew no one from San Diego has been added since the founding members started the crew.  With Sake being the only exception, Arest marks first person from SD to get in. This is true evidence of what happens when... you teach, influence and give back. This is the example of what WST stands for and what we have done with it for the past 20 years. This is someone who got it. He took the teachings (Symmetry, Sarifs, Balance, Composition, Weight, Bars, Arrows, Bits, Doo dads, Funk, ect. and made his own style with it. We don't teach style, we teach principles, history and blueprints. The style is up to the individual to acquire and come up with. I can't say how proud I am of this individual watching nearly his entire Graff ride and seeing him advance. To a great friend - Welcome to the family. You will be a great addition.

 Hip Hop Lives!

I got your Zulu ID right here...

Here is what I got back in the day for paying my one time only fee.  With my ID card, I also got 2 stickers from headquarters.  The stickers are still in the wrapper they came in.  Also in the goody bag, was a Zulu Gremlin/Rock Steady T-Shirt design by HEX.  The  shirt was due to the fact that I was Rock Steady Crew San Diego Chapter president at the time.    I remember how hype I was to receive these and to go on and do the work Afrika Bambaataa has inspired all of us to do.  A big salute to all my NorthStar Z's.  "No Him Bow"  Peace and Blessings to all Amazulus doing good, honest and genuine work.  Z's up!

Cooking with DazeRoc - Dinner for two.

After getting tons of request to bring back an edition of “Cooking with DazeRoc” I finally wrote down what I cooked last night for my daughter and myself.  Here we got Grilled chicken breast strips, grilled zucchinis, grilled corn on the cob, and yellow rice with corn criollo style.  Here is a list of the ingredients and a how to for each item. Hope you like the recipe.  My 3 year old daughter said to me: ”The rice is good, the corn is good, the zucchinis are good, & the pollo is good.  Papi this is the best day ever.” God bless her and her heart. Lol.  So if your asking if this meal is approved, there you go right there.  She ate everything on her plate.  Till the next episode of cooking with DazeRoc, be good to each other and "Buen Provecho…"
BBQ/Grilled Chicken, Grilled Zuchinnis, Grilled Corn on the Cob, & Yellow Rice Criollo.

Rice  - Ingredients:

 1-Cup of rice.
1 Small(8.5oz.) can of corn.
1-Packet of “Sazon” Goya or any other brand.
2-Cups of water.
2-Tbls. of extra light olive oil.
4-“Zee's” of Salt. (Between 1 to 2 teaspoons of salt, depending on your taste.)
2-“Zee's” of black pepper.
1-“Zee” of garlic granules or 1 large garlic clove.

How to:

 Rinse rice.  In a small to medium size rice sauce pan heat up oil in medium-high heat.  Stir in rice and stir, coating the rice with the oil. (App. 1- 1 ½ minutes.)  Turn heat to high and add water.  Continue to stir.  Add salt, black pepper, garlic granules, drained can of corn, & packet of “Sazon”.  While stirring, bring to a boil and allow top water to evaporate till it’s even with rice.  Lower temperature to Low-Med. heat, cover and cook for 18 minutes.  Do not take top off while cooking.  Stir before serving.
Grilled Zucchinis - Ingredients:

 2-small zuchinis.
Extra light virgin oil.
Black pepper.
Garlic granules. 
How to: 
Rinse and clean zucchinis.  Cut long-ways and lighly coat both sides with extra light virgin oil.  Season to taste with the salt, black pepper, & garlic granules.  Grill zuchinis over hot coals for approximate 4 minutes per side.

Grilled Corn on the cob. - Ingredients:

2-Corn on the cob with the husk stillintact.
Black pepper.

Prior to cooking corn put into a juice pitcher upright and fill with water.  Let them soak the water up for at lest 1 hr.  This will help the corn not burn, stay moist and kind of steam the corn while cooking.  Place corn in your grill over hot coals and cook for at least 1 hr. turning over once during cooking.  Pull back husk being careful not to be burned by the steam and season to taste with butter, salt, & black pepper.
Chicken - Ingredients:

4-large chicken strips.
Adobo Criollo seasoning.
Black pepper.
Garlic granules.
Ground oregano.

How to:

Lightly coat both sides of chicken with the Adobo seasoning.  Do not over do it.  This stuff is very concentrated and high in sodium.  Optional – add a “zee” of black pepper, garlic granules, & ground oregano per side.  Place chicken on grill using the indirect method of cooking.  For those of you that do not grill regularly, that means putting and even amount of coals on opposing sides and placing the chicken over the middle of the grill that would not have hot coals over it.  To cook with the indirect method you will need to keep the top on and not peek.  Put the cover on your grill and cook for 45 minutes.  I like my chicken well done.  If your not sure if your chicken is done you can always check using a meat thermometer.  Internal temperature needs to be at least 165 degrees.
