Really felling these True Hip Hop Stories. Big salute to D Nice for putting these together and sharing the stories with the world. Here we got Brand Nubian's - Sadat X. He talks about how the song "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down" came about after the split with Grand Pubba. He also touches on his name change in 89 and going to Rikers Island on weapon charges. My favorite line of the interview came when he was talking about grumpy old school artist thinking they are current because they were around back in the days. To that he said: "If you want to blame somebody. Blame your mother & your father for having you 15 to 20 years too soon."
Ok boys and girls it's that time of the week we like to call - The Rider Clip of the Week. Although I had a few other rider clips I wanted to share, I didn't think they were as dope, so I held out from posting the Rider Clip of the Week just for the sake of posting. My apologies to all the true riders out there. Here's is an amazing video of a true rider. Can't believe he's doing this on a street bike! Truly amazing.
The call came and it was time to lift my self imposed hiatus from the Blok. With that said I packed up the paint, tips, buff, grabbed the outline and headed out the door. The thought of finally getting it in with Arest on a one-two WST punch, had me hyped. Come to find out it was going to turn into a "Three the Hardway" producto! My man Kool Spherecrashed the party and made it that much more legit. Sphere and I grabbed the ends and left the center spot for Arest. After battling to get my outline up I was finally ready for the fill. I didn't have anything in mind other that I wanted to experiment with the fill. Sphere had to knock out his piece and bounce back to LA. He did it in veteran style and got it done in just a few hrs. His piece still had the original Pesto Bismol buff from the new walls being installed for the big event. I actually buffed around his piece and left room for the force field. Arest and I handled our biz and finished at the end of the day. I had and idea of what I wanted to do for the background so I came back the next few days as time permitted to get it in and tie everything in. I put highlights behind everyone's pieces and started the rest of the background. Arest came back and put up the WST letters and finished Sphere's piece by putting up the force field. The production started to really come together. I finally finished the background, hit my force field and called it quits. Hope you guys like it. #WSTeam
