One door closes as another one opens…..

Things change. Things can get better or they can get worse. In the last year my life has improved in a variety of ways. I’m engaged, a home owner and a dad to a 3 year old lab collie cross called Tess. Things are kinda perfect. I’m content with my lot in life. I’m also proud of how things have progressed with my website/blog. The traffic has been great as has the feedback.

Overall I feel that I’ve achieved my goals. Doing something that I love has given me such wonderful rewards. The rewards have been the friendships all over the world I’ve made from this. Connecting with likeminded souls is enriching. I’ve tried to make sure the true essence of the culture was at the forefront of the work I’ve done from the videos posted, articles written and interviews conducted. Thank you to all those who’ve taken part. It’s meant the world to me. Those connections I’ve made have opened up doors for me to expand my horizons and challenge myself in different ways. So with a little sadness but with a sense of excitement for the year ahead I’m archiving/closing the site/blog for pastures new. It’s been on my mind for a few months now. I’ve known it was on the cards but wasn’t sure it was the right move but now I do. 

From January you’ll be able to find me at and thanks to my friend Baird. He’s been a big supporter of my work and an advocate for the direction I’m taking. I hope you can come with me on this next chapter in my evolution. One door closes as another one opens.

Wow. My brother J has some much talent it’s crazy. This is sublime and shows another layer to his production work. Incredibly proud of him. Peep the info about the track below:

“I’m honored to announce that I’m now the American Brand Ambassador for Geedup Co., a very dope clothing company based in Sydney, Australia. In celebration of this announcement, we decided to release a new instrumental track of mine, named: Geedup! I’m not the first American hiphop artist to rock their gear; Freddie Gibbs, Joey Bada$$, Statik Selektah, and CJ Fly have as well, just to a name a few”.

Check out their incredible gear here:

Fun fact: peep the dope drop Method Man did on this track! is going on hiatus…..

I wanted to let you know that the site is going on a extended holiday. Me and my girl May are in the process of moving into our first home. It’s a very exciting time for us both. A positive step forward in our life together. We’ve also adopted a lovely dog called Tess so as you can imagine its all go. So as you can imagine a little time away from the site is needed until we are settled. 

I’ll be back at the start of September. I’ll be in my acknowledgektl cave, ready to rock and bring you the latest dope shit & the interviews you dig. Thank you for the continued support as always. 

Take it easy
