Been A Long Time…Shouldna, You Know, Etc. Etc.

The Frontline :: Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Freestyle

First of all, big shout out to my peeps who brought me through this past weekend for a likkle radio and print interview trip: The Uhuru Maggot, Trinity, and Billy Jam. Shouts also to T-Kash, Nerissa Pacio and Eric Arnold, plus a spontaneous after-midnight chat with my long-lost peoples, the gifted producer Rob Fanatik and shouts to his crew Mikial, Jihad, and the brother Hasan! To all of you…It was an honor and a pleasure.

In the middle of Billy’s show, he asks me, “So what do you think of The Frontline?” And I go, “Duh. I’ve never heard ’em.”

But a couple hours later I’m talking to my man Eric who tells me they’re about to go national, so I head up to Rasputin’s and pick up The Bootleg 2.1 and Who R You and I realize, yo, I hear this every day outside my door and down at the park! It’s true–I know all their beats and hooks already ’cause this is the stuff that’s on the bassbins all around the area.

There’s nothing like a promotional book tour to get a dude out of the house and up on his around-the-way heroes.

Anyway, thanks to all yall faithful who come back everyday waiting on me for something new to say. I ain’t forgot aboutcha. Bear with me as this blog transforms into something else, a road-dawg diary, over the next month plus change.

New hardware in the works, wireless software, and actual bandwith means I’ma be servin’ up a lot more this year, if not as often. Thanks for listening.

In the meantime, peep some Richmond game–or more precisely, as the folks who ain’t locked in their rooms writing books around here call it, some of that New Bay shit–from a group yall will be hearing lots about very soon.

And yeah, I’ll get to that Sticker Shock post I promised last week real soon…

Finally, this one from Lizz Mendez Berry:

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A:None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day.  Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media.  That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect.  Why do you hate freedom?

    Frontline is definitely killing it. EA-Ski got his custom boost mobile (i think) phone, can a major label connect for Infrared be far behind? Locksmith of frontline already has been on MTV…

    Frontline is nice with theirs, no doubt. Thanks for the freestyle, Jeff. I just got the book today. Can’t wait to dig into this weekend.
