Today I enter a trax into the Native Instruments and Meta Pop Street Swarm Remix Contest. I actually already had the trax set aside for my new album MINOR KEYZ. It’s called “they Stole the Eye’s Of Egypt”. Reason being. I had just purchased the new expansion Street Swarn last week. And so you have to use samples from the expansion of which they provided free sounds from it. So if you already own it, you have a leg up on everyone. I wanna say it’s one of Native Instruments best expansion for hiphop.

I like to think that everything happens for a reason.
So back on the 7th of June, of all days. Lol I’m sitting parked in my truck on the south side of Chicago. Waiting on my son while he’s at track practice. I doze off only to be awakened by a big bang! As I open my eye’s I’m instantly seeing the truck move. I barely see debris in the air, but I feel it. As I quickly come to my senses. I realize that I’ve been hit by another car. I stay put for a second cause I’m thinking to my self, “should I get out”.
My son run’s to me inside the truck to see if I’m alright. He tells me the door is tore up and it won’t open. I’m like, “are you kidding me”. The whole time I’m wondering how bad it is. I literally had to climb over the middle arm rest to get out of the truck. As I get out everyone is running over to check on me. No one knew I was inside the truck. I’m walking around trying to make sure I was ok. As I walked around to the other side of the truck, I see the damage. Wow! It’s worst than I thought. I hear nearby witnesses saying the guy that hit me and another SUV parked directly behind me. Jumped out of the car and ran! But wait . . . he came back to the scene to retrieve something out of the car. Once he got it, he then ran away again. Lol
This is when someone manage to take a picture of him. You see how the devil will do ya.
I’m so blessed to walk away from this accident in good health. It could’ve been worst than this. God is good all the time I tell you. Cause I realized, I was reclined in my seat inside the truck sleep when it happened. So where most of the damage was done, that’s where my head was placed when I was laying back in the seat. It’s crazy out here in these streets. I was just minding my business, parked waiting on my son. And then, here’s the icing on the cake. The car was stolen! Wait, what? Yeah, the damn car was stolen. But they did catch the guy.
I say everything happens for a reason. Since the accident, I’ve been catching up in the studio. Making new MADDTRAXX for the site and what not. of which I’ve been way behind on. Hoping on getting the truck by July 5th. It’s been a long time coming.
Everyone comes to the fork in the road sometime. When you have to make that important decision that will effect your life. This Chicago native, singer/song writer wrote a song about that very thing. The first lead single from her self titled album Sophie S, “Crossroads” produced by S7NLEE. The album features production from Chicago producer, Stasia Beats . Someone who knows how to cook up heat on production. If your looking for that flavor check out her website. (click on her name) The album due out late July, early August.
Sophie S holds all the jewels. Beauty, vocals and the gift to weave words together to create songs. It was her song writing that lead on the introduction from S7NLEE.
“It’s a rare find these day’s to run into a good song writer”
. The single is streaming now via: iTunes, Amazon Music, Sound Cloud and Google Music
. Spread the word and support for this up coming artist out of the Go-ILL.
Just finished working on the artwork for my upcoming new release, MINOR KEYZ. My second official Gothic Soul Entertainment release. I must say it’s coming together slowly but surely. I’ve enlisted some of Chicago best rappers and singers once again. You can count on features from Race Bannon, Vell the General, K-Luv the Poet and Mac Millie to name a few. In fact Mac Millie has the first single from the project. Titled “Ice Cream Man”, but yet has nothing to do with the ice cream man, Lol.
Preparing to start on another trax for the project, with Booda Blaou in mind. Been wanting to collab with this brutha, for a long time. I’m thinking something grimmy. HipHop of course. Hmmm, let’s see what I come up with.
