What’s up friends, family, and people I have yet to meet?

As I sit in the My House Promo Recording Studio listening to some
of my music being mixed down…I get a text message from a good buddy of mine
asking me “what are your plans for the fight?”. I could have sworn
the Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight had taken place last weekend. In fact I was so
sure it was I responded to the text with “you’re a week late and a dollar
short”. Little had I known he was referring to the UFC match: Rampage vs.
“Bones” Jones. With last weeks “controversial” boxing
match, I feel a few more rounds of fighting can’t hurt. I’ll reframe from
expressing my feeling regarding the Mayweather fight, as that seems to be old
news by now, but please remember “keep your hands up at all times”.

Growing up in NYC (like many other places) in the 80’s & 90’s
there were worst things going on in the streets & neighborhoods then what
was being played on your regular basic cable. In fact, you’d rarely hear a
curse word, rarely see any physical fighting, and if you were lucky fellas, you
may see a boob. Boxing was a big thing however. From Muhammad Ali, to Joe
Frazier, to George Forman to Mike Tyson, it always seemed like boxing has been relevant…But
is that still the case. Aside from waiting to see Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd
Mayweather, is there any other fight you’ve really wanted to see? Honestly? I
don’t know if boxing is what it used to be or if it will ever be again.

The gloves are gone, the ring is round, and the blood is
everywhere………..Are we being conditioned to except more physical violence?
And that’s where the UFC comes in to play. What used to be banned from
television is now regularly aired on basic network TV. WOW, I love it. No
seriously, I do enjoy the UFC and have watched and will continue to watch many
fights. I see more and more training facilities opening up nationwide and more
and more kids taking interest. But is that hurting our youth? Are we returning
back to the times of the Gladiator? I would love to hear your opinions.

Has the UFC replaced boxing?

Well its back to recording music for me, in the meantime I would love to hear what you think

What’s good fans, friends, and people I have yet to meet.

As I sit in the studio reading over all my social networking websites
(Facebook, Twitter, My YouTube channel, etc.) lately I’ve seen nothing but
complaints about “HATERS”. Now it’s very easy to say “we all
have haters”, I guess that would have to be true to some extent, but hold
on a second…I realized that half my friends are artist of some sort who put
their work out there to the public to be seen/”judged”. Now the other
half are friends, family, people I’ve met through my travels and just some good
every day hard working people. But the complaints I am seeing are one in the
same: “HATERS”. Now with that in mind….Have you ever read a Facebook
post and for whatever reason assumed the person was talk sh*t about you?!?!
I’ll be the first to say, “I have”. Have you ever caught yourself
openly hating on someone for no reason? Think about it for a second…and may
it be anyone…your friend at school, your neighbor (for having a bigger
house), or even LeBron James for instance for going to the Miami Heat. Once again,
I have to say “I have”.

Dealing with people in general is not an easy thing, nor something
taught by our teachers and rarely taught by our parents. Needless to say, we
are all guilty of not being that “perfect” person we see ourselves
as…But when does the hate stop and the “asshole” begin? That
question led me to run a standard “Google” search on “Define:
Haters”. I clicked the first link and it took me directly to the urban
dictionary which had a bunch of different definitions. Go figure right….I
guess love has a bunch a definitions why wouldn’t “Hate”. I would
love to hear what your thoughts on a hater are….

But with that in mind where are all the lovers? Like Jay-Z song
says in the chorus “aint no love in the heart of the city”….? Where has
it gone? Or is it still alive….? I see it like this, as people we are all in
a relationship with one another. A relationship which “deserves” to be
built off unconditional love. We all affect each other. We have been raised to
believe that the world will always need balance. Good & Evil, The Ying
& Yang, but must we know hate to feel love?
