So far so good its 4:30p.m and the rain has been light. Living in New York my entire life i am surprised by the amount of fear and caution being displayed the news and government organizations. New York has never in my lifetime succumbed to anything, blizzard, rain, terrorist, blackouts, but damn right now (MTA shut down the trains, no flights leaving , no Amtrak) this seems to be thought of as a once in a lifetime storm. Thing is, i dont believe them maybe i have been lulled into a false sense of "New Yorker" but i dont think this will be Katrina.
In other foolish news, i am supposed to dj a party tonight and they haven't canceled yet, how crazy if they dont and i go and spin just for the love of "Money"
Sometimes real life trumps everything. Make sure you tell the important people that you love them. I couldn't find my mother due to a missed flight /flying stand by/ and international foolishness. But it gave me another reason to see how deep the love for my family runs..deeper than thee abyss, thats for sure. Everyone is ok and everything is cool now thankfully....
I had a conversation about the lack of authenticity in hip hop music today. No fingers to point at specific people just the lack of creativity. I understand imitation is a form of flattery and if you admire and artists music and style, and even in the infant stages of your musical growth. You emulate to learn; but eventually you have try to find your voice and do your own thing. It seems like we have not seen anyone hit the airwaves who doesnt fit a certain prototype. He sounds like him. My conversation was sparked by me being made aware of some white female rappers (Kreyshawn) getting a pass for saying nigga and being ignorant to the meaning of "Real Rap"......it really doesnt compute for me. I believe that there are some voids in hip hop especially when it comes to female artist getting respect and being accepted by the mass media. To make themselfes interesting girls have to jump out the window to earn a stripe. But this isn't just the problem with the lack of support for female hip hop artist. Its the problem with people thinking that their music is the best and unless its pure or true to what you think is good music, no one will be satisfied.
But off of my tangent and on too something new

I will skip a few weddings this year i am tired of going to weddings even djing weddings can be a pain even though they pay well.
