been working on the book all week, got huge sections done… should be ready for order by halloween or christmas…

very sad people canceling for cook out… its ok, what fun they will miss…

been rough week, mom may be sick… my heart stops…

and as i slept among your bones
the only home i had come to know
my brittle heart against your radius
the dust on my face

this dirt floor
fuck this floor
i could not give you velvet
or cotton, or even pashmina

what son am i

Bad rapper!

This is why I don’t stress about wanna-be rappers that rip me off. This is the “rapper” that I made an amazing video for, and which he removed the copyrights off of, which broke the contract between us. Instead of doing the adult thing, like put the credits back on his video, he chose to leave the video as is, leading to youtube removing the video for copyright violation.

Not to mention that this man lies about being apart of “Def Jam Records” and sucks so bad that he steals tracks off of sounddogs, and makes up his own label that he is the only artist for, and is momma/sister has to pose as his manager. I wonder how many child support payments he missed paying cause he spent all his momma/sisters money on a music video?

So as you can see, other than taking money from my family, copyright infringement, and acting like a child… his other hobbies include assault, trespassing, and cruelty to children.

What a waste of a human being.
