Catching Up

So man, it's really been 10 days since I've posted here, great job. Since Hawk was killed I've been thinking way too hard about a lot of this shit and well, I've let a lot of things slide. But the action didn't stop. It just kind of slowed down and got real somber. At any rate, I've got a gang of photos for you, starting from before the passing of out man Hawk and ending with Rapid Ric in Chicago last week. I will dump some art car shit and some other shit in a day or so, along with tomorrows Damage Control. Tune in.

We begin with the launch of URGE today. MTV's new digital music service of sorts where you can learn about new music via my contributions to their hip-hop blog and my programming their dirty south hip-hop station. Today is day one. You can read my Dallas column (and reference some of the many photos down below if ya like) and also a little piece I wrote called "MySpace - It's Just Like Compton."

I'll be contributing regularly as will my peeps Jon Caramanica, Dave Stelfox and Kris Ex. Learn more by clicking link above. I know I'm anxious to see it.

Watch out now.

Elena is the queen of the road, awready.

DJ Eva watches the Simpsons as MC Elena drives the two of them to the beach without Mommy and Daddy.

Alright, man, I been meaning to put these photos from the Rammellzee art show a couple weeks back at the Aerosol Warfare Gallery in Rice Village. Dude produced some pretty incredible stuff while he was here in Houston. From what I know it's all available for sale. Maybe hit up Aerosol Warfare for details.

This little neon beauty greeted me at the door.

Caps One held it down most of the night.

Gonzo worked until past opening getting all the shit straight.

The gallery is off the chain, this was back by one of the bars.

King Klassen


And you, yes you can own one of these Rammellzee masterpieces for just $2,000

Rammellzee refused to don his costume and does not want to be photographed, so his mystery will remain with you. I really never thought I'd ever meet that guy. But yes, he exists.

Then the next day, I got to introduce Tinariwen at the Houston International Festival. They are straight up my favorite band from Mali....

For what that's worth.

Then the next day, Monday, Hawk was killed. I got the news around 12:30 a.m. I was already in bed and Chill called to tell me. I woke up early the next morning and drove totally dazed to Dallas.

Where I, along with the good folks at T-Town Music and my man Jaro assembled about 100 Dallas artists for this huge Ozone feature that I probably shouldn't be telling you about yet but I mean shit, I got all these photos and well, I don't understand protocol. Enjoy.

Hundred Rapper March - walking from T-Town office to the photo shoot location.

What's weird is not even 14 hours after Hawk's passing, I end up on the corner of Hawkins and Elm in the Deep Ellum neighborhood in Dallas for this photo shoot. Seriously we were on Hawkins Street, I couldn't even believe it. Hawk RIP.

The Twins from American Idol say they will double Ozones circulation if we put them on the cover. See all the ladies will buy it and then they won't have to give the ladies posters no more they can just give them magazines.

Then Wednesday night we did the Hawk tribute show on Damage Control. I didn't want to take too many photos as it was really a somber occassion. But I got a few for y'all. Most importantly, Trae's new tattoo.

Big Hawk RIP

Bam provided the audio we played from Hawk's last concert, less than 24 hours before he was murdered.

Byrd, C-Note, Black Poet

Then the next day Rapid Ric and I headed to Chicago where he spun at the Pontiac Cafe. Shit wa soff the chain. Thanks to Seven from Chocolate Industries for the tight party. See him every first Monday of the month at the Pontiac Cafe. See Rapid Ric with Devin the Dude at Intonation Fest Chicago June 24th.

Rapid Ric

WMD's - Whitey's Makin' Dollars - My man E.C. Illa and myself. E.C. Illa is an independent rap pioneer. Do your homework.


Tim Summers is the editor of Houston based magazine Envy, however I met him back int he day when he wa spublishing Velocity Magazine in Chicago. I wrote for hm back in those days, and always mean to now. Fucking weird to just coincidentally run into him in Chicago.

DJ Risky Business has toured with Juice and releases incredible mixtapes.

My boy Bart (left) probably designed your toothbrush.

And well, that's it for now. Check URGE throughout the week for more realness.
