When I started out the dream was to get a record deal. I use to dream about working with specific artists and how I would spend days with them perfecting my craft and living life amongst the blessed.
At 17 years old I set forth on a journey that would take me around the world! As I grew older, my art matured. I refined my skills and defined my work ethic. And it didn’t go unnoticed…
Before I knew it things started falling into place. I was called upon to contribute on an official Makaveli-Branded release: 2Pac – The Underground Railroad.
Confident, young, and naive… I walked into Blender magazine’s office. I asked the receptionist to meet with the Editor of the magazine. She replied, “He’s busy.” I replied, “I’ll wait.”
Hours later I got the chance to state my case. I told him about my music, my accolades and what I was hoping to accomplish. Impressed… he stated they’ll do an article on me called “Almost Famous.” And lo and behold, the following month, there was a full page article in Blender magazine about me!
That incident taught me that you can’t wait for things to happen. You have to make them happen yourself!
Through the years I’ve actualized parts of my dream. I’ve worked with and learned from the artists I use to idolize. I have music videos that are in rotation on MTV & VH1 internationally. Videos that I shot, directed, and edited myself!
Now I’m taking on my biggest challenge yet… to create and globally release my first ever full budget album! I’ve teamed up with RocketHub and we’re going to do this together! We’re going to create major music without a major label!

My buddy Big Santa Pimp is coming out with his first album. It’s called Diamonds Glistening In The Eyes of Children. It’s one of the craziest albums I’ve heard, it won’t be for everyone, a lot of people will be offended lol.
Anyways, the album will drop exclusively on Big Santa Pimp’s official site on September 27th. I am featured on about 7 or 8 songs.
Doing things as only Big Santa Pimp does… check out the first promotional video for Diamonds Glistening In The Eyes of Children. Although he’d never admit it, I think The Ultimate Warrior is one of Big Santa Pimp’s biggest inspirations, ha!
Last week I caught up with the legendary Colt Cabana! Known for his work in and out of the ring. Colt is widely known in the world of professional wrestling for his work in the WWE, Ring Of Honor, and all around the independent circuit.
But Colt is also passionate about comedy. He’s done stand up tours and even has his own short web-series. And I can personally say he’s a class act all the way. So check out the 3rd edition of Rockin’ Hip Hop with my special guest Colt Cabana!
