CURT@!N$ - " KILLER TAPE " DOWNLOAD

Long ago in galaxy far away,i remember being on the sneakerpimps stage and this kid came on.His name was Curt@!n$ and he got to rap some acapella for sneakerheads, and well the result was them hating on him.I was listening closely though,I heard potential I heard witty punchlines and I heard something that can become something grand if given the proper opportunity.Lets speed this process up,KILLER TAPE came out and I heard some stuff prior in the studio when Time Traveler went to show him some cuts.I was very impressed he set the bar real high and has advanced as a artist and I feel the transformation is complete.He is a complete artists thought I felt this way before,anyways, cuz of the material even before this tape.Download this shit and you will hear what Im talking about.Check him out, its Curtains for most niggaz careers

10.Deep Holiday 2010 x Vulkan the Krusader

It's the Holidays and my 10.Deep family has brought out their collection of garments to these Brooklyn streets.I am lucky enough to be one of the few to be blessed by the Tenth Division.They have been listening to my music and even at that I am grateful for the love they have shown back.In the midst of chaos I bring you some new pieces I recently obtained from my last trip to the Office.The pieces are superb and comfy for these winter days.Ben handed me a piece in which only 48 were made,the camo button up shirt is on some shit it's fucking Swagged the fuck out.Other pieces I love,are the classic denim jacket I got, never got something that fitted me as well as this Jean Jacket.Always good shit from the minds at 10.Deep,always creating always thinking ahead of the curve.Check out the rest of the collection on the website and if you look anything you see here go cop at their online store.

1637 Snapback Champion Square x Lethal Inspiration

This is the Snapback cap from Champion Square x Lethal Inspiration.My homie Nice from Harlem has a shop and the address is 1637.He recently handed me this DIY hat at the Sneakerpimps event and I really appreciate when a friend hands me something he made himself and I rock it with pride.It's something made by hand and reps for what we stand for out here in New York.Hustle hard work and the building of a independent brand trying to do something with themselves.If you want one,you can get one at his website for $25 so it's not breaking your bank.Check out the pics and the link below will lead you to the Nice in Harlem shop for Champions Square.

The Deconstruction of V

Reinventing yourself is not a easy thing to do in life.This coming year,I am turning myself to a full on music artist.I have been going through so many struggles internally and externally.I am flawed person in every sense,very vulnerable and passionate.I am moving out my old Apt,now cuz next year i have to just perform everywhere I can.Other than being completely broke now and owing some money that's easily do-a-ble.But Im gonna be a nomad? How does one come to this decision?It's so hard when you already booked some shows and are gonna be basically couch surfing next year.Why get a new Apt? It's what people don't see,or don't know when you start a choice like this.Sacrifice must be made for the arts, and this is a prime example.
My mixtape has had some snags from people pulling their beats causing me to be too late for sponsorship deals being made to people hitting me up over Artwork controversy and features not being turned in on time.It's really fucking frustrating at times.I have performed just some handfull of songs here and there.Star Slinger has been massively busy and his songs are garnering most of the buzz,I hope to talk to him soon when he gets stateside.I replaced the tooken away songs with unknown dope producers from Cali and Houston and Im gonna finish the tape here in Florida at these studios here.I only hope my sponsors know that this shit here is hard work and I am very nervous about these outcomes.In any case I still want other avenues of work to be open still from writing and photography to marketing.If one outlet can open the doors to others,I would love that.Even if something big does happen I still wanna write,take flicks and market other peoples brands.
Friends lately have been a let down,except for a couple exceptions.Whispers of dirt slinging and fake smiles is not cool.Especially when you keep your mouth shut, in your outside the four walls you call home.Others around me, have grown to be fake and pretend to like me cuz they have a weird sense about me.Seems sometimes, the NY mentality of "this is my place" comes into play alot or "we been here grinding before you, get in line".It's not that, its just you didnt know how to grind or maybe your product is not built in a way that seems to be a viable commodity?Relatable? or even worth consideration for sonic overhaul and prep work.In terms I know, you don't like me, but you respect me cuz you keep shaking my hand.Real friends? not many around here for damn sure.
I missed my family for so long,wow it's been years since I seen them.I truly miss them, and love them dearly.I do this for them,for a better life for them to live and for them to not ever question where they will be or when will things fall apart.My heart is stronger than most men,I know this know.I can take scrutiny,pain,two faceness,betrayal,shadyness,negative remarks with the best of them.See, i found out long ago, that life is better living when YOU DONT GIVE A FUCK WHAT ANYONE THINKS ABOUT YOU.This is why when you read my blog, know this.You will never punch me, or touch me, because the minute you realize i am the nigga that is looking in the mirror when you wake up,I am you.You are just too scared to face yourself sometimes.This is something you must learn young jedi's.
Thank you Andy K, you deserve what Im gonna do this with this.Trust me brother you wont be forgotten ever i will miss you.Pioppo,you are one of the most good hearted human beings and geniuses of sounds I have ever met, keep doing it your name will be in folklore one day.Lady J, I loved you always loved you as my sister, always will be, I truly will miss that family enviroment when I step out when i come back to pack my things and get out that space.It was a wild ride, though I must convince a pretty epic series of funny episodes and HBO specials are gonna be made in the name of us.Where is the fucking disconnect, Retardesaurus are gonna be epic ass shows.
I let you go,I don't want to see you.Lemme just say that, I've moved on as a one piece ensemble.Nothing is needed beside me, the spinning carousel of women in my life has been stopped.I don't want that, what the fuck happen to romance?Being taken by someone, can a nigga just show you that without being taken for granted? Let a man be a man, and take it if you can cuz you will never see it again eventually when you pick wrong again.Don't take nothing for granted,and give it all consideration and chance,no one is meant to be together forever.SO next time, you cant cry in a corner about it.That shit is for the birds,and your all gonna die alone if you think im bullshitting.We are meant to love one another, not to fuck and die alone and hurt one another time and time again, how the fuck loves that shit? Oh...you do.

IM READY
