mikelectic TEAMWORK THURSDAY // When life throws the unexpected at you, make sure you have the right TEAM of people that are willing to get down in the trenches with you. We're designed for COMMUNITY and life is not meant to be done alone. We all carry a unique set of gifts and talents that, when utilized COLLECTIVELY puts us all even individually in a better place to win.
Over the weekend the center bearing on my truck unexpectedly failed and the entire drive shaft needed replacement. The brethren @tmlionheart even with all his responsibilities as a full-time husband, father of soon-to-be two, veteran Porsche technician, and business owner created time to come through in the clutch for a brother. Appreciate you fam.

mikelectic It's an honor to add the "Mortal Man" original piece in acrylic by the dope and talented Olivia Odiwe @illestration to the bedroom wall. You can cop copies of this piece and others at her spot. #igotthatOG #supportdopeartists

Growing up in LA, I always connected with Pac, his music and what he represented. I think as a society we've skewed what it really means to 'keep it real' but Pac did just that. You may not have always agreed or liked what he said and did but you could always count on that it represented his TRUTH in the moment. To me Kendrick embodies that same spirit and in a lot of ways is continuing the mission that Pac had started. Kendrick recognizes his influence and is on mission to utilize it to see his city changed. And I respect that.
I've come to realize that everyone's story, YOURS and mine included, is POWERFUL and how we choose to live it and share it on whatever level and platform we have truly has the ability to EDUCATE, ENLIGHTEN and INSPIRE others particularly of the next generation. We all have influence.. But the real question is how are you using it? "I remember you was conflicted, misusing your influence. Sometimes I did the same; abusing my power, full of resentment. Resentment that turned into a deep depression. The evils of Lucy was all around me. So I went running for answers. Until I came home... Made me want to go back to the city and tell the homies what I learned. The word was RESPECT. If I respect you, we unify and stop the enemy from killing us." #mortalman #topimpabutterfly #hiphopquotables

mikelectic My idea of an update. Check @christne.p feed for the spread. Danmade lasagna, inch and a half thick ribeye, salleyprep'd veggies and bottles of vino and scotch. #catchingupwiththehomies #finediningwithaview #lovingthissummerweather #nycsummers #aboutlastnight #rooftopvibes #empirestate 3w

mikelectic A random night in '08 a storm was ripping through NYC and I decided to trek it out dolo despite it to catch the Boot Camp Clik at the Blender Theater. Had a feeling I would regret it if I hadn't. Due to the conditions the spot wasn't even a quarter filled but the BCC came out, shouted down everyone who made it and said it didn't matter if they were in a sold out arena or if only 10 people were in the crowd they would murder the stage regardless. And they did just that. For the next 3 hours the 50 or so of us in attendance witnessed one of the most genuine and raw moments in hip-hop.
Today we lost one of the greats. Sean Price aka Kimbo Price was hands down one of the illest lyricists to ever bless the microphone. In tribute of the man I had to post this blackberry capture of P from that night (apologies on the quality). Ruckus like "f*** points!"//
Earth, Wind, and Fire out your face when the God smack em,
Eight spit, face lift n**** when Sean rappin//
N**** hope Sean pop, n**** know Sean flop,
Johnny Rambo s*** f beam with the long stock//
I told these motherf***ers I ain't playing around this time

mikelectic I remember the exact moment and feeling I got when I first popped in the '2001' album. The quality and perfection in the production and the transparency in content made it a clear standout to anything that was out at the time. Tell me you ain't scrunch your face and almost break your neck when you first heard 'Still D.R.E' or knew Dre legitimized himself in the game again and went straight for all the doubter's jugulars with 'Forgot About Dre'. In a current era where we're forced to accept a feud as hard as Charmin btw Meek and Drake as a legitimate rap battle beef, Dre snatches the "back to back" title because 'Compton' is that exact '2001' album in 2015. There's a lot to be said and respected of Dre in waiting (16 years!!) until he could fully stand behind a project before putting it out; especially in an age where "artists" pump out half-assed singles, mix tapes, and albums that'll get a little play on the radio and club now but no one would remember it 6 months later. If you're a hip-hop head or just enjoy quality music, get this album.

mikelectic Yesterday marked our one year anniversary as @passtherockteam A year ago we walked into the HC Juvenile Detention Center with a lot of uncertainties, unsure what we were doing, how we would be received but we remained steadfast on God's promise and calling; that He could use us and our stories to inspire and bring HOPE, LOVE, and LIGHT to the next generation. Big up all the volunteers over the year that have sacrificed their time to pour into our kids.
As we enter this next season of Pass the Rock, we're excited to also be unveiling our new logo and website today at 7am PT and 7pm ET. #hourofcompletion #newlooksameheart
We appreciate all your continued support and prayer. #passtherockteam #onmission

mikelectic #fridayfeels That moment when you first spot the ocean above the horizon, when your toes first curl into the soft sand, and when the tide pulls back in and your feet sink as the sand around washes away.

mikelectic A widely known proverb is expressed as 'a man is known by the company he keeps' and I've been extremely blessed to have the dopest people in my circle. And these three are no exception. @stanxpark @mizzxpai have known me for 18 years strong and knew me when I was at my worst -- "wife-beater in the club" days. But even through all the drama they stuck with a kid and I'm excited to walk into this next season of life with them.
Stan you're undoubtedly going to be an amazing dad -- raising your son in love, in God, in purple and gold and teaching him to live better and dream bigger than we did. Love you and @jeanjukim. A big congratulations on your engagement @mizzxpai. A true testament in the power of pray lol Got em! Can't wait to witness you and Anthony build your lives together -- with whatever other crazy amphibians/reptiles added to the growing farm.
And no words nor introduction is needed for @christne.p She's the absolute best and I love her to death.. Literally til DEATH!! 😈

mikelectic Marley must've spotted a hotty because he's on his lean like dammmmnnn!! #fatherlikeson #whenispotmommyinacrowd #thisismybelovedsonwithwhomiamwellpleased #pimpinsincebirth #iguesshelikesitinBK
But hey if you guys could take a quick moment to lift him up in prayer we'd really appreciate it. His bloodwork came back showing elevated levels in ALT so he's going in for further testing in the morning to see if his liver is functioning properly. #nomorewhiskeyforhim #feelinglikedenzelinjohnq #wegothimsingingoceans #marleymaximus
