This is the rhyme that rocked the @diddy #RMC2017 Independent label panel. The young man before you @_kinghoodie of Dade County Miami got up to ask a question and was prematurely cut off before he could ask the 3rd question which was promised by the program producer. Pleading with the panel and the producer and with the backing of the audience, King Hoodie final got the mic back and instead of asking a industry question, he asked "Can I do a quick 16 for yall?" He was met with a few groans but once he started spitting about his home, Dade County and what makes it dope regardless of its issues, he rocked the spot!
So many crowded this man after he actually spit like 32 bars (haha)...some stood to their feet and the panelists all kicked it with him after. I had a great talk with him later in the day, even had a new journalist interview him (piece coming)...it's moments like that, that make me love this crazy industry. Seeing him fight for his shine and rocking it is what hip-hop is about. The crafting of your talent to finally get shine, is the ultimate validation of hardwork and creativity that can change a life.
Shout to you King Hoodie, I know ya gonna win big bro. And shout to @dadewear for picking you for this campaign.
Follow him yall. #DadeCounty #MIami #KingHoodie

When I heard about these @venusetfleur roses that last a year without watering, or resetting, I was like 🤔. Now that they are here and smelling good and jet black (✊😂) I think they gon' make it like Jada, Styles P and Eve (see what I did there?). The VEF team made it easy for yall dudes. Let's see...how many times do cats mess up in a year? You can just point to those joints everytime you are in the dog house haha. The gift that keeps on giving, for a year at least (😂). Will check in with ya about them and how they are holding up. Stay tuned. #JustInTimeForTheHolidays #TheyHaveMadColors #OneForTheBooks

Somehow I got up and linked with @btrigglaw and we hit up @therealswizzz @nocommissionofficial Art Space, before we hit it tho we took some street shots and stopped at @fundimension for a quick tour.

Once inside #NoCommisson the inspiration pours over you. Since it was early, the huge wearhouse space was easy to navigate and the pieces were all strong in emotion and feeling. The one where there is an infinity pool made me say how it made me feel outloud, like the view I had on a my vacation. Checked the title of the piece and it was "How Does It Make You Feel?" That was bugged out!

Seeing what Swizz has created has me thinking of restarting my art show I did the summer of 2010 with Jay-Z's #AceOfSpades...might bring it back.

Art Basel was a quick trip for me...the sights on the street also caught me and had an impact on how to repackage content. Check the 1st shot, even the water towers were painted up! Let's see how all these sights end up weaving into my work... #TravelToInspiration #ArtWorld #Soalife #Miami #Wynwood #LifeIsGood #CreateYourWorld @soalife

So after @FatJoe takes us from Miami to the Bronx @teacha_krsone double downs on the BX travels and runs almost all of his hip-hop gems, does random freestyles and even gives a motivational speech for those that he felt he needed to reach. Hip-Hop is a spiritual force, go to a show by the likes of a Joe or KRS and you'll understand. Shit, the last third of KRS' set has @therealswizzz on stage in full hip-hop head mode. Also a Bronx native, you can see the admiration and love he has for the KRS...even Joe waxed poetical about his mentor on the mic.

It was truly dope to rap along with the fellas to all of those selections going back as far as 1986...if you aren't familiar with their work, take a day and go through their albums from the beginning. Understand the times they were in culturally...see how things haven't changed much from Fat Joe robbing his cousin and KRS with guns on his album cover to how they evolved as their careers continued...puts a different light on cats like @21savage who are just expressing themselves, I believe he and the like will evolve as well and still be able to do their ratchet joints when they get older haha... Last night was dope...thanks @wayofwade squad and shout to the art and hip-hop loving crowd of #ArtBasel at #ToeJams #VIBES

I wonder if @rsvpmase and @real_lox thought their verses would be pit against each other 20 years later on social media platforms...it's the ultimate lesson in going hard in every thing you produce. You never know which parts of your career they will pick apart. Or....you can not give a damn and just create your best work and let that represent your self expression.
Still dope to see the debates though haha. #HipHopHeavy #AllThemGuysLethal #StopSleepingOnSheek!! #BadBoyHadSpitters

Had an epic night where I was on both #FoxNews defending some hip-hop icons and on A&E speaking on some hip-hop legends at the same 10pm hour. The gripping docu-series #WhoKilledTupac? is painstakingly going through various theories to find the rap and film superstar's killer/killers. Being in Tupac world for the better part of a year and a half (his 20th Anniversary death coverage and All Eyez On Me movie promo covers, among other things...) I can tell you first hand that Pac's spirit is around us. It is especially present when you are working on his unbelievable life story.

Shout to the whole crew that put this program together @sfredrep @pfrankwilliams. The work is showing. And to think I'm on here with two of my favorite writers in the world: #KevinPowell and #RobMarriott Smh...Never stop dreaming folks. #RIPPac #RIPBig
