This album is undeniably dope...like what these dudes are doing is keeping the essence of hardcore soulful hip-hop alive and kicking...rhymes, beats, flows, and that aura that says "we tapped in, watch us cook"...@Tuamie_ is on that #JDilla school of sound where the snares and background sounds are all main characters, and MCs @FlyAnakin & @KonceptxJackson are rapping past the margin...like you gotta just turn the beat off on them haha! Loving the energy of them amped on these tunes...you hear the hunger of grinding for respect in their vocal tones. These are those dudes. #TrustMe #MutantAcademy #YesFlyAnakinLooksLikeMethodManEvenMoreInPerson #VAreppin #GetThisInYaLife #PanamaPlusOnRepeat

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

@fatjoe performed a dope then to now set at the #VIBES #ArtBasel show at Toe Jams. All my favorite Crack tunes were let off. Felt like a NY set! And the 4th clip shows you when the mighty #KRSOne showed up in the crowd. His set was next. That last pic is shorty that was in front of me haha

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
