Can't Touch Ft. Stik Figa & Wrathmatics (Produced by Wrathmatics)

Cant-Touch-ART.jpg

Recorded this in Sacramento, CA at the homie Wrathmatics house in his dinning room, spring of 15, after cooking the beat up the night prior. I spent two nights of a week long trip to Northern California in SAC to meet the homie and get to know a place that seemed to be calling. I grew up a skateboarder so every city in California holds a special place in my heart and the serendipitous work I did with Wrath the year prior made it a prime destination. A few months later Wrath hit me with the feature from Stik and a soon to be lost thrid verse was recorded. Life often times comes before the art we create and ‘Can’t Touch’ was one of those victims. I was learning production while dealing with my own demons and the homies likewise had things in their life that took the steering wheel. Super stoked to let yall have this one after way to long of a time. Between the beat and features alone this deserved to be heard!

Faded (Prod. by Wrathmatics) [Animated Lyric Video]

Faded is produced by the homie Wrathmatics which automatically makes it a special track. Always appreciate when we can link on music. One of the illest humans i’ve got the fortune to meet through this music stuff. Peep the second of three animations from my newly released project ‘Bare Man’ streaming everywhere now!

Get to Give (Prod. by Corey Gipson) [Animated Lyric Video]

The idea of having an animated visual for this project hit me at the top of the year. Being a ‘Dont pay for shit’ ass kinda dude I jumped into experimenting with animation and what came to be the cover art of the album. Between life, work, and getting music finalized the idea of a full visual evolved into a set of lyric videos that Im super stocked to show everyone. Plan to keep pushing where I can take animation and keeping myself involved in art as much as music. Learning balance and how to ride the waves of creation is the goal!!!

Lakia x Theories of Atlantis - Yonnie Cruz & Vincent Alvarez Static IV Re-Edit

The home Justin and I have been editing some old street clips from the shop days so when this Lakai x Theories of Atlantis Re-Edit came across my IG stories I felt the need to flex a bit. Dug through my records and pulled out two classics. An A-Side cut from a somewhat unknown 70s band by the name of Robin Trower starts our evening while Yonnie demolishes the night. The sunrise gives way to the force that is Vincent Alvarez, and although it rises in the east it shines west. The deepest of cuts off Wu-Tang Clan’s 36 Chambers act as a juxtaposition to the western landscapes. The ability to reach into a bag of footage this quality makes me want to do this more often. Although i’ve spent a lot of time the past two years on my board there is a yearning to dive more into the skate industry….

New Art!

I haven’t painted in a little while. Figured Id start with something I love and would have fun with. SKATE SHOES!!! Classics only, please.

Es was easily one of my favorite brands back in the early 2000s when I started skating. From Koston to Penny. The Accel to the Scheme. Es in the early 2000s was the Girl & Chocolate of the skate shoe industry. The team was the best of the best. Their shoes were unique and pushed the boundaries on what skate shoes looked and felt like. Fast forward to today the same level of quality is put into the team, marketing and construction as I remember.

Snow In The South

A rare occurrence in the southern United States. We saw this strange white shit seven years ago...ish. This time earth took the necessary steps to make sure we enjoyed the start of winter. Boredom, a stash of beats with nothing but time and I'm bound to create something. 

P.S. I hate snow.
