a friend and peer from my years in montreal, i have been watching the meteoric rise of my homie A.M. aka Marcus Troy since his first forays into blogging and expressing his personal opinion in a public forum.

he and i used to have our friday sessions at the shop in montreal, just bouncing ideas back and forth and shooting the breeze about things we were passionate about: music, technical outerwear, design, sneakers(obviously), beautiful women, community, street art, online networks, communication, heritage, travel, etc.

now he has a nike-sponsored platform to give others a chance to share their story and express their individuality. i took the time to write mine, i think you should too. if you read this blog regularly, you’re already a maverick because neither Kaeweezy or myself fit inside a box. we are truly mavericks in our own rite.

hit this link to see what i’m referring to, or he’ll show up and make a grumpy face at your birthday dinner too.

Cratery 19: feat. Frank Dukes

This month for Cratery, we’ve enlisted the help of none other than homie/digger/producer extraordinaire Frank Dukes.

For those unfamiliar with his stellar production work, get familiar. This is how it went down: we went 3-for-3 with a wide array of joints from psych to soul, west-Indian funk to Bollywood brainmelters.

You’ll notice that there’s no tracklisting for this Cratery. The information is classified. However, we did give you an eBay-esque description that may help you decode the secrets contained within our crates. Just kidding, the descriptions won’t help you at all.

Regardless of all of that, we present to you:

1. Fantastic Soul *Horn Stabs* SAMPLES-*cue burn,surface noise. Plays fine*
2. MONSTER FUZZ SOUL!! 45 RARITY
3. “Ain’t no sunshine” HIP HOP BREAKZ
4. Shady Brook LP Hard-to-Find Soul!

Meeting of The Minds

24 03 2010

This is but one of many pics taken one night after 24 Carat Tuesdays @ Andy Poolhall. Late night eats at Taste of China.

Not sure what it is that (L-R Benzo, Jaz and T.R.A.C.K.S) find so amusing, but whatever it was it must’ve been good.

shouts to the others in attendance that night,too. Pretty sure Bozack Morris was in the cut alongside Big Jacks (?), Arcee the homegirl Natalie, Asicks and myself (?) shouts to whomever I’ve forgotten. That was a great late night food flex with hella jokes and good times.
