Happy Birthday to Me!
I’m so shameless! It’s all about me today! I’ve posted my very first cooking video for you all – its me picking green tomatoes from my garden, and frying ‘em up in the kitchen. Ahem . . . this is also a promo piece for the debut “Dillon” full-length, “Studies in Hunger,” produced by Paten Locke. More to come on that . . . enjoy and please leave some feedback!
From Berlin, to Duval, to ATL!
So 2 of my best friends in the world, the illustrious Batsauce & Lady Daisey have come to Atlanta to kick it with your boy as we prepare to throw down for this year’s A3C Hiphop Festival. (BTW If you live in ATL and won’t be out at the A3C in East Atlanta Village – YOU LOST!) Heads up – Lady Daisey & Batsauce will be performing Friday Nite at the “Women in Hiphop Stage” & Saturday Afternoon at “529″ for the “Jacksonville / Savannah” Showcase.
