I’m doing pretty decent, man. I’m doing pretty decent. Only one of my three phones is cut off at this time. It’s better having two than three of my phones cut off. And my air conditioning is on. No doubt.
In your journal entries you’ve expressed your frustrations over the entire handling of your project Pick Your Poison. Are you happy with anything surrounding the project?
As far as the album itself, as an artist, you’re always going to look back and be like, ‘Damn, I should have done this like this and I could have done this like that.’ That’s you scrutinizing your shit as an artist. A lot of the business around me, I didn’t enjoy how that went down, per se. But as far as the project itself and considering all of the roadblocks that I had, like the publicist who basically jumped ship, Phantom and label guys who don’t keep their word and renege on things that they said they would pay for, broke investors and shit like that, I mean, considering all of that, it’s selling consistently and I’m happy about that. And the video is not even out yet and the response is crazy. When I’m in the spot or on the street, I have people coming up to me telling me they love a song or they love a skit on the album. I got the people telling me that I entertained them. If they’re telling me that, then my job is done. As far as me getting my point across, I’m happy with it. As far as the other shit surrounding it, I’m not ever going to be 100% happy with it anyway. This was just to get people ready for The Money Shot anyway.
You’ve touched on this in your journal, but do you have any regrets over having Immortal Technique host Pick You Poison?
For people that weren’t familiar with me, it just made me look like I was the dude’s son or whatever. It was supposed to be a mixtape-album, which is basically what it was. It wasn’t a real cohesive album. It was the street joints and the ‘hood joints. That’s what I handed in. That’s what was requested. The people who are familiar with my material know that I released a mixtape titled Pick Your Poison over a year ago. It was hosted by myself and Immortal Technique.
Anybody who knows how I get down knows that we have been partners for damn-near 10 years. He’s popping now so I guess the label decided, ‘You know what? Let’s make it ‘Immortal Technique Presents’ because he’s hot right now.’ It kind of put a damper on things for me because it looks like he’s putting me out and that he’s my mentor and that’s not the case. I’m not going to get into it, but he is not my mentor. This album is executive-produced by Poison Pen. If it was an Immortal Technique project, I would assume that it would be coming out on Viper Records. I’m not an artist on Viper Records, but they’re family. It was kind of misleading with that “Immortal Technique Presents” shit. We did songs together because he’s my man, not because he’s my mentor. But if it raises a few eyebrows and makes a few more people cop it, then hey, it is what it is.
My clique, Stronghold, is one of the only cliques in hip-hop where nobody in the clique sounds like each other. Look at C-Rayz Walz. That shit he did with Sharkey, Monster Maker, doesn’t sound like shit Poison Pen would do. Immortal Technique doesn’t sound like anything L.I.F.E. Long does. But anyways, that’s what it is.
You have a very up-and-down relationship with your engineer Ariel Borujow. Did you get the mixes you wanted from Ariel for Pick Your Poison?
Your man came up to me at Rock the Bells and tried to steal a CD from the booth where we were selling our merchandise. I was walking by and I almost stepped on him because I didn’t see him. He’s about 2’6”. Whatever, man.
But all jokes aside, Ariel mixed about half of the album. Half of the joints were done prior to me meeting Ariel. The mixes speak for themselves. Ariel is a quality engineer and we always bump heads because he says he’s the best. Besides that, he’s my brother and he put it down. He recorded “The Stuy” and I didn’t even expect it to sound like it did when he mixed it. He brings the best out of these tracks.
How many more times can you fire Ariel?
I mean, every time I see him I fire him. I did a song with Nems, Breez Evahflowin’ and Phase One over a DJ Static track. I did the shit in April for this project that we have coming up and this miscreant still hasn’t mixed the shit, talking about, “Oh, I’m going mix it next week.” He’s running out of ‘next weeks.’ He's running out of time. He wants me to jump on his beats, but I let a lot of that shit slide a lot of the time because that’s my man.
You’ve worked with DJ Static for a long time. What’s it like working with him?
I’ve been working with him a little longer than I’ve been working with Immortal Technique. Static is my DJ and that’s my Stronghold brother. We’ve grown as artists together. Son is so talented. If you’re familiar with the beat battles that they have out in New York, son is a grand national champion. I’m pretty sure he’s undefeated. Your man has R&B tracks and everything. He’s signed to Music World as a producer. That’s Matthew Knowles’ shit. Your man is very talented. He’s the only dude that really knows where I’m coming from. He’ll hand me a beat CD and he’ll know what the fuck I’m going to pick because he knows me so well. So any project that I do, DJ Static is going to be a part of. I can’t even pay him what he’s worth. Honestly, I haven’t paid him what he’s worth. Static is my friend and he’s my favorite producer. He’s up there with the Just Blazes and the Kanyes. Hopefully sooner than later more people will understand why. And we were born two days apart.
You channel Ice T on “Fif N Da Morning.” How did that song come together?
Honestly, man, I’m a student of the game. I’m not one of those dudes that talk about how they just started to rap. Honestly, hip-hop molded me into what I am. West Coast hip-hop had a huge influence on me. Al lot of my favorite rappers are from the West. Don’t get it twisted, I like KRS, Kane, Rakim, G. Rap, that’s a given. But as far as having that edge, it’s all about the West. My favorite rapper is Ice Cube. Ice T, come on, “O.G.,” you couldn’t feel that? “Fif N Da Morning” is basically a play off of “6 in the Morning” off his song about SWAT breaking into peoples’ homes at 6 in the morning because their gangs were crazy. I didn’t know much about that lifestyle as a child, but it was intriguing to me. One day I was chilling and I was just listening to that shit because I listen to all my classics, like L.A. Dream Team, Too Short and all that old school shit. But yeah, I was listening to that shit and all of a sudden “6 in the Morning” came on. It was on one of those Priority CDs that they used to make like a compilation.
I called my man Chum from the Demigodz up. I had a session with him later on in the week. I told him to take that “6 in the Morning” shit and remake it for me and that I was going to make a song with that shit. I put my own twist on it because I didn’t live that life where SWAT ran up and busted my crib. I had to talk about what we do, like getting drunk, rolling dice and having to kick shortys out of the house. I even talk about rolling a spliff, but that was just for the sake of the story. I don’t smoke. I don’t do any drugs. That was the only fabrication. Everything else was the truth.
Even when I’m talking about the Hollywood chick with the fat ass, that was a true story. I was out in Hollywood with Diabolic, Lou Cipher and Travis, Diabolic’s old manager back when Diabolic was on The Next Episode. We were in the spot and just doing us and this chick gives me her number. I was so faded that Diabolic made me put this other chick’s number in my pager for him and I basically typed over her number. I basically missed out on some Hollywood buns, but it’s all good.
”Fif N Da Morning” basically took me back to the ‘80s. Most of the hip-hop listeners were born in the ‘80s and all of the styles from the ‘80s are coming back. They’re wearing the real big ropes and having the Gumbys and the waves with the parts. So I figured I had to do something for those people. I had to bring it back on some classic Ice T shit. I wish I could get Ice T for the video because that’s probably going to be the next video for the album after the video for “Stoopid” and “Bed Stuy Best Buy” drop. Ice T is the original. He lived that gangster lifestyle and he always had a bad bitch by his side. Son didn’t take no shit even though LL tried to get at him. But Ice T never lost his cool. He’s the only dude that I know that could be so anti-police and then star as a cop in a movie and have nobody bat an eyelash. So shout out to Ice T for making that shit.
You always talk about Ice Cube being another big influence of yours.
Yeah, man. Ice Cube is my favorite rapper of all time and I say that for this reason. A lot of people disagree with me, but that’s why my opinion is mine and it’s not theirs. When you say that somebody is your favorite, it doesn’t mean that every song they did you love, was a classic or was hot. There are Ice Cube albums that I don’t listen to. I only listen to two songs on War and Peace. But at the same time, for Ice Cube to maintain relevancy and legendary status, you have to change the game. Most artists can’t change the game once. This dude changed the game on numerous occasions. He came out and he was one of the driving forces behind N.W.A. He was writing Eazy’s rhymes, so he helped invent Eazy E. N.W.A is one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time. Then he decided to go solo when nobody was going solo. He changed the game again. And before it was cool for these rappers to make movies and things of that nature, Ice Cube hopped in movies and became a damn-good actor. That’s three times. Son changed the game three times before he was 23 years-old.
Then after the records slowed down a little bit and the acting slowed down a little bit, he made a classic with Friday. He’s a successful movie writer, actor and rapper. When it was all about the East Coast and the West Coast was struggling and motherfuckers were on their last leg, the motherfucker came out with Westside Connection. The man changed the game so many times. You have to respect that man. And I’m not saying that I agree with everything he did. He’s done plenty of shit that I don’t agree with. But, son, if it wasn’t for Ice Cube, a lot of people wouldn’t be doing the shit that they’re doing today. They call it the ‘ice grill’ for a reason. Ice Cube is that dude. And his last album, Laugh Now, Cry Later, that album is real tough. That album is real hardbody, just in case you haven’t heard it yet.
What was like recording “Squab” with Amplafire?
“Squab” is an interesting song. I recorded that song after I got the track from Static. I was with Ariel. The shit’s crazy. I called Static and told him, “Let me get that beat.” After I came back from hollering at Static, a lot of people wanted to jump on that beat. Fatz from Da Circle wanted to jump on that beat. But when you hear music, you hear things and I thought my dude Amplafire would kill that shit.
I’ve known Amplafire for a long time and he’s talented. He has a real unique voice and he’s real talented with his rhymes. So I hollered at son and made him get up off of his ass. Son came up in the lab and we just kicked that track. The rest is history. It was supposed to be on the mixtape-album, but Static ended up selling the beat to somebody. I’m not going to mention the dude because fuck it, my shit was first. But yeah, so we didn’t get to use the song for the project because Static ended up selling the beat, but it’s going to be up on the Superstar Jay mixtape I have coming out soon. And Amplafire has BARS DVD Radio, so shout out to Amplafire. Amp is nice, man. I don’t understand, man. That song he did with the Clipse didn’t catch on. Motherfuckers are stunting on my man.
What’s been the most frustrating part about dealing with label people for Pick Your Poison?
Niggas are boldfaced liars. The most frustrating part is people not living up to their word. I’m the type of guy that takes shit at face value. If you tell me X, Y and Z, I’m going to believe that. I don’t know if that makes me gullible or not, but that’s just how I am. So the thing is, if I’m dealing with people and A&Rs, obviously people have to come to the plate. If I sign paperwork and they sign paperwork, obviously we have a binding contract. It’s a crying shame that even when we have a binding contract, motherfuckers still don’t live up to their side of the bargain. You want to sit there and act like it’s all good, but, dog, it’s not all good. So I just don’t like the type of people that don’t live up to their word. If I took it to the street on somebody, I would be wrong. A lot of rappers are trying to be thugs or something. When you think about it, this is my life right here and you’re really trying to stop me from eating. If you’re trying to stop me from eating, you’re obviously a problem to me. We should be trying to help each other, not hinder each other. I just hate it when brothers don’t live up to their word. If you can’t live up to your word, I’m better off doing things myself. I’m better off on my own. These motherfuckers will look you in your eye and tell you that the sky is yellow. But these motherfuckers aren’t here to be your friend. You’re not even secondary to them. All they’re thinking about is the money they can make off of you.
Despite all the hurdles you’ve had to clear, would you consider Pick Your Poison a success?
I actually would. I would consider it a moderate success. It’s still early in the project and I’m still selling records on a consistent level. I recouped already. The records are staying pretty consistent each week. And as soon as I get this fucking money, it’ll help even more. The video is ready to go and I got my video promotion ready. You’re going to really see what’s popping really soon. It’s a success, but it could have gone so much further. But there were some mistakes, but not on my behalf. Motherfuckers who read my journal know what it is. And anybody can hit me any day. My numbers don’t change and I don’t duck calls. Just holler at me.
What’s going on with your album The Money Shot?
That’s coming. This mixtape-album was to prepare everybody for that. That shit is just about wrapped up. I got hundreds of songs, so it’s not even nothing. The Money Shot, that shit is cohesive. That shit is an album. Pick Your Poison is a collection of songs that was put together as a mixtape. The Money Shot is an album. The best way to describe it is that it has more universal appeal. I got some surprises on it. I’m not in regular rotation but I’m getting mixshow play. But I’m not getting regular rotation play. But The Money Shot is definitely, definitely, definitely going to be different from Pick Your Poison, but I’m still spitting and I’m still Pen. I’m still Pen. But I just didn’t do all of the same music on it. I got some shit with JJ Brown and that shit is just stupid. I got some shit with Static, of course, along with Tonedeff and Domingo. Bangout will be on there. He did 50 Cent’s “In My Hood.” Sean Price is on there.
What label is The Money Shot going to come out on?
Fontana wants to put it out. I’m going to go over this paperwork and see how looks. They’re happy with how Pick Your Poison is doing and they want to rush right into it, but Pick Your Poison is still selling. I don’t want to give up on it yet. It’s still selling. I want to get everything I can out of Pick Your Poison before we put out The Money Shot.
You’ve also spent a lot of time on the road with Immortal Technique and Diabolic. What’s that like?
I put on my iPod and turn the shit up real loud! (laughs) ‘Bolic, man, ‘Bolic is a special individual. ‘Bolic is very talented and ‘Bolic is that dude. He’s a fucking monster. He’s a loose cannon. I’ve had to pull him off people plenty of times. He’s usually my roomie. Me and ‘Bolic probably get along better than most of the motherfuckers. But dealing with ‘Bolic is crazy because you never know what’s going to happen. You could get in a squab with motherfuckers or a bar fight. You never know what the fuck is going to happen when you’re with Diabolic. I’ve had to pull him off plenty of people.
Tech is a little more levelheaded. Usually when we go on the road for the Technique tour, he’s like the head of the joint. We’re all family, man. We argue. Shit, we argue a lot. We’re very abrasive individuals. We curse at each other more than you could probably understand. But we all believe in each other and it’s all for the better, man. It is what it is. Diabolic tries to throw people around. He’s a 6’4” former football player, and I’m over 300 pounds, but we have to be responsible. A few years back we were a lot more loose with the hands. But now we’re pretty cool, man. We chill. We rock on shows, get in the crowd, sell our merchandise, go back to the ‘telly and wake up and do the cycle over and over and over again. We’re our own unit. We’re our own security. We’re our own merchandise people. We’re our own everything. We police ourselves. We do everything ourselves. We move as a self-contained unit and everybody serves their purpose. Sometimes I’m in my room, in a liquor-induced coma with three fifths laying around me while Technique is up at five in the morning, doing a thousand push-ups and reading a fucking book. He needs to get out more often. (laughs)
There’s been a lot of rumors floating around over why Immortal Technique cut off his famed mustache. Why do you think he did that?
You have to ask him! (laughs) I’m not going to answer that question!
You’re not going to answer that?
Nope! (laughs) Nope. No. No. No. (laughs)
When you started writing your HipHopGame Journal, did you ever think that people would respond the way they have?
Not at all. When 730 approached me about the journal, I just figured that it was something to do and that it would keep people abreast on what was going on. I saw other journals and they were corny, so I figured, ‘What can I do to make mine different?’ Everything I say in the journal is true. That’s just the type of person that I am. I’m not going to type something about somebody and not say it to them. Honestly, I had no idea that it would become a monster in itself. I didn’t really know that and I don’t think anybody else knew that either. I get requests for the journal every week. People are like, ‘Where’s the journal?’ I really get those questions. I’m at Rock the Bells and people are asking me where my journals are at. Motherfuckers out in Albuquerque, Elemental One and Sac One are like, ‘Where’s the journal?’ Honestly, everywhere I go, people are asking me about the journal. I had no idea about that. I had no idea that that many people would be that interested in what Poison Pen had to say. I’m a very sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek type of person, but I had no idea about it. It’s a good thing. It keeps people talking and it keeps people interested in what I have to do and what I have to say.
Even artists come up to me and ask me about the journal. That shit bugs me out. I was backstage at Rock the Bells and Hell Razah and Timbo King wanted to get their picture in the journal. I couldn’t believe that they read that shit. It’s really taken on a life of its own. I see people posting it up on their websites. That’s cool to me, man. A lot of people know me for that. Some people that know me for that don't even know that I rap and that’s cool too. Obviously it’s a tool to get people to play your music, but if you like me doing a journal, so be it, man. If that’s how it helps you get fans, more power to you, man. If you’re on your Sidekick or whatever it is and you’re reading my journal and seeing if I got drunk this week or what happened with these chicks out here in this state, then that’s great.
I always have a story to tell because I lead a very interesting life. So I always have something to talk about. If you want to have something to talk about, start your own journal or blog out there and maybe you’ll get a following like mine. It’s cool, man. I honestly have to thank 730 for that because that wasn't even in my mind. I started doing that and then other websites started asking me to do blogs on their sites. Every week I turn on HipHopGame and another five new journals pop up, which is kind of interesting to me. Everybody’s doing a journal now and I have to thank you for that. Some of them may have more fans as far as buying more records, but I do have the best journal. It’s all good. I’m a trendsetter. It’s good that people follow what I do.
For the record, do you have the best journal on HipHopGame?
Of course. That goes without saying. I say that with my hands firmly planted on my dick. I say that while I’m standing on my porch in my motherfucking boxers with my gut hanging out. Pen is that dude. It’s whatever. Motherfuckers on the block know the journal. I’m that dude. That’s what it is. I got the best journal out on HipHopGame.
A sign that you have a great journal is when other artists start keeping a subjournal in your comment box like Pumpkinhead did. What’s your relationship with PH today?
Me and Pumpkinhead are cool, man. I stole one of his Scifen shirts the other day. He has his own mixtape popping. Me and PH are good. Our relationship is kind of like my relationship with Ariel. I have to throw a few jabs at them. But Pumpkinhead is family.
Do you have a favorite journal entry?
I have a lot of favorite stories. I don’t remember the numbers. I loved the 10 Commandments to Internet Thugsterdom. I loved it when I told the story about when I threw up and I thought it was a dream. That was a special journal entry too. And the one about Miami on South Beach. That was a great journal entry. The last few journal entries have been more serious because I’ve been going through it and now I’m back to being a more fun dude and I’m going to have more fun stories. I still have the stories about getting drunk, but I haven’t been blitzed in a long time. I haven’t fucked myself up since New Year’s.
You’re also doing a contest through HipHopGame where you’re giving out a Blackberry to the people who buy Pick Your Poison. How many of your friends have asked you for the Blackberry?
Everybody. Every friend of mine that doesn't have a Blackberry has asked for it. Even my friends with a Blackberry have asked for it. But I’m not fixing this contest. This is for the fans. I am the Bed Stuy Best Buy. I got whatever you need. You need ZZ Top albums, holy water or Family Guy bootlegs, I got you, son. If you need Confederate flags or du-rags, I got that, son. It’s all good. Poison Pen’s got that. And if I don’t got that, I’ll get it. I’m a very resourceful dude. If you need some Rogaine, it’s whatever. If you need some fitted hats, it’s whatever. I got it.
How did the Bed Stuy Best Buy come about?
Honestly, man, it just came from me being around and from just knowing so many people. You can ask anybody that knows me, but anytime that anybody needs something, people call me up and I get it. I got clients. It actually stems from me being in the ‘hood and everybody knowing me and also to my old job that I used to have. I’m not going to say what it was, but I used to lace people hardbody. It wasn’t even planned. I just always had shit that somebody needed. El-P has been to the Bed Stuy Best Buy a couple of times. Ras Kass has been to the Bed Stuy Best Buy. When the big homie Redman needed his Ill At Will CDs out in Brooklyn, who did he come see? Whatever you need, I got it. I have a great clientele that hollers at me for my services. And I’m not selling drugs. So let’s get that out of the way. I’m not a drug dealer. I just have a lot of resources. So that’s what it is.
Do you ever feel like any less of a man for not selling drugs, busting guns or doing drugs?
No, I actually feel like more of a man because I don’t have to sit here and say that I do that shit. I don’t have to sit here and rap about clapping gats because everybody does that. Coming from Bed Stuy, firearms are a part of our culture and that’s real, but I don’t have to rap about that every chance I get. Guns are a part of culture no matter where you’re at. Guns are a part of Americana. But the thing is, the dudes that are making these records are acting like their guns are one of ones. They didn’t melt the mold for the gat after you got yours, dick. You’re not impressing me with that shit, son. I’ll whup you, boy. Word is bond. I’m not bulletproof at all. I’ve lost fights. I’ve been stitched up. I’m going to go out for mines though. If we have to go out and handle that, that’s another story. My songs and shit, I try to keep it as 100 as possible. And of course everybody fabricates for the sake of entertainment. But, you know, why do you need five songs about busting your guns on the album? I don’t bust guns for leisure. And if I did, I wouldn’t be making songs about that.
But everybody exaggerates for the sake of records. Look at my big homie Sean Price. He said, “I got little guns that will pounce your melon/I got big guns the size of Mt. St. Helens.” Who the fuck has guns the size of Mt. St. Helens? (laughs) Nobody. It’s all in the sake of entertainment. You can say that shit, but when all you do is try to impress people with gun talk, it all comes back to you. Honestly, I spit tough, but people know me as a joker. I have fun. Motherfuckers know that I’m not walking around looking mean all day, looking to fight somebody 24/7. I can give somebody a pound and smile but at the same time, it’s nothing to mash out. It’s not a problem. It’s nothing.
But you have to know that I’m not going there, going around there all day. Look at my album cover. I’m smiling. I’m cracking a smile and I’m chilling. That’s the type of shit that Pen is on. Look at the intro skit to the album. I poke fun about a lot of shit in Brooklyn. I also poke a lot of fun at myself. I got another song called “Pussy” because a lot of this music that’s out there now is a lot of rappers trying to outscare other rappers. That’s what battles are for. Rappers are trying to outscare and outthug everyone. I’m a rapper but I’m also a hoodlum. I got morals and shit though. I’m not trying to something that I don’t really want to end up doing.
I don’t run around 24 hours a day with the Ruger on me. Motherfuckers are rapping about AR-15’s. Who the fuck has an AR-15? Most people don’t. Give me a break. I’m not rapping about that. But it’s nothing for me to beat you the fuck down. And honestly, nobody got shot on my album but you might hear a fleeting reference to something because I am from BK and that is a part of our lives. I’m pretty sure that there is a fleeting gun-busting moment on my album. Check “Foul Play.” I’m not saying that I’m going to shoot you in the face though. I say “Not T-Boz, but I hug a Mac 10”. But I also say, “If I need to use it.” There are true references, but it’s not like I’m Murder-Death-Kill-Homicide on them.
I’m not major, dog. I’m a regular dude, so whatever. It happens. Whatever, man. Most people have access to hammers. I don’t have to be the next motherfucker that has to rhyme about guns and will shoot you. You got guns? Congratulations. I rap, “Guns, guns, guns, I’m from Brooklyn/Who the fuck don’t got one?” You can go to Wal-Mart to get a gun, so what the fuck does that mean? They’re accessible. That’s great. It doesn’t mean that you’re a killer. You can walk into Wal-Mart with your ID and you can purchase a fucking shotgun. Whatever.
You went celibate and sober to market Pick Your Poison and prepare for it. Looking back, was that a good move?
I was sober and celibate. Honestly, it wasn’t because I couldn’t get no buns. I’m not saying that I’m the flyest motherfucker on the planet. It’s a wonderful thing, but I’m an adult and I’m growing. Not chasing after pussy really helped me stay in line with this project. I don’t regret it at all. I would do it again if I needed to. It’s discipline. I proved that I could do it. I’m glad that I could prove that to myself. I proved that I could do it.
So you proved that you could do it by not doing it?
What’s next for Poison Pen?
Coming up in the fall, Diabolic’s album Liar and a Thief should be coming out and Immortal Technique has his Green Lantern mixtape The Martyr dropping. I have my Superstar Jay mixtape. We have the Rebel Army Tour with Immortal Technique, me, Diabolic, Akir, Da Circle and DJ GI Joe. We’re about to bust out those black North Faces and shit. I got a gang of shows to do, but that’s the main tour that we have popping. I’m doing a few spots on Rock the Bells. You know when school starts I’ll be doing the kegstands and I’ll be back on my grind. So please, man, hide your liquor, hide your women and hide your weed. The weed is for my peoples. I don’t need all that.
What do you want to say to everybody?
Help me scan a few numbers. That’s all I have to say. Peace to everybody that continues to support. Big shouts out to West Coast Goof Ball, Stronghold, Rebel Army, my peoples out in LA, Sick Jacken, Hell Razah, Timbo King, Talib Kweli, Slick Rick and all of my peoples. Shouts out to my peoples. Pick Your Poison: The Mark of the East is out. The “Stoopid/Bed Stuy Best Buy” video is going to be coming out soon. Fuck with it, man. Check it out. Whatever. And shouts out to the DJs that are playing “Stoopid” on the radio. Shout out to DJ Self and Pete Rosenberg. I can’t even name everybody, but shout out to everybody that’s showing me love. Shout out to Jazzy Joyce. Shout out to Star of Star and Buckwild. That’s it, man. Word up. Your friendly neighborhood fatman has spoken.
