Been a long time coming for my Lil sis Diamond, in the studio working and working. The hours we put in on the road and shows. Between the big homie Scrappy and Diamond, its been a everyday hustle since I’ve been here in September. Sis been doing this since she was 14 and still putting out banging music. She Just dropped her Cocaine Waitress mixtape hosted by DJ Holiday last night. Something to hold over the masses till her debut solo album comes out on Jive. I’ve been sitting on this track for months and I can finally put it out. This Karma is one of my favorite studio sessions I sat in, Chinkie Brown is like next to get on too. She’s of Atl’s best kept secrets working in the background for years. Reminds me of that Miseducation Lauryn Hill. You’ll hear about her soon. Both of them on this track is clean. Fuck with it.
Been home and its real quiet. Lil brother, the roommate, is gone on tour and I couldn’t get back home to Japan for the holidays. Its not the same without family and friends. This would be the first christmas I’ve been on the solo dolo. So what has been occupying my time here in Atlanta? Dexter Season 1-5 DVDs. I was a little salty seeing everybody’s tweets and pictures of being with my family, but I’m cool now. Talked with my brothers and sister on skype and that’s was about it. Not really in the holiday spirit at all, not raining on no one’s parade. First time for everything. Atlanta did get some snow, that was cool for all of 10 minutes and right back in the house. I miss the Christmas on the beach like back in Hawaii growing up. This whole cold thing is for the birds. I got till Jan 3 before the bro comes back so I got hella free time to edit on video, figure out my website design and script write. Sidenote, I’m helping my homie Dannie shot a short film called “11”. Its going to be hot. That’ll be the move for next get that shot and edited so we can premiere it for the top of the year. Got the next short film on deck, when we get all the details worked out. Its going to be a beast. Slowly building up my portfolio and networking my ass off here in atlanta with the people in “Black Hollywood”. Its been a major learning experience and humbling to say the least. Great to know people are paying attention to the work I have done and been taking that and becoming a better artist. Aight I’m rambling now, everybody be safe. Enjoy your family and be happy. Life is good. Laters.
