First song I memorized "Children's Story"
Here's something from me to you.
Richard D. Walters (born January 14, 1965), better known by stage names Slick Rick, MC Ricky D and Rick the Ruler, is a rapper. Originally from South Wimbledon, London, England, he moved with his family to The Bronx in 1975 where he met B-Weezy who taught him how to rap. Rick's characteristic eyepatch was acquired after being blinded in the right eye by broken glass as an infant. In a VH1 special, it was revealed the broken glass was caused during a holiday dinner gunfight. He is best known for a series of rap recordings during the 1980s, including "Children's Story" and "La Di Da Di". Once he gained a degree of wealth, he earned a reputation for wearing an enormous amount of gold and diamond jewelry, including many large necklaces with giant pendants, bracelets, huge rings on each finger, and a gold tooth.[2
I had never seen the video before. I also found the original song that they had sampled from.
Today - Tom Scott & the California Dreamers
I'm up on my jazz more, now. Somehow im fond of how it inspired hip-hop.
I can say the same for the Blues.
GET UP ON YO MUSIC. =]

Not a fan of the All-Over prints. However, I have seen some nice stuff from Bape lately. Seeing that the Hype is almost dead, might consider purchasing something nice and settle.
Fuck it, I'm not waiting for someones approval or anything.
Just need to get my cash right, because there shit isn't cheap.
But i'm pretty sure ya'll knew that. haha.
This movie inspired me as a child. I literally used to watch it everyday. I was potty trained watching this movie and I feel the need to tell everyone to watch it just one more time to bring back old memories. Better yet, if you have never seen this movie before, I highly suggest you watch it.
On another similar topic. I was in SLB with my friends and saw a pair of P.F. Flyers. I bought them then&there. Just to bring back old memories.
NOTE: nike isn't everything. buy what you feel is comfortable and you. DO NOT BUY SHIT TO IMPRESS OTHERS. if you have a passion for something, or feel the need to express yourself a certain way, i suggest you start by doing that now.
See how far it gets you in life.
