Time To Shine

I'm 42. I been this age since February. Yea I'm old. I don't feel old, but I know I'm not 16. I have lived in NY, LA, and now I'm in TX. I love Hip Hop and Dance hall. It's so intrinsic in my life. I grew up around block parties. I used to hear the music blaring out my building in The Bronx. In Queens I witnessed the Albino Twins around the corner from me KILL the microphone. I was a human B-BOX and rocked with LL Cool Jay and Rozell before they had demo tapes.

I built with Divine Styler the Freestyle Fellowship, The Pharcyde, The Born Jamericans, Sammy Levi, Scringer Ranks, Shabba, Stereo One with Stitchie and Papa San, Frick and Frack, Biz Markie, The Beatminerz, Grand Puba, Tribe Called Quest and all types of other niggas.
I ain't writing my life story here. I will do a book and a flick. Two a them matter fact. I just wanted to encourage you and myself who are blessed to get old in this dangerous world to know who you are and make the most of your experiences. The LORD has led me to be a DJ after I been an MC a breakdancer a graffiti artist, a record exec and a music retailer. I believe it's my calling and I know something big is going to happen through my efforts.

I'm looking forward to it and you oughta too. SALUTE all my DJ's and Music lovers, Artists, producers who think they have gotten too old to do them. You might not be in position to do what you want and at that time you might have to come to grips and let it go. But when you know you doing what you supposed to do regardless of how contrary it may be to popular belief, trust your maker and thank Him because His Will Be DONE! BONG BOOM KABOOM

I can't be more agreed with you Cokni, never is too late to do what you really want to do. I'm 29 and i started to learn with the wheels of steel this year. I've always wanted to do it, i needed it. Never too late, and nevermind what others say!
