Sounds Called Ravers Got You Craving More and More

Cokni O' Dire - Raggamuffin and Stay

So wha, I was in LA last month yea? It was nice and all that. Did a rave with INI Production With my mans Arly and Shakespeare.

On June 25th we did a little musical thing called ... Actually I was a big musical thing, Electric Daisy Festival. Heard of it?
Well actually, it was their 10 year anniversary. It was banoodles. The crew Umoja was in effect with the absence of Tomas, Stevie G, and B-Love, but the hardcoresome foursome gave 'em nuff more some (my nephew Jordan used to say when he was a toddler after he was given some candy that he wanted "more some").

Everybody was killing it and had the lawn RAM!

In 2009 I'd like to bring The Lawn to LA. Stay tune and in touch as we continue to nice up session for you with the Unity Sound - UMOJA!!

Pickney Have Man A'Run Up & Down

Cokni O' Dire - Raggamuffin and Stay
Man weh have pickney, who love fih dem pickney, cyaan relove to wha and wha me a talk bout. Kid wranglin' is no bed of rose. When My wife and I had one joint, we thought, prayed, and planned to do all that was necessary for the child's betterment.

Saved for her education, put her in pretty dresses, raised her in the way she should go so that when she is old she won't depart from it.

Then the next once bounced out and we kept the same intention its just that, as you can overstand, mad challenging to support ya cause when kids require nuff energy.

I mean toting the pickney too and fro, feeding, cleaning, etc., wears you out! Now with the final entry, my son, we put most of our energy into doing whatever it takes to get them to bed so that we can at least get 5 hrs sleep.

Its Real and You Know it Gets Realler

Its Real and You Know it Gets Realler

Its 2:43 AM on Tuesday, February 21, 2006, the second day of my vacation from UPS and I have decided to stay home rather than go to LA like I had planned. Being at home will give me more time with my wife and children that I haven’t had as I have been working. I still got to my other job at 11AM, but it’s a vacation from the grunt work I do at UPS. With this I have more energy to run around with my three kids and stay awake as I talk with my wife catching up on everything I missed while I was sleep.

Being married rocks! Having a friend who wants to be your friend is priceless. I like my wife yo. The thing his I forget that she is a delicate vessel and I talk to her in a way that is les than appreciated. I don’t mean to be harsh; it’s just the way I talk. Growing up in NY its so loud and my homies would always be quick to snap on me that I built up a habit of responding with an attack whether I was trying to be funny or defending my self from whatever I deemed and insult from whomever.

February 22, 2006 At the Crib. 5:28

Today was hot. Kind of got up sluggish. Woke up around 3:30. Still institutionalized by UPS to get up at that time to go to work. My boy Naz got up with me and we had good little ole time playing on the couch. We also watched the remainder of the Jarmusch film “Deadman”. Man I wish that I had a different schedule where I could get 8 hours or more of sleep and be more involved with the kids morning routine.

We pray about that blessing which brings me to right now talking to my wife. We believe our friendship has been suffering over the years primarily due to cultural and spiritual clashes. We were recently made to understand, through bible study, that Satan is consistently building wedges between us causing discord. God won’t bless our lives, as we desire, if we are not unified. God is one. He doesn’t do anything without His Son.

That’s why the general acknowledgement of God has no power. It’s trivial to say, “God bless” and more powerful to say “In Jesus’ name.” I am learning more and more about our Savior Jesus Christ to have a relationship with Him rather than a religion.
