BEWARE: FALLING NAMES! (the sa-ra release party(s)

so me and von pea rolled up to the fader last night to check out the sa-ra listening party and all the FREE BEER that was advertised. as we get tehre im seein niggas double fisting (pause) rollin around with 3-4 kinds or beers in their arms but i couldnt find shit but chilled poland springs. so i hollered at my fader friends (i think they work there lol) and we did infact miss the beer :( we were 45minutes late! now either them niggas was on some frathouse beer pong shit or they had like 3 six packs of heineken, corona and mgd. regardless i got to see my industry (related) friends as usual. even bill came out! (MIDWEST STAND UP!)

sa ra made their rounds and shook hands, kissed babies erruuuuh ladies and i got to holler at o'mas and shaafiq. really really cool dudes. taz was there too but i aint catch up with him, however i DID spot illmind, maria and the rest of the missing link music family :) my mans fresh daily and starr were there, blacksmith music was up there, squeeze radio too. damn it was alot of ppl in there... shit i know ALOT of niggas up here lol. thats crazy to me, like i know alot of ppl here in nyc, its kinda reassuring in a way like 'this move was not for naught, you are networking and working and its gonna be okay' im homesick as shit tho

(sidebar: i need to find anohter place to pay rent at cus i think this may be ending, i just kinda overheard something :/

so yeah we were there like 15 minutes before it was fucking over and we were still sober. i mean i aint expect to get PISSY but having a free beer was on my agenda for monday since friday. at anyrate me and von rolled out with sucio smash and jnota to listen to some new EXCLUSIVE shit from a group that i know at least ONE of you would cream over (oh and the new shit does sound fresh.. really fucking fresh) and go to canal room for what we THOUGHT was a live performance.

well it wasnt, it was just kind of a watch the dj industry listening party. so much so that when we actually danced ppl gawked, HOARD! like 'oh shit they are dancing! wtf?!?!' but it wasnt a total waste cus i bumped into my dude double0 and we got to choppin it up about his plans and such and its lookin good for hiphop in 07. ice t showed up with coco and man o man i was hype, not about coco i mean yeah she fine but sheit nigga ice t is hip hop history! COP KILLER!?! HOME INVASION!?!? man listen, i aint get to speak to him but him bein there made the party official, more so than when they announced dame dash and fonzworth bentley who were both in the building.

but it wasnt nary a drop of free liquor there either. so i ended up buying a beer nad beggin che grand for one. well not begging but me and che are each others enablers. if we are at the bar and i got nothing but 4 in my pocket ill give it to him if he needs to get closer to a beer cus i know he will do the same for me, shit he has done the same and i know his struggle so i respect that for real! thats no slight to the rest of the lessondary bar scene regulars... spec and von we are all enablers... we lift each other up in times of soberiety... and thats a beautiful thing

so yeah... you know alot of business happens in these social industry settings and im not really gonna speak on what went on but 2 kinda major things went down last night and i need to send out follow up emails today...

let me get on that..
