You see the title? Yeah, I’m in Oakland, California now. Stopped in LA first last week, then headed over to Vegas to hangout with the legendary Biz Markie, came back to LA the next day and had a meeting with another legend, Nasty Ness. We were sitting down talking, Ness gets a text that Kobe Bryant passed away. Our last day in LA was a rollercoaster ride. So sad. R.I.P. to Kobe Bryant & his daughter and all the other passengers. We left Ness’ house to go eat some great seafood at the Drunken Crab, returned back to the hotel, I took a little nap and then got ready for DJ Statik Selectah’s birthday party. It was a great time. I met up with model and singer “I Am The Dan”. We wound up meeting The Game, Jadakiss and I bumped into Young Guru. After LA we flew to Oakland. Now I’m bringing you a dope mix, and this mix will never be forgotten, straight outta Oakland. Check it out..Love who you love. Stay positive. You just never know what life will bring you.
