the accessory.

radiation in my toes flowing up to the veins in my neck, the thought of us being one is something i try hard to forget. thirty days but countless nights, yeah your presence was there. Daily im trying to rationalize to make everything seem clear. Too long had come and gone but the routine remained. Consistency and the passion was the only thing that kept me sane. Confident is just a front that makes us think we feel good. In reality we all have insecurities but keep them muted as we should. Man, lets be real...theres nothing 'there'. You bringing our past to the presence is something i fear. Just because it worked once doesnt guarantee its place. Everybody is different despite what they may say. I love the love that loves to love...its tighter than than his hands during an intense back rub. the time is now eventhough its never ending. No matter what you're going through I cant help this feeling. One day well enter a world where our desires outweigh our needs but until then i have to keep following my dreams.

inspired by taylor.


originality consists in trying to be like everybody else -- and failing.

i once heard that originality is conclusively "undetected plagiarism." Yeah, in some cases that might be true but for some people that idea is far fetched. // them basik boys.

Its weird writing this because it truly hits home. Ive had the chance to watch these boys grow into men and take their business with them. I sat back as a spectator as they took an idea and turned it into a movement.

If you dont know already (which im sure you do) I am talking about Basik Art Clothing. A company established in October of 2002 by 2 weird ass young men by the names of Picasso and Shoota Mac-Mane. lol j.k they're alright.

Like erykah I could go on and on but ima try & keep it short. I have a lot of followers who dont live in Texas, so my purposes are strictly informative. (def not a bsk bop)

Basik Art Clothing is a clothing line whose continuity and success is based on originality. "When art duplicates into fashion--Basik Art Originals."

What can i say man...they put on for the city of H-town. After providing streetwear for countless artists, celebs, and not to mention 90% of Houston's urban population....Basik Art has turned a trend into an accepted style.

Yeah, with anything innovative hatred follows but the $$ speaks for itself (or so it should). With basik art no two shirts are alike. After putting on a whole gang of artists, the possibilities are endless. I dont know them all but one thing I can say about the ones I do know: its not a game.

If I can find my first BSK shirt ill post the pic up...just to show how much they have evolved. It had a screen print of Destiny's Child wearing military style clothing, next to a quote from one of their songs. oh yeah lets not forget about the target looking circles. Lol that was clearly 2004.

But yeah, to sum it up Basik Art is a prime example of HOW we should attempt to reach our dreams. Stay true to yourself and own up to the principles behind the idea of originality. Success is deemed to follow.

its been a minute but seems like forever. the time is near man. patience is a virtue which ultimately leads to all levels of ethical excellence.

If you have been following my blog this should be nothing short of familiar to you. KIRKO BANGZ man. not quite the agitator like our young fellow kurt cobain but the excitement is there. Now, maybe IM the one who's trippin (which i HIGHLY doubt) but yall have got to be sleepin on this man.

Verses that demand the upmost respect while maintaing loyalty to popular demand + Spontaneous exclusives of lyrical explosion = whew.

Now trust me when I say I wouldnt bother to do this if I didnt 'feel' him. Not necesarily because he's my friend but truth be told he is the future. "i aint tryna be the greatest. these niggas in the game, they great, but most of these niggas just aint the latest"

Here is a KB freestyle that I love.

I like this one because it just reflects reality from beginning to end.
