For this one, im taking on a different approach.

A comp is a comp but I miss heading to a jam, getting to know people and making hella friends and just be free with it.

Tomorrow, Im turning 27 years old, (Holy Shit BTW). can’t stop, wont stop new perspectives in my mind. Expansions,  according to Lonnie Liston Smith.

And all is well. Too much going on but at the end of the day, they’re really not.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me grow. Mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually. That’s all I ask for, that’s all I  need. #expansions

BEA’S Guam Trip 2014

September 16, 2014

I love Guam!

Freestyland last August was the bomb! I’ve been there 2 years ago but this trip though was different. Definitely connected more with the island and the people on a whole new other level. I want to thank KAF, Rhandee, all the pars for the hospitality and most especially to my hosts, Earlroc and Diane.

So much stuff I learned about myself, this world and my path. Its crazy! Definitely was present in the moment. Only downside though is that I don’t have clips of the crazy moments since I was too busy experiencing them, which truly is the point (catch 22) .

But yeah it was awesome! Can’t wait for more stuff like this in the future! s/o to Bangroc for the opening vid

“The Revolution will not be Televised… Its gonna be online.”

 

 

 

Rooted Tv is a little project I’ve been mulling over for years. But coming from my recent trip from the Bay Area where I learned so much about life in general, I thought it was about time for me to have enough balls to finally pursue delving into my own roots.

 

I’ve been breaking for more than a decade now and I’ve seen so much of the good, the bad & the ugly side in this strug life. It’s alright though because I’ve realised that its all because of the search for KOS, the Knowledge of  Self.  And to know yourself is to know YOUR roots.

 

And that’s what RootedTv plans to offer.

 

I don’t really like to talk much online especially, but this is a leap of faith I need to take. I’ve come to know the importance of knowing your ancestors in this culture & their story deserves to be known. The why’s, how’s and oh shiiiiiiit moments if you know what I mean. And knowing them helps each one in the same movement become more familiarised with their selves. (A  win win situation right there.)

 

And for this culture to be moving forward, we have to be in the know. We are all students to this game, and everyday is a good day to learn.

 

So stay ROOTED.
