Here’s some footage of my quick performance at the "Road to Resistance" show/solidarity night in Chicago.

I was hella nervous b/c I finished writing it on the plane and didn’t even have it memorized, but I took a risk and it still turned out okay, even though I forgot one line and improvised a hook on the spot. Good times!

Shout out to Cinemilitancy Films for posting it!

Tagged posts…

So just for the hell of it, I decided to browse through all the posts tagged with “revision” (my rap/DJ name). I wasn’t really expecting to find anything about me personally, but it still would’ve been a nice little ego boost (hey, I’m just being honest. haha). It turns out that most of the posts were from students, mainly high schoolers(?), complaining about school and all the revisions their teachers made them do. Go figure…

Ay yo…that be me. I do take lots of notes, but I think I might actually be on Facebook in this picture. lol.

I just spent the last few hours on the phone catching up with one of my homegirls who moved away about a year ago. We don’t talk that often, but when we do it reminds me that we have a good, solid friendship. Then it got me thinking of relationships/friendships that have dwindled away to the point that we’re now mere acquaintances. Regardless if it’s platonic or romantic, a long lasting bond requires a reciprocal amount of energy and time invested, or as Common put it, “If relationship is effort, I will match your work.” Whether it’s an unresolved conflict or two people just growing apart, I think this is something we can all relate to.

So here you go, folks…I present you with a song I recorded back in ‘07 dealing with this very topic. I was a little hesitant in sharing it because I don’t like my delivery back then (although it shows how I’ve grown from then ‘til now), but I can still appreciate the lyrics. This is one of my more personal songs, especially the 3rd verse…but that’s a whole new blog/story in itself.

If you want a free download of this song, send me a message in my Ask Box or at: facebook.com/committeemusic

Check out this interview with The Committee after they performed at the 20th annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture (FPAC) this past weekend.  The group features two of our very own Anakbayan LA members, Eric and Romeo.

I <3 The Committee!!  So happy for this reunion and excited to hear some new jams from them!  Woop woop!  

And AB represent! :)

Here’s an interview my group did on Saturday. We didn’t have one at the time, but you can now check out The Committee’s Facebook page.

Check out the homies from FlowEthics performing an acoustic version of Reach, which is on my Relocation Mixtape. This is pretty fresh. I think we might need to hit the studio and record an acoustic remix!

I don’t really like hyping up my own songs that much, but this is one of my absolute favorites (which is also the most well received…at least within my circle of friends). I’ll never stray from the conscious/political topics, but it’s good to switch it up and do the fun stuff too. Everything is true, with the exception of the “AT&T/calling after 9pm” line (thanks to a ton of rollover minutes, I don’t have to worry about exceeding my limit anymore. haha).

You can download it for FREE HERE!!

(INTRO - Talking):
Look, I’m not that smooth, Don Juan, casanova type. I mean, I’m only being honest. In fact, I’m the opposite. I’m kind of…

(HOOK):
Nerdy, nerdy…I’m so nerdy girl (yeah)
Nerdy, nerdy…I’m so nerdy girl (yeah)
Nerdy…nerday…I’m so nerdy girl (yeah)
Nerdy, nerdy…I’m so nerdy girl (yeah)

(VERSE ONE):
So check it out, lemme lay it on the line
See, I’m the type of dude who don’t be spittin’ corny lines
And even if I wanted to I wouldn’t know one
Knowing me, I’d try to say and would probably mess it up

Cuz see…I’m kinda nerdy and I don’t see the use
Of tryna act smooth in a VIP booth
I’ma get there kinda early to save a couple bucks
Get my hand stamped, back to the car to catch a buzz

Nah I’m not cheap but I’m ballin’ on a budget
And I’m normally not the type to be going out clubbing
I’m pretty low key on that chill kind of status
A humble attitude, you ain’t gonna see me bragging

About a condo on the beach or a fancy whip I drive
So don’t ask me for a drink, I might have to say goodbye
Or better yet some water with a little bit of ice
And if you laugh and stick around then you just might be my type, cuz I’m…

(HOOK)

(VERSE TWO):
Now you’re probably not used to this different approach
Thinking “whatchu talkin’ bout?” like Diff’rent Strokes
I’m not rich like Mr. Drummond, I don’t even come close
But I’m hoping I can still get the number to your phone

I ain’t into playing games like “how long should I wait?”
How bout this, I’ll hit you up in like one or two days
But it might be after 9, I’m close to exceeding my limit
Unless you got AT&T, free mobile to mobile minutes

But the thing is…I really hate that first call
Cuz I get a little nervous and I stumble and I fall
Fumbling my words and start st-st-stuttering
Butterflies in my stomach hovering and fluttering

Muttering to myself “man, I’m such an idiot”
Wondering if I’ll ever be able to get rid of this
Nervousness I’m hoping you might find a little cute
But the truth is that I’m like this cuz I’m kinda feelin’ you

(HOOK)

(VERSE THREE):
No I won’t try to impress you with a fancy restaurant
But we can get some grub at a local mom & pop
Like tacos de asada with some bomb enchiladas
Wash it down with some horchata, go kick it at mi casa

Maybe watch some DVDs like the series Planet Earth
Girl, I wasn’t lying when I said I was a nerd
I’m sort of a goof but I can probably make you laugh
Cuz I’m not afraid to make myself look like an ass

And I still wanna earn some major points in your book
But if I do it then I’m gonna give you a genuine look
Leave a lasting impression like songs with a catchy hook
All I need is a chance, oh yeah…I also clean and cook

(OUTRO - Talking):
And there you have it. You know I figure I might as well be up front, than put up a front. You know what I’m saying?
