In case you didn't make it, I got you -- Agenda Show NYC, January 2014 featuring my girl Alexandra Estevez, TJ Mizell (Jam Master Jay's son), and Mike Carter (VP of Sales & Marketing for Agenda).
Thank you to those who made their cameos.

Was a blessing to be at Agenda Emerge really. Learned a good deal that I'm still sorting through since last Thursday. Below a few shots from the conference, minus Marc Ecko 'cause he was the only one sitting down. With a table. For his glass of cognac. Comedy.
Might load some video from the conference -- still debating...

Last Thursday along with my friend Dro from Miami, attended the AGENDA Emerge conference, featuring Marc Ecko, Bobby Hundreds, Jeff Staple, and Johnny Cupcakes. Here are a few takeaways I got upon entering the building at NYU: Emerge notebook, Johnny Cupcake mint, pin, book, and more, as well as some pens from The Hundreds.
First person to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org gets what you see. Subject should be about the giveaway, duh!
FYI: Don't stop emailing till I announce a winner here.
Update: Thanks for reading, Jerome!
You don't see my boy Dee of Riots & Roses much, just like you don't see me much.
We silently kill, and pay bills.

Getting an early start for the new year, Jae Hall and his City Sliq family get right to it by releasing their high anticipated "NY Inspired" visual. Filmed and shot in New York City, he takes you on a lyrical guide through what inspires him in our city. Something tells me this is much more than a video, maybe more like a trailer to his plight.
We're so New York inspired!

UFO Fev is constantly serving supper to supporters -- thanks for working, my boy. I was actually in the studio when he was laying this verse, listening to him dance like the stars on this beat. His new project Around My Way is due out soon, look for it here when it's released!

I'm not even going to lie, but I'm about 3 months late on sharing this, but it's ABELLA ANDERSON in a pair of 'Gamma' 11's -- again, Abella Anderson in a pair of 'Gamma' 11's, so I got a late-pass. Abella has a thing for Jordan's and we got a thing for both, so shout out to my guy Dro from The305.com for reminding me about his shoot with her!
Below is a motion visual...

"Today we bring to you more than 16 bars on this "New Amsterdam" cut featuring Maffew Ragazino Sr. While "Around My Way" gets mastered I plan on consistently jacking for beats & providing 16's."
UFO Fev is getting ready for take off on his next project titled "Around My Way" and working close is Elemnt, who's credited for working with artists such as Vado, Troy Ave, Al-Doe, and the legendary Grand Puba. Elemnt is pretty dope, he had some really good records on Al-Doe's "Nose Candy" (Honor Til Death, Larry Davis, Dimelo) that knocked on my iPod for a while.
I was invited to the studio by Fev & The High Enterprise team to get some behind the scenes footage. The location was Brewery Recording Studio and it's one of the dopest studios I've ever been to, and I've been to Stadium Red, Daddy's House, Roc The Mic, Platinum, and Quad -- Brewery honestly might be doper than them all. Respect to Andrew Krivonos (founder/recording/mixing) & his staff for having me, I hope to be back soon.
Shouts to The High, Red Inf, Tigg, Brook and Cloudkicka Piff. Video coming soon...
