Alot has been going on ...in the span of only 2 months give or take I have a bunch of new paintings/Drawings for sale as well as alot of new beautiful memories from dancing at events , emceeing at union square in NYC , meeting new people and trying new things ...

This week did an interview with Yellow Benjy of the Ghetto Brothers for a Swizz Magazine.. I was humbled and honored to represent my Bronx generation ..as soon as it is published I will post article here (for info on Ghetto Brothers please visit Ghettobrothersnyc.com or watch the film Flying Cut Sleeves its a great watch)

here is a link above to more pics from The Rickford Institute All Star Classic Group Exhibition @ The Milk Studios ( Im in Photo 28 )


I have a few things I am organizing coming up so here is the rundown:

First me and my new friend/fellow emcee Embryiotik
last friday hosted a Freestyle cypher at union square it was insane had the most random , lyrical cypher ..were going to do another cypher at Union Square this upcoming Friday thats December 30th 8 pm - till - open to anyone.. please bring your friends , bring your radios or bring a beatboxer..bring lyrical skill..and bring a friendly vibe...WE WANT TO HAVE CYPHERS NON STOP ALL YEAR ...LOCATIONS DUE TO CHANGE IF IT GETS TOO COLD..WE MIGHT DO A CYPHER IN A SUBWAY STATION HAHA..KEEP IT RAW ...why so late? well people work and stuff... if I get alot of request to host cyphers earlier then I will personally be there early to rock with anyone who wants...

JANUARY 7th TBB PRESENTS : ( first TBB event I organized..many more to come...)
1- 2:30 emcee/beatbox cypher
2:30 - 4 pm Open Discussion
for this event please dont come with a negative vibe or sailor mouth will be youth in attendance this is an event of UNITY and FAMILY because HIP HOP IS COMMUNITY...



This below is a flyer for the next Kids Of Ny Jam it is the first jam series I was introduced to back in 2008..since then I have helped the organizer Anthony Colon bring the Graffiti element more into the jams and have been appointed The Art director...so this is open to anyone who is a Bboy or Bgirl , beatboxer ,deejay , emcee, even if your a Graff writer bring a blackbook or sketchbook and some markers...This is purely organized by Anthony Colon and a few friends who care and avidly support like myself , KEV SKI ,King Uprock etc ..if you would love to help with future events please contact him ...im sure he would accept any help he can receive from food like chips/ hotdogs to feed the kids - help setting up - help getting bigger .better , diverse venues across different communities in NYC...Anthony Colon is the DJ for the event and also a Martial Arts Instructor and teaches youth if you may be interested in hiring him or something.... MOST IMPORTANTLY IF YOU KNOW KIDS WHO WANT TO LEARN ABOUT REAL HIP HOP BRING THEM OUT TO THIS IT IS WORTH THE TRIP ...

for all graffiti writers who want to come support please dont tag up the location because then we cant do positive things like this for the youth in NYC plus its a sad fact that the Authorities love to see communities and people that cant come together for anything because it puts dinner on their tables they would rather than us organize Hip Hop events to revel in watching our people facilitate Gang riots....please support and invite any photographers/ Journalist or press you may know THIS IS A VERY POSITIVE THING FOR THE COMMUNITY AND NEEDS MORE AWARENESS...



Shoutouts to FRC - TBB - WOTS CREW - LMG - THE GHETTO BROTHERS ..on and on...


peace...heres a classic you can enjoy...expand your horizons...

OCCUPY HIP HOP WITH CHIEF69.....


ART by CHIEF69 - 2011


Martinez photography - 2011

words cant begin to describe my life..the HIP HOP scene and global scene across the world at the moment since my last post , but I must describe some stuff haha...

This past month of November I won 1st place in the Graffiti blackbook battle at the Zulu Nation Anniversary pic below is from that of myself the 2nd place winner and 2 of the judges NIC ONE and JAMES TOP...





Ive noticed alot of social change in the globe and on a personal level I have even to an extent been leaning to the talk of the times so to say...Ive been doing alot of social artwork...and in my music have started touching these taboo topics...going on the forefront of the revolutionary cause and HEAD CLASHING with a system we are all under...aside from that I took November to pay my respect to the Native Tribes that were killed by the European disease and greed when he first encountered the new world ..many people dont know but should acknowledge the fact that thanksgiving was originally a feast celebrating the genocide of the Native people of America , but given that knowledge we should be more thankful for our family and life with each new day because with all of our faults it can easily become drastically worse in an instant so be grateful and learn from human history dont lie and sugarcoat the history teach the true information to your community...

any way..below are a few videos from my most recent performances and art exhibitions featuring my work...



I had a great time and cool impromptu performance at KF HOX album release party..they spelled my name wrong but this is a video of the later half of my performance including a freestyle..nothing fancy or anything ..

WERE NEVER FAKIN THE FUNK..Id like to announce 1 new member E knox who is in this photo and DOK who is a dope beatboxer not in the photo but has many dope videos on youtube so search him up and subscribe to his channel




in other news..... http://www.headklash.com/
I recently came across a dope clothing line representing Hip HOp and I will in the future like to show you all more clothing lines , etc that are true...so check it out below I posted a short Bio and some pics of the clothing line HEADKLASH..

HEADKLASH was created by Cuebec Dillon, also known as ill Q Nitty from the infamous rap group THE CUTTHROATS. The group had one of the most memorable songs titled “STOP LOOKING AT ME” featuring the late Guru from Gangstarr on the classic, platinum selling Menace II Society movie soundtrack. Excluding all of the trials and tribulations, where a book would be in order leading up to the birth of HEADKLASH, a frame of time that ultimately included the tragic and untimely death of one of the members of the group. The core roots of the HEADKLASH movement were planted back in 2003 with the release of the self-titled song HEADKLASH, when Cue (short for Cuebec) was a managing Partner of the now defunct independent Wizzad Entertainment. Along with Cue, the track featured four other local artists, who were friends from other neighborhoods in queens and visiting family who lived in other countries. Each individual possessing a different style, such as chanting and deejaying which is a form of singing and rapping in the west-indies. The track had an infinite universal sound and message. The message is clear that we all share the same values and aspirations regardless where you’re from.
Today Cue has kept the movement alive based on the same philosophies it was nurtured, heads coming together through hip hop and making strides in life no matter what obstacles may be in the way. HEADKLASH is an inspirational brand that represents ones journey as they take on the world on a daily basis.” The HEADKLASH apparel line was inevitable” according to Cue. It was influenced by hip hop on a whole and the many other street brands on the market that are inspired by hip hop culture. Other influences go back to the middle to late 80’s and early 90’s where you saw fresh name sweatshirts and nylon jackets, to the rugged army Fatigues, Timberland boots and Carhart Jackets that reflect the rugged streets.
Headklash! Synonymous with taking life head on, having fortitude and united strength has recently launched a website and released a line of logo tees and accessories. A sports line is in the works as well.
While remaining true to the hip hop era it was raised in and representing the relentless and confident mentality of its current representatives, Headklash is a brand you won’t be able to help but notice!

and lastly...
To all of my friends in the NYC area JANUARY 7th I along with THE BRONX BOYS am organizing and hosting a complete underground TRUE HIP HOP cypher of EMCEES and BEATBOXERS but I ASK ALL THE BBOYS , EMCEES , BEATBOXERS , DEEJAYS , GRAFF WRITERS WHO KNOW ME to come out TO THE SOUTH BRONX DONT BE AFRIAD ....WE NEED TO BUILD AND UNITE TO FIGHT THE SYSTEM THAT IS NOT LETTING US WORK TOGETHER AND SHINE TOGETHER RESPECTIVELY....IT TAKES ALL OF US TO MAKE A TRUE CHANGE...
