RLW. . . , it’s a movement in the making. Far more than just a website. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get into the updates.
+ NEW MUSIC. We try to keep it moving over here man. Exclusives, tracks from the new hotness to be released and that has recently been released, with some occassional extras thrown in. This edition of the radio.blog takes a hard turn hip-hop wise. Young Buck’s, “4 Kings” . . . 8ball & MJG’s, “Turn Up the Bump” . . . Xzibit’s, “Concentrate” . . . Lupe’s, “American Terrorist,” just to name a few. Of course, we had Jay’s new single (“Show Me What You Got”) before all of the tv stations and most radio stations did. Along with another single, “Kingdom Come.” There’s another single floating around now called “Lost One’s,” but I might be stingy and just keep that one to myself. Don’t ask me why, hell I don’t know. LoL! New single off of Diddy’s album, featuring Keyshia Cole, some Luda, some Janet and some other stuff. . . hey didn’t want to keep it all hip-hop. So we doing it real big right now.
+ New additions in the FLOWetic section. That’s self-explanatory. Go check it out when u get a minute or two.
+ New questions answered in the LIKwid Libations (Q&A) section. We’re two questions away from 300. Ya’ll some nosey mofo’s son, lol. It’s all good though, cause I love it. Keep’em coming.
+ . . . and the Guestbook, it still works by the way. And there are a LOT of people who have yet to sign it, *ehem* don’t make me name name’s.
+ Currently in the beginning stages of discussing site (aesthetic) updates, with RLWebmistriss. So just stay tuned for that.
+ Well for those people who have been riding with me for 2+ years (before the site), you know that I have been trying to get my first official book of poetry published. I say first official, because I already have one done, but there’s only one copy (“When a Man Loves a Woman”). So we count that one, but we don’t at the same time. I’ve made a nice number of connections over the years and have people that have been waiting for a book from me for a while now. No bullshytting, there are a few in particular that have been pushing me for years to keep at it until it was done. And that’s big, because I have been known to let things slide from boredom. So nuff respect to my girl Nampombe, and Cicily. No matter when or for how long we may have lost contact over the YEARS, you two always made sure that I kept grinding to get this book done. Wow, I guess BlackPlanet was good for something after all. Nuff respect to the countless other people who have supported my vision as well in any and all capacities. With that said. . .
I MAY HAVE FOUND MY PUBLISHER
Fuck you very much PublishAmerica. It’s a print on-demand publisher. I’ve already spoken to a publishing consultant from the company, had my questions answered, talked about what it would cost me and yadda-yadda-yadda. So yeah it looks good right now. It’s not a done deal that this is who I will use. But I have a good feeling about this one. There’s one more company I want to check into further, before I make my decision, but I’m as close as I’ve ever been. Of course I retain all rights to the book, and it’s a flexible deal where I can discontinue service with them whenever I so choose. And the book comes with me. They don’t keep any rights to it at that point (that was the most eye-catching piece of news she offered me). So if I do go with this unnamed printer (don’t want to jinx anything), my book should be ready to go by April of ’07. Hell, I could have three done and ready to go by ’08. There’s four books after this one waiting in my head to be worked on. But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.
+ Novel. Yep, it’s finally bitten me. My experience working with Channel 69, a subsidiary of the one and only EIGHTH HOUSE, has led me to turn my on-line tv show, “Y.ou K.now W.ho I A.m” into a novel. I’m not even going to try to put a date on this here for completion. It’ll happen when it happens. But I have started working on it. For now, it’s untitled. Stay tuned for further updates.
+ Music. Another one of my babies is songwriting. I haven’t invested that much time into it, mainly for fun but I have penned a couple songs, one for a good friend of mines (TP, let’s go!!!). I’m not getting on that song Ja, it ain’t happening. I wrote it, you did what you did with it, switched up the melody and I’m sure it will sound crazy when you lay it down. But my job is done with it, lol.
But I was in the studio last week, laying a hook for one of my man’s, shout to da’homie Rrice. He came up with this insane track, let me hear it and I just started writing to it. He kinda caught me off guard when he asked me to get my Nate Dogg on, for the track. But I said fuck it, y not. So yeah we got up. . . I did that. And yeah, when my dude Clev drops his verse and it gets mixed and mastered. . . da’Kid will be on his first song. Go figure.
+ And there’s one other thing that I’m working on. But I’ve given you enuff info. for now. But uhhh, yeah I will be doing something with that as of the first of December (got confirmation for the first weekend of the month, so yeah).
I’M WORKING MAAAN. . . more like hustling. Gotta keep it moving ya’dig?
That’s basically it for the updates that are going on with the RLW movement for the time being. Just some quick shout-outs and tidbits. All thanks to the Almighty Most High, for getting my man Clev’s wife through her surgery safe and sound. I wish Lady Clev nothing short of a speedy and effective recovery. CONGRATULATIONS to my dude Lexarian. BellSouth is getting a PROfessional, they have no clue. Here’s to an “as long as it’s supposed to be,” productive relationship between and your new j-o-b. Happy coding Ladessa. I’m sure that site that you are working on for that company is gonna come out splendid. Why don’t you go ahead and break me off a $1.00 for some Doritos or something 😉
To anyone working on anything. . . I wish you the best of luck with whatever it is. Just keep grinding. You ain’t gotta be a Bad Boy, to say “can’t stop. . . won’t stop,” ya’dig? Let’s ALL make it happen.
Oh yeah. . . and A – T – L, prepare for the INVASION, T – minus 3 weeks and counting.
:: respect ::
– up next. . . maaan, just stay tuned. We have a busy day in “How’s It Flowing” land.
