Erez Safar

Just finished a freestyle cypher, en route to San Diego, started by my 3 year old who completely destroyed it. Best line was prob, “walk-in like a wockstar, walking like a rockstar, rocking like rockstar” then of course went on to describe other things that could be done whilst remaining rockstarish.

Phree

Today was dope, my homie @Phreeart hit me up to see if I wanted to roll by his new gallery. I had no idea he had one, but he does and it’s about to open! I walk in and it’s got this feel of a space that would have been in Love Jones had Love Jones taken place in Amsterdam. He’s been through a lot these past couple years. Someone I knew who once was respected in the fashion and art world and who scams a lot of people came… Continue Reading

clarity clouded the abstract // where my dreams lay // so I left them like woken bits // of a dream deferred // all the ones that keep me up // and the ones I can’t put down // face to the ground // h2the sound //

It’s crazy how much I miss my kids right now, they’re in NY with their mom visiting fam, and I couldn’t miss them more, it’s almost painful… It’s all those precious moments, that when not there, you feel it.. this one moment of #MoshDef throwing on a random hat and eating my Kind bar at @Target is just a regular second in life, but each one like it is my favorite…

Cruisin around Sundance snapping photos in the A5 with the new S1.

That entire thing was like Jauquin Phoenix ballet, #wow

nah to Supreme

My kid said everyone put Supreme stickers on their notebooks, I rolled my eyes just as Barbara Kruger would. He already plasters everything (skateboard, room etc) with my h2the stickers, so I said feel free to grab my old label stickers and punk out your notebook, so in order; MaxB (my homie who was on a few projects on my first label, Modular Moods, and the genius behind Beatbox TV), Bonhom (my band that gets all dem tv syncs), Juez (my college band that toured Moscow while we were in… Continue Reading

raising Oscar Wilde

Looks like I am raising Oscar Wilde… he literally just whispered in my ear, ‘consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative…’, as I tried to give him pizza 🙄

Echoing in cyclical time for thousands of years

When I first heard Erez Yechiel singing “Tikkun Klali” it changed my life. I was in Uman, the city where Rabbi Nachman(1772 – 1810, was the founder of the Breslov Hasidic dynasty) was buried. There are so many moments steeped in Jewish history, mysticism, culture and melody that when I hear them, I already know I’ve heard them echoing in cyclical time for thousands of years and it inspires me to create within the space of sound and blessings. The Tikkun album inspired my Shir HaShirim album with Brody and… Continue Reading

How To Help The Sudanese Right Now

If you’ve checked the news then you already heard about the atrocities being committed in Sudan right now, (including rape, murder, other acts of extreme violence, with a nationwide internet blackout). George Clooney just published an essay on Politico about what is going on including specific ways Congress can help. You can help as well, see the list below for how; Call or text Congress: Call 202-224-3121 and enter your zip code to be connected with your congressional leader’s office, and tell them you want them to support the Sudanese people. If you prefer to… Continue Reading

bbbqqqqing

Last night I BBQ’ed for dinner and told my kid, “you’re never gonna have better chicken then this”, as I stepped out to the grill all proud and he just goes, “I don’t want better chicken…” I then cracked up and we moved on to dessert… And just looking at all these tiny bites from these strawberries thrown back in the bunch, I realized my kid is like that annoying dude at the party who half drinks a bunch of beers, double dips chips, and touches each bun before picking… Continue Reading

I asked my kid jokingly, “what if you were born to someone else and you were walking with him and we passed each other in the street and you and I were like.. (i then made a face like OMG!).. and you turned to that dad asking, “hey, is it cool if I go with that guy?” I started laughing a little and he looks at me and goes, “that would be sad”, and sweetly says to me, “before I was born I looked at a million people and chose… Continue Reading
