Most of you who are closer to me, especially in regard to my brand Kings Without Crowns know that I often didn't have the "best" words when it came to Mex One. Actually, if you really wanted to get a reaction out of me, all you had to do was ask "how do you feel about MexOne / Biggest&Baddest?" and you already KNEW you just lit dynamite inside of me... my response was guaranteed to be explosive.

In my bboy stained mind, I'm a natural battler in everything that I do, wether it be dance or my business. Because of this, I always saw MEX as my main competition, my adversary, and up til now, my all time greatest opponent. It's not hard to imagine why, the worldwide community that he built around himself and vision truly did make him the "Biggest & Baddest" competition in my path.

It was because of the size, the reach, the consistency of his empire that I'd get up for work a lot of times and ask myself "How am I gonna catch up? How am I gonna change the game? How am I gonna stay ahead of MEX?" It was trying to keep up with his extraordinary pace that allowed me the drive to bring my company to the level it is now. Without the giant steps of his career, I'm not so sure I'd have ever seen such big strides in my own.

I'm grateful to have crossed paths with you in my journey, bro. A big part of the person I am today is because of the mark you were already making before me. It's been amazing chasing you and battling it out with you in business since the very beginning.

Thank you for everything, David, I'll never forget you.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Not exactly sure how I ended up on this road, but can't be more proud to be a part of such a distinct group on animals. 

Was pretty much blacked out all fucking weekend, but gotta extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support mine and my brothers big day at the Knuckleheads 20th Anniversary. 

Getting my life together today, gimme a day or so to get back in the swing of things, LOL.

Post is late as hell, but wanted to give a BIG ass shout to the people at Block 1750 who put together BLOCK PARTY last weekend in Boulder, CO.

You guys have really cultivated a "one of a kind" scene around this event and it's obvious it's a smash. BLOCK PARTY was a GREAT time and can't thank you all enough for the hospitality. See you next year!

Mad love to my Dutch fam The Ruggeds for flying in and swooping the big win! Always a good time getting dirty with you jerks, LOL.



Dear Frankie, if you're playing this weekend, shoot me a message. I'll even settle for band practice, I'll bring the beer! LMAO. In LA for a few days starting TOMORROW and def gonna need to get my live music fix!
