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.
