What you do it fo? This is the question Steph Simon has been asking himself as the time to the premiere of his Moviementary (movie documentary) “Live From the Tisdale” draws closer. A question that the movie tries to give insight into just how difficult an answer this is. The moviementary centers around Steph Simon’s live performance titled “Live From the Tisdale” which you can find my review here. Also accompaning Steph is his band The Rowlands, which the name of the band is a story within itself that is discussed a little in the moviementary.
But also depicted is the struggle that Steph Simon has had between doing something that he loves and doing what he has to do to provide, which is are topics that have been heard throughout his catalog and the album "Live From the Tisdale" as well. For instance on his track ‘Quarterbacking’ from his "Out to Eat" mixtape Steph touches on the subject of having the whole city on his back win, lose, or draw. And for Steph being seemingly the face of the franchise for Tulsa has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But this isn’t the only time Steph Simon has touched on this battle between greatness and providing as seen on the "Live From the Tisdale" album on tracks like ‘Longevity’, ‘D1 Dreams’, 'We On', and of course the original title track ‘Visions’ where he makes it clear he wants to be mentioned in the conversation of greatness. You know, barbershop debatin. So as the trailer plays and Buddy Rod asks Steph the question “Who is Steph Simon?” It's clear from the expression on his face that this that answer is going to take longer than the 1 minute trailer and more than one drink. Go check out his moviementary and see how he has answers this question.

But basically from me I just recognized myself as a king of myself, a king of my decisions, the king of my being....
We are all born with intuition, a feeling, a knowing. But many of us far too often don't act on this because of the fear of not knowing. But for King Spencer it's this fear that helps to fuel his decisions and it's his intuition that helps to steer them.

The story and the origin of the Otsutsuki Brothers is unknown which leaves many questions unanswered. Are they apart of a secret society? Do they speak Japanese? No body exactly knows these answers yet, but what we do know is Japanese or not everybody wants "Fast Cars". And the "Otsutsuki Brothers" are no exception. Their single "Fast Cars" is better than any Fast And Furious sequel and it's filled with just as much action.

Google Image Search "Tulsa Rappers" and this is what you'll get. And learkin in somebody's comments is an argument I've heard too much. ALL TULSA RAPPERS SOUND THE SAME. This has been an age old argument from the beginning of MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram just search for it. And the sad part is that most of these people that say this are from Tulsa. HOW SWAY? How? But nobody talks about the job these people are doing. Nobody comes to to their job and say "You answer the phone like every other call center rep", or "You take care of old people like every other hospice worker/nurse". OK, Enough of the ranting. But I challenge you to give me an opportunity to explain my why this is a common fallacy. Cause you gone learn today:
Mixtapes don't sell... connections do. Go to any corner store or even any hip-hop bar and your guaranteed to get at least one person asking you to buy their mixtape. I'm not knocking their hustle, it takes balls to ask a stranger to buy something, and if your going into the salesperson and sales is your profession than it's a good way to gain experience. But if your profession is hip-hop than your hustle should be selling connection and not selling your mixtape.
I am guilty. But before you judge let me explain of what. I am guilty of making things 'convoluted'. See I just did it again. I have at times used these complex big words in an effort to one-up Shakespeare himself. But then I realized something. I realized that at the end of the day who cares if you can use these crazy big words or not. What's the point of using fancy big words if nobody understands you? What's the point if nobody gets your point?

Everyone hates going to the grocery store. There’s long lines. There’s slow checkers. And it’s always packed on the 1st and the 15th. But 24k Astall with some help from his friend David Puffin turn a trip to the grocery store into a non-stop turn-up in their video Caillou. That’s right Caillou not some vegetable you’ll find in the produce aisle. Caillou (pronounced KY-YOO), is a cartoon character that has crazy adventures, so it's only right that 24k Astall and David Puffin have an adventure of their own.
