Daniel Cloud Campos in my eyes was always underrated. He always had this style about him a Rebel can recognize and see right away. A true Brickhead like myself can see ill talent especially when it comes to natural ability and floor work. I saw his potential in person at numerous jams. His hard work and talent is paying off in the end. Skills, skills, skills, that's what goes on a blog like Shon Roka's. Here is a whole helping of what some of you have been sleeping on!
