Every day is a FRIDAY to me...#BHZLife
Its Friday! Another hot ass day in the C-H-I...Putting in work as usual so I can continue to live my reality a little better and leave something for my children. Anyhow, hitting up a all new Friday Night at Keepers Pub with my Coast 2 Coast Member DeeJay J-Master...then off to close out the night at Tiger O' Stylies in Berwyn for "The Streets Are Watching" brought to you by "Too Damn Much Ent." That just reminded me about my first party crew "2DH" (2 Damn Hype) Classic shit. Anyhow, the schedule is set this weekend to make more history with the peeps who hold down this rare culture. The flyer is a few blogs back if you need more details... On that note, here is something I'm a play tonight in the closer set...
