It's Comin!!

Yo...just want to let everybody know, that J Lee's birthday is MARCH 23rd! Mark your calendars, set your clocks, sync your palm pilots whatever, 'cause it's going down. Now I'm not able to celebrate like I normally would because I'm in the middle of shooting my movie. BUT don't get it twisted, the wrap party for the film can count as my official birthday celebration.

Besides that, I know I haven't dropped any great knowledge in awhile, but that's only because I'm in the trenches making it happen. I promise when I get finished with this project, I'll have plenty of stories.

Until then, holla at your boy.

Poppin' my collar

"Ever since I can remember, I been poppin' my collar....poppin' my collar"
-Three Six Mafia

I don't know if you saw the Academy Awards, but Three Six Mafia won an Oscar. Now, that may not be a big deal to some of you, but it sure in the hell was for me. I was jumping up and down. And I am suuuuuuuuuuuuure some snotty nosed, uppity folks were sitting around mad as hell that they won. "OH MY GOSH! NEGROES WITH GOLD TEETH AND JEANS HAVE INVADED AMERICA" You know what's funny though, is that the hip hop culture is what runs America. From music to trendy styles, it all can be traced to what I call the 'hip hop' culture. Or as my mom says, the 'hibbidy hop mess' culture. As soon as I win an oscar, I'm going to go out and buy a car that is really expensive on gas...buy a watch, and take my boys out and waste the rest. And then, 3 months after that, I'll be old news. SIKE! Not the kid. Money begets money my friend. My motto for 2006. Sip, Tip, and Get Paid. Not necessarily in that order. My boy Brandon put me on to that.

I'm in the middle of a huge production. When I get back to LA, it's on and poppin' once again. Back to the scripts, back to the auditions, and back to the hustle. It doesn't stop. It's like Puff Diddy. It won't stop. It can't stop. Take that, take that.
Well anyway, I'm back on it. I'll write more later.

Hey There Buuuuuuuuudy"

"It's been a long time since I first got down, but I still keep makin' these funky sounds"
-Too Short

I know it's been a little while since my last post, but I've got good reason. I'm actually out of Los Angeles right now filming a movie. I don't want to talk too much about it. Once it's finished, edited, and distributed, then I'll fill in all the details.

It's weird, 'cause when you leave LA, you are able to put some things in perspective. You get so busy trying to 'make it', you forget about how to 'enjoy it'. You're so busy thinking about your next move, you don't know what your present move is. Something about LA brings out the hustle in people. Well...most people. I guess if you don't get on your hustle once you cross that California State line or deboard at LAX, you'll get swept under the table. Fast. And it's hundreds of cats that are willing to take your place. But I'm now able to sit back and not so much relax, but enjoy a little bit. I still have big dreams and goals (Goal = a dream with a deadline) but I don't want to rush.

I also finally got a new phone. I didn't want to get it 'cause EVERYBODY in LA had one, but the functionality of it is perfect for me. I can do all that e-mailing and texting and ish on the spot. And no, if you don't have my number already, you can't have it. I'm $25 million a movie people. =)
