Mickey Factz "Picked Up The Bass" @ Hiro Ballroom

Those who came through this past Tuesday, Jan 22nd at Hiro Ballroom for the Live Mechanics/Complex/United Tradeshow event were in for a treat when Mickey Factz stepped on the stage. For those who hadn't yet experienced him in the flesh; left convinced of his talent and star appeal. His set consisted of Nakim doing the Supra Stomp (School Daze flow), a remix intro of "I Like Your Supras," the hit off of Heaven's Fallout, "Talk Yo Ish," and two new singles, "Pick Up The Bass" and "Rockin N Rollin." Holding down the 1s and 2s on Mickey Factz' set was Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids. Other performers holding it down that night were Kid Cudi, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Game Rebellion. Mickey's performance footage will be coming soon, for now here are some pictures from that night's festivities and visit GAK City to view their coverage of the event.

Go Giants!!!

The Giants have actually been David throughout this post season. Let's see if they can find the Patriots' Achilles Heel next week. We'll be holding our slingshot in hopes for a New York champion.

We Shall Not Live To Die, But Die To Live

Today, we celebrate the life of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He should be an inspiration to us all. Besides doing a great deal for equality and race relations, how many people can actually die living their dream. For that you'll always be remembered.

"Now i could let these dream killers kill my self esteem or i could use my arrogance as the steam to power my dreams " - Last Call, Kanye West

"Ayebody wanna be King till shots ring, laying on their balcony with holes in their dreams" - Corporate Takeover freestyle, Jay-Z

Aftathoughts Vol. 1

Some may consider this blasphemy but sticks and stones won't break my bones, so cast away...This guy Afta-1 may be the new age Dilla. Reincarnated astral soundwaves (aka the music a shooting star would create, as it soars through the sky), boom-bap ciphers between heavenly gods, and within their lies the belief, the emotion, the metaphysics of the soul. Basically some deep shit to zone out too without having to get 'lifted,' nah mean. His newly released Aftathoughts Vol. 1 is an instrumental album, so intelligently done and surreal that it's cruising music for 2050 A.D...while in your spacecraft. Go now and support astronomically good music, before it becomes a sanctioned privilege.

It's a New Year...Go Get Tested

So I'm on my myspace page, and I see my my dude Fausto changed his default pic. It looked like some sort of legal document, so I automatically assumed it was his Articles of Incorporation because if any of you know Fausto he discovers a new way to stunt every week. Anyhow, I click on the image and come to find out he posted the documentation to his AIDS/HIV results. Some of you may be shocked by this, but myself I found it inspiring. It's a new year and before prosperity and fame can result, your health must be in order. I strongly recommend out of love for yourself that everyone makes it a duty of theirs to go get tested. When you know you're healthy, you're that much closer to success and happiness, that's what you call La Vie.

P.S. You can't cheat this test. Practicing safe sex is the key to passing. So don't forget to wrap it up.

I found out today the the Bronx is the number one most infected Boro out of Queens - Manhattan and Brooklyn, in that same order bronx got the most HIV / AIDS and herpes etc etc then Queens then Manhattan then Brooklyn..

Please people lets protect our self for us and the safety of others and our families that love us.

iIdid it to show people if i can do it, so can you!
i was nervous but im glad i went. im negative of all type of infections such as
herpes - Gonorrhea - Chlamydia - Syphilis.. etc plus im HIV - AIDS NEGATIVE

this is a private matter but i made it public for PEOPLE to see that it only takes 30mins to get your results and you can help protect the world... im doing this to show the world we all as humans & have a responsibly to protect the Earth and the people in it!

I hope no one gets offended by this message
and thank you for reading this if i reached one person then i did a good job.

If any one have any question about any of this please don't hesitate to ask me.. i can provide places to get a check up for free if needed.
