Weekend
One reason my blog is so political is cause I just straight don't get out much anymore these days. Friday night was an exception.

Went to meet Jin at his record release party, at 330 Ritch, an 18-over crowd. Whoa! Kids these days! It was mad fun to see how far the Asian Am scene has come from the days we couldn't play Eric B. and Rakim without getting bottled, just straight Cover Girls, Expose, Jaya, Debbie Deb, New Order...yeah I'm fucking old.

Jin didn't have as much of a show as he had a house party, but he controls that mic and everyone left more than happy. Bro's got a future. He stayed late signing posters, trucker caps (!), and lots of young girls' body parts, and invaded the DJ booth to warble drunken renditions of "My Boo". Shouts to Wilson Meng at Exit and Jeff and Mikey from Climax Entertainment for making an elder feel right at home.

So then I get this announcement for the launch of Mouther.com, an urbnAZN-oriented webzine from Janet Tzou, the writer behind one of the best Roots stories ever written (in URB earlier this year) and jeweler to the stars. It's a great magazine, peep it.

And oh shit, but I'm in Hyphen Magazine this month, thanks to Todd Inoue, Charisse Domingo, and the wonderful Hyphen staff. Thank you, I am not worthy.

Fam's in town, teriyaki salmon and brown rice, it's like a yellow weekend.

Your link for Mouther is broken...

I'm only 24 and already I feel too old to be at some of these shows I go to

Thanks, it's fixed now. Yeah, it's great for hip-hop and bad for mfs like us, huh? It's funny because Jin got up and did a freestyle of LOTUG's "Chief Rocka" and fools just stared. This dude's like 22. AZN crowds--nice cars, cute girls, post-new school 101 playlists. Imagine Debbie Deb just fell out of the crates 5 years ago...

Did Jin do the "Girls Girls Girls"/Jay-Z a capella? "Girls girls girls girls/Asian girls galore..." The Yellow Fever Anthem!

Oh damn, you were there too huh? You know Noel's "Silent Morning" is still one of my favorite tracks of all time. I just can't find it in my stacks tho.
