I'm from RichmondHill, Queens. When I landed from Japan last month I took a spin around the old hood on the way back into the city. A lot has changed but its still the same old. Bob's SneakerCorner is still there, I can still remember begging my mother to get me a pair of Revolutions and in return I would get a perfect report card. Tommy's Pizzeria had the best sicilian. It's not called a square slice nerds. And I finally had to show people what Lefferts and Liberty is...so many times people ask. Where you from? I always respond "Lefferts, last stop on the A". People will always scratch their heads. And last the house I grew up in. The stoop says it all...fuck I miss hanging out on the stoop and talking shit all day...
Being raised a Catholic(not really a practicing one unless my life is in danger) we have our own right of passage joints. The first one is Communion. My little body guard aka Max aka Maxamilli asked for me to be his godfather for this ceremony. What an I gonna say no? Stoops...congrats little man.

With the lack of good rap music coming out of NY I'm having a bit of nostalgia for the day's of when Bad Boy reigned supreme on the radio. I was never a big fan in the early 90's but these songs will always get me hyped where ever I am on the globe. Ladies and germs I bring you my top three Bad Boy moments. Please take into mind before I get all the emails "Where is Juicy and Hypnotized?". Fall back..thats too easy.
1) Flava In Ya Ear Remix solidified Bad Boy as a label not to be fucked with. This officially announced the "Big Mack" campaign.
2) Woah was Black Rob single handedly saving the label in '96 with Biggie gone.
3) Lets Get It was a banger in 2001 that brought back Bad Boy for a hot minute but introduced The Harlem Shake and G Dep's weird ass flow. It worked...
