Little P loves LA.
He loves Venice Beach.
He can tell you what sunset blvd looks like.
Tells me all the time how he's gonna live there when he grows up.
I mean he describes landmarks that only someone who's been to LA would know about.
There's only one thing....
Little P has never been to LA.
One day I asked him how the hell he knew about Los Angeles like that. He looked at me like I was a fool and was like "video games and youtube Al!"
I felt extremely old.
Its kinda crazy how a kid can recognize a place they've never been to or seen before from a video game, in real life.
Like the actual place was built after the game.
Which brings me to the question
Does art imitate life or is it the other way around?
I remember hanging out with my friend Chinky's son Nutty one time, driving in the car, and Mr. Cee was on the radio with the old-school-at-noon thing. EPMD's Get The Bozack comes on, and Nutty starts bugging, "ohshit yo, they just took DMX's beat like that? Thats messed up!"
Either way I was pretty amazed that T'shaka knew soo much about the wessssyde.
Lil P is a skater, and he's dead serious about his skateboarding.
The boy is focused. (hmm i wonder where he gets that from)
I didn't believe him at first, I figured it was another phase, but he came thru with his skateboard one day and was busting kickflips and ollie manuals like it was nothing.
So, when he caught wind that I was about to be going to LA and then Las Vegas to dj a party for my homies Crooks and Castles, he put his bid in! (Lil P knows Uncle ALC is easy to pushover)
Funny 'cause I remember when I was his age , all I wanted to do was move to New York.
Open off of breakdancing, grafitti on trains, and rap music.
So moms took me on a trip one time.
I remember telling my mom, " can we go to queens?". All I knew was that it was the place Run DMC rapped about all the time.
I figured why not?
A couple travel agent manuevers and the next thing you know, Lil P was on his way to the airport, skateboard in hand, on his way to LA, ready to tear it up!
Stay tuned. Bout to post up some footage of me and Lil P TEARING UP the streets of VENICE on our skateboards.
Oh , you didnt know i was nice??????
On another note, today is my brother's birthday. Happy birthday Boy Wonder!
