2010 was a good year… wonder whats coming up next.

Ahh, viagra the 1st “work day” of the New Year. Time is flying already.

Every january, purchase I ponder what gonna happen in the up coming year, and although I do have ideas , I never really have a laid out blueprint.

Whats that saying… If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

Last year around this time, for all I knew , I was gonna be doing pretty much just one thing – running around the world backing up Mr. Carter on the 1’s and 2’s… and at the time, shoot – what could have come close to topping that??

There but for the grace of god go I, and I just went with the flow -even if it meant jumping off of bridges…

LITERALLY.

So there I was, beginning 2010. I went from having the “dream job” of DJing for Jay-z, to being in an viral video with Daft Punk, Obi wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Snoop Dogg, Chewbacca and David Beckham (to name a few) seemingly “overnight”…

Instead of playing the background , coming off the bench, I spent most of my 2010 on the road solo – thanks in a large part to my manager Sky Gellatly and my booking agency ONE TWENTY TWO

From Djing posh openings with beautiful lingerie models, to DJing for the World Cup in South Africa, 2010 couldn’t have been more eventful.

Berlin, Frankfurt, Angola, Utah, Zurich Switzerland… all spots that I can add to the list of places I got to visit because I play records.

And while I was building the Neil Armstrong fanbase, I was still reaping the after-effects of working with Mr. Carter for two years… appearing in videos and replays of the concerts that I did as one of the Roc boys, without actually having to be on tour… It was like being in two places at once.

The Fanbase continued to grow organically throughout the year, with suprise interviews and collaborations, and of course, my relationship with Adidas becoming official

I could go on and on… but I think its clear already – at least to me, that 2010 even greater the 2009 for the Neil Armstrong brand.

AND I OWE THAT LARGELY TO Y’ALL, my fans, my friends my family… even my critics and haters.

So what about 2011?? I dunno… I think I’m gonna keep living, DEFINITELY MAKE MORE MIXTAPES which I’ve BEEN LACKING ON. The only thing I wanna do, is make this year more eventful then2010. So first…I guess I should get out of bed. ;)
