I’ve been hinting at this for a bit here and there of twitter, sick facebook, this blog .
In 2001, I released Original. My very first mixtape, 10 years ago.
Yeah, thats it up there, made so long ago it actually came out on cassette.
Now ,if you have been following my career, the release of this mixtape proved to be a turning point in my life. Almost everything that I’ve gotten to do, all that I’ve accomplished can be tied to that mixtape. And being that it is the 10 year anniversary of its release – we are gonna be celebrating next week Dec 14th @ Greenhouse in NYC. We are locking in the details – but we have some of the greatest DJ’s coming through to create the soundtrack for the night!
Now I know I have fans all over the world, but for my peoples in the U.S. you have a chance TODAY AND TOMORROW to win a chance to come out to NYC and party with me courtesy of adidas Originals.
