Also on January 15th my Major Label Debut on the Thug Life Army Records Fontana/Universal/AMG distributed release "IN THE SHADOW OF AN ICON"-Hits the Stores! This album which gives tribute to the icon Tupac Shakur (2Pac) is being called "the most significant release in years." Go cop the Double CD which features the song 2Pacs More by Jasiri X and Franchise which was produced by the Legendary Grand Arkitech of X-Clan , Paradise Gray! For more information on this historic compilation visit http://thuglifearmyrecords.com/

Lastly I want to sincerely thank Sista Jewel from African Soul International and all the people in Cleveland who came out on New Years Day in a snowstorm to see me Rock the Mic on this final day of Kwanzaa celebration. We truly need more positive events like this.
