Kasama Tayo

What a weekend it's been thus far! The homie Luv MC lured me out to attend this "hiphop" workshop aaaall the way out in Carson, hosted by the Sama-Sama crew. It's hard to explain in words what exactly the workshop is, since it's so much more than just a hiphop writing workshop... It's a discussion group, it's an educational forum, and to some it's relief and therapy.

Met alot of cool peoples, some young and aspiring MC's/poets, tough kids, everyone humble as pie and down to dirt (earth). The discussions and activities were quite profound and forward thinking. I also finally got put on game as to what the heck Anak Bayan does by the brotha in the glasses! All this time of hearing about them...

I'm always surprised that even today, with google at your fingertips, how many people still don't know what Baybayin/Alibata is... so of course I had to put a few heads on game!
