"Things haven’t been the same since K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. Not for Justin Scott and not for yours truly. Seconds after “Something” spun to its end I was sold, hooked, and spent the next two weeks begging K.R.I.T.’s partner, Johnny Shipes, to buy two tickets to San Francisco. I wanted K.R.I.T. to win, and I knew that if people could see his songs come alive in a real studio, with a real band, than they’d be hooked, just like I was. Seconds after Shipes said yes I was begging the best R&B band I knew, Grillade, to volunteer their time to help K.R.I.T. and yours truly see this dream become reality. They said yes, and after a day together at Different Fur Studios, they’d made The 'Wuz Here' Sessions EP, which yours truly is beyond proud to bring to your computers and turntables soon.

Big K.R.I.T. wouldn’t be the man he is today without Grandma Linnie. The same woman he recalls cooking something good for his soul in “Neva Go Back” is responsible for one of K.R.I.T.’s critical characteristics: his gumption. It’s this strength, and respect for tradition that separates K.R.I.T. from his peers, and gives his songs that lasting luster.
This version of “Neva Go Back” belongs to K.R.I.T., Miss Linnie and the members of Grillade, who fill it to the brim with their own memories and melodies. Notice the weightless harmony in the hook. That marriage of instruments sounds like it should be celebrating its 20th anniversary, but in reality, KRIT and Grillade vocalist Ragen Fykes met for the first time that day at Different Fur. Proof that time isn’t the only force tying us together. In this case, its a shared passion, mutual admiration, and good old-fashioned gumption.

It's said that the eyes are windows to the soul and our faces merely mask what we truly feel. The eyes hold our pain, fear, and our joy. Our eyes are our cameras and the keys to what we perceive and dare to remember. Do you dare to take a look thru Mickey Factz eyes? Do you dare to alter your perception of the world you "see"? ....Black Tearz...The story continues...

In music, some subjects are forbidden, some are taboo and other are as transparent as the very tears we cry. Walk with Mickey Factz as he takes you on a journey to see the world through his eyes. What you see may make you think, it may make you feel, it may make you change….Black Tearz...This is the beginning

The story of a come up is the American Dream. From George Washington defeating the British and winning the colonies their Independence. An incompetent George Bush becoming the President of the U.S. A naive George Jung transforming into the infamous Boston George. Or just moving from the hood to having an Eastside apartment in the sky like George Jefferson. For these George's the story of the come-up always started with a will to survive, which led them to becoming the ultimate hustlers. This is the story of Smoke DZA aka George Kush Jr. Welcome to "The Early Days of George." Smoke DZA's THC, The Hustler's Catalog coming soon.
