I voted for myself on Vita.MN's "best local albums" list. But I was right at number 11, and one more vote for "conscious is not enough" would put me in the top ten, so i did it.
I figure if Jon Jon can vote for Muja, it's only fair. haha. I also voted for Culture Bully for best local blog, but refrained from voting for this one, though I must admit it's pretty spectacular.
This is cool though-- i just heard that the mixtape cracked 500 downloads, which is about where I wanted it to be by now. If you haven't got it yet, go get it-- at my official site or myspace blog, or on this blog if you search for the link.
Also found out the City Pages is printing something about me soon. Lots of year-end attention, and we haven't even made the big announcement about January 23 or the 12/'09 album yet. Wink wink, yo.
Anyways, this is kind of a mishmash post, so i may as well post this too: the flyer for the big show on 12/27. These are about 5 out of my 7 favorite local hip hop acts, so don't miss it:
Me and SeeMore will be playing early, so come early, damn it. Everyone on the bill is phenomenal. Don't miss anything.
Finally, there's this:
