Murs and Fashawn’s relationship sprouted from a deep mutual admiration. They didn’t know each other personally, but both prolific west coast MCs had watched the others’ career from a distance. Growing up, Fashawn saw Murs release numerous successful solo projects and collaboration albums with both 9th Wonder and Slug of Atmosphere. When he wasn’t recording, Murs founded the Paid Dues Festival in San Bernadino, California, one of the largest independent music festivals in the country with over 15,000 people in attendance last year. In the meantime, Murs looked on as Fashawn grew from Evidence’s (Dilated Peoples) protégé into his own on his debut album Boy Meets World, eventually being recognized nationally as a 2010 XXL Freshman. Finally, the mutual admiration resulted in a collaborative effort. The two will release This Generation on September 25th 2012 through Duck Down Music Inc.
Now, wait! WAIT!
Before you judge me, I just want to say that I KNOW you’re not supposed to say that. And I KNOW adults shouldn’t really look upon children with disdain. It’s just wrong. The age difference MAKES it wrong…and it’s especially wrong to say that about your partner’s kids. Right?
Well too fuckin’ bad. I could NOT stand his kids.
And it wasn’t without reason y’all. I tried to like them. I really did. I wasn’t proud that I came to this almost-impermissible conclusion, but it was just the flat out truth. It all came down to one thing: behaviour.
We had known each other for a while, both single parents, and had been good friends with a lot in common. Our children had met in passing at events and on occasions over those years. His son (herein referred to as “Darling Son”) and daughter (herein referred to as “Darling Daughter”) seemed to have fun and get along well with my son, given that they were all close in age. When romance blossomed, it was surely a no-brainer! WRONG. Read more…

Obama should think twice about Iran More and more each day appears that the US is inching its way closer to an armed conflict with Iran — something I think will hurt the US more than Israel in the long term. All because the big bully on the block, Israel is purported to be “facing grave danger.” This is mainly being promoted by Zionist from everywhere this side of the Pecos River. My question is why do we have to defend Israel, a nation with the largest army and only nuclear arsenal in the region?
We all are well aware of the fact that Israel is no friend of Iran, or of any other Islamic and predominantly Arab state in the region. Thus, Israel is the one making trouble yet they want the present administration to decide to launch a pre-emptive war in what are probably the world’s most volatile environs.
