This is a wonderful story and actually I’m just experiencing some of the same things with my two daughters at 4 and 2. As they are now both old enough to sleep in a room of their own we recently bought the twin bunk bed of our dreams (or at least mine – but I’m already convinced it is also the girl’s dream bunk bed) and it is a wonder of fun and happy nights without worries about safety. I’m sure anybody who buys a bed like this will feel the same way.

I know this is a post a little bit out of the ordinary but as the year is coming to an end it is time to sum up what happened this year - that is of course: what happened with concerts and live performances.
Well, I'd say it was a great year. Especially this summer as I toured Europe and made a stop in Denmark as the Festival of Skanderborg went on. Great place and as the festival tickets were at a fair price I can't complain. And then there was the Danish women and the Danish beer. As to music I especially enjoyed Beth Hart. Now that is a woman that knows her hard rock and has an oppinion about everything.
This coming year my account will be drained by a long list of concert tickets I just need to buy. First of all I just have to go to the UK and see ACDC in concert. So ACDC tickets will be up first. Actually that will be one of the biggest musical experiences of 2010 as I have never seen ACDC live. It will be a blast and I can't wait.

There’s a lot of young talent coming out of the Thizz Camp. Another new artist to the Thizz Roster is, Rockola A.K.A. Nat Kin Cola. Rock as they call him on the streets, does graphic art, & hip/hop. He’s originally from San Francisco CA, and started selling painted T-shirts out of backyards in Richmond, CA. More and more people started to recognize his talent locally, until he got a buzz. Now Rock works with fellow Thizz graphic artists Cosmo & Stretch. He also hooked up with producer Gennessee at Noble House to record his Solo album, which has yet to be released. On top of that M.I.S.T.A.H. F.A.B. had a role in bringing them all together. It’s like a family affair over there at Thizz. Rockola wants to start working on a line of T-shirts sporting a lot of different images of Mac Dre. He’s currently working with a graphics company out of Oakland, CA, called Legends. He dropped a single a while back called “It’s my Life”, he’s got a new one coming out called “Back & Forth” featuring M.I.S.T.A.H. F.A.B., he’s got another one called “Showin Out” both produced by Gennessee. He’s wrapping up his first Solo album coming out pretty soon.
He say’s he’s been rapping and doing graffiti art for over 10 years now. So he’s a seasoned vet at a young age. He hooked up with the right cats and got his foot in the door. It’s good for Hip/Hop because some people think that hip/hop is just rapping over a beat. They don’t think about the graphic artist that makes the album cover, or wraps the team van, or designs the clothing line. So thank god for our graphic artist, if they weren’t here, where would hip/hop be?

Thizz is making big moves, signing hot new artists and producers. Taz is a first round draft pick. He basically produces and engineers everything that comes out of the Thizz Camp. He owns and runs his own studio, “Savage Dragon.” He produces, records and mixes down tracks for cats like J. Diggs, Crest Keepers, Rydah J. Klyde, M.I.S.T.A.H. F.A.B., Dubee, The Fendi Boyz, Star Studded, P.I.D., almost everybody off the Thizz Roster. Even cats that aren’t signed to Thizz, like Keak Da Sneak, and Yukmouth. Taz was introduced to Mac Dre and Thizz through J. Diggs after a show that Dre did, and every since then he has been working for Thizz. I’ve been in Taz’s studio; it’s pretty nice.
Taz was an Arabic drummer for his family in the Mid East, he came to America at the age of 12. Taz’s father told him one day “ no matter how far away we get from each other, music will bring us back together, because it’s a world wide language.” But when he started buying expensive studio equipment, they said he was doing too much. Taz’s philosophy was it will pay of one day. Well I think that day is coming sooner than he thinks.
When asked how he felt about dealing with the Thizz Camp, he said, “it’s one of the biggest lessons anyone could have in life, because you have to learn to deal with bigger people than yourself. When you are dealing with bigger people with bigger power, it’s hard to tell them there wrong, even if you know they are wrong. You have to explain everything when your working for a big company, miscommunication is the number one thing that will break up a company, but Thizz is doing well today.
