The 14th Annual Black August Hip Hop show was nothing short of incredible as Cavalier, myself and Faro Z set the tone for an incredible night! Enjoy the photos, video coming soon!
(Cavalier was the 1st to touch the stage that night.. he tore that mofo apart!)
2nd to the stage.. THE MECCAGODZILLA! Was not playing NO GAMES on my debut at SOBs

Prolific and incredible poet from Long Island, helped close my set! Thank you Pro!!
This show is very important to my people.. So what does Black August mean?
“The Black August Hip Hop Project strives to promote human rights though supporting and influencing the global development of Hip Hop culture.

BUY THE RYU BLACK MUSICAL! (LIMITED EDITION CDs)NOW!
Although Dave is a personal friend, below is what he wrote…it’s from the heart.. it’s amazing actually! Thank you DAVE!!!!
Now that you read that, what do you think about the musical!???
Stuff like this is truly inspiring and encouraging… It is really great that Dave got what I got once I finished creating this album.. He’s a real, real, real tough fighter..and it’s inspiring that he could vibe to it… I’m honored
I was doing these posts a few months ago but I stopped… I think it’s time to rekindle!
Enjoy Kimbo Slice’s first Heavyweight Boxing match where he smashes his opponent in 17 seconds… chotto Tysonesque style!
get it in Kimbo!
Seriously, is it me or is Yaya Han by far the hottest Felicia on the planet! Wonder if she’d like my RYU BLACK song “Once Bit 10” (pun for once bitten…by the alcohol induced love bug) She’s killing it!
(Someone tell that Wolf to watch his hands!)
Yup! Today is my birthday and I’m 33 years old. Amazing that I’ve made it this far. I am blessed for each day I’m alive, the majority of the days I’ve been healthy and happy!
I made it!
I seriously thought Chun Li would’ve been #1. Well in my book yes! Mai Shiranai should have been way up on that list! GameFront did a pretty good job though!
honorable mention… and no she does not have fleas… Felicia!
and 2 more super throwbacks! Psylocke and ROGUE!
(if ONLY ROGUE LOOKED LIKE THIS IN THE X MEN Live Action Films… Hollywood stinks sometimes!)
