MTV Hive Premieres Nocando's "No Sweat" Featuring Pigeon John and Cel!
I got a call to work with Nocando a couple of months back and I jumped at the chance to work with this cat. Throughout the years I've seen him kill Project Blowed and Low End Theory, but the first time I seen him in action was at Basement Records Battle in Sherman Oaks, CA, he might've been 16 and one first place. So I drove to North Hollywood on a wintery night and we recorded this song in no time, Taurus Scott sat in the lend an ear. Well here it is, spread the word! No Sweat.

Well, I'm back from my wonderful stay in Germany. It was the thickest week I've seen in awhile. I met cops, robbers, poets, drunks, DJs, dark alleys and many many splendid Germans. Big ups to me band, Ian Sloane (bass) and Terry Harrison (drums) who had my back and played swift.
We rocked a TV a show (video here), performed on the street in front of fireworks, got to know hotel employees a little too well, performed in the lobby of the awesome Michelberger Hotel -- my favorite hotel in Berlin; opened up for Bag Raiders in Hamburg and performed a acoustic set at Luki (Hamburg).
They ride alot of bikes in Berlin and very fast. Im back home now in LA and its hot and city like. I'm writing and reading like a mad man and cooking my own meals. Hope you like the new links and clips and the new record Dragon Slayer. If you like it then check out my older records as well on iTunes. Well, the TVs calling and I'm hungry so I have to go but we'll speak soon.......
I like you.

Whats up players? I'm back in France and doing it bigger, defer, and wilder. Check the dates below. Im touring with Terry Harrison on drums and vocals and Ian Sloane on bass, keys and vocals. Its great to be back. I love this country. And this time back I get to go to London and Germany touring and promoting Dragon Slayer. If you haven't gotten the new record go and buy it today on iTunes. So far I've been writing beats, driving, eating, sleeping, reading and macking. So far. Big wide ups to Discograph and Universal Music Germany for helping get the record out here. Love ya'll and can't wait to see you at the shows! DRAGON SLAYER!
Hey all! So my French tour was the best tour of my life. Ian Sloane and Terry Harrison on bass and drums made it awesome. On one of our press days in Paris we met Chip-p, a local filmmaker, and he asked to shoot a clip. We said yes mofo, and were dragged into the middle of Gambetta, Paris in front of the same people I went to jail in front of (long and frozen story), and shot the brand new video for "So Gangster".
I told Chip-p and his gang of local Paris boys and a girl named Milk, to choose their favorite song off of Dragon Slayer — and they chose, shot, edited, and directed it in the natural light of Paris' 20th district Gambetta. Our neighborhood in France. Hope you like it!

Team PJ hinted about this last year but it is now a reality! Starting this Thursday night, you can hear the first single off DragonSlayer as the theme to a brand new Jetta commercial. Volkswagen cleverly inserted the classic "sitting dance" by Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor into the backseat of the all new Jetta to showcase both the legroom…and how perfectly “The Bomb” goes with the vintage footage. Modern classic indeed! The commercial will start to air during The Office and again during David Letterman so be sure to spread the word. Text your friends telling them to watch, tweet the deets to your loyal followers, post the info on your wall, just yell out the window, do what you have to do to make sure folks know that your favorite neighborhood rapper just made primetime!
Check out the commercial on my Youtube page:
