  4. It’s yours. You make art because you have to, because you got no choice. It’s not about talents, it’s about no choice but to do it… Who knows? Who cares?…” - Nick Nolte

    - Its alway sad when good images dont get used. I shot this portrait of Well$ in May for a magazine, but in the end they went with an illustration. As frustrating as it is, in the end it’s part of the game.

  9. Ghostface Killah  - “The Forest”

    [Raekwon - sings]

    I see buds that are green, red roses too
    I see the blunts, for me and you
    And I say to myself, what a wonderful world..

    [Chorus - Ghostface Killah and Raekwon]
    It’s the illest little story for all the girls and boys
    Wonderland you should see it, ch-yo
    Animated actors that become ya toys
    Once you see it, don’t believe, ch-yo

    [Ghostface Killah]
    Aiyo, my wiz play the flute, I stroll through the forest like
    Peace, pussies, trees, hello, how was your day? Have you seen the prince? 
    Haven’t seen him since he pushed Humpty Da-Dumpty fell off the fence 
    The smurfs fell out laughin’, Heckle toe Jeckle at min,
    They took my medicade card, he’s a good friend
    Bugs still sniffin’, Daffy Duck snitchin’
    And heard that crazy Bird took the stand on the Simpsons
    Bet you “my golly, oh glory” with a story to tell 
    Droopy got knocked, now he Muslim in jail
    His name is Abdrul, Colorful, Snow White tattoo
    She used to send him mad flicks in Cash Rule
    And the cat too, old girl who’s clackin’ her shoes
    And that wicked witch broke her broom, clappin’ at school
    It happens every night, I seen it, shoot outs in Jellystone Park
    Kermit had the whip, he did from the Narks
    They bagged Woody, Shaggy shot dead in his hoodie
    Tweety did the Bird, “I thaw, I thought I thaw a putty”
    Ghost, please you don’t even want to know
    Droopy Long wrote a song, like to hear it, here it go…
    Ricochet Rabbit had a habit, he was savage
    Bruto slapped, Magoto slapped out his glasses backwards
    Magelity used to come to class wit rachets
    He was known in the hood, plus good for his classics
    Slashes, blast four-fifths, diamond cut, hollow point tips
    Big Boy bustin’ out his corderoy fix
    Eleven, way beyond is little boy fit
    Magoo, he gon’ catch him at the teachers’ conference
    So later that week durin’ open school night
    Everybody there, saw open school fight
    Blows is big, Olive Oil was pissed
    The wolf was too, they murdered one of the pigs
    He said, “What great big heat you have”
    He replied, “Fuck my gun I’ll eat you fast”
    He said, “What great big teeth you have”
    "Mothafu- you better look at all the beef you have"


    [Ghostface Killah]
    After that though, Jerry, Tom’s the cat, Ruther Rats
    Riff rat, courageous cat, Jossie and the Pussycats
    Porky Pig ripped shag, Elmer Fudd’s double snub cartoon gat
    Had sat in the back of the Hat, the hippos had O’s
    Wilma had fucked Johnny Bravo
    Richie had his shit snatched then yapped at a live show
    That bitch dollar boated yo, Astro screamed on Dino
    That’s what he gets for ass-betting Snoopy C-low
    Goofy had kilos, big hole in his nose, wind blows 
    Heard he was Moe, and showed how he rolled
    Peter Pan’s the man, he heard Grammy was blood-ed
    She shot Ms. Piggy, she’s superior on her set
    Pippy Long Stocking had it poppin’
    Her and Barney had an army out in pink house, the shit was rockin’
    Guess who got rich and bounced? Scrooge McDuck, he had an ounce
    Ain’t no money out in CandyLand, we out…
