Hip Hop Honors:Def Jam


Hip Honors powerhouse label Def Jam records tonite on vh1. Def Jam is like the rap version of Motown, in bringing the best artist of the genre of different backgrounds into the studio with the best up-coming producers. Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin helped make the genre mainstream along with artist LL Cool J, Beastie Boys and Public Enemy. It's been 25 years in the making and Def Jam finally gets it's due. I'm glad that VH1 has become way more hip hop than BET is now.

Hmph!

What Up Nellz Nation,

I think the tank is finally running on empty. I've been able to keep up drawing for nearly 3 months nonstop and today I couldn't do it. I mean starting from yesterday afternoon to this very morning, I couldn't draw a single good picture. I just finished touching up the Michael Jackson sketch I'm working on, then designed some new Nellz Nation characters Wednesday night.
I was a little hyped up yesterday you can say off just 2 cups of coffee, then candy later on that day, so my game was a little off, then this morning it continued on. After doing a shirt- http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=161695735&albumID=1229889&imageID=41129535-for TNA knockout Tara (who still hasn't decided on a shirt design), I was emailed believe it or not by fitness model and lingerie model Jenny Poussin to do a comic version of her. So far I came up with some decent costumes, but the drawings were terrible. I'm thinking of not even doing it at all (not just because of those bad drawings). To boot, my Microsoft Word is actin crazy and wont open my resume. I don't know, I'm ranting again, but I have had some decent moments in the past couple of months so I can't front on that.
That's why I come here, I can say what I want when I want how I want.
Good Day NN.
