Not dead....But i did go blind. . .



Okay. . . since getting layed off times have been rough. Me and my family have really been goin' through alot. Being homeless and blind(temporarily) have to be in my top two(or bottom two dependin' on how you look at it.) But I won't get into the crazy details of how I am where I am right now. It's not important. What's important is what we do from here. They say you grind from the bottom just to make it to the bottom. That's because people think you should just give up when hardships come. Like if you have a nightmare you should just stop dreamin'. I can't do that. I can't focus on the bad when there's so much good in my life. And i thank God for that. I gotta thank Tiff for being a real friend when my family needed it the most. You're truly a life saver, Homie. And my Grandmother back in Philly....I can't thank you enough for everything you've done for me, for my wife, for my children. I love you with everything that i am. I also wanna thank Sanford Greene and Bragi Schut for their help. I appreciate the efforts alone. Good lookin' out. So with all that being said, I'm doin what i gotta do for us. It seems as if there's no way.....so I have to make a way. It's what I do. So stay tunned for what I've got in store.
Anyway, on a slightly less depressing note. . .
I had an interview in last month's (or the month before......i don't know) Asian magazine "CG WORLD". It was a Q and A interview in which they labeled me "Dark Scorpio"(I had nothin' to do with that.......but i like it.) The actual magazine is not in english so if anybody wants to check it out, I posted the English version here "the Interview"
holla at yall later.

!BAMF!

Roc man you're a bad dude! Keep crankin the art out man, its paying off if your work is reaching across the globe its just a matter of time before things turn around for you. Plus you wouldn't be the shit if you didn't keep your cool when times are hard thats when you really see what you're made of. I swear your work has gotten even more vicious.

Hey man keep your head up and rely on the Lord! I know how it is. I got laid off myself and I've been struggling but, God's been taking care of me and I know he'll deliver me and you too man! Rely on the Lord and he'll provide for you all your needs in his riches in glory.
