Universal will put out a scaled down version of S.L. Jones "C.O.L.O.R.S," originally released as mixtape, likely in April. This news comes Jones, who was cool enough to holler at me a few days back.

Got a phone call from S.L. Jones a few days back.

Came out in 2000. In 2002, met him in 2002. Lines get blurred between business and friendship. No way he can fully focus on mine. No matter who shot the ball it’s a score for the team.

Universal situation came from being down so long. See them step up and do something. It’s a good thing. Re-release. 16 songs. I took every song with a sample off and did like 8 tracks.

Initial agreement. Getting the album mixdown today. Version. It’s not a contract.

I knew it was like a Catch 22. There’s gonna be people that hate. Same people. Damned if damned if I didn’t. After the Source. At first I was just a motherfucker from the hood.

Philander. Kicked me out b/c I didn’t have a major. Wanted to start an art program. Came to Atlanta at the Art Institute. Only thing I knew beyond that. Freestyling to me is like stree basketball—its cute, its looks good. Engineer at Stankonia. No matter what I did, I always kept a part time job. When Killer was with Outkast. Oct. Nov. in 2000 or 2002. Took him on the road. Bangin out of Little Rock. I seen how the negativity of that shit. At Statehouse when Crip Mo came out in the stage when U.G.K. Negativity in Little Rock. Bangin’ out of Little Rock. The Little Rockumentary to make sure people got him.
Then line between documentation and glorification. Careful with how I say it. My little borther and my little cousin they are all that. Say. The song with me and E-Dubb is probably as flagarant. I got could in on the East End. Wasn’t supposed to be. Me and dub go. Beating on the lunch table. Do an album called Rock Boys. Wrapping up an album right not. Killer gave him a verse. Had to redo this one. Committed to both of them. Getting all the look. Playa Mone. People just bitter. It’s hard to be happy for someone else when you hadn’t done what you wanted to.

Get exposed to people at Philander. But 18 and 19. Twenty-eight. Twice a year. Stay for two weeks. So wrapped up with Killer’s career. I get money being on the road.

Probably April. PSC. Mac Boney. Dro big priority. Worse for his time.

In a minute, nah. Little Rock Playas. Everybody just got to stay supportive. Can’t be on the. New one. Universal. Like number 7 as a single. Own the plastic. 200,000.

Got a support system around me that can minimize it. Been around long enough. Represent. It’ll work.

Joint venture. Normally, they would open up a budget and play for budget, album cover and all that. Did that myself. All they have to do. Partners. Not signed. Distributed. Points.

Anything with the Rock, I’m down. Sags and Flags. Other places, like Little Rock in 1994.

Anything that anyone in the town needs. I ain’t gotta be the one. If its somebody. That’s relative. If Dub come out. If 607 come out. We’re good.

I exchanged one for the next. Three albums worth of music in hard drive. When I drew.
