With the release of the SON hopefully coming up soon it is fucked up that the man making the music won't be able to get a disc himself.
The DH Army is coming back to life and picking up new members daily. But, the man who started this all is still in jail and ten years later we still have a D.A. unwilling to review this case. Nobodoy wants to touch this with a ten foot pole in that office.
How do we do something? SPMaftermath.com has instructions twice a month on how to write letters to the D.A. to ask to reexamine this case.
There are two specific posts on how to write effective letters.
If we intend to make a difference the DH Army will need to be more than just a fan club. We need to start showing the world we have a strong voice. I am asking you to take a few minutes out of your day twice a month and write a letter to the D.A.
If you need a stamp and an envelope just email me where to send it.
I will send you a stamp and envelope. You only need to provide the time and write the letter.
We need to stop just saying Free SPM. We have the ability to do it if everyone provides just a little of their time.
Don't just whisper it. Don't Just shout it. Do it. Free SPM.
Talked to Los and he is working almost a hundred percent of his time working on a video treatment for a track off the SON.
He is excited about the concept for the cover Pain told him about and he is working on a dedication to the fans on the inside cover.
It's all coming together and it is just details and artwork now that is needed for the album. The music videos are almost out of the planning phase and will begin filming soon.
There is a publication that recently published an interview with Los which discussed many things including Carolyn Rodriguez. This FAKE interview said many things including she was not part of the Dope House family and some other stupid shit claiming it was said by Los. Sadly some people chose to believe Los was spewing this hate and started attacking Carolyn.
Los primarily speaks through SPMaftermath.com and he only talks about love. Carolyn is a strong member of the DH family and one of the few people that is on the SP Meskin's visitor list.
This was just a cheap publication and a few hateful people on Facebook trying to use someones name to start some drama, get their name out there, and make a buck. Which is exactly why I refuse to acknowledge them directly at the moment.
Carolyn is DH family, don't believe every idiot with a computer.
Even I am getting tired of all the updates and still no album. Los made this album in lock. That itself presented a challenge. You ever see somebody set up a sound booth in a jail cell? The shit took awhile to master and get up to professional standards, I've heard it and know it is both dope and done. It is set for a March release, to the best of my knowledge it is just at the point where the initial few discs need to be made to verify quality, the snippets need to be released, then a shit load of discs need to be made. I am going to try and get weekly updates for everyone till that point.
DOPE HOUSE ARMY
Got my boy Kevin who I am going to get with on heading up the new DH Army, @spmofficialfancb. Young J will probably be the first one with snippets for people, @wemadeyou2010 . Stay up to date with what's going on with the DH family at mexicaninfo.Blogspot.com. If it does not come directly from or is mentioned by Carolyn(medicine girl), Baby Bash, Lucky, Gotti, Jay(SPMaftermath), Brent Morton, Tudy, or @sonofnorma,or Pain, it may not really be Carlos or his words. Don't believe all this negative shit and hate being spewed by people. Some people need to lie and use other people's names to get you to listen.
“And they said I couldn't do t. Now I'm selling out stores, stayin true to it. Even from a prison I ball like a rocket. Mothafuckas steady trippin, cause they just can't stop it.”
That's what the hook says, and it's nothing but the truth. This song is a reminder to all of you, that no matter what, as long as I'm breathing, these hoes will feel me.
I liken this song to a victo
After I say that, I start my first verse. I end that verse with these four lines:
“So much love in the mail they handin me
Fans are family, friends was a fantasy
Everything clear, let the saga live on
bout time I wrote a mothafuckin positive song, H!”
The 2nd verse ends like this:
“This is my hood, we don't claim no sets
but the streets are alive and the game don't rest
So I stay on my toes, still I'm able to smile
A brand new year, man, I made it somehow ha!”
“And They Said” has two 16 line verses, and ends with an 8 line verse. On the outro, I dedicate the song to E-Dub and Khool-Aid from Pocos Pero Locos Radio Show. These two people have done so much for the Mexican American rap artist, and I love them very much. Make sure you're supporting Pocos Pero Locos (The Network) in every way you can. They also have a record label, and a new video show.
I write in pencil, this is how the story end
Rhyme wicked, forensic, scientific,
You can’t see me, dog, less you buy a ticket…”
Man, I could listen to this song over and over. The hook is addictive and shadow Ramirez did a dope job on the beat.
It’s one of those jams that’s strictly for the rollers. Whether you’re rollin a blunt or an Eighty-Two Lac, just roll on. I start the first verse:
“Tadaaaaaaah, look who back
With them 84’s pokin out a brand ne Lac
Supa dupa car, I pull a superstar
You gon’ look I don
As I was writing this song, I was thinking about the carwash on Martin Luther King Blvd., where everyone goes on Sundays. You see nothing but candy paint drippin, syrup slippin, trunks poppin and diamonds on wood.
You’ll notice on the SON album how I’m having more fun than on When Devils Strike and The Last Chair Violinist. I can only write how I feel during those times in my life, especially on When Devils Strike, you can hear the darkness. But songs like “Chiefin” will take you back to the “Reveille Park” days when I was just clowning the mike.
Here’s a few lines from the 2nd verse:
“Soon as I hit the scene a nigga triple teamed
Bitches starin at me like they dyin to kiss a king
They wanna be Billie Jean and try to combine
9 months later say his eyes look like mine…”
But I tell ‘em like Mike did, “The kid is not my son!”
The first lines of this song s
The first verse is mostly playful, but does touch on the game “dope game.” There’s a line where I say, “In the game with no ref, but will bury a fouler.”
This is a song where I’m not only singing the hook, but also a few lines within the verses. Some say my voice is one only a mother can love, but I vehemently disagree. Mom says I’m the Mexican Barry Manilow, so love it or shove it.
I start the second verse:
“I meet a fan and be trippin how they squeeze my hand/
I remember chuggin Busch and I’d keep the can. . .”
A few lines later I start singing this line:
“In the club I be tryna dance/
But I look like gramps when he fell in the plants . . .”
That goes on to talk about how my “Wela” didn’t think that was funny, but I did. This was just a memory I had that I decided to share. I was, like, eight at the time, and when we do the video, we’ll need to find a kid for that part.
Every verse on the SON is dope, and the last verse of people is no exception. I talk about my cousin being at the war in Iraq; “Livin under pressure, I pray for the soldier.” Right after that, I touch on the night my bestfriend’s daughter was shot with an AK-47(In a drive by.) Her foot was hanging by the skin. If she had slept the other way on the couch, (which was the side she normally slept on), the bullet would have hit her head. Still, what can you tell a man’s who’s liyyle girl’s blood is all over the floor? All we could do was cry in eachother’s arms. It’s a long story but the cops caught the bitches before we could. The good news was that the doctors did an amazing job of reconstructing her ankle. She was only six or seven so her bones grew exactly how the doctors anticipated, and now she’s fine. She walks and runs and jumps like it never happened. She’s married now and just had her first baby around a year ago.
“Lord help me, tight fists around the clip/
I feel like I can’t breathe, I need revenge for this shit. . .”
Her dad is Joey, the one with his entire back tatted with the Dope House logo. He’s one of the few men that I’ll die for. He also served in the United States Army. Long live the Navajo Nation.
Until the snippet releases, I'm going to begin giving you a literary snippet on the S.O.N. I'll start with the official song list:
"The Son of Norma"
1. SPM Vs. K-Luv
6. The River
7. They Said
9. Till They Come
10. Without The Son
11. Don't Go Away
12. Poor Kids
13. My Homegirl
14. To The Flame
15. If it were you
16. Addicted To Storms
"SPM Vs. K-Luv" is a battlerap of me against a guy in the Harris County Jail. We actually had several battleraps because he was always challenging me. But, this time I was on the phone with Shadow, and he recorded us. A homeboy named J-Soto, who is one of the County Boys, (a group I put together in the County), held the phone between me and K-Luv, and we went at it.
My favorite thing about this battlerap is that we found time to enjoy ourselves, even under such difficult circumstances. K-Luv was awaiting trial and still wasn't sure if the DA was going to push for the death penalty. He was out there on drugs, and hanging out with the wrong people, and the next thing you know, him and his "friends" are in jail, facing aggravated kidnapping charges, and even murder.
I was there, hoping to get relief on my appeal, but no dice. A few weeks later I was on the bus, going back to prison.
One of the funniest parts (I think) is when K-Luv says they compared to him, I'm "shorter than a midget." The ironic part is that I'm taller than he is! I got dead on his ass for that one.
On one part I'm imitating his mom, who's making him "stay in the house!" I must have reminded him of Eminem because he says, "You ain't no Eminem, you're more like a skittle…" Sadly, he could find nothing to rhyme with "Skittle."
That was about the last thing he said, because after that, I went off. I told him I'd make him have some lumps, and make him dance around talkin bout "my humps."
Just like our previous battles, K-Luv walks away in defeat. But he was back the next day, ready for another lashing.
PS. I'll talk about "People" next.
