It's A Celebration: Happy New Year!!


Happy New Year!

I would like to wish everyone out there good health and prosperity in 2010.

2009 was a fucked up year for me, but I'm optimistic that I will be back on grind mode with a new gig and a better outlook.

So I'm forgetting about the past and I'm ready for the future.

But for right now . . . it's time to celebrate!

Kool and the Gang -- "Celebration"

In retrospect of 2009, I would like to thank you the readers for checking out Beats and Rants. I would like to thank the former editors of Vibe magazine for recognizing my blog first and adding me to their controversial "Hottest Rap Blogs List."

I plan on continuing to develop this blog -- maybe do a little redecorating around here -- and bring you the hot ish in hip-hop, music and fashion.

Have a blessed New Year everyone.

As always . . .
