If you're somewhere around 28 and up, and were submerged in all things hip-hop back in the late 80's and early 90's, then MC BREED wouldn't be a name foreign to your eardrum. "Big Baller" Eric Breed was most familiar for his chart breaking, "Ain't No Future In Yo' Frontin'", but had a discography that played soundtrack to many of our growing up experiences.

So a few weeks ago, as i was sitting in the studio working on a project for my homie Wayniac, i noticed a photo of him and Breed on his computer. i proceeded to tell him how I grew up listening to Breed, and so he began to talk about the birthday/memorial celebration he was helping his Breed's wife Tasha put together. Knowing that this is the season of the Gemini, i mentioned to Wayniac something about that being his reason for being so dope, since i myself am a Gemini...and pretty dope! So Wayniac mentions that Breed's birthday was June 12th, same day as mine. i found that to be quite interesting and a little more than coincidence, so i told Wayniac that i'd like to do the flyer for the event. He was sure to let me know there was no budget to pay for designing the flyer, but i let him know that the money didn't matter. i felt it would be a good deed for an artist i respected and whose music i grew up on.

Honestly, i think it's a decent job to serve the purpose. Tasha (Breed's wife) however, was very appreciative. She even pointing out various details in the design she liked that i took for granted. Nevertheless, i'm glad i had the opportunity to work this out for her, and for all the fans who will come out Thursday, June 11th to pay homage to the late great MC Eric Breed.

"You know who it is, you know what it is...peace out."


  1. word. dope ish fam!! Projects like that is a must sometimes due to the cause

  2. thas hot man! are you going to do a breakdown of how you did this one as well?
