Dog Agility park to open up back in my hometown of Waukegan, IL. It is named after Alicia Mentell and her son, Justin Mentell, who was a friend of mine and drummer who I worked with on my last 2 albums (“La di da”, “Take Me Home”, “Hate That I Love You”) before his untimely passing a few years ago.
For those who don’t know…my hommie DJ Baddmixx is not only a personal friend of mine who helped me out when I was going through some tough times, he ALSO played an instrumental AND influential role in my career. ANYONE in the northern IL area this weekend, please come out and support his Birthday. I won’t be able to make it, but if you could come through and show him some love we here at RiP Records would all appreciate it greatly. The event is held Fri Oct. 7, 2011 at St. Joseph Hall in Waukegan, IL.
