We are excited about the possibilites tomorrow will bring with Obama at the reins and we are looking forwrd to feeding the world’s craving for Old School Hip-Hop; this music brings people back to better times. We will be at the VH-1 Hip-Hop Honors in full force and hopefully, in 2009 one of our groups, the Fat Boys will be inducted into the Rock n’ Roll hall of fame. I will see you at Diddy’s Super Bowl kickoff!”
