Friday, June 17, 2011
On June 17th in Dallas, TX, we’ll be privileged to be a part of a great hip-hop event, The Calling, housing some of the most talented artists around the area, such as Sore Losers, A.Dd+, Head Krack, and more. If you guys know anything about Loyal K.N.G. then you’ll be familiar with our love for hip-hop duo, Sore Losers (Freeloader Mixtape) and A.Dd+ (When Pigs Fly). These guys are hands down some of the most talented artists to come out of Dallas, and they are truly strong representatives of the hip-hop culture here in Texas. From intelligent hip-hop raps, strong relevant messages, and great instrumental production, Sore Losers and A.Dd+ holds it down for the TX hip-hop scene in a BIG way. And with all things Texas, that’s just the way it should be.
The event is hosted by Cool Beings’ Jesse Porter. Check out the facebook event page here for all the information or check out below:

"I shouldn't complain, because everyone tells me how good I have it. Lots of other people have been laid off or can't find a job in the first place. Besides, I have good benefits here."
Okaaayyyy...... yes you should be be happy for a job let alone a good job and others do have it hard. But, just because you have a good job or work at a good company, doesn't mean it's good for you. In fact, if you're constantly daydreaming of something else, having a good job can be dangerous. A lot of time a "good job" that you don't like can keep you from a big life.
What makes sense today, doesn't necessarily mean it will make sense on another; a job full of promise at one time can lose its luster. In these situations, pretending its "all good" is usually the wrong answer. If you're frustrated, it's time to make a change. Even if it's a good company or organization that has treated you well, you're not helping them by giving less than your best.
Aside from remaining stagnant and dragging along, you will find yourself in a good job that no longer meets your needs, there can only be two options:
1. Look for a way to bring the joy back to the good job.
2. Look for a way to say goodbye to the good job.
You might think that leaving is hard (and it will be). It's always easier to leave if it were a bad job. Then the situation would become urgent and you'd do everything you could to get out as soon as possible. But, because it's good enough, you stick around.
That's why, one way or another, something has to change.
So ask yourself
Have you ever found yourself doing something you don't like or even hate?
and.. What did you do?

It was tough at first, but it seems that it eventually paid off, or for some, likely to do so in the the future. Even though we have no guarantees, we knew what we were doing when we made the choice. And so we went for it. We ignored family and friends, followed our hearts and we had no regrets. We took that leap and I'm glad we did.
We challenge the status quo, live life on our own terms and leap when others are too afraid to do the same.
No Grits No Glory
