So... I am finally back from a long 5 week stint in London working for NDubz.

One of my biggest musical influences has passed...I have no words....
Man... it's 2:45am... just finished 3 days in the studio with Mr Wu, and what a 3 days! I was looking forward to these sessions as I felt I had some really great ideas for Van Ness.
