Classic Haz Freestyle

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This morning I found myself reminiscing on some good times I had being a part of the PayUp Game team. Although I'm not one of the rappers in the group, I do feel as though I have a role to play nonetheless. Early last year, Jae Mouf(Jose) and Haz(Andre) gave me the privilege of being in charge of PayUp Skate, which consisted of myself, Matt Fabian, Sean Howell, and any PayUp member who wanted to skate. It was a humbling opportunity, and we had some great times. Things with PayUp Skate sort of died down late last summer- due to conflicting work schedules, annoyance with the Florida heat, etc.

One of the most memorable moments with PayUp skate was captured by Mouf on a digital camera - hence the low quality. I hit a beat (supposed to be Q-Tip - Vibrant Thing) on the trunk of my old Honda Civic, while Andre spit a quick freestyle, and also announced that he would battle Plies for $10,000 if given the opportunity. Til this day, I'm not sure if Andre was serious, but it was hilarious!!!

I know plenty of Andre's fans haven't seen this, so I'm posting it for y'all and myself. I know you'll enjoy.

Hope this video provokes your thoughts!
