A couple weeks back on February 22nd a great man passed away: Charles Ray Jenkins, Sr. aka L-One. L-One was ProHoeZak’s dad and was also involved in making of “The Cadillac Man” album as he performed track 5 on the album: KZAG Interlude. He was a man involved in music deeply and from his service on March 5th, 2010 in Oakland one could only see how he touched and influenced so many to follow their musical paths. Story after story were told on how L helped people along with their musical dreams, inspired many and carried people when they were down and had thoughts of stopping their pursuits. I just wanted to say thank you to you “Pops” for your contribution to my project, and more importantly for the words you shared with me on the personal level through our talks and interactions. You were a wise man and a great soul!
Rest In Peace Charles Ray Jenkins, Sr. aka L-One

So “The Cadillac Man” album got wrapped a couple days ago… I met up with Rico in L.A. and we knocked out the final tasks on the list… I’m just on the listening tip now and making sure I am happy with the finished product… we have spent a lot of time working on it to get it right and it has been an experience I have learned a lot from… I’ve had many setbacks on the way to finishing this project and many times felt like I shouldn’t even put it out because I was so frustrated with the progress or lack thereof on the whole thing… I started making this album with Gyre and lost all of my tracks due to computer issues, then I had to get all of the raw tracked out instrumentals redone by him, was starting to collab with my good friend EMPera and his production, and then had him unfortunately taken from me and the rest of this world as he passed Father’s Day 2008 (Rest In Peace good friend 8/14/81-6/15/08, I don’t even wanna get into that right now) and then I networked with Rico at Apocalypze Recording Studios to bring this project to fruition even though he moved to Burbank slightly before finishing the project, so I had to wait until his availability up here in The Bay… he has been a mentor to me and has taught me a lot through this entire process… I wanted to say thank you to all who have had a hand in helping me with “The Cadillac Man“… EMPera, Rico, Skooob, Gyre, MysterE, ProHoeZak, DaMost, Deez Dinero, Soul Purpose Leone, Chino, Attilary, L-One, Swizzle, Caleo, Eratk, oneSHOTmedia – Mike Ho, and to all my family and friends who have supported me with the process and who have made it out to my shows… you are all priceless and too many to name… it is coming… “The Cadillac Man“… are you ready?!
