Hello my name is…Thavius Beck

The reason that you’re reading about me is…because of my awesome afro... and because I make music, and teach others how to make music as well

I love it when people…enjoy their life
I hate it when people…cause you to enjoy your own life less
If you ever see me walking down the street…feel free to say whats up and burn one withcha boy!
My most notable run-in with the law…had more of these than I care to remember... I guess getting arrested for weed possession while on tour with Saul Williams the day of our show in Washington D.C. opening up for Talib Kwali was pretty notable
If I had to say sorry it would be because…if i had to say sorry it would have something to do with me breaking someone's heart
