I just got home from a 5 week tour hitting Osaka and Tokyo Japan, Bali Indonesia, and the western half of the United States promoting my crew's (Crown City Rockers) new release (*The day after forever!) I had a great time but I'm really happy to be back home in the bay area. But day 2 of being back a report came out sighting Oakland as the 3rd most dangerous city in the U.S. and has lots of folks focusing on the negatives and while some of the points may be true I offer a flipside to a city I love.
Check this video for "Oakland" produced by my homegirl and general genius of a woman Kat Ouano and shot and directed by John Coyne. I hope this finds you well.
