So this week end I was looking for a great time, as usual, and got an invitation by a very good friend of mine who had tickets for a sex show. My reply: « Hell to the yeah! »
Now this event is for the ones that are very comfortable with their sexuality. No for the weak or the type that are more traditional with their fantasies.
I got the see the usual: sex toys, lingeries, beautiful models and some. But what I also got to see is the other side of the moon as I would call it. That 50 shades of Grey they be trying to make pretty I saw the REAL side of it.
Sado masochism, Moulin Rouge type of performance and more weird stuff that I can’t display out of respect of people who wants to stay private I got to experience to see if that could be my cup of tea… Not for now LOL.
For those that came, hope you found what you we’re looking for. For those who wanted but we’re scared to be seen… Let’s all go next year 😉
Afin de pouvoir éduquer nos auditeurs sur la politique nous avons pris la decision d’être plus present dans les événements des partis. Dernièrement j’ai participe a une réunion d’Alexandre Leduc, depute de la circonscription d’Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
« Il faut donner au immigrants plus d’opportunités financières et non des stabilites de pauvreté ». Voila le message que je veux transmettre aux politiciens. Et le moyen de le faire est de me presenter a eux et partager mon idéologie.
En esperant pouvoir changer les choses ou au moins apporté l’idée du changement.
For the first part of a new webserie, I will introduce you to the HipHop museum. Created by the Forefathers of the culture, this new option will educated the new and make the old reminisce. Get familiar as we will make sure that the city gets involved as well in advancing the culture.
Life. Sometimes it gets hard, sometimes it gets even harder. And here comes depression…
Unfortunately to some of us, the only solution we see to ease the pain is taking our own life. The signs are not always seen by friends and family and sometimes it is too late to help.
Having gone through it and thank God he survived to tell, OGCuicide has decided to make it his journey to educated the people about how you can see the sun after the rainy days.
Ladies and gentlemen: OGCuicide
1- First of all, thank you for helping us understand depression and suicide. Can you tell us what happened that made you have a depression?
My life starts off with me and my older brother being abandoned in an apartment for many days until social services and the authorities entered the apartment and took us both. We was separated and placed in different foster homes. His mother went through the steps and got my older brother back. I don’t call her my mother because she never came back and got me so the foster home I was in Mrs price ended up adopting me and loving me like her own son. Growing up in Compton you live a street life so I was Gang Banging and bringing drama to the house and I was 16 at the time and Mrs Price’s daughters ended up kicking me out. So the streets is where I lived homeless slanging dope, robbing, stealing… Whatever to survive in these streets.
2- At what point did it became unbearable for you to the point where you started having suicidal thoughts?
When I was actually kicked out the house at 16 from there on I was depressed based off my past life. And the older I got it seems like the worst it got. I was 22. Today I felt like there was no reason for me in life.
3- Can you walk us through that day where you decided to take your own life?
It was December 31, 1991. I woke up that day and I woke up angry, mad at the world, mad at myself and didn’t know why. I kept having flashbacks of me sleeping in cars, living in the rain and just my whole lifestyle send gotten to me. I remember pulling a gun out and I click the hammer back. My little homies asked me what was I doing and I replied to them I can’t carry on like this, that I don’t wanna live anymore. They replied « what are you doing? what are you doing big Homie? » Then I put the gun to my temple and I pulled the trigger. I remember it got so bright, my eyes wasn’t able to take the light and moments later it got dark and I blacked out.
4- What made you realized you made a mistake and should fight life?
I don’t really consider it a mistake because I have no regrets in life. Everything I went through made me who I am today and I never knew that God had plans for me in the future and used me as an example. He spared my life for a reason and that reason was to be a Messenger for Him to show people never give up.
5- The road to recovery. How did you get help?
After the incident they have me seeing a psychiatrist and was giving me a medication called Sinequan. This particular medication make me feel worse than I already was feeling and felt the day I attempted suicide. So I stopped taking the medication and started to feel better. I was still homeless at the time and since 1987 I’ve always done music so I contacted a good friend of mine name Lee who did Beats and I told him I was going to start writing music about my life. He gave me some beats on cassette tapes to write to and I started writing about my life and the music that I was writing was real life: self experienced, emotions, blood, sweat and tears. It became my medication my recovery. It gave me hope not just for me but also to share my life. To give out hope.
6- Do you believe that us Black people are afraid to express to our love ones that we need help?
Yes. In no way it’s an embarrassment to share you need help, especially when you don’t know who to share it with there is some pet care. But for the most part there are those who don’t care and look at people as a joke. Like myself for instance. I was a heavy gang Banger so for me to come to one of the big Homies and say I’m considering suicide I felt he would have laughed at me. Feeling this way will keep you depressed and you will keep all the feelings bottling up.
7- Your music is very powerful and speak a strong message. How do you want the people to receive the message in it?
When people listen to my music however they are feeling if they’re depressed and stressed out I really want them to listen to my music and see I’ve walked in their shoes. If I haven’t walked in the exact shoes I most definitely have walked in similar shoes and I want them to listen to my music and see that there is hope, that life gets better. No-one never really knows when life will get better. It’s almost like playing the lottery, no one will ever know when they’re going to hit it big but when they do it’s amazing and the feeling is priceless that is the same way life goes. You maybe going through something today but you never know what tomorrow brings. Tomorrow brings better days. You don’t want to give up because you do not want to miss out on greatness and seeing stress leave your life and you feel better about life
8- If people want to get more familiar with your journey and your music at the same time, How do they get at you?
Anyone that would like to know more about me follow me on Instagram @OGCUICIDE my direct phone number is on my page. So just push call or you can even DM me.
We would like to thank OGCUICIDE for this amazing interview. It is important for the people to know that there is help out there and that life gets hard but the road to be smiling again can be reached with the proper help and surroundings.
On a snowy December 13th night, Peezee launched the release of his photobook, « CAFE », at Seasalt & Ceviche bar in the old port.
Many supporters and fans we’re there to see the man behind the art. I, myself, made sure to be present as Peezee greeted people and shared stories.
In this interview, we chopped it up with Peezee on his latest accomplishement. Ladies and Gentlemen: Peezee The Director.
1- What made you decide to release a photobook?
Anytime I would visit a city where I would direct a music video for an artist/label I would end up taking pictures of the locations to show them during the scouting process. I was posting most of these pictures on Instagram and the demand from people for actual prints were increasing as my IG account was getting noticed more and more by people liking this dramatic type of photography. This past summer I stumbled on a book publisher and approached them to see what the process was. It ended up being way simpler than I though it would be so I tried it with my 1st book entitled California Love!
2- How did you pick and chose which pictures would make the final cut?
For this book I wanted pictures with a darker vibe, even the ones in plain sunshine. I wanted something super uniform that would look more refined and could fit on any coffee table… I wanted it to look more « grown up« if I can say. As I was working on some of my recent pictures, I noticed that most of them had a brownish or coffee tones to it. Then came the title « Café« .
3- What is one of your most memorable place you shot at?
My everyday favorite place to shoot in California is Laguna Beach, I go there 3 to 4 days a week just to shoot and chill by myself. I have directed multiple music videos for major labels there since 2009. But weekly personal shoots have become a therapeutic need for me when I’m in Cali. The dopest and livest location I have visited though was the sand dunes in Death Valley National Park… I took the trip there with my friend Viranova, an R&B singer from Orange, and we just had the best of times just driving up there! It’s about 4 hours from L.A. but to get there you gotta go through some of the craziest landscapes and scenic routes I had ever seen… Looks like Mars on many occasions… They actually shot many Star Wars scenes in the region… It’s a must see! I will be back there in the spring to direct a music video for a Bollywood artist!
4- Being a professional director VS being a successful artists? Which one you love most?
I think it’s all connected. I couldn’t be a successful director without knowing how music works and what an artist goes through in his mind. When I was 20 years old, the artist thing was without a doubt something I needed as it was a direct mean of expression that I needed in life. Now that I’m older and don’t feel the need to express myself and perform for people, the director part fits me way more. The photography part even fills my heart with joy more than the director job these days!
5- If you could share one advice to someone who would want to follow you footstep, what is the one rule that he/she has to follow from jump?
There’s only 1 rule that I teach all my kids in Cali and here in Montreal. NEVER STOP WORKING. For each year that you stop, whether it is because of personal problems or anything, it pushes you back 3 years in your professional development. In a business that moves so quick, 3 years in entertainment is 10 years in real life. Never wait for the perfect opportunity, CREATE IT!!! Money means nothing in this game. Mobsters try to pay their way in all the time but hard work and knowledge of how it works. Experience is key, there are no shortcuts for that, you gotta live it and it can’t be bought!!!!
We would like to thank Peezee for this exclusive interview and congratulations on the launch.
