“.. Mom? Dad? I’m no longer the boy you’ve used to seeingI’ve changed a lot, plus I’ve grown to hate every human beingMy mood swings have now turned my dreams into gruesome scenesNow I’m doing things I don’t normally doWhen illusions seem to be the only pleasures I can gain – Heck, if I was sane I’d put down the mic and say fuck it I’ll never rise to fame But with the wicked records I contain, I could probably jeopardize your nameNo lovey-dovey let’s ignite the flame if you’re lucky you survive the pain ..”




I thought this was pretty sick, Funk Volume released this prelude for whats to come from their camp in 2012. For an independent organization like FV, with no money or hand outs from the majors – they’ve come a very LONG way on their own blood sweat and tears. Its gotta feel amazing guys, hat tip to the whole FV team. Special S/O to Dame, this mans gonna be a problem to every MAJOR. #salute.5ABI KINGS


A picture from my instagram taken last nite at the House of Blues, Sunset – Wale absolutely shut the whole place down. I havent seen an entertainer keep it that real all night in a while – from drinkin on stage, to taking blunt breaks and keepin in tradition doing a ‘Fresh Check’. Pusha-t was in the house, Meek Mill did his thing – Los Angeles jelwer Ben Baller even tossed away a 5k chain into the audience while caught up in the moment lol. The shit that makes nights memorable.



Recently HOPSIN sat down with Young Jack Thriller for an exclusive interview for THISIS50.COM (50 cents very successful website). He goes on to discuss his youtube success, his Beef with Tyler the Creator, rappers now a days that act ‘too extra’, his New album and many other things – oh and He’s rockin 5ABI KINGS clothing !!

HOPSIN is making some serious noise this year, he was recently featured on Tech N9ne’s new album along side B.O.B. on my favorite track ‘Am i Psycho’. HOPSIN jumps in on the second verse, while B.O.B. is up third but goes for ODD Futures throat (still throwing disses for the lines Tyler dropped on YONKERS).

Big ups to HOPSIN & the whole Funk Volume camp for showing love.

5ABI KINGS Get Accustom to the Lifestyle.


Its been an absolutely crazy second half to 2011 & we’ve got only 3 months (less) before we hit 2012 !! Its never been more clear – the focus and drive this year has definitely set the pace for the new year.

New year, new ambition = new hustle.

We are in the works to bring 5ABI KINGS to Canada, not just thru online sales but a permanent fixed location in Toronto. Canada has shown our brand tremendous love and support from the time we kick started and had just like 10 fans MAX. So it was only right that we get something jumpin out there asap, i cant dip into to much detail at the moment, but understand that its happening and will be up and running SOON.

While still on the topic of T.dot (Toronto) our fam, good friend and affiliated hip hop artist GINZ is opening for YMCMB’s TYGA in December – we are looking to be up there for that show, again details are tight lipped, we’ll try to let everyone know of our visit as soon as we get a better look into our schedule for the end of the year.

One of my favorite Holidays is Halloween, i  mean candy, half naked women runnin around dressed in costume and an abundance of alcohol – what more really could you ask for from a Holiday ?

it was only about time before you saw a 5ABI KINGS ‘Halloween’ project. We got together with the very pretty Juliette Casillas, called up a few friends and got this thing cookin. I reached out to Brandon of Brandon|David to shoot a few pictures of Juliette, hired the talented Fabiola Lopez for make up and enlisted a good friend Noiseyone’s talents and BAM this project is about ready to drop – again details are minimal but i promise you, it will be worth the wait. Below is a teaser trailer for the upcoming project.

Expect a couple new videos to drop soon, the camp is looking untouchable. We are working with Alyssa Kipper on a new film, you may remember her from our ‘Finest’ feature from Venice Beach, Ca – and quiet possibly building a new venture with a talented individual we met this weekend at the HOPSIN performance at the Key Club in Hollywood. Oh and if you were at the show – you saw HOPSIN doin his thing on stage fitted in 5ABI KINGS ‘Relentless’ tee. We’ve got some video from the event we’ll throw up later tonite .. BIG UPS to HOPSIN, DAME, FUNK VOLUME & SWIZZZ – you guys are changing the industry and for the better, wish you all much success, stay killen em.

.. on that note lots of love to the whole camp, everyone on the team, every individual affiliated, everyone rockin our clothing – all the fans. #ThankYou



incase you missed the Battle, you can catch it anytime at http://www.yowie.com/show/4vv – the show ended with over 3600 views.

If you haven’t seen it – the host also President of ‘Funk Volume’  Dame Ritter briefs the contestants before randomly selecting two contenders to go head to head. He a lots each mc a minute a piece – they do their thing and Dame goes to the chat room (still all on the same screen which is fly) takes their opinion into consideration – makes a decision till you have the Last Mc Standing.

Sponsored by 5ABI KINGS.

Hat tip to HOPSIN, SWIZZ & Dame for all the support.


LOL – this was actually pretty funny. ‘Official OZ Hip Hop’ out of Australia caught up with HOPSIN while he was touring out there and got him involved in their ‘Food Day’ antics.

Big ups to HOPSIN for rockin 5ABI KINGS clothing while on tour, i appreciate the support.
