Nothing like an unexpected event that will lead to an impromptu episode of #CampFromThePort. I got a chance to meet Cloak The Scribe through mutual social media hip-hop lovers and we’ve remained solid and respectful ever since. I was truly honored and appreciative to be tapped to lend a verse for his upcoming project. Shout to Pots and Pans Audio for making me sound pretty incredible!
We talk music industry and the grind of a true Independent artist doing it all dolo and spending the money to stay afloat. I also find out if Cloak is down to collaborate and sign someone from the 815. And if you listen closely, you’ll get to hear some exclusive audio of what Cloak has been cooking up this quarter.
I can’t give it all away now, but look out for my feature on Cloak’s upcoming project. The track is called “Wormhole”.

It’s cool to talk with other people who were the “only child”. A lot of 80’s babies grew up Latchkey and although our stories are similar, none are truly the same.
Every time I talk to Marcus, whether social media or in person, I love the memories, stories and ideology that he brings up in my mind. He was a “media guy” like I was, but through time and experience things changed. We talk about how basketball was he vehicle to get into ESPN and other media jobs, what made him step away from God and media and we talk our lives as latchkey children on part 1 of this Camp From The Port.
I grew up in Freeport, Illinois. A lot of information I personally needed, I wasn’t sure how to get it. I was just told learn computers because they were going to taking over the world.
I sit with one of my childhood friends and we try to hash out all of our thoughts, feelings, emotions and aspirations from 20 years ago.
