I’ve got good news and bad news, then more good news, then bad news, then…. I’ll just write the letter.
As always, I’m very happy to hear from Incandesio, and especially the pages of her site with all the encouraging comments and love and support. Incandesio is doing an exceptional job with the freedom movement, and concurrently strengthening our movement of dope music and unity. Let me remind you that I love you, and that I’m doing fine over here. Yes, I’m surrounded by the most dangerous men in prison, who won’t think twice about gutting you like a fish, but everyone I meet shows nothing but respect and well wishes. I did get into an argument (last week) with this one guy. The guard accidently gave me his “p.m. snack.” Ya see, some guys get evening snacks because their blood sugar could go low, and if that happens, they’ll need something to eat. Most guys have commissary, but they still like their p.m. snack. Well, I ate the sandwich because I thought the guard was just being nice. So, the guy who was supposed to get the sandwich was like, “Come on, man, I know you saw my cell number on the bag.”
I was like, “Nope, all I saw was cheese oozing out the side of the bread.”
He was like, “That’s fucked up, man.”
But the guard got him another one, thankfully. I sure would hate my gravestone to read, “Here lies Carlos Coy. He died for eating someone’s grilled cheese sandwich.”
Alright, the good news is that The S.O.N. is arguably my best album to date. The bad news is that it won’t make the August 21st release date. I didn’t know that Universal needs at least six months of preparation, after the mastered version is in their hands. I thought it was three months, so that’s why I set the date.
Guess what? There’s a female guard at my door with my tray. Lunch break!!!!! I’ll be right back………….
Alright, I’m back. Not too bad. Today we had meatloaf. Tasted just like grandma used to make, (when she was really drunk.) We also had navy beans, peas, mashed potatoes and my favorite, applesauce! Actually, all I ate was the meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
More good news is that we’re working on a snippet that gives you a taste of at least ten songs that are on The S.O.N. It will be out very, very soon. I’ll keep you updated as soon as I find out the exact date it will be available. As of now, Jaime “Pain” Ortiz is in the studio, getting it done.
That’s my update, but I’ve got tons more stuff to tell you, and I will through the “updates”, the “family” letters, Cold Forties and legal answers.
