Quick Update: The Surprise Choice 4/11/13
What does it do? I hope it did what it does. If it didn’t do what it does don’t get did by what doesn’t get done.
For those who need a translation: Hey, how are you? I hope great. If not, just stay strong and things will get better.
Well, “Angels” won the vote for the free single, releasing May 3rd. Incandesio said it took 33% of the votes, while “K-love Vs. SPM” came in second with 27%. I’m still taken aback that the majority chose “Angels”, knowing it was a Christian song. I’m not saying that I thought you were devil worshippers, but you know what I mean. I’m not exactly known for Christian music.
In fact, this is the first of it’s kind on an SPM album. I hope you enjoy it.
Incandesio wrote me a letter, and it included some of your comments, and I’d like to respond to a few. I’ll do that now.

I just chose the first track because i want to hear Los destroy his compitition! And im guessing K-love can hold his own since he’s featured in the album All the tracks should be fire so ill take any of them. Cant wait till the album drops!
Response: I wouldn’t say that K-Love could hold his own, but he was definately entertaining. He called me everything from a “bitch” to “a skittle.” (Yeah, the candy.) He tried his best, but I think he knew what was going to happen to him. I guess some people like gettin abused by the Mojado. I don’t understand that enjoyment. I once freestyled against Rasheed, and I won’t do that again.
Let me say that there’s plenty of guys who can freestyle better than me, but K-Love was not one of them. The battle is fun to hear, though. I give K-Love props for sacrificing himself for the sake of entertainment. Even though he left the battle with his pride stripped away, his confidence trampled and his manhood in question, he tried.

OK my question is “do you think I’m dumb for putting ‘FREE SPM!’ on my knuckles? I don’t care what those haters say but wanna know what you think. They say I’m dumb cause I don’t know you on a personal level ...but I feel I do. even tho I never met you.
Response: Most times people get tattoos of things that mean something to them. My justice and freedom are important to you, so you expressed that. How can someone hate onwhat’s important to you? If they don’t like it, tell them to get their own tattoo that says, “I don’t like Cristoval’s ‘FREE SPM!’ tattoo.” Ya see, Players represent what they love, and haters represent what they hate on. So, as silly as it sounds to get a “hater tattoo”, that’s exactly what they do, anyway. They spend their time “tattooing” themselves with whatever they’re hating on. That’s a crazy-sad life, but their job is vital in strengthening those who operate with love. Use them for fuel, my brother. That’s what they’re here for.

I just want to hear an SPM song that doesn’t have Carloyn Rodriguez on the hook i find her singing annoying and she ruins the song 90% of the time. She was overused on The Last Chair Violinist she should have only been on Mexican Heaven and Are We Real nothing else. Now she is going to be on 7 more songs smh! Not looking forward to those. Hopefully SPM stops using her so damn much in future projects.
Response: Carolyn’s in the Dope House Family, and she’s our vocalist. Nobody tells the Black Eyed Peas, “Hey, what the fuck, Fergie is being overused!” What do you want me to do, tell Juan Gotti to sing the hooks? Have you ever heard his singing? Sounds like two sumo wrestlers making love.
But you know what’s crazy, Carolyn only sings two full hooks, an that’s on “The Poor Kids” and “To The Flame.” I don’t know why I said seven. I guess cause I’m so used to her singing the choruses. She does some partial stuff on “Till They Come”, “Angels”, and ad-libs. But if she were on seven hooks, I’d be just as happy. She’s Mexican Fergie gotdammit!
But I’ve heard this complaint before, and understand that The DHF is a group that’s for life, por vida. And I know what you’re thinking, but the answer is, no, you can not kill Carolyn. But do me a favor, give her another chance when you listen to The S.O.N. Listen to how she sprinkles dope on “Frustration” and “Till They Come.” That shit is priceless, man. The girl knows what to add, and how to add it, to purify a song. I can’t speak for her solo projects because I haven’t heard them, nor was I involved. But if she needs to be redeemed, let The S.O.N. be her redeemer, because she did the fool.
Matter a fact, here’s a quick sixteen for my girl:
Why you mad at Carolyn? Cause she isn't Marylynn?
cause she sound like Lucifer when Lucy's shooting heroin?
maybe she would care again if someone pulled her hair a bit
maybe it's them blue eyes, make her look American
when she comes to visit I be starin at her pair and then,
she just looks away, cause she see my Woody Harrelson
now she is embarrassed and she scootin back her chair an inch
while my shit is risin like a mothafuckin Paris bridge
now the fuckin air is thick, Why the fuck she wear that shit?
This should be a movie called "Night Nurse Meets Werewolf Dick"
Damn I jus went overboard, ate my words then ordered more
this shit sounds like horror or, somethin at the porno store
let me use your Ford Explorer, 'pologize from door to door
sorta like a borin tour, all the way to foreign shores
your the core, we the spine, fuck a book, I read ya mind
show up any time I want, but make sho I leave in time.....
I was gonna answer some more comments but I got sleepy.
Plus this is a quick update, so it’s only right that I make it quick. Agree? I figured you wouldn’t.
I’m still not sure where the snippet/single will be available, but I do know that it’s strictly a digital release. There will not be physical snippets like we did last time. I’ll write you more about everything concerning The S.O.N. as soon as I find out more.
Con Mucho Amor,
