just arrived in to LA!! gonna shoot a music video with Selena Gomez and William H. Macy!!! what?! yup.. TOTES i say. we're doing one of the Rudderless jams. it's called "Hold On" and was written by Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus who wrote a ton of sweet music for the film. Selena and i first sang it together back in February at our Rudderless party during Sundance. Since then, the demo got leaked which actually isn't my voice. now im out here so we can hit the studio and make a cinematic memory of it - mace directing of course! other Rudderless cats might join in on the fun. we'll seeeeee! i'll keep youz kidz posted on our little creation. xoxo 

Rudderless Movie Trailer August 14 2014, 0 Comments

today, iTunes revealed the movie trailer for Rudderless! Rudderless is about a grieving father who reconnects with his deceased son through music. i know... sounds heavy, right? well, it is... but it's very sweet and charming. many of you have been asking what my involvement was. did i do music for it? the short answer is no. i actually ACTED in it! like really acted. lines 'n' all. it is a very music based film and yes, i performed and through some BK nugs in there, but this project wasn't about me doing music. it was about a story that moved me so much that i decided to do something i've never done before and immerse myself in a character and be that person for a moment in time, in front of the camera. and shit man, it was a total blast. i will explain more about how this all came to be around the time it hits theaters on October 17th. until then, see if you can spot me in this here trailer. *hint* remember when i died my hair black? big love my peeps. bk
