At ThaWilsonBlock Magazine, we find local heritage fascinating! For our 4-year anniversary issue on February 10th, 2017, we wanted to try something new.

I’ve been walking Pasadena streets for over 15 years and began to take notice of the different landmark districts throughout town. It gave me a sense of belonging. Pride.

Afroman spoke on how he joined the Eight Tray Gangsters in his neighborhood to get respect, but it was when he moved to a rival Rolling 60’s school (Horace Mann) that he got into a bit of trouble.

You probably didn’t hear too much about it…if any at all. Regardless of tha fact, Mistah Wilson led a 23mile Walk effort from San Pedro to 1st in Los Angeles. Joining him was fellow artist and entrepreneur Dominic Poole, who was the X factor in many of these extensive walks for causes, and Mina Wildcard, a local poet from University Park near USC. It was the end of July 2016. Yea, that means the Sun was kicking our butt. Unhindered, we met at Fig & 7th in Downtown Los Angeles. We caught the blue line to Long Beach and another … Continue reading Mistah Wilson walks all of Figueroa Street to demonstrate Courage (Street Sign Photography)
