Brian Polar – “DEATH ON A RAIL” [Marvel the GR8 freestyle]

Gentleman and ladies beware. This track is not for a man who is a gentle or a woman who is a lady. It’s for the monster deep inside each and every one of us waiting to spawn.

Brian POLAR has been on a tear, no achilles. He has been in such a zone that he can’t do anything but share with the world. So be prepared for more and more releases such as this fine dark treat POLAR dropped this week.

“Death on a Rail” features Marvel the GR8 gracing his freestyle over the triumphant street stomping production of POLAR’s genius. The bad dreams side of the San Jose native grabs your ears with a sudden grasp. Indulge yourselves but don’t hurt yourselves with this grimey gem.

New #RANDOM single – #MyHeart – MARVEL THE GR8

Citizens!

It is the month of love.

But shouldn’t love be something we utilize all the time?

The collective was thinking of a way we can remind each and every type of citizen about love, but in a way that went along with something each and every one of them had.

BOOM. a heart.

It’s so simple. But perfect. All we have to do is remember each and every person has a simple <3 along with you. The GR8 thing about it is, all you have to do is show the simple <3 some love each and every time you encounter one.

Remind yourself in every way you can. Look at someone’s <3 literally if you have to. Careful son, babes in these streets got titties.

But really.

Even if you have to look at their <3 and and tell yourself “It’s #myHeart”, do it. It’s real.

You won’t let yourself down :D

Look out for how we are showing what represents the things we love and care for this week cohesive with #myHeart

Right now, dive into the Brian Polar produced track where tales of the <3 are told.

Below you can download Marvel the GR8’s rendition of  “         …#myHeart…      “

Gangsta Chef Showcase: Cajun Style Shrimp N’ Grits

What up yall! I am super excited to share my first Gangsta Recipe with everyone. For those who do not know about me…you better ASK SOMEBODY!! jk. But I am the Gangsta Chef. I prepare #GR8 meals for the #RANDOMcitizens gang and help them not overdose on fast food. We want to promote a healthy and Gangsta lifestyle so follow along for some delicious and unique recipes that will satisfy you in more ways than one. (Again, you better ask about me!)

But anyways, our first Gangsta Recipe is Cajun Style Shrimp N’ Grits. This is one of my personal favorite meals because all of the different flavors and textures in this dish! A close personal friend requested the meal one evening and I did some Gangsta research, gathered the ingredients, and dove in.! It is also perfect comfort food for a chilly winter evening. (I know we are in Cali, but it gets kinda cold out here too.!) 

All there is left to say is my Gangsta Tip of the Day:

Do not forget to have fun when cooking. Maybe play some music.

(here is @MARVELtheGR8’s tunes.)

Gangstas like to have fun, too!

Ingredients.

4 cups water
Salt and pepper
1 cup stone-ground grits (or Quick Grits work just as well)
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (s/o to tillamook)
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
6 slices bacon, chopped
4 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 cup thinly sliced scallions or green onions (for the non-sophisticated folk)
1 large clove garlic, minced

Prep Work (slight work):

Slice and dice all of your fresh ingredients (parsley, scallions or garlic).

Be careful with the blade, we don’t want the Gangsta Chef to get back to his old ways.

Directions.

Bring water to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Add grits and cook until water is absorbed, about 20 to 25 minutes. If you are using Quick Grits, those only take about 5 to 10 minutes from start to finish. Remove from heat and stir in butter and cheese.

gooey, cheesy, delicious grits…

Rinse shrimp and pat dry. Fry the bacon in a large skillet until browned; drain well. In grease, add shrimp. Cook until shrimp turn pink. Add lemon juice, chopped bacon, parsley, scallions and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes.

so much bacon.

gangstas don’t dance, we saute’.

Spoon grits into a serving bowl. Add shrimp mixture and mix well. Serve immediately.

It is all in the wrist.

pre-bacon. 

I like to squeeze a some additional lemon on my bowl to add some extra freshness.!

It is always important to put your own personal twists on recipes so do not be afraid to spice things up a little bit.

Like all #GR8 artists, I adopted this recipe from the infamous Bobby Flay and wonderful Martha Nesbit.

Thank you to both Chefs and thank you to all who enjoyed the post!

Til next time,

Keep it Gangsta.

RANDOM Recreation presents: MUSEUM HOP Recap

random-rec222 copy

It was a hangover filled morning but donuts and blunts made the commute semi bearable. The collective arrived at the CaliforniaScienCenter fresh off some edibles, for a dip into the world of HANDS ON interaction. Marvel the GR8 couldn’t wait to hit the gift shop and cop a NASA fitted hat. But that ain’t happening. Wait your turn, son.

Fresh off the turnstile, a little girl yacks all over the floor making shit really real. Didn’t know what to expect. Nowadays on some 2015 madness, kids can handle a lot, so the anticipation was heightened. The space exhibit was first and we really hit some real shit. Yes, the OFFICIAL shitter, that was onboard, floating turds around, was right before us. An authentic NASA toilet. We also saw some HUGE tires that are about 20 million miles past the warranty. Along the way, Brian Polar was satisfied to salute THEE first black man in space.

impossible to learn on empty stomach. s/o to DAILY DONUTS!

IMG_2804

this thing is just really cool. 

IMG_2725salute to MR. Polar, stay high my friend.

After an expected Thai Tea break, the Ecosystems were hit up where we saw schools of fish, how tides make entire worlds react and at one point really questioned its beauty, thinking it was all 3D animation screens. Oh the irony when we were able to view the same ecosystem from BELOW and stand under the water environment and look UP! That’s when the edibles took the HOP to new heights.

MARVELtheGR8 knows life is better with ThaiTea.!

IMG_2744

“I always wondered what 188,000 gallons of water looked like…”

We hit a corner and were amazed to find a 10 foot ICE WALL where people were leaving their marks with fingerprints deep into the layers of the display. We learned absolutely nothing from the giant frozen rock being there but it was a chill (haha) experience. Lunch was next and we ate that slap museum food after convincing TEEZY, who was terrified by the $9 quesadilla price tag. On the way out was the Rose Garden, which was quite a scene as well, even though they closed it off to the public like it was Area51.

just spreading our germs with everyone possible.

IMG_2760just a few random citizens. 

BONUS FOOTY!! See what happened at the ROSE garden here!

After trying to mob to the Natural History Museum, only to be HORRIFIED by the drastic news that it wasn’t free 99, we went back to the CaliforniaScienCenter [yea it’s really spelled like that on the side of the damn building]. We followed a mom who had her kid on a leash, trusting her guidance to get our stoney baloney’s back to safety. We were going to hit another INTERACTIVE area when POLAR was on his way to a hands on section and saw a little girl sneeze her knees all over it. That was the end of the day.

best fwiends selfie. we look so happy…

DBA256 PHOTOS w/ GR8, bPOLAR & SLAPTIME

Check out these photos from last Friday at the DBA256 in Pomona.

Brian Polar was the head honcho on the 1’s and 2’s with more groove then your momma’s disco fever days.

Los Angeles rapper Wriott delivered a unique performance to start off the evening of live acts.

Pomona boys Marvel the GR8 and LeeBoySlap ended the night with a treat for their hometown as Random Citizens and Limitless Lifestyle Co delivered another free successful event once again as the summer counts down its final days.
