On April 1, 2017, I had the pleasure of witnessing an intense performance by Hip Hop Artist and Entrepreneur from the Westside JP Cali Smoov (hold up those dubs). A phenomenal experience; the entire RiverRock Lounge was lit. John Paul Misquez (JP Cali Smoov) is keeping West Coast hip-hop music alive; not that it was ever dead. His passion is just as present as any past West Coast artist.
JP Cali Smoov’s performance of his hit single, Already Hit It soared at RiverRock in Studio City. Especially relevant were guest performances who were themselves unique. JP Cali Smoov is a leading man in the ever-changing Hip-Hop industry. A champion battle rapper, earning a Lead Role, in a Reality Web Show hosted, starring, and produced By Snoop Dogg called “Take Flight On Site” Snoopadelic Films.
JP Cali Smoov has his feet planted to success, not only as a hip-hop artist, actor, aspiring clothing designer with launching his Black Sheep Club clothing line, transforming the game his way. The demeanor of the crowd was consequently outstanding. It took me to a new level of admiration for the hip-hop movement. Sometimes people think of hip-hop artists in a negative aspect, but that is the farthest from the truth.
JP Cali Smoov most of all is an exceptional overcomer. He spent his early childhood in and out of the foster care system in Los Angeles until moving to Chicago as a teenager. A fatal car crash took the life of his two best friends making him the lone survivor. After heart surgery from a torn aorta, broken arm, and rigorous rehabilitation he made hip-hop music a passion. Most noteworthy, that alone should inspire anyone to take charge of life. JP Cali Smoov turned his negativity into positivity. It seems he found the ability, determination, and aspiration to move forward. Hence, watch and see what he does next.

I relax in knowing what I can achieve by owning my spiritual truth, see my life goes in and out of balance. Movement displaces my thoughts, the agony of defeat I try to resist, the depths that reach the cluttered, noisy slice of time are annoyances. I stare down the different ground below my feet as if I am standing on a tumbleweed, prancing back and forth. I am in transition, feeling like everything I fear is next to me. My stomach is in knots, I ask myself, “How to pray will help me endure?’
Then in a tailspin, I know my restlessness begins as a result of putting pride aside. My mind tells me to believe; these disastrous endeavors cannot destroy the fabric of my soul. It’s time to exercise my brain and speak with dire sense and sensibility. Enchantment tales intense in my thoughts are more profound because the elastic of the bodies’ morsels and follicles remain intact. Consequently, my heart embraces excellent and valuable information.
What do I believe? A higher power or myself. I think of the higher power within me. Life can be limitless, so perpetuate the power of positivity. Therefore, feel the room, now fill the room with enriching devices, leave yourself little notes telling about how great you are. Second of all, take advice from people who are useful to you, begin to laugh out loud and when asked, just state in a beautiful diction, “I am happy.”
My temperament cannot take the time
