ETERNAL L.A.

From Lalo ... 40 oz saludos to all the Brown Kingdomeros!

It is real cool that vatos from all over Califas and nationwide are hitting up this forum.

I'm directing this to those in particular who call or have called LOS ANGELES home at some point or another. Growing up in the "LOS" has always been a Badge of Honor for myself wherever I have lived and am sure it has been for others who have moved to other places in this country. Everywhere that I have gone, people have differing impressions of my hometown, everything from the land of palm trees and gangs, to corrupt cops and riots. Shit, I live here and I know better; those certain things about this city that DEFINE it as it is?
You know what I mean?

For me LA is going to Tommy's at 3 in the morning after being at kicking borlotes.
LA is the Belmont Tunnel (RIP).
LA is carnes asadas at Elysian Park.
LA is drinking Thunderbird under a bridge at the LA river.
LA is buying firme Ben Davis at the Santee callejones.
LA is unaturally big burritos at el Tepeyac in the East LA.
LA is Radio-Tron for you old school cabrones!

So many other things, like those time cherished places in los LA Barrios.
I use to live in the Vermont/Pico area and use to run into Conejos all the time there. Major hang out there. In my beloved Pacoima back in the days, tierra de nacimiento, we use to kick it at Hansen Dam, getting Cheech and Chonged thanx to the two Ps and a B, the Pacoima Piru Bloods. Those fools had connections.

LOS ANGELES A BADGE OF HONOR INDEED!
