Thankful (Playa: Grateful)



Thanksgiving is all about family and being around the ones you love, so I thought it was only right that I stop by SMIM this morning to visit what I've come to consider my other family.

When it comes to Static, I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful for the opportunity to get this site started in the first place so we could continue his legacy. I'm thankful Static has brought together a community of such great people who I can interact with on a daily basis; heck a lot of you I even call friends now. I'm thankful for Static's music because he's left us with some amazing songs that I'm so happy I was able to hear. Finally, I'm thankful because I know he's looking down on all of us, and even know I never had the chance to meet the man, from everyone who has graciously taken the time through interviews and such to talk about him as a person, I know he guided us through the rough patches we've had here on the site and allowed us to continue.

I know we've slowed down a bit since the EP, but we will be picking up again very soon and have a lot more content coming. If you have a chance to visit the site over the next few days and read this, let us know what you're thankful for. Finally, I leave you with a Playa song that just about sums it up.

    I'm thankful for all of you that help to continue the legacy of the man I love and miss deeply. I'm also thankful that he continues to guide us admins of the site through all of our trails and tribulations. There isnt a day that goes by that I don't stop by to visit. I love you all. For this I am humble! Rest In Love Stephen Ellis Garrett.....

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...




Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
