Trends of Phoenix

Last week I made a thread in our T.R.O.Y. forum after viewing a video of Joaquin Phoenix being questioned about his aspiring rap career. To my surprise he really knows his shit and if you let the video stream you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. But what was really mindblowin’ was his comments at the 1:43 mark. Not only do I have to give this man props for knowing about Trends, but it almost makes me like him that much more of an actor too.

A few years back our homies at Oh Word wrote a mini-review on Trends, so those who aren’t as hip as Joaquin might want to check it out first. More importantly T.R.O.Y. forum members Kimani and Jaz laced us with some goodies to share. We hear Grapevine is now an actor living in L.A., M.O.L. is still making beats and Nastee joined the corporate world but word is they’re baaaaaaaaaaaaack! – Philaflava
