The small memorial of candles on Sunset Avenue set up to commemorate the death of Kendrec McDade is gone. Flocks of supporters demanding justice no longer flank his parents, Kenneth McDade and Anya Slaughter.

On the first anniversary of his death today, the pain of losing their 19-yearold son remains. As do many unanswered questions. "There aren't too many people left who want to step up and demand justice," Kenneth McDade said Thursday as he fought back tears. Pasadena police officers Mathew Griffin and Jeffrey Newlen shot and killed Kendrec, a Citrus College student, on March 24, 2012. The officers believed he was an armed robbery suspect fleeing a crime scene.

But the 6-foot, 180pound former Azusa High School football standout was unarmed.

He’s this thinker, hard-worker but always refers to himself as a Hack not a writer. You know how some articles we read can be so boring but full of facts and information, right? Well, this guy puts down words like I’ve never seen before. I mean it doesn’t matter the topic, he writes about a variety of things. Some pieces are full of facts, stats quotes and some not, but always his bold personal opinion. That’s where he grabs you. He has this bold manly kind of manner that almost stands up off the page as you’re reading it. It can give the average unexpected readers that shock factor at first because you can darn near feel his strong but real honest presence standing next to you, his sense of “this is my view, my opinions and I’m saying it my way”!

"Herb & Warfare" is a definite classic and must-have mixtape on the underground circuit in Pasadena, Ca. We also love when an artist releases a project with 17 cuts or better (not to down the ones that don't). "Herb & Warfare" came with 20 tracks.

Davey Jones aka Nicky BeacHouses, who in reality goes by a number of aliases, released "Herb & Warfare"on November 19th, 2010. The fierce mixtape comes with features like HollyValens, The Kaptain, C.O.N.S, K.G. Eddie Lopez, Young Will & W.E.B.B. Dubois of Beasthood. Nicky BeacHouses proves his greatness on the mic by handling his own writing, rapping, singing, & production himself. The production on this mixtape is amazing! We were shocked at the original production that he used on this mixtape. His urban-related flow will touch a hood near you. If you're a street nigga and/or a Hip Hop fanatic in general, you gon’ feel this one.
