I think I first met Suaze from my friend Rashid Qandil. Which we need to get Rashid on here as well. I was looking for a new barber and Rashid had a fade that was smooth as silk and flawless. Rashid connected me up with Suaze and I found out he was in school to become a full time barber, but was working a corporate job still at the time. If my memory serves me correctly, which it does not always do, Suaze was just cutting part time on the weekends at that point. This is why I need to go back to writing down daily notes about my life. I remember most everyone I meet, but who knows how long the brain will hold that info so I will start writing notes again. Back to the post about Suaze. He and I just instantly connected. Besides being an gifted barber, he is a music producer, beat maker, musician, and family man. We had so many instant connections and good lord his musical knowledge runs deeper than the core of this earth. Suaze has turned me onto so many great albums and musicians around the world and especially here in Birmingham like Love Moor and Shaun Judah just to name a few. Suaze might possibly be from another planet. Thank you Suaze for always being a part of my family and the Club Duquette family. I am forever grateful for your friendship.
