When asked about his size, Chase Adams said "the height stuff doesn't mean anything." Chase Adams (12 years old in the video) had as big a 7th grade season at Chicago's Ariel Elementary Community Academy (Public school) as any player in the city. As a 7th grader, Adams led Ariel's 8th grade team (not previously known for its basketball team) to a 56-3 record in Chicago's Public League alongside fellow star Marquise "Kezo" Brown. No stats were kept at Ariel, but Chase seemed close to a double double (points/assists) whenever we were watching. Now, as an 8th grader, Adams and Brown will be looking to win the City 8th grade Championship. Currently 5 feet tall (at the start of 8th grade), weighing about 100 pounds, Adams is the quickest guard in Chicago and is widely considered one of the nation's top players in the Class of 2018. Some young players might be surprised to learn Chase's all-time favorite player is Bob Cousy (Boston Celtics 1950-63). Also, modeling his game after his favorite current point guards Chris Paul, Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo, Adams is poised for success. Not only does Adams model his game after the NBA's top young PG's, he draws inspiration from the way they continue to prove their doubters wrong. Here are some Chase Adams basketball highlights from Chicago public school Ariel Elementary Community Academy's 2012-2013 season as well as from the Mac Irvin Fire 13U AAU team. Thanks to the players and coaches at Ariel and with the Mac Irvin Fire!

http://AnacronMusic.com "Unfamous Mindframe" Official Music Video Art and Direction by Christophe Roberts http://christopheroberts.com Filming and Cinematography by Zubaer Khan http://zubaerkhan.com Editing and erratic hand motions by Anacron It's been far too long since I've delivered an official visual for you AnaManiacs. With several forthcoming music video productions halted in mid-production, I decided to take matters into my own hands. As they say, "if you want something done right, do it yourself." On a recent trip to to the East Coast, my team made magic happen within a few free hours of a busy schedule. My NYC-based PNTGLLRYNTWRK crew members and good friends and I rallied an idea to create a visual for my latest collaboration with Daze and Diles; as it thoroughly identifies all of our artistic hustles. Christophe Roberts (aka Perv One) is a known visual artist and sculptor, who's work can be seen all over New York and in magazines. Zubaer Khan (aka DJZu) is a seasoned cinematographer & editor that's flexed his skill for everyone from Revolt TV to CBS, and has worked on a few of my previous projects. The Brazilian homie Mauricio Tadashi (aka ChiliBreakz), the owner of the Original US merchandising and accessories company, showed up for support and good vibes. If you're up on your Peanut Gallery crew history, then you should be familiar with all of these brothas. The result of our combined efforts is a simple, yet masterful piece. Filmed on location in Brooklyn, NY; the imagery is reminiscent of the basic freshness of early 90's styling and visuals. After watching this PNTGLLRYNTWRK family production, you'll understand the lyric, "...new Peanut Gallery / So Golden Era." Thanks for watching... Comment, share, and ENJOY. "Unfamous Mindframe" Written and performed by Anacron for Manoemusicc Produced by Diles for Visceral View Turntablism by DJ Daze Uno From Green Chile In The Air: Volume III Download at pntg.net/gcinta3 You know how I do. It's been about a month, so it's about that time to hit you with something new. Although, with all the saxophoning, singing, and instrumentation I've been doing lately; I thought it'd be best to let the next public heater be a good old-fashioned boom-bap beats and raps cut for my core fan-base -- the true blue underground hip hop heads. Enter: "Unfamous Mindframe." You've seen it on events, you've heard it on records, you've even seen the logo on merchandise. On this, my second collaboration with ABQ-based producer Diles, I decided to take some time to explain what exactly "UNFAMOUS" means. For those that haven't gotten it up until now, this is the song that will open your eyes, ears, and mind to the UNFAMOUS movement, and why you should be involved. In addition to all the goodness in it, what pure rap song is complete without a visit from my favorite DJ, The OG Daze Uno? Press play and turn the speakers up, this one's going to knoc your socs off.

This song, entitled "Destiny Bends" was written last night after hearing the tragic news of the loss of a good man named Paul Walker. I met Paul on the set of the film Brick Mansion, where we talked, laughed, and exchanged ideas of life and fatherhood. I only knew him personally for less than a year, but we knew each other through our work and art. We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones. Men who learned the joy and pains of love in life, and success, while coming to realize that nothing is more important than family, friendship, and the brotherhood of humanity. Millions of people get to know an artist or movie star through their work, but few are allowed to cross each others' paths and see through the veil of stardom and find the common denominator that we share. As all physical things will decay and wither away, film, art, and music remain longer than the vessel that delivered them. In this vein, the one thing we can't take away or give back is time. So, thus, time is the most precious gift. I dedicated my time to compose this song with my two sons and new friend Will Wells, who was kind enough to sing and perform it for me. We dedicate it to Paul Walker. A good man. We had plans to continue working with each other in the future. It seemed destined, but "destiny bends".
