to me Santeria is a lifestyle a way of life and a religion yeah just as much Catholicism with Judaism of Buddhism to advantage that Santeria gives you is that it's a living breathing religion okay you could check in on yourself yeah that's good and that's bad because that lets people think it's a fucking fortune show yeah so now people find out about this and all sudden they're like hey what do you what do you think about you know I will see your guy and if they don't like what they hear that's the end of that Santeria yeah Santeria is not a lady throwing cards and telling you you're passing your future no coin it's somebody telling you your energy and what you could do to make it even fucking better okay so how did you first experience that in you into the I was a child Cuba yeah at the house I saw certain things and at first I said ah well that was a little statue yeah some shit she do right by the door I noticed on Mondays my mom was huge on Mondays monday is the spirits day okay one day you cook you clean the house you set out new glasses with water in them you put a cigar yeah and you offer a meal to level loved one you lost and you play music that they liked and it's every Monday's kind of remembrance and you dip in there to give you strength yeah the spirits is not to say hey if fuckin I hope Jim dies today in a car accident you know that's what people actually became layin so I was a sickly kid when I came from Cuba I was always sick my tonsils so my mother went for a read because she believed in it and they brought me up she was blown the fuck away yeah when she came home and told me what was going on and she wanted me to talk to this woman and at the time I lived on 205 West 88th Street in New York so I'm a Cuban kid Wow living in a white area with a PA oh

to do I know you can't fucking do it so that was it was just beautiful for a kid on me this little secret I had nobody else was into it you know when I see a dead chicken on the street in New York on the corner kids with all that's this I'd say it's Santeria leave it alone ok send the fuck out they want a question you know like I was going to ask you because it's banned in California isn't it he can't sacrifice animals to you know I don't know I don't sacrifice animals and so I don't know I don't know what the rules are in California but in Jersey you had to go to barber in New Jersey by animals and bring him up I didn't really know how a word that to me was the athlete they knew that to me as the by the way later yeah I knew about the chickens that's it I didn't know about the goats and they're a bigger goats a funny whenever the machine you know I was very I was a young kid and then after three days they have a thing which Courtney got he dies when they redo your future you have very subtly and my dog was you know it was gonna be a doctor a lawyer that I was uh not allowed to have weapons you know it was just so many things I had asked permission and these are the boundaries that you have to live by is something restrictive of my system I for me it was very restricted because I was a sponge and I listened I listened I like this time Santeria is beautiful to me I would spend the weekends with my godmother we greet other people and she'd say to me well you think so who I'm an 8 year old in a fucking room with adults tell I'm listen you gotta stop doing this and they look like my little fuckers just kickin cuz I have a bun a lot of these dirty yes the judge of jewelry so they would say they would eat the fuck you know I gotta stop fuckin eat chicken you know whatever fuck whatever the guy says that's why Santa we don't work for a lot of people doesn't checks you yeah checks you perfectly so I'm gonna take you through this really fast you understand what my energy comes from okay now that the religion how he brought it was very secretive it was very high on a need-to-know basis yeah since I was I had already learn how to be very subtle about hey your mom's name was in the paper last week four numbers I don't have some basketball fucking game what do you want to be wanna go eat chicken or you know man and it went away so I always knew but my godmother started getting celebrities by 73 because I made Saint when I was seven this is 1970 so the band came into New York the fania label and it was called the Fania los loros Hector Lavoe Willie Cologne so he was he went to Japan they went Africa for mama all evening but their big concert film was in New York and is called our Latin thing okay and she had two of the motherfuckers in that band she had Larry Harlow the people Jude piano player yeah and she had a Roberto Roja when you said have what do you mean by that she was their God yes yes they socialized but by this time awful Sun mouth came into this country at novia the same cocaine cocaine was coming and by the quote lungs so this guy had month these guys had money so I saw and my mother was involved in offer so I saw my godmother go from a Cuban African Stern godmother to didn't drink didn't smoke and they were all in bed at 10 o'clock every night and now she's at concerts at night with me you know and she's doing this and she's gonna take me like and it's very good but she's running through a different element yeah and that I don't care that the drug dealers started coming to her as you know when they busted into Noriega house he had Santeria in his closet Fidel Castro is a big Centurion fucking god you know I'm not prejudiced workers into a tan but after being 50 years old and being in the in the religion for 40 fucking 3 years I've seen it and I know the fields I know that Santeria is basically a religion of energies and you fucking feel them you don't feel them in your light things it's it's very close to is it a constant like to do to every situation you're in you kinda using it to judge every situation no no but it's very it warns you I'm gonna let you forward for the fucking trap you so yeah I had a godfather I had a stepfather married my mother and he was i before that's something completely different in Cuba their longshoreman they dedicate their life to sentence and Lazaro okay the saint with the dog shit okay why you can't hit dogs that bad transactions in front of them their punishment business they slash your ass with a straight red shit they all carry straight razors yeah it only pussy why because it weakens them as a man this is a man with a brotherhood of Cuba it's not like those guys why don't fucking how are that much these guys are super men like if there's a gay men in the room they can't be in that room a gay man can't touch their head a man can't touch their face they don't eat pussy but why does he pussy weak I have no idea to make the fucking news you know that's just what I had things are they these are the things that these guys don't say much these guys you can't call them you can't talk to them out of context let's say your name is what Martin what's your nickname it's awesome okay let's say I called you the Red Devil and that's the nickname that they told you and I wasn't supposed to call you that yeah you pull me aside and go next time you call me the Red Devil I will fucking stab you in the fucking eyeball my name is Martin motherfucker you don't know that and you're like what I do and see if I called you a name that's how uptight these guys are I think he's just been prejudiced again oh I love the red dr. Sophy this guy became went from being a lot about quad to since he lived in the house made my mama be having like him sink and we went to be one of Obama's guys and that got interesting that really got interesting because in Santa is a lot of gay guys so he's in the fucking room sweating bullets so they said you have to kind of he had a man tiptoe on he kept all around it but now it's mid seventies and I'm saying drugs coming the fucking my mother up and on top of this they're fucking my godmothers not doing the drugs but she's representing these guys she's taking these guys because

you know and I'm starting to do my shit and I'm not noticing all this my mom and my stepfather break up you know at the house we had him in the closet we you know you had a closet little things and we share them and we killed animals at the house from time to time my mom had Santeria parties we celebrate but I always remember the teachings of my godmother by the time I was in high school I got motive was my godmother but a lot of things that happened and that time and the wall drug isn't money and incident so the ties were severed me and my heart I still love my godmother yeah my stepfather my mom break up this is when I start learning about the religion this is when I could explain to you yeah how the division affected me my mother breaks up with a step my stepfather in that time in New Jersey lottery gets picked up in New York so my mother's primary business with the bar but her real moneymaker was numbers okay so once a lot of it came that took a chunk out of her yeah a couple of arrests per my father had me proud and she couldn't go to work a few days business weren't them the police was sick a cop that killed in my hometown yeah which I'll get to that later a Cuban cop got fuckin slaughtered by bullets for shaking down Cuban Barra I came all this bad energy was around Santeria is a beautiful fucking religion it's a religion of beauty and home if you if you read the African stuff nowhere in there should it be fuckin murder and drugs and cursing and yelling if you have to go to a Santeria partisans you walk in you're taken by the drums your heart starts fucking beating then you'll see a chick with dark skin shaking around and you've got these fucking emotions but it's not like your dick is hard it's like you're in fucking another planet you're floating it's like you doing excess or all of a sudden this elements trying to come into the my father this goofy fucker for her and the drug dealers started coming in and they doing drugs at the Santeria parties and he's cannot see yeah but there was one guy in particular I went home six weeks ago the guy's name was and even look him up before his name was Garcia but we call him Rocky was his middle name and I went home six four weeks ago do comedy in New York and my cousin picked me up was also involved in Santeria when we were growing up and I'm gonna drive to the city we were discussing dotty yeah and I know you know that you go visit poppy in prison and this man towards the end he shot the kid the woman of the child it was all over after that and I said you know it made copy a saint in my house and he looked me in the face and they gonna you know really think about it you should have never made bilis ain't that's a huge statement yeah I knew for years this guy was killing me nothing it saved it and so my mother gets in for his trouble this andrés garcía that's his name Andres Garcia but they call cock he had grown up with my mother but Betty any cook my father in Cuba since they were kids so he was always around the house and even after a while my mom would go listen I don't want you to clown with that guy cuz Sunday they're gonna pull up on him and I shoot him I don't wanna hear that

that time I loved him man so he was under surveillance and twenty people looking to kill so we only personally trusted to do safe they told if he makes a few won't go to prison yeah I mean it is irrelevant in this way like yeah so it's one says give me 20 grand hands and you won't go to prison and then you do go just how crazy is before he found the godmother I would do him st. and I said that if she getting twenty granny will put him in person all right and we have to make the same now but he didn't trust nobody we personally trusted with my mother so yes my mother needles list what

type of people in Los Angeles people that hit a fucking lottery it's the same mentality with that I've been to a couple functions and it wasn't the way I was raised it was people who half of it was a social life meows it and the other half is it's like going to a church and seeing you you know it this guy fucks his secretary appears twice a week but this motherfucker says in the front row at church you know this family on Sunday and you look at this motherfucking you go this is why I can't go to Catholic Church no man because of pukes like him and then you realize this guy's gonna die and fucking hell with a black cock up his ass I don't fucking matter so fuckin let him take whatever he takes you know and and that's what Santeria is about you give fuck him go in that double-faced yeah I wouldn't go for a reading while I was on the blog yeah because I knew if the guy was good Oh Papa I would throw me right out of that fucking meeting if I did it one for meaning just that it wasn't Mike yeah and in a million year this is everything you have Santeria you can't even take the same with you will you die you have a ceremony leave the same here and the same decide when you want to say

but you don't get it because it was raised here he's a conspiracy theorist yeah so he wouldn't understand looking he actually goes to psychics so I can't hear are away yeah he's doing already but uh I

asked I asked permission I won't the cap insurance I really like the captain with yeah and that's the good thing you can ask permission what about you want idiot go about Canada how does she feel about if I go for a reading and they particularly talk to me by my wife or my daughter then I would have to do something I have to think about the floors what they're saying and my life is but I'm not one of those guys I don't want my wife or me to have the same interest yeah I talk to my wife about and water a book what I'm gonna collect the sound she was reading a Christian when I'm a timing I would never want to be better come on I want to come for me tell me yes book it's a beautiful religion yeah I tell her every day look at our look what's going on the house yeah so she's cooler my wife

where she's been my heart I gonna tell she's been there the whole time Michael baccala she's been there the whole time and he's just come just decided to come up yeah fruit yeah 14 years I'm moving to 414 is it just a meter two years ago what he is now she decides to have a kid how many times I banged my wife what I'm I wanna fat fuck you're saying I don't why I believe I'm back on the train I'm back but I was always there but I wasn't a hundred percent yeah Michael I think that how would you back oh yeah I wasn't hundred percent when I was 100 percent when you were walking to a Catholic Church yeah because you're not a hundred percent you come in hit a pray meanwhile you're walking crooked like most fucking Americans and most people and I want help but then I'm gonna put the work in with Santeria you gotta put the fucker Morgan how do I know because I lived around 50 fucking years old yeah I've had white hair from a bottle ah since I was eight since I was eight I've had little markings yeah and I always knew I always knew that where I'm fucking by the time I was 30 I will fight and I just do a movie so they died it yeah that's what this day will be see so what do you friends secret they don't say dick now and I laugh about it Joe Rogan asked about a really problem I laugh about it with my wife I thinking they had to think I'm fucking around well I've never broke it down for the me like I said it's it's not a conversation that I often yeah don't you hate when somebody comes up here start phony about a religion that's like to tell you to come by their church without a component then it really it really sucks we turn it on say I was at a movie shoot two weeks ago and it's a low-budget movie okay but I've been on low-budget movies where the fucking tables are filled with food two days I had to show up with garlotte's for this movie oh shit the other day another guy bought McDonald breakfast sag says that call my random if you could do a movie in you said the tables like call and ran on and I've always said that's not about rules that's about being a man what you're doing my movie in this fucking peanut butter get a hundred dollars I'll go get these fucking nicely tonight chicken man and they can feed them you know well I'm looking at this table and how light it is and the executive producer comes over to me and Dean Cain me one easy yeah you know I only answered a one-man priced the saver and I'm look at is another Christian that he's so much of a Christian it has cooled on there he's probably making 10,000 a day but for a hundred you'd be old uncle Christian yeah well he's a newbie revolver at for the Christian budget for food I didn't Jesus yeah yeah so this is why with people they're not just confuse the Santeria the confusion thousands of fuckin religion and because they throw away manhood and they throw away who they are you think really like is the interesting point you said about like religion is actually hard it's not an easy thing to do it's not marriage yeah yes it's not you have to follow barriers my career's products exceeded about four years ago yeah I started doing podcast I started talking people my story was gonna bring you paperwork from one of my reads about four years ago okay where he said that I'm a disciple of like the form of le one I sound rough but my words give you a meaning yeah and he said he was the lawyer family is my dad and while your torture people you're really gonna strike success and so I started doing my podcast I never wanted to be haha hehe yeah I always wanted you to get something right yeah at the airfield ago Jesus fuckin Christ this guy didn't want you know and I looked at the you know I looked at those papers from time to time I had like I try to read every

November the worst ones that'll happen we have been over I'm dying I got arrested to go to prison there's no I hate things that have happened they fuckin November so so it's a reminder of the things you know the number for obatala is 8 I thought it was born 8th yeah it's just only fucking thing hello it is a fine reminder there's so many things as a reminder and that's why I respect it I live by it you know he doesn't want me to I was thinking about how a guy like me should always have a weapon on yeah even because even if I'm not getting the time I love to shoot somebody who's fucking mark your assailant if I pull up in some guys leaving is like fuck you mourn you shooting pull around shoot him in the head saying try this Mac yet but that's the reason why I bother I wasn't wanting to

to myself what am I worried about my fallout took care of me always yeah years in the back really bad time I always know I was going to come back home I just didn't know what she was at the fight I was at the faith yeah I always knew something I didn't know what I always you know when I was 16 17 18 19 I wanted to die I just didn't have the balls to pull the trigger because I knew and I knew that over baccala then Tanith means you handle a ton of thousands of stories money you know just go easy go jesus fucking crashing alright I was on my way out no son I go to fucking a supermarket on a lady walks past when a person wherever will fill with money sticking out and all I do is tap yep over the falls just a thousand stories down don't you say you were a bad person and they just absolutely here I was out of my admirer the smell when society takes your mother at 14 15 and you believe you fucking central nervous belief system brings down my fucking god take away my mother fuck

there it was money yeah if you left I didn't give a fuck about a little body because the world didn't give a fuck about me and then people started caring about me and that turned me around a lot of good friends from high school stuff that and we took one about Santa Maria power willing to cut a chicken's head off for you yeah I needed kind of cobble chickens heads own poor chicken yeah but you know a lot of people got chickens heads off the sacrificial addition yes guy were talking to he was saying that he's really angry about having allowed her chickens herself to sitting on Thanksgiving in my skin till billions of fucking turkeys all right each year she's a kind of sacrifice how was his argument anyone know it's funny like I feel bad I'm not involved in mourning I'm waiting to see if

that's all for God Miami the poor guy at the improv and his guy just to give you a safe 15 grand to give yelling LA and boom 15 fucking where before that's my yeah that's before anything cuz the religious gotta be 40 50 to get it now 60 grand - the animals shit yeah you got up that money - I paid seven eight grand I think me and my mom paid 7 grand this is before other part of it King yeah and now people have to run like a corporation I guarantee you excision is like some inflationary pressure you know mean light yes in like the dealers and all that is flashing out baby Maury as English is the prices which is not like price people out in a way all the people always find people always going with one set but it's funny there was a lot of shams became that's how shams you know they have followed by eat but there's a lot of religions that come in this world that people confuse of Santeria and eats me alive but the guy in Mexican drug dealers killing bodies sacrifice people now that's probably something a little do that's not I don't want to put that's where people confuse themselves in Santeria but some to put better people to know it's distracting you to make your heart strong Lisa each one of these Saints helps you a different way like in my last couple reads at like wow I know Google that really good hop in my career yeah well goons been cutting down trees or blooms a saint he's that he's the master liar yes I better not fucking buzzsaws fucking my phone so he's been cutting out to the world from how you know letting the word out you know and I'm very fortunate then they say you know I say I say well I want to get into it what's your advice to me I'm going to go to Barnes & Noble I want you to read everything up a lot I want you to read everything up line because I'm hoping that after you read better after you you read first 41 0 120 days before months you'll say this is too much I won't here know what you're getting yourself into I want either hang out with authentic people like friends I want you to scoop it out the authentic Cuban for the Brazilians don't know what that thing is know the kind that I was messing around with here in LA he messes around with the Brazilian people but he goes to fuckin have he goes right now fucking this guy goes is sold just he just took two here two ceremonies over there two people that I know went to half ago with him that's gotta be fuckin brutal be long Africa seen him but uh and then it's not what people think it was never that for me it became that in my house now I look back at that I'm like what a fuckup they dig little and little thing that they would have kept it simple my mother was gonna follow alive but that whole group of people turned into Sun mouth they turned in the Santeria to do whatever bad thing they know I think I saw was about you give that saved a million dollars II can't spend that he's an empathy that goes into somebody's fuckin popularity stop selling you a dream that you could do drugs and do whatever the fuck you prefer to do carry weapons and that's what they want you to do up above really that was their intention yeah that's the African gods wanted you to do that's my conversation
