Theo recently launched Good Posture, an all-inclusive media service he referred to as "life design, if you will." The Wonderland album packaging was a GP production and Martins and his GP team will begin production on Vasquez's debut solo platter later this year.

Theo's family still resides here, with the homecoming show serving as a national tour kickoff. And he has kept up on the lively hip-hop community here. "I have enjoyed watching the Rhode Island rap community grow and prosper," he told me." I grew up with Juan Deuce — he's always reminded me of John Belushi-— and Chachi was one of the first people to support my musical endeavors.

"What originally started as a curious visit turned into a full fledge move to the other side of the country," Martins noted. "Rhode Island will always have a special place in my heart, and I still haven't found better sushi in Los Angeles."

Theo Martins remains in Strictly Business mode, but Wonderland has done wonders for his current state of mind. "I am working on some new music, new videos, and new ideas," he said. "It's going to be much more fun this time around — I can feel it in my bones."
