Who Is Pedro

Uh huh! Watts Watts loved ones? It's ya boy Pedro. Since I have been going by Pedro, those that know me have always asked "how did you come up with 'Pedro'"? Well, today I'll take a moment to share with you all how I began calling myself "Pedro". Now, for the new fans and supporters this will all be insight with combination of revelation regarding our production arm of Uncut Village Records. It all started when I was a teenager growing up in Watts and being from the Hacienda Village Boys (also identified as Hacienda Village Bloods). When I was around 15 or so I had, after many monikers, been given the name "D. Rock" by elder members of the organization I mentioned above. Now the "D" is the first initial of my birth given name, which as some know is Darren. It's the "Rock" that is where the mystery of Pedro is found. Pedro is obviously a Spanish name in nature, which, as it turns out translates into Peter as we know it in the english language. Now in the Greek language Peter translates into"rock" or "stone". [The name Peter (Gk., Petros) means“rock” or “rock-man. (Bible.org)] [The name Pedro is derived via the Latin word "petra", from the Greek word "η πετρα" meaning "stone, rock". The name Peter itself is a translation of the Aramaic Kephas or Cephas meaning "stone". (Wikipedia)] Don is a reverent term in the Spanish culture. The Don is worthy of the utmost respect, such as a King. ["Don" is an old title given to men of high social status through respect. Although it´s a very old title, it is still occasionally used. The noun "don" is "gift" as in, "he has a gift for languages" ]
