Just when you thought it was safe....

If you didn't already know, go HERE. When I first heard the ILLFIGHTYOU mixtape, the only phrase that came to mind was: "Mayhem for mayhem's sake." So it continues.

I once witnessed a crowd of hipsters in Ballard become completely flummoxed as they were faced with the raw verbal onslaught of KHRIS P and UGLYFRANK. Maybe they were under the impression that all PNW Hip Hop sounds like Blue Scholars and Macklemore? Regardless, it was a beautiful thing to see all the rain boot, tight yellow tshirt, scarf wearing; PBR sipping, frenchie owning sensitive boys and girls either flee the scene, or attempt to dance awkwardly. Word to Larrry Mizell, PRO RELAXER, and the ILLFIGHTYOU Crew.

Close Your Eyes and Count to Fuck....the Video.

There is a powerful message here, and I'm not going to pretend I have anything to add, other than my support. The video is directed by AG Rojas, and his words regarding the work frame it up perfectly. So, put on your headphones, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and click this LINK.

Whatever Happened To Kirby Puckett?

He died. Apparently my brother knew this. I did not. I wasn't a baseball kid, so I didn't give a shit. I was a basketball kid. I enjoyed watching Karl Malone brutalize people like Isaiah Thomas, and Mark Eaton. Great and terrible things were wrought in the Delta Center by The Mailman.

I also enjoyed skateboarding, masturbating furiously (while God wasn't watching, of course), and burning things. Above all, I loved Rap Music.

Fast forward to 2015 where I am mostly the same person, with less arson, more NFL than NBA, less skateboarding, more pussy, and quite possibly the same amount of masturbation (only now I use Dr. Bronner's magical peppermint soap in the shower sessions, and I don't worry about whether God is watching or not). I still live and breathe Hip Hop.

Apparently other people in the world, such as Canadians, knew about this band BADBADNOTGOOD. I did not. Therefore, like the Kirby Puckett thing, I did not know and/or give 2 watery whisky shits about it.

So now maybe there is an album called Sour Soul that they made with Ghostface, and I don't know if you know, but Ghostface Killah is a really wonderful rapper. Much like Tolkien he pretty much created an entire language one time. Maybe this album also has rappers like Danny Brown, who drinks and smokes and likes to eat pussy and will maybe one day die like a rock star. Also maybe a rapper from Detroit that is not Eminem and doesn't belong to Slum Village anymore. Maybe it also has a mysterious rapper named Doom who once made a song for the children which was called "Vats of Urine".

Maybe you should check it out for yourself.

Shit man, more drama?

In the latest video/track from Action Bronson, Mr. Wonderful himself asks the same question I recently presented to my ex-wife: WHY YOU THINK I'M OUT HERE ACTIN' CRAZY?

Well, except I was asking why she was on my porch acting crazy, but you get the idea.

This video makes me happy.

Let's Talk About Feelings.

New track and video from a Seattle favorite:


Not a bad thing to say about that.

I've heard it said that Grieves is "a little too emo". What the fuck does that even mean? Are we still pretending we don't have feelings? I musta missed the memo. For me, part of becoming the man I should be means being able to understand how I'm feeling, why I'm feeling it, and how to deal with it (rather than getting hammered and breaking some Ikea furniture). Call me gay. Maybe you didn't get the memo about that....shit is played out. One thing I have always respected about Grieves is that he puts it all out there. That takes real courage. It helps that he is talented, and lyrical. Also, this dude puts on a show. So, next time you get a chance to see him perform, do it. Years ago, we shared a conversation (at a Prof Mill Creek. Weird.) We spoke of our love for whisky, particularly the Rye variety, and blonde women from Utah (or Sweden. Take your pick.) Which brings me to my favorite track of his from a few years back:


Now go file your TPS reports. Make sure you use the new cover sheet.

That's Fucked Up Man. You Should Do Something.

Soooo, I guess it's 2014 now. I did not make a list of resolutions. That would have interfered with my drinking. However, I would like to start posting Hip Hop related things regularly again. Let's start there.

The homies over at SubSoniq Radio just dropped a fresh episode with a FILTHY playlist. Definitely worth checking out. Just click HERE. Download it, stream it, or get the Stitcher Radio app for your phone and subscribe there. If you have listened before, you will recognize a familiar voice that has been absent for quite some time. Gangsta Mittens must have decided to take a break from drinking Mojitos and complaining about her cat's unruly behavior to step up to the mic. As usual, her commentary and track picks are always enjoyable. If you haven't listened before, start. Stay tuned until the end for some outtakes, including a perfect RZA impression by K-Murdock.

Ok. Gotta go sign up for yoga or some shit. It's 2014. I should do something.

Straight Outta....What the FUCK?!

You know how sometimes you are at a party, surrounded by people, and then you and a couple other people decide to sneak out to the garage to "do" something? Well, it has been a while for me, but a couple nights ago, that's is exactly what Catch, Benny, and myself did. I know what you're thinking, but there was no smoke or white powder involved. It was something much more pure and enjoyable:


P.S. Thanks to my brother TorqueLoins for the connect.
