Prolly won't hear the end of this...

but I am a man of many musical tastes, and well, this is my blog so fuck it. I like John Legend, and I like the direction this song is taking him. Green Light feat Andre(w) 3000...peep the video!


Classic niceness...

thats gonna be my new word..."niceness". It's the best word to describe this...Talib Kweli feat KRS One...Perfect Beat. Peace.



How could I forget...

I know, I know...but with so much other shit on my mind the past week or so, this one slipped through the cracks. Thanks to my girl, Courtney, for reminding me. RIP Aaliyah...you are definitely missed...


One thing I didn't forget, but some of you out there (you know who you are) may wish I had...4 fantasy football drafts in 3 days. Yes, people, football season is finally upon us!! Peace.

Ohhh, just a few long hours left...

and ya boy will be on a flight to the city of sin, gambling, big tippers, and butt naked strippers. Five days of uninhibited bachelor party lunacy (not my bachelor party of course) are about to occur. Talk to y'all when I return. These videos may give you an idea of the debauchery that WILL go down. Peace.

I got my MAC on...


I know everybody is all up on this dude right now...with the release of his new joint, "Windows Media Player". We  got him in the inbox a while back and I think Catch posted a video...I like dude. So I was reading up, apparently he is about to release his third of 6 mixtapes prior to the release of his album.... Wow, 6 of em...you can get the first free here, and the second(and better, with most songs from the first) here, but you have to wait till September 2 to get the new one, Death of A Mixtape Rapper. Here are a couple joints that may make it on there and one from the Green Lantern Mixtape...




I might as well keep with the theme of the day and post this video I found...


Where the fuck would we be without YouTube...Peace.

One of my favorites of the year...

Yo, this is still one of my favorite joints of the year...check out Yeezy throwin up the Roc/Star Trak sign. Thanks to On Smash for the hookup. Peace.



Seriously...who thinks up this shit...

I mean really, who sits there and goes..."Ya know, we should make a Kanye puppet in some sort of Unified Games like the Olympics, then we'll make the only black man on the panel against him being in the games. We'll give him some Nike Shock running shoes, the number 1 on his chest, and those stupid sunglasses that everyone has now". Who does that...they are some creative sonsabitchs...Yeezy does it again. Stolen from FSD, thanks homie! Peace.

Oh yeah, btw, I did see two girls runnin around downtown with those goddamn glasses on yesterday...like they got 100% UV protection and block the sun!!!

The Roth Boys in the buildin...

Since Catch apparently has goosebumps and has been jerkin to that video of Jay at GITD, I thought I would g'head and introduce him, and those of you that don't know him yet,  to Asher Roth. Now I'm not so sure that I slept on this on as much as I took the time to really listen to dude. You know everyone wants to compare him to Em, which...ain't a bad comparison. I mean, sometimes, his complex flow sounds alot like early Eminem, without all the serious undertones. Asher just likes to party and have a good time. Seriously, who throws a keg party EVERY Sunday...Asher Roth does...and you're invited.  I mean everytime I hear about "white rappers", I think of Shamerock...oops I mean Shamrock from "The White Rapper Show". Asher Roth is a breath of fresh air.

His mixtape with Cannon and DJ Drama came out sometime in May or June, and from what I read he is the first white boy to do a mixtape with Cannon and Drama.  On his myspace he claims to have spit 150 bars to Jay-Z in his office...on the spot. WHAAAAT???...a 150 bars...shit most wouldn't be able to spit a fresh 16 and this dude does 150. Anyway, his...uhh..."remix" of J's "Roc Boys" is not only sick but we find out what that 150 bars did for him..."Jay passed on me for Pittsburgh Slim/but in the end I am kickin it with Steve Rifkind". Now, I know in the whole scope of things my opinion means shit, but this is really all I have to say to Jay..."You know you done fucked up right?" Asher even takes a little shot at Jay it seems..."Figga what Jigga figga'd, then figga more/figga Jigga bitta because he didn't know/but when has a Jigga decision ever gone gold?/...I don't know". Then later he says "This is the same shit that happened on Renegade"...refering to Jay gettin merked on his own song by...who else but...Eminem. Its some classic shit...there is a good intereview here where he explains what he meant. You know what...just watch this video...


You know kid had to do his "A Milli" remix like everybody else too. Dude is crazy when he spits..."How is George Bush not in jail for treasAN/but Clinton gets impeached for busting SemAN". He put up a free download of that shit as well and you can get it here. Once this cat gets some actual production and beats of his own, he is gonna be a beast...but hey, don't take my word for it, crack a 40 of your own, and listen for yourself. Peace.



PS: We can turn out the lights and play "Who's in your mouth, mouth, mouth?" ...classic.

Green: it's not just the color of money...

I know this blog is supposed to be about hip-hop, and hip-hop only, but that doesn't give us the right to ignore the environment! So with that in mind, I'm doing my part to pitch in. It's the right thing to do.

We're all brothers from another mother: Mother Earth! So give a hoot, don't pollute... bitches!

UPDATE:
To make up for the non-hip-hopishness of that video, here's a makeup. PS, if you haven't seen Step Brothers, well... you're a douche.

Politickin'...

So, Luda's "freestyle" for Obama was pretty good/funny - and that beat was filthy, but I digress. Problem is, the firestorm that followed didn't work out like he probably planned: Obama had to denounce his "friend," and the conservative media (ahem, Fox News) is latching onto that shit and running with it. I get it, Luda was just saying what most of us would say to each other: Bush is mentally handicapped, and McCain used to sign his name on stone tablets. The stakes are so much higher here though. Race is such a touchy subject, and the tone of us vs. them from his song only serves to fuel the fire...potentially setting up more road-blocks (as if there weren't already enough) in front of Barack on his path to Pennsylvania Avenue.
On the bright side, folks like Big Boi also get it. His new cut with Mary J. is an equally powerful message. Of course, the haters out there won't talk about this one. And it's unfortunate, because this is how it's done (via G.O.O.D., via daily motion):
