week.End Joint

Like a set of Pirelli tires, 50 steam rolls on this Joint. Shit, his feature reminds me of 2003 when he was relevant and controlled the game. Fast forward a couple of years and how times have changed. Oh yeah, Pusha T drops good bars too!

Grab It!

Mixing it up tonight and presenting some Europen flair. As soon as I heard this joint, I liked it instantly. Enjoy!

Bob Sinclar - Far l'amore!

Political Science

Here is some knowledge for your mind. In case you don't know, it's bombs over Libya as of late and here is the reason for it. It is not oil, that's just a bonus prize. The reason why I say this is Libya only accounts for around 5% of the worlds oil exports. But it is a bigger player in the gold market and this Libyan invasion is all about the "currency" trade. Check the video for more information:

Art of Flight

This is one crazy trailer for the snowboarding movie "Art of Flight" which comes out September 8. Even if you're not a board junkie, the cinematography is purely amazing. It comes care of the Phantom Flex high-speed camera system and the Cineflex V14 gyro-stabalized system. The results are simply stunning.

I'm so impressed with Carter 4 that I had to post. I'm shocked too because I'm not a Lil Wayne fan. So the first J is a Tech Ni9ne & Andre 3000 Interlude. The second is the controversial J where Wayne disses J...Z that is. Oh boy.

Interlude!

Its Good!

I was browsing through my music folder and came across this kick ass remix of INXS. I love both of these, so put your guns in the sky.

Nu Mix!

Original!

Darknight Rises!

The movie hits theaters in summer 2012 and also features Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Morgan Freeman reprises his role as Lucius Fox, and Michael Caine returns as Alfred, Bruce Wayne's trusted butler and adviser. FYI, this epic movie will be featuring Batman's greatest adversaries: Bane.

tues.Night Joint

DJ "We Da Best" Khaled is at the feature tonight. I'm actually digging this J and the song has already reached Gold status with 500K copies sold after only 6 weeks. Busta Rhymes chimed in at the plaque ceremony:

He got the plaque quick, it's a motherfucking movie, four weeks, two weeks in June and 4 weeks in July, 6 weeks, that shit is amazing, I'm proud of this shit right here, playboy.

notorious 14

The fateful March 9, 1997 when we lost the second hip-hop icon, only six months after Tupac was gunned down in Vegas.

I think 50 summed up the post-biggie years perfectly: "We can't find biggie's killer, so we gave puffy a star."

Grab It!

i need a doctor [DRE]

Another single from the upcoming chronic album being released 4.20.2011

sleek headphones?

This pretty much says it all about 50's bullshit crying game over getting no respect from Dre over his sleek headphone deal. Looks like get rich or die tryin' has just expired.

thurs.Day Joint

Boy I've been away for a bit but today I'm back with a joint featuring dude from the Chi and D-O-double-G. Always a classic collabo and you can for sure bang this on Lakeshore Drive or anywhere in Cali. Love the "southern" feel in the instrumental and this is for sure certified D.O.P.E. or in this case Platinum!.

Grab It!

mon.Night Joint

I got a banger for ya'll tonight. It's been a while since I had a joint from the derty south and this once comes care of Slim Thuga. Add a little sticky icky from Devin The Dude and this may as well be Detox.

P.S: Omar, in case you don't know who Devin The Dude is - listen to Chronic 2001. LOL

Grab It!

funny News

I had to jump into this stuuuupid stray Hip-Hop news. In case you missed it, Ja Rule is going to jail for a 2007 incident where he was caught with a loaded handgun. Actually this is the same night Lil Wayne was arrested and he of course just finished doing his time for this.

Here is the definition of a garbage artist: Soulja Boy. Now the reason I even raise this point is because he is trying to take credit for Will Smith's daughter hit single "Whip my Hair". Now this muthafucka can't make good music and/or money so he's claiming he's a ghostwriter. I think Snoop but it best: "Bitch Please!"

sun.Night Joint

Tonight I'm featuring a dance/house mix. It's a biggie @ 40Mb. But I likey.

Grab It!

happy New Year!!

Happy New Year all you music heads!!. It's hard to believe another year has blown by and we still do not have Detox. LOL. But on a second note, I'm really digging the boy Diggy Simmons. D.O.P.E. ya dig.

fri.Day Joint

My apologies for the lack of uploads lately. I've been lazy since I'm on my mini vacation but I felt like uploading a goody from Eminem, DRE, Jay-Z and 50. How's that for end of year lineup.

I particularly like the lyrics behind this song, reflecting on the status of music and our demand for "simple" hooks and no lyrics.

Grab It!

tues.Night Joint

Ya'll know I don't only put up Hip_Hop. I love House music too, so when I come across something cool, it's naturally gonna be up in da Hause. Anyways, tonights joint has a theme of craving for Parieeee.

Although I don't crave for the popular European city, since I've never visted (yet), but I do crave you wonderful French women! And if they're from Parieeee, I'll take two!!!

on Architecture

I came across a wonderful quote from one of the world's most famous architect, Frank Gehry:

Ninety-eight percent of buildings are boxes, which tells me that a lot of people are in denial. We live and work in boxes. People don't even notice that. Most of what's around us is banal. We live with it. We accept it as inevitable. People say, 'This is the world the way it is, and don't bother me.' Then when somebody does something different, real architecture, the push-back is amazing. People resist it. At first it's new and scary.

On the strip malls, "McMansions," and tract-houses commonly seen in suburban America:

'Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky.' There's the old song about it. It's a metaphor for what we're being told: 'Just stay in the box, kid, don't muddy the water.' Parents say it to their kids. Teachers say it. Schools do. And so people become immune to the sameness...it's so common it's accepted. We can't imagine it any other way. It's dehumanizing, and we don't even notice it.

week.End Joint

Throwin the new Ricky Ross joint featuring T.I. at ya.

tues.Night Joint

A homage to the world's most recognizable and praised city: New York. This is classic since it comes from nasty NaS. Enjoy.
