New Music:Emilio Rojas - "Sounds So Good"




I cannot get over how nice this song is. Now I know that I am glad to have an exclusive song on the mixtape but you do not know about that yet. This dude rips tracks and just any beat thrown to him. If we were even going to go on a "swagger" thing that gay ass shit Emilio has it. The beat on this song is a tad erie and nothing special, but his lyrics just make the song something great. This will not be passed on in the Zune. That I will tell you for sure.

I mean shoot..."What it sound like?"

Emilio had the hottest verse in the Digiwaxx freestyle too.

New Music: Eminem - "Crack A Bottle"




New Eminem. Thanks to XclusivesZone who does not even blog. He just posts songs. Real exciting right? Anyway, I do not like "chill make a fun song" Eminem. I'd rather listen to "kill his wife" Eminem. Or "Eminem shitting on Jay Z on his own song" Eminem.. Anyway, new song from him. Listening to it, I think he is doing different alter egos and what not. Not to exciting. Regardless it was a good listen. Not as nice as this Emilio I am about to drop....hmmm

New Music: Asher Roth -"When I Was Crowned"


This track is on the DJ Wreckineyez tap3 (see my play on words there? All Puns Intended!). Apparently it was an exclusive but then I decided to take it upon myself to upload it as something that is new. So shut it up. Eventually the non tags version will come out and then I will post that one too.

Surprisingly...the song is O.K. It is not fantastic...but I do not get tired of it listening through it. Asher does his usual laid back non-serious rapping which he is known for. Although the dude cannot freestyle, he can sure make a decent song. The dude is not meant to be taken seriously...so if you hate him...try not taking it seriously then you will like it a lot more.

This was easily one of the best songs on the entire tape which has entirely to many songs. 36! However, they are all about 2 minutes each...o well. What do you think?

New Music: Wordsmith - The 2008 Resolution & Re-Cap Mixtape

DOWNLOAD HERE
I am talking to my cousin and he told me to download this mixtape. Ironically I was on HippityHoppityDXity earlier and I downloaded it already. So my cousin can kick rocks.

Featuring the likes of Donny Goines, RaTheMC, Unlearn amongst others, Wordsmith has managed to create a plethora of good sounds and enjoyable listens. I am rocking out to this right now..and you should be too.

But, I just remembered (as the songs went on) that I was not to much of a fan of WordSmith...ouch.

No really. This is my opinion. This opinion is grand. This opinion matters more than yours.


All Puns Intended

New Music: Travis McCoy - "Lets Get It On"




Travis McCoy signed to Nappy Boy Records the other day. I do not understand. I know what career suicide means and this is a clear ass example of that. I, for one, do not think that Travis is that nice of a rapper.

Shoot me.

I think that he is just different and has a different sound which entrances listeners of Hip Hop and Alternative alike.

Otherwise he does not really have much wordplay, multi's etc. So nothing really turns me on to listening to him. So I will say that I am not excited for his mixtape.

Anyway, moving past that, the song itself is O.K. Beat is tough though..who produced it? Does anyone know?

Stumbled On: If Heaven Was Only A Mile Away.



I liked J Dilla, but I was not involved in the craze after his unfortunate passing. Termanology is doing something for him and that is dope. Then again, it looks like everyone is going to be on this album, which is free and downloadable tomorrow.

O yes,

Happy New Year!

New Video: Statik Selektah Feat Bun B and Cory Mo



Do you know that I had to argue with people to say that Bun B was a legend? I had to really argue with people to prove that. I mean that does show the complete ignorance in some idiots now a days, but that was one of my shining Rap Moments. Anyway, I met Statik Selektah at a show a few weeks ago. Great guy to talk too. Anyway moving on, I have to review this song.

Beat is alright nothing TOO special, but Bun B's verse is just classic. If you do not consider UGK Legends something is wrong with you. I do not know who Cory Mo is and I did not recognize him...that is because I am not trill enough lol. I think Eskay Liked it...that is who I took it from anyway.

New Music: KON- "The Gift"




I was raving about this kid in the Silent Knight post. His card is sitting in my car actually. Dude is dope. In this song, I was feeling the first two verses lyricswise, but subject wise I felt it was just blah. Nothing against it...just was not a subject I liked so much.

The third verse I was not too excited about. It was...just...ok. I mean it is something that I would have to move past when listening to this on my Zune. But I felt what he was talking about when he did not want to rap anymore. People had to force him.

I am glad they forced him.

He makes GREAT music.

New Music: Termanology ft. Sheek Louch, Joell Ortiz, Bun B, Saigon & Freeway - "Say It"




The song is completely bodied by everyone on this track. I just did not see how it was a tribute to J Dilla with everyone rapping about how people lie in their rhymes. Like Eskay said, Bun B's verse was particular because of the Nah Right referance.

To be honest, the song seemed more like a Posse Cut with fire artists on it. All spitting fire verses. So a few things...

  • Bun B had the hottest verse with Termanlogy being a CLOSE second.
  • My cousin was even bopping to this, then told me to rush and post it so he can download.
  • Joell Ortiz rapping about a blade fight made me laugh.  Like a lot.
  • It is worth the download and surely will NOT be skipped.

Stumbled On: A.Pinks, Emilio Rojas, Che Grand, Donny Goines, Gata, David Rush, Goods and Murda Mook Freestyle for DigiiWaxx


I have to get down with a group of some sorts...like Digiiwaxx or something
Let me say it first. Emilio Rojas had the nicest verse period. So yea, I know the guy on a personal level and I am getting some exclusive stuff from him...blah di blah blah blah. He did have the nicest verse on the first video. Shouts to Apinks though. He is my dude.


Donny Goines is as nice a rapper as a person. <---Does that make sense? Regardless, I have been in close contact with him. Check the interview he did for me yesterday. The one thing I liked a lot about Donny's freestyle was that it was actually...a..freestyle. Groundbreaking is it not? Gata was alright nothing surprising but I rocked with it none the less.


David Rush..was dope. I replayed his verse. Not even going to lie, I really enjoyed it. Murda's?

That was dope too...but what do you expect?

Back When I Was Young: Capone N Noreaga - T.O.N.Y



For todays "Back When I Was Young", I am rocking out to the great sounds of Capone N Noreaga. Before the work out plans and what not, this was one of the best groups in the rap game at the time. With monotony setting into rap at the time with the recent deaths of B.I.G and Pac, it created a void. Although they did not fill the void, they helped keep NY where it was supposed to be. On Top.

Stumbled On: Jay Smooth Breaks Down Rap Beef



I have not been posting the Ransom/Joe Buddens beef because I do not really care... because it is too hot for this blog. However, Jay Smooth honestly is breaking it down correctly. Beef has gotten stupid now-a-days. However, I am young.

The largest beef in MY lifetime was the 50 Cent beefs back in 01-03. Those beefs changed my LIFE. I remember listening to those things and wondering why Ja Rule was such a punk.

But, when he dissed Jada...I started to turn away from 50 because I realized how dumb I was. I then sank into rap depression. Listening to anything that had its fill.

It was a dark time.

Interview: 2008 Rap-Up Donny Goines


First on the list for my 2008 Rap Up is Donny Goines. Everyday I will try and get a new rapper to answer the same (with some variation) questions below. Donny Goines is one of the most up and coming rappers in New York right now. While recently being featured on MySpace and with his coined tag line, "If you do not know my name, I am not doing my job well enough" it allows him to effectively stay in touch with his fans; something many rappers overlook.

With this intense personal relationships with even the smallest of his fans, it allows each person that listens to feel in tune with everything he says. Personally I do not feel alienated or detached from anything he spits. Mostly because he knows me on a personal level and vice versa.

It is not just me. It is everyone the dude comes in contact with. So I am happy to show you the interview below. Good Luck in 2009 Donny.

What Is Next?

Sky's the limit man. I'm on Cloud 9 right now. Getting major love from
all the blogs and websites, videos up on Music Choice and MTV, Myspace
feature, etc. and I'm just getting my feet wet. 09 I plan on making
history. Period.



Why the name Minute after Midnight?

Long story short, it derives from the concepts of the Cinderella story
and how I feel they parallel to Hip Hop. Basically everything
surrounding the ball was fantasy. The pumpkin that turned into a
carriage (which I compared to the fancy cars), the ball (similar to
the clubs) so on and so forth but what happens after Midnight? All
these things disappeared because they were NOT REAL. It was fantasy
and this album represents what happens when you take away that aspect
of the story.




Recently you stated that you saw the advantages of a major…what are we
going to see from you in 2009?


What advantages on a major haha? I think your confused homie. I am
100% independent. Everything you see happening is based off the
strength of my music, hustle and team. So ask yourself this. If I can
do all of these things without a major, what do you think would happen
if I signed to one?




Who are you looking forward to working with in 2009?

There is so much talent in the game right now I could sit here for
days naming people. I will say this though, you can expect me to work
with many talented artists next year.






What is your best asset?

My hustle. Without it there would be NO way I would have made these
things happen. Music is such a small part of this business.



Finally…why? As in what keeps you doing this?

I love what I do.

New Music: Mims Feat Mickey Factz - "Block Em"



People keep emailing me random songs. While I was perusing through BlogXilla, I peeped him asking if this was NY Radio now...

Maybe it is.

The beat itself has a meaningless lyric added too it. Who raps about shades anymore? That is SO 2007. This goes in the same boat as the last club track Mickey made a few weeks back. Yea yea yea. Lyrics wise I cannot rate it because it is not meant to be that type of song.


But although the above seemed like abstract hate...I cannot find myself hating on this song. The beat gets annoying from time to time, but I can see myself bumping this. It sounds like it would go had in the car. Harder than a boner Harder than a math test.

Stumbled On: When Roommates Go To Far



I spotted this over at BlogXilla and I had to post it. Something that is obviously old, however, it is still funnier than anything I have seen today. To be honest, that is the same way college is. You sign a girl in just to chill...and they do not want to leave. Planting their seeds and what not trying to flat out LIVE there.

Simmer down.

I signed you in for a temporary basis. Which means we study then you leave.


You thought I was talking about the nana?

Nah. Virgin 4 lyfe.

New Music: K Sparks Feat Angelous - Rap Saviors


Before I get into this, I jsut want to say that this beat is magnificent. Something that I cannot stop listening too. At first I thought that the whole "rock" beat thing ended a few years ago. That is not something that is that big of a deal anyway. The verses are on point and something that I have grown to expect from K Sparks. Angelous is someone I have never heard of, however, I am very excited to listen to him here.

But I cannot get over that damn beat.

Stumbled On: David Letterman's Top 10 George W Bush Moments

This is straight from Shake. Now, before you watch this video you MUST know my views on Bush.

As a president he was detrimental to the American Society. However, I feel when he made a decision, no matter how bad or how many casualties it caused, he stuck by it. That is a leader. Someone who sticks by what they decide to do. Someone who does not re-nigg on their decisions.

Also, he seemed like a cool guy. Someone I could definitely just have a beer with and kick it.


Now let us get to the video.

Its The Real: Vlogga Like Puff


Vlogga Like Puff from jeff on Vimeo.

These two whiteboys know more about rap than you. When it comes to actual "funny" it did not have much. Not as much as the others did that made me give them their own tag! Maybe these bad "reviews" explain why I am being ignored on Twitter....

But, I will say that when they were mentioning Bad Boy artists...I was kind of wowed. Not wowed because they knew more than any normal human being should, because all of these artists had completely disappeared. Loon? Where the HELL did Loon go? Someone find me some info.

And "Bromance" starts tonight on MTV according to Mr. Goines...

That is just funny.

Fashion: Random Sneakers from KarmaLoop

Someone buy me these.  Yea I know they look a little weird...but with my skin tight gay ass jeans they would be rocked perfectly.  Comeon someone throw me something here!
These are not girls  boots right? Because then that would change my opinion on them greatly.
Ewewewewew.  Not my cup of tea.  It looks like a sped shoe to be honest.
Yea this one too.  But then again, I will see some HypeBeast asian kid rockin these in a few weeks and make me want to buy them myself.  Life works that way?


Shout outs to Fashion Citizen for this.  Love his blog so I HAD to check it out.

Would You Hit?: Dania Ramirez






Yea I know. Before I was doing this whole scpheel on the Top 10 Video women. I realized that I could not narrow them down to just...10. Not only that, I realized that no matter what things would just be difficult for me to even continue that. Having every other black man in the world screaming at me saying that their list was better than mine would get frustrating. A little to frustrating. This girl I peeped on 2DB and now I am almost hooked. Her legs leave something to be desired...and where are this girls hips at?

New Music: DJ Jamad and DJ Wreckineyez


Time for the usual late night posts. No DJ Concept post tonight though; ran out of things of his to post!

This is a mixtape that I found in my email. The tracklist itself looks DOPINGTON (shout outs to Jessica over at LooseNeck). The only bad thing is...I do not know who these DJ's are...which means...it will be hard for me to take them seriously...

OK it gets tougher here...in order for me to review the tape (I will be posting about 5 reviews tomorrow. From now on, I will post at least 1 a day. Sorry people)...It makes it easier for me to review it...when I know who the person is.

Ok. Enough... ellipsis'. Download the damn tape here and YOU tell ME what YOU think.

Enough capital letters too.

New Music: New Fabolous, Jay Z, Mickey Factz, and Drake Tracks

I am going on a little blogging blitz since I have been out of the loop for a few days. I will just do my patented A Few Things for each.

First up is Fabolous - Go Hard(RMX)



  • I feel Fabolous' flow leaves something to be desired here.  I became used to the "Keeping it Gangsta's" and what-not that this just not make me like it.
  • The beat is still as annoying as it was when I first reviewed it.
  • Towards the middle and end of the song it felt as if he was laboring to keep the song going on. 
  • Song is worth the download but might get skipped 2 months from now on the Zune.
Second up is Lykkle Li Feat Drake & Mickey Factz - Little Bit



  • I like Lykkle Li's voice.  No questions.  
  • Drake has an alright voice.  Nothing that is groundbreaking, but something that can get him by when actually singing.  It is not something that I would PREFER to listen to...but it works regardless.
  • Mickey Factz's came in at a wrong time and I can barely hear him.  The beat is almost...singing over him.  Everytime that happens I have to put my ear closer to the speaker.  Speak up Mickey.
  • Song is worth the download...and it will NOT be skipped.
Third Up is Dj Khaled Jay Z, Kanye West - Go Hard (RMX)



  • Gahhh.  Jay Z's flow is just off.

Back When I Was Young: My Favorite Verse of All time - Wu Tang Clan - "Triumph"



For today's "Back When I Was Young", I decided to choose the classic song by The Wu, "Triumph". With some of the greatest verses ever put on Wax and my favorite verse of all time...it is surely something that deserves to be put here. Inspectah Deck singlehandeldy changed my life when I listened to this verse a few short years ago. Some classic stuff right there. I mean there are other classic verses such as, NY State of Mind verse 1 and DP Pt 2...so many verses from 1987-1990. However...this one was just...

I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies
and hypothesis can't define how I be droppin these
mockeries, lyrically perform armed robbery
Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me
Battle-scarred shogun, explosion when my pen hits
tremendous, ultra-violet shine blind forensics
I inspect you, through the future see millenium
Killa B's sold fifty gold sixty platinum
Shacklin the masses with drastic rap tactics
Graphic displays melt the steel like blacksmiths
Black Wu jackets queen B's ease the guns in
Rumble with patrolmen, tear gas laced the function
Heads by the score take flight incite a war
Chicks hit the floor, diehard fans demand more
Behold the bold soldier, control the globe slowly
Proceeds to blow swingin swords like Shinobi
Stomp grounds and pound footprints in solid rock
Wu got it locked, performin live on your hottest block

New Video: Nas Performance @ Hammelstein Ballroom



Literally I JUST said that I do not want to post performance videos, but when I saw that Shake posted this...I had no choice. Sucks how things work right? Moving on, this video is AZ rocking his classic, one of the greatest of all time verses. Now Nas did not hop on the mic, however, from what it seemed, it must have been an insane performance. Below are "Phone Tap" and Large Professor from "Live at the BBQ"

New Video: Fashawn Alchemist, Evidence Performance


Queens Get The Money Music Video from ENCYCLOPEDIA on Vimeo.
I am kind of a fan of Alchemy, but I am a huge fan of Fashawn. Normally I do not post videos of shows because well...what is the point? The video is never good quality, it always leaves something to be desired, and more often than not, the camera man is getting way to into the actual performance... And they start bouncing around and what not...then I cannot see the damn thing...then it just makes me want press delete...ugh.

Things are annoying me.. Like this Jay Z verse on "Go Hard".

New Video: Nas - Queens Get The Money (Produced By Jay Electronica)


Queens Get The Money Music Video from ENCYCLOPEDIA on Vimeo.

I have not checked my email in ages for reasons that I will update people on when everything is calmed down. Exel, Hit me up.

Moving on, I think this is a really touching video when it comes to African American struggles. Not only this, I think it stays true to the facts of the Nation of Islam and by throwing JFK in there it shows that Electronica knew his stuff. That is the problem with Hip Hop now. Too much fake knowledge. No one knew that JFK was called a "White Moderate" by MLK. Everyone pretends to act like they knew the facts.

Watching this video showed me that Jay Electronica did. +10 respect.

Stumbled On: Not so Exclusive anymore Kid Cudi Sneak Peak of "Day N Nite"




I literally just received the text on my phone saying that Miss Jessica over at LooseNeck had some EXCLUSIVE photo's of Kid Cudi's video shoot in LA for "Day N Nite". Well they are not so exclusive any more because I just posted them here. However, I want to say something. What is the point of a sneak peak to Music Videos anyway? That is some stupid shit. Why do I honestly need a 1 minute snippet of something that is 4 minutes and cannot be THAT groundbreaking anyway. What is the last really crazy Music video you saw? I do not need a sneak peak for that nonsense.

"Jeez guys. I cannot wait to watch the Day n Nite video so I have been looping this sneak peak instead"

Nonsense.

Btw. Someone keyed my damn car this morning.

New Video: Silent Knight - Pop Culture Shock



Great idea for a video of a song named "Pop Culture Shock". Three dudes...a Hipster...a Gangster...and a bum. That was a joke. I saw this dude live at the show I kind of hosted at the Knitting Factory a few weeks back. O yes, that short dude in the first slide that was a little cameo? He is nice. His name is Kon and he is from Queens.

Regardless...the video stays true to that same theme all throughout...it is worth the watch though.

New Album: Fashawn - Higher Learning



Download HERE

Fashawns new album just came out. It was presented by Jacques Morel.com OnSmash and Nah Right. The album itself is probably dope since I am into Fashawn 100% and I do not hesitate to say so. Now, of course I will post my review by tomorrow during the day...but it is Christmas so everyone will read it because family life has completely deteriorated.

I want to say something though...the Fashawn version of "Day N Nite" is better than Jimmys. If you want me to up it...drop a comment!

I am one of the first to leak this...so get on it now!

New Music: Dj Concept - It's Grover



It is late. I am completely sober...I listened to that Mims Song over 20x. And I am posting Dj Concept for the 5th straight night in a row. SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SEND ME GOOD MUSIC? AND NOT CRAP. Ugh. Email me. JacquesMorel08@gmail.com

Regardless. Relax to the sounds from Grover Washington JR. And make sure you say thank you in the comment box.

Seriously. I check my emails!

New Video: B.O.B - "I'll Be In The Sky"


B.o.B "I'll Be in the Sky" UNPLUGGED from TJ Chapman on Vimeo.

Fuck it, I am cursing all night tonight. No more Mr. Nice Blogger. It is the day before Christmas and tomorrow I have to deal with over 10k raging white people looking for the fucking Nintendo Wii. I am going to get 3 hours of sleep and I do not even care Anyway...lets get this started.

My dad was actually vibing to this song the other day. Doing that little dance of his. He asked me for his MySpace and I forgot what happened with that. The song is such a feel good song it is almost rediculous. I snatched this from Eskay and he said it was ill. So yea...why the fuck not? Shit.

O yes, another thing that is great...Live bands with rap shows...fantastic.

New Music: Mims - "Move If You Wanna"




The new Mims is crazy. No one come up in here and try and tell me different because I do not give a flying fuck. Yes I am cursing. Shit. I was driving home from a hard day of work at GameStop and I just started bopping to this song. It goes hard in the car. I am going to say it now. I am going to say it fucking loud and clear.


This new Mims song will be the new "A fucking Millie"

Why?

Have you heard that beat with 2 12" subs in your trunk? O, you are not on that yet. But regardless...I mean...his flow is just crazy too.

The lyrics are ehh but I am striking this out so I do not contradict myself

O yes, shout outs to all of my twitter people who helped me with finding this song. Thanks mah dudes!

New Video: Teriyaki Boys Feat Pharrell & Chris Brown - Work That



A few things about this video.

  • How classic is the current screen cap?
  • Pharrell probably charged a couple hundred k for this mediocre beat.
  • They barely speak any English...and it is not even kind of listenable.
  • I mean the video was entertaining...watching girls that suffer from Nassatal syndrom (I definately spelt syndrome wrong) was pretty fun.
  • I hope blogging takes me some where I can charge a couple hundred K for mediocre writing like this.

Stumbled On: M-Phazes Making A Beat



This is a video my boy Matt Diamond sent over to me today. It is him making a beat at Diamonds house...While watching the video...Diamond says..."that is top secret". hmm...what is top secret?

On another note...Phazes production is absolutely dope.

On another another note, I put Phazes on with a girl at the B.A.R.S show... DO NOT LET HIM TELL YOU OTHERWISE.

New Music: J Cole - "Dead Presidents"




Being an extremely white black kid, I go to an extremely Urban Barbershop. Now as we banter about rap, women, and schemes to make money, like a normal barbershop, every now and then they try and put me on to rappers. Normally I do not like anyone they put me on with. Why? becasue we have a different taste in rappers. Nothing special. They like gutta gutta I like finesse.

"Cheat me on my scrilla, and I'll send you to meet Dilla"

Now, this one rapper they put me on too, J Cole...is absolutely dope. They sent me in my car with a sampler and I stole the damn ting. I do not let many Cd's chill in my car. I am very picky with the music I listen too. This dudes flow is almost unmatched currently.

"The first mill I am blowin that"

Enough of this dick riding. Check the song...then check his MySpace...then comment with your damn opinion. Actually...google him my internet is fuxing up

Stumbled On: Jay Electronica Talkin to Nas before a show..


No Matter Hoooow Hard you try you can't stop me noooooow! from Jay Electronica on Vimeo.
Currently I am rocking to some Jay Electronica. Normally I do not post videos of rappers talking with each other, but I just thought it was cool to see Nas go out and rock a show like that. With all of the white arms going crazy for the song about Niggers.

Ha.

Nas is actually my favorite rapper who my Zune has been severely neglecting. I have been neglecting all the greats actually...it has deteriorated into me just listening to Internet rap and underground...

Would You Hit?: #10 on the Top 10 Video Women List Buffie the Body




I am not one for posting partially nude pictures of women on my blog...that is a terrible lie. But coming in at #10 in my Video Women Top 10, is Buffie the Body. Buffie the Body looks like a dog. You and I know that. She is not really attractive in anyway besides that thing that looks like Jupiter we call a fat ass. Now, personally, I am a not that much of a fan of butts I am more of a looks person for one but I guess she deserved to be on here anyway. Bah.

Stumbled On: Whopper Virgins



This has nothing to do with rap, but I think that it should be watched. It shows how our culture has cultivated to the point where we can travel around the world and stil find new things. Years ago, this would not have been possible.

And it shows how Burger King's Ad people shit all over McDonalds

New Music: CurT@!n$ - Yes Yes Ya'll




A few things...

  • I am not a fan of female rappers (Except Nina B who is "dopington" and my girl Jean Grae)
  • So cut her out of it.
  • It is a club track so I guess I have to rate it in that way...but why does an underground artist need a hype track anyway?  They are not expected to go platinum
  • Sometimes I feel like no one listens to me...or my damn reviews.  I am always right! When they understand that life will be better.
  • The song itself is alright...nothing lyrics wise...but I feel as if I was more excited about tha video he sent me last week.
  • Bah.  Too tired.

New Music: Adebisi - Cadillac Music




  • A few things about this song.
  • The beat sounds as if it was made in FruitLoops
  • I think his vocals need to be a tad higher...kill the engineer that mixed that down!
  • The lyrics were sub-par...I have a very fine tuned Rass Kass ear for that.  Not something I was a fan of
  • The flow on the song, however, was not that bad...but the beat drowned that out.  Not only that it just became a task to listen to those damn trumpets.  I guess not?

New Music: Rockstar Feat Maxx -Lol, I forgot the name already




I had to bump some Jay Electronica HARD to get this dribble out of my mind. Honestly, the song is so bad it is worth the download. With terrible lyrics...a flow that does not even make sense, and Maxx's voice sounds like a drunk chipmunk...it makes for a great song to just listen to.

Now please, do not come up in my blog saying I do not know what I am saying... My opinion matters 10x more than yours. Get on my level.

When people send me bad emails with BAD music...what do you expect happens to them? Shooot.

This song is so bad it is-call-your-friend-and-laugh-together-on-the-phone-bad.

New Music: Kanye West - Flute Flow




It has been a solid 3-4 months since I have heard Kanye West legitimately rap. The hilarious part was how good it sounded. I creeped this off of 2DopeBoyz and it sounds as if it was his demo...actually...Does anyone HAVE Kanye West's demo? I'd love to post the thing.

Now, now now, I did not really review the thing because it is 330 and I actually want to just crap out. So yea. Bare with me please.

New Music: Dj Concept - Night Series



This is for my late night blog readers. Its late. I know. No one is reading these posts tonight. It is completely understandable. However, I have to appease the people that are reading this. This is for someone sit back and just kick it too. This is what Dj Concept said,

"W.E.X.E. VOLUMES 1, 2 & 3 - Connex List Magazine Review - Volume 26"
I've said it time and time again… Nothing beats "feel-good music". Any given night in Manhattan you can find a small lounge downtown that specializes in a Soul, Funk, Jazz fusion of HipHop. DJ Concept has put together a funky collection of instrumentals, rare grooves and soulful smoke-out vibes into a double volume of goodness. W.E.X.E. is an hour-long unwinding of one's soul. Always known to follow his own path, DJ Concept draws another simple blueprint of what goes on in the lounge areas of NYC's best buddah spots. Most of these smoke-filled funk tracks have been sampled by the greats like Pete Rock, Dr. Dre, Rza, DJ Premier and so many more. Grab a pack smokes, a fine strong drink, a beautiful girl and sit back and see if you can figure out who sampled what.



I posted the other parts other nights but I am just too lazy to go and trackback to them.

New Music: Wale - Chillin




It is 3AM, my day was absolutely retarded, and I am watching an interview with Tom Cruise on Sportscenter. Magnificent.

You and I know that I do not like Wale. I do not digg his flow, and I do not digg his sound. Something that is unique to me amongst the masses that obsess over him. However, I was feeling this song a little bit...But I will say first and foremost that that beat is damn annoying.  


The beat itself is using that "Na-Na-Na" sample (my sample game is rough). However it pics back up with pianos through the end of his first beat.  

Wale's verse is complete fire and may have activated my psyche to search this dude up.  Each verse comes in and moves with the beat properly.  The flow is outstanding and he is even kind of witty with the lines.  

Damn, I renigged.

This is coming off of his debut album.

New Music: Mista Mista - I Am A Beast



I am obsessed with twitter. Everyone understands that and knows this. However, the problem with twitter is sometimes I cannot follow my messages. But, I followed this one, and I asked for music sent to me and Mista Mista was one of the first people to answer me. That was cool. I was sent a few songs, but I picked "I am a Beast" because I felt that would be the best song to showcase his lyrical capabilities.

So...I liked his flow but I hated the opening line due to my hatred for Lil Wayne but that is just me. Lyrics wise, to be honest it just seemed like a normal pride/bringing up track. So I was not expecting too much from that lyricswise...but regardless the song is alright. Nothing special.
