Dj Concept Mix: Bob Marley Birthday Celebration



I apologize for the lack of posts, Jacques is working and I've been in class all day while simultaneously dying a slow painful death. This cold is not getting any better.

But on a lighter, less morbid note, it's Bob Marley's birthday !... oh wait

In my freshmen year (semester) of college, one of my roomates was Haitain. She loved herself some weed and some Bob Marley so I had to look at his mug everyday because of the huge poster on the wall.

So here is a mix from DJ Concept sure to help you kick off a Bob Marley birthday celebration the right way Weed sold separately

New Video: Blu and Exile Live @ The Mezzanine


Blu and Exile Live @ The Mezzanine (San Francisco, Ca) from Blogmedown.tv on Vimeo.

I was on my Westcoast nonsense yesterday...and today I am back on that bullshit. I have not watched the video because I am sitting in a kinda crowded computer lab and I cannot give it attention. Because I am just not in the mood. Etc. Stuff happens.

Plus Drea is sick. What ever she feels...I feel.

Not necessarily because that will be weird.

Yanno.

Fashawns on the inside...check that out. I shoulda put that up front.

Mickey just shot me this over in the Gmail. Now I have not even seen it, but Curtains is kinda nice...and Skillz can flow on those yearly freestyles (I mean...be honest...what else is he REALLY known for? Ha!)

Excuse my lack of actual talking. I am a tad lazy right now...and plus I have this History quiz in an hour that I am SO studying for.

Stumbled On: J Cole Working on "The Warm Up"


J. Cole working on "The Warm Up" from Dreamville Records on Vimeo.

Just so you know...Exclusive J Cole on All Puns Intended. Word has it...one of those tracks hes working on is for me. Which means...this tape could be a lot larger than I honestly expected it to be. Thats insane, because I have been snubbed a lot lately.

Drea is sick...so I am carrying the weight on my work day.

Love you girl.

Dj Concept Mix: Undefined: The Manual Labor Sessions


Dj Concept is a close homie to this blog. Gracing us with dope mixes and exclusives on a regular basis, he has deserved his own tag. This is a mix he shot me over yesterday that I never got around to posting.

I am in a break between classes so I figured I'd get as much done as I could.

Sigh...and the Mac I am using right now really makes me fiend one. Ugh...

Here is what Concept had to say about the mix...

It's been a long time coming. We've been wanting to make this mixtape for a while but we we're waiting for the right time to explode. That time is now. Undefined supplied the heat, then Knox & Concept skilled the mix with a little help from Army Of The Pharoahs, Outerspace, Sabac, Shabaam Sahdeeq and more. All tracks produced by UNDEFINED for Crisis Center Productions / Manual Labor Music.

Where is Drea when I need her? O yea...in class. Psh. No one said she could go to school and be all educated and what not. Ahh. The morning is over which means the "Westcoastness" is over. However I will say...it was fun while it lasted. Really believe me. I had a good time.

Well, Jon Hope debuted new music on his Twitter. I follow him. He follows me. Shit happens.

Back When I Was Young: Dr Dre - "The Day The Niggaz Took Over"



Since I am on my westcoast trip this morning, this "Back When I Was Young" was of fitting of course. I mean, I do have to head to St Johns soon to get my computer fixed...but that is something we will discuss later. Now, moving on, this song was to discuss the fateful day we call..The LA Riots; basically telling the rest of the world not to get a bunch of minorities angry. I mean...shoot that would have never happened in New York.

We would have just blown shit up.

I am still on my Westcoast nonsense this morning. I mean, I know that Lee is not from LA, but Exile is. Which means that I am still on this run right now. Since I cannot listen to the song, I will go by what I received in the email (my email is going CRAZY right now.)

Jacques, you have to check out this dude Lee Bueller. I know you do knot know who duke is, but you have to take a chance and just listen...dude is nice. His tape drops Feb 14th I think? Check it out.


Sadly enough...I cannot listen to it. Regardless...if he said that it is dope music..then it probably is not. O well.

Exile - Funky Worm Chop from FWMJ on Vimeo.

So my laptop broke. Which means I have to use my brothers computer. Now that is not really a problem however, his music is being played on the other login. I do not know the password for that login. So...anything I even TRY to listen too...falls flat.

Which means no music.

Which means those songs OutaSight and SKyzoo sent me...cannot be listened too.

Which means life sucks currently.

When You Hit: Stacy Dash



This is my Second "When You Hit"
For those who didn't quite understand the first time, I'll break it down again.


Jacques and I have a section "Would You Hit?" where we bring you a lovely lady and pose the simple question, would you hit?

So this is the section one step beyond that. When you actually hit, I recommend the song to play.

Simple enough right?

Find out what song to play when you hit a girl like Ms. Stacy Dash








download here


You play Tank "Slowly".

Trust me

This is one of my favorite songs and for good reason.

Now a girl like Stacy Dash is obviously GORGEOUS.
Her eyes are beautiful and her body is perfect, skin tone works for her.

You wanna fall in love with Stacy Dash.
(Jacques does)

You do not come half-steppin with a girl like Stacy Dash, you put your all into it.
Stop acting so hard and romance a chick !!

This song is so perfect for when you finally do it (because she is not giving it up right away, everything will have to be taken.. "slowly") Patience my brother.

It has this great "Scream as loud as you want, bite me, dig your nails into my back and moan in my ear" kind of vibe.

That's the kind of sex you want with someone like Stacy Dash.

Take time to stare into her eyes, caress her body all that good stuff.

and if you've seen the
video for the song you'll see what I'm talking about








You see what I'm saying?

Enjoy your sexy time fellas, thank me later.

Music Info: Esso Interview



Esso sits down with digiwaxx.com
Jacques posted this over at flystylelife.com
Inside is the second part of the interview and a freestyle from Esso.






It's always interesting to see how rappers come into rapping. It's rare that someone starts rapping from the age of 4 and knows thats what they are gonna do with their lives.

His story is very intetersting and he tells the story well, very engaging.

Who would have known Esso graduated from Howard !

The baseball thing was expected though haha

He definately has great blog connections and that is oh so important in this day and age for upcomming rappers, as we have discussed on this blog numerous times.

Enjoy readers !

I will be interviewing soon, look out for that !!

Would You Hit?: AnnaLynn McCord



If anyone knows, I am an avid viewer of Nip Tuck. I think it is the raunchiest, smuttiest, yet nicely acted show on Television. After Rescue Me at least. Anyway, I am sitting here hanging out about to go to class and I peeped these photos of my crush AnnaLynn. Now, I know she has crazy eyes and I have spoken out against those before...but I really think she is almost one of the most gorgeous girls in Television. Really.

She cannot act for shit though.

Music Info: Cam'Ron on cover of XXL


(The Image is distorted as hell because I am on a Mac and I snatched it from Eskay...see the real picture HERE)
I apologize for this. Really...I do. I do not post much celebrity news...nor do I post any celebrity gossip. But, I am a huge fan of Cam'Ron. I know it seems completely off from someone who hates as much as I do, but, I like how entertaining he his. He used to be 10x nicer when he was in C.O.C (Digga actually hit me up on Twitter about that. Shouts to him!), but now this is something that can slide now.

He is clearly featured on the upcoming issue of XXL, which I do not read...at all. He sits down for his first interview in months and I thought that was pretty dope also.

He also has a new song out which can be found at the hop.

I will admit...

It sucks. Can I get a Hoorah for Hippocrasy(sp?)?

What self respecting woman does something like this?

She just made Karrine Steffans look like Mother Theresa.

50 gave her a fur and probably some dick money and a year supply of vitamin water *peep her drinkin it at the end of her segment*and she's eating out his hand. SMH

It's one thing to air out your man to your girlfriends over a glass of wine or a bottle of henny. But to the entire world, with the man that is trying to destroy his career????

No dice.


what the fuckkkk

I hope 50 can pay for homegirls protection... someone is gonna hurt that woman.

50 really went above and beyond though talking about his mother like that, no respect.

But for real, I think Rick Ross is finished, not that he had the hottest career out, but no diss record, youtube video or blog could undue the damage 50 just did.

A Word From The Desk: Is The Internet the New Streets?


I was turned on to a post from XXLMag.com discussing the new avenue of promotion for rappers today. The idea explicated in the piece discussed the prevalent idea that the Internet is the new "streets". While calling back memories from rappers such as Fabolous amongst others, it explained that rap has changed to the point where the Internet is the new way to break into the "game". However, it brought up the interesting point that the Internet fame could not translate into sales. It heralded to one known "Internet rapper" that made it big; Soulja Boy who went platinum not to long ago. Although he was "KiNg Of Da InTerNets" for sometime, his video was being regularly spun on the various television networks that we, as urban people watch.


The idea of this piece that I am writing is to say that the way artists make money today has changed.  Mickey Factz might never go platinum.  However, if we look in retrospect...how much emphasis is really put on an artist going platinum anymore? As we continue listening to rap being put out, less references to the feat of selling "A Millie" are being spoken over these EQ'd up hundred thousand dollar beats. Instead of focusing on selling albums...the new slew of artists have focused on endorsements from companies. Wale and Nike...Mickey Factz and Supras...Charles Hamilton and Skull headphones.

I could be wrong but...why would any of these artists wait to release an LP? They were just on the cover of one of Hip Hop's top magazines. They should have the drive to sell "A Millie"...right?

Wrong.

Many of the freshman have yet to capture mainstream success...Kid Cudi will likely never reach the popularity of his song "Day N Nite" (which only became popular when Jim Jones spat over it). Realistically being the "KiNg Of Da InTerNets"  does not translate into album sales, no, probably just a sale of headphones.

New Music: K Sparks Feat Tina Quallo - "Ghetto Child"


Morning people. This is a track that K Sparks shot over to me...and it makes for the 10th Monday I have posted his stuff without fail. The song is about the ghetto and what-not. Although I think it is a subject that has been tried, true, abused, and used, well...lets listen.

"For this song I linked up with my label mate Tina Quallo and Jazz sax player Bea Bell...on this record we talked about our experiences within the hood from a ghetto child perspective...Tina's talented and has a lot of dope records on the way...Cartel did the beat...real laid back jazz vibe...I'll check ya'll next week."
-K. SPARKS



I will be honest...songs on the Ghetto I think are completely overdone and over used. Now, this is something that might sound insensitive...but I lived in the "ghetto" for 5 years until we moved up out of there to the 'burbs.

Keeping this in mind, I say that most of the time I pass on these tracks. However, listening to this, one thing stuck in my mind. This girl has a nice voice.

I do not know who Tina Quallo is, but I will say that her voice is something that is pretty nice.

The song itself is pretty laidback and nothing too special. Check it out.

Drea's Def Poetry Monday's: "My Best Friend (Hip Hop)"



In case you missed last Monday, I am going to post a Def Poetry video to help start out your week right.

This week it's Scriyl & Riva "My best friend (Hip Hop)"

more inside yall



More Information at the hop!



I have listened to this poem about a hundred times. It's near and dear to me.

"God's lying see hip hop is dying inside"
"Rewind"


Scrilya has a nice flow on this poem, everything he did was perfect.

The hip hop I think they are talking about is old school hip hop
"Grand Master Flash, The Furious 5"
It's dead. R.I.P.

I used to think all of hip hop was dying a slow death, especially when soulja boy was gettin shine and the dirrty south rap was gettin more play then east coast rap.

But as I did more research I came across New York's underground rap scene (thanks in large part to this blog) and I am more then pleased. There is hope for Hip Hop.

The hope lies within the real hip hop fans, to support legitamate artists.

I'm not gonna talk this subject to death though... like beating a dead horse.

His flow seems rushed all the time. But not a good rushed...something that could be 10x better. I mean...his concepts are dope..but does he need to mention ACG's all the time? This is a general statement...ahh well.

New Music: Charles Hamilton - "Pleasant Overthinking"


New Charles Hamilton is always welcomed on my blog. Shouts to Chaz C for shooting me this on the email immediately. However, I think it is from OnSmash...so I will give them credit. Full download and review at the jump.



Charles is an avid reader of this blog...so I always treat him to my completely unbiased reviews of his music. First thing that struck out to me after listening to this song about twice...is cut the singing out! I did not like the voice on the chorus, however, it was not a bad chorus.

His flow is even more laidback here and it fits with an extremely dope beat. Although I was not invited! not able to attend the video shoot yesterday, I wanted to tell him that his production surpasses his rhymes in my opinion.

He should produce more for other people. It would be pretty dope.
