In My Opinion: Episode 2- Keelay IMO



If you weren't aware before, IMO (In My Opinion) shows are in full effect. The first show came from Chaundon(DOWNLOAD HERE) which featured music from B.I.G, Redman & Method Man. This second show comes to your courtesy of Keelay, from the production duo Keelay and Zaire. Keelay's show features music from James Brown, Jay-Z, Big L and MANY others . Fantastic mix right here! Remember, these tracks are down loadable and will go on your iPod\Zune just like any other track. Let REAL hip hop\music come into your life once again, except this time, we are doing all the hard work for you!!

Jacques and I would like to present the new segment called, "In My Opinion". It is a podcast which has an Emcee, Blogger, Journalist etc in Hip Hop discussing what IS REAL Hip Hop to them. It will contain songs from Past, Present, and Future. Each show will be completely different because of the varying backgrounds. We are trying to strengthen the community seeking REAL HIP HOP and not the nonsense we hear on the radio.

New Music: Wale - "Penthouse Anthemn"


For all those wondering what happened with Wale telling me to chill, I was making a ruckus on Twitter as usual and they caught an idea of what was going on. Both of them, with Charles spelling my name wrong, told me to chill out. O well nothing I can do. Regardless, nothing went down but I have a feeling there is more to it than meets the eye.

Anyway.

Whats up homie! Been a lil' minute. Since "The Experiment" dropped, everything has went into like the next gear. I've been working very hard and my NEXT project is almost done.

So expect a lot of quality and consistant music for the near future. Thanks for all the support - you know it's appreciated. Let them know that if they haven't downloaded The Experiment - there is a new link(above). This track - "Post-Experiment" is just addressing some of my thoughts since The Experiment dropped. It's produced by my homie K.I.D. Looking forward to your personal opinion and seeing it on the site. Hit me.
