Yeah you heard it first... Something special is in the works. I been told The RZA is behind this & that the Wu have been recording all new material. The information on this is "sensitive", however, a "leak" song might be coming soon. Stay tuned...
In the meantime... I attached the album cover to "The RZA Presents Killa Beez: Return of The Swarm. Remember that album... shit I do like it was yesterday
So I have not been able to remove this guys tape from my car. To be honest...a few girls I hang out with love it. Now...I gave it a bad review when I first listened to it...however...now...I find myself listening to it too.
I grew accustomed to it.
Tapes kinda dope.
I guess the thing that turned me off was his attitude to bad reviews that he displayed on Twitter...it was like...come on. Accept the review and keep moving on.
Then someone commented on my review and said no one reads my blog.
Dude's flow is nice. To be honest I do favors for friends on this site. That is true. Because of that, I cannot really enjoy what gets put out most of the time. It plagues me. However, my tall as friend Gabe, dropped this dope shit off to me.
BTW. How was Trads last night?
Also, apparently this dude was signed to Travis' label...hmmm.

I reached out to Senor Kaos for a song for the Fail Whale mixtape (he thought I was trying to marry him lol) because I dig Kaos' music, and the track he sent didn't disappoint. Neither did this one.
I've known the homie Mazzi (S.O.U.L. Purpose) for a few years now. We've crossed paths in New York, Miami, and of course Atlanta on the regular. However in the years we've known each other, we've never had to the chance to work on any music together... Until now. Mazzi reached out too me with this joint produced by Jake One, and well... you can figure out the rest from there.
I get a lot of bad music. When Waxx and I twitted the contest for the last spot on our tape...I managed to get A TON of bad music. But thats cool though...keep sending me music people. Keep working on it. I did not respond to all of the emails but I tried my best. Anyway, I checked this one song (it was after the deadline) but I thought it was dope enough to be posted.
This post is not about Asher... so stop looking at him. QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT TO RAPPERS: send a picture with your music, it makes life easier for the blogger (i.e. me) which in turn might give you a better review...see?
So yeah, Boogs is kind of a breath of fresh air. No disrespect to some of the rappers sending us music, but why? smh
Boogs flow is pretty effortless, he has style on the mic. This Charles Hamilton beat is dope.
uhhhh I have no attention span today.. oh what's that..
Since I missed last week (I'm Sorry) I will post what I would have posted last week. Rafael Casal was one of the first poets I remember seeing on Def Poetry. I thank him for this poem for the simple fact that as a woman, sometimes we don't know that there are men out there who want to see us without makeup, who will accept a woman with her flaws. We all fall victim to soceity's expectations. Most women feel like they have to be skinny with a face full of makeup and 5 inch heels to even get a second look from men. What I'm learning as I go along is men want a woman with some meat on her (for the most part) and prefer their lady to go light on the makeup. Once that gets through to women, maybe the upcoming generation of girls will have a fighting chance...
"Fuck Barbie and Ken they are the reason girls arms are slit they are the reason 12 year old girls think skinny is a compliment"
See if you can keep up with this poem. Took me a few times to absorb everything he said. Saul Williams is an AMAZING poet. His flow and delivery is better then 85% of your favorite rappers. He has a presence that draws your attention and demands your respect. He went into so many different flows in this poem, from reading off the paper to addressing the crowd directly. "Coded languages" is a poem you cant put in a category, it just explores so many different facets of life, and the world we live in now from Hip-Hop to philosophy.
So let me help yall understand this poem. Saul Williams wrote a book 'the Dead Emcee Scrolls'. This poem, Coded language refers to the 'Graffiti Writers' and their art. And how he would decipher each "writing" and make something of it.The origin of music is the African drums, which create bass and that bass is like a heartbeat. So he named all those writers, artists and historical figures to show how they "uplift the consciousness of the whole fucking world", each a heart beat in their own respect. You can not only learn from them, but feel them.
Please listen to what he is saying, please learn something. Please veer from ignorance young people.
This dude (Jansport J) made the "We Made it '09" on the Curly Tops and Nautica Jacketstape, and I am in love with that song so youKNOW he gets a post... wooohooo
I grew up in the church. Also grew up listening to Jay-Z. So this project made perfect sense to me. I've always been amazed at the untapped samples that are prevalent in gospel music! After telling friends and showing some tracks to some friends, they became curious and wanted to hear more. What started off for my ears only is now a project available for free download.On a sidenote, I'd like to state that it is in no way my intention to offend or disrespect Gospel music with this project in any way. Rather, it is my attempt to pay homage to two genres of music that have molded my musical taste and stylings today.
