NEW VYBEZ KARTEL "YUH LOVE"

This song is so fucking ill...Shit been on repeat!!!!
Produced by Dre Skull out on Mixpak Records NOW!!

The people that make millions....

I have stoppeed listening to the radio for the most part, stopped my cable service , and honestly I couldn't be happier. All day we hear this pre-fab garbage pushed on us as the next big thing... With that being said its amazes me the amount of money these talentless fuckholes make. To cut my rant short... Why are these musicians pretty much unknown and not swimming in lakes of money like Soulja Boy??

Twist Again

I freakin' love Twista. The man has only had like three or four songs worth a damn, but god damn, they are awesome.

Slow Jamz

Overnight Celebrity

And most recently... Wetter

What brilliant songs! I swear you put this shit on with your lady and she'll be half naked before verse 2, fully nude by the third chorus, and moaning by the next track.

There's a pretty cool remix/mashup of Overnight Celebrity. Its got bits of Underworld - Born Slippy as the backing, kind of cheesy, but well done. Punters will like it.

Here's one produced by Kanye and with some great Prince noises to compliment Twista - I Can Make You Say. Another sexy one.

Here's a baltimore-ish mix by Young Live of Diamonds on my Neck, pretty sweet!

And I'll throw in this Alchemist/Maxwell/Twista collaboration: Smile.

I need to do it faster, baby.

15 Laws of the Street

So just the other night I was playing my regular gig at Shabashabu in Raleigh, Friday night, the bar is hoppin', heads are eatin' sushi and gettin' down to some old school blast master Chris, when a funny thing happened. A gentleman inconspicuously approached me at the booth and discreetly handed me this manual of sorts - "15 Laws of the Street". I was dumbfounded and remain so, however the knowledge entombed within is invaluable. The dedication:
This is dedicated to the Street Soldiers trying to make a way from no way. We have potential beyond our knowledge, so it seems. The question is when do we begin to walk into and embrace this knowledge? Our lives are valuable and it is only when we know this in our heart of hearts that change comes about. I stand in judgement of no man."

Pretty epic.

I'm not sure what it was about my appearance that deemed me worthy of this generous gift of knowledge, maybe the mustache, maybe the KRS-1, maybe the ostrich boots or the big ass belt buckle, I'm not sure. However I'm obviously doing something right, and ladies I'm single!

I've been studying the laws of the streets, and I have to say I feel much more confident around black people. I can now recognize snitches, I know I shouldn't keep my stash at my crib, and I learned that if I want to get educated I should spend some time in prison! I'll be living much more dangerously from here out, needless to say. I can use some education.

In other news, I heard this new Vex'd track, I fucking love Vex'd, can't fucking get enough, SATURN'S REPLY, constant repeat for like two weeks!

It IS unusual.....



Don't ask why i was watching Tom Jones on youtube but, watch this amazingly creepy dance move at 0.58 till 1.12. I am scared and turned on all at once. AND AT 2.11 this dude does a chewbacca noise. I mean i have to give it up...pure talent. It takes some major balls to do Star Wars noises in a song. I bet Tom Jones bet his #2 Sax player 200 dollas he would do a chewbacca noise. At the end of the gig he was like "pay up,bitch!!!! oh and another 120 for that akward hop." You can hear some lady in the background swoon when he does the chewy at 2.14........

One of my favorite albums of all time "Check Your Head" by the Beastie Boys just got the "re-mastered and re-released" treatment.  CYH was one of my most influential albums of all time (next to Nevermind and Endtroducing).  I had it on tape from one of my brother's friends (Eddie) when I was in the 5th grade.  Totally blew me away.  Especially the instrumental tracks.  Not only did these guys rap, but they could play real instruments.  Who does that?  I can definitely say that album is a big part of the reason I play bass the way I play and eventually found my way over to the turntables.  So when I read about this being re-released yesterday you can imagine my enthusiasm.  

Anyways, it's a pretty slick deal.  I ordered my copy last night on double cd.  You can also check out a commentary of the album here, which is awesome (MCA talks about the fuzz bass).  Peace
