I read today on DOA that G.C. Coleman of the mighty Winstons died recently, or was it that recent? The wikipedia page on him says that he passed in "early 2006", and I can't find a proper page online detailing his passing. In any case, my condolences go out to his family, the surviving Winstons, and all lovers of the Amen Break.
In other news, Clinton Sparks has a FREE mixtape in promotion of the new NBA 2K7 soundtrack, compiled by the mighty Dan the Automator. You have to use iTunes to dload it, but it has loads of exclusives and sick jams. Check it out, it's well worth it.
Alix Perez has made his September 1Xtra Guest Mix available for download for FREE (download : tracklisting). There is a serious load of dubplate pressure, spanning loads of sounds. Alix is one to look out for in the 2k7, get familiar.
Did anyone catch LOST last night? Probably one of the best episodes in a while... the other eps are great, but this one set the tone. Beautiful use of everyone's personalities. Full recap to come.
I start a new job tomorrow, which means I have to get up super early, which I'm not feeling, but this will be the foot in the door of a company with longevity. Soon, my son, soon.
I'll holla at you goons tomorrow with the weekly playlist... one.

You gotta love how Freeway sounds like ASS acapella, asking "throw a beat on!" This is old, but you gotta love YouTube. Enjoy this.
The Specials "Rat Race"
Mr. Lif "Because They Made It That Way"
Sage Francis vs. Akrobatik "Super Bowl MC Battle '99"
How we went from Bob Marley to Akro, I do not know. Be safe.

I missed the bus. I was destined to talk about a bunch of shit, from the whole Fabolous getting shot/arrested for his boys stealing Sebastian Telfair's chain to the trials and tribs of ghetto parties. George Michael getting high on TV, Apple's iPod turning 5 and the new info on the next 2Pac album were also up on the chopping block. Alas, I took a long-ass trip with my boy up to Mass. to pick up the Chevy Caprice Classic he won on eBay (it looks something like this). It has been a long week, and I am in no mood to recap the lives of niggas I could give a fuck about. I apologize for not giving you my weekly dose on the wack world we live in, but until I find a new job and get out of this funk, it might be a bit before I am back on my shit. I mean, I will do my best to do my best, but I'm going through some shit right now. And don't even get me started on the latest episode of LOST... GD POLAR BEARS! And big up to that Geronimo Jackson name-check. (What, you ain't up on Geronimo Jackson!?)
I do want to give a shout out to my boy Russ; he's helped me out in a rough time, and I am in debt to him for that one. I got that Styles P for you, my duke. And I will have a new, fresh and funky edition of the shuffle for you guys very soon... until then...
