Freeway "When They Remember"

1 Comment »

Freeway "When They Remember": No, this is not new. This is off of Freeway's Free At Last LP. I'm just in a funky ass mood, and thinking about my homey locked down. He's been away for about a year and a half, and isn't due back for at least another year and a half. If not a lil' longer. I forget. I gotta send him a kite, post haste.

Anyways, when he touches down, I dream of DJing his welcome home party. I drop this as everyone raises their glasses up, and then pull that shit back mid-verse. He'll smile, then I'll re-drop it.

If that really happens, don't say khal told you so. Just be like "that nigga seen the future".

"Beer Before Liquor" (Oct. 2008)

No Comments »

I've seriously cut down on my drinking. While I used to be downing Heinekens everyday after work for the better part of 3 years, I'm now more of a weekend drinker, with MAYBE a glass of wine one weeknight. And even when I do drink, its mostly a 40 of OE or something. Anyways, a few years back, in an Olde English-haze, I discovered dubstep from that infamous Dubstep Wars set from Mary Anne Hobbs' show, and was hooked, primarily b/c its an extension of the classic Dub sounds I know and love. I don't know if its BECAUSE of the malt liquor or not, but something about Dubstep and beer always does me right.

Now, I've also promised a return to the Dub Sessions series I haven't touched on since Sept. 2007; to be honest, I've done mixes, including like 3 Dubstep mixes, but haven't been happy with them. I'd been wanting to do more actual "mixing", and I think doing those mixes helped me. Here's the first of the Dubstep mixes I am putting out, spanning a host of tunes I've loved from the last year+. I'm happy with how this one came out, but I didn't get to fit in some dubs that I've gotten... so I have to do another one. That one might get a bit weirder...

"Liquor before beer, you're in the clear. Beer before liquor, never been sicker!"

See ya later, HBO

No Comments »

I've had a TV in my bedroom since '86, '87. Yeah, I was kind of young, but my mom wanted to make sure I had NES to my self (thanks, mom). Anyways, ever since I was a lil' yout, I watched a shitload of TV, and saw many a movie on Home Box Office (a station that originated out of NJ). This weekend, due in part to this lovely recession that's going on, I ended up deciding to get rid of the "Silver Package" that Cablevision offers, which included losing all of my HBO (and HBO-affiliated) channels. No more HBO On Demand, either.

I'm not terribly upset, for I really only watched shit like The Sopranos, OZ and Curb Your Enthusiasm On Demand, anyways. It's a big chunk of my life, though - I swore by HBO, back when Prism and Showtime still had good programming, I stayed true to HBO. From the hilarious comedy specials to groundbreaking documentaries, and the emergence of the Cable TV Drama, I road until the wheels fell off.

I won't miss HBO, unless a new program starts up. But it feels weird as fuck.

Jeryl is one of the first cats to ever give me a chance in terms of writing about DnB, and he's grown into a true friend. If it wasn't for him, I'd not be the Editor over at Dogs On Acid. Nor would my label idea be a serious thing (shouts to Nu Urban by the way). I'd say I'm forever in debt to him, but he'd just laugh it off and tell me to keep doing what I'm doing.

Learning of his medical condition has fucked me up, because no matter how ill Q-Tip was during A Tribe Called Quest's heyday, without Phife, that stew would've been kind of sour.

The Backwards B

3 Comments »

This lady is saying that she got robbed and beaten because she had a McCain sticker on her whip. The attacker even carved a B (backwards) into her cheek.

What? Why would someone carve a BACKWARDS B? What would that even symbolize? Why was this Texan in Pennsylvania this week, and got attacked, the same time McCain and his cronies were in PA campaigning?

I love how McCain and Palin have already spoke to her, like that was necessary...

Why does this reek of bullshit? EDIT Because it was. About 40 minutes ago, WTAE posted this story, where this woman admitted to faking her claims of being attacked by a pro-Obama attacker. The depths some individuals will go. Fuck you, Ashley Todd. Fuck you very much for trying to make Black people and the Obama movement look like some ridiculous coonery. And ROFL @ McCain and Palin going to this chick's aid. Wipe that shit off your cheeks.

Yo, OK let's take this from the top. I'm glad that my people are excited about this election. We need to be. And when I say "my people", while I am directing it at Black People in general, I am also speaking to The Hip-Hop Nation, who have obviously latched onto something powerful here. But "The Obama Dance"? What kind of buffoon coonery is this:



What's fucked up is that, lyrically, dude mentions nothing about Obama, aside from the obligatory "change" commentary. It's more of a "let me get some coverage in these political times", which I understand. Not knocking the hustle. But, just, no.

Oh, and it gets worse the longer its on.

Jay-Z Dedicates "99 Problems" To McCain

No Comments »

My wife just hit me with this drop from Political Punch, speaking on Jay-Z's performance last week, where he apparently dedicated "99 Problems" to John McCain and "a homegirl" that remained nameless, although he did say she says "you betcha" a lot.

Does this anger you?

I'm not mad at it. While I do not applaud or condone Hova for indirectly calling Sarah Palin the bitch McCain's having problems with, this by far is low-level shit compared to the barbs being slung at Barack Obama, from being called an "arab" (as if that in and of itself is bad), as well as chants at McCain rallies where heads have openly called Obama a terrorist, and said "kill him". If one of our elder statesman can throw some gas on the political fire with a smile, I'm really not mad at all.

You know? Because if the Republicans win this year, that 1 problem could sink our country... and at the end of the day, Jiggaman still wants you to know how to vote on Nov. 4th:



And as a side note, with this song being Jay's "last hurrah" at a point where he was retired, and the controversy the video brought up, could this be Jigga's most notorious track?

The Roots x Brobee

Every afternoon when I get home, my 2 year old is immersed in Yo Gabba Gabba!. What kills me is that the show is crazy urban quirk. Not too many kids shows feature stars like The Roots, Mya, Tony Hawk and Sean Kingston cameos, while having chiptune remixes of the entire show at the end of each show. Nor do they have Biz Markie teaching the lil dunns how to beatbox, again on every show. It's damn odd, and Lance Rock is crazy suspect, but whatever, lil nigga is happy, right?

Damn, man. Ice T, hats off to you. I'm hoping you guys remember Ice's Power LP, with the iconic pose. KING found Darlene Ortiz, aka Ice T's ex-wife, and spoke to her about that space in time. Ice, you are definitely mack of the year if that's your old shorty, and your new shorty is just as, damn... ill.

Shouts to Nah Right for the heads up.
