Kanye West ft. Young Jeezy "Amazing"

1 Comment »

Kanye West ft. Young Jeezy "Amazing": Those BoBO niggas are definitely true to their word. Even if the conference call was a bit of a tease, they did say "Amazing" would be leaking in 15 minutes. Taken from 808's & Heartbreak, which is set to drop Nov. 24th?

Bonus Beats Ruby Hornet has transcribed 'Ye's nutty conference call comments.

Bonus Beats 2DB has posted two more Yeezy tracks up.

Bonus Beats Here's audio from Kanye's rant on the BoBO Conference call.

I was checking out 88 Keys' album this morning. I have been procrastinating on a drop I'm gonna do for Flawless Hustle about when I first discovered 88 Keys damn near 10 years ago. I am not gonna say The Death Of Adam is wack, but I think I need to give it a serious listen. In any case, 2DB threw up this video that Okayplayer premiered:

Kanye West Conference Call Live-Blog

No Comments »

The homey Enigmatik usually covers the BoBO Conference Calls, but since he will be out, I'll step in and keep you guys abreast to what Kanye West is talkin' 'bout...

1:38PM: While I appreciate them being thankful for my patience, you'd think a Hip-Hop Conference Call would have some gutter hold music.

1:39PM: Did you guys peep this article on MTV? When shall BP3 drop? I'm guessing summer 2K9.

1:44PM: Finally, we're live.

1:51PM: Whoa, how come when someone says "introduce yourself", a nigga has to go into a nutty 16. Then he says, you already know, but I don't know who it is.

1:52PM: Oh, it was punk-ass Ace Hood and DJ Khaled. I'm tired of that sandnigga.

1:53PM: If Gutta's album (which drops Nov. 18th) is a classic, I will drink coffee for an entire week.

1:55PM: The last thing I need is Ace Hood's contact info.

1:58PM: It's odd to hear Khaled not yelling. I almost don't recognize his voice.

2:02PM: Hey Ace, word to the wise: if Khaled is your mouthpiece, let him answer the Q's. You sound dumb with that "um to be honest, I don't even be knowing..."

2:04PM: Kanye in 2 seconds.

2:06PM: 2 minutes later; 'Ye is "playing his joint" to some cats out in the UK. Hearing him speak is kind of like speaking to drunk bums. You want to laugh, but then you realize he is really saying some shit.

2:07PM: Yo, he just said making music was a lot better than suicide. Christ, its that real, 'Ye?!

2:09PM: Props to the "nigga perspective" comment. Thing is, no matter how Pop they become, I really don't think that 50 would rhyme on these tracks, Yeezy.

2:11PM: Kanye's album is getting pushed up; they said the 24th (a Monday)? 'Ye said it's b/c they want those Thanksgiving sales, which ain't a bad look. Drop it on Nigga Friday. Also, BoBO will be leaking "Amazing" today. And now Jay dropping in February?

2:13PM: Who else makes music saying "What Would Jeezy Do"?

Alright, so another BoBO Conference Call is a wrap; 'Ye is dropping earlier than expected, Jay is dropping in Feb. 2009. Ace Hood is flopping dropping next week, and "Amazing" will be leaked on this blog in the next half hour or so. Holla.

This pack is way more Hip-Hop-centric than Vol. 1. The Dr. Dre edit flips "Deep Cover" into some nasty Club-style bizness, and the other edits accentuate the instrumental a lot. Nice things you can bounce off the originals...

Adrienne Bailon... In The Nude?

1 Comment »

I'm assuming you guys have heard about 3LW/Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon's nude pics leaking on the internet. Well, semi-nude. While she has a bra on, she does do a few ass shots. Egotastic has the pics. My thing is this: one, you'd think these Disney-affiliated chicks would learn from the past chick's mistakes (although, Vanessa did end up in HSM3, so this might be calculated). 2, what's really good with just taking off her panties? Does she fuck with her bra on, ala Kim Kardashian (maybe Adrienne's boyfriend, Robert Kardashian, saw the porno Kim made and got hooked)? 3rd, yo, she's fly. I'm more of a fan of thick-ass Sabrina, but Adrienne is no slouch at all.

EDIT Looks like homegirl is tryna sue the cats who stole the laptop and leaked the photos. She's also sorry for the photos leaking and fans being upset, although I imagine she's got a shitload of new fans b/c of that ass!

The homey Stakato hit me with 5 .rars full of tunes. They are strictly DJ-friendly edits (added drums, extended intros, cutting out "unnecessary" bits), complete with BPM tags, of tracks that set ANY good party off. Since he hit me with 5 packs, I'm dropping one a day. This first one features an edit of Foxy's "Mademoiselle"; the cool this about this is that MF DOOM sampled this for "Mic Line" from the first Monsta Island Czars album, but I had no ID on the original... until yesterday.



Cerrone - Super Nature
Fatback Band - Goin To See My Baby
Foxy - Mademoiselle
Patrice Rushen - You Remind Me

So choice. Watch out for Round 2 tomorrow.

I wanna shout out my nigga, JunClassic, for connecting me with J-Zone. I feel like such a fanboy when I get out-the-blue e-mails from cats who have made albums that I thoroughly enjoyed for years. J-Zone's J-Zone presents... Chief Chinchilla: Live @ The Liqua Sto LP, which is both an homage and a satire on malt-liquor adverts on urban cities (remember that Philly/Colt 45 graf fiasco from this summer? how about those classic St. Ides commercials?). I must say, it's that classic Zone that you've grown to love... or despise. Peep the video for "Can I Get A Sip?":

This is the final piece of J-Zone's four-part trailer for this amazing album (which you can cop via Chief Chinchilla's MySpace page RIGHT NOW); check out Parts 1, 2 and 3 as well.

I've seen females get mad because their bra strap was showing. I've seen chicks who get hot when their panties are seen through a sheer pair of white pants. Never have I seen a dress that was specifically made to showcase whatever undergarments you are rocking, and then see a female wear some basic white jawns underneath it. What sense does this make?

Wasn't this originally Ron Browz' track? I guess he took Rosenberg's advice and just handed it over to Jimmy?

The homey Wafeek just hit me with this teaser to a video for a track from The Lighthouse Project (Disc 2). That beat is so epic:

Beyonce "Diva"

Beyonce "Diva" (prod. by Bangladesh): This is what happens when a producer blows up off one beat and then is asked by everyone to recreate it. Beyonce gets on that "Sasha Fierce" shit, and while I am not mad at her on this one, definitely comes off as some bandwagon-jumping ish.

Big up to Benzi and the DDS for this one.

DJ Cable x RTD: Crooked I The Block Obama Mini Mix

No Comments »

I hit up DJ Cable with the unmixed Block Obama cuts last month, and he flipped it into a def mini mix. He leaked this earlier today, a few hours after I got word that the cover (done by the homegirl Uri) was completed. Great minds procrastinate alike? Who knows, all I'm saying is MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK!

This is a celebration, bitches... enjoy yourself!

Go 'head and cry, old man. I know you weren't crying tears of joy, the way you threw Obama under the bus. You were recalling that infamous scene from Menace II Society on some "you know you done fucked up now" shit. Don'tcha? You know you done fucked up! We now have a Black President, and you tried to shit on him EARLY. Your weight = n o t h i n g. Karma is a bitch, ain't it?

No Comments »

This is such classic material, I'm glad Cipha Sounds unearthed these tapes. Circa 2001, The Roc-A-Fella family took over Hot 97 and blew the airwaves up with a host of freestyle fury. Check out part one, with Bleek, Beans and others going for theirs over "Who Shot Ya?":

Shouts to Dallas for upping this, and layering the album cut over the video. This is my fav cut off the CD, and one of my fav jawns of 2008.
