This premiered earlier today via many radio stations - what say you?

June ft. Kool & AB3 "Obnoxious"

June ft. Kool & AB3 "Obnoxious" (prod. by Ron Browz): Buck Marley has been doing a bang-up job of covering The Month of June; while I haven't POSTED all of the joints, if you peep the .zip files I include in the daily playlists, you'll see a grip of them. He passed me this Ron Browz-produced cut over today, and its interesting... that bassline sounds sick right there. That sound is not typical to Hip-Hop, but I am feeling it. I might need that instrumental...

F. Stokes "Pretty Shit": Here's another cut from the homey F. Stokes; this is one of those tracks that I can't do anything else but listen to when its on. It's one of those gritty, real life situation type tracks - topic is domestic violence, but in the sense that we're hearing both snippets of the ensuing argument as well as fragments of what's going on, mentally, during said argument. Thought provoking shit. Stokes hit me with an e-mail detailing himself. Dude keeps it way real. Check it out.

Offshore Drilling On FrostClick!

1 Comment »

Earlier this year, I featured FrostWire when they featured Black ELement's A Major Minority project on their ill P2P site. Over the last few weeks, I've been in talks with peeps over at FrostWire (whattup Kademlia?!?!), who spoke to my homey Hav about Offshore Drilling and possibly putting it on FrostWire. And sure enough, after what seems like a bit of back-and-forth making sure we had all ducks in a row, FrostWire has featured Offshore Drilling, and offered it up for download! I did a nice lil' write-up over there, touching on the project, but if you check this site (or many of the blogs who bigged it up - thanks!), you should be up on it. It's just dope to have a dope project that I helped put together not only getting that love, but making marks outside of my normal circle of life. You feel me?

And remember when I spoke on Offshore Drilling hitting the CMJ Top 40 Hip-Hop Charts last week? I found CMJ's Replay blog, which has a .PDF of that week's journal up (here's a mirror just in case that disappears). And just so you know - this ain't the end; it's definitely just begun. Keep an ear to the ground.

EDIT Here's a pic of Offshore Drilling from FrostWire's welcome screen! Props to @gubatron.

Well, maybe "A Milli", but that's if you're with Kobe's trophy wife at the bank.

Slaughterhouse Backs Joe Budden

No Comments »

As if this is a shock, the SlaughterHouse is backing Joe Budden in his war of words with Method Man:

“With all due respect, I think [Joey] would tear Method Man a new asshole and that’s just my personal opinion,” said Royce resolutely. “Let’s just keep it all the way funky. Nobody means no disrespect, man. It’s like when Allen Iverson crossed over Jordan. It’s like, ‘Come on, man. He just got new legs.’”

Ortiz broke it down, differentiating between lyricist and MC. “Mcing comes with a whole bunch of things,” he explained. “I’ve seen a Method Man show and seen how he rocked it so I’m answering this as a fan and not being biased to my group. They both have strong points as MCs but Joe Budden’s clearly the better lyricist.”

Crooked also sided with Budden, saying, “If them two get on a song right now, [Joe’s] gonna have the best verse,” he said. “That’s just what it is. It ain’t even about being biased. That’s like if I get on a song with Em right now, I don’t know If I’m gonna have the best verse.”

Not a shock at all, but I am in agreeance. I love Meth's work, but in a lyrical test of wit, I don't think Meth could fuck with Budden. I'm tired of all the TALK, though - where's the tracks!?

I've Been To Hell...


I've been to Hell, and the Devil is a female who stands 6'2, weighing 220lbs EASY.

See, God rest the dead. My co-worker passed earlier this year - without going into too many details, dude drank himself to the point where his body shut down. Damn shame, dude was in his 40s and looked like he was 65, all crippled up. A real fucking mess. Now, we've been working w/ one man down for a few months, and shit can be tough. Our department hasn't shut down, but we need some help, so when my supervisor said they were going to be interviewing for a temp., I was all for it.

Now, before I dip into the nightmare we've lived in for 6 weeks, let me just tell you that I have a co-worker who isn't the team lead but wants to be. I'm gonna call her M.L., short for Marlboro Light, because that's what she smokes. She wanted to make sure we got the right person, so she sat in on the interviews. She interviewed the Devil, AKA Helltemp, and said "hey, this might work, but she is going to have a problem getting along with Haitian Jack" (Haitian Jack is another co-worker)... I said whatever, if it works, it works.

OK, let me tell you that I've never been so annoyed at work in my LIFE! The day Helltemp started, no one wanted to help her - which is par for the course. I am the asshole who says shit like "I'll train her on some stuff", and come to find out, I sort-of have some history with her. Well, first things first, this nigga I'll call Chubbypimp hit me up on the sly like "Yo watch out for that girl, everything she says is a lie"; it reminded me of Memento, where Leonard wouldn't believe anything "Teddy" said because his Polaroid had a note that read "Don't Believe His Lies" or whatever. So she starts talking... and talking... and talking. Which is fine, but what the fuck? Where's your notepad? Where's your off button? Bitch can I take the batteries out? I find out that the chick is "married" (more on that later) to a nigga who used to manage this Big Box store that I part-timed at like 5 years ago. She apparently worked there as well, and tried to tell me that I even worked a Saturday evening with her, but I a) was long gone during the time period she placed and b) would've remembered working with Goliath.

Mind you, I know way more than I need to know about this chick, which is probably my fault. While my tweets about work-related hate are funny, that's also an outlet for me, so I can NOT say the shit I want to say to these pinheads. But I digress...

The bit about her marriage is a story altogether. The nigga she was "married" to is a fucking mack-a-roni. I knew for a FACT that he was a mack-a-roni, because I had to previously listen to his fiasco with a former crack-addicted meatball at the job, who ended up having static with Helltemp. The thing is, homegirl would slip up: another fact I know is that once you are married, you stop using terms like boyfriend or girlfriend, you know? At least I did. On her Facebook page, her shit said "engaged", which further let me know the bidness. Bust it, though - she told me the nigga was hardly there. Not like he would come home late... nah, the nigga lived there like half a week at a clip, or just didn't come home.

Say what?

Now, while all of this is going on, I'm doing my damnest to train her - was even told that she picked up on shit quicker than most people would. What's crazy is - she didn't retain shit. Don't let her go home on a Friday and be asked to run a report we trained on all week - she'd hit me up every step like "now what?" or "what's this?"... no retention what-so-ever! While our building is going through renovations, I'm sitting across the room from my group, so I'm having to getup and help her 10, 12 times a day? I wore the fucking rug out with my back and forth!

And on top of all this, the bitch is pregnant with the mack-a-roni's baby! Yes, she started a job three months pregnant, and had no intention of telling anyone. I know because she is a stupid blabbermouth, and told me (even though I kind of picked up on it when she asked about benefits and shit - you know you're on a 90 day probation, right?)... whatever, that's just deep, because now I know this fucking big secret and feel like a snitch nigga if I tell my supervisor. And then I have to have the guilt of "oh what if this bitch gets the job, then goes on maternity later in the year - will my boss ask me if I knew?" shit... bad situation, fam.

One afternoon, Helltemp informed me that the Mack-A-Roni was in a South Carolina hospital, essentially on his deathbed. She had no idea where the nigga was, no hospital name, room #, nothing. OK does that sound right to you? If I got sick out of town, my wife would be hellbent on finding out where the shit I was - not even knowing where her man is is not even on the fucking menu! And this chick accepted it, and kept it moving. She don't know this, but I had a feeling she was shullbitting me about the "marriage" right then. Whatever. Weeks of this, with a nigga in the hospital, getting worse and worse - and somehow you have no thoughts like "maybe I need to take a day or 2 off and be with him". Blah blah, he's given 6-9 months to live. No cause for alarm, nothing.

The nigga died this weekend. RIP to the Mack-A-Roni.

Now, no disrespect to the death or to the situation, but this nigga macked to the GRAVE! How about Helltemp wasn't even his only chick! How about Mack-A-Roni wasn't in S.C. at all - the nigga was like 10 minutes away in another town with his real wife?!?! A bitch that Helltemp and I worked with at the Big Box, a bitch who KNEW about his thing with Helltemp for like a year and change prior!

Talk about shit luck.

Now as sad as all of this is, the chick still has to go. I sympathize with her trying situation and all, but her work ethic is kind of crap. Whether its cussin' a bit too loud to always coming around my desk talking about her gas, or just loud talking in general. Or should I break down the numerous reports and projects I try training you on, only to have me continuously need my assistance in EVERYTHING? What about her already having taken 3 or 4 days off, in a 90-day probation?

Not to mention Helltemp and M.L. being the ones who have beef, and not Hatian Jack?!?!?! Bust it: M.L. would straight try and son Helltemp for ANYthing. I had a feeling they didn't get along, but when I have one hitting me by e-mail while the other is at my desk, both complaining about the other? My fucking head is spinning.

As yours probably is, and you're just reading this.

Long story (a bit) short, Helltemp came to my desk and told me that either tomorrow (Friday) is her last day, or she'll be going to another department. I got a feeling the other department won't have shit to do with her after an interview... especially if this bitch tells them that she plans on being out for 3 days next week. Yeah, I'm hoping this is "peace out", but knowing my luck, the bitch won't go away.

I do promise this: if Helltemp does NOT leave after tomorrow, expect a shitload-more posts breaking down her fuckery. It might aggravate me, but I need to get this shit out of my system or I'm liable to crack.


So yeah, I've been to hell... its hot and it smells like feces. And the Devil is a 6'2, 220+ pound white chick who thinks she is cooler/more ghetto that she truly is. And I want out!

If you've been a smart negus, you'd have known most of these tracks just by following my constant coverage of the trifecta known as Brokn.Englsh, including "TCBY", which was featured on last summer's The Lighthouse Project. This tape features a lot of ish that's leaked from them in the last year, as they prepare to drop their album, Drawing Board. Remember "Cherry Popper"? Yeah, expect more like that.

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of June 10, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

Our commentary this week focused on the passing of Blues Music Legend KoKo Taylor, what is REALLY important folks should get out of Jay-Z's "D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)" track, 21st Century economic class issues in the Black Community and some other things here and there.

This week, we had a great interview with independent Hip-Hop artist on the rise Swazy Styles (

Some of the topics we covered with this talented MC included his foundation growing up and getting into the music industry in New York City before moving to Florida, the difference between the NY & FL music scenes, the overall grind a successful independent artist needs to make to have a solid foundation, his upcoming mixtape & album projects, how staying grounded is a great thing overall in life, much less entertainment and more!

Due to the length of this week's interview, we do not have new Black Agenda Report or Direct EFX segments this week.

Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast here on - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.

Kid Hum's Offshore Drilling compilation dropped on this very blog about a month ago, and the word is that its charted on CMJ's Top 40 Hip-Hop releases! For some unheards, that's pretty damn good! Respect to everyone who downloaded/shared the project, all the talented individuals who contributed their craft to making this a great project. Working on getting it up on FrostWire - hold tight, torrenters!

I actually really mess with this. I'm not sure who Marie Digby is, but I like hearing Hip-Hop reinterpreted like this, especially by pretty women with great voices:
