Saturday, July 25, 2009
June 25th 2009 was a crazy day for me. I never thought after 13 weeks of freestyle commericials and promotion that the king of pop and one of the most influential people in music would die on the day I release a free album. "A Good Album On A Bad Day" is NOT a dedication record to Michael Jackson, I dedicate my music to all of those who've blessed us with their presence. This song is a thank you to everyone who has supported my music.

Enjoy your weekend - I know I'll try to!
Another day, another track from Jay. I decided to compile a mix of tracks that have floated around since Jay-Z announced his impending Blueprint 3 album. I fully realize that the majority of these tunes won't make the final cut. Either way, check this mix and follow the progression of songs released and see if you're still amped for the album droppin' on 9/11/09.
Dead Presidents 3
When The Money Goes
Jockin' Jay-Z (Dope Boy Fresh)
Swagger Like Us f/Kanye West, Lil' Wayne & T.I.
Brooklyn (We Go Hard) f/Santigold
D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)
Run This Town f/Rihanna & Kanye West
You're Welcome f/Mary J. Blige
What say you? Personally, unless Hov comes back to the essence and really delivers, I have a feeling that my (digital) copy of Reasonable Doubt will get more burn than Blueprint 3. I did a mix on the first episode of RTD Radio with my favorite Hov tracks in them, and maybe I'm jaded, or just reading too much into a lot of things, but I'm not sure he can fuck with himself. Like he became the rap Michael Jordan, for good and ill.
Enjoy this, and help me find some new blood.
On my second listen, Kanye's verse > Jay's 2nd verse > Jay's first verse > Rihanna's hook.
Christ, YN FTW.
EDIT Young Guru hit YN with the mastered, dirty CDQ [M4A \ MP3].
(NOTE: I'm listening via this ill Nobex software on my BlackBerry, so times might be off a smidge)
9:33AM - Saw YN's tweet that the record was supposed to drop around 9:11AM (get it?), but word from Ciph and Rosenberg is that the record isn't even in their possession - they're waiting for it to upload? Sheesh...
9:35AM - "Successful" is the only track from So Far Gone that I actually appreciate.
9:39AM - Looks like "Run This Town" is over on Jay's MySpace page, but is currently unavailable.
9:41AM - YN called the rain delay for "Run This Town" - drats!
9:44AM - Ciph is getting into his Flex zone... "OK!"
9:45AM - Finally hearing it; Rihanna got the hook in the intro. Jay proclaiming Roc Nation...
9:46AM - If you gonna rock the "KINDA TOUGH, HOV!" shit, shoulda just had Flex come into the station.
9:47AM - So far, I'm diggin' Hov's flows on the track... the beat is on that marchin' shit, ala "Brooklyn (Go Hard)" and shit. 'Ye rappin' on the 3rd verse.
9:48AM - Kanye did his thing on that!
9:49AM - End verdict: I'm not mad at the track. Having just heard it for the first time, I'm admittedly not blown away (after "D.O.A.", I wasn't expecting to be), but maybe it's just my being tired of Rih's wailing shit (that record she had with T.I. worked my nerves), but I think its a cool one. Jay sounds hungry, I love the way he's flowing on this, and hearing Kanye pick up his pen on the third verse really sounded ill. I need to hear this on better speakers (no diss to you, cranBerry, but I couldn't blast you in my cubicle). So, what say you YN? NMC? Who will have the rip(s) first?

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of July 22, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.
Our commentary this week focused on the interesting occurrences & situations with our U.S. Justice System & Black Men in the recent arrests of Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Wise Intelligent of Poor Righteous Teachers and Paradise Gray of the X-Clan.
We also touched base on the recent freeing of football player Michael Vick and singer Chris Brown's YouTube apology and the differences between how media portrays the two men after their legal cases and punishments have been resolved. The FuseBox Radio Broadcast's commentary also touched on some other topics of discussion here and there.
We had a great interview this week on the FuseBox Radio with Motivational Speaker, Author & Business Consultant Jawar (http://www.jawarspeaks.com).
Some of the topics we talked about was his past history, how he decided to get into his businesses - the music industry, writing & promoting books (author of over 20+ successful titles) and lastly being an independant movitivational speaker, advice about how to become a successful entreprenuer without selling yourself out, his latest book & radio projects and some other dope things!
This week we do have new Black Agenda Report segment. The Direct EFX segments will return at the end of the HBCU's college summer break period in September.
