Spotted over on Rap Radar. So the Budden/Meth shit comes to a head around the time Blackout 2 drops, and Budden catches a two-piece (no Popeye's - no pun intended) before Slaughterhouse officially drops? Hmmm...
Peep the cover of the EP (EPic) over at LIZ's spot. I'll cough up some more Deal ditties in the near future, more near than the release of EPic. Cryptic posting FTW.

EDIT Looks like Universal greenlit a Michael Jackson: Remix Suite 1, with cats like The Neptunes, Dallas Austin, Salaam Remi (who's dubstep track did he jack now?) and Stargate flippin' MJ remixes alongside the above Polow one. What say you?

Let me back up... the other day, my wife made plans for us to go to the Jersey Shore tonight with a friend of hers, and I figured "let's make a CD". I knew I had to include Eminem's "The Warning", b/c homegirl is a big Em fan. Now, we keep it fair and balanced (no Fox News) over here, so of course I had to throw in the "Obsessed" remix with Gucci Mane on it. As I was trying to piecemeal a tracklist for the hour-plus drive, I figured "why not throw in a bunch of tracks that I've messed with over this summer"and ish came together. Some of the inclusions are just ignant ("Gimme $20"), as I usually have one ignant Rap song that I play back-to-back over the summer (remember the Iconz' "Get Fucked Up"?). Others are straight undeniable jawns from the past few months ("Romping Shop", Mario's "Break Up", Drake's "Best I Ever Had"), which are also a testament to my increased listening to Hot 97 (big up to Nobex). Hell, I even included an interlude from the Hot 97 Morning Show with Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg! All of these tracks have gotten some play from me since the unofficial start of summer, and will likely be the tracks I remember from the Summer of '09. Check it out.
01/Mariah Carey ft. Gucci Mane "Obsessed (Remix)"
02/Verse Simmonds ft. Yung Joc "Buy You A Round"
03/Mario ft. Gucci Mane & Sean Garrett "Break Up"
04/Trey Songz "I Need A Girl"
05/Cassie ft. Diddy "Must Be Love"
06/Amerie ft. Rick Ross, Cain, Jadakiss & Nas "Why R U (Remix)"
07/Vybz Kartel ft. Spice "Romping Shop"
08/Jamie Foxx ft. T-Pain "Blame It (Ted Smooth Remix)"
09/Rick Ross The Boss: Brain Buster (interlude)
10/DJ Class ft. Kanye West "I'm The Shit (Remix)"
11/N.O.R.E. ft. Nina Sky "Shoulders Move"
12/Eve "Me N My (Up In Da Club)"
13/Cam'ron "Spend The Night"
14/Tea Bag Boys ft. Ron Browz & Red Cafe "Gimme $20"
15/Drake "Best I Ever Had"
16/Young Money "Every Girl"
17/50 Cent "Touch Me"
18/Eminem "The Warning"
19/Eminem & Mr. Porter "Chonkyfire Freestyle (Live On Westwood)" (Bonus Track)
Come on, a trip to the Jersey Shore in 2009 and NOT including Cam's DJ Kaycee-biting "Spend The Night"? Pure blasphemy. These are the songs that will have me thinking about my first BlackBerry, or the humid nights in Jersey. Or my early mornings in my cubicle, streaming Hot 9-7. This is (a part of) my Summer of 2009 soundtrack, for good or ill.

With this, and the recent fuckery with PayPal, it looks like someone doesn't want niggas like me accessing the Internets.
EDIT Sam Han blogged about the geopolitics of this attack. Interesting post.
Jose M. Rodriguez, 28, was booked on seven new charges and on three active warrants. Raiders executing a search warrant at his house grabbed 45 grams of suspected marijuana and 10 grams of suspected cocaine... Rodriguez was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance (cocaine); possession of CDS (marijuana); possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school; intent to distribute within 500 feet of a school; possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; maintaining a narcotic nuisance, and on three active warrants.
My thing is, you do the crime, you don't whimper like a fucking bitch.

PS You guys do know that Ciph & Rosenberg have the full morning show at Hot 97, right? No? Probably because Hot 97 hasn't announced it officially. They keep making comments about "just listen", which is true, but there's been no full-fledged official release about it - plus, Hot 97 still has "5AM to 7AM" listed, but they are definitely in the 5AM to 10AM slot. It's quality radio, regardless.

Bonus Beats Benga "E Trips"... someone let me know what Salaam Remi did with this track, if anything? Maybe I'm the only one who cares, or noticed (well, aside from Dart Adams), but it perplexes me. Can Benga not stand alone, or did Remi really throw some magic in there?
And not for nothing, but Dondub blacked out on this one.

What's Timbaland doing on this? Why do I not feel good with "additional production" credits from MGMT? I'm losing hope on this one. 2009 has been a bust in terms of quality Hip-Hop releases... at least from major labels. My favorite albums are free. Via 2DBz.
