My Lord. Grind never stops!

The boy DJ Nappy got invites to the Raekwon show at The Terrace Club in Princeton, NJ earlier today, and came back with some video of opening spitter Action Bronson live, performing in the crowd. You already know. Another clip after the jump.

I'm fucked up right now. Word is that MCA has passed away at 47, succombing to the cancer that he was diagnosed with in 2009. Don't be surprised if I'm not rocking to all new music this weekend. I grew up on the Beastie Boys, dog. Hell, they just got inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (which airs on HBO tomorrow night). I wasn't the biggest fan of their newer material, but the old stuff? And MCA always had the older dude in the crew flavor. I liked each member of the Beasties for different reasons, but the older god vibe MCA gave off was the key. Damn. Check out MCA on Juan Epstein from four years ago, where he was talking about the ill b-ball movie he made, Gunnin' For That #1 Spot. Damn, I'm fucked up off this. Blast some Beasties, two times.
DOPE episode right here. Another one of those classic Juan Eps where you really get to learn about what makes someome tick. This one features both Romany Malco (who's featured in Think Like A Man, and you probably know from 40 Year Old Virgin, Weeds and other shows as "the Black dude") and comedian Anthony Jeselnik, who you probably know mainly from the Comedy Central roasts (Charlie Sheen's specifically). Take 85 minutes out of your day and enjoy this one. Shouts again to @AreaFY.

I believe "Long Time Comin'" was a Japanese import bonus track, from Payback, and word is "Goodbye Love" is off the UK import version. Like I said then, I just wanna hear the American version in its entirety. Danny! cooks up the ultime "suck my dick" song to the female that dithces before his stock rose. I imagine there might be a few fairweather friends blowing up his spot right now, so he can get this one off. Not mad at it, especially because Swain has a sound on this one that's stepped in that early '90s New Jack swing flavor, sonically. Payback coming soon?

Che Grand is one of those cats who such a talented individual, it infuriates me that he's not in a bigger space right now. Dude's influenced by so much, you can hear it in his projects, but when you get ZFTP mixes like this, where he throws a lot of tunes that he's feeling into a box, shakes it up and records how they fall out, you really get to see the parts that help shape the man. Lots of intriguing sounds here, some more downtempo, others with a quicker pace. No tracklist - just marvel in the excellence, and get some ice - your face is melting!
I'm not that sold on A$AP Rocky as an artist, so it's always good to hear MCs I fuck with killin' beats like this. Feel like Dutch has a new hunger streak, but it's not a game. Don't be surprised if he fucks your plans up, trust.

Here's a quirky cut from History Will Absolve Me that puts me in a zone I used to be in. I remember days where I was depressed and spent a lot of time contemplating parts of my life in a weed haze. Shit can be kind of crazy, especially when the depression is born from dealing with a chick. So I can relate to this. This got premiered by My Old Kentucky Blog (well, not my blog... nevermind), and I thank them for dropping this one.

Little Juan Epstein extra with Wiz Khalifa, some behind the scenes ish with Amber Rose's man. My Lord, they go in on the movie coming with Snoop, among other things. Word from Rosenberg is that there's ANOTHER awesome episode coming soon! They're hitting that stride! And if you missed it, peep video of Rosenberg and Wiz Khalifa talking about "drinking and driving" lyrics. Shouts to @AreaFY for helping me rock to this at work.

I was just gushing over this cut, which is my Spring/Summer 2012 guilty obsession. SJL recently finished up a remix and video for "Forgot to Forget" (which is the next single off the My Favorite Demons EP) that's set to drop next week. They added some fly bits to the "Same Damn Time" instrumental and just murder it. No rapping about wearing Gucci and cooking dope, just some sick shit from the Cloud Club.

All about this, since I saw the video over the weekend. Scram did the damn thing on the beat, and Noreaga knew just how to attack it. I could give a fuck if Brian McKnight drops the mixtape or not, I'm glad that debacle produced this track. Shouts to Mr. X.

I was waiting for this one to go down. I missed Saturday's Garden Variety show, and of course it was the one that featured Feed's video shoot, Tone Liv as the hypeman AND some static/conflict that included threats being thrown?! Wow. Shouts to Divine and Phil for doing what they do - they drop some SERIOUS '90s flavor throughout the show. Don't miss this one!
