The Great Gazoo

I admit it - ya boy is a nerd. I watch all kinds of cartoons, but the new ish just doesn't appeal to me. I've sent numerous e-mails to Cablevision in the past, trying to get Boomerang added to my TV channel list. Well, this weekend I found out that I finally got it!

See, I like balance. I hate having my son ONLY exposed to Nickelodeon shit like Spongebob or Fairly Oddparents, which are great shows but not necessarily what he should be exposed to on the regular. And TBH, sometimes he just isn't feeling Noggin (he rides for Diego, though). I also want him to be exposed to quality classic cartoons, ish I grew up with, so he can get a bit of variety without a bunch of off-color humor that he doesn't really need to be hearing. So Boomerang it is!

And, well, I'm Nerdcore McNerdy. I need that Wacky Races fix every now and again.

Wise Intelligent's Intelligent Kidz, Inc. group and Wildseed Films linked up to form INTELLIGENTSEEDZ, and created a short documentary on the effects of lead poisoning on inner city children. It looks like a grip of this (if not all) was shot in Trenton, NJ:

This will be released in July. I'm trying to see this.

KJ Eclipse The Calling Mixtape

The other day, I got hit with a batch of mixtapes and releases from a bunch of new artists. KJ Eclipse, reppin' East NY and Georgia, was one of the more engaging cats. Peep "Hip-Hop Will Rock":

Just the fact that he had a pretty cool (albeit low-budget) video, and that this nigga can RAP? Makes me think of how Jay used to flow back before Reasonable Doubt came about - not trying to say he on that level, but the flow is ill and he is actually stringing together some fresh lines. Grab the tape, and get transported back...

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of May 27, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

This week's commentary focused on how the mainstream & independent media has covered the accidental and tragic passing of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's daughter this week, the recent news story of 29 Year Old Man with 21 Kids (ridiculous) and some other things here and there.

The syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast was honored to have a great interview with one of the MCs in the legendary Hip-Hop crew, The Fat Boys (http://www.originalfatboys.com), Kool Rock Ski (http://www.koolrockski.com).

During the interview, we covered everything from Kool Rock Ski's beginning history with Hip-Hop & the founding of the Fat Boys, the evolution of how the music industry has treated Hip-Hop, especially when it started getting popular (and folks reaching for pop music status) & how it affected The Fat Boy's career, the passing of Buffy the Human Beat Box, Kool Rock Ski's triumph with weight issues, The Fat Boy's upcoming music & community projects and a lot 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 BlackRadioIsBack.com - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.

Serius Jones Why So Serius Mixtape

Serius Jones is one of those NJ spitters that I wish I heard more from on a consistent basis, so when new material of his drops, I'm all over it. If you're not familiar with his work, grab this right now then smack the SHIT out of yourself. One for the whip, no doubt.

Milly July Sneak Chamber Mixtape

"This ain't Hip-Hop, this is something else" is the e-mail I got this morning; yesterday, Milly July dropped her Sneak Chamber mixtape, and after a listen on the busride to work today, I tend to agree with that notion. I was immediately floored by track 1 ("Sneak Chamber"), and got caught up in some of the cuts ("No Paper", "Summer", etc.)... this 23 year old Bmore rapstress has some things going on. It's definitely not the regular shit you hear from a male OR female, but that's its charm. Leftfield beat selections, rhymes that make you think a bit (while not being so overly wordy OR complicated) and an overall appreciation for being ill - its also executive produced by Judah, so you should already know. I also had no idea homegirl wrote for hypebeast. Nice one. Another DMV banger.

Elucid "My Mayor Is A Billionaire (BBC)"

Elucid "My Mayor Is A Billionaire (BBC)": Let me tell you - I've been WAITING to get this one out to the heads out there. With Elucid's Sub Bass Diet project nearing completion, I'm finally able to share some of these hybrid treats with all of you! Here, Gutta speaks on the financial crisis that has hit a lot of people in the last, oh, 6-8 months, highlighting one of the truly glaring ironies with these situations: the fuckers who are out here debating and trying to fix these financial problems we deal with are motherfuckers who don't even get affected! Hopping atop a bouncy cut from Joker, Elucid created a true anti-establishment anthem in these monetarily difficult times we live in. Blast this one the next time you see some rich, suit-wearing ass politician telling you how he is gonna help you and your plight.

Fokis "Internet Going Nuts"

Fokis "Internet Going Nuts" (prod. by d.C.): Fokis definitely has his 'Net game on lock. This track is a perfect example of how he gets his digital grind on. Maybe you MCs/producers looking for a how-to should study this one.

How he ain't throw RTD in this track is beyond me, but I'm not mad.

Sean Wyze The Sunday LP

You know what happens on Sundays? If you're a party person, you are probably resting up from merkin' your mental on Friday and Saturday. Sean Wyze's The Sunday LP (presented by Cali So Live) is something you can knock from Friday and go through to Sunday, from the high to the mellow to the cool out. Grab it for free HERE: the homey Jansport J did like 3 tracks off there, including my favorite "LA". Don't sleep... even if Wyze is!
